nt with a just exposition of the facts of the case. The intervening twenty-three days were employed in active unofficial efforts, the object of which was to smooth the path to a pacific solution, the distinguished personage alluded to co- operating with the undersigned, and every step of that effort is recorded in writing, and now in possession of the undersigned and of their Government. It was only when all these anxious efforts for peace had been exhausted, and it became clear that Mr. Lincoln had determined to appeal to the sword to reduce the people of the Confederate States to the will of the section or party whose President he is, that the undersigned resumed the official negotiation temporarily suspended, and sent their Secretary for a reply to their official note of March 12. It is proper to add that, during these twenty-three days, two gentlemen of official distinction as high as that of the personage hitherto alluded to, aided the undersigned as intermediaries in t
almost the brightness of day. In various localities bonfires had been lighted, and the dun cloud of the burning tar rolled up and away like some spirit of darkness taking its flight from the wrath of an offended Deity. There were several hundred transparencies, with every variety of motto, all of them having reference to the occasion, and to the struggle in which the Southern States are engaged. Some of them were highly amusing, prominent among which was one representing the hegira of Lincoln to Washington, and, upon the opposite side, his supposed speedy exit from that city. There were also numerous flags of the Southern Confederacy, above some of which were blazing torches. The procession, after going over the prescribed route, passed the Exchange Hotel on its return, headed by the Marshals on horseback, and, after reaching Main street, was dismissed, the people quietly returning to their several homes. Nothing that ever transpired here has served to infuse so much enthusia
opy of the following Proclamation, which Gov. Ellis will issue tomorrow morning, I hasten to forward it to you : [State of North Carolina.] A Proclamation by John W. Ellis, Governor of North Carolina. Whereas, by Proclamation of Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, followed by a requisition of Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, I am informed that the said Abraham Lincoln has made a call for 75,000 men, to be employed for the invasion of the peaceful homes of the South, anof April, A. D. 1861, and in the eighty-fifth year of our independence. John w. Ellis. By the Governor: Graham Davis, Private Secretary. The people of this State are now a unit for resistance to the usurper and tyrant, Abraham Lincoln. If the Black Republicans think they can frighten the people of the South by the threats in which they so freely indulge, they "reckon without their host." --The hearts of our people are fired with indignation, and we will now act quickly.
Conflict in Baltimore!passage of Lincoln's troops Resisted!the first blood Spilled on Maryland soil!the National volunteers fighting for the South!martial Law proclaimed. Baltimore, April 19th. --When the Massachusetts Regiment were passing through this city to-day, they were assailed by the citizens with stones and other missiles. The soldiers fired upon the Baltimorean, killing several. The city was placed under martial law. Mr. Garrett, President of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, has refused to transport any more troops, and it is reported that other companies have come to the same determination-- The tracks are said to be torn up in some places. The greatest excitement prevails in the city. The Confederate flag has been raised, and the citizens will stand by the South. [A dispatch was received in this city last night, by the Governor, from a reliable source in Baltimore, which stated that the 7th Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers were attac

To arms! to arms! men of the South, And let the tyrant, Lincoln, know. In thunder tones, from cannon's mouth, You fear nor heed no Northern foe. And, when the foeman's booming bomb Shall, whizzing, whirl athwart the sky-- (Tho' with each shot grim death may come)-- The Fayette —— shall it basely fly? rty, or give me death!" And should we fall upon the field, Oh, tell me not we die in vain: The one who falls with Freedom's shield Is not among the nameless slain; For poet — sons and daughters fair-- Of this, our own free Southern land, Will sing of us in plaintive air, And name us in the hero-band. So, then, to arms! sons of the South, And let the tyrant, Lincoln, know, In thunder tones, from cannon's mouth, You fear nor heed no Northern foe. Richmond, Va., April 19, 1
Rejoicing at Mobile. Mobile, April 19. --An immense meeting, called by Virginia citizens, is now progressing with great enthusiasm and rejoicing. An effigy of Lincoln on a call, just passed the place of meeting, caused uproarious shouting. The city is illuminated, and the band is now playing "Carry me back to Old Virginia."
All hail, Maryland. The stirring news from Baltimore yesterday aroused a perfect Vesuvius of enthusiasm in our city. The manifest hand of Providence is bringing all the Southern States into line. We shall have Lincoln, before long, between two fires, and then Woe, Woe, Woe, to tyrants and traitors!
The people of Abingdon, Va.,fired a salute Thursday evening, on hearing of the secession of Virginia. B. H. Lewis, of Lynchburg, has resigned the mail agency conferred upon him by Lincoln.
he South, or else that Mr. Crittenden's compromise amendments should be submitted to a vote of the people. If the Republicans failed to do this, that Convention solemnly pledged itself to resist, with all their influence, the coercive policy of Lincoln. Where are these men now? We trust the Convention will at once be called together, and let us see whether these men are now ready to join hands with the Abolitionists in tearing down this Government, or whether they still stand true to thedisguise. We have no doubt, and all the circumstances prove, that it was a cunningly devised scheme, contrived with all due attention to scenic display and intended to arouse, and, if possible, exasperate the Northern people against the South. Lincoln and Seward know very well that the right to send a vessel with provisions to Major Anderson involved just the same issue as a reinforcement. Hence it was made in the way that enabled them to get up a story about "humanity, " "relieving a starv
No Mail, bound North, left Richmond last night. It was rumored here yesterday that Lincoln had seized on the Fredericksburg Railroad Company's steamers plying on the Potomac between Washington and Acquia Creek.
