Opinions of the Southern . A uni Ted must be apparent now that All the slav Bolding states must unite in a solid Phalanx to resist the attempt of the Black Republican administration to subjugate them. It will not do now to talk of a Border slate confederacy or any other subdivision in the South. The Palm Pable policy of Lincoln is either to Suh duo All the slave states or to make such of them As have not yet seceded Bis instruments in coercing and conquering the states which have seceded. All the slave states then should be United As one Man to repel the hordes of Black republicans from their Borders. That a United South will come out of this conflict successfully we do or get permit ourselves to Doi if. Let us Only be United among ourselves and although it May a after years of privation and buffering we will yet come out of the conflict with our Honor untarnished and our liberties renter. The War in new the first blow has been struck and the Tocsin of War now sounds throughout the land. The treachery of the administration at Washington in holding out delusive promises of peace will he recollected for a moment and then forgotten in the necessity for prompt Active and vigorous measures for the defence of the South against the Northern invader. The first gun fired at the South will rally All her True sons to repel the Northern enemy. It is a lamentable necessity that forces us to protect ourselves from this attempt at our subjugation but it will to met with the True and traditional gallantry of our people. That the Southern confederacy can Ever be subdued is an event beyond All the Range of possibility. Let is nerve ourselves for the great duties and the responsibilities that Are before . 0. Crescent. Fighting for declaration of War against the Southern states is a Gross and flagrant usurpation. There is no authority Given by the Constitution to the Federal exc Cutie to make War at All. The Federal Conj Reed itself has no Power to make War upon the states. That Power was proposed to be granted in the convention which framed the and expressly and emphatically refused. The action of president Lincoln is therefore a palpable usurpation of dictatorial Power. It is a Clear invasion of the right of the people and the states and a subversion of Freo government. There is nothing Lefi for us but to fight for All that is dear to us. Every Man woman and child in the Commonwealth feel the Neoe Saily. The Issue is forced upon us. We Are compelled to five hts to fight either for deep Tum or for Freedom a to Side either with our enemies and oppressors or our friends and Kindred. The Northern president leaves us no alternative it is Liberty or extermination glory or the whig.

As it became put acc Tible a loud Eliout of Tiitu Siauni was sent up by fhe multitude and for several moments the air was rent with cheer upon cheer for the Southern hag. Some miscreant Here stole silently into the crowd and grasping at the aug staff Tore it partially in half when he was seized by the Throat by the Man who bore the Flag and would have been killed upon the spot had the police not saved him from to Weir vengeance. The shreds of Tho Flag were immediately caught up by the crowd and being tied upon the staff was again saluted with cheers. The most hitter taunts were thrown at the troops by Liose surrounding the hag Many of Wiliom declared that they should March behind it which they were compelled to do As will be shown by the sequel. A hush the arrangements having been perfected for a March the order was Given and the whole body made a movement towards in resident Street when those surrounding the Southern Flag made a bold and determined stand and refused to give an Inch to allow them to pass. Finding it impossible to proceed they wheeled around and started in an opposite direction when cries of a head them off were re echoed through the vast assemblage and a Rush was made to the Southern end of the depot. At this Point they were completely surrounded and for several minutes it was found to be impossible for them to move in any direction. Finally however tie body of military were formed into platoons four abreast when three or four of those in the rear were attacked and separated from their comrades. Here again the police who were untiring in their efforts to preserve tie peace rushed in and protecting the men enabled Vliem to regain their places in the ranks when the body again made a move and by to Weir Broad front aided by Tho police they lured a passage through the crowd.

An attack. When a out one Hundred Yards from the depot a second attempt was made by several Quot Union shr Ekerst to seize the Southern Flag and upon being attacked by the citizens they endeavoured to escape by retreating behind the ranks of the military. This action exase rated the entire mass of citizens to such an extent that an attack was immediately made upon the troops with stones and such missiles. As the attack began one of the soldiers a Man named William Batch from Massachusetts was seen to fall about Midway of the ranks having been stricken in the Hack with a Large paving Stone. As lie fell upon his Side into the Gutter Bis Musket was seized by a portion of the crowd apparently in a great state of exasperation who set upon him and before the police could prevent them beat the unfortunate northerner most unmercifully.

As the Man Batch Wasseen to fall the commanding officer of the troops eave a hurried order to the troops to a run a and dipping their Heads they were soon running at a rapid rate followed by the crowd who continued to throw stones into their midst As they re treated. When at the Corner of a resident and Stiles streets the crowd pressed closely upon them and rallying around them knocked Down two of the soldiers and seized their muskets which were very promptly delivered into the hands of the policemen who checked them in the attack. Une of the soldiers who was knocked Down managed to regain i feet and make his escape hot the second sacrifice that May be required of them for the maintenance of the Laws and the Honor of the american Flag will be obey really made. One was quickly picked up by an officer and carried to the Middle station House where he was protected from the crowd. The citizens shot Down. The body of troops continued to run with great rapidity across Bratt Street Bridge and As far As Commerce Street the Point where the Street had been torn up where an immense concourse of people assembled completely blockading the entire Street from one Side to Tho other. As the troops advanced towards them a tremendous shout of indignation resounded among them and determined resistance was depicted upon every countenance. Almost every Man of them provided himself with a huge paving Stone and As the troops advanced a Shower of the stones was poured into them. This had the Efi not of checking the Speed of the troops completely and for a few moments Tho citizens were decidedly victorious. Finding themselves hemmed in however the commanding officer of the troops ordered them to a tire a and the order was no sooner Given than several of the men Foremost in the ranks took deliberate aim and at the first fire a worthy Young Man named Francis x. Ward a member of the cite guard battalion fell to the Earth pierced by a Minnie Ball in the left Side of the Groin.

The or. Robinson a loudly called upon for a speech and in re pounding said that to would to god his voice could reach the thousands now assembled in the Square. But this Nas unnecessary. Tie blood which had this Day been spilt in our streets sealed the hearts of All Mary Landers. We now stand As a unit. Not another Northern Soldier shall pass Over our soil to defend the North Kern Jovern ment or the so called capital of the United states. He was Happy to inform them Liat the authorities of Mary Lanil had telegraphed North everywhere Liat no More troops could pass Bro ugly Baltimore.

I hey All were aware of the sad events of this Day. God knows no one More deeply deplored this state of affairs than he did. He did not be live in the Call made by the president of the United states.

He invoked them one and All Lor there was no division amongst us now to act like men and co operate with him in his endeavours to preserve the Public peace.
