fairs in that city. The mob spirit is down, and the loyalists are preparing to welcome the Government troops. There will be at least three regiments raised in Baltimore, of one thousand each, and accepted by the Government, not withstanding the attempt of the rebel Legislature of Maryland to deprive Governor Hicks of his proper constitutional power. Troops will be concentrated in Washington to the number of forty thousand.
