THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: TUI1DAT Aprtl 16. INI. Spirit ( the M*raf?? Pr? Tbe country owi a debt of gratitude to our eotemporary of tbe JtoisMgsaMr. for tbe promulgation of It* iM? appeal of tbla morning, to the sober sscond thought of tbe people, for the preservation of th? peace. How clearly It provea that there eilated no neccealty whatever for tb? current rendition of things, can only b? known by attentively reading ita article In question, wblcb alao makes it equally plain that if Virginia be precipitated into revolution, tbe civil war, that may yet be averted, cannot fall to become general, tbe Potomac being tbe dividing line between the con tending factlona. Tbe Republican aaya: " Upon their own resources alone, tbe conaplrators cannot drrm of ultimate eurcesa They must kno* that tbe United States will never yield tbe mouth of tbe Mlaaiaalppl, and Florida, with Its command of tbe Gulf, to any such power a a tbe 'Confederate Statea,' with their paltry two and a half milliona of white people." ? m ? m ? ? ?r-_ i_ a rm* Wi - t m uviiisimi ? liivi or i ioor??t uok who are dreading least these troops may be usod for sa aggressive war, certainly overlook the fact that do more of tb?m can possibly be assembled and prepared for service with the meana tbe Government have at hand, thaa sufficient to guard the public property here, and in States that do not pretend to have thrown off tbelr allegiance, ere the whole subject passes, by lsw, from tbe control of the President to that of Congress We are very sure that if he had every one of tbe seventy-five thousand men called out. at this moment rnidv to march at Ike Up of the drum, and all the paraphernal la of war sufficient to sustain them in Its ureeMful prosecution, already prepared, the PresIdeot would do nothing whatever with tbem likely to Induce the patriotic Union men rf the non-seceded slaveholdlng States to believe that the Oorernment'a purpoae ia to romyil the sword to be, rather than to prtvtni it from becoming, the final arbiter m thia deplorable quarrel. Without auch preparation on the part of the Government. It ia beyond all question true that the Oligarchy would march to thia point their troop*?

Is it not known b* all to have been a main I feature of the conspiracy concocted here, by which the revolution was effected ? Would not the President have been most shamefully negligent of his high trust had he failed to Insure the safety of this city, ?nd the great military keys of the commerce of the United States that mav nnf ho oivon un ?r? runorpsfl nnA a n?. tlonal convention to direct * Had be determined quietly to surrender tbe Federal Metropolis, Ac . to tbe Oligarchy, would be not, of his own act.

The doors were closed, but tbe crowd overcame the officers, and some few raabed Inside; but they did not succeed In effecting any mischief One man was arrested by Lieut Fuller, but he was speedily rescued by the crowd. The concourse of people Increased very rapidly, and Chesnut street from Third nearly to Fifth, and Fourth street, below Chestnut, wervi densely racked. In the meantime, the Chief of Police, Sir. Rnggles, put the telegraph 1b operation, and he soon tad a considerable force of men on the ground The crowd amused Itself for a tim* by groaning the Palmetto tUg ai.d Secession, ar.d by cheering the Stars and Stripes. American flags were improved in the most comical manner, and displayed from the adjacent buildings, end as each paper representative of the meteor flag made its anpeirance, the crowd greeted It with uproarious cheers. A stuffed eagle was also thrust from an upper window of Kingsley's Express office, and its appearance " brought down'" the street The excitement wii somewhat hlghtened by a large number of printed sheets being thrown out of the windows of Town Sc Co.

Tbe Mayor continued In thla strain for some time and he was constantly cheered with the greatest enthusiasm. A large aud handsome flag was then procured and the Mayor- unfurling It from tbe window again appealed to tbe people to respect it and to <>how their devotlou and loyalty to the flag and the laws by peaceably separating and going to their bonus. Tbe Mayor and tbs flag were cheered over and over again, aud the crowd slowly tblnned away; but up to tbe time of our golug to press, a large number of persons continued to loiter about.

The people were aatltfled and aoon scattered The crowd went to the otficts of tbe Sunday paper*, after their vlalt to tbe Argus, and they demanded of each that tbe Star* and Stripes should be bung out These papers are all faithful to the Union, but the crowd was unwilling that there should be any dodging, and all were required to ahow their colon. The flags were displayed cheerfully by all the oftlces, and this part of the performance went off gcod naturedly. After visiting such of the newspaper offices as had failed to make a display of bunting, the crowd gathered In front of the Poet Office, on Dock street, and demanded that the Star* and Stripes should be thrown out.

DETAILS OF THE FIGHT. HOW THE BATTERIES WORKED. [From the CharUtton Courier of Saitirifay.) At about two o'clock on tbe afternoon of Tbursday, Gen Beauregard made a demand on Major Andmon for the immediate surrender of Fort Sumter, through hit aids. Col. Jaa Cheanut, Jr., Col. Ch'.aolm and Capt Lee Maj Anderaon replled that auch a courae would be Inconalatent with tbe duty he was reaulred by his government to perform. The answer was communicated by the general-ln-chief to President Davis About nine o'clock. General Beauregard received a reply from Preaident Davla. to the telegram in relation to the aurrender of Sumter, by which be was Instructed to Inform Maj Anderaon that if be would evacuate tbe fort he held when bla preaent aupply of provialona wan exhausted, there would be no appeal to arma. Thia proposition waa borne to Ma). Anderaon by th? aid who had delivered the first meaaage and he refused to accept tbe condition. TheGeneral In-Chief forthwith gave tbe order that the batteries be opened at half-past four o'clock on Friday morning Maj Anderson's reply was decisive of the momentous question, and Gen. Beauregard determined to apply the last argument. At tbe gray of the morning of Friday the roar of cannon broke upon the ear. The expected sound was answered by thousands The houses were In a few minutes emptied of their excited occupants, and tbe living stream poured through all the atreets leading to the wharves and battery. On reaching our beautiful promenade we found it lined with ranks of eager spectators, and all tbe wharves commanding a view of the battle were crowded thickly with human forms. On no gala occasion have we ever seen nearly so large* numa _# i_ ji - wr 01 maiea on our oauery as graced the breezy walk on tblseventful morning There they stood with palpitating heartaand pallid faces, watching the white atnoke aa It ros?* in wreaths upon the soft twillghtair,and breathing out fervent prayera for tbelr gallent kinsfolk at the guns At thirty minutes past four o'clock the conflict was opened by the d schnrjje of a shell from the howitzer battery on James' Island, under the command of Capt. Geo S James, who followed the riddled Palmetto banner on the bloody battle fields of Mexico. The sending of this harmful messenger to Major Anderson was followed by a deafening explosion, which was caused by the blowing up of a building that stood In front of the battery. While the white smoke was melting away Into the air another shell, which Lieut. \V. H Gibbes has the honor of having flred. pursued its noiseless way towards the hostile fortiligation The honored missive described Its beautiful curve through the halrny air. and falling within the hostile fortress, scattered its deadly 1 - .11 1 '<Tn<a in an <11milun? rniouiirie then took up the tale of death, and In a moment the pun* from the redoubtable gun battery on Cummings' Point, fr m Captain McCready's battery, from Capt Jas.

Major Anderson received the shot and shell In silence And some excited lookers-on, Ignorant of the character of the foe, were fluent with conjectures and predictiops, that revived the hope fast dying out of their hopeful and tender hearts. But the short-lived hope was utterly extinguished when the deepening twilight revealed the stars and stripes floating proudlv in the breeze Th? batter Us continued at regular intervals to belch iron vengeance, and still no answer was returned by the l'oe About an Lour after the booming began, two ball? rushed his*in|> through the air. and glanced harmless from the stuccoed brkks of Fort .Moultrie 'I'he embrasnrm <>f tt-? - ? ? ? - . fortress gave forth no sound a .rain till between s'x and ?-ven o'clock, when, as If wrathful from enforced delay, from casemate and parapet the I'nited States officer poured a storm of iron bail upon Fort Moultrie, Steven#' iron battery, and tbe floating battery. The broadside was returned with spirit by the gallant gunners at these important posts. The tiring now tfgan in good earnest. Tbe curling white smoke hung above the angry pieces of friend and foe, aud tbe jarring boom rolled at regular Intervals on tbe anxious ear. The atmosphere was charged with the smell of villainous saltpeter, and, as If In sympathy with the melancholy scene, the sky wts covered with btavy clouds, and everything wore a somber aspect.

Sumter only occasionally replying It then became apparent that the fortreaa, on which all eyes were riveted, waa on fire A denae maga of smoke waa seen gradually to rlae above the ramparts Some supposed It waa merely a signal from Anderson to draw In the fleet to his aid. which were in the offing quietly riding at anchor. Four vesaela could be clearly distinguished ranged In line directly overtbe bar. and apparently blockading the port completely. Their Ions? blark hulls and smok?? stacks proved them to be I-'ederal steamers. Every one anxiously awaited the issue, and the suspense was very exciting. W 111 they come in and engage the batteries? was the query of every one. Poltroons If they do not, was the response of every person. The batteries fully expected the engagement to become general, and by the aid of glasses it was thought that a movement was made to this end by two of the war ships All on shore soon thought to see the sand flying from the Morris ltland batteries. About 10 o'clock all attention was riveted on Sumter. Beyond doubt a Are was raging In the Fort. The flames soon burst through the roofs of the houses with! u the walls, ar.d the densest smoke and flamts Issued In volumes. At this time Anderson scarcely llred a shot. The continual bursting of shells and showers of grape over the guns on the ramparts drove the noldlers under cover. From the iron battery on Cummina's Point a continuous Are was kept up. Its rifled cannon played sad havoc on that portion of Sumter facing it The ? .; r ?i? ??*? * - 1 untit; Hum me uuaunjr uaiiery aaa irom tori Moultrie wu very regular. Standing on Charleston battery and looking seaward you have, on the r ght, the mortar battery and Fort Johnson, nearest the city, and two miles and a-balf off A mile and a-half from Fort Jobnton is Cumming's Point battery.mounting three ten inchColumbalds, three 64-pounders, three mortars and one rilled cannon. Cummlng's Point is only fifteen hundred yards from Fort Sumter, and it can be readily imagined what havoc a regular tire created The men working the guns were perfectly protected by the sand redoubt, which was scarcely injured by the weak fire which Major Anderson kept up on It. The batterv was commanded by Major Stevens, with the < itadel Cadets under bis direction. Each shell from this battery found its destination within Sumter, and during the entire bumbirdmeut scarcely one missile of this character missed its mark On the other side of the barber, directly opposite Sumter, on oue of its strongest sides, lay Fort Moultrie, which durinir the na?t thr??? mnnth* had bt-en strengthened by every appliance which military art could suggest Its merlons, moats, glacies, embrasures, etc., perfectly protected the weak walls of the old fort, and made the gunners secure while at work from this pblnt. Throughout the engagement vast uuinbers of hot shot and heavy balls were discharged, llebind the point on Sullivan's Isiiind, nearest Charleston, the floating battery was situated with two sixty-four and two forty-two pounders, and its impenetrable sides of iron and palmet'o logs rendered the men so securs that thev indulged during the contest in pastimes with cards, etc. Mount Pleasant battery, five hundred yards from the floating battery, mounts two mortars within excellent range of Sumter, and from here the shells were thrown with the greatest precision Thus you now have all the positions of the works bearing directly on Sumter. Through I Frldav morninir all fhwu? ???- ? --*? ? ?J ?. wv. >yu ?* CIC O^UTCIJ engaged. Three times Anderson's barrack* were set on fire, and twice bis men extinguished the fiames. but to do this It was necessary to employ nil the force in drawing water. More effectively to do this, it was necessary tbat tome meu should go outside the walls aad band buckets through the port-boles, being me in while exposed to the terrific fire of the batteries. This expedient for | obtaining water was not resorted to until the third time the quarters were on fire, and the fire and flames had increased to such an alarming pitcti | Meantime Major Anderson's guns were silent, and bis enemies1 active. By noon the fiamcs burst from every quarter, and from many of the portholes. and it soon became evident that the destruction of the fortress was complete. INCIDENTS OF THE SURRENDER. A Charleston dispatch reiatts the following incidents: Major Anderson stated that he surrendered his swora to uen. Beauregard as tbe representative of the Confederate Government Hen Beauregard said be would not receive it ao brave a man. lie aaya Maior Anderson made a staunch light, and elevated himself in tbe estimation of every true Carolinian During tbe tire, when Major Anderson's flagstaff was shot away, a boat put off from Morris island, carrying another American flat; for him to fight under?a noteworthy instance of the honor and chivalry of tbe South Carolina s ceders and their admiration for a brave man During the raging of tbe flames In Fort Sumter, tbe ittlrers arid soldiers were obliged to lay ou their facts in the casements to prevent suffocation. Major Anderson expressed himself much pleased that 110 lives had been sacrificed, and says that to Providence alone is to be attributed the bloodless victory. He compliments the firing of tbe Carolinians, and tbe large number of exploded shells lying around attr t their effectiveness. The number c: soldiers in the fort was about seventy, besides twenty-live workmen, who assisted at the kuiis Hisstockof provisions was almost exhausted, however. He would have been starved out in two more days. The entrance to the fort is mined, and the South Carolina officers who visited it alter the surrender were told to be careful, on account of the heat, lest it should eiplode The scene In toe city after the ra sing of the flag of truce and the surrender is lnde?crlbabl?-; Unpeople were perfectly wild Men on horseback roue lurougo me streets proclaiming the new. amid the greatest enthusiasm. The forces of Major Anderson were entirely inadequate to effectually work the guns and attend to tne Incidental requirements. It Is not to be wondered at, und?fr the circumstances, that Fort Sumter surrendered. The men were ou duty 36 hours, with balls or shells striking the casemates and guns of the fort constantly. Competent military men state that the iHtense vibration or shock produced on the brain and nervous system of those in the vicinity is terribly exhausting. At the siege of Sebastopol the mej who worked the guns were relieved every twenty minutes and groomed with whisky and iannel to enable them to endure (he concussion produced by the firing of their own guos and the shock of the enemy's balls and shells striking the fortification. The concussion attending the firing of a columblad la the enclosed casemate of a fort U said to be terrible. ib contrast with tbe conduct of Mm Inaction of tbe war fleet, it la staled that an old slave passed through the hottest Are, with a sloop load of wool, on Friday evening, and came safely to the city. Somebody told him be would be killed In the attempt. '-Can't helpdat," said be, "must go tods town to-night. If anybody hurt dls chile or dls boat, masaa see "blm about It shu&h." His sloop received four shots. It is reported that Major Anderson sent in bis resignation, to take effect on the Inauguration of the Ltncoln government, but do notice was taken of it. The Fort is burned into a mere shell; not a particle of woodwork can be found. Tbe ?uns on one tide of tbe parapet are entirely dismounted, othera spilt, wLile tbe gun carriages are knocked iuto splinters. Major Andersen says tbe accuracy of the firing surprised him and tnat if be bad bad two hundred more men, one-half would have been killed for want of auitable protection. Major Anderaon aaya it la preposterous to flgbt aucb a people. One of tbe officers In the fort remarked that tbey had endt-avortd not to lire on expoacd individuals "Yea," aald Major Anderaon, "1 gave ordera not to alt;ht men, but to alienee batteries ' Beth men and officers were l?ej;rlmmed with smoke and powder. The batteries which hsve done the most mischief are the Dablgroen battery, Sievena battery and the rifled cannon Aa regards harbor defense, tbe fort is just as mm 'I' I. ? ' KiiwaiiTii. luc twriiwia VI |WWC1, UMgMi there In prime condition, and Dear on both sides. Major Auderson w*a obliged to throw overboard a large quantity of powder to prevent explosion, and It was floating around the fort to-day. On? of the alas carried brand)' to Major Anderson in a beat, after the Hre, and the latter said it was very acceptable, as the men were completely exhausted by their labors. 1 mention this to show the kiad and chivalrous relation betwn?n the offlcete. Before going late action M?jer Anderson teat word by an aid of General Beauregard to the Governor, thanking him for kiad attentions during the past two moatha, and very solemnly s*id. ' Farewell, gentlemen, if we do not meet airain bete, I hope we shall ox* in a halter 1W14." The fort bu b?tn irarrlaonsd by tb?
