The H*publtcan My* : "No menaces froui any quarter wiU doWr the United States from sending fleets with supplies and reinforcements to sny of their forts, North or ?outh " Tilt VoLrMTK*** OF Tit* DlSTEICT OF COLUMBIA deserve unqualified praiae for tbe'.r noble action yesterday and to day in their country's behalf. When assembled yesterday morning on but ? hour's notice, uot a man of them knew that It was designed by the Government to ssk them to volunteer to enter its service. A large portion of them are men of property, and have families, while to a man they are all engaged In business In calling on them to volunteer, they were not Informed that it was to be for three months only, nor were they certain that it was the Government's des'.vn to keen them at home. On the contrary, there was a belief among not a few of tbem that they wer? being called on to serve wherever the country's exigencies mt^ht require their presence. Of course none of them bad made provisions for the protection of their busluess aud the comfort of their families. Yet on their country'! call few indeed were found to hesitats In the discharge of the patrlo'.'a duty; and some of those wbo did hesitate, hesitated only because suddenly to leave their ordinary avocations would be likely to ruin them, as business men We do not believe that on so sudden a call, and under such circumstances, so iar^e a proportion of citizen soldiery ever before volunteered for actual service. IVe therefore repeat our declaration above, tint they deserve nnquallfi-d praise. Thk Late Exoiigs of Fugitive m.avk<, to Canada, from various Northern States, Is a circumstance which tells more forcibly than words can express the fact that hereafter the South is to have no more reason to complain of the noaexecution of the fugitive slave law. These hundreds of runaways had been domiciled in different non-slaveholdlng States for years, none of them having recently tscaped from the routh Realizing that the change lit popular sentiment throughout the North has rendered it certain that whenever and wherever reclaimed within the limits cf the United Mates, they would be surrendered to their owners, tLey have thus taken time by the forslock and rushed into Canada. In the face of this pregnant fact, proclaiming beyond all question that the South will Ihm ?? ? ?- ? ?(? < slave-law grievance to complala of, th? disunion newspaperj are endeavoring to cr|&te the Irrprtf ion that the exodus was ot.e of slaves recently ?s?aped frcm tha South! Mtch Add ab >ci Notui.no.?The fact that the Government are rnusteriug aeven companies of District of Columbia m!llt a Into Its service, will, f course. be used far and wide to the ??nd of making capital for the Oligarchy it Is already bring exaggerated and otherwise misrepresented In a thousand d a- rent ways. Tbe truth la, tbe military exigencies ef the country having made it necessary to order meat of the U. S. troops recently stationed here, to other points, it has been determined to ask the militia of this District to do guard duty around tbelr own homes, instead of sending elsewhere tot men to supply tbe places of the regulars tbat have recently been transferred from this city. All will perceive at a glance not only the propriety of this action on th# nart i.fih. I ?v Government, but t!iat there is nothing whatever In It Justifying the tremendous eic.t>ment to which It hea aircady given riae. far and w'.de.

It* statement of facta, from the record, will carry conviction to the minds of all that the excitement was generated wholly without foundation, for the benefit of the disunion can*?, and waa attended by clrcamatancea abowing that the disunion leader* in the Virginia legislature care a* little for the true honor of the Stato, aa their colaborera in the bad cause fur'her South care for the libertle* of the f?eople whoae local governmenta they have usurped. The speech of Senator Segar In expoaure of the whole afl'alr, when resisting the passage of the reaolutlona referred to, was an able vindication indeed, of the entire Integrity and propriety of the War Department'* conduct with reference to the removal of the*e guns, as well aa an equally able expoaure of the reprehensible character of the effort to make capital for dlaunion out of the order to that effect, t ? tvr nave ior some day's past been endeavoring to find room for Mr. Segar's speech, bur, to far, In vain : Richmond, April 4, 1-61. Thk Bslloxx Gcxa?" Gbkat Cut ahd Litth Wool " The secessionists h^re and hereabouts have been for several day* past " In a great st?w"' about the guns at Bellnna Arsenal, manufactured by Dr. J. L Archer, tbe proprietor of the artenal, In pursuance of a contract made by Gov. Floyd with Dr. A. as far back as 1357. It w? ?i<< miWi'i" .... ?? |/ll Vdl/ty ? ?UO tbe removal of the guns to Fort Monroe would be resisted vi et O'mit; and tbe I,egislatu-e, thinned off bv the departure of many members for their homes, and the absence of other* in tbe ?-'onvent|i>n, caught the infection from the outside mob, and panaed reaolutlona?utterly deerading to Virginia? requiring the Governor to call out the public guard and militia to re*1st the movement of them, should it be attempted by the Government It turns out that there was not the remotest cause for the excitement, aa the facta of the case will plainly evince. It seems that Dr. Archer, having completed the guns, demanded payment of the Government. The Government being willing and ready t? fulfil its contract with Dr A., promptly, through the Ordnance Department, desired Dr. A to forward the guns to Hirkmonii,*l which point, according to the contract, they were to be delivered. Tbe letter written by Col. Craig, the head of the Ordnance De;?artmeiit, in reply to Dr Archer's demand, bears date the '."id, and Is In these words : 11 To Dt J. L Arrhrr?You will please forward to Richmond tbe cannon at your foundry, whtch has been Inspected for tbe United State*, with as little del?v us practicable, and as soon as theyare shipped from that place, tbe amount due on the laxt inspection will be paid.'' There was herein nothing to indicate anv inten** - nuu mj menace or twf the people of Virginia. Tbe Government owed Dr Archer money for the guns. Dr. A want-d and demanded bit money: and the Government, owing the money, and wishing to pay it, directed the movement of the gun* in ord**r that tbe party to whom tbe in^ney was due might get It But, to toon a* tbe Department was apprised of tbe excitement arising from the removal of the guns, Dr. Arcber was advised "not to move them for the pre?ent," as will Mppear from a letter addressed oy Capt. Kingsbury, of tbe Ordnance Department, to Hon. A. M. Harbour, of tbe Convention. und bearing date the v'*tb of March, and which Is a< follows: ' l)nr Sir: C<>1 Craig wishes me to say that Dr. Archer will be directed to-day not to remove tb? guns at present. The movement has commenced in order that the citizens of Virginia might receive their dues from the United States, and as the contract was completed. It seemed a fitting time to send forward the guns " The reason for sending forward the guns is thus apparent, and none but those bent on mischief can discover in tbe transaction any hostile or improper purpose. It was but an ordinary business matter More thiin this: so soon as it was ascertained tbat tbe movement caused dissatisfaction and panic?groundless as they were?the Ordnance Department forthwith is^Hed countermanding directions Gen. Scott bid stated, alfo, In a letter-to a member <il tbe Legislature, that tbe guns were not at all needed at Fort Monroe, thus showing that there could be no hostile motive In tbe Government in ordering tbe movement of tbe guns to that post, it was only a matter of deposite and >afe-Keeplng ; and vet a wild excitement sprang up in this Metropolis, In which some of the most respectable gentlemen la it actively, warmly, and publicly participated. And the Legislature, catching the delirium, actually passed resolutions directing the governor, by an armed force, to seize the property of tbe United States, and prevent its removal to a United States d'-pot, where itt deposit* and custody properly tx-lon^ed But it should be told, to tbe vindication of tbe proud old " mother of States and statesmen," that the resolutions no degrading to her honor and so inconsistent with ?? ? * ? ... HVI aciiumi, were [KilieQ through her House of Delegates by a bare quorum, tbe vote having Wen 45 for to & against, making 77?exactly a quorum, and no more. Had the vote been postponed until the following Monday, tbe resolutions would not have been parsed. But tbe secessionists kept up the vote the whole of Saturday night, and by sending the sergeant atarms for members, and having them waked from their slumbers, succeeded In getting a quorum, and with a bare quorum put through resolutions and measures which, but for the loss of all moral weight by tbe circumstances attending their passage, would have put upon tbe escutcheon of Virginia a foul and eternal stain. There being no Union _ , , ?

[Special dispatch to the Evening Post ] | Washinotox, April 10 ?It is now certain that the government has fully determined to reinforce Major Anderson's command at all hazards. 1 I learn on competent authority that the plan adopted & forth? relief of Fort Sumter is substantially as follows: ' In case of necessity supplies are to be thrown Into Fort Sumter bv means of a number of small boats, which, presenting smaller and more scat- 1 tered marks for the cannou of the rebels, will per- " hnps save an unnecessary bloodshed. q 1 he government has chartered a number of small schooners and othrr craft, which have been tilled with sand bags That these form part of T the Charleston expedition appears probable from the fact that the charter does not bind them to go farther South than Savannah.
