Affairs in Philadelphia.

Deputy Marshal Jenkins on Friday seized 250 barrels of flour, at the Baltimore depot intended for Baltimore; and on Saturday two kegs of powder and six revolvers were found among the effects of a citizen of Cecil county, Md., which were overhauled at the Broad and Prime street depot.

Captain Albert L. Magilton, late of the United States Army, has accepted the command of a volunteer regiment of Philadelphia, which is nearly full and ready for service. Captain Magilton served in the 4th artillery, United States Army, for a number of years.

On Saturday evening a meeting of the natives of Maryland residing in Philadelphia was held at the American Hotel, for the purpose of devising some means for the support of the exiles from Baltimore.

On the same evening speeches were made by the "exiles" from Baltimore at the Continental Hotel, J. B. Shoemaker, Edward Rawlings and T. Joseph Rogers.
