T^HE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: SATURDAY April 13, 1961. Spirit ( the >lerulog Prm The luttlhgtnrtr ray* of the attack on Fort Sumter " The conalderationa which indiced the latter to take the Initiative In precipitating this deplorable event are Katrd in onr telegraphic report, and do not all for appreciation at our banda while aa ret we are Uftin doubt reepectlng the nnynniia aia'gnfd to tbe linv?>mir.a*nt hv the military authorities at Charleston. At present we can only fl?e expression to the prrlonnd sorrow with which we contemplate the melancholy pectarle of a fratricidal conflict, which however begun, or however ended, can bring only shame | to every lover of hi* laud, and only *rief to every friend of humanity." The Intelligencer learns by private despatches from Charleston that Maj. Anderson refrained from replying to the attack of the Confederate forces (which commenced at 1 o'clock yesterday morning) for the 'pace of three hours, when the batteries of Fort Sumter were opened upon its besiegers Blackboard?General Beauregard i? regarded by the Army generally a* being one of the very Meet engineers la this country. In view of this ffcet, we Judge that the general tenor of our dls|* tches of to-day?which tell that be Is likely to reduce Sumter before the relieving veasels (eoiborraiMd by the recent storm) can operate to relieve It, may b* correct. Thk Collision at 8cmtkr ?As was anticipated. Beauregard on Informing the Oligarchic authorities at Montgomery that the Government had declined to permit Anderson's command to starve In Sumter, after their violation of their pledge to permit him to procure provisions In Charleston, was ordered to bon.bard Sumter forthwith?ere the appearance of the unarmed steamer hearing provisions in the harbor, and that rf the fleet to put them Into the fort by the military power of the Government if they were not allowed to land them peaceably. See our columns elsewhere for what has aubseqnently occurred there. AU Union men everywhere will agree with the Imtelligemter, which this moraine points out the fact that the Oligarchy have commenced hosUlltiea under clrromxtances In which they will fee likely to And no justification In the judgment of those who are mo; anxious to "lire the southern hf*_tM order to precipitate the border States into aiu?at|OB wjth their usurpation?the purpose for wh'.ch -v (o clearly been Inaugurated If there Lid P*~vjoualy existed In the minds of any, a shadow of d10f the fact that It wa? long sine* determined at ^i-nt^omery to inaugurate the war thus at the very ^rst moment after Beauregard could poasiblv miK I _ # (IIIIMCK t?i UII|; enough to venture the attack, surely ?he circumstances transpiring at Charleston from ?be 6th Inst , when the notification of the stoppage 01 >us supplies was given, to the firing of the first gun, I yesterday, must dispel it. % But we have no room to-day for comments on tbwe so pregnant occurrences. Boors News.?Dispatches were received here to-day stating that McCullough has some thou ~uiu ujcii aaseoio.ea ai tome point In Virginia, for aa assault on this city on the instant after Beauregard shall hive reduced Sumter. There is no troth whatever in it At 10 a. m , to-day, It was currently stated that a dispatch had been received this morning from Charleston, saying that Beauregard had sent to j Anderson a flag of truce, asking for a cessation of hoatllltie* until he couid attend to hit wounded, of whom he had some three hundred on his hands, and that his request had .been acceded to. While we have no positive means of knowing what truth there may be in it, the fact that at ..?-o mniicu a unpaica saying aai tap Bring bad been resumed tfcla morning, and making no mention whatever of any such occurrence, incline* us to place little catttdence in tbe rurnor referred to. Nor have we anv faith whatever in the statement by telegraph in the Star this afternoon, alleging that a breach waa made In Sumter'a wails yesterday; because tbe point thus said to be breached, could not possibly have been breached by any soch guns as the Oligarchists have in tatter? against It. 'me oiigsrrbists. It will be remembered, have entire control of all tbe new* stnt from Charleston by telegraph. and, tbe public may rely on it. will permit nothing to paws over the wires just now that might operaU direr tly or indirectly to damage their cause la public opinion. Nor Is it all likely that they will permit tbe Government here to receive any Charleston dispatches not manufactured to embarrass their counsels concerning affain If that K* rwiMlKU U p to 11 a. n. to-day no branch of the Govern- I meat her* had received a line by telegraph from Charleston since the attack began, except thos* for warded through the Associated Press xgency, to be found in this afternoon a Star.

The rn dit here is that they are much pleased with the President's reception of tbem ; though as yet it Is hardly pes slble that much of a definite character could have transpired In the matter between then.selves and the Government.

Tbe result was simply a statement by the President that be will act according to tbe Inaugural programme?hold tbe public property and defend it; waging no war against tbe seceding States, and maintaining the defensive. Tbe President's reply was given in writing, as follows Hon MtStrt. Prtslom. Stuart nnrf Rnmrtnli.k ? Gentlemen?As a committee of the Virginia Convention, now in sewlon, you present me a pre amble and resolution in these words: "Whereas, intheopinion of this Conventionale uncertainty which prevails In the public mind as to the policy which the Frderal Executive Intends to pursue toward the seceded Mates is extremely injurious to the Industrial nn<t commercial interests of the comutry, tends to keep up an excitement wLifch is uufdvorabie to tb?? afliust;:i*nt of pending dittU ulties, and threatens a disturbance of the public p*-*re : Therefore ....-ni M, i u? i cvniniiiee o( mrec di legate* lie apt>oln?ed to wait on the President ot tbe fulled r*t-tes, present to him this preamble ai.d resolution. and respectfully auk him to communicate to this Convention the policy which tli?' Ft der.il Kxecutiv* intends to pura;ie in regard to lt:c Confederate Spates 1u answer I have to say that having at tbe )>eginning of my official term expressed my intended policy as plainly as I was able, it is with deep regret and some mortification 1 now learn that there is threat and injurious uncertainty In the public I'nind as to what that policy la. aud what course ' ??tend to pursue No* having as yet seen occealon to change. It is ? f r ufUK pursue xne course marked out In the Inauuiral Address 1 commend a careful consideration 01 the whole document, as the best expression 1 can gi?e 0f my purposes. As I then and therein said, i now repeat: ' The power confided to me will be used to hold, occupy and ; ossess the projurty and places belonging to the Government, and\o collect the duties Miid Imposts; but beyond wha\ Is necessary for the*; objects there will l>e no invasion, no using of force against or among the people anywhere.-' By the words ''property and places beloneing to thft finV?nmo?t ' ' - L' 41 ..Uvu>, i uuiray aiiuae to the mHilary posts and property which were In the posses#1011 of the Government when it came to my hands. But If, a? now appeais to be true, In pursuit of a purpose to drive the I'nlted States authority from these places, an unprovoked assault has been mad* upon Fort Suinter. 1 shall hold myoelf at liberty to re possess, if 1 cau, like places which had been s<*:zed before the Government was devolved upon me. And, in any event, 1 shall, to the best of my ability, repel force by force In case it proves tr ie that Fort Sumter has been assaulted, as Is reported, 1 shall, perhaps, cause j the l.nited States malls to be withdrawn from all the States wbii.h claim to have seceded, believ- J liiiT that th< c ommencement of actual war against the Government justifies and p?6Slblv demands It I scarcely need to uv th*t * - J - ??. vviiviun IUC 1111 inn* 1 j ry posts and property situated witbiu th# States I which claim to nave acceded, ai vet belong!";* to the Government of the t ailed State*, as much at j they did before the supposed secession . Whatever e''?e 1 may do for the purpose, 1 shall I not attempt to collect the duties and impost# by | any arme<i invasion of any part of the country? not meaning by tbis, however, that 1 may not land a force deemed neressar> to relieve a fort upon the border of tue country. From the fact that I have quoted a part of the luautfural Address, it must not be Inferred tbat 1 repudiate any other part, the whole of which 1 reaffirm, except so far as what I now say of the mails may he regarded as a modification. |!T From Franck Taylor we have the North American Review for April publitbed by Crosby, Nichols k.
