when the State of Maine arrived at Fort Monroe with the Massachusetts troops, the Virginian residents around the fort, who were all Secessionists, were very much surprised, enraged and mortified. They collected around the captain of the steamer, who is as cool and intrepid a specimen of a Yankee as New England contains, and told him significantly, that the troops would never go back to Massachusetts. He replied that that was the last thing they thought of; that the country was so fine they intended to settle, and send for their friends, and he was going to New York to get another load. Another set, belonging to an armed schooner, engaged in enforcing the local laws of Virginia, insolently claimed the right of searching the State of Maine for negroes. The captain told them they should not go aboard to take out anybody, black or white. They replied that, by the laws of Virginia they had the right of search. He retorted that they knew nothing about the laws of Virginia, but sail
On Thursday, 11th of April, telegraphic despatches had been received, which appeared on the bulletins of the Mercury and Courier, at Charleston, S. C., stating that but three States in the North--Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Ohio--had responded to Old Abe's call for troops; that Old Abe had been poisoned, and that Seward held the reins of Government. Another despatch subsequently arrived, which recited that Maine and Vermont had refused to send troops out of their States. When those announcements were read by the people, who assembled round the newspaper offices, there were loud demonstrations of applause. But those remarkable flattering despatches did not stop there; they were followed by others, which declared in large capitals on bulletin boards of those journals, that the famous New York Seventh Regiment, with another corps from Boston, tendered their services to Jefferson Davis to fight against the Black Republicans of the North; and that they had chartered a vessel, a
quake shout awakes the North. Forward! Massachusetts hears that cry-- Hears, and gives the swift reply, Forward! Pennsylvania draws her sword, Echoes from her hills the word, Forward! Brave New York is up and ready, With her thirty thousand steady,-- Forward! Small Rhode Island flies to arms, Shouting at the first alarms, Forward Illinois and Indiana Shriek, as they unroll our banner, Forward! Not behind the rest in zeal, Hear Ohio's thunder-peal, Forward! From Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Comes the same awakening strain, Forward! Old Connecticut is here, Ready to give back the cheer, Forward! Minnesota, though remote, Swells the free, inspiring note, Forward! Iowa and Michigan, Both are ready to a man-- Forward! Not the last in honor's race, See Wisconsin come apace-- Forward! Delaware, New Jersey, rise And put on their martial guise. Forward! Onward! On! a common cause Is yours — your liberties and laws. Forward! Forward, in your strength and pride! God himself is o
nation, or that of others at the South, it shall not change my course. All that I have of position and wealth I owe to the free institutions of the United States, under which, in common with all others North and South, protection to life, liberty, and property, have been enjoyed in the fullest manner. The Government to which these blessings are due calls on her citizens to protect the Capital of the Union from threatened assault; and, although the offer to which you refer has not in terms been made by me, I yet dedicate all that I have, and will, if need, my life, to the service of the country — for to that country I am bound by the strongest ties of affection and duty. I had hoped that Tennessee would be loyal to the Constitution. But, however extensive may be secession or repudiators, as long as there are any to uphold the sovereignty of the United States, I shall be with them, supporting the flag. Yours, &c., Alexander T. Stewart. --Maine Republican Journal, May 24.
The Portland (Me.) Argus publishes the following correspondence:-- dear Sir:--I am requested by Secretary Mallory to indite you a few lines soliciting your acceptance of a commission, commanding in the Confederate Navy of America; your pay to go on from the late of secession of your native State, (South Carolina.) Your high capabilities and qualifications as a seaman and navigator, and knowledge in angles, &c., &c., and associations of your honorable family, proclaim you to be a man of honor, consequently adhering to the great fundamental law of nature — home first, the cause of your own hearth-side before that of strangers. But worse than all, these strangers have waged war against us, and you are abiding with them — thus endorsing their acts; can you wantonly abandon your country, by forming an alliance with a Northern lady? * * * * Here you are offered rank, honor, station, and everlasting employ; whilst the cold-hearted Northerners will even refuse you, (employ.)

177. to the Third Regiment of Maine. by W. C. Baker. When the robber and assassin Stealthily at midnight crept On each dear and sacred object That beside us fondly slept, How we rouse us to protect them, Springing on to their defence-- All unheeding our own safety, Till we drive the robber hence. Thus did you, brave sons of Maine-land, When you heard your country's call, Rise, and in one mighty accent, Answer, “We are ready, all.” Ready now, and all united, To repel the rebel foe, From the wMaine-land, When you heard your country's call, Rise, and in one mighty accent, Answer, “We are ready, all.” Ready now, and all united, To repel the rebel foe, From the wood, the field, the workshop, Came the glad response, “We go.” On, ye gallant sons Dirego! Help sustain our drooping flag; Meet the traitor at his threshold; Down his rebel ensign drag. On your arms our nation's fate hangs; Rally for its flag and laws; The God of Battles will go with you, In this glorious, holy cause. --N. Y. Hera
t parteth right and wrong. Then a red flash — the lightning across the darkness broke, And with a voice that shook the land, the guns of Sumter spoke: Wake! sons of heroes, wake! the age of heroes dawns again; Truth takes in hand her ancient sword, and calls her loyal men. Lo! brightly o'er the breaking day shines Freedom's holy star, Peace cannot cure the sickly time. All hail, the healer, War.! That call was heard by Plymouth rock; 'twas heard in Boston bay; Then up the piny streams of Maine sped on its ring: ing way; New Hampshire's rocks, Vermont's green hills, it kindled into flame; Rhode Island felt her mighty soul bursting her little frame: The Empire City started up, her golden fetters rent, And, meteor-like, across the North, the fiery message sent; Over the breezy prairie lands, by bluff and lake it ran, Till Kansas bent his arm, and laughed to find himself a man; Then on, by cabin and by camp, by stony wastes and sands, It ran exultant down the sea where the Golden City
