New York, April 27.--They get some very curious telegraphic despatches down South nowadays. For instance, The Mobile Tribune publishes, with a great flourish of sensation headings, the following:

New Orleans, April 20.--The details from Baltimore say the citizens have no arms except those seized from the Federal troops.

They are fighting like heroes, with paving-stones.

New Orleans, April 20.--The Baltimoreans captured the Seventh Pennsylvania Regiment, taking eight hundred stand of arms.

It is reported that one hundred lives were lost. Maryland has raised her State flag.

Rumors of fighting in St. Louis.

Louisville, April 20.--Kentucky has declared, through her Legislature, that she will secede.

Lincoln will instantly, resign in obedience to Gen. Scott's example.

--The news that Kentucky has seceded and that Mr. Lincoln is about to follow Gen. Scott's example and resign, The Mobile Tribune declares to be specially worthy of confidence.--N. Y. Tribune, April 27.
