h a bold and brilliant dash, it would have been a disaster to our government of almost incalculable weight and potency. Maryland undoubtedly would have hastened to join the Confederacy in such a contingency. That would have transferred the line of 's Ferry. Their plan was to come down from Harper's Ferry to the Relay House and take Washington from that side; but as Maryland will not declare for secession I feel very sure the other point of which they will take possession will be Manassas Juncross the country, I answered. Without an escort? asked he. They won't need any more than a yellow dog anywhere in Maryland, as far as I have seen. I bowed and left the presence. We were at the Relay House at eleven o'clock the next morni Winans. I also thought that if such a man, worth $15,000,000, were hanged for treason, it would convince the people of Maryland, at least, that the expedition we were upon was no picnic excursion, and would show those disposed to join the rebel arm

who came to me voluntarily, men, women, and children. I had $60,000 worth of them. That question included the slaves of loyal men. In this matter I wanted the sanction of the government. I had adopted a theory on this question for myself in Maryland, and got rapped over the knuckles for it by Governor Andrew. I had learned what manner of man Scott was, and I was desirous to take instructions from him for my action but not for my law. If Mr. Hay had stopped at the point where he was led 1861. Lieutenant-General Winfield Scott: General:--I have the honor to report the safe return of an expedition under Lieutenant Crosby, of my command, upon the Eastern shore, for the purpose of interrupting the commerce between the rebels of Maryland and their brothers in Virginia. I also enclose herewith a copy of a report of a reconnoissance of the position of the enemy, made from a balloon.

Upon the same theory upon which I felt myself bound to put down insurrection in Maryland, while it remained loyal, whether that insurrection consisted of blacks or whites, by the same loyalty to the Constitution and laws, I felt bound to confiscate sey want to see me to have any further explanations, I will go to Washington. I did go to Washington, but at the time I was there, Lee had made a movement into Maryland and Pennsylvania, and fear had seemed to have taken possession of everybody, especially the general-in-chief. Indeed, I was told by one major-general that I hadnclude all prisoners of war, the Confederate authorities have made a declaration that the negroes heretofore held to service by owners in the States of Delaware, Maryland, and Missouri are to be treated as prisoners of war when captured in arms in the service of the United States. Such declaration that a part of the colored soldi

With foresight and persistent effort I caused the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia to be so made ready that they were the first organized armed force marched into Washington for its defence. I seized Annapolis, one capital of Maryland, and held it, and thus opened and held open a way for the transportation of Northern troops to the capital, which insured its safety. I occupied and fortified the heights at the Relay House, and so prevented an assault upon Washington from Harper's Ferry, which the rebels had captured and were occupying for that purpose. From thence I made a descent upon Baltimore and established it a Union city, which it always remained. These movements prevented the secession of Maryland, and held her loyal during the war. At Fort Monroe I first declared the legal principles by which, under military law, slaves could be set free, and thereby made the President's proclamation of emancipation possible.
