wers vested in the marshals by law: now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, in virtue of the powee independence of the United States the eighty-fifth. Abraham Lincoln. By the President. William H. Seward, Secretary of Stf His Majesty against the Colonies. Depend upon it, Messrs. Lincoln & Co., you are wasting treasure and blood to no purpos restoration of confidence and salvation of the Union: and Lincoln & Co. call for troops, and are mustering armies, when all es, to aid in the organization of the troops. In ten days Lincoln will probably have two hundred thousand volunteers at his Where are the benefits? Hartford (Ct.) times. President Lincoln has called an extra session of Congress, to meet on ta line of policy on the part of the administration of President Lincoln, which, if carried out, must entail upon our country e success.

bank, Secretary of Convention. Secession of Virginia The announcement that the Convention of Virginia had passed an Ordinance of Secession, was received with the most universal and profound satisfaction. There are no longer in Virginia two parties. The Union men and the Secessionists are arrayed in a solid band of brotherhood under the flag of Virginia. The only rivalry is which shall do and suffer most in defence of our common honor against the monstrous despotism at Washington. Lincoln's Proclamation has accomplished the union of all parties in Virginia and the South. The Ordinance of Secession is the answer of the Convention to that Proclamation, and the action of the Convention is but the echo of the people's will. The old Union, for which our fathers fought and bled, has been wilfully sacrificed by a Black Republican despot, and he now seeks to wrench from us our Liberty and Independence. Virginia, which led the van in the war of ‘76, now meets him on the threshold.
Doc. 61.--proclamation by Jefferson Davis. Whereas, Abraham Lincoln, the President of the United States has, by proclamation, announced the intention of invading this Confederacy with an armed force, for the purpose of capturing its fortresses, and thereby subverting its independence, and subjecting the free people thereof to the dominion of a foreign power; and whereas it has thus become the duty of this Government to repel the threatened invasion, and to defend the rights and liberties of the people by all the means which the laws of nations and the usages of civilized warfare place at its disposal; Now, therefore, I, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, do issue this my Proclamation, inviting all those who may desire, by service in private armed vessels on the high seas, to aid this Government in resisting so wanton and wicked an aggression, to make application for commissions or Letters of Marque and Reprisal, to be issued under the Seal of

And I hereby proclaim and declare, that if any person, under the pretended authority of said States, or under any other pretence, shall molest a vessel of the United States, or the persons or cargo on board of her, such person will be held amenable to the laws of the United States for the prevention and punishment of piracy.

Under these circumstances, it is my solemn duty to inform you that it is not possible for more soldiers to pass through Baltimore, unless they fight their way at every step. I therefore hope and trust, and most earnestly request, that no more troops be permitted or ordered by the Government to pass through the city. If they should attempt it, the responsibility for the bloodshed will not rest upon me. With great respect, your obedient servant, Geo. Wm. Brown, Mayor. To His Excellency Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States: I have been in Baltimore since Tuesday evening, and co-operated with Mayor Brown in his untiring efforts to allay and prevent the excitement and suppress the fearful outbreak as indicated above, and I fully concur in all that is said by him in the above communication. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Thomas Hicks, Governor of Maryland. To His Excellency President Lincoln. Despatch from the President. Mayor Brown received a despa

Abraham Lincoln is not the President of my choice; no matty would permit, to prevent the election of Mr. Lincoln; but, so help me God, as a citizen and as aradical North less safely democratic.

s distinct from national interest; but adds: This rule acknowledges that it is often necessary to assert the honor of a nation for the sake of its interests. The excitement that threatens secession is caused by the near prospect of a Republican's election to the Presidency. From a sense of propriety as a soldier, I have taken no part in the pending canvass, and, as always heretofore, mean to stay away from the polls. My sympathies, however, are with the Bell and Everett ticket. With Mr. Lincoln I have had no communication whatever, direct or indirect, and have no recollection of ever having seen his person; but cannot believe any unconstitutional violence, or breach of law, is to be apprehended from his administration of the Federal Government. From a knowledge of our Southern population it is my solemn conviction that there is some danger of an early act of rashness preliminary to secession, viz., the seizure of some or all of the following posts: Forts Jackson and St. Phili
re, April 21. Mayor Brown received a despatch from the President of the United States at 3 o'clock A. M., (this morning,) directed to himself and Governor Hicks, requesting them to go to washington by special train, in order to consult with Mr. Lincoln for the preservation of the peace of Maryland. The Mayor replied that Governor Hicks was not in the city, and inquired if he should go alone. Receiving an answer by telegraph in the affirmative, his Honor, accompanied by George W. Dobbin, Joroad. They will proceed to Harrisburg, from there to Philadelphia, and thence by the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, or by Perrysville, as Major General Patterson may direct.
