Prospect of a revolution in Maryland.

--A special dispatch from Washington to the New York Herald says:

‘ The efforts of the rebels to gather Maryland into the Secession fold have not been abandoned. It was noticed some weeks ago that a considerable rebel force had been concentrated in the upper part of Accomac county, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. It appears that there are about fifteen hundred or two thousand rebels there under arms. General Tilghman, of Talbot county, Maryland, who was deposed from his militia rank last spring by Governor Hicks, and subsequently restored by the State Legislature, is organizing the disunionists in the lower counties of Maryland. He is about to proceed to Accomac, take command of the Virginia forces there, and march them up into the middle of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, as the nucleus for the formation of a rebel army there, which shall, if it can do nothing else, control the elections in the fall so as to secure a disunion majority in the Legislature, and enable the Secessionists to pass a Secession Ordinance, or perhaps more immediately enforce an Ordinance of Secession that may be passed by the present Legislature at its adjourned session.

’ The Late Battle in Missouri--The people in the North are beginning to open their eyes. The New York Post has the following:

‘ But a victory which costs such a man and such a General as Lyon, and is followed by a retreat, and then a second retreat, belongs decidedly to that class of which a renowned General said that "a few more such victories would ruin him."
