The Whereabouts of Gen. Beauregard : by Telegraph to vanity Fair --after manner of Daily papers.
When Gen. Benjamin F. Butler, in command of the Massachusetts regiment, landed at Annapolis, Md., some of the authorities protested against the passage of Massachusetts troops over Maryland soil; when he replied: “Sir, we came here not as citizens of Massachusetts, but as citizens of and soldiers of the United States, with no intention to invade any State, but to protect the capital of our common country from invasion. We shall give no cause of offence; but there must be no fugitive shots or stray bricks on the way.” --N. Y. Commercial Advertiser, April 26.
