His Excellency, the President of the United States, having appointed the last Thursday of September as a day of humiliation, fasting, and prayer, and recommended its religious observance, in order to obtain Divine aid, and the return of peace and prosperity, the Archbishop of Baltimore directs that the collect Pro quacumque tribulatione, Despise not, O Almighty God, Thy people who crBaltimore directs that the collect Pro quacumque tribulatione, Despise not, O Almighty God, Thy people who cry to Thee in affliction, but for the glory of Thy name be appeased, and relieve those who are in tribulation. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who with Thee and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth God for ever. Amen. with the Litany of the Saints, ad on each Sunday, as has been hitherto generally practised, in all parochial churches, without addition, diminution, or change.

rays on it, did not look unlike a cataract of liquid silver uniting with a monster glass of ice-cream. When abreast of the Western Wharves, we had a fine view of the seventeen new storehouses built by the Government. These were almost all filled to their utmost capacity with flour, hominy, oats, and other necessaries for the army. The other, or regular store-houses, appeared in the background, and were occupied in a like manner, and filled to a similar extent. Various steamers, from Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and elsewhere, were unloading Government property at the wharves. The utmost activity appeared to prevail among those thus at work. Government wagons crowded the piers. Government property and persons on Government business were constantly being transported across the river in great numbers by means of a flat boat attached to a rope connected with either shore. As we proceeded down the river to Alexandria, the tents on the Virginia side appeared as an
den, have gone into battle; from the hillsides, from the valleys, from the workshops, from the railroads, from the seaside, from the fishing smacks of our dear old commonwealth, they all have come; from every calling, from every profession, from every sect, whether of religion or politics, whether of belief or unbelief, they all have come, under the impulse of a new inspiration. And whatever misfortune, if misfortune should come, might befall our flag or our arms, either at Washington, or Baltimore, or Philadelphia, or New York, we of New England will rally behind the Berkshire Hill and make the Switzerland of New England the rampart of our liberties. (Cries of Bravo, and tremendous cheering.) But neither in New York, nor Philadelphia, nor Washington, will our armies suffer defeat. We went down to Bull Run, as I had the honor to remark in conversation with a gentleman to-day, a congregation of town meetings without a leader. (Laughter.) Wheresoever we march again we march as an ar
stern coast of Virginia were prosecuted, and she has done good service. After some time, however, she became disabled, and her crew were transferred to the P. T. Hartt. As it was advisable to retain the prestige of the Fanny's name, the sign upon her stern was transferred to the P. T. Hartt, and she afterward sailed under the name of the Fanny; so that in reality it was the P. T. Hartt, and not the Fanny, that was captured. The latter, under the name of H. Burden, is now running between Baltimore and Annapolis, in Government service. I am a resident of Brooklyn, and well known in New York and Philadelphia, and for capacity as a commander can produce the best of references. For my courage and that of my crew, I refer to Lieut. Crosby, now of the Pembina, Capt. Rowan, and Lieuts. Maxwell and Eastman, of the Pawnee, under whose immediate command I have been. J. H. Morrison. Mr. Potter, Chairman of the Investigating Committee of the House of Representatives, called the attenti
fternoon, a few minutes before four o'clock, it was reported to me that a battery on shore in Lynn Haven Bay had opened fire on the American ship John Clarke, of Baltimore, which had come in and anchored during the gale, and dragged within range of the enemy's guns, distant about a mile and a half. I got under way and stood down tof the deck that a battery, whose existence had been previously unknown to us, situated on Lynn Haven Bay, had opened fire upon the American ship John Clarke, of Baltimore, which had arrived from Havre the day previous, and, anchoring in the bay during the gale, with two anchors down, had dragged within its range. We could see thewas struck once or twice, I believe, by fragments of shells, but sustained no material damage, and this morning, in charge of a pilot, stood on up the bay toward Baltimore. While nearing the Clarke, at the outset of the engagement, we were considerably astonished, after succeeding in getting our reiterated hail answered, by rece
Doc. 115. speech of Francis Thomas at the front street theatre, in Baltimore, Md., October 29, 1861. My fellow-citizens: I do not think, on any occasion of my ling the Union were consummated in the Democratic Convention at Charleston and Baltimore — for that is the cause — it came on me like a clap of thunder. I did not suence, and to express my peculiar views on this exciting subject, even here in Baltimore. I but repeat here what I have said to the people of Western Maryland, who, my little black boys. (Cheers and laughter. ) There are doubtless some in Baltimore who could be valued at the same price. (Laughter.) You may stand in awe of t view to allay the prejudices which unfortunately exist among the citizens of Baltimore in this great crisis of our country. Prejudices and passions they are; and ne States should be acknowledged, and generally referred to the position which Baltimore would be placed in as a commercial city. He concluded his address at ten o
Doc. 124. proclamation by General Dix, in reference to the Maryland election. Headquarters, Baltimore, November 1, 1861. To the United States Marshal of Maryland and the Provost Marshal of the City of Baltimore: Information has come to my knowledge that certain individuals who formerly resided in this State, and are known to have been recently in Virginia bearing arms against the authority and the forces of the United States, have returned to their former homes with the intention of offer his vote, to commit him until he can be taken into custody by the authority of the United States; and I call on all good and loyal citizens to support the judges of elections, the United States Marshal and his deputies, and the Provost Marshal of Baltimore and police, in their efforts to secure a free and fair expression of the voice of the people of Maryland, and at the same time to prevent the ballot-box from being polluted by treasonable votes. John A. Dix, Major-General Commanding.
which is acting as a tender for us, and proceeded up the river. The Rescue carries a thirty-two-pound gun, and the whole force were armed with Sharpe's rifles. Mr. W. H. Seward, our pilot, accompanied the expedition, and to his skill and coolness much of our success was due. We met with no opposition on our upward passage, though pickets were seen hastily retiring from several points on the river as we approached. Upon reaching the object of our search, we found her to be the Ada, of Baltimore, a new schooner of about one hundred and twenty tons' burden, and said to be the property of a well-known secessionist residing in the vicinity. She was loaded with wood and ready for sea — sails bent, &c. Her crew had evidently just left her upon our approach. As the tide had left her hard and fast aground, we were obliged to abandon our original intention of taking her out, although we towed upon her until we parted all our hawsers. We accordingly made preparations to burn her, and
om his company at the Charleston Arsenal and enlisted on the Beauregard voluntarily; Henry Maylan, seaman, aged twenty-two, born in Ireland; has been deck hand on the New York and Charleston steamers; Henry Pahlow, seaman, aged forty-two, Prussian ; Richard Robinson, seaman, aged forty-seven, native of England; William Perkins, seaman, aged forty-five, born in Ireland, was ten years in the Third regiment United States Artillery, Col. Yates; Richard C. Busey, seaman, aged forty-one, born in Baltimore ; was decoyed on board while drunk and forced to sign the ship's articles; he was a member of a company stationed on Sullivan's Island at the time of the bombardment of Sumter; he says but one man was killed at Moultrie by the bursting of a shell; John Sommer, aged twenty-seven, native of Germany, was paid twenty dollars advance when he shipped — could get no work at Charleston; Frederick Kleinca, native of Germany. The above twenty-seven men are the hardest-looking, most desperate and
ce too strong to be successfully opposed — a force which cannot be resisted in any other spirit than that of wantonness and malignity. If there are any among you, who, rejecting all overtures of friendship, thus provoke retaliation and draw down upon themselves consequences which the Government is most anxious to avert, to their account must be laid the blood which may be shed, and the desolation which may be brought upon peaceful homes. On all who are thus reckless of the obligations of humanity and duty, and all who are found in arms, the severest punishment warranted by the laws of war will be visited. To those who remain in the quiet pursuit of their domestic occupations the public authorities assure all they can give peace, freedom from annoyance, protection from foreign and internal enemies, a guaranty of all Constitutional and legal rights, and the blessings of a just and parental Government. John A. Dix, Major-General Commanding. Headquarters, Baltimore, Nov. 13, 1861.
