After a * gallant defence of thirty-one boars, mud a i thorough riddling of (be walls of the fort , j Maj. Anderson seems to have thought it no longer tenable, and hauled dawn tb American flag. The terms of surrender vre unconditional, but M tj. Anderson and bis men were suffered to depart and are t non io Mew )’ork. It Is a remarkable and 1 highly gratifying fact that no lives were lost <an either side during the action and * but few wounds wore received. Fort Piekcns has been reinforced, and it is sup- J posed that an attack will soon be made upon j it. Mr. Lincoln baa issued a proclamation 1 calling for seventy-fire thousand volunteers, of which number Maryland is to furnish three thousand. The war spirit seems to he progressing to a fearful extent, both North and South, and the indications arc that war in good earnest will soon be upon ws. Great excitement exists in the Vir ginia Convention, and it has probably, ere ; this, passed a secession ordinance. The excitement is equally as intense in the o her Bolder Sh vc States, lit Kentucky, • Peuater Breckinridge and G*v. Magoffin ! have telegraphed to the Southern (Vnfed- 1 •racy expressing thrir sympathy and dgni- } lying their willingness to furnish subsun- J tial aid, in the way of men. if needed.— j .

The bells rang out a merry peal and the ’‘Rifles’ fired several volleys iu ; honor of ihr event. We have never wit- ' neared an excitement more general and iu- ; l* D*e than has prevailed in our midst ainoe ' the newh was received.

Hicks for four regi- j meats of Maryland militia to aid the North * in the work of coercion, have produced 1 the.most intense excitement iu every corner I of our county. The current of iht popu- 1 lar hatred is directed exclusively against j Hicks, who is supposed to have acted | throughout, and to be now acting.‘in col- ; lusiou with the administration at Wash ington. A paper, which w give below, ' was drawn up on Tuesday la*. and over fifty signatures were obtained to it iu our ' village alone.

In this design, we | 1 cannot believe that he will receive any ae- 1 live assistance from the Border Slave* States. Wc say active assisteoee.

Mr. Lincoln made his reply iu writing as follows : lion. Me sir*. Preston, Stuart and Ran dolph : —Gentlemen—As a Committee of the Virginia Convention. now iu session yon present me a preamble and resolution iu these word*; "Whereas, in the opinion of this Con ventual, the uncertainty which prevails in the public mind as to the policy which the Federal Executive intends to pursue towards the seceded States is extremely injurious to the industrial and commer cial interest of the country, tends to keep up an excitement which is unfavorable to the adjustment of pending difficulties, and threatens a disturbance of the public peace: Therefore "Retdvri. That a committee of three delegates be appointed to wait on (he President of the United States, press at to him this preamble ami remdytion. and respectfully ask him In communicate to this Convention the policy which the Federal Executive intends to pursue in regard to the Confederate States.” In answer I have to aaj, that having at the beginning of my official term ex pressed my intended policy as plainly as 1 was able, it ia with cheep regret and some mortification I wow learn that there ia greet and injurious uncertainty in the public mind as to whal that policy ia. and what coarse I intend to pursue.
