The Maryland press.

We have received, through the politeness of Dr. King, who has just gotten through from Washington, a copy of the St. Mary's Beacon, 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. Dr. King 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."’
