Hard Times in Baltimore.

--The Baltimore Sun publishes a column of letters from firms in that city, showing that business there is nearly ruined, and that somebody ‘"is hurt."’ One clothing firm, which gave work last March to about 1,200 persons, now employs 200; another, in the same business, employs 410, where last year it employed 1,100. Speaking of business prospects, the Sun says:

‘ Ordinarily, at this season of the year, the revival of business imparts vivacity to all the departments of active life, but the spring opens with us without any of the customary evidences of confidence and activity; and idleness and destitution are entailed upon many who have looked with kindling hope to this period. It the current state of public and business affairs continues, the suffering of the present day is but the beginning of further and more general distress.
