The Baltimore American
states that Mr. Kennedy
of the Police of New York city, candidly confesses that his detectives have been employed in Baltimore
and other Cities further South, ferreting out secret organizations, attending the meetings of Southern volunteers, &c., to ascertain if any plot really existed for the assassination of the President
He confesses his disbelief of any such plot.

We trust our own police will be required to keep a good look out for these myrmidons of Lincoln
, who have had the audacity already to establish a system of espionage on Southern soil, and for any willing instruments of theirs who may still be found here, ready to give aid and comfort to any scheme, however infernal, of the Helper
