In the latter it would i eq uiie no prophet to foretell the result. It is reported that Mr. Buchanan has ipceived, infoi mally the commis- sioners appointed by the rebels ,ol South Gaiolina to negotiate for the public, propeity in the harbor of Charleston, and for It is also leported that ,lho President disapproved the conduct of, Major who bping that he would able lo defend, Foi t Moultrie Ihe few men under his command, wisply took possession e Fort Surnpter, where he pro- tect ,liimself and country the disgiace wh'ich might have occutrec that he is going to give them their if he haJ remained in Fort Moultrle.
