Communication between Baltimore and Washington stopped. --By information received here this afternoon by way of the flag-of truce steamer from Old Point, we learn that an order has been issued by the Federal authorities, that all communication is to be stopped between Washington and Baltimore city for thirty days. We are unable to conjecture the cause of this movement of cutting off communication between those two cities, unless it is that they have some important movement in contemplation, and think by resorting to this means they will keep the South in ignorance of it. If so, they are calculating without their host. In the meantime, we had best prepare for an attack on Norfolk. Stand to your guns, and be sure you have plenty of ammunition on hand, and the right kind of guns to stand to. Since the above writing, it has occurred to us that this order has been issued in order to give them an opportunity to make some changes and alterations in the fortifications aro
restraining the defendant from mining and sending coal to market. The bill of complaint of the plaintiff also prays the court to set aside and vacate certain deeds of conveyance of a large tract of land made by the Cumberland Coal and Iron Company to Sherman and Dean, and by them conveyed to the Hoffman Company, upon the grounds of alleged fraud, and for other reasons. The counsel in the case are George W. Dobbin, of Baltimore, and G. A. Thrusion for plaintiff, and Reverdy Johnson, of Baltimore city, Stroughton, of New York, Geo. A Pearre and Thomas Devermon for defendant. This is one of the ablest legal discussions that ever took place in that county, and has engaged the attention of some of the first lawyers in the country. It is not yet finished. Diphtheria is prevailing to alarming extent in the Grantsville region. In many instances whole families have been prostrated. Many deaths have occurred particularly among the children, but the epidemic attacks indiscriminately b

hat there has been no relaxation of vigilance, on the part of the autocrat or his premier, towards the people of Maryland. Nor does it matter whether or not the result of the late election is a fair indication of the popular will. We may and do think the contrary, but the Government has accepted it as such, and should have so based its subsequent action. It claims that the election was perfectly fair, you it reposes no confidence in the loyalty of the people. The Federal force in Baltimore city and else where in the State, has not been diminished, nor have arrests for opinion's sake been less frequent or of a less aggravated and unscrupulous character. The soil of St. Mary's, heretofore unpolluted by the tread of the mercenary and the detective — except in instances where charges have been trumped up of a treasonable character — has of late been invaded, and her citizens dragged from their homes, without a moment's warning, or even the mere formula of a trial, that they may an

it became evident that her effort to resist invasion, however gallant and determined, would have resulted in certain defeat, and the consequent destruction of Baltimore city, which contains two-fifths of her whole population, and nearly all of her commercial capital and enterprise. Baltimore then had less than thirty-five hunmost rampart of the young republic. Maryland and Virginia together possess the Chesapeake and Potomac. They jointly hold the great railroad which unites Baltimore city to Wheeling and Parkesburg. They are the proprietors of the wealth of the Alleghanies; the boundless coal-fields; the stupendous ship timber; the inexhaustib!" Maryland is indispensable to Virginia in many ways. Without the Eastern Shore of Maryland, how would you hold the Eastern Shore of Virginia? Without Baltimore city and its great railroad, how can you make it the interest of Western Virginia to shake off the foul embrace of the invader? That public work is essential to t

raised in the city, of Baltimore. Early in life he displayed great natural ability, and availing himself of the limited resources before him, he immediately upon entering upon the practice of the law gained reputation and a lucrative practice. Shortly after, he was appointed Secretary of State by Governor Philip Frank. Thomas, and he immediately took a prominent position in the State Councils. When twenty- five years of age he was appointed one of the judges for the Circuit Ceurt for Baltimore city and county amidst the almost universal protest of the people, on account of his youth and inexperience. These complaints were soon silenced, and on the bench, illuminated by the wisdom of Purtiance, Price, and other eminent jurists, the young judge, by the clearness of his decisions, by the dignity and elegance of his demeanor, and the mingling of true justice with refined mercy, soon became the prime jurist over all his compeers and the pride and honer of his native city.

Hustings Court. --The cases of the Commonwealth against E. Simon, (two,) D. J. Saunders, T. Lawson, Charles R. Bricken, A. P. Brown, (two,) and N. B. Hill, (two,) indictments for issuing small notes, were called yesterday, and the defendants failed to appear. The Court then gave judgment against the defendant in each case, for a fine of $10 and the costs of prosecution. William Burns, (of Baltimore city,) indicted for exhibiting a faro bank, was arraigned for trial, and pleaded not guilty. The following jury was sworn in the case; John B. Glazebrook, John T. Sublett, Lewis B. Thomas, Robert P. Davis, David E. Lacy, David N. Jones, Moses Millhiser, E. L. Tompkins, William A. Wyatt, William P. Regland, William Nott, and Jacob Woodson. The testimony showed some discrepancies which surprised those who heard the preliminary examination before the Mayor, and the jury rendered a verdict of "not guilty" without leaving their seats. Brigadier-General Wigfall, or Texas, testified
les. The announcement to the troops by either Johnston or Beauregard, that active operations were about to be commenced, would, like magic, out down our lists of sick, and infuse fresh vigor into the frames of those who have just emerged from the hospitals. But this announcement, from present appearances, is far in the distance. Once in a while Beauregard tosses a hope to us. Not long since he told the Marylanders that he intended, with his own hands, to plant the battle flag of their regiment upon the Battle monument in Baltimore city. His promise leaped like wild fire throughout the army; from lip to lip his words were passed, and each heart was aflame with enthusiasm. It has passed now. The battle flag still remains at Camp Cheanpeake with the exiles, and Beauregard is no nearer the city of Baltimore than when he tittered those prectous words of promise. I do not question the of our much-loved General. Far from it. He may know of things of which we do not even dream, and

Of these 13,344 volunteers have already been furnished, leaving 6,00 to be raised by draft. Baltimore city is to furnish only 46 men by draft, having been credited with 5897 volunteers.

Upon entering, the first exclamation was, "This is a d — d dark hole," Being urged by his comrade to proceed, he did so, and went into the water a foot deep which caused him to exclaim. "By g — d, here's water" Being again urged forward, the next stop soused him into the cooling element up to his wallet. This was rather more than he had bargained for, and here the search terminated. After remaining in his hiding place for several hours, the reverend gentleman emerged, and is now safely on his way to Bixis.
