rliest moment the remains of the fallen will return to us. I am overwhelmed with surprise, that a peaceful march of American citizens over the highway, to the defence of our common capital, should be deemed aggressive to Baltimoreans. Through New York the march was triumphal. To Adams & Co.'s Express, Boston: Can't you get the bodies of our dead through Baltimore? The Mayor telegraphs the railroad is interrupted. Major Ladd, who is referred to above, was an officer on the staff of Major-General Sutton; and Major Ames, also mentioned, was an officer on the staff of Major-General Andrews, of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia.

April 22.—The Governor telegraphs to the Superintendent of the Springfield Armory, Can you send me to-night a first-rate armorer, who is a judge of arms, ready to go where he may be wanted for six weeks? A first-rate armorer, Charles McFarland, was procured, who went abroad with Mr. Cro
ade a survey of the forts, and especially of Fort Warren, before the two battalions had taken possession, his report would have been of a different tenor, and he would have accorded to the soldiers praise instead of censure. They certainly deserved it: they saved the Government time and money in making the forts habitable, and by putting them in a condition to defend the harbor, and maintain garrisons. The Governor, on the 25th of April, appointed the three major-generals of militia,—Messrs. Sutton, Morse, and Andrews,—with a portion of their respective staff, an examining board to pass upon the qualification of persons elected officers of new companies.

Raymond, and, for Judgecate,
. Edward C. Rice, of Framingham, that he might appoint him on his staff. There was no place for him in the three years regiments. The Governor referred the matter to the Adjutant-General, who replied,— I presume that a staff appointment by one of our militia brigadier-generals would answer the purpose. It did in the case of Colonel T. Bigelow Lawrence, who received an appointment upon the staff of General McDowell, upon a commission which he held as an officer on the staff of Major-General Sutton, Second Division M. V.M. There are four vacancies in the staff of Brigadier-General Peirce: if he will appoint Mr. Rice, I believe it will accomplish the purpose sought for by General Humphries. And it did.
