Mr Toombs said that ne had prepared himself to ?pe.ik on the failure of the Committee of Thirteen to Come to a determination, but would as soon speak on thf resolution offered by Mr. Crittenden it made no difference. The success of the abolitionists and their sll?>es had produced Its 5 legitimate results That the Union was dissolved was a flied fact. One of the confederate States had Wtselv. boldlvurtd hravelv left the Remibllr. The other Southern States regard her ciuse their cause, and suy "Touch lot Saguntum " They were willing to remain In the L'nion ai long as ? jns'lce ard fraWnity was maintained, bat when i that was forgotten they had appealed to the awoid. e He approved their course, and should present their cause to the Senate, the country, and the civilized world. His people did not want a new union or any new constitutional rights; all they e wanted was justice and the enjoyment of their constitutional privilege*. He demanded that the , General Government should protect their property * In the Territories. Protection Is the price of 9 obedience; and without It you cannot have free t citizens; you might have slaves The republic#ns, y in refusing to carry the fugitive slave law into effect, are treacherous to their oaths and their ' compacts. Mr Toombs then read from the stjtute-booksof y several Northern States In relation to the fugitive rj slave law, and said that the principles of the perk sonal liberty bills are the principles of Mr Llncoin. The right to carry slave property Into the 1 Territories he would never compromise on earth. i. fifonHa is In th#? riorht nath th*>r*? 1a nn a*?t t1 ?_ ment short of her full rights. Not one In ten In middle Georgia, and not more tban one In a bundred in the mountain* owned slaves, but they are y determined that Georgia shall hare her rights If they cannot obtain them peaceably, they will apneal to the god of bnttlei. e On motion of Mr. Bigler, the Senate went Into j executive session After some consideration upon executive business, the door* were thrown open; and. on motion of Mr. Slidell, the Senate adjourned * till Wednesday next. s Hocsk?After our reporter left? ; On motion of Mr Sherman, the House resolved u into Committee of the Whole, (Mr Etberidge In , the chair,) for the further consideration of the legislative, executive, and judicial appropriation ? bill. t Mr. Sherman offered amendmenU appropri;t atlng (-20,000 for refurnishing the President's House, and for introducing the Potomac water inio me same; agreed xo. c The Committee then rose and reported the bill g and ainettdments to the House, when r Mr Sherman moved the previous question, and the amendments were accepted, and the bill was r passedMr Etherldge asked consent of the House to i- introduce a resolution having for its object the amendment of the Constitution. He would have the resolution read from the Clerk's desk, and have them printed, as he did not waut any action 11 taken upon them unt.l they bad been read and e fully understood by e^ch roember. s They provide that Congress shall have no power j to interfere with slavery In any of the States, navy-yards, arsenals, dock-vards, forts, or other * plat es ceded to the United States That Congress - shall have no power to interfere with or abolish slavery In the District of Columbia, without the g consent of Marvland and Virginia and the inhabitants of the District, and without making just r compensation therefor It further provide for the i restoration of ^e Mifsonrl Compromise line No e territory shall hereafter be add?dtothe United S'Stes without the concurrent vote of two-thirds ' of both Houses of Congress. And lastly, any pere so'i fleeing from justice from one State into ans another, shall be given up on requisition of the s Governor of the State In which the offense is com, mitt-d Mr Etberidge moved a suspension of the rules In order to get a vote upon his proposition The yeas and nays were called, resulting?yeas it b3, nays 79 0 Mr Adrain moved the following resolution: Rf solved, That we fully approve of the bold and * patriotic conduct of Major Anderson in with11 drawing fiom Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter, and y 01 m? determination of the President to retain ,r that fearless officer in bis present position, and that we will support the President In all consti'* tutional measures to enforce the laws and preserve i- the I'nion. e On which the yeas were 1^4, nays 53, after an exciting debate.

Washisotos, Dec 9S, 1W0.

In the execution of this trust, it is our duty ta fnrnlsii you, as we now do, with an official copy of the ordinance of secession, by which tbe 8tate of South Carolina has resumed the powers the delegated to tbe Government of the United States, and nas declared her perfect sovereignty %nd independence. It would also have b?en our duty toxhave Informed you that we were ready (o negotiate with you upon all such questions as are necessarily raised by the adoption of this ordinance, and that we were prepared to enter upon this negotiation with the earnest desire to avoid ail unnecessary and hostile collision, and so to inaugurate our n?jv relations as to secure mutual respect, general ?% < uiiM?K^f aim a tuiuir U1 ^Ut?U W ill fllU D8 Till Oil y j beneficial to all the parties concerned Hut the event* of the last twenty-four hour* render Mich an assurance Impossible. We came here the representatives of an authority which could at any time within the pant sixty days have taken pos*?ssion of the forts in Charleston harbor, but upon pledges given in a manner that we cannot doubt, determined to trust to your honor rather than to its ottn power. Since our arrival an officer of the United States, acting, as we afe ass ired, not only without, but against your orders, has dismantled one fort and occupied another, thus altering to a most important extent the condition of affairs under which we came.

VV. Barnwell,) J H. Adam#, j Commissioners Jambs L. Orb, ) To the President of the United States. thi president's reply. Washin&ton City, I>er 30, 1?>?0 Gentlemen : 1 have had the honor to receive your communication cf2bth inst , together with a copy of "your full powers of Jhe Conventton of the people of South Carolina," authorising you to m-at with the Government of the United States on various important subjects therein mentioned, and also a copy of the ordinance, bearing date on the 'Mlth inct <' ???< rw? n 1 ? ?W?M ? UVVtUI 1 VUQ1 "* Kllf. t IlKin ftOW JUD" sisting between South Carolina and other State*, under the name of the ' United States of America,' it hereby dissolved " In answer to this communication. I have to say that mv position, as President of the United States, was clearly defined in the nr es*age to Congress on the 3d Inst In that I s'ated that,41 apart from the execution of the laws, so far as this may be practicable, the Ex?-cntive has no authority to decide what shall be tie relations between the Federal Government and South Carolina. He has been invested with no such discretion. He possesses no power to change the relation* heretofore existing between their much less to ackaowledge the independence of that State This would be to invest a mere executive officer with the power of recognising the dissolution of the confederacy among our thirty-tnree sovereign States. It bears no resemblance to the recognition of a foreign dt facto government involving no such responsibility. Any attempt to do this would, on his part, be a naked act of usurpation. It Is, therefore, my duty to submit to Congress the whole question tn all its bearings." Such is my opinion still 1 could, therefore, meet you only u private gentlemen of the highest character, and was entirely willing to communicate to Congress any proposition you might hive to make to that body upon the subject. Of this you were well aware It was my earnest desire that such a disposition might be -made of the Whole SllbieCt bV COfUrrp** whn aUn? ??? o the power, as t?> prevent the inauguration of a civil war between the parties iu regard to the possession of the federal forts in the harbor of Charleston, and 1 therefore deeply regret that, In your opinion, *' the events of tue last twenty-four hours rendered th.s impossible." In coiclusion, you urge upon me 14 the immediate withdrawal of the troops from the harbor of Charleston," stating that 44 under the present circumstances they a^e a standing menace, which renders negotiation impossible, and as our recent experience shows, threatens speedily to bring to a bloody issue questions which ought to be settled with temperance and judgment." Tne reason for this chmge in your position la, that since your arrival in W ashington, "an officer of the L'nfted states, acting as we (you) are assured not only without, but against your (my) orders, has dismantled one fort and occupied another, thus altering, to a most important extent, the condition of affairs under which we (you) came " You also allege that you came here the " representatives of an authority which could at any time with the pest sixty days have taken po?sessiou of the forta in Charleston harbor, but which, upon pledges given In a maimer that we (you) cannot doubt, determined totrust to your (my) honor Mthfr th*n to \tm r This brings me to a consideration of the nature of these alleged pledges, and in what manner they have been observed lu my message of tbe 3d of December last, 1 stated In regard to tbe property of the United States in South Carolina, that it " has b;en purchased for a fair equivalent by tbe consent of the Legislature of the State, for tbe erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, tc? and over the authority to exercise exclusive legislation has been expressly granted by the constitution to Congress it is not believed that any attempt will be made to expel the United States from this property by force; but !f in this 1 should prove to be mlstakeu tbe officer in command of the forts has received orders to act strictly on the defensive lu such a contingency tbe responsibility for consequences would rightfully rest upon the heads of the assailants.'1 This >?eing the condition of the parties, on Saturday, bth December, four of tbe representatives from South Carolina called on me, and requested an interview. We had an earnest conversation 011 the subject of tbese forts, a id the best means of preventing a collision between the parties, for the purpose of sparing the effusion of blood 1 suggested, for prudential reasons, that it would be best to put in writing what they *aid to me verbally. They did so accordingly," and on Monday morning, the ll)th Instant, three of them presented to me a paper, signed by all the representatives from Soutb Carolina, with a single exception, of which the following lia copy: a LT. - P '' ' ^ " 1V jiu njcceitencj/ james JSurhanan, Prtiidtnt of the United Statet: In compliance with our statement to you yesterday, we now express to you our strong convictions that neitLer the constituted authorities, nor any body of the people of the State of South Carolina, will either attack or molest the Uulted States forts in the harbor of Charleston previously to the I action of the convention, and we hope and beI lieve not until an offer has been made through an accredited representative to negotiate for an amicable arrangement of all matters between the State and the Federal Government, provided that no reinforcements shall be sent into those forts, and their relative military status shall remain as at present. Johs McQuem, M L Bonham, WW Boyck, Lauhf.nck M. Kkitt. Washington, 8th December, 1830. And here 1 must, in justice to myself, remark that at the time the paper was presented to me, 1 objected to the word "provided," as it might be construed into nn agreement nn mi/ ?u i - n ? ?/ * ?UiCB 1 never would make. They snid that nothing was further from their intention?they did not po understand it, and I should not aocomider it. It is evident ttey could enter into no reciprocxl a^reAnent with me on the subject. They did not Frofesa to have authority to do this, and were actng in their individual character 1 considered it as nothing more in effert than the promise of highly honorable gentlemen to exert their influence for the purposes expressed. The event has proven that they have faithfully kept their promise, although 1 have never since received a line from any one of them, or from any member on the subject. It is well known it waa my determination, and this 1 freely expressed, hot to reinforce the forts in the harbor and thus produce a collision, until they had been actually att&rked, or until I had certain evidence that they were about to be attacked. This paper 1 received moat cordially, and considered it as a harpy omen that peace might still be preserved, and that time might be thus given for reflection. Thia Is the whole foundation for the alleged pledge But I acted In the aam* ? ner * i would have done bad I entered into a poattive and formal agreement with parti ea capable of contracting, although auch an agreement would have been, on my part, from the nature of my ottclal duties, lmpoeafble. The world knows that I hare narer aent any relnforoemanta to the -w ? ' forte in Charleston harbor, and I have certainly new authorized any change tobe made in their relative military status. Bearflhs upon thi* subj?*:t, I refer you'to an order lssaed by the Secretary of War. on the 11th Inst, to Major Anderson. bat not brought to my notice until the *2i&t lost It Is ? follows: "Memorandum of Ttrbal ftutnteitoat to Motet Andtrson, First Arttllrrf, Commanding Fort Mowltrio, Stutk Carolina : \ o irt iwari of l ha greet anxiety of the Secretary of War that a collision of the trooptf with the people of thU State shall be avoided, and of his studied determination to pursue a eourae with reference to the military force and forts in this harbor which shall guard aralnat

such a collision He baa. therefore, carefully abstained from increasing the force at this point, or taking any measure which might add to the present excited state of the public mind, or which would throw any doubt oil tbe confidence he feels tbat South Carolina will not attempt by violence to obtain possession of the public works, or interfere with their occupancy. ' But aa the counael and acta of rash and Impulsive persona may poaslbly disappoint tbt-se expectations of tbe government, he deems It proper tl at you should be prepared with Instructions to meet so unhappy a contingency He has, therefore, directed me verbally to give such instructions. "You are carefully to avoid every act which would needlessly tend to provoke aggression, and for that rMtnn va? * **? A - - - ?V uv>f ITtUiVUi UCVTHliy, w take up any position which rould be construed Into the assumption of a hostile attitude; but yoB are to hold possession of the forts in this harbor, and if attacked you are to defend yourself to the last extremity. " The smallness of your force will not permit voti, perhaps, to occupy more than one of the three forts, but an attack on, or attempt to take possession of either of them, will be regarded as an act of hostility, and you may then put your command Into either of th?tn which you msy deem rrost proper to increace its power of resistance. You are also authorized to take similar steps wheneVef you have tangible evidence of a design to proceed to a hostile act -'D P. Bctlxk, "Assistant Adjutant-General. "fort Moultrie, S. C , Dec. 11,~1?G0 " "Thii is in conformity to my instruction* to Msjor Buell. "Joh* B. Flotd, "Secretary of War.'' These were tbe last instructions transmitted to Major Anderson before bis removal to Fort Sumter, with a s ngle exception, in regard tr. s particular which do?'s not in any degree affect the firesent question Under t clear that Major Anderson acted upon bis own responsibility and without authority, unless, indf-ed. Le had '-tangible evidence of a design to Firoceed to a hostile act" on the part of the authorties of South Carolina, which has not been alleged Still he is a brave and honorable officer, and justice requires that he should not be condemned without a fair hearing. Be this as it may, when I learned that Major Anderson had left Fort Moultrie and proceeded to Fort Sumpter, my lirst promptings were to command him to return to his former position, and there await the contingencies presented in his instructions This would onlv have been done with any degree of safety to tbe command by the concurrence of tbe South Carolina authorities. But before any steps could possibly have been taken in this direction, we received information that tbe '* Palmetto flag floated out to the breew at ('aitl* Plni Vn?v 1 ?? I . ?lu U laific 111 111 va I V force went over last night (the 27th) to Fort Moultrie " Thus, the authorities of South Carolina, without awaiting or asking for any explanations, and, doubtless, believing as you expressed It, that the officer bad acted not only without, but against my orders, on the very next day after the night wben tlie ren oval was made, seized by a military force two of the three federal forts In the harbor of Charleston, and liave covered them under their own Hag, Instead of that of the llclted States At this gloomy period of our history, startling events succeed each itber rapidly On the very day, the 27th inst , that possession of these two forts was taken, the Palmetto flag was raised over the Fe<tcral custom-bous? and post office In Charleston, and on the same day every officer of the customs?collector, naval officer, surveyor and appraiser?resigned their offices And this, although It was well known, from the language of my message, that, as an Executive oibcer. I felt myself bound to collect tl)e revenue at th* port of Charleston under the existing laws. In the harbor of Charleston we now find three forts confronting each other, over all of which the Federal flag floated only four days ago; but now, over two of them, this flag has been supplanted, and the Palmetto flag has been substituted In its stead. It is under all these circumstances that I am urged immediately to withdraw the troops from the harbor of Charleston, and am informed that negotiation is Impossible This I cannot do; this I will not do. Such an idea was never thought of by me in any possible contingency. No such allusion had been made In any communication between myself and any human being. But the inference Is that I am bound to withdraw the troops from the only fort remaluing in tue possession of the United States in the harbor of Charles ton, because the officer there in command of all the forts thought proper, without instructions, to change his position from one of then, to another. At this point of writing I have received information by telegraph from Cajotain Humphreys, in wuiiiioiiu vri me ariniai ui LDBTIPBlon , I Li lit 4* It L<ts to day (Sunday, 3?tb.) been taken by force of arm* " It is estimated that the munitions of war belonging to the United States in this arsenal are worth half a million of dollars Comment is needless. After this information I have only to add that whilst it is my duty to defend Fort Sumter, as a portion of th?; public property of the United States against hostile attacks from whatever quarter they may coine, bv such means ;.s I may possess for this purpose, I do not perceive how such a defence can l?e coii&tr led Into a men:i?e against the citv of Charleston. With great personal regard. 1 remain yours very respectfully. James Bucha.nan To Honorable Robert W. Barnwell, Jautes II. Adams, James L Orr. AXOT1IER LETTER TO TUE PRK?1DS*T. Washimgto*. D C., Jan 1,1?61. Sir : We have tb?* honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 3<Jtb December, la reply to a note addressed by ua to you on the -^th of the s*me month, as Commissioners from South Carolina. In reference to the declaration with which your reply commence?, that your ' position as President of the United States was clefrly d'llned in the message to Congress on the 3d instant,'' tbat you possess *'no power to change the relations heretofore existing" between South Carolina and the States, -'much l<ssto acknowledge tbe Independence of that State," and that consequently you could meet us only at private gentlemen of the highest character, with an entire willlnguess to communicate to Congress any proposition we might have to make," we deem It only neceasary to say that the State of South Carolina having, in tbe exercise of tbat great right of self-government which underlies all our political organizations, declared herself sovereign and independent, we, as her representatives, felt no special solicitude as to the ch-iructer in which you mlghtrecognize us. S:tti th*t tK* vital* J i .MV uuuaiiiipijr rirrtiw u LCT unquestionable right, we were prepared, order to reach substantial good, to waive Ibe formal cons.derations which your constitutional scruples might Lave prevented you from extending. We caine here, therefore, expecting to be received as you did receive us, and perfectly content with that entire willingness, of which you as#ur?d us, to submit anv proposition to Coujjrets, which we might have to make upon tbe subject of the Independence of the State. That willingness was ample recognition of the condition of public affairs which rendered our presence necessary. I t this position, however, It is our duly, both to the Stite wnir.b we represented and to ourselves, to correct several important misconceptions of our letter, Into which you have fallen. You say " It was my earnest desire that such a disposition should be mnde of the whole subject by Congress, who alone possess the power to pre vent the inauguration of a civil war between the parties In regard to the possession of tbe Federal forts la the harbor of Charleston, and I therefore deeply regret, in vour opinion, 'the events of the last twenty-four hours render this impossible ' " We expressed no such opinion, and the language which you quote as ours is aJtered in its sense by the omission of n moat important part of tbe seutence What we did say was, " But the events of the last twentv-four hours render such [ an assurance impossible." Place that "assurance" as contained In our letter In the sentence, find WP * PP nronarfi/l ?/? 1 * | ?? v mv |>i v|#^>i w ?v i v jn. a t i%. Again. professing to quote our language, you a*y :? ? Thin, the authorities of South Carolina, without waiting or ssking lor any explanation, and doubtleaa believing, at you have expressed it, that the officer had acted not only without but against my orders," &c. We. expreaaed no auch opinion in reference to the belief of the people of 9?uth Carolina. The language which you have quoted waa applied solely and entirely to ?cur aasurancea, obtained here, and baaed, aa you well know, upon your own declaration, a declaration which, at that time, It waa impoaaible for the authoritiea of South Carolina to nave known But, without following thla letter Into all lta details, we propose only to meet the chief point* of the argument. . Some weeks ago the State of South Carolina declared her intention, in the existing condition of public affairs, to secede from the United States. Ol. II - i - - ? - duo caiifa convention of her people to put her declaration In force The convention met and passed an ordinance of secession. All this you anticipated, and your course of action was thoroughly considered. la your annusl message vuu declared you bad no right and would not attempt to coerce a acceding State, bat that you were bound by your constitutional oath, and would defend the property of the United States within the borders of South Carolina, If an attempt was made to take It by force. Seeing very clearly that this queatloa of property was a difficult and delicate one, you maal- j fasted a desire to settle it without collision. You Aid not reinforce the garrison la the harbor of | Charleston You removed a distinguished and t -?m~- - ' veteran offlcef tuna tke lewik of Fort NmItrie because he attempted to >aer?MC bis aapplv 1 of ammoaltloa.

Which be bad taken to arm bis men 1 oo rtpraard. not to one, bat to many of tho moat distinguished of oar public Characters, wboee testimony will be plsOed upon tbe record, sSbeneTer It Is neceeaary. your anxiety for a peaceful termination of tbls coatro ; verav, ana your willingness not to disturb the i military status of the forts,if commissioner* should : be sent to the government, whose coiiiicunlcaj tlon* you promised to submit to Congress | Vou received and acted on assurances from the highest official authorities of South Carolina, thit no attempt would be made to disturb your pessession of the forts ad property of the United State* If yoo woaid not disturb their eiletiag condition until the commissioners had been seat, and the attempt to negotiate had tailed You took from the members of the House of Representative* a written memorandum that Vo such attempt should be made, "provided that no reinforcements shall be sent Into those forts snd the r relative military status shall remainasat present." And although vou attach no force to the accept' ance of such a paper ?although you "coasldtfed it as nothing mor? in effect than the promise of highly honorable gentlemen," as an obligation on one side without a corresponding obligation on the oth*r. It must be remembered (If we are rightly Inform'd) that you were pledged, if yon ever did send reinforcements, to return it to those from whom you bad received It before you executed your resolution. i vu rm uiuna w jvui uutn* vuuitmnain| them, strictly to fallow a line of conduct In conformity with such nn understanding Betide* all this, you hud received formal and official notice from the Governor of South Carolina that we bad been appointed commissioners, and were on our way to Washington You knew the Implied condition under which we came; our arrival was notified to yon. and an hour appointed for au interview. We arrived In Washington on Wed? nesday, at three o'clock, and you appointed til interview with us at one the next day Early on that day (Thursday) the news wu received here of the movement of Major dpderson. Th?t newt was communicated to you immediately, and yon postponed our meeting until half-piat two o'clock on Friday, in order that you might consult your cabinet On Fridsy we aaw you and we called upon you then to redeem your pledge. You could not deny it With the facta we have stated, and In the face of the crownlftg and conclusive fact that your Secretary of War bad re* signed his seat in the cabinet upon the publicly avowed ground that the action or Major Anderson kad violated the pledged faith of the government, and that unless the pledge was instantly redeemed bf was dishonored, denial was impossible. You do not deny it now, but you seek to escape from It* obligation* on tbe grounds, 1st?that we torminatf-d nil nna hv rifnmnrii ncr mm a preliminary, the withdrawal oi tbe United States troop* from tbe harbor of Charleston) and 'id?-that the authorities of South Carolina, Instead of uk< Inn an explanation, and giving you the opportunity to vindicate yourself, took possession of other property of the United States. We will examine In the first place, we Artw positively that we have ever, in any Way,-made any such demsnd Our letter is In vour possession; It will stand by this on record In it we Inform you of tbe objects of our mission We say that It would have been our duty to have cisurta you of our readiness to j commence negotiations, with the most earnest de| sire to settle all questions between us amicably j and to our mutuil ad ventage, but that events had I rendered that assurance impossible. We stated | the events, and we said that until some sitisfaci torv explanation of these events was given us. we could not proceed, and then, having inadetbis request for explauation, we added : " And, In conclusion. we would urge upou you the Immediate withdrawal of the tro >ps from tbe harbor of Charleston. Under present circumstances they are a standing menace which renders negotiation Impossible," kc. "Under present circumstances!" What circumstances? Why, clearlv the occupation of F?rt Sumter and tbe dismantling of Fort Moultrie by Major Anderson, In tte face of your pledges, and without explsnation or practical disavowal. And there 1? nothing in the letter which would or could have prevented you from declining to withdraw th* troops and offering the restoration of tbe status to which you were pledged. If such had been your desire It would have been wiser and better, In our opinion, to have withdrawn th?* trocps; and this opinion we urged tfpon vou, but we demnndtd nothing but such an explanation of the eveuts of the last twenty-four hours as would ristore our confidence in the spirit with which the negotialons should be conducted. In relation to thi? withdrawal of the troops from the harbo", we are compelled, however, to notice one passage of your letter Referring to It you say, "This I cannot do. This I will not do. Such an idea was never thought of by me In any posI sible contingency ft* allusion to It had ever | been made in any communication between myself and auv human being " lu reply to this statement we are compelled to say it, that your conversation w .th us left upon our minds tbe distinct Impression that you did aerl* ously contemplate tbe withdrawal of the troops from Charleston harbor. And in support of this impression we would add that we have tbe post; tive assurance of gentlemen of the highest possible j public reputation and tbe most uusulliea iuteg| rity?men whose name aud f-tme, secured by long 'service and patriotic achievement, place j their testimony beyond cavil?that such snirm. j tious bad been made to and urged upon you by j them, and hid formed the subject of more than , one earnest discussion with you And It was this J knowledge that induced ui to urge upnn you a j policy which had, to recommend It, It* own wisdom and the weight of such authority. j As to the second po: ut, that the authorities of I South Carolina, instead of asking explanations j and giving you the opportunity to vindicate yourself, took possession of other property of the I I'nited States, we would observe, first, that evej ! if this were so it does not avail you for defense, ' for the opportunity for decision was afforded you before these facts occurred We arrived in Wasb, lag ton on Wednesday. The news from Major Anderson reached here early on Thuradsy, and I was Immediately communicated to you All that dav men of the highest consideration? men who had striven successfully to lift you to your great office?who hid been your tried and true friends through the trouble* of vour administration? sought you, and entreated you to act?to act at once. I They told you that every hour complicated your position. They only asked you to give the assurance that if the facts were so?that if the commander had ar ted without and against your orders, and in violation of your pledges?that you would I restore the status you baa pledged your honor to i maintain. You refused to decide. Vour Secretary of War?vour Immediate and proper adviser 1 _ & 1 I _ L - ? ??

More than twelve hours passed, and two Cabinet meetings bad adjourned before you knew what the authorities of South Carolina bad done, and your prompt decision at any moment of tbat time wou.d h ive avoided the subsequent complications. but if you bad known the acts of the authorities of r?outi Carolina, should tbat have prevent* d your keeping ycur faith! What was the condition of things? For the last sixty days I you have b:.d in Charleston harbor not force enou-.b to bold the forts against an equal enemy. Two of them wtre empty ; one of thoee, loo, the | must important in the harbor. It could have been i taken any time You ought to know better than any man that it would have been taken but for the (Sorts of those who put their trust lu your i honor. Believing tbat they were threatened bv Fort I Sumter especially, the people were with di Acuity restrained from securing, without blood, the poi< session of this important fortress After many I and rt iterated anurance* given on your behalf, ! which we cannot believe-unauthorized, they determined to forbear, and In good ftith sent on meir commissioners to negotiate with you. They meant you no barm; wliLrd you no ill. They thought of you kindly; believed you true; aid , were willing, as far as was consistent with duty, to spsre you unnecessary and hostile collision. Scarcely had their commissioners left than Major I Anderson waged war. No other words will de, scribe his action. It was not a peaceful change from one fort to another; it was a hostile act in the highest sense, ! : nd only justified in the presence or a superior enemy and in Imminent peril. He abandoned bis position, spiked his guns, burned bis gun-carriages, made preparations for the dest'uction of his post, and withdrew under cover of the night lo a sarer position. This wu war. No man could have believed (without your sssurance) that any officer could have taken such a step, "not only without orders, but against orders What the SUt?-did waa in simple self defease; for this act, with all its attending circumstances, was aa much war as tiring a volley; and war being thus begun, until those commencing It explained their action and disavowed their Intention, there was no room for delay, and even at thia momeut, while we are writing, it is more than probable, from the tenor of your letter, that reinforcements are burying Into the conflict, so that when the first gun shall be flred, there will have been on yonr part one continuous consistent series of actions, commencing In a demonstration rmentiallv t>..
