Confidence in Confederate bonds.
In the darkest hours of our struggle for Southern independence, there has been no indication of despondency on the part of the loyal citizens of Maryland
Under all circumstances they have maintained their devotion to the interests of the South
, and illustrated their confidence in our ultimate success in the most unmistakable manner.--A few days ago a gentleman arrived in this city from Baltimore
with $75,000 in Maryland
funds, which he brought over to invest in Confederate bonds.
We have heard of other instances where smaller amounts have been similarly invested.--This is one of the truest indications of the sentiment of the people, as well as the confidence they feel of final recognition and independence of the Confederacy
