SAMI MARY’S BEACON LEONARD TOWN, HD. THURSDAY MORNING, MARCH 38. 1861 To Owrwpwdaitß “The Unchanging Plover.** a poetic contribution, is declined. Sever*l of tbs best lines in tin article we have seen lie fore. The 4 ‘sentinel stars set their watch in the sky.** is from Campbell, and we have noticed other lines in the piece which strongly remind us of that distinguished peel. Ormtt Court In consequence of the inclemency of the weather, the late term of our Circuit Court was rather sparsely attended. We believe, however, the usual amount of civil business was transacted, though the criminal docket did not reach, cither ia number or character of cases, the average standard. We are gratified at this evi dence of moral reform in sur community, and are satisfied that onr readers will he plessed to learn that there was no criminal caae of sufficient importance before the Conti as to be deemed worthy of report in our columns. Court adjourned on Friday afternoon, and, a short time* prior to ita adjournment, the Grand Jury presented to bit Honor, Judge Crain, the following preamble and resolutions: Whereas, it is right and proper that those who have been faithful Public Olfi oers should receive the commendation of the people to whom they have devoted their time and talents; and whereas this expres sion of public commendation is especially doe to the Hun. PKTKK W. CHAIN who, as the judicial officer of this district, has decided in controversies between his fellow-citizens of the most delicate charac ter without fear, favor or prejudice, hut with exclusive regard to right and justice; and whereas the present relations existing between his Honor and this body will be terminated by the expiration of his term of office before the reassembling of this body; Therefore, be it resolved by the Grand Jurors of St. Mary’s county. That the course and conduct of Judge Crain, during the whole time he has occupied the bench, is entitled to the full and hearty commend ation of onr body, and that he has shown himself, in every respect, worthy of the confidence reposed in him by the public. Resolved, That independently of ur connection with Judge Crain in his judicial oipacity. we have every reason to regret the interruption of our intercourse with him as a worthy citizen and an seenm tlished gentleman; and that he carries with itn our best wishes for his health, pros perity aid happiness.

His Honor, after ordering them to be read and entered upon the minutes of Court. addroad the Grand Jury at some length and in terms highly complimenta ry, after which he adjourned the Court, from day to day, until Tuesday the 28tb of May. next. m - -■< ■■■ Explanatory We published in our issue of the 14th instant an advertising notice, headed “To whom it may Concern,’* signed “Eliza llcber Keech. Wavcrly. Prince Georges county, MJ.” A letter from Samuel Keech, under date of the 20th of March, informs os that his name should have been signed to the advertisement, and that the signature of the lady named above was a forgery. The circumstances connected with the publication are these: On or about the 12th instant, wc received a let ter, postmarked at Charlotte Hall, contain ing the advertisement in question. To this advertisement no signature was at tached, but in a private note, signed “S. K.” to the Editors at the bottom of the letter, a request waa made that the ad vertisement should be published four weeks. In the letter was a small slip of paper, containing the name and residence of tho lady as we printed it, written in a different band writing from the advert be ment and the note, and placed at the bot tom of the advertisement where the signa ture should hare been. We concluded, of course, that Mr. Keech was siting for the lady and that her name vaa the pro per ene to he attached to the advertise ment. Mr. Keech states in his letter of the 20th instant that the name of the lady was not mentioned by him and wc have ainee teen informed by a member of hia fondly that (be slip of paper was put in the letter without the knowledge of Mr. Keech. How it got there or the mo tive of putting it there, we are unable to divine. Of this we are certain, the lettei had never hcen;broken open. Wears asked to apolsgUe to the public for the publica tion. We think an apology is due to the Indy and her fondly, and we trust the above explanation will boa satisfactory apology to them, so for at least as we arc ■ ■ ■ ... i'The Sew* I Our exchanges bring us but little news ; upon the subject of the National crisis. The policy of the Adiainistrathm a* yet seems | to be shrouded in mystery. and we are no I wiser now. as to the proper meaning to attach to Mr. IJticohTa Inaugural, than Iwe were the morning we read it. Fort * Sumter, it is reported, was to have been > j evacuated uo yesterday, whilst Fort Pick • * i* and the other Southern Forts arc to be i reinforced. The Republicans declare that • i the abandonment of Sumter is not brongbt i about or prompted by any other cause than I that of a “strict military necessity.”— i From this we may infer that peace or con | cession will not be the policy of the ’ Administration, and, that the republicans can be brought to terms only by the * “knock down argument.” The Virginia I Convention has done nothing new of im ► ( portance and it is thought w ill soon ad f journ sine die. The people of Arkansas i! are to vote upon the question of secession, j i at the next regular election day,—some i' time in August next. The constitution of .! the Southern Confederacy has been pub | lUbed and, is, in the main, identical with I . the old one. The changes, however, I ( through few. are important and radio d.— Gov. Hicks hats written another letter. and j still adheres to his original views upon the j I crisis. The general impression seems to : i' be that no more States will secede before next Fall, if t nil, and that if one Border . Stale moves the rest will assuredly follow. _ j t&T Tax Mechanic's and Maxifac ■ TiEKBS Exchange, Scn Ikos Bulging. ■ i Bai.timohk. where Messrs. C. 11. Craft A Co. have removed, is about to b< re- j organised by them, and established on a i , firm and useful hasi* Extensive addi tions are being made to the Reading Room, j which is very spacious ami wvll-fittteu up. ! and contains papers on file from almost ail 1 the cities and towns in the country. This I i will be a useful Institution to the Mer chants and business Men of Baltimore, | and a place of resort by visitors to Balti j more, from all parts of the country*. Such lan Institution for the accommodation of! ! • strangers has long been needed, ami wo 1 have often been surprised atthe apathy of the ! . business men of Baltimore in the n atter j compared with New York, Boston and : Philadelphia. But now that an t liter- ( I prising firm like Craft A Co. have dial-1 ' | lenged their support, we trust they will! j spiritedly respond. l>ur brethren of the ! , ! Press we km*w will appreciate the Insti tution from their first visit. The 1 *ri*s and Advertising i 1 ; Agencies.— The country press of Mary-1 i land has been especially swindled and cheated for years past by dishonest “Ad- ; vertisiug Agencies” and business bouses; in New York, and instead of the evil be ing mitigated by the increased caution and ! * watchfulness on their part it seems to in-• p crease every year. We can perceive no ' remedy against it except the selection of one or two responsible and honest Agcn- I eies in every Northern city, and inserting ■ ! ho advertisement on credit except from ; these Agents, or if net through them for | ro*h only. In this connection it gives us! pleasure to accord our high confidence—■ shared in by all the press of Maryland— ' in the Adctrtisiug Aynuy of Dullimore j City, conducted by C. 11. Craft A Co., j | which has recently been removed to new and commodious quarters in the Sun Iron Building, Baltimore, and by this extended arrangement ami increased facilities pro- j i scuts to the Preas of Maryland and the : , butiineM* men of Baltimore one of the finest j i; institutions in the country. 1 „■ Slavery and Cotton. —The Baltimore ‘ American says.—A great deal has been ■ said of late about (he substitution of flax ) for cotton; but it seems to be forgotten that for tho cultivation of that substitute j the soil of some of the slave States is pe culiarly well adapted. Nearly two thirds ' of the whole flax crop of the country is i • produced by Kentucky, Tennessee, Mis- j . souri. North Carolina and Virginia. . When these philosophers suppose that there is no department of industry but the ! cotton culture in which slave labor b prof i itable, they make the most egregious blurt . der that even philosophers were ever guil ty of. At least twenty millions of dollars are now invested in the Southern States ' in manufactures and twenty-live thousand . operatives employed. The South pro r duces neaily one-fourth of the wool grown in the United States. Its corn crop, un til tho last two harvests, amounted to one half of the whole corn product of the Conn ie try. There arc four or five Southern f States either of whiuh produces ten times e the provisions and live stock of Ragland. ■ Not more than one third of the elavea of * | the South are engaged in making cotton J ; for market. So ills very clear that the • I abandonment of the cotton crop would not - | involve the abandonment of slavery. The “Undkeoeocsd Railroad.”—The * i Hon. Joshua R. Gtddings, the father of 1j the Ohio “irrepressibles,” ha* been as - j signed by the new administration the poM bI of Conenl General of the United States st e | Montreal. This stations him at the north -1 ern terminus of the U. G. R. R., where * he can superintend ike arrival of the pas e sengers, and take the general overright of the road. The African Slave Trade; j The Congrats of the Confederate State has passed a law prohibiting any person 1 from directly or indirectly importing. or bringing in any manner whatever, into the States or Territories of the Confedera cy. from any foreign kingdom, place or country, (other than the slavoholding States among their late confederates ) or from the sea, any negro, mulatto. roof/V, 'or persdA of color, aa a dbre. or to be 1 held to service or labor, for any length of time whatever. Here we arc in advance of both England and France, which are ■ introducing coolies from India and Chi na to their colonies, to labor for a giv |en term of years. The vessel engaged .in such trade is to be seized and for* foiled ; and the person so importing, or • aiding others to import negroes, Ac., is ' liable to a fine of from one to five thousand dollars, and to imprisonment ! for a term oflfteu to twenty years. Any person selling, purchasing, receiving, concealing any negro, Ac., so may be fined from , one to dollars for each : °ne and if any person shall, or °^ iers a * master, factor build, equip. load or other wise prepare a vessel within a port of the Confederacy, for such trade, the t vessel be forfeit, and he may be ; fined to five thousand dollars, •, and iniprisuiMr five years. Olfcflflfcpro visions of the act refer to the forfeiture by the claimant of any negro so import, ed, even when he has been an innocent purchaser. 1 The Uw is so stringent and so guard :ed against the probability of its i 1 frac ' tion, that we presume few of the North tern shipmasters, who chiefly engaged in • the trade, will ri**k themselves within I Southern waters. We truct our calum niators at the North, who. rather in ! consistently, have declared in one breath that we stand in feur of the slaves now here, and in another have vowed that one chief purpose in acceding was to ini ' port hordes of African barbarians, will begin to understand the purpose of the ■ Sout h. M e have no doubt tills action of our Congress will give general satisfaction, fWe dare to aver in behalf of our own I large constituency *f forty oi fifty thous and readers, that it will meet with their almost universal approval.— Southera fCfmrlotoh) Christ tun A<fn*‘(ile. Tub Tariff and Collection* of Rkvr , SIB. Fur} union of' Southern C'owwrrrr | -The Not them (republican) Journals i continue to le terribly pnzxlcd in vu w of I the “breakers ahead,*’ W'hile giving a ! reluctant consent to the evacuation of Port j Sumter, as a “military necessity.” they evidently begin to sec that the new tariff and the collection of revenue will put them to a severe test. Aa the New York Express remarks, they fear an extra session, to give them power to art. and if an extra session did give them power, they fear action, lest they tome into conflict i with foreign powers. Collecting duties lon the quarter deck, by 2,000 mihs of | blockade, they begin to comprehend, is ; rather difficult, if nut quite impossible, i The Journal of Commerce, too, in survey ; ing the republican programme—first, the ; Morrill tariff, to enforce which, South, | Congress has to be evoked in extra sc i sion- -second, ports of cutty to be nbol : ished. South, and goods made contraband i when attempting to enter, remarks: i “Such piracy will never be submitted to by the other powers. While we have the undoubted right to regulate the commerce ,in places of which we are in possession, jby establishing, abolishing or changing jour ports of entry, it would be an ns j sumption of power quite intolerable, should we undertake by our more dictum, • to exclude from the ports of two thousand , miles of sea-coast upon the Confederate j States, the commerce essential to the | trade, productions and prosperity of mil lions of people in both hemispheres. £?uch j a policy will never be submitted to for a i moment by England, by France, or by 1 any nation which has the power or spirit to resent it. Whatever may be the antici pations of tbe administration at Washing ton respecting the recognition of or the ! refusal to recognize the Confederate ! Flutes, we may rest assured that such an ; outrage upon commercial and maritime j rights as the projiosed plan would involve, : will no* commend the government of the United States to favor, in the opposition w hich it tuny feel called upon to make to the recognition of the dc facto government of which President Davis U the head. Gov. Flotd Vindicated.—The sensible and accurately informed Washington cor- I respondent of the New York “Journal of ! Commerce,” in his letter of the 11th iust. ■ says : j “Ex-Secretary Floyd is here. Hi* i statement concerning the acceptance-. ' Ac. is correct. An investigation into the j facts was lately made by eminent lawyers here, as counsel for holders of the accep ! tances, and led them to tin: conclusion that i there were but six or seven hundred thous ; and dollars of acceptances afloat, and that j these were well secured, atad that the gov- I eminent would lose nothing by paying them. Neither does it appear that there was illegality in tbe issue of acceptances. It had been the usage of departments to give certificates of indebtedness. The Post Office Department was supported for nearly a year in this way. TU lloiw- Committee cannot sustain their loos* aim i exaggerated statements on this subject.” The indictments against Guv.
