Among the Yankees
recently captured by Stonewall Jackson
, were a band of out-throats, numbering some 1,000 men, calling themselves the ‘"1st Maryland Regiment."’ No doubt a considerable number of them were the debris of the purlieus of Baltimore
and other cities, who wanted no better chance to practice their peculiar vocations than was afforded by joining Old Abe's invading force.
It is some consolation to know that amongst those who had the pleasure of taking them in custody was the realtrue 1st Maryland regiment, gallant fellows who have done and will be good service in behalf of Southern independence.
The abolition 1st Maryland regiment has been confided to their charge, and they will watch the scoundrels well, we'll warrant.
