We publish to-day the editorial of the New York Tribune on the “approaching conflict” in the Bay of Charleston, to reinforce Fort Sumter. By this time the Tribune will have learned that its vaticinators may sometimes prove incorrect. The first great requisite in successful war, is to appreciate your enemy as he deserves. Neither the Government at Washington, nor the wretched fanatics who support its policy, seem to understand the people of the South. Their contempt, from our long submission to their insulting aggressions, blinds them to a true estimate of our characteristics. Hence they bully and boast, and receive the fate of pretensions and tools and bullies. This [discreet?] commanders of the 2500 soldiers in the fleet off our bar understand the difficulties of their position; and to the infinite chagrin and mortification of our infantry on Morris Island, have declined to land their troops, or make any attempt to reinforce Fort Sumter. They would have been, in all probability, utterly destroyed. What a pity the Editor of the Tribune had not been in command, to carry out his well conceived military operations! or that “eminent soldier who planned the expedition!” – what a pity!
