There are In the ranks of tbe secessionists in *;jsU?ra Virginia and Maryland many desjierate men. who seek an opportunity to precipitate those StU?sinto revolution. The severe contest now going on in Virginia between the secessionists and the conservatives attords sufficient evtdence that the prerl pita tors area strong body, capable of ruablng to any extreme act of violence which Srntnlsea notoriety or the acquisition of power. 'he fierce debates in the Virginia i*t?te Conven tion, the traitorous proclivities of ex-Oov Wise, the cries of the sec-vslonlst press of the ?tate, all point to tbe real object of the tnltors, who are now struggling to obtain the ascendancy Thus far these schemers have failed in their aim, but the pressure is still steady, and the efforts of the rebellloiA spirits ?f the S'.ate are so persistent as to inspire the liveliest apprehensions in the minds of th- lovers of the Union. In Maryland a smaller but not less determined body of secessionists have taken open ground In fjvor of revolution. Checked In their career by tbe nstrlntir stauH of Hnw Hi?w? fuml to call a State convention has called down ii|K>n blm the extreme wrath of the rebels, they have yet found opportunity* for demonstrations of a treasonable character, and count among their numbers a large array of uneasv spirits who anti- ; clpate the approach of an hour when they can do the work of destruction Public meetings have ! been held, public men have spoken, and one or two of the Baltimore p?p?rs argued In favor of secession. A strong pressure of conservative sen- I timent and the tin mi ess of Gov. Hicks have blocked the game upto this time, but the ferment continues. McCulloch. fully aware of these factj. stated to o:ir informant, In the course of a frank conversa tion. that his object in coming from Texas was to cement and consolidate the secessionist senti ment. He saw an opportunity for exciting 'he passions of the discontented, and proceeded without delay to put his scheme in practice. He now declines, In the most positive manner, that, with the assist nice of Gov. Wise and other rank secessionists of ttie ultra Virginia school, he has succeeded In effecting a complete military or ganization, recruited both from Maryland and Virginia. The number of men already enrolled is five thousand The order is that thev shall be ready for active service at a moment's notice, and that the first step will b? to march upon \\ ashln^ton and th* s"!zure of the federal capital and the archives of the government, at the mo ment when civil war shall commence Th? active military preparations of the government h.ive inspired McCulloch and his fellow-rebels with the belief that a decisive blow is to be struck, and the opportunity that will then be i flared for a display of his force will be eagerly suzed.?
