ory to the South on the subject of slavery. I listened to his harangue, and when he had finished I obtained the floor, asking to be permitted to take part in the discussion. I determined at once to kill their treasonable plot, hatched by John C. Calhoun, the Catiline of America, by asking questions. I felt then that it was my duty to stand by my country in opposition to these conspirators, as I now feel it my duty to bare my breast in its defence. Why, Baltimoreans, do you stand idle whenn to warrant a dissolution of the Union--nothing in the defeat of a political party to warrant the overthrow of our political fabric, and nothing in the present revolt but the unholy aspirations of personal ambition. In 1835, the friends of Mr. Calhoun in Washington City made an effort to induce the Democratic party to adopt a resolution to declare that the Congress of the United States had no power to legislate on the subject of slavery in the territories. I protested then against the open
nket upon all their hopes. They made no secret of denouncing the rebel Government for not making a better defence. declaring there was no safety to the cities on the coast, and that no dependence whatever could be placed upon the fortifications. A tone of despair seemed to prevail, and the people were loud in their denunciations of a Government which gave them no security, nor intelligence of the actual condition of affairs, and the result of operations. On the 13th of November Quartermaster Calhoun informed him that he had received a despatch ordering his release on parole, to go to Richmond to carry out a proposition for an exchange. Lieut. Worden left Montgomery on the 14th, having given his parole not to divulge any thing which he might learn while in transit, to the disadvantage of the rebel Government. This parole was of no disadvantage to the National Government, from the fact that he saw nothing. He arrived at Richmond on Sunday evening, November 17th, having been
tes arms and ammunition that Dr. Chase had here recruiting for the Tenth regiment, (J. Boheve's,) robbed the post-office of all its contents and all my clothing but what I had on my back, and a box of clothing for the soldiers, and took from J. L. Armstrong's store a considerable amount. I wish you would see if we could have a force to protect us here; if we can't we will have to let all go in this county, and all Union men will have to leave. The Rangers have all been driven in here from Calhoun, Gilmer, Wirt, and Roane, on to the head of the right-hand fork of Sandy Big Run and the left-hand fork of Mill Creek. When they came into town Dr. Chase took his men and went to Cottageville, and the arms he left he locked up in the jail. They took an axe and picked the lock and took them. Chase had gathered up all the arms in the country of different persons. There was but one or two guns in the place, and one of them I had with me. We are in a bad way here. Yours, respectfully, Jo
, between a number of Confederate cavalry, headed by Colonel Forrest, of Mississippi, and three hundred Hessian cavalry, under Major Murray. The writer, after detailing a few preliminaries, says: Our men immediately put off in pursuit toward Calhoun, and in a short time came up with the enemy and opened fire upon his rear. The enemy wheeled and fired, but in a few moments fled in the wildest confusion, with our gallant band in hot pursuit. Never were men more terribly in earnest than was ir handkerchiefs, and shouted our gallant boys on to the charge. Lieut.-Col. Love, who had gone out as a guide to the expedition, it is said had to run through Sacramento, and bets of two to one were freely offered that he would be the first to Calhoun. What became of the gallant Major Murray, who commanded the expedition, we couldn't tell, but it is supposed that he was outdistanced in the race, and must have made fine time. The gallant and dashing Starnes was in front of the charge, and Ca
