following last evening from our Annapolis correspondent: Annapolis,April 21. The steamer Maryland arrived here this morning, having on board Col. Butler and eight hundred Massachusetts troops, en route for Washington. The steamer is now lying alongside of the U. S. Ship Constitution, at the Naval Academy, and all the gates leading from the city to the yard are locked, and additional watchmen guarding the entrances. The Constitution will convey the troops to Washington. Annapolis Telegraph Office,April 21, 10½ o'clock. The telegraph office at the Annapolis junction has been taken possession of by the Government, and the above dispatch is sent by pony express. Another steamer with troops is now coming in the harbor. We learn that Governor Hicks sent to Colonel Butler a protest against the landing of troops at Annapolis. He accordingly proceeded to the Naval Academy, and landed his men there, over which the Federal Government has exclusive jurisdiction.
The news from Baltimore. The last news from Baltimore indicates that the Black Republican Governor, Hicks, Winter Davis, and Brown, are demoralizing the Southern movement in Maryland. There ought to be an advance upon Washington instantly. If only five hundred troops are presented in that neighborhood, it will be of immense importance.
g, Dr. Garnett, brother-in-law of ex-Governor Wise, was surrounded in front of his house by a Black Republican mob, and would undoubtedly have been killed had not the police arrived to protect him. In consequence of the seizure of all the flour in the store-houses, by the Government, the citizens apprehend a famine. The Theatre is closed and there is a continual running to and fro of fearful females and weary old men, who are all anxious to seek and find some place of safety and of rest. Alexandria, April 23. --Things are quiet in Baltimore. It has been decided by the President that the U. S. troops shall pass through Annapolis instead of Baltimore. Gov. Hicks objects strongly to their passing through any part of Maryland proper. Seward will not accept the mediation of Lord Lyons, and insists on passing troops. The Potomac is open, and several Government vessels have passed up to-day with troops. There are now about 8,000 troops in Washington.
