Wilson, of Massachusetts.

--This vulgar Senatorial bully has raised a regiment in Massachusetts, and delivered a glorification speech upon the occasion of a flag presentation, in which he makes an allusion to the assault on a Massachusetts regiment in Baltimore on the 19th of April, showing the mean revenge for that outbreak which still lurks in the Yankee heart, and which no doubt has prompted the indignities which noble Maryland has since suffered. Wilson says in his speech; ‘"Some of the men in my command were born on Massachusetts soil, and have the blood of the Puritans in their veins. Many of them were born in the Green Isle of the Sea."’ ‘"Some"’ Yankees and ‘"many"’ foreigners fighting Northern battles, is the description of the whole army, as well as Wilson's regiment. They hate us with diabolical malignity, but are too cowardly to fight their own battles. As to Wilson, the vaporing braggart, he made such excellent time at Bull Run that we don't wonder he has been chosen to lead a regiment in the way the Yankee regiments usually go.
