But our ruler* appear to hare been -mitten with a Uiud ■M*a even won* than judicial. They would let the reeoeant Stale* and the world tee that we had still a govern meat They wduhl coerce the receded State* into obedience. To thia end, Mr. Lincoln. |n defiance of *ll law or Constitution *ud in contravention of th* clearest policy, called out ha* *#renty-fiv* ihoooond men to crash the rebellion on tb* Onlf. Al though he knew they were wdentnly pledged to resist coercion to th# la*t **• tremity, he had the impudence to a*k the Slave State*, which had remained loyal fen the Union np to that moment, for their quota of troops to carry out hi* plane of •nhjngalion. Virginia, North Carolina. Tennessee and Arkanea* answered hi* demand by pawing •■rdinance* of scc*s aiun. Missouri, Kentucky and even Ma ryland Bally refused to give him a man to carry on the war. The men were obtain ed. however, and the war commenced in At what coat h ha* been prose cuted. after what fashion and with what result, are very well known to our rea ders. The Confederate Stales have not only maintained themselves at all point* they have thought proper to defend, but •) latest account* were in poweeemoo of three-fourth* of the great state of Misaon ri and were slowly eating their way to the very heart • Kentucky. Hut it ia neith er, we think, to the success of Beauregard nor Price that the change tu public sen timent in Kurope ami especially in Eng land ia to be attributed. As we have stated b*fipe. that sentiment in the be ginning of the war wae strongly favora ble to the success of the Federal policy and by no nation in Europe was it more strongly or unequivocally expressed than by England. It is now impossible to open an Journal of influence without finding at a glance that a grant change has come over the public mind of the English people. Tbs English Govern •i nt pretend . of cour'e, to a decent indif ference about American affairs, but it ia not difficult to discover into what channel its sympathies are now flowing. What has alienated from the Federal canac th* respect-and good will of the greatest and freest nation in Europe Y Tbs apologists of Mr. Lincoln are ready with an answer . •uch as it is. England is starving for cot ton. which she ia prevented by the Fsder nl blockade from obtaining. Very differ ent are the reaaons given by th* leading liberal minds of England for thia aliena tion. and we submit that they are entitled to as much weight and respect aa are the reasons aarigntif by the Lincoln apologist above. It is claimed foe the people of England that their sympathies are on the aids of Constitutional governments and have ever hash. They regard the worst Constitution that ever existed aa infinitely Utter than the best despotism, ahd among all despotisms, they assert that the unfits vy despotism is the worst. They charge that the Federal government has Woken np all constitutional authority, wherever it has had the power, and snbstitntfd In Ha stead the despotism of th* saltier, and maraom. that this dsapatiam now pre vails in every State that acknowledges its authority. They declare that the Feder al executive has aaiard powers unknown to the Constitution which ho had sworn before God to protest and defend—that he has swept away local authorities em masse, because their proceedings, though ia strict conformity to law. wars dlatateftti to Urn nod has advisers—that he has broken down er overridden the moat soared securities for 4hs protection of the liberty and proper ty of the rititen—that he has had man seised and imprisoned on tU mast groundless chargee and-prevented all ro fief by suspending the writ of Jifow Chpsi that by Us aouuaal or authority, the induce tial wdspsndsnt prom has Wen gagged and lettered by the I Harvest and mow inhuman meehaiuam, and that human life itaelf. by the suspension of all lav or regular authority, has become the sprat and play thing nf military caprice. But ] above all and beyond all. they charge that jhu has fil'd an Mettle stain nprai j mm** itself and has made represents j five governments a bye-word and a mocke ry to the undo of the earth. These are a few of the reasons assigned by the prose aad leading Wilnamm wf England for the great ohangu which has warns over her people. What aueeaaa was not able to accomplish for the Confederate States abroad, the tyranny of Mr. Lincoln has consummated. originally friend ly to the Federal Govern sent, is now tnmiaraVsbly on tie rid* of the Confede rate Staiaa. Hatred of iajastiee, ao in telfigent love for- Conatilntional liberty and sympathy for the victims of Federal " oppression, have .influenced her feelings and will determiae her future action. To oa, alight ihotjgh it be. it ia aome con solation to rememWr, that Maryland baa not suffered slugelhr in vain. The story of her wrong* has been wafted across the waters, ha* penetrated the tab-, mete of statesmen/has touched the heart of mighty nations, 1 eliciting, wherever it has been heard, the warmest sympathy foi her sufferings and jtho highest admiration for that unbroken public spirit which she ( has opposed to th* wuaal that could be inflicted by such % slave as Hicks and •ueb a tyrant as Lincoln. '‘REMEMBER that every man in Ma ryland who votes the “Peace Ticket*’ is I aiding the rebels, and is a traitor to the Govarament. It would bo perfectly right to punish all who so vote.”— AnnajMilit Gazette. Wc clip the above paragraph from the last week’s issue of the Annapolis Gazett*, an administration Journal and the organ of Gov. Hioka. It s*cms to be the g**od for tune of the editor of this journal to lie gifted with a wind so pliant and principles so easy as to be always on the right side at the right time. Indeed, he reminds us not a little of certain noblemen and clergy, who, during the reign of the Prince of Orange, Justified their desertion of the Hones of f* Visit upon the ground, that the Scripture* commanded submission to the ruling Power. These men held posts of honor and profit, under the new dynas ty, and here again we are struck with the uituilo. Our broCSer, of the Gazette, haw had the State priming once—at a time, we are sure, when {Republicanism did not sway W council*-—and i* now, wc are I told, a recipient of the Federal bounty. Six thousand Federal bayonets now en compass the House at Annapolis, and, it i* stated,"that twenty four thou sand more arc soon to be added to the number. With these formidable means of protection, it uyy be well for the editor of the Gazette to threaten an oppressed and down-trodden people with Federal venge ance. With this security for hi* personal safety, it may be devrr in him to attempt, by a specie* of iitimidariou, to prevent | honest men from pasting an honest vote, but the day may come, when the Gazette man will leara, tbjst in revolutionary times it does not always; pay to play the cour tier. and that the(r are time* even when it is not safe to play the demagogue. He should remember Ibtt Baltimore city was oocc a little too warm for his friend. Davis, and that the time may oome whei the soil of Maryland way prove a little too warm for the apostates and time-server* that are now exerting themselves to tighten the bonds of servitude with which her people are fotjtered. It will b* seen from a card in our ad vertising columns that Geo. F. Maddox. Esqr., who had bpra named in a previ ous issue af oar paper aa an independent candidate for tie Legislature, has dcelin r ad to permit his sum to be used for that purpose. Fraueia L Mattingicj. Kaqr , who was brought out in our last last issue aa a candidate for the Cooimusioocra' Court, authorises ua to oiata, that he ia not a candidate aad that the announce ment was mads without hia knowledge or consent.

Nothing, we feed confident, has donej mure to degrade the Wellington govern- i meut at home qr abroad than its shame less attempt to hire the sword of Ganip j baldi and to recruit an Italian legios j for the American War. The leading, English journals—headed by the great Loudon Thunderer—are outspoken in i their contempt and indignation of the' humiliating negotiation. Can it be pos sible, they ask, that the Model Rqub- ; lie has fallen so low as to offer a bo. us j to foreign mercenaries to fight its bat- j ties v Is this the same government I which put a peremptory stop during, the Crimean war to all attempts of the | allies to recruit men within its jurisdie- i tion and which rudely dismissed a Brit* ( irh minister because he connived at i them? On this side the water, among men who have the honor of their coun try at .heart, the indignation is. perhaps, more heartfelt, andtqnally emphatic. On each recurrence of the anniversary of our independence, we have gone into “conniptions” over the Hessians whom I George 3rd subsidized at 11 cents a j head to conquer us. But a change has ' j come over the spirit of our dreams.— |We have found out that foreign mer cenaries are not half to horrible as in the days of “Auld Lang Syne”—hence the effort to hire Garibaldi and his Ital ian cohorts. The refusal of the Italian ! General to accept the ieni|>ting offer of j the Washington Government has raised 1 him much in our opinion. We are now j convinced that he des not altogether he- I long to the Dugald Dalgetty school of he roes but that he fights fur principle as well as for pay. If it is humiliating- to reflect that our Government has abased itself in this matter, it is some consolation to re-1 member that it has abased iUelf in vain. News from the War. Prom our Baltimore city exchanges, we 1 learn that great excitement existed in ' Washington, on Saturday last, in conse quence of an advance of the Confederates, in large force, in the direction of Prospect Hill. On the following day,' they were also seen west of L*w;nsville, tngre t bree. and under such circumstances as to iudove the belief that they meditated an attack upon the Federal lines. The Federal* are reported to have formed in line of battle, hut no fight is reported. From Sunday last up to Tuesday evening, however, heavy and continuous firing has been heard in the direction of Washington, sod it is rumored, both here and in Baltimore, that there baa been some severe fighting, with disastrous results to the Federal arm*. We also have private and reliable intelli gence from Wasbingtohn, stating that there has been a fight sad that the Feder al* have been signally defeated, with a ( ]nas probably greater than that suffered at Ball Run. The Washington correspon dent of the New York World, states that the present and next week are “big with the foie of the Republic,” and beta are be ing made in New York city, that the first of November will find Johnson defeated. Simultaneous with the overthrow of Jehn- I JJ!I - l fc " | mm. blows aro to be struck in Kmiwsky.

Late intelligence from Hiseuuri confirms i the report of tbe evacuation uf Lexington 1 and the retreat of Prase. He is reported •to be seventy miles south of Froemont. ■ and making for the Arkansas herder. By I another report, it ia claimed that he will j form a junction with McCulloch and give Freemont battle; though the prevailing . impression seems to be that be will codes*-

j vor to draw Freemont into South Wes >lern Missouri, and thus enable Pillow, j Jeff. Thompson and Hardee to seise upon Cairo, St. Louis and other important | stratsgelie points in the central and north ern section of tbe State. It is staled that ' Freemont has flatly refused to obey Presi dent Lincoln upon the proclamation ques- i tion, or Gen. Scott’* order to release Got. I j Blair, and it is even hinted that he will | , refuse to surrender bis command to his ! successor, should he be dismissed by the ' Government. There is nothing new from Kentucky, t-iher than Federal reporta that the Un ion men of the State are flocking to the Federal standard. Other reports show that the fighting men of the State are all uu the ride of the South, and that whilst | aged Unionists are consulting and plan- ' • mug f<r tlie success of the Federal cause. , their suns arc enrolling themselves under ' the Couf* derat • banner. Wc learn, from llatteias Inlet, that the ! ! Fcderals attempted to laud a force upon 1 1 the North Carolina coast during the past ( | week, but were repulsed with an ackuowl |cd loss of 50 men. The Confederate loss. ; however, is, as usual, estimated at a much I high figure. # There is nothing new, of importance, from Fortress Monroe or Western Virgin ju. I A desperate and bloody fight is report -led to have taken place on Santa Rosa Is land . between Billy Wilson’s Zouave* i i and about 1000 Confederates. It is stat- 1 |cd that the Zuuaves fought bravely, but | | were routed with terrible loss. Tbs* fight I look place on the Bth instant, and it is j stated that all the tents of the Zouaves were destroyed, their cannon spiked, and | a Urge amount of rations, equipments, store* ami ammunition captured. Tin* | Confederates report a loss of 40 killed and | u proportionate number wounded. ; Tha Court of Appeals. i Wherever the Unionists have control in 1 the State or wherever (hey have seen the slightest chance of success, they have uniformly nominated for the judicial office, from the highest grade to the lowest. If they have not nominated in thia district, it is because they are very well aware, that a nomination would concentrate the whole ■ strength of the State Right party against 1 their nominee, and they have sense enough to know that the result would be disas trous to their hopes. Nevertheless, it is very well understood among them who they arc to support for Judge, ami, trust ing tu hi* personal popularity and tbe sb j sencc of all combination on the part of the j State Right men of the district, they thus I hope to effect the success of their favorite, j There is only one way that wc know of to i defeat thi* well-laid Yankee project, and i that is, for the State Right men of the dis trict to concentrate their strength upon one of their own party. It is too late now tu call a Convention uf the Stale Right party, i but concentration may be bad without it. ! From past services, we claim that St. Mary’s is entitled to name a candidate for the Court of Appeals. Robert Ford, Esqr., has already been mentioned through our 1 columns f*r this position. If he will consent to be a candidate and the State Rights men of the district will unite upon him, i we have little doubt that he will be elected iby a handsome majority. But if the thing is to be done at all, it must be done at once. Will Mr. Ford consent to serve, and what say yr>u, gentlemen of the State Right puny?

Her character was perfect and beau tiful, and well worthy the imitation of relative, friend and acquaintance. Tub Stats ConpTaoixaseuiP. — The Court of Appeals of Maryland has affirmed the decision of the Circuit Court of Hartford county, to the contested ease of the office of State Comptroller. The decision ia ia favor of A. Liogan Jarrott, Esq., who is thus fully placed in the responsible posi tion to which ho was declared to be elected by tbo last Legislator*.

There is no i mention that am exchange nf t eqnnxjmt number had Item demanded Surely *ut ficieut consideration has not been given to this subject hy the Washington au thority*. Th**y must fail to appreciate: how profonnd an anxiety prevails among f i the friends f ur men now iu tho hands j of the enemy in regard to their wcl-j fere; how ir.ttc'i suffering exist* became j of their absence; how much suffering the prisoners themselves endure. They . must also fell to understand how preju dicial au effect this apparent insauribili- . ty of the Government to the fete of it>. faithful soldiers has upon the enrollment | of vuluntcers. Thin influence i hmmrn > Itu be more art ire than any other in dis couraging enlist in* uts. That this iusensi jbility isonly apparent it is needless to say. j “In the provisions made for the com- i j fort of troops, for the maintenance of dc- 1 ' started futNilit**. for tbo support of di*a- * ; bled soldiers, the Government has shown j the utmost tenderness for the welfare of | those whom war visit* with inevitable. discomfort and poverty.
