Doc. 43.--the Inaugural address. How it is received. The Baltimore papers discuss the tone of Mr. Lincoln's Inaugural Address. The American regards the address with favor. The tone of the speech is pacific ; that is to say, Mr. Lincoln avows his determination to preserve peace, so far as it may be done, in the performance of his duty as he understands it. He denies that he has the power to recognize the right or the fact of secession, and therefore denies that he has the liberty to refrain from the performance of what would be plain obligations if no such right or fact had been assumed to exist. While, therefore, he announces his intention to collect the revenue and to possess and defend the forts, he distinctly declares that he will do these things in such a manner as to avoid the necessity for strife, if it is possible to do so. It is perfectly evident, from the whole tenor of his Address, that he does not intend to be the aggressor, if peace may not be preserved.

When the building caught fire, the enemy commenced firing hot shot. Mr. Sweaner of Baltimore was badly wounded in three places by a piece of shell. Many of the South Carolina officers who came into the fort on Saturday, who were formerly in our service, seemed to feel very badly at firing upon their old comrades and flag. Commander Hartstene acted like a brother. He was very active in offers of service, and when he went aboard the lighter he ran up the American flag over us. He took charge of the men left behind wounded by the accident. He asked Capt. Doubleday to procure

All powers vested in the Governor of the State will be strenuously exerted, to preserve the peace and maintain inviolate the honor and integrity of Maryland. I call upon the people to obey the laws, and to aid the constituted authorities in their endeavors to preserve the fair fame of our State untarnished. I assure the people that no troops will be sent from Maryland, unless it may be for the defence of the national capital. It is my intention in the future, as it has been my endeavor in the past, to preserve the people of Maryland from civil war-; and I invoke the assistance of every true and loyal citizen to aid me to this end. The people of the State will in a short time have the opportunity afforded them, in a special election for Members of the Congress of the United States, to express their devotion to the Union, or their desire to see it broken up.

Proclamation of the Mayor of Baltimore. Mayor's office, April 18, 1861. I heartily concur in the determination of the Governor to preserve the peace and maintain inviolate the honor and integrity of Maryland, as set forth in the above proclamation, and will earnestly co-operate with his efforts to maintain peace and order in the city of Baltimore.

And I cannot withhold my expression of satisfaction at his resolution that no troops shall be sent from Maryland to the soil of any other State. The great questions at issue must, in the last resort, be settled by the people of the city and State for themselves at the ballot box, and an opportunity for a free expression of their opinions will speedily be afforded at the approaching Congressional election. If the counsels of the Governor shall be heeded we may rest secure in the confidence that the storm of civil war which now threatens the country will at least pass over our beloved State and leave it unharmed; but if they

Doc. 79.--statement of Mayor Brown. Baltimore, April 21. Mayor Brown received a despatch from the President of theupon his own. He admitted the excited state of feeling in Baltimore, and his desire and duty to avoid the fatal consequences might be brought through Maryland, without going through Baltimore, by either carrying them from Perryville to Annapolis, ans uninterruptedly, the necessity of their passing through Baltimore would be avoided. If the people would not permit them a own best route, and, if need be, fight their way through Baltimore, a result which the General earnestly deprecated.

(Renewed cheering.) Let us take an honest pride in the fact that our Sixth Regiment made a way for itself through Baltimore, and were the first to reach the threatened capital. In the war of opinions, Massachusetts has a right to be the first in the field. I said I knew the whole argument for secession. Very briefly let me state the points. No Government provides for its own death; therefore have waited to hear the Northern conscience assert its purpose. It comes at last. (An impressive pause.) Massachusetts blood has consecrated the pavements of Baltimore, and those stones are now too sacred to be trodden by slaves. (Loud cheers.) You and I owe it to those young martyrs, you and I owe it, that their blood shal
