He had refused and resisted all the subtle temptations and schemes of the traitors, especially in declining to call the Legislature together to give disueeches were secession harangues. Denunciation of the soldiers, eulogies of the South, appeal and protest against invasion and coercion, met stormy applause. Governor Hicks was called to the stand, and yielding to the torrent of treasonable fury, made a short address which chimed in with the current outburst of hostile feeling. reprisal and revenge from the Northern armies; the real motive appears to have been the stronger underlying spirit of insurrection.

On communicating with the shore, they were met by a protest from Governor Hicks, warning them not to land With all his stubborn and ingrained loyalty, the Governor was of a timid and somewhat vacillating nature, and for the moment the clamor of the Baltimore mob overawed his cooler judgment. In this conflict between law a proposal which was at once answered by a dignified rebuke from Mr. Seward. The administration at Washington had not been unmindful of the dangerous condition of Maryland; but great reliance was placed upon the discretion and loyalty of Governor Hicks to avert danger. He had held several personal consultations with the President and Secretary of War; had agreed to hold his people in check, and furnish four Maryland regiments of picked Union men under the call; and to make his compliance e

s the condition of the people, the State Government occupied a position more equivocal. Thomas Holliday Hicks thrust into the gubernatorial chair against the popular vote by the fraud and bloodshed f the best men of the State--without regard to old party lines. But its action was trammelled. Hicks was out in another publication, most solemnly avowing his devotion to the South, and his fixed dpared for action as quietly and as rapidly as possible.

The Legislature at its session had provided for arming 10,000 minute men, but winapolis to Washington and captured Lincoln's bearer of dispatches, whom he sent by an officer to Hicks, who immediately released him. Everywhere through the counties the young men armed and organized.

Governor Hicks was at Annapolis, and advised Butler not to land Northern troops. They are not Northern troops, said Butler. They are a part of the whole militia of the United States, obeying the call of the President. This was the root of the matter — the idea of nationality as opposed to State supremacy. He called on the governor and the mayor of Annapolis. To their remonstrances against his landing and marching through Maryland, Butler replied that the orders and demands of his government were i
