We have received, through the politeness of Dr. King
, who has just gotten through from Washington
, a copy of the St. Mary
published at Leonardtown, Md.
This paper, which has always been very bold in its utterances against the Lincoln
despotism, in concluding a sarcastic article on the ‘"victories"’ of the Federal
army, says: ‘"Notwithstanding all these splendid victories and this unheard-of gallantry, the invincible Federal forces who were once at Warrenton
are now behind the fortifications upon Arlington Heights
."’ In noticing the entrance of our troops into Maryland
, it says that many strong Unionists
showed them every attention, selling them food, clothing, and articles of luxury, for United States
or Confederate money.
says that in Washington
the Secessionists were delighted at the disasters to the Federal
army, but the Unionists were consoling themselves that the Confederate army was now in a position where the ‘"back- bone of the rebellion can be broken."’
