nd Carr, Quartermaster Scott and Adjutant Swinney, were the regimental officers, besides Col. Brush and Lieut. Col. Warner. Correspondence, Etc. The following is the correspondence of the authorities with the railroad officials and President Lincoln, on the subject of stopping the passage of troops: Mayor's office, city Hall, Baltimore, April 19, 1861. John W. Garrett, Esq., Pres't Baltimore and Ohio Railroad: Sir We advise that the troops now here be sent back to the bordened,] Thos. H. Hicks, Geo. Wm. Baown, Mayor. We are advised that Wm. Prescott Smith, Esq., besides sending the foregoing by telegraph, sent a special engine ahead of all trains down to Washington, so that there might be no doubt of Mr. Lincoln's receiving it at the earliest moment. The Baltimore directors of the Northern Central Railroad, who constitute only a minority of the board, held a meeting last evening and made a formal protest against the conveyance of any more troops
t — whether it be over Kossuth and Hungary, the Japs and Tommy, the Prince of Wales and his suite, or John C. Hebran, or Lincoln and his Bob-'o-Lincoln of a son. Their present rage is over the Union and Yankee Doodle, and takes a military turn. Thech we are witnessing at present, in New York and elsewhere, and his profuse and magnificent proffers of men and money to Lincoln for aggressive war upon the South, are from the first impulse of passion, and are not the dictates of that sober, secondcket of the great National question. It is theirs just as much as ours. I maintain, on the principles of 176, that Abraham Lincoln has no right to a soldier in Fort Sumter. "But the question comes secondly, 'Suppose we had a right to interfert make her a State. There is no longer a Union. It is nothing but boy's plays. Mr. Jefferson Davis is angry and Mr. Abraham Lincoln is mad, and they agree to fight. One, two, or three years hence, if the news of the afternoon is correct, we shal
panies of volunteers from Rockbridge upon the first announcement of hostilities, does infinite honor to that patriotic and gallant county. --It is a county which was among the first to move in the Revolution, and is in the front rank now, showing that the sons are worthy of their sires. It was a strong Union county up to the moment of the Proclamation, but from that moment, like all men of Virginia, of all parties, who deserve the name of Virginias or of men, it picked up the gauntlet that Lincoln had thrown down, and sent forth one shout from hill and glen, from mountain and valley, "To arms! To arms!" We know the men who have gone from Rockbridge, and if the bodies of our invaders are not as small as their souls, which would render them entirely invisible to the naked eye, we will venture to say that every shot of a Rockbridge rifle brings down the game at any distance, and every cut of a Rockbridge sabre dissolves the union of an abolitionist's head with his carcase. We are glad
An Alarming report. We heard on Saturday a report that caused our very souls to quail within us. It was that Lincoln had sent on to request an interview with Commissioners from Virginia, that existing difficulties might be talked over and thatn't delude Virginia once more to her ruin. Of course, a report that any one in Virginia would now believe anything that Lincoln or his Cabinet could say or swear to, was ridiculous in the extreme; but the bare idea of its possibility was enough to give a man a shaking ague from his head to his heels. For the arms of the Lincoln Government the South has nothing to fear, but let it beware of their arts. Confidence and trust in others are undoubtedly marks of unsophisticated virtue; but, ig breast-plates; over the doors of your houses; in your heart of hearts. Say them after your morning prayers, and when you lie down at night: "Lincoln has deceived me once — that was his fault. If he deceive me a second time, it will be my own."
Washington city. The Washington correspondent of the Examiner says that the secession of Virginia has opened the eyes of some of the time-servers and hypocrites of the metropolis, and their countenances are beginning to be "sicklied o'er by the pale cast of thought. " On the other hand, the Secessionists who have so long been drooping, meet each other on the street with buoyant step and beaming faces. Lincoln is over a mine, and appears to be aware of it. Only think of a President of the United States having sixty armed men in his house to watch while he sleeps. If Maryland will act promptly in concert with Virginia, Washington can be taken with case, and the Cabinet boxed up and sent to Dixie's Land.
ons engaged in these disorderly proceedings to desist therefrom, calling out a militia force for the purpose of repressing the same, and convening Congress in extraordinary session to deliberate and determine thereon: Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, with a view to the same purposes before mentioned, and to the protection of the public peace, and the lives and property of quiet and orderly citizens pursuing their lawful occupations, until Congress shall hbe held amenable to the laws of the United States for the prevention and punishment of piracy. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington, this nineteenth day of April, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-one, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-fifth. [L.

The coward, Lincoln, has been trembling in undetermined timidity upon the brink, until he has finally plunged headlCabinet was in session for some time yesterday evening. During the sitting the Proclamation of Lincoln calling out the militia to subjugate the South, was laid before them; whereupon it was determinration district of Alabama, and which gave 2,000 majority against immediate secession, that the Lincoln appointee to a Federal judgeship, G. W. Lane, has been forced to resign the office, and now stah will cause great drops of cold sweat to stand on the crazy forehead, and the shaking knees of Lincoln to knock together, another red bolt from the sultry war cloud, whose iron hail swept down Sumtenvasion can never shake.

A meeting was held in New York on Saturday, at which 200,000 persons were present.--They adopted resolutions declaring they would sustain the Administration of Lincoln at all hazards. The New York Seventh Regiment was in Trenton last night. [second Dispatch.] Washington, April 21.--The Pawnee and Anacostia left last night, probably for Norfolk. A large body of troops, it is reported, are on the Northern border of Maryland, where they are ordered by Lincoln to remain. Baltimore is now quiet. (?) The mail steamers on the Potomac are detained by the U. S. Government. Everything is quiet here, and a feeling of safety pervades all classes, except stock speculators.
