He was opposed to the resolves, and hoped they would be rejected. Mr. Fisk, of Shelburne, advocated the proposition, and would forward it with his hand and vote. Mr. Prentiss, of Marblehead, opposed the measure in a speech of considerable length, and asked if we would send commissioners to a convention of traitors? Let us rather send the sword. Mr. Slack, of Boston, spoke in opposition. He foresaw that the convention would ac

find on the Governor's files, in his own handwriting, dated Aug. 1:— In consequence of the request of the town of Marblehead, made by a legal town meeting, held yesterday,—a copy of the record which is handed me, attested by the town clerk,—I ae nomination of the other gentlemen who came to represent the town, Samuel Roads, Esq., additional recruiting agent for Marblehead. He will co-operate with the town's committee, and use his influence to forward the enlistment; and I ask the good people of Marblehead to support and help him with all their hearts and hands. As the town authorities throughout the State were authorized, under general orders, to recruit the quotas of their towns, we suspect that the people of the good town of MaMarblehead thought their selectmen were not as active in the discharge of this peculiar duty as they wished to have them, and therefore held a town meeting on the subject.

Major Blunt was further pleased to inform me that the new fort at Eastern Point, Gloucester, will be ready for a garrison in the bombproof quarters built by him, by the 15th of November. It has seven 32-pounder guns with casemate carriages. Fort Lee, at Salem, is almost finished. Four 8-inch Columbiads will be mounted there this month. Forts Pickering (Salem) and Sewell (Marblehead) will not be ready for their armament for several weeks. It is not likely that any thing heavier than 24 or 32-pounders can be got for these works. The quartermaster must provide quarters for the men. The battery at Long Point, Provincetown, will be finished by cold weather. It will be mounted with eight 32-pounders. The battery will be an open one, and the quartermaster must furnish quarters for the men. The works at Plymouth are just begun. The armament is unsettled, but proba
purchase or manufacture of ordnance, in the building or equipping iron-clad or other steamers, or the erection of iron-clad or other fortifications, or in such other measures as the public exigencies might require. The inhabitants of any town on the coast were further authorized, with the approval of the Governor and Council, to raise money, and expend it in defending their town against the public enemies of the United States. Under this act, fortifications were erected at Newburyport, Marblehead, Plymouth, Salem, New Bedford, and Gloucester. The forts in Boston Harbor were connected with each other and with the city by a magnetic telegraph; a complete and most ingenious system of harbor obstructions was devised for the harbor of Boston; and all the workings, drawings, and bills of materials prepared which would admit of the system being applied at a moment's warning. The great want, however, was still of the largest gun; and the result of all inquiries was, that no more could po
