Massachusetts blood has consecrated the streets of Baltimore, which are now too sacred to be trodden by slaves.—When the South cannonaded Sumter, the bones of Adams rattled in his coffin; and we might have heard him from his granite grave in Quincy say, Seize the thunderbolt, and annihilate what has troubled you for sixty years. —There are four sections of people in this struggle: First, the ordinary massesllen will return to us. I am overwhelmed with surprise, that a peaceful march of American citizens over the highway, to the defence of our common capital, should be deemed aggressive to Baltimoreans.
