e means of getting them, under any kind of pretence, dead or alive. He says there are several persons now in the Northern cities trying to get a sufficient supply. Jefferson Davis had notified Gov. Letcher of his intention to take command of the troops, and would plan the operations of attack.--Col Lee and Gen. Beauregard would have command of a force of several thousand. My informant further says that he was told that there were five men who had taken an oath to assassinate President Lincoln and Gen. Scott, if it cost them their lives. They are to go direct to Washington, and will attempt their purpose as soon as the first conflict takes place. My informant is a highly respectable gentleman, and I give the above points as he gave them to me, with this exception, that they are not half so startling as detailed by him Some further items telegraphed from Washington on the 8th will be read with interest, though they show that the newspaper correspondents are entirel
The negro-stealing at Key West. --From an official repot, it appears that Capt. Meigs, of the U. S. Army, has been acquitted by President Lincoln of the complaints which followed him from Key West, on his return from reinforcing the fortifications in the Gulf, in relation to carrying slaves hired to work at Key West to Pensacola and Fort Pickens, and there employing them. It is contended that the contract has not been in reality violated — though it was — and that "it is not to be presumed that the slaves will be compelled to become combatants at all, except in a case where military necessity would justify making any persons found in the fort become combatants

The buoys in Pamlico Sound on the Swash, and about the inlets of Ocracoke and Hatteras, have been removed. Charles Henry Foster was notified to quit Murfreesboro', N. C., the other day, in consequence of his abolition proclivities. A storm in New York last Monday night tore down most of the Union flags. Another cargo of ice has arrived at Savannah from Nova Scotia. Mrs. Lincoln is going to New York to indulge in the luxury of a little shopping. There was a heavy fall of snow in some portions of Western Virginia last week. A new edition of Hardee's tactics is to be issued at Memphis shortly. The steamer Minnesota sailed from Boston on Wednesday, with sealed orders. The family of General Robert E. Lee continue to reside at Arlington. The Baltimore American denies that any soldier at the Relay House has been poisoned.
Action of the Maryland Legislature--Lincoln's troops marching through Baltimore. Alexandria, May 10. --In the Maryland Legislature, on Thursday. Mr. Wallace submitted a report from the Committee on Federal Relations. It declares that the war waged by the United States upon the people of the Confederate States is unconstitutional, repugnant to civilization and sound policy, and subversive of our free institutions. A protest is entered against the war on the part of Maryland; she declares that she will take no part, directly or indirectly, in its prosecution, and the assertion is made that Maryland desires a peaceful and immediate recognition of the independence of the seceded States. The present military occupation of the State of Maryland is protested against as unconstitutional, oppressive and illegal; and the final resolution asserts that, under existing circumstances, it is inexpedient to call a sovereign Convention at this time, or to take measures for the immediate
Exactly. --A religious writer in the New York Sun says: "It is impossible, in such a recruiting, to prevent a few vile, obscene, scoundrelly fellows from creeping into every one of our regiments. There are often men in the companies who ought to be in irons."--In the course of human events it may happen that these "scoundrelly fellows" in Lincoln's army will meet with their just reward.
Maryland. --In the Maryland Senate on Wednesday, the resolution to appoint committees to visit Presidents Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, and the Governors of Virginia and Pennsylvania, were filled by electing Messrs.

they come to us from an unquestionable source. We learn that Carlile is in correspondence with Lincoln's Cabinet, and that he now has in his possession a letter from Cameron, Secretary of War, and a member of Lincoln's Cabinet, offering to send Black Republican troops into North western Virginia for the purpose of subjugating the people, and separating this section of the State from the East. rn to secrecy, yet Carlile spent a whole day in Washington, and was, we are told, closeted with Lincoln's Cabinet. That night, when Carlile passed Harper's Ferry the Armory buildings were in flames by the order of Lincoln. The question is, how did Lincoln know of the passage of the Secession Ordinance so as to telegraph to Harper's Ferry to destroy the buildings and arms to prevent them from bLincoln know of the passage of the Secession Ordinance so as to telegraph to Harper's Ferry to destroy the buildings and arms to prevent them from being captured With what fiendish exultation must Carlile have sit in the cars and witnessed the flames lit up by his treason! How he must have looked like some exaggerated demon, raised from the pur
Declaration of War. The Southern Confederacy has picked up the gauntlet that Lincoln has thrown down, and answered his threats with a declaration of war. The war that is forced upon us is a war between the free and independent South and the Black Republican despotism at Washington. The South has exhausted every measure for peace, but she is ready for the solemn alternative. Nothing can be more manly and dignified than both the style and manner of this important State paper. The South enters upon this warfare with means and resources which render her more than equal to the maintenance of her independence. She stands upon her own ground; she can bring more man and better soldiers upon that ground than her enemies. There can scarcely be less than a hundred thousand men in arms in Virginia alone, ready to defend to the last drop of their blood all that makes life worth having. Tennessee has summoned fifty thousand volunteers, and the gallant population of North Carolina ar
The attack on the Yankee. --The fact that one of Lincoln's roving pirates was fired on a few days ago, at Gloucester Point, by some Virginia artillerymen, has been mentioned.--The boat (the Yankee,) attempted to pass the fortifications at that place, when six rounds were fired at her, which drove her back.

A liberal construction of his orders would have been justified under the circumstances of the case.
