pping Rohr. On arriving at the ferry. Baylor and his men secreted themselves under the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad bridge, while the negro was sent forward to signal Rohr to come over with his boat, which he did readily. When he arrived on the Virginia side, young Baylor rushed from his concealment and demanded his surrender. Instead of complying with the demand, Rohr, who was armed, attempted resistance, when he was fired upon and killed by some one of the detachment. Upon the facts above narrated the Yankees have based an informal charge of murder and violation of a flag of truce, and refused to exchange Capt. Baylor, notwithstanding he has repeatedly demanded an investigation of the whole affair. Refusing to investigate the matter, they have, through sheer malignity, detained their captive for nearly six months in Fort Delaware the Confederate Government owes it to itself and the brave men who are imperiling their lives for its defence, to demand his immediate exchange.
