Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
sentiment in Maryland.

Marlboro', Prince George Co., Md., December 26th, 1860.
After being in Washington for some time, and witnessing the boldness of the Black Republican residents there, I was exceedingly surprised, on my arrival here, to find the people so loyal to the South. Marlborough is a growing village, about 20 miles east of Washington. Hence, I expected that a large portion of the people, at least, would have their sympathies with the General Government; but all side with the South, and Gov. Hicks' letter to the Commissioner of Mississippi does not give general satisfaction, as the people, not only here, but all over the State, desire a call for the assembling at once of the Legislature. Meetings are being held throughout the State, all passing resolutions asking the Governor to convene the Legislature.

There is no news of interest now, but when anything of interest to the public transpires, you may expect to hear from me again. J.W.
