The New York Seventh Regiment.
--The following is from the Baltimore Sun, of Monday:
One of the members of the New York Seventh Regiment reached this city on Saturday afternoon, en route for his home.
He stated that when they offered their services to the Government
, it was for the defence of the Capital
, and not to engage in a warfare against a State or States.
Fifty of the members refused to take the oath after reaching Washington
, and the remainder took it conditionally that they were not to be called on to go out of the District of Columbia.
The gentleman who came to this city says that the feelings of the regiment towards the people of Baltimore
are of the kindliest character, and that they could not be induced to invade the soil of Maryland
, or of the South
, for a hostile purpose.
Several of the members of the regiment are natives of Baltimore
, and the respect of the whole body for Baltimore
is very strong.
