--We have had the pleasure of an interview with this distinguished and estimable gentleman, and have been glad to find him more than hopeful with respect to the ultimate redemption of his down-trodden but gallant State from the grasp of the tyrannical and brutal faction which has unfortunately been able to bind her hand and foot.
, in fact, is enthusiastic in the prospect of an early uprising in our sister State, and is engaged in raising a brigade for immediate service of the most desperate kind.
It is clear our friends in Maryland
are utterly powerless in the hands of the Lincoln Government
, and cannot be expected to throw off the shackles with which her free sons have been bound, unless assisted with men and arms.
There are many noble hearts in Maryland
burning with ill- suppressed indignation, who wait impatiently for the hour when they can burst their bonds and overwhelm in complete ruin the despotic wretches who have dared to keep thus in subjection the free sons of America
May we not hope, indeed we are very sure, our Government and people will not be slow to furnish the needful encouragement towards the regeneration and freedom of our Maryland
