The conduct of the Eighth Massachusetts Regiment at Annapolis, Md., is deserving of the greatest praise. When Gen. Butler asked if any of them could sail the Constitution, fifty-four men stepped from the ranks, one of whom was the son of the man who built her! A similar incident occurred when the General called for mechanics to put the dislocated engine together. One stalwart Yankee stepped from the ranks, and said, Well, General, I rather think I can — I made that engine; and in two hours the engine was at work drawing trains with the troops towards Washington. The efficiency of the stalwart six-footers with which the regiment abounds, was a most fortunate thing for the vast body of troops concentrating there.--N. Y. Times, April 27.
Wm. B. Dobbin, of the Fifty-third Regiment of Maryland, arrived here last night from Baltimore, and says that no report had reached here with regard to the rumored slaughter of the Seventh Regiment at Annapolis.--N. Y. Times, April 27.
When Gen. Benjamin F. Butler, in command of the Massachusetts regiment, landed at Annapolis, Md., some of the authorities protested against the passage of Massachusetts troops over Maryland soil; when he replied: Sir, we came here not as citizens of Massachusetts, but as citizens of and soldiers of the United States, with no intention to invade any State, but to protect the capital of our common country from invasion. We shall give no cause of offence; but there must be no fugitive shots or stray bricks on the way. --N. Y. Commercial Advertiser, April 26.
formation of the feeling prevalent there. He represents it as a perfect reign of terror, and an excitement that he never saw paralleled. The troops in the city, he thinks a fine, hardy body of men, but ignorant beyond belief. It is upon the ignorance of these men that the leaders play. Some of the statements he heard made, would hardly be credited as the assertions of sane men. He listened to one man who publicly stated that the Seventh Regiment had been cut to pieces in the streets of Annapolis, and that he himself saw more than 100 of their dead bodies lying in the streets of that city. Another man he heard assure the crowd that the Massachusetts vagabonds (her glorious volunteers) had been quartered in the Capitol at Washington, and had amused themselves by running their bayonets through the pictures which adorned it, and that the rich hangings of the different rooms have been pulled down and made into blankets and wrappers for the use of the troops. Another man, who was or
Annapolis, Md., April 28.--To give you an example of the punishment traitors receive, we can see from where I am writing, about two miles from shore, on the yard-arm of the U. S. Brig Caledonia, two men hanging--one for smuggling provisions and powder to the rebels at Charleston, the other for piloting the Seventh Regiment on donia, two men hanging--one for smuggling provisions and powder to the rebels at Charleston, the other for piloting the Seventh Regiment on the Chesapeake bar, with the intention that the Baltimoreans might get possession of Annapolis before the Seventh could land. --Ex. from a Letter, date Annapolis, in N.

Annapolis, Md., April 25.--The general suspension of business during the past few days, anal the hopelessness of the adoption of peace measures, have caused a neglect on the part of our citizens to give proper attention to their pecuniary engagements, and the notaries have had quite a harvest in the way of protests. They have been the busiest of our population, and, what is unusual, complain of having too much to do. The citizens of Annapolis have no occasion of complaint in reference toAnnapolis have no occasion of complaint in reference to the conduct of the Federal troops, every proceeding being conducted in the most orderly manner. In no instance have the rights of any one been interfered with to their detriment. In cases where it was necessary to take possession of property for the use of the Government, the most ample compensation was allowed, and the owners of property were required to assess its valuation. A citizen who was the owner of four horses and carts was called upon to dispose of them for the transportation of b
April 23.--Massachusetts and Rhode Island have won the praise and the blessing of all men. The sons of Massachusetts lay dead in the streets of Baltimore on the anniversary of the battle of Lexington, before a single regiment of New York had crossed the border between the slave and the free States. Soldiers of Massachusetts have made their way to Havre de Grace, seized a steamboat, reached Annapolis, and taken a position by which they could keep open a road to Washington, before a single troop of New York soldiers had found a passage into the enemy's country. Troops from Massachusetts and Rhode Island have been sent by sea, and were thrown into Fort Monroe, commanding Norfolk, while the authorities at Albany were debating upon the proper official steps to be taken in regard to the President's Proclamation. God save the Commonwealth of Massachusetts! --the State that compromise was to leave out of the new Confederacy I and blessings be upon the State of Roger Williams, so confid
Massachusetts was the first to start a regiment for Washington; Massachusetts blood was the first shed in the war; a Massachusetts regiment was the first to reinforce Fort Monroe; the first to open a pathway from Annapolis to Washington; the first to reach the capital; and is the first to invade Virginia! God bless the Commonwealth of Massachusetts! --Albany Evening Journal, May 7.
Col. Pinckney, of the Sixth Regiment of New York, on setting out from Annapolis to Washington, made a stirring address to his men:--If any of you falter, said the Colonel, you will be instantly shot down; and if I falter, I hope you will put a thousand bullets through my heart at once. Every officer and soldier responded with a most enthusiastic Aye to these remarks, which were delivered in a calm, inflexible, and determined way. Col. Pinckney evidently meant all he said, and at each telling-point every soldier's heart throbbed audibly beneath his cross-belts.--Independent, May 2.
h important despatches from Lieut.-Gen. Scott to Brigadier-General Butler, left Washington for Annapolis in company with Major Welsh, Col. Lander, and Mr. Van Valkenburgh. They took separate seats ildly, I am no spy, sir, but a messenger from the War Department at Washington to the troops at Annapolis. The lawyer then gave a signal, upon which the militia company marched over to the House. Thighted, but the vehicle was scarcely out of sight before he faced about and started again for Annapolis. Falling in with a countryman, he offered the man $1 for a lift, which was accepted. Being w, ordered Mr. Patton to hold on. Mr. Patton said his name was Moore, and that he was going to Annapolis to collect some money which was owing him; but the fellow came to the conclusion that he was aund his companions, who had also been arrested, and sent back. Determining to start again for Annapolis, he disguised himself completely, and in company with a friend, who had a fast team, set out o
