W ' i?p??mmm???i?? THE EVENING STAR. w a tin i v htaii riTV. '? iiciu^vri vii v? -m. TUESDAY March IS, 1961. Spirit mt the MtralRf Press Tbe Imttlligrmt'T ibowt from Southern Journals the dlssatisf-ictton manifested by the Southern people with their new government. The KtpubUcan ?ay? of the dliunlon effort of Roger A. fryor and hla associates We have no belief that thta thing will have an end, until these democratic demagogue*, who have been blustering and threatening for twenty years, are put down by cold steel and cold lead. The mischief has come to such a head, that it must end in a collision of arms In tbe bosom of the South Itself. The people of that region have too much energy ana too much courage, to be made slaves of by Roger A. Pryor and Roger A. Prvor's associates The war Is inevitable, and will come before the year It out " How to do It.?The Louisiana Convention bar* voted flown the proposition to refer the made-in-aecret constitution to the people by a majority of three to one! The disunion majority of that convention waa elected, it will be remembered, by a minority of the vote caat?amounting to perhaps less than onethird of the whole vote of the State caat in the Presidential election in November. When elected, the Idea that It waa designed to clothe that Convention with authority to elect Louisiana's members to an improvised confederate congress, which should make in aecret a constitution, that should In turn be forced upon the people of the State as the law for their permanent government, without permitting tbein to vote upon the question of its acceptance, of courae waa net broached Nevertheless, all that has already come to pass. The newspspers in the Interest of the oligarchy uuioijr proclaim (are me .>ew urmni unta, me Mobile Trtbunt, and tbe Montgomery Adv?rti**r,) that under existing circumstances tbe man who questions tbe propriety of what bas been done in tbe formation of tbe "permanent Constitution," must, necessarily, and will surely be treated as a traitor; as tbe necessities of tbe situation of tbe new Government (oligarchy) do not admit of tbe toleration of two opinions in tbe >( Confederate States'' as to Its right to do as it bas done without consulting tbe people, or as to tbe propriety ef anything It bas done. From tbe dawn of civilization to tbis bour there never arose a despotism justly odious to tbe lovers of civil liberty that failed, ere getting firmly seated in pv>*ci, ?u ju?ujj iw usurpation 01 ;nc people liberties upon precisely the same pleas which the newspapers of the oligarchy are now putting forth in behalf of the State necessity for the entire suppression of the liberty of the press, of free speech, of the popular right to sit In judgment at the polls, and of the right of individual property at the South; all of which hare already been expunged from the list cf what so recently were the rights of American citizenship there, as elsewhere. It is to accomplish these same " glorious results" of disunion, in Virginia, that the presses and leaders of her disunion minority are now insolently abusing, blackguarding, maligning, and otherwise insulting every true advocate of the preservation of the liberties won for us by our revolutionary fathers, In the State. It is to accomplish just such results in Virginia that her disunion members of Congress are threatening to take up arms to compel the majority of Virginia to submit to the yoke of the ollgarchists, If the former longer decline to accept the disunion policy of the minority of the State. We fancy we see them " trvini? on" that It la fortunate, indeed, that the dlsunionlsta in the Gulf States, at well as their Virginia leaden, Lave to toon been compelled to develope tiieir purposes and policy?the former at one blow striking down all popular liberty and every Industrial interest where they have power; and the latter, realising that the people of Virginia will never voluntarily surrender their liberty of free speech, snd of the press, their freedom from enormous taxation, the right to vote upon the acts of M?eii ruler*, Ac , *? . Ac . kc.. as they are being urged to surrender them, now proposing to rob them of these and all the rest of the manifold blessings of the government of our fathers, at the point of the bayonet, as a last resort. Moke Old Rats ix the Niw Cheese.?From time to time we receive accounts of appointments made by the oligarchy. In almost every instance they are of men well known in connection with American public affairs?chronic disunlonistsand political agitators. They are in fact the men who la the late political revolution were virtually turned neck and heels out of United States public employment; or given practical notice to quit not long bence, in the self-evident conclusion from the tendency of election results, that their turn to be laid aside by the people was close at hand it Is difficult for one knowing the history of the connection of those men with American public affairs, the character of their labors as public men, and the history of the means by which they managed to disrupt the Vnlon, on seeing them again I in possession of reins of power not to realize that they made the secession movement solely to confirm themselves in pablic positions. Their government was made whollv by parties not authorised by the people of any one State to make any government whatever. Their permanent constitution, made by themselves, confirms the whole government entirely in their own hands; taking from the people the right of sitting in judgment upon any act of theirs of great or small importance. Indeed, it is the cutest Yankee Invention conceivable?a sort of self-operating, aclf-controiiing, self-p otecting, and self-maintaialng con-traptlon, designed for ever to prevent within the seceded States any such disagreeable bwuuugcncy oj puouc asaira aa a real popul >r election, by which .the government may poaaibly get oat of their own individual illuatrioua handa into thoM of any other men or party. That, and that only, ia the philosophy of their recently m&de-inaecret " permanent conaUtutloo;" aa all will realize not long hence. It la neither more nor leaa than aalneurance that no auch calamity aa the recent Preaidentlal election ahall ever route the old rata out of tbe new cheese, aa that routed them oat of the old one. The African Slave Trade.?The buttermilk ia fast coming out of the Montgomery atirabout. Late cewa from that quarter explains the reason of Jefferson Divis's veto of their bill to prevent the African si-ve trade. Their " Permanent Constitution" c< ntalns a poaitive prohibition of it, inserted for effect la tbe border States. But it set mi that the law to carry out that provlaion, according to Davia'a veto, waa designed palpably and positively to prevent It from being operative In good lino i bus, 11 provided that In cms of captures | of alsrers and the landing of their cargoes in the Mcedcd States, the negroes should be (old ! Had the law passed, all that the most enterprising advocate of the African slave trade need have done, would hare been to run In hiacargo, surrender It, pay his fine of a thousand dollars or so, and with his armed mob prevent any one from bidding against hiin at the eubaequent sale' The | trick was a cute one, indetd. Davis, however, ntoid It, because, as he alleged in his meeaage, the border States could Dot fall to aee through it; ad lta enactment might thus hurt the cause of mm viigarcuv, udi yn oj any mean* permanently lied In the uoendency In any of the needed States, even. Clamor of the advocates of the African slave trade compelled the publication of Devil'* aecret message vetoing the bill?to punlah thoee engaged In the trade. The bill waa improvised for their benefit only, of course. Ma Pickwick at Mosraonaat ?The Loulsl. ana Convention have donated to the Montgomery Congress the tS3*,000 not long since stolen from the United States by sundry then Louisiana federal ofleers, and turned It over to tbe former body. The debate eccarrlng In the Montgomery Congress on the presentation of tbe Louisiana ordlsauce giving up the money to thecentral oligarch* la one of tto? rlchort apeclmena of Plckwieklaolsm we ever read?eapecUlly the portloa of It apoken by Mr. Wlthm, of Bouth Corollas, la compliment of Loulalaua'a dlalatareat?dne? la ao generoualy declining to appropriate to her own oaco the atolea treasure Such eolf-ascriftce aud patriotic geaeroalty, according to Mr Wttben, waa hardly over before beard of, though the money ?mj a tote a. They're a remarkable lMtttattoa?Ike oligarchy, tip**11 ; * CONGRESSIONAL. Skats ?When our report cloeed yesterday, Mr. Breckinridge was addreatng the Senate upon tbe reeolutlon introduced by Mr Douglas He declared tbat tbe border State* would not remain In tbe Union and submit to lcaa than a full recognition and protection of slavery by the Federal Government. Kentucky only lingered In the Union becauae abe waa attached to tbe Constitution If th? I'nlnn waa to he tared at all. It must be by the majority of the people at the North. It could aot be uvea by general terms of union and peace. The flrat act to be done wu the removal by the President of the Federal troopa la the seceded States. Mr. Hale replied in a speech of considerable length, In which he reviewed the riae of the slavery agitation and the progress of the spirit of disunion The great cry now ratsed was made by men who bad enjoyed the i?? for many yeais, and now bad to take the e*is. If every time a minority waa defeated it was to dictate to the majority aueh terms as they bad heard in the Senate, and to aay they would go out of the Union If these demands were not granted, this Government was a miserable aham. Mr. Hale concluded with an apostrophe to New Hsmpshire; and after aome further debate of minor Importance, the Senate went Into executive session. and after some time speut therein adjourned Tcbsdat, March 19. Sen atx ?Mr. Hale offered a resolution appointing William Hlckey to tbe position of Secretary of the Senate. Also, a resolution, repealing the resolution adopted on tbe 8th of December last, whereby said VVm Hlckey wns appointed Chief Clerk; both of which were laid ovrr till to-mormw Mr. Cllngman proceeded to address the Senate upon the Douglas resolution. He argued that the policy of the Administration waa warlike, and held that It was foolish to talk of p?ace when troops were beta); concentrated upon the borders and the Navy all called Into service. He had been assured that troops are now being thrown Into the forts !n North Carolina and Virginia, and he believed If such was the case, that the President meant to mak* war upon the South. He charged the republican Senators with being aware of the intention of the President, and that they knew more about the movements of the Army and Navy than they professed. Mr. Grimes snd Mr. Clark arserted that they knew nothing about the movements of troops except what had been made public on the floor of the Senate. Mr. Cllngman thought it strange that Senators so Intimate with the administration knew nothing of its designs He thought everything was tending towards collision and war, and concluded with an allusion to the tariff* bill. Mr. Hale maid h#? hail no Pnnnaotlnn verbally or la writing with the Administration upon any subject. He was a representative of New Hampshire and not of the Administration. He was as Ignorant of the intentions of the Administration as the Senatci from North Carolina, and bad not even seen him since his Inauguration. Mr. Chandler proceeded to address the Senate when our report closed. ? m m ? Civil Wti to bx Eksatkd is Virginia.? We published yesterday an extract from the Washington correspondence of the Charleston Mercury, proclaiming that the dlsunlonlsts, if the majority of the people of Virginia continue to refuse to secede, propose to carry the State out of the Union by force of arms ; to make the majority of the State submit to the will of the minority by the application of fire and sword. A Virginia member of Congress made a speech to a disunion meeting in Richmond a few nights since. In which he. tno ntKnaiaaHnallM I f ? ? J -?vM?Mualw?lV<UlJ[ IUIC* sh?dowed that to b? the ultimate policy of lila party in the Old Dominion. We quote hla remark* on the aubject from the Richmond Esamintr's report of hia apeech, as follow*: Alluding to Weatern Virginia, he said he had implicit faith that she would atand by the rights of the State; but If It waa the demonstrated and Inevitable purpose of Western Virginia to force Eastern Virginia under Black Republican rule, then he for one would raise the atandard of revolution [Enthusiastic cheers ] Mr. Pryor then appealed to Virginians not to abandon their native land, but to h^bt it out to the last [Immense applause.] Let them show that Virginia of 1S61 was the Virginia of 1776. [Great cheers ]" If >uch language mean* anything, it simply meana that if the majority of the people of the State vote to continue true to their allegiance to the United States, the dlsunionlsts propose to force their will upon the State by a reaort to arms against the majority. The people of Virginia will duly comprehend from tbla brief extract what diaunlon would, if It could, aoon be at, in their mtdat, and will realize from It how cloaely the aplrlt of diaunlon at home la allied to Its aplrlt aa manifested where it baa already been able to uaurp tbe government of the people. Novinitid ?After the Star went to preaa yesterday, the Senate went into Executive session, and it waa found that the sealed Executive mesaagea received In the courae of the morning embraced the following important nominations Viz: Charles Francis Adama, of Mass , aa Minister to England; Geo P. Marsh, of Vt . Minister to Sardinia; James W. Webb, of N. Y., Minister to Turkey ; and Win. L. Dayton, of N. J., Minister 10 trance. Tbe last-named nomination was confirmed, the rule requiring it to be referred having been suspended, as Mr. Dayton was formerly a member of the Senate, and his character therefore sufficiently known without a formal investigation This is the usual courtesy in such cases Ere they adjourned for the day, the Senate also conflrmrd Benjamin M. Trumbull as Receiver of Public Money at Omaha, N. T., and ex-Congressman Wm. A Howard Postmaster at Detroit, Mich W. S.Thayer, of New York,was also nominated for Consul General at Egypt, and Patrick J. Denote as Consul to Cork. The selection of Gen. Webb for Constantinople, and Mr. Thayer for Egypt, embraces compliments to the profession for which the press should make due acknowledgments. Gen. Webb is fannorn tn all ?til * >- ' -? ? 1 , ? .? -w ?uw witt uuuuuCM Ull DIB point on at well a* any man can fill It. We are glad Indeed that fata ambition to serve hit country abroad hai at length been thus gratified. Mr. Thayer, though lea* known, la a gentleman , of high personal character, exceedingly well read, and fine abilltiea. For year* past he ha* resided among ua during the sessions of Congress, and haa fairly earned the confidence and esteem of every gentleman In Washington connected with the presa?hla own profeaalon?whoae good opinion ia worth having. He possesses discretion, energy and knowledge of the world, which will make him valuable indeed to American Interests abroad. Pera?Ml. Hon. D W11 mot, Ps., Hon. J. AI. Kunkel Md ., A. II Waahington.

Samuel Archlbold, Lngineer-ln-Chief of the Navy, has resigned. The usual embarrassments on a change of Administration are apprehended In several of the I moat important bureaua cf tbe Gcvernment aervice, resulting from removals and resignations. In the pre-emption division of the General Land Office, nearly the entire force has been changed, and the difficult duties of the office are with difficulty performed by thofe who have not been regularly trained and tutored in them. The pre-emption lawa are numerous ai<d intricate, and involve Immense Interests, requiring close investigation ai:d a familiarity with the subject The struggle for the Baltimoreappointments is quite energetic. There 1a a rumor here to-day that Robert Turner, Eaq , Is to receive the appointment of Collector, be being tbe choice of Henry Winter Davis, whom he defended in the Legislature of Maryland against the resolutions of censure adop'ed by that b<dv 1 cannot, how<-v er, ascertain that the rumor la well founded, though it haa created co nsiderable cons'ernatlon among the straigbtout Baltimore Republicans, who have ! partitioned out all the offices among themaelves. Tbey say that Col. Irvin McDowell, Assistant Adjutant General of the Army, held a long i onference this morning with the Secretary of the Navy In relation, It Is said, to furnishing transportation for the troops about being withdrawn from Fort Sumter. It Is said that the new Secretary of the Navy has set his veto upon official proscription, and will make but frw removals in his Department of the Government, except for cause. He has filled several vacancies which existed. Arms ro* Georgia ?The "Tredegar" Works of Richmond are driving a busy Had thriving traffic with the seceded Stales,which derive their supplies of heavy cannon, ordnance, ice., almost exclusively from that source. In addition to the scores of "Columbiads" which have been sent from that celebrated foundry to South Carolina and Alabama, we notice the passive through Atlanta on Thursday night last of six six-inch Columbalds eu route to Savannah. The Atlanta Confederacy says they complete th? first instalment of seventy five similar suns of different calibre, ordered by the States of Georgia and Ala| bama. Political Indication* is Virginia ?We noticed a few days ago, savs the Norfolk Herald of Saturday, that a Palmetto flag bad been hoisted at Ferry Point,and that the citizens of that goodly little place were quite jubilant over it; ?o much so as to lead one to think that the Point, like Hardy county, had determined to secede and attach herself to some European power. But yesterday, like the "tide in the affairs of men." a reaction must have taken place, as we leirn that the Stars and Stripes waived majestically from a staff erected by some Union loving citizens of that quiet and amiable little spot. United Status Vkmels at the Navt Yard. The sioop-of-war Jamestown, which was taken off tbe dry dock last week, will be fitted for sea in a short time.

One thing la certain, however, they bare only led to Increased activity on tbe part of Oen. Beauregard and Gov Pickens, in adopting measures of vigilance. Tbe Coast Guard oas been doubled and the forces at the varloua fortifications along the coast almost trebled. We repeat again, that with tbe extenalve preparations already completed, any attempt to Mnforce Fort Sumter will prove a hopeless and disastrous undertaking.
