troops by companies and regiments from the South. So far, Gen. Lee gives out that he acts only to protect Virginia from defence, and nothing more. How happens it, then, that he has allowed the Harper's Ferry Secession troops to cross over into Maryland? Jefferson Davis, besides, is the superior officer in command. The Maryland Secessionists are understood to have a hand in these forward movements. G. A. Scott will not allow any fortifications to go up on the Virginia shore, in the vicinity of the city or on the Potomac. The Secession forces at the Point of Rocks are reported as mainly Maryland Secessionists. As the seceders have 9 howitzers and 8 thirty-one pounders on the line of the railroad, the Ringgold battery is to-day put up at the Relay. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad have tendered their road to the Government, as a military highway, and Gen. Scott will accept it, when needed. An incident to-day confirms me that no aggression is meant upon the rebellious S
e work in less than three months, was certainly a blunder for which General Scott may blush. The restless temper of Maryland was another circumstance left out of consideration in the first call for troops. It is found that with all the aid of Hthat State, it requires half the seventy-five thousand men first demanded to hold Washington in security, and to overawe Maryland. Add to this fact the embarrassment which the three months term of service stipulated for in the beginning has occasionGeneral to attempt anything but feints with a smaller force. There are not more than half that number in Washington and Maryland as yet; and many of the troops now there are three months men. He will need to have full ninety thousand men for invasioouthern. The question will be two-sided. It will not be alone whether Virginia shall be subjugated; but, also, whether Maryland shall be liberated? That alternative will depend upon the question whether Scott is ahead, or Davis, in their military
of the State, and her utter severance from the Northern despotism which now threatens her with special vengeance? --The moral effect of a vote, as nearly unanimous as possible, will be inspiriting. Along the Ohio border there is a horde of cringing poltroons who will vote for submission; and every man who so votes will, by the very act, do his utmost to degrade and dishonor Virginia. Every such voter proclaims his preference that Virginia should be held as a conquered province, like Maryland; that she should be used by the Federal forces as a point d'appui for offensive operations against her sister States of the South; that she should become the just scorn of the Confederate States whose troops are thronging to her defence; that she shall again place herself beneath the banner — once loved and gloried in — but rejected when it became the emblem of oppression; and not only so, but every voter against secession announces his willingness, not only to force the State beneath the r
1. The so-called Union meeting, which no doubt the American represented as being most enthusiastic, was but an outburst of anger from the Yankee settlers of Maryland, who wish to place the sentiment of native Mary landers on the side of the North (Union). Yesterday evening the Michigan troops debarked from the depot at Bolton, part marching and part riding to the depot in freight cars. I noticed many of those marching arm in arm with great burly negroes. The old Maryland blood boiled in my veins at this spectacle, but I hope when these ebony idols, if they ever should, (which is doubtful,) cross over to Virginia, each will be presented with a hn F. Butler, alias Strychnine Butler, has left us. "We hie less most deeply feel, &c." He used to ride up the streets to his quarters (the Gilmore House,) between a file of soldiers, a la Lonis Napoleon; but this tyranny over Maryland cannot be borne much longer, while Virginians have their eyes open.
