nd a thousand equally eager questions popped from the impatient crowd, There is news, indeed! answered Captain Semmes. Listen,. my friends, for the war has commenced in earnest. And here, on the quiet southern river, we first heard how Baltimore had risen to drive out the troops; how there had been wild work made in spite of the police, and how hot blood of her citizens had stained the streets of the town. The account ended with the city still in frightful commotion, the people arming real policy. Maryland must act at once. Egad, sir, at once, if she wants to come to us, sir, said the colonel, haranguing his group. If she doesn't, egad! she'll be tied hand and foot in a week! Facilis descensus, you know! Pshaw, Baltimore's noted for mobs, said an Alabamian. This is only a little more than usual. In a week she'll forget all about it. This is more than a mob, answered a Virginian quietly. Blood must come out of it; for the people will all go one way now, or
And we'll all go out after a few fights, if we don't get popped off, put in George H., and then we'll feel we've won our spurs! Well, I'm not too modest to say that I think we are pretty expensive food for powder, said John C., but then we're not worth more than the Crescents, the Cadets, or Hampton's Legion. The colonel's sons are both in the ranks of the Legion, and refused commissions. Why should the best blood of Carolina do more than the best blood of Virginia? And see those Baltimore boys, said Adjutant Y., of a Georgia legion. They've given up home, friends and wealth to come and fight for us and the cause. They don't go round begging for commissions! If my colonel didn't insist I was more useful where I am, I'd drop the bar and take a musket among them. That sort of stock I like! But if Lieutenant Y. had taken the musket, a stray bullet might have spoiled a most dashing major-general of cavalry. I fear very much, I answered, that the war will be long enough
southern sympathizers in Maryland, that they did not come forth to aid their friends. The part of Maryland through which southern armies passed in both campaigns were sparsely settled, and that with strong Union population. The Marylander of Baltimore and the lower counties-whatever may have been his wishes, was gagged and bound too closely to express, far less carry them out. Baltimore was filled with an armed guard and was, moreover, the passage-way of thousands of troops; the lower countiBaltimore was filled with an armed guard and was, moreover, the passage-way of thousands of troops; the lower counties were watched and guarded. And, moreover, the Confederate army was not practically in Maryland, but from the 20th of June to the 1st of July. The taunt to the down-trodden Marylanders-oppressed and suffering bravely for conscience sake-we must in justice to ourselves believe only the result of grief and disappointment. Men, like goods, can only be judged by sample; and, from the beginning to the end of the war, Maryland may point to Archer, Winder, Elzey, Johnson and many another noble

information she brought, sewed in her riding-habit, or coiled in her hair. Nor were these coarse camp-women, or reckless adventurers. Belle Boyd's name became historic as Moll Pitcher; but others are recalled --petted belles in the society of Baltimore, Washington and Virginia summer resorts of yore — who rode through night and peril alike, to carry tidings of cheer home and bring back news that woman may best acquire.

But it may be that the real benefits of running the bloc. were counterbalanced by inseparable evils. The enhancement of prices and consequent depreciation of currency may not have felt this system appreciably; but it tempted immigration of the adventurous and vicious classes, while it presented the anomaly of a government
