Fort PIckeus. The country is sick at heart over the necessary withdrawal of Auderson from Fort Sumter. It haef better stop crying over what can't be helped, and spend its time i preventing a similar humiliation at Fort Pickens. Says the New York Tribune: If not relieved iu six weeks from this time, Fort Pickens will have to be abandoned just like Furt Sumter, and fc-r the same reason. Fort Pickens and its approaches are being gradually commanded by sand batteries. If it be not forthwith garrisoued and pro visioned for a siege, it cannot be done at all. It must be surrendered without a blow; for the United States must suffer no defeats. If the Government cannot main tain the position, it ought to yield it up without a struggle. If this be done, then the Confederate States will become one of the n...

The idea hclJ out and the reason assigned for the rupture of the Uuiou by the South ern traitors, says the Harrisburg Daily Telegraph, has becu, that the people of the South --ere compelled to escape into a confederacy in order to protect themselves against the aggression of the North. Such assertions have formed the standing argu ments and appeals of Northern doughfaces while advocating the unity and principles of the Democratic party. The dreadful alternative of a disunion is -what has be nighted the people of the North, and here tofore weakened their influence for good in their own section. But it seems now that it was neither the burden of past ag gression nor the fear of future injury that induced disunion. In a speech upon this subject, delivered at Savannah, Ga., on the 21st of March, the Vice Presid...
