Societies, orations, songs, and dinner-tables, there rises a perpetual anthem of "The Pilgrims landing at Plymouth, fugitives escaping from persecution!" The real reason of the Pilgrimage of the Puritans was their love of gain and power.--In America, as in England, under Cromwell, they were the most tedious of tyrants and persecutors. Having secured their charter, they established a spiritual despotism in America, such as was never surpassed in the annals of High Commissioners or Star Chambers. In the volume before us are examples innumerable of the manner in which they arrested, tried, condemned, fined, imprisoned, fettered, branded, lashed, maimed, cursed, banished, hung, and left naked and unburied their brethren, in a common Christianity. They re-enacted what Bancroft calls "the worst statute in the English code, that which did but enforce attendance upon the parish church," and with military and civil power dragged men whom they had voted hereties to hear those whom they h
The Maryland State Convention. --The State Convention called by the people of Maryland, met in Baltimore on Monday. The usual preliminary business was transacted. Judge Chambers, who was chosen President, said on taking the chair, that-- The object in calling the Convention had been utterly misconceived, and there had been intemperate expressions which should not have been indulged in; for while we are honest in purpose, we should be willing to grant honesty of purpose to all. When the meetings the held one body will be termed abolitionists, and the other body will be called secessionists. Some had ascribed secession purposes to this Convention, but no greater mistake could have been made or entertained; and if any member had assisted in placing him in the chair with that view, he did not take it as a compliment. He deemed secession the greatest curse that could come upon the country. He was for the Union as the greatest blessing — for the Union so long as it could be h
seen;" and this time the reprimand came from a man at least five years my junior, for I had recognized an old school-fellow who had been my fag. However, I was too sleepy to suffer much from shame or indignation, so I paid one more visit to my sentries, and threw myself on the truckle-bed, where I slept hard until roused in the morning by an orderly who had come for my report. Alas, alas! in knocking over the table the night before, I had spilt the ink all over that unhappy document, and there was no time to copy it! It was hurried away, like poor Hamlet's father, with all its blots upon it, and was consequently doomed, like that famous ghost, to wander about and haunt me; for, as it turned out, I had by no means seen the last of that orderly, who kept bringing me curt messages and rejected manuscripts all day.--However, he went off for the time, and shortly afterwards the new guard arrived, and soon I was wending my happy way to barracks and to breakfast.--Chambers' Journal.
Maryland State Convention. --The Maryland "State Conference Convention" re-assembled at Baltimore Tuesday morning, in pursuance of adjournment from the 20th ult. Delegations were present from all the counties except Frederick, Talbot, Caroline, Prince George's and Worcester. Judge Chambers, on taking the Chair, made a statement that he had been informed before leaving home that Governor Hicks had determined to call a Convention, or submit the question of a Convention to a vote of the people, but since arriving here he had been informed by parties who had conferred with the Governor as late as Saturday morning last, that he had no intention at present of taking any such action. The session was spent in discussion, and in the reception of various resolutions, which were referred to a committee.

Deeming that the present condition of public affairs presents an extraordinary occasion, I do hereby, in virtue of the power in me vested by the Constitution, convene both Houses of Congress --Senators and Representatives are therefore summoned to assemble at their respective Chambers, at twelve o'clock, noon, on Thursday, the 4th day of July next, then and there, as in their wisdom, the public safety and interest may seem to demand. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

fficers and gentlemen, but whose real object, it now appears, was to concert a plan for the reinforcement of the fort.--The Administration here, knowing it was the intention of the Black Republicans to reinforce and provision it, could pursue no other course than the one so nobly resolved on.--The Secretary of War, by and with the advice of the President and Cabinet, gave the order to the gallant and brave Beauregard, and immediately the order was executed — the work accomplished. Paymaster Chambers arrived in this city on Saturday last, from Pensacola, and says Fort Pickens was certainly reinforced, by the addition of a large body of men, on Friday night. Between six and seven thousand men now surround the fortification, and all eyes are watching, with painful interest, for the bloody beginning. The ladies of Pensacola (God bless 'em) were engaged all day yesterday (Sunday) in making bags for sand, to afford protection to our brave men, many of whom, I fear, will be made to
