a THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: THURSDAY Afrtl 4. 1?1. Spirit ( (ho tlarnlBf Press The Intel'.igtnetr tbti morning ia devoted to ?ow? The Rtpuiiluit* thinks that if an attack is made upon Fort Pickens and vigorously repulsed, the Union mfn of Virginia will carry the State by a large minority. Vimi.iia ?The Richmond Dispatch,conducted by a gentlemen who, making pretentions to a turn for political economy, ia bitten with the idea that there la hut a tingle Industrial interest worth a button?that of the profits and blessings of (lave labor?i? Industriously endeavoring to Inoculate the laboring freemen In the region round Richmond with the tame nonsensical theory If Ingennnus In hla current efforts, he Is proving beyond ques'.lon that his reading con cerning his favorite science?for It Is now a science?has been almost altogether confined to such works and authors as the eccentric Mr. Flubugh, of Port Royal; Dr. Vsn Eyrie, of the New York Day Book; Mr. Cobb, of the Georgia Convention; His Serene Highness, Sprstt, of the Mouth Carolina Convention; Viscount Yancey, of tho Alabama Convent on; Mr. Pn^io, late of the V. S. Congress from the same State; De Bow's *t al , of the Inevitable negro and nothing bit negro, school *If disingenuous, he Is simply ' saying to play upon what he believes to be the utter Ignorance of the white men tolling around him for brea?!, of the truth* of the world'a Indus trial experience, that are familiar to all who are posted In the history of the progress of society on both slde3 of the Atlantic. Ill* theory It, that onlet? Virginia tecedes, ?be will lose her slave labor; and that the loaa of brr slave labor will at once reduce her to the lndna trlal condition of St. Domingo. We need hardly remsrkthat St Domingo la lnduatrlally defunct, because it It inhabited and governed wholly by the negro race. It ha* not loat Its negro labor; but its negro labor cauaot be induced to work. Now, the Dirpmtch doea not pretend that If Vir ginia falls to secede, b -r uegro labor will strike a hoe less in coust-quenee thereof, but that it will therefore labor fartb?r South. So, Virginia is not to become a desert like St Domingo, industri ally tpeikiug, because the it to be the land of a laiy, thriftiest and shiftless population; but b? oause of her ioss of what the Dispatch's writer regards her only sourcc of profit and progress?her negro labor. in the face of the world's experience it ignores the fact that frctn the saoie nniountof land in such a climate at that of Virginia, the Intelligent white lahorrr. with an Am^rlrin rfti7?n*a future K..r,ir*? him, hla educational and intellectual superiority, Ac , Ac., will gather double the net result* that can be produced by the labor of the ordinary American negro slave. He also blindly ignores, In bis train oi reasoning, the well-known fact that tha concentration of large bodies of negro slaves la any county of any State of this I'ulon ha* inva riably crowded out almost all small landholders, and given It up almost entirely to the occupation of a comjwrativeiy f-w men of iar^e wealth, with a few whites with little or no property, depend ?nt on thern for all they require but the air they breathe and the water they drink. In such localities nine-tenths of the mechanics' work Is done, as the Di'patch well knows, by Mr. Spratt'a more-desirable-for-the-South's class of mechanics?slave mechanics. There, exists to perfactlou, Its southern Utopia?a stats of so ciety in which the white laborer Is the unclean thins; to be ritfidlv banished from It h? ih? centratlon against him < f every influence likely to make hisrondl'lon degraded, and bla struggle for bread an unsuccessful one. We refer to thia branch of the Ditpattk't reasoning, imply to bow to the Virginia freemzn possessing but the advantages which God, a common school educa tion and the acqulaltlon of a trade?that of the husbandman or of a merh^nlc?have given him, what those who would seduce him to favor dis union, aim to establish aa the state of society under the despotism of the Oligarchy; and to ask him seriously wLethtr kt desires to build up through the South any auch condition of thing*? If he does, he should by all cieana lose no time In shouting for disunion. By way of clinching the nail driven home aa it were, as explained, above, the DUpatck publishes _a comparative table of the relative amount of State Uxes paid by sundry large slaveholding counties of Virginia longest settled, and that paid by as many recently settled counties in western Virginia, containing whites in numbers about equal to those in the eastern counties above re # ferred to 'I be former are the homes of wealth; the latter, of comparative poverty. If the Ditpatek Will study the statistics of those particlur counties but a little deeper, It will find that In proportion to white population there are ten land-holder* in the poverty ttricken western counties, to one in the rich eastern ones; that there are five"schools In the former to one in the latter; thit there are tire tax payers In the former?as small as the taxes paid by each may be?to one lu the latter; that there are five of the clasa who In case of war mint be looked to to bear arms In their country's defense, to one in the latter; that the relative increase of the wealth of the former in the last twenty years has been five times that of the latter; that the relative Increase of the population of the former la the last twenty years has been ten times that of tb? latter; that the diffusion of property smon^ the whites In the former is ten times greater than Its diffusion !n the latter, Ac.

Thi Vmt Last Mask's N??t!?The cltjr'i VaUI k.ll. tl ^ l4 ,1^ umum were in a oiaxe ox ficivemroi iui evening over a dozen different stories concerning the purpose for which the steam frigates Min nesota and Powhatan are now being fitted out for ea service. The sensation newspaper men were In ecatacies over the item, while the few dis union 1 its still hanging arounds the Federal me tropolis were quite as elated by the prospect of the Inauguration of civil war, which they thought they discovsred in the fact that thoee ships are at once to be placed In coramlaslon. A doxen dis patches were sent South, some of them saying that they were poaitlvely destined to support the rein forcement of Fort Plcteni; while others declared no less confidently that they were to form the principal features of aaquadraa to blockade the iudhid oi me iuiHimppi: ?"*eariy in 01 in?m added that a part of the Government'* programme In the premise* wu the Immediate recall of Com modore Pendergraat, because be li a aouthern man, from the command of the Gulf Squadron, recently aaauraed by btm, and the aubatltutlon of Commodore Strlngbain in bla stead.

Thus, we have to aay that It la well known to those here who aee behind the curtain, that thli supplemental United States Gulf squadron (which ti to be commanded by Commodore Strlngham.) haa been determined to be put in commission to meet tbe great Increase of naval force In tbe Gulf wblch Enclandand Franceareabouttoaend there, and to protect t&e interests ot tne United state* ro far as they may be complicated by Spain'* now admitted d<i!gr.s upon St Domingo, which are probably at tbe bottom of the movemen *a ?f Eng. land and France In that quarter, referred to above; and, further, that Commodore I'endergrast Is not to be recalled, nor are the dutlea of hi* command In the Gulf to be in any manner interfered with by that of Commodore Strlngham. ** /' ' ?'

Patterson, of Baltimore, a beirer of dispatches front tLe United States commercial agent In St. Domingo, reached Washington,and wss closeted with the Secretary of State for hours once or twice during that day. '1 be Information brought by that gentleman concerning American Interests In St. Domingo haa doubtless generated the haste to get Commodore Strlngham's squadron ready for aea. We may add, that the withdrawal of troops from thla point, which has commenced?ther? being no longer a necessity for keeping any con aiderable number here?Is being twisted by the Disunion letter-writers and telegraphers Into de signs on the part of the Government to Invade the South, of course. These gentlemen are hard to phase, indeed Up to a week ago they were groining plteonsly over the presence of these troops here?denouncing it r.s an act of military despotism, of menace to Virgin^ Ac.; and now that they are being aent elsewhere, they arc swearing roundly that they are to be atationed there, only to tie In a better position to assail the South than if kept at the Federal metropolis Thia Is a funny world we live in; and about the most Incomprehensibly-funny fellows in It, are those whose vocation It Is to get Up, In Washing ton, cock-and-bull stories for the benefit of the Disunion cause Important AproiXTMiXTs.?To-day the Pres ident settled the California otfl^e-seeking im broglio by appointing at San Francisco Samuel Parker postmr.ater; J .

Edit or Star: In a late issue of the New York Times a foul and unjust misrepresentation has been made In regard to mventiduct in connection with the transfer of tbe public property to the State of Texas at this station. I am but a subordinate officer, and had nothing whatever to do in or with the transaction. If any one Is to tv* censured, let It fall upon tbe bead of thos- linplleattd The matter whs controlled by the officer commanding th'department,ard witn him must rest the responsibility. 1 claim that I was from the first opposed to the unwarrantable seizure of the property, and shared with the rest of mv brother ('Ulcers the mortification attending the transaction. | I ain reported l?y the Tlmea as having resinned my commission In tbe Army and taken service In I Texas Every particle of the report is an outra geous libel upon me. Iam now, and ever have been, attending to my legitimate dutlts, and will | continue to do so until otherwise ordered. The I report urew out of the fact that I was offered tbe appointment of Qnartcrinasttr General of this | State.

They have rakrd up old charge^rom the musty record*, and dragged me before the public on false Information, charges which you know have long sinre been honorably adjusted, and which the entire press of the country, from .Maine to Mex ico. fully endorsed Even the Times did roe justice, which it seldom ever has been known to do, especially where Virginian? are concerned I am not the only one who has suffered by the unjust reports of infamous letter-writers and scribblers I observe In an Issue of the National Intelligencer at Washington, of March '2d last, an article which reflects very unjustly and ungener ously up: n the conduct of Major i>. H Vinton and'Capt R. H R. Wh'.tely, of the Army, as connected with the late transfer of the public property at this station to the State of Texas, tinner the orders of Gen Twlgcs, commanding thU W lsr.11 *bv ^Ivi ivu? wlH V Intelligencer condescends to notice such villainous reports, we must admit we have lost our friends. The writer must been misinformed, or evi dently misapprehended the true position of these officers He will doubtlers admit it, on a fair presentation of the case. Neither Major Vinton r Capt Whltcly, or I believe any other officer, was a party to the understanding which led to the transfer, fhey were merely constituted a boird, bv order of the General, to carry out bis orders previously determined upon by that offl er. After the transfer had been determined upon, it became necessary to execn?e it in an orderly man ner, so as to protect the officers charged with the property, and prevent any imposition upon the Government, and to secure a safe and speedy removal of the troops from the country These office's were designated for tbe reason they were the highest in rank at this station, and co'.stltuted a board for these several objects alane. 1 have reason to know that the gentlemen re ferred to were from tb?llrst opposed, and violently opposed to tbe entire transaction They are both true and faithful officers, and have tbe reputation of being two as honorable snd trustworthy gen tlemen as can be found In the Army.

The Charleston papers give detailed accounts of the excursion, which Is said to have astonished even those who had previously entertained the utmost confidence la the strength and the extent of tbesa defences.

The Colnmblad guns. with which this novel battery it eauippta, bear on the ?outh will of f*unr.ler, the line of flre being at an angle of about thtrty-llve degrees Thisis not. of course,consid ered favorable for breachlne, bat owing to the fact that the wall ia loop-boled for musketry throughout Ita entire length, which of cour*e weakens it a great deal, the < ff-ct cf shot upon It would, we think, even at the distance of 1.150 yards. effect a breach within a reasonable time On the return trip tbe two steamers containing the party directly under tbe grim walls of Fort Mimter. the rampnrSaof winch were crowded with officers and men. "Dixie's Land" was played by tbe bauds on the steamers, and several white flags were spread to the breeze, but whether the gallant Anderson or any of his small band re sponded tbe reporters "saith not " General Beauregard, in order to exhibit tbe skill of bis artillerists, indulged tbe visitors with a sight of artillery practice from two bitterles, a buoy in tbe ship channel, distant 1,600 yards, being ustd as a target. The Courier says of tbe result: Three rounds were given ; at each round the vis itors express<d tbeir admiration cf tbe excellent line shots that were mad* by tbe gunners Tbe shell from the mortars were thrown beautifully.

A Qcarrkl of Our Own?The military au thorlti?-sabout Charleston harbor have persistmtly refused facilities to the press of the city, alwava urging the importance of silence In reference to thf siateof the military preparations and defenses Although these are matters of great desire to our readers, ai<d comple'ely within our reach, yet we hive readily acquitsced in the policy, >acrillciiig Interest from a regard to the public weal lint we lud a right to expect, and did expect, that rare would be takrn to exclude the reporters of other papers, and particularly of northern papers. The iloa'ing b:<tt? rv was a great secret, and yet Its ac curate description was heralded over the country by a hundred different correspondents We had occasion to notice, a short time ago, the excellent engravings of sundry Morris Island batteries, taken bv their artist, and fowarded with descriptions to Krank Leslie's Paper, In which they appeared. To day we publish a full descrip tion of all the various batteries, with names, number of guns. Ac , Ac , written, as we under stand, by Dr Salter, the self-proclaimed corres pondent of that virulent Abolition sheet, the New York Times. Another description of the same is published In the New York Herald. So that our people apparently have to go to New York papers to It-arn facts about our own affairs. It this just: Is it right? Have not the press of Charleston good reasons to complain? We know our readers will think, as we do, it isa crying shameand Injustice.

We make the loilowlng ex tract* : The most stirring Incident of the past few daya was the capture on the night of tbe 26th Instant, of the schooner Carry by Captain Stredman. of the Wllcoi True Blues. The schooner taking advantage of the shadows of night was trying, against orders, to convey coal and supplies clan destinely to the *hlp W vandotte. for the nse of the United States fleet. The officer In command getting wind of her mission, ordered Captain Steedman to proowd with a detail of men from hla company, and if possible intercept her. Tbe gallai.t young Captain, procuring an open boat, m>de cbaae and after some difficulty In finding her. succeeded in capturing her almost under the verv liowi of the Wyandotte, and proudly bore ber b?ck as the prtzs of the new Confed eracy. Another noted "Institution" connected with tbe military arrangements below, is a very diminu tive stearr cr uki! for patrollug the bay, to prevent supplies reaching the enemy. Some of tbe boys have dubbed ber the Wild Cat,and manned with a detachment of volunteers. It la Interesting to wat< h her, as bird-like she scuds o'er tbe dark blue waters, now stopping and dallying about the Wy-andotte, as if coaxing her for a fight; now ec centric breakin? away and running cloae to tha wails of Fort l'lckens, seeming to say, "Take a pop, If you want to;" and then, apparently em tmldenfa with her success, dzshlng out beyond l'lckens. and with a sort of dare-dt-vll effrontery making the circuit of tbe fleet, and may-be over hauling some suspected craft under guua, a single broadside of which would blow her to atoma.
