--It is a remarkable coincidence (says the Charleston Courier) that the first blood shed in the revolutionary war, between the colonies and Great Britain, was at the village of Lexington, on the 19th of April, 1775, and the first blood shed in the revolution between the North and the South, occurred in the city of Baltimore, on the 19th of April, 1861--just eighty-six years after.
