Administration of what is u w falsely call* d the United States f Anieri- | ea—when there is a detennim d purpose ' an the part of those controlling such Ad- j ministration to deprive nearly half of those h'utca of their ••qual rights in the admiuis- • tratiou of the Government. an I the en joyment of equal privilege# within the limits of the same, in violation of tin- : latter and spirit of the constitution f ‘ the United Slates—wh>n eight Slates j have determine*), bv the seven igu will of • tnvirpv 'pK . tiiat they have severed their i connection with said sectional Government i and declared tlnir -ietvriHi nation to govern themselves, and their effort to do ►*. , peaceably, has been prevented by the: armed aggression of the sectional Govern ment. by invading their soil, blockading fheir porta, destroying their commerce anti j trade, and in every way aggressing tln*sr i rights and institution* with a view to force ' them to submission, it is due to the people! of those States, that the people of all ulh- ' er Stales, friendly to Justice and flight, 1 and to those principles of Freedom aud ; Independence which prompted our Fore- I fathers to resist aggression and wrong, I should c-xpreas their sympathy with this* caufc of Right, against the came of might j aud tyranny. Therefore,- we, the citiicns of Saint ! Mary's Countv, Maryland, in County ! meeting assembled, do earnestly and de- j rolcdly express our sympathies with (hoi cause and people of the States which i have seceded from the Union, aud. d pledge ourselves by every sacred übliga- j lion we cau aasunic. to aid, by every means in nnr power, in securing the In- i dependence of all those States, uud that of such others as may join them.

Harris moved that s Committee [of three be appointed by the Chair to i wait upon the Commishi-mers* Court and j n qu- it them to levy the amount ca led • for hy the second resolution. Tbe motion j was carried and the following gentleiner were appointed: li. G. Harris. Dr. Wal- i ; trr Briscoe and W illiam TI. Thomas. The Committee soon returned and reported I that the Court had responded to the re i.qneet of ih- ui-etirig and had expressed a 1 willingness to double the sum called for ,:f ueccsary. As soon a* it was known j ‘hat tiii* action hid becu taken, a patriotic 1 j citiicn of this county promptly agreed to ; furnish tbe money to the amount of the l*vy. The Legislature- Wc await with confidence the acti-m of this body W'c believe that they will vote 1 means r© put the State in condition to be heard with respect when,the time shall ar rive for her to .>p-ak. Wc believc that ' j they will utithoi iXe tin- Cali of u Sovereign j Convention to decide lu.r dc*tiny. And with this we arc content. W'e feel no *p prehensiou in regard to thst decision.

The Meeting. The ueciiug of -iiicßv and Military in j oar Town on Tuesday, the 2ilrd of April. ; I wa decidedly the largest that ever con- • I vetted in the county It is estimated that j there were from eight hundred to a tfion ( parsons present duriag the day. The i ; military turned out in their full strength. ; ; At an early hour in the morning, they be | gan to pour into the village, and by 12; ; o’clock our usually quiet streets presented ;au appearance of s-ibre and bayonet iht ; forcibly reminder the beholder t*f a fid i { !°f battle. The “St. Mary’s Guards,’’ | Gapt. Robert Neale, were th* first that; arrived Soon after came the “CHflcn i ! i ; Guards,” Capt. J.

Th* Charlotte Company Wire not prek-nf ' owing, wr learn, to the absence of: (’apt. 'J’h-viias, who yvhs in Baltimore on . the day of the meeting. Several members i jf this Company, however, were present and attracted considerable nmiee by their ; soldierly appearance atid handsome uni-1 form.

The design was pronounced .by I all an admirable one and elicited the ad-" > miration ami applause of the vast con- • 1 course of persona .who witnessed the 'pn scut at ion.

The answer of the ; administration was. “(hat Washington ' was threatened with attack—that the C-v --ernuient bad resolved to defend it—iha* l here was no other way of obtaining uoop- I than by passing theta the so:! of Ma ryland, and that the military necessity of' the case rendered if inipo>iiblc fir the i Government to abandon its plans.’* Ills Excellency taya, that Gen Butler aked bis consent to have th© l?rca under him ; landed at Annapolis whuli he refused. !

His Excellency protot ;-d the military* occupation of the : Annapolis.and Elk Ridga Kail Road, but the proud was not respected. Another ap{K*al was made to the authorities at .Washington, but with no better result than before. The Governor is now con vinced that the War Department has eon . ciuded to make Annapolis the point for lauding troops slid Ins resolved to maintain communication between that cuy and Washington. Yet, notwithstanding all these outrages *.ad inu!t©, Ills. Exoe'- Icney has no better ad vice to gir- the proud and si ill unconqueivd people of thi.- State than I hi.*: i | It is my duty to adu-v you *f my i "wu convictions of the proper coarse to be pu; .-ued by Maryland in the emergency ; which is upon u It is of no consequent.* now to discuss the cause© wliivli hnv in ,du.e.l onr troubles. L.t u © look Xo our distressing present, and to our portmtou© luture. 'i he fate of Maryland and per haps of heV sister border slave Flutes wi'i undoubtedly be seriously affected hv tlr ; action of your honorable Umv. There fore should every go h! citizen head all his energies to the task b* fore n, and. then - ' tore, should the animosities and bickerings I*f the past be foig-.ttm. and all -trike bunds in the holy cause of restoring peace ,to our beloved State and to eur common 1 country. I honestly ;uid most earnestly entertain the couvietiun that h’ onlv saf ;ty of Maryland lies in preserving a r.cau ; iral position between our bre*hrw of the North and of the Bonlh. We have viola ted no rights of either section. We hue been loyal to the I nion. The unhappy ' eoute-l between the two sections has uot been fermented or encouraged by us, al ibough we have ©uflend from it in the past. Ihe impending war has not come by any act or by any wish of ours. We have done all we could to avert it. Wc have hoped that Maryland and the other border slave State*, by their conservative position and love for the Fnion, might have as mediator© between the t*x iicine* *t’both section*, and UiU© have pre routed the terrible evils of a prolonged ; civil war. Entertaining views, I cannot counsel Maryland to take sides ; against tin* general government, anl.l it shall commit cutrag* s up*>i us which would justify us in r—riling its authority As a consequence. I can give no other counsel than that shall array ourselves for I’nion and peace, and thus preserve our soil from being polluted with the blood .of brethren. Thus, if w*r tuunt be be tween the North ;*ucl the .'South, we may force the contending parties no transfer the field of battle from our soil, so that our 1 lives ana properly may be secure. It seems t* u.e independently of all otb r : considerations, our geographical position press Us t* this, uultss we arc willing, to see our State the theatre of a long and bloody civil war. and the consequent utter destruction of every material interest of our prcplr, to sny nothing of the bleed of ; Lrave men and innocent women and chil , dren, whmli will cry out from our soil for | vengeance upon u? if wc fail to do all that in us lies to avert the impending calamity, 1 Proceedings of the Legislature^ This body met in Frederick city on i Friday last. Nothing of importance has yet been done. The members manifest I no disposition to exercise the powers of a Convention by passing an act of accession.
