Shall the _taws or the United States be Enforced? However the people of too United States may differ as to the remedy most certain to restore health to an afflicted country, there ought to lie but one sentiment in regard to the enforcement of the laws. Bat the New York Herald, which may bo said to be the leading apologist of the Distraionists of the South, echoes the scandalous sentiments of the late Democratic State Convention held at Albany, against the enforcement of the laws, and daily attacks the wise precautions of General Scon for the preservation of the public peace and the protection of the National Capital. The Herald of Thursday denounces the collection of troops at Washington as the beginning of a military despotism, and follows this by an assault upon Secretary Drx for in structing an officer of the revenue cutter Robert McClelland, (since seized by the Disunionists at New Orleans), to shoot any man on the spot who attempted to haul down the American flag. Not a wor...

How _viviDiT the suppression of independent opinion by the Disnnionists recalls the example, of those despotisms where newspapers are never seen, and where men are compelled to meet in holes and corners to give utterance to their feelings! But the one case, like the other, establishes the fact that it is as impossible to prevent the expression of the feelings of the human heart as it is to prevent the wind from blowing where it _listeth_, or the sun from shining alike upon the rich and poor. Notwithstanding the inquisitorial espionage which the Disunion leaders have resorted to for the purpose of choking down the affections of the people for their beloved country, the truth breaks out in frequent flashes, tell ing the story that, if ambitious men have given up all their regard for that country, the people whom they have betrayed have no t done so. For instance, we notice that at Athens, Alabama, on the 29th of January, the worMngmen raised the American flag at the court house an...

.Letter from «* Kappa. " I Correspondence of The Press.] Washihgtoh, D.C, Feb. 8,1861. Many of the _Northern papers are full of reports that the _Seeeders at Charleston and at Pcnsaoola will attack the United States forts, Sumpter and _Piokens. But it must be remembered that these forts are garrisoned by a small _j?et efficient force, under the command of brave and faithful United States officers. And as far as is known, the Seoeders havo taken good _caro not to attack a fort, where they have to fight, and to rceet United States troops ready to oppose them. Therefore, I doubt very muoh whether the reports of an immediate assault upon Fort _Sumptor are tr&e. Papers have informed us that the Seceders have employed 2,000 negroes to erect eand-hUie, and have planted cannon behind them, in order to be out of reach of Anderson's shells. And as the President has refuted to comply with tbe request of the Governor of South Carolina to surrender Fort Sumptor, and as Commissioner H...

The Railroad Bill. The Committee of Ways and Means of the Assembly of this State have unanimously decided in favor of reporting the bills for the relief of the _Sunbury and Erie, and Pennsylvania Railroads , which have been presented on behalf of these companies. It _aeema highly probable that they will be adopted at the present session of the Legislature, without material alteration or amendment, although they will probably,encounter some opposition. It is manifestly the true policy of the State to deal in a liberal and generous manner with these great roads, and as far as she can, with* out crippling her own financial resources, to aid and encourage them , because they will necessarily exercise a mighty influence in increasing the value of property in our Commonwealth, and thus swell tne revenues of its citizens, individually and collectively.

City Passenger .Railroads. Those who think that there is no necessity for a Passenger Railway on Seventh and Ninth streets, had better be quick in opposing it, seeing that the State Legislature has now before it a Bill to incorporate a Joint-stock Company with power to raise money to make such a line. From Broad street down to Second, nine streets now have railways upon them: the exceptions are Twelfth , Ninth , and Seventh. To make the contemplated line, for which there surely is no occasion, the rails must be laid on Franklin and Wash_, ington Squares—making a long detour. If the inhabitants on Ninth and Seventh streets were polled, we are confident that nineteen out of every twenty would declare against the proposed line, as unnecessary, and likely to be more annoying than convenient.

Another Message from the President. The President yesterday transmitted to the House of Representatives a message, accompanied with the whole correspondence that has recently taken place with Mr. Hayse, the South Carolina Commissioner.
