fmm SAINT MARTS BEACON LEONARD TOWN* MD. THURSDAY MORNING, BBPT. 5. 1861 To Oorwtßondwta “A Jjover’s Uy," by Maud, ha* bean received and will appear in our next issue. Covaty Conwcntio®. The peace or State Rights Convention, which met here on Tuesday last, appointed lion. 0 Miles. George 11. Morgan and C I Durant delegates, and Cc 4. J. V. Dent. Henry I. Carroll and Albert Yoang alternates to the State Con vent ~m. to as semble in Baltimore on the 10th instant. The Conv ntion empowered the same dele gates to meet their brother delegates from this Judicial District, to nominate a candi date for Judge of the Court of Appeals. It further designated Saturday, tbe ' instant, as the day for holding Primary Meetings in the several election dLdrict ol the county, for the.purpose of selecting five delegates, from each district, to a County Convcntbui to assemble in Leon *r 1 Town on the Tuesday following, with a view of nominating candidates for the Senate and House of Delegates of Mary land. A Belligerent Party- The llniuu Party of Maryland is not' only fur war, but ie fur banging all. we believe, iu Maryland flat talk uf peace. If it could give law to the Government. Uivu would hereafter, we are confident, have to talk war or talk nothing. It is , even doubtful, judging from the temper of its* newspaper organs, whether it would not, i if it had the power, convert silence itself into a criminal offence and arrest and im- , prison men fir holding their tongues and minding tlieir own business. One of these organs—the Annapolis Gazette —boldly secures the Government of criminal len iency toward* the State Rights men of Maryland and threatens, that the Union men may be driven stress of weather to take care of themselves, whatever that may mean. It doubtless means micking malt cho, but the Government need labor under no apprehensions of mischief from this quarter, if it will only come to a right un derstanding with the Slate Rights men of Maryland. It has only to authorize these m*-n to have the peace kept in Maryland and it will be kept—to place them on an equality with their Union atc users and to give them the full benefit of the laws of the land. Every body then will mind their own business —there will be no disturb ance mud no body will be hurt. Let the Govern meat try the effect of a little kind ness upon the State Rights men of Mary land. Its patronage of the Union men has cidy tended to cripple its exertions and is now being repaid by throats. The Gov ernment should not forget that the Union men have claimed the result of the late Congressional election as indicating an overwhelming Union sentiment in the State, and yet it knows they are the first to whine and whimper whenever a Federal re giment stationed here is to be withdrawn for active service elsewhere—the first to whine and whimper and the last to enlist to de fend a Government which they profess, like the pelican daughters of hear, to love •‘more than words can wield the matter and beyond what can be valued, rich or rare I” Let the Government abstain from persecuting and pniscrihiug the State Rights men of Maryland, and it can have bond and security, not only that they will bear true allegiance to the Constitution of the Undid States, hut also that they will keep the peace uf Maryland for nothing. Freedom of Speech and the Frets. The right of free speech mm of a free Press, had, we heretofore believed, be rnmc so identified with Republican insti tutions, as to ensure the preservation of their inviolability in any crisis that might arise in the affairs of the American people. Indeed, we had learned to regard these rights as not only inherent and inviolate, but as clothed with a sanctity that not even the rude hand of despotism would dare to invade. Wo had watched, with painful emotions, the foreshadowing of the trou bles now upon the country. We hud noted and deplored the dark cloud of fa naticism gathering at the North; and viewed, with distrust and dismay, the sectional hostility that that fanaticism had engendered. We well knew, ere the Charleston Convention had been three days in session, that without a reaction in the popular mind, the death knell of the TTnton was sounded. We knew that Southern patriotism, or rather Southern forbearance, had stood its last test, and that the fiery Huegcnots of Sooth Caroli na had determined, that the oppression, from which their forefathers fled a century ago, should not be revisited upon them by the fanatics of Yankcedom. We well knew if South Carolina seceded other States would follow. Whither right orl wrong in their dieblon, it is not our i object to speak—perhaps it would be treu- | sou to do so—but, that they acted upon JT the principle tbit laid tbc foundation of the late United States of America, we will, , at least, take (he liberty of insinuating. Bat, wo are digressing. We knew the Union must be i dismembered, and that war—civil war—conM not reunite 'he American people. What, then, became mrr duty t Af' citizen of a Border and i loyal State, we proclaimed for peace. As a public journalist wc advcat*l it through 1 onr column*. as tbe only ground upon which we could base a hope for re-qgn struction. We were honest in our posi tion. and acted dpon motives of patrkrism and for the pubic weal. If we had deemed it possible, we tfid not desire to see the >outh oubjugnted. or war and tatition brought up*H the American people. These were our convictions, and, aa so Ameri :c au citizen, we took the liberty of giving ; them aa oral and written publicity. Mr. Lincoln now says tliis la treason, and all , such talking and writing must be stopped. TieonOh to advocate peace! Treason to I express disapprobation of an unholy, profit less and fratricidal war!! Treason, to contemn despotism and tyranny .. I \ es, , this is all treason. Mr. Lincoln ha Ue- I creed it, and lljie laws of the land are pow j ericas beside Ae wall of bayonets that now eacompawi the venerable i'aiiey. We remember, though, when to write, or Ulk, or even 1 attack the policy of the ; ruling power, In its own Halls of Leg's Ist ion, wss not treason. We have a faint | recollection of jibe first American rdielliuii —of the days ?of (eorge the Third —ol Pitt, Burko and Barre—and of a British Constitution, which even a King respect ed. But, Mr.| Lincoln rises superior to George the Third —to the British and even the Aiuctiuuu Constitution, lie h;s the power to oppress and suppress; and we [ must learn to |c mute or he will find the i means to silcupe us In conclusion, we 1 will State, that if for the future wc are in jhiLited from talking or writing in favor l of peace, we shall fall hack upon our re served right df thinking: and, if we should chance to think—out loud—that Mr. Lin coln has violated his Constitutional oath, and is a, we trust we shall ot be anaigued for reason. t . The News. \ The most important warlike operation uf the past seems to have Ihhii the capture, by Gen. Butler, of Forts 11 at terns •oid ('lark on the coast of North Carolina. These Forts, or rather saud battens, were manned! by the 7th Noith Carolina | Volunteers, ji umbering about TOO men. | uuder the command of Cot. Martin, whilst the forces under Rutlcr are estimated at 6000. The North Carolinians fought gallantly, and successfully defended the • batteries fur two days, when their nninm j tion became exhausted, and tlwy were forced to surrender. The attacking squad ron numbered seven sail and mounted over 100 guiis, whilst the combined ar mament of She two batteries numbered about 16 pieces. Among the officers cap tured are Cdui. Barron, late U. S. N., and Col. Martiu and Maj. Andrews of North Carolina. The Federal* report no j loss, whilst the Confederates are stated to have lost 15filled, .‘lO wounded and from GOO to 700 prisoners. This victory, though decided unimportant as to future results, has caused great rejoicing both among the officials and soldiery at Wash ington. TUe point seized is reported to be 80 miles distant from any inhabited ur inhabitable portion of North Carolina, but, the simple rearing of the Stars and Stripes iu the Old North- State, is considered a highly important achievement. There has been considerable skirmishing in the vicinity of Washington, during the past week, though no event of importance has transpired. The Confederates are re ported to I* still increasing their forces in the neighborhood of Arlington Heights, and elsewhere on the Potomac. There seems to be no doubt, now, that they con template an assault upon Washington, hut as to the time and plan of attack nothing is known beyond conjecture. Troops far the Government continue to pour through Baltimore, and the war spirit at the North is reported to be ruth r on the rise than decline. The news from Western Virginia is conflicting and contradictory. One day we hear that Lee has surrounded Rosencrans, and the next we are told that Lee is proposing terms of capitulation. By Tuesday night’s mail, we see that a report has reached Richmond; that Rosencrans has surren dered to Lee, but. as the report dates more than m week back and has not been | confirmed, we suppose it to be entirely unfounded. Col. Tyler’s command, in the Kanawha Valley, baa been surrounded by Floyd’s brigade and badly used up, though the | Federal report that he succeeded iu cut- , ting his way through the Confederate; lines, with a lues of only 200 men. j All is quiet at Fortress Monroe, and I there is nothing new of importance from | Missouri. | Civil war is said to lie brew-! iug in Kentucky, though late advices i from there report everything quiet. It is slated by the Washington corres pondent of the N. Y. Hr raid, that the State Right Convention, Ui be held in Baltimore city on the 10th instant, will be suppressed by order of the Government, hat. as we have seen nothing confirmatory . of this statement. wt are unwilling to be- | lieve that any such outrage ta cmiteui-1 plated. CoVMTMCATwJ .Vr.r* Editor* :—ln your issue of last, week, I find that n correspondent, over the signature of * Saint Mary’s County.”! has announced Messrs Morgan and Durant, as candidates fir re election to'the Legist*-1 lure of Maryland. Your correspondent, states that, ‘*in the hour of trial and dan-1 ger,” these men ‘"have be;*n found (ms to their duty” and, therefore, deserve to be honored and rewarded lie states, that their “recent and really heroic ouu duet” entitles them to endorsement, •‘ir respective of past issues, and. perhaps, some exceptionable legislation.” lie furth er states, that this reward is due to them i “in common with the majority in the [ Senate and House of Delegates’* of Mary- I laud. Thus far, your correspondent has I , lias done well, and the friewds of MesffH. I Morgan and Durant appreciate the *■- ; lives that prompted his action in i iscs. But, Sirs, whilst bestowing this i “measure of reward” upon these gentlemen, has ypur correspondent done full justice to , the delegation from Saint Mary’s? Has: 1 he tbrgotleu that we have another repre- • s -iitative hi the legislature of Maryland. ■ who constitutes one of that majority which he deems, in eom.nem with Messrs Morgan : and Durant, entitled to thvf reward of en- * dorse men t ? Has the “recent action” of * that representative been lea “really hero- ; ic,” or patriotic, than (hat of his col-1 leagues, or loss disserving reward, tli m j any one of that majority which your cor- i respondent so eloquently applauds? Then. ! why was the name of the lion. (>. Miles omitted in this announcement? If “past issues” and even ‘ exceptionable legisla- j | lion” are to be “generously ignored,” how tcan your correspondent justify this persoi.- !al and invidious discrimination ? lie cun j Certainly point out nothing, in the recent j action of Mr. Miles, antagonistic to the i : honor and interest of the State, or incon ! sisteut with that of his colleagues from this comity. Entertaining those views, in which I believe (he voters of this county fully con cur, I herewith recommend the Hon. O. i MILKS, us a candidate for re-election to (h Senate of Maryland, at the ensuing Full election. JUSTICE. April sth 1861. Peice and State Rights Party. | An invitation, numerously signed, has been issued, culling upon the people of this county to organise for the approach ! ing fall election. This movement is made j totally irrespective of part political differ ences. It is the spontaneous action of those who feel deeply impressed with the solemn issues now presented to the people of Maryland, and with the necessity of ; prompt, united aud decisive action in ! order to arrest, if possible, the ruin now ; iupouuing over the existence aud integrity j of Free Government. No man, unless he is a designing un ! scrupulous aud desperate demagogue, can or will apieal to party prejudices. Party organizations are broken up, ajd the strug gle to-day it not for the success of a mere political question, or the distribu -1 tion of official nwards and plunder, but a ; struggle for life and death. ■ A war has been inaugurated which can result in nothing but universal disaster. I unless speedily arrested. The Northern i States, under the arbitrary dominion of ! the Black Republican party, have entered I upon the contest with the determination of ■ subjugating the South and abolishing | State institutions, as the preliminary step I to the reconstruction of the Union, and the preservation of Constitutional Govern eminent. To prosecute the war success fully, the Administration of President Lincoln has been authorized to call out five huutired thousand men, and live hun dred millions of dollars have been voted i by the Congress of the United States. I In order to raise ‘his extraordinary I amount of money, taxation such as the ! people of this country have never suffered t from, has been resorted to, and every I means which ingenuity could devise, or ! reckless extravagance could suggest, has ! ! been adopted u> burden the people with I | taxes which must ruin every branch of i industry, aud bring poverty aud suffering ■on every class of the community. The! necessaries of life, coffee, sugar, tea, &c., j • are so highly taxed, that the poorer cla ; scs of our citizens must in a great mea- j ! sure if not altogether abandon them. Direct Taxation, on ulk kinds of property, j which the present generation has been exempt from, under which every man! will pay to the Tux Gatherer appointed by ; Mr. Lincoln, an amount proportioned to 1 the property ho possesses, is another in- , strument by which money is to be extor ted for the prosecution of this unholy war. j In addition to this, a tax of three per! ! cent, is imposed upon the income of every ; citiseo, over a certain amount, whether | be be a farmer, a mechanic, or * profes sional man. First, all the necessaries of life are taxed—then our property and pos- i sessions are to be taxed—and lastly a por | lion of oar income derived from this same I property b also to be eudorlt d from ns. Can human ingenuity devise more one rous and more oppressive measures, by which the whole country is to be impo- j relished. and swarms of officers and tax gatherers appointed to “barram our peo- i pie and eat out their substance.” These arc the least evils which can arise from the terrible civil war which now j desolates the land. Thousands of human 1 lives must fail victims in inhuman and unchristian conflict. Desolation aud sor- The voiee of chrbrian charity will be hu>hed. amidst the carnage of th* battle- ( field, and infidelity., licciitomsncps and vice, will follow as the inevitable result from the fierce passions and dialvHeal i hatred which the bloody and fratricidal l conflict will engender. j (bn the people of Marvland hesitate in * deciding to east fh'ir inflnene* in behalf ‘ of Peace ? Oan |aurty prejudices, nr the appeals of th'vw* wb<vi* aim and nt*i**et is office, tvm iVm from the stem demands nf patriotism and humanity J la-t lerj people through the ballot box demand Peace. Should the voice of her people be unheeded, they will have the consolation at least of knowing that they have per formed u solemn duty. By Peace the out- < raged rights of Maryland may be vindicat ed, her eivil authorities re-established and the security of life, liberty aud pro perly secured to her people. Should we fail in this, the future will determine what course the necessities of the ease j may require.— Kent Cons* rcator. How an Army Howes-

There are a great many things be-; sides men and gnus essential to the army, uud a commander about to lead h army into a hostile country, first sees that the , commissariat i well provided with prov.s- • ions, that there are ample means of trails-! porfation, and that there is a reserve of ammunition, and clothing, and a g*H>d ■ supply of hospital s"or< s and medicines. — All the preliminary arrangements tor the march having been carefully made, the ‘order of march” is communicated to the, seven! commanding officer* of divisions, brigades and regiments, bui not published in orders. The troops are distributed ac cording to the character of the country. — In n very open country, n large proper- j tion of cavalry would be at the head of the column ; but. generally it is* distributed throughout the line. The artillery should be in the rear of the first foot regiment. — | An advance or rear guard of mounted troops —one or two companies—*li"ul I be d* tailed each day ; and th<* regiment that has the right of the line one day should be u x: day in the in a woody or mountainous country, de tachments of flankers and skirmishers are thrown out to the right and left of the col umn, at the distance of one or two hun dred puc.:s, to keep a sharp lookout, and prevent any such and gratui tous exferi<-i)ce as those painfully aud re cently familiar to us in connection with the ambuscade on the road to Vienna.— The column having been formed at half nr quartet distance, and the baggage train assembled in the rear, protected by a guard selected from each regiment for its own baggage the column is put in motion and the march commenced with same reg ularity as would be observed by a regi ment moving in and nut of a garrison town, the band nlavinw, the light infantry with A uf -3 w 1 arms sloped and those of the riflemen ! swung over the shoulders, the officers with swords drawn, exact wheeling distances preserved, and perfect silence observed.— After having proceeded a short distance in this manner the word of command “route step.” is given by the general at the head of the lending battalion, mid pas sed quickly on to the rear. The captains, instead of continuing at the head of their companies, draw back to the rear of them, that they may see any men of theii respec tice companies who attempt to quit the ranks without leave. The soldiers then march and carry their arms in any man ner convenient to them, conversation and smoking being ordinarily allowed. The Catholic Press and the War.— Our contemporary, the Catholic Mirror. of this city, concludes an admirable edi torial, in this week’s issue, upon “The Catholic Press aud the War,” in the fol lowing earnest and speaking language— speaking, we doubt not, the almost uni versal sentiment of the Catholics of Ma ryland : “Wherefore is what we have written, we have had an entire singleness of aspira ! tion and purpose—peace first, peace last. • peace ever. Peace alone can restore the j country to its proper condition of pro<peri j ty. In peace only can we husband profit ably the inheritance of political liberty be queathed to us, and save our beneficent Constitution from the ravishing hand of military despotism. We are therefore for peace—peace, because it will give to the Union the life-blood of constitutional lib erty, without which the Union must be come a consolidated despotism—peace, be cause it is required to save the poor from the sufferings f poverty and the tempta tion to crime—peace, because it is in con j souaucc with the interests, and teachings, and charities, of our Holy Church—and peace, because die Divine Spouse of that !In!y Cbnrch bath said ; ‘Blessed are the peace-makers, lor they shall see God. ,w The New York Newspapers.— lf the Government sb mid undertake to suppress all the journals in New York which arc simply “denounced,” journalism in the Em pire City will become an eradicated insti tution. as each newspaper seems to be' en gaged in thu laudable business of denounc ing its rival ns a promoter of treason.— The ID raid calls for the suppression of the Tribune and Independent, and Garri son’s Liberate*. The Tribune calls for the suppression of th? Herald aud the Courier det Elat Unit. The Time* is, no doubt, of the opinion that the World ought to be stopped, and the World will think the same of the Timet. When the daily journals have thus used each other up. like the Kilkenny (aits, the weeklies will follow suit, and newspapers will become as scarce here as they are in China. If there is to j be a censorship of the Press, it Would be a* ’ well to constitute some capable aud re sponsible person as judge aud examiner, I and establish some rule for editorial gui dance. A Forced Union. —Dr. Russell, in his . London Time* correspondence, says: “It the Federal Government perseveres in its design to make Union by fore*', it may prepare for a straggle the result of which will leave the Uuiou very little to fight for.” I ' Shook ino Condition of Tiiumh is Main*. —luau article on the unfortunate rupture of (be Democratic party of Maine, at this perilous hour, when the united vnce of jthe Democracy li •’emended for the safety •of the country, that true and always p*- I triotie old Democratic journal, the Port ! land Argns. speaks at fellows; ' ’ “Our own beleved State is, to all *p- | pea ranees, fast drifting into the awful golf i of violent strife aud anarchy, if it i* not already jm the very brink. The pasrions * ; of men are aroused —outrages arc commit ted ujhmi persons and property, and an embittered state of feeling threatens to be come more and more inflamed, until it shall result in blood ami carnage. We • are possibly in the midst of syiiituiint such as preceded the horrors of the French Rev- , elutimi. The disruption of the part}' at < this time is far from being calculab'd to allay apprehensions. It can but magnify 1 them. -- ? I Freon the A ’nr York Herald. j The Loveliness ok Harmony.—Since J the outbreak of ibis Southern iclndUmi wC t j have not neglected the duty of marking • and exposing the disorganizing schemes and movements of the radical abolition : wing of the Republican party. We have j ! shown that the bloody instructions of the New York Tribune, the sneaking incen diarism of the Time*, and the undiluted ; abolitionism of the Independent, the Anti- Slevery Standard. aud the Boston Libera - II tor, are all directed to the same object— emancipation or disunion—the liberation : t of the fear millions of slaves of the South i by force of arms, or the adoption of Lloyd j ■ Garrison's ultimatum, “no union with, I’ 1 slaveholders.” Erom the A etc York Time*. j r B.anctt is just now endeavoring to stir I up tie* elements of disorder mid violence I (in the North, and especially in this city. : He is eager for more riots, for more such 1 1 mobs as compelled him. not long ago. to , 1 stop advocating the cause of secession and !to hoist the Union flag. He invokes pub , i lie indignation against rival newspapers. ' | and is especially zealous in stirring up 1 hate against the Time* ami Tribune. Of course he docs it by lying—by falsehoods of the most barefaced and impudent sort. llt would not be in character for him to j i tell the truth, even if that would serve his tuiu. ’ Mr. Rissell and Secretary Blair.— Mr. Russell, in n late letter to the London j.j Time*, made a statement to the effect that t jin a private department of the Post-office J ; he had found a gentleman assorting letters at a desk whom he hud lately met at diu j ncr with the Commissioners of the Con federate States at Washington. According to the I\epdJiran of this morning, Mr. Russell mistakes the City j Post-office for the General Post-office, and it was at the former place he met the gen ii alluded to (Mr. Phillips of Al:i --s hama). who was engaged in looking n\'er the foreign mail iu search of packages and ~ letters, which he was authorized to for j ward to his Southern friends, upon paying t the postage. Of course Mr. Blair was not present, for he has nothing to do with the Washington City Post-office, and sel ’* Join goes there. Federal Hill, Baltimore, to be For tikteu. —The work of fortifying Federal |( Hill is progressing rapidly, and over one hundred men are hard nt work in excavat j ing for the entrenchments, besides long trains of horses and carta. The building of the Marine Observatory, which stood upon the brow of the elevation, has been removed to a point near Captain Shillin gcr’s public house, ami the old frame build ' ing adjoining the old site will soon b<* leveled to the ground. The hill is on hundred feet above the surface of the wa ter. Ex-Governor Lowe.—The Richmond Dispatch, of the Dili instant, announces . the arrival of the wile of Ex-Governor Lowe in that city, and ways, “through her [. kindness we are placed in possession of . late Baltimore and New York papers.”— . The ex-Govemor is engaged in raising a . | brigade in Virginia, which the Despatch I states is to be “placed in immediate ser f via* of the most desperate kind.” r L * The Kkntccky Commissioners —lt is ' reported that a despatch has been received * iu this city aiinuum;iiig the result of (he * interview between Mr. Lincoln and the 1 Commissioners sent by Gov. Mag ffin to * Washington. It is stated ibal the Presi dent has determined to shape bis policy, • so far as regards Kentucky, agreeably * to the wishes of the Union niemUew of [ the Legislature aud ike Union delegation 1 in Congress. We regard the reply of the Pretddcnt to the CummUsiuucrs—if it shall move u* reported—as by no means satisfactory— ’ au a trick of the Union party to gain time, 5 so that by an act of the legislature the * Lincoln encampments to the State can be increased and legalized, aud the St-te Guard disbanded, and when this shall be done, there will be no difficulty in march ’ ing Lincoln soldiers into the State, and 1 re-enacting here the same scenes which ‘ have transpired in Maryland aud Missou ri.—LouttriUc Courier, i Political Mkctixu iy Maryland : Threatened by Soldiers.—Ou last riot r rd y* ** district primary meeting iu .
