[from the St Mary's (Md.,) Gazette.]

The Date Speech of Mr Harris.--Our readers, being the immediate constituents of Mr Harris, will doubtless expect to read his speech in this issue of our paper, but the annexed communication, we presume, will satisfactorily account for our failure to publish it:


Headq'rs cavalry Department,
District of St Mary's

Leonardtown, Md., April 12, 1864.

Sir:
The commanding officer of this detachment desires that you will not publish or make any allusion in the St Mary's Gazette to the treasonable and disgraceful speech of the member of Congress from this district, delivered in the House of Representatives on the 9th inst.

I am, sir, very respectfully your obedient serv't.

F. W. Dickinson
1st Lieut 5th Cavalry, Acting Adj't.
To the publisher and proprietor of the St Mary's Gazette, Leonardtown, Md.
