Teuucaaea and Kentucky, in the support of every measure looking to an "arnica 1 la' settlement oT'our difficult*-*, and the preservation of tha American Union. But, the North stubbornly re fused to make any concessions. and the Gulf Suit*, failing to obtain the riipii *itc guarantee* fi-r the inahitenance of ! their Constitutional rights in (hi* Union, made good ihir threat to with 'n a ft* m it. N*xt followed the inauguration of Mr. Lincoln and a declaration of cotr cive war against the seceded States.>- The conflict, which took place at Sum ter, King followed by an official publi cation of the "riot act," and by Mr Lincoln's procluiuatit.'ii, calling out a force to q:*ll the rebellion, the Border Slates—Maryland ami Kentucky except *d—true to the doctrine embodied in tbe resolution* of 1798. left the Union am: linked tb.ir fortunes with the Confedv race States. The dismemberment of the Uuiun, thru, had been consummated, through whose instrumentality it matters not, it was asundered beyond any pro bable hupc of reconstruction. The Un ion pa:ty had failed in its efforts to cf feet a compromise, and in its laudable attempt to preserve the Union. In the ofh*T B-irdor Stales, with the exception of ft few thousand in Nouh Western Vir ginia and Northern Missouri. am! som* i huckrarr* f*ttr{ttr iii Iwt Tcuucaect: and | North Carolina, the Union party ceased 1 their Ule aud delusive cry of Union, and i prepared l* defend their i tirothvrs’ Uou#-s I mvag.'a th # Mr. ! Lincoln was gathering together (o I sweep d. wn upon them. Bui now has it been in Maryland? The Union party here, which proved fo he in a considerable minority a year ago. when the noble old common wealth uf Virginia was Wiling for the Union, has graJually grown strong er since its traces have left the Virginia auil # nd has praven itself, under each ty ranic or oppressive act of the Washington Government, more and more the fawning and cringing component and all}* of Black Republicanism. At the late Congression al election, when the contest was one of peace or war—when ?hc issue of future reconstruction, base 1 upon proper Consti tutionsl guarantee* to the .South, was to be battled for—when Maryland had been subjected to wrong* and indignities to which no free people were ever before sub jected—when her soil bristled with Fed eral bayonets tuu her people had been outraged and plundered—'when the traitor Hick*, after betraying the honor aud in terest f the State, ld turned ‘‘rebel" aud again traitor—after this, all this, we find the Union party in Maryland armed with the strength and authority to cast her Congressional vote, with a single excep tion. iu favor of Northern aggres sion. in favor of Southern subjugation, and commendatory of the flagrant and un constitutional usurpations of Lincoln.— Since then, new aud accumulated insults have been heaped upon the people of Ma ryland. Her Legislator**, after being driv en from the Slate House, has b**e Mtppre*- sed and its members imprisoned—her ati acua have Wen dragged from their homes and incarcerated in felons’ cells and mur ky dungeons, in a distant and hostile State —her people have betn driven by thous ands into exile to escape the vengeance of Federal wrath nr suspicion—the freedom uf speech and press has been suspended in almost every section" of the Htate—the the civic function* of she city of Baltimore bare been supplanted by military authori ty, and. in ehert, flielw bw subjected to every species of wrong and degradation that a despotic and licentious ruler could visit upon lbs veriest dependents upon the * face of lbs earth. To all this, the Union party of the State not only give their as sent, but hold out threats of similar treat - meat to honest men, that they may be come converts by i jtimidstion. Hueh is the plan adopted by prominent Union or ! gf.us iu this State, aiwl by such mean# they expect u> secure the success of tha Union ticket, at ths spproaehing elect km.
