The Revolution in Maryland. military preparations — Incidents — the Maryland Legislature, &c., &c. From the Baltimore Sun, of Friday last, we copy the following: The city yesterday. Early yesterday morning the people gathered in the streets, and after satisfying themselves that there was no probability of and mails. Several of the passengers left the train at the point of interruption, and would attempt to reach Washington by some means. Arrest of citizens of Maryland. Yesterday three respectable residents at the Annapolis Junction, Messrs. Robert Bruce, Benjamin Biggs and Jeremiah Kuen, were arrested and placed under guarup and carried entirely off. Machinists and workmen also accompany them. A military depot will probably be established at the Junction. Preparations in Maryland. The citizens of the Eastern Shore are apprehensive that they will be subject to marauding expeditions from fanatics of the North, and are therefore wisely t

Alexandria, April 28. --Four United States vessels--two war steamers and two transports — with Northern troops, passed up the Potomac this morning. Gov. Hicks, of Maryland, has issued a proclamation recommending that the State occupy a neutral position. The steamer Adelaide, of the Norfolk line, was fired at by the Harriet Lane, last Friday night, off Rappahannock river, in Chesapeake Bay, and boarded, but allowed to proceed. Citizens are still compelled to leave Washington, for sympathy with the South. A large quantity of shell has been landed at Fort Washington, by the Federal Government. Two men, one from South Carolina and one from Washington, have been confined as prisoners in the Capitol, for being secessionists. The New York Seventh Regiment dec
The Parsonage attached to the Brick Church, Queen Anne Parish, about five miles from Marlboro', Md., was totally destroyed by fire on Friday last, together with the furniture, clothing, &c., of the Rector, the Rev. Mr. Chesley. Lieut. Jennifer, of Maryland, lately in command of the Carlisle Barracks, has been arrested by order of Gov. Curtin, charged with imparting information to the officers of the South. This has been done because of his desire to resign, probably. A dispatch received at New Orleans on the 20th inst., from the Hon C. G. Memminger, ordered the close of the $15,000,000 loan of the Confederate States, the entire amount having been subscribed for. Joseph Henry, a promising little son of Mr. John Diller, living near Taylor's Springs, Rockingham county, Va., was accidentally killed on Friday morning week, by a tree falling upon him. The barque Chase, cleared from Baltimore for Montevideo, with a cargo of flour, is reported to have been seized by
s against the Innards of Northern troops, have had to resort to the manufacture and use of pikes, because of the deficiency of muskets — and while arms are needed by the militia, and even volunteer companies, in many exposed counties of Virginia, it is said that there are 50,000 muskets in the arsenals of the State, in Richmond and Lexington, which had been conditionally sold by our Government for $1.50 each, but the sale not made final, nor the arms delivered. Why not supply these arms to Maryland? It is true, that these are flint-lock muskets, of old construction, and therefore of very inferior value to the most improved modern arms. But they were deemed, throughout the war of 1812, good arms of that time, and certainly would be a great acquisition wherever all fire arms are very scarce, and where the arming of troops is greatly needed. The writer of this piece bore and used one of these muskets, as a private volunteer, through six months service near Norfolk in the early part of
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.a Voices from Tennessee. Morristown, Tenn., April 25th, 1861. Tennessee is all right now, and will respond to the call for troops and money with a liberal heart and hand, and will sustain Virginia and Maryland in the noble stand they have taken to keep back and drive out the abolition hordes new striving to overrun this fair land, and the few traitors among us that have held high office at the hands of the people will reap their just reward at the hands of an outraged people.

Inhuman Murder. --John Wilkins, late a seaman on board of Lincoln's ship Cumberland, asserts, with the ability to prove it, that Lieut. Selfridge, who visited our city under a flag of truce on Saturday last, deliberately cut down and instantly killed a man named Nathaniel F. Wolfe, of Maryland, a seaman on board said ship, for refusing to set fire to the ship United States at Gosport.--Norfolk Day Book.
Offer of troops to Virginia --J C. Lumsien, Esq., a member of the Richland (S. C.) Rangers, is at present in Richmond, to offer the services of his company to the commander in-chief of the Virginia forces, to aid in protecting the border States of Virginia and Maryland. The Rangers are composed of icked men, numbering 200, and are in perfect drill and condition for fighting. They are thoroughly armed and equipped, and splendidly mounted, and in case their services are accepted, would be of incalculable benefit in the defence of our State. We hope their offer will be readily and heartily accepted, and that we may soon have the gratification of seeing them in our midst.
