But the best of all is, that Maryland--gallant little Maryland--right under the guns of Lincoln, and the threats of Blair, to make it a Free State, if the blood of the last white man has to be shed in accomplishing it--has resolved, to a man, to stand by the South! She will be arrayed against Abolitiondom, and cling to the South: and if she has not delegates with us now, she is in open defiance of Lincoln and his Government, and will soon be with us, even by revolution.

I therefore solicited an interview with Brigadier-General Lyon, commanding the Federal army in Missouri. It was granted on the 11th, and waiving all questions of personal and official dignity, I went to St. Louis accompanied by Brigadier-General Price. We had an interview on the 11th inst., with General Lyon and F. P. Blair, Jr., at which I submitted to them these propositions: That I would disband the State Guard, and break up its organization. That I would disarm all the companies that had been ordered out by the State. That I would pledge myself not to attempt to organize the militia under the military bill. That no arms or munitions of war should be brought into the State. That I would protect all citizens equally in all their rights, regardless of their political opinions. That I would re
