the last requisition on Governor Curtin. The regimental colors were presented by Governor Curtin. The Second Buffalo regiment, under command of Colonel D. D. Bidwell, left for New York.

ture, and at this place, Marshal Kane appears for the first time in the history of that eventful day. He was well known to the secessionists, and his presence soon restored order, when the fugitive soldiers returned to the cars, and the Pennsylvanians were all sent back to Philadelphia. After their departure, the mob proceeded to barricade the Pratt Street Bridge, and to break open the store of Henry Meyer, from which they carried off a large number of guns and pistols. At that moment General Egerton appeared in full uniform, imploring them to cease rioting. He assured them that no foreign troops were in the city, and that Governor Hicks had declared that no more should pass through it. Files of the Baltimore journals from the 20th to the 23d of April. Letter of Captain Follansbee to the Lowell Courier. Colonel Jones's official report to General Butler. Verbal statements to the author by citizens of Baltimore.

can use this statement as you think best. I could make it more full if you wish it. I could allude to the liability of every one in Baltimore, on the 19th, confused by the excitement, to be mistaken. Indeed I remember an instance of this. General Egerton was ordered by you to drive back the mob who were pressing upon the Pennsylvania troops. He drove back the troops. I heard you give the order to Egerton, and I heard him report to you. You disapproved of his act, and he pleaded misapprehensEgerton, and I heard him report to you. You disapproved of his act, and he pleaded misapprehension of your order. I remain, sir, respectfully, yours, &c., R. S. Mercer, Col. Third Regiment, M. C. I had not retired to my bed when the scuttling of the ferry boat was proposed to me. It was not proposed by men in whom I had no confidence. Highly respectable gentlemen urged it as the easiest and most lawful means of effecting the desired object. Yet I unhesitatingly refused my consent to the step. But the people of Maryland are asked to believe that, after this, in the still watche

Another report is that Miss Kyle slipped one hundred dollars in gold in her brother's mouth, besides greenbacks in his hands, despite the vigilance of the guard and surgeon. I know Major Kyle has plenty of money, and bribes the guards to bring him articles, carry out letters, etc. He was one of the rioters, 19th of April, 1861, who attempted to drive back the Federal troops passing through Baltimore to Washington and the front. Mrs. Robert Carr, Mrs. P. H. Sullivan, Mrs. J. M. Coulter, Mrs. Egerton, the Misses Jamison, and other noble Baltimore ladies, send choice fresh vegetables, milk, clothing, etc., to our hospital, and while all are received, none of them are appropriated as intended by the generous, warm-hearted donors. I suppose the greedy Yankees eat the fruit and vegetables, and wear or sell the clothing sent to the hungry and ragged Rebels. At any rate, they are confiscated. The guards have orders to shoot any prisoner who puts his head out of a window. Two convalescen

The following is the correspondence of the authorities with the railroad officials and President Lincoln, on the subject of stopping the passage of troops: Mayor's office, city Hall, Baltimore, April 19, 1861.

e following: The city wears its usual martial appearance this morning, but events within the city limits are not exciting. The concentration of Northern troops at Perrysville, on the Susquehanna, and at Annapolis, has excited vigilant surveillance in those directions. Two thousand stand of approved arms reached the Camden Station at 8 o'clock this morning, from Harper's Ferry, sent by the Virginia authorities, to be used in the defence of Baltimore. The arms were received by Gen. Egerton, of the Fifty-third Regiment, who superintended their removal to the Maryland Institute, the headquarters of the regiment. Speaking of the Yankee troops who returned from Cockeysville, the Sun says: Our informant reports the condition of the troops as most deplorable. He passed freely among them as they lay sleeping in the cars and on the ground, with their muskets hanging out of the car windows, and "lying around loose." A force of two hundred men could have captured all thei

It is feared that amputation will be necessary. Yesterday morning between 200 and 300 of our most respectable colored residents made a tender of their services to the city authorities. The Mayor thanked them for their offer, and informed them that their services will be called for if they can be made in any way available. Brigadier Gen. Egerton has received by letters and personal applications, offers of regular military organizations from almost every county in the State--the companies being fully uniformed and equipped, and ready for service. At the works of the Messrs. Winans their entire force is engaged in the making of pikes, and in casting balls of every description, for cannon, the steam gun, rifles, muskets, &c., which they are turning out very rapidly.
