Mysterious disappearance of a Virginian

--Schooners Ashore--The Inauguration of the Governor Elect of Maryland to take Place on the 10th of January.


Baltimore, December 29.
--Joseph P. Bledsoe, a merchant of Staunton, Virginia, stopped at the Maltby House, on Pratt street, on the 13th instant, with a large amount of money about him, intending to purchase goods. He suddenly and mysteriously disappeared on the same night, and has not since been heard of.--It is generally believed that there has been some foul play, resulting in murder and robbery. His partner (C. B. Wood) is here, anxiously looking after him.

During the recent heavy fog on the Chesapeake Bay several schooners went ashore and were lost, with valuable cargoes.

Hon. Thomas Swann, Governor elect, will be inaugurated on the 10th of January. A grand time is anticipated at Annapolis. His address is anxiously anticipated.
