TIIU AXNIVK11SARY.
To-day la tho annlyeriary of tbo flrtt fight
for our national lodepcnde&CQ at Lexington, of
Ibe battle or Ccrro Gordo, and of tho flrat blood
shed of the rebellion a rebellion which U de
clared by Ita leaden to be "a protcttt agalnit
tho in la taken tWlUiatlon of the age.11 We re
member well when, three years ago, t'Ce Cth
MaaeachnsctlA , regiment marched through
Washington street, at a few hoars' notice, to
the defence of Washington city, and how we
wcro thrilled on receiving the dispatches re
latin? to the riot In the streets of Baltimore.
Thcrowas lo prctencothat Maryland had
seceded, or intended to secede, but cerUln ruf
fians given over to Infatuation In the Interest
of slavery disputed the passage of our troops
through that State for tho defence of the
national capital. One or tho liaders In that
riot, FMHp Cashmeyer, has turned traitor to
Jeff Davis, who bad rewarded him with an
official position for his treason to tho Govern
ment, and Is now Imprisoned In Castle Thun
der. Others havo come to a bad end, while
Baltimore to-day stands conspicuous before
tho country for her loyalty and her lofty patri
otism Instead of mobbing our soldiers, a
grand Sanitary Fair occupies the attention of
the city and of the whole State of Maryland.
Wo cannot give our readers anything moro
pertinent to the subject of this anniversary
man some account of tho proceedings Insugu
rating tho i.r, which took placo In Baltimore
last evening, the President of the United States
participating therein.
In tho afternoon a grand military parado and
review camo off, and the day was generally ob
served as a holiday. At six o'clock the Prcal
dent arrived, and was escorted to tho residence
of Win. T. Albert, Esq., President of tho Mary
land Btato Fair Association. In tho evening
the Fair building was opened, and after a
rervent prayer by Bishop Whi.tlncly.iLi, -Gov
ernor Bradford dellvored an eloquent, patrl
otic, and highly appropriate address. Wc ex
tract from tho Baltimore Amtncan a report of
the subsequent proceedings:
RBVAKXS Or rBZSXDKXT LINCOLN.
After the cheering had ended, and afier,
with great exertions, order had been secured
everybody being anxious to too tho President
he said, substantially!
LaJ'ui and Oentlement Calling It to mlud
that we are In Baltimore, we caunot fall to
pole thatthe world moves. Applause. Look
Ing upon the many people I see assembled here
to servo as they best moy tho soldiers of tho
Union, U occurs to ins that thrco years a&o
iuu.e .muicn coma not pass through ualtl
more. 1 would say, blessings upon the men
who havo wrought these changes, and the U
!Im who have assisted them. Applauso.
This chango which has taken place In Baltl.
moro Is Part only of a far wider chanro that Is
isklng placo all over the country.
When the war commenced, threo years aeo.
) one expected that It would last this Ion
nnd no one supposed that tbe Institution of
slavery would be materially aliccted by it But
here we arc. (Applause.) Tbe war U not tl
ended, aud slavery has been very materially
affected or Interfered with. I Loud applanse.l
Bo true 1b it that roan proposes and Qod dis
poses. Tho world Is in want of a good definition of
the word liberty. We all declare ourselves to
be for liberty, but wo do not all mean tbe ssme
loioff, come mean mat a msn can do as ho
pleases with himself and his property, Ap
plause. With others It means tbst some men
can aoaaiuejjpicuowuuoinermon and other
men's labor. Kacb of these things are called

This satno difference of opinion prevails
among some of she people of the North. But
tbe people of Msrvisud have recentlr been
doing something to properly define the mcan-
idroi iDtyworu, anu i manic mem irom ino
bottom or my heart for what they havo dono
and are doing. Applause.
It Is not very becoming for a President lo
make a speech at gTcat length, but thcro Is a
painful rumor afloat In the country, in refer
ence to which a few words shall be aald. It Is
reported that there has been a wsnton masss
creofsome hundreds of colored soldiers at
Fort Pillow. Tennessee, during a recent en
gagement there, and he thought It fit to explain
some facta In relation to the affair. It is said
by somo persons that the Government Is not In
this matter doing Ita dnty. At tbe commence
ment of the war it was doubtful whether black
men would bo used as soldiers or not. Tbo
matter was examined Into very carefully, and
after mature deliberation, tho whole matter
resting as It were with himself, he In bis judg
ment decided that they should. Applause.
He was responsible for the act to the Ameri
can people, t a Christian nation, to tho future
historian, and, abovo all, to his God, to "whom
he would have one day to render an account of
his stewardship. (Applause. lie would now
say that In his opinion the black soldier should
havo the same protection as tho white soldier,
and he would have It. Applause. It was an
error to say tbst tho Government was not act
ing In the matter. The Government has no
direct evidence to confirm tho reports in exist
ence relative to this massacre, but he himself
believed tho facts In relation to It to bo as
stated. When tho Government docs know the
facts from official sources, and they provo to
substantiate the reports, retribution will bo
surely given. Applause. 1
What Is reported, ho thought, would make
a clear case. If it is not true, then all such
stories are to be considered as false. If proved
true, when tho matter Is thoroughly examined,
what shape Is to bo given to the retribution?
Can we lake tho man who was captured at
Vicksburg and shoot him for the victim of this
massacre 7 If It should happen that It was the
act of only ono roan, what course Is to be pur
sued then I It was a matter requiring cartful
examination and deliberation, and If H should
be substantiated by sufficient evidence all
might rest assured that retribution would bo
had. Applauso.1
At the conclusion of the address of tho
President, some enthusiastic Individual pro
posed " three cheers for the next President of
the united b talcs," which were given with
xest. Frequently during bis remarks ho was
Interrupted by the applause of tho audience,
particularly when he enunciated the policy of
tho Government to retaliate for the brutal and
cowardly murder of any of Its soldiers white
or black.
PRESENTATION TO MRS. UOVERSOn BnAPrOUP.
At this part, Hon. Senator Wilson, of Mass-
tho President, W. J. Albert, Ksq., vthq Intro
duced him to tbe audience, and lu a neat and
brief address, presented Mrs. Governor Brad-
rord, president or tno Ladies' Organization,
with a magnificent Chinese silk shawl, on be
half of 31 r. Tobey, chairman of the Boston
branch of iho Christian Commission, and other
gentlemen of that city.
hemakkb or art. Wallace.
Cries of " Wallace." " Wallace." were made
In several parts of tho hall, and in response Mr.
Albert Introduced Geu. Wallace, who said.
Ladles and gentlemen, 1 have been under fire
a number of times, but I would beg you alt to
believe mo as telling tho truth, wt en 1 say that
my heart never beat faster than It docs now on
the present occasion. President Lincoln gave
me a commission m o rears ago as a Major Gen
eral, to fight not to speak, and I vsould beg to
bo excused on that account from eajln,; any
thing further In hla presence.
President Lincoln remarked that hu might
probably soon get up a big fight for him.

A good loolilng young widow who "bosses"

with a notorious rebel bushwhackor who has
committed several murders of Unionists and is
now con&ned In the Wheeling Jail. Ills nsma
Is George Dusky, a son of tho notorious Dan
Dusky, and the widow's name Is Mary lirlggs.
Mary was allowed to carry delicacies to George
until sbo was detected in attempting to pass
something of a contraband nature through tbe
bars of his cell, after which she was debarred
by the Jailor from sbo premises.
Lsst Wednesday night, about 10 o'clock, tha
Jailor heard a noise on the outside of the south.
era wall of tha prison, and went round there
with a lantern, when be discovered a psreel on
tbe ground. While in the act of picking up
the mysterious package, the widow Brlggs
alighted on his back from tho wall, which was
twelve or fifteen feet high, and disputed his
possession of the property In tho fall her
right leg was broken Just above the ankle, but
she struggled manfully, and In tho contest a
bottle of nitric acid was broken, and the con
tents spilled upon tbo Jailor aniLMrs. Brlggs,
both of whom were stained and burned. The
valiant shscesh finally esnk exhausted, and was
carried Into tbe Jail and placod under surglcsl
treatment.
The Jailor upon examining tha parcel found
that It contained a bottlo of chloroform, a bot
tle of nitric add, a chisel, a box of stool pens
and two love-letters from Mrs. Brlggs, a copy
of tha Frcanan?t Journal ana a copy of tho
Cincinnati Enquirer!
Tbo Wheeling InUlligcntir esys that tout Is a
word of hardly sufUclent strength to dcscrlbo
onu of the letters. The lnrstuated woman had
climbed to the wall with a ladder, and was
about to attach tno packago to a long pole and
extend It to tho window of her Dusky's cill,
when alio dropped It, and was thus discovered.
Klnjc Cotton Discrowned.
Thu following extract from tbo I.ondon cor
respondenco of the Boston ComrnonwtoiiA Is
significant :
Tho embarro ou cotton bv which tho Rich
mond authorities hoped still lo Influence tho
action of England concerning the Confederacy,
was announced here under circumstance, which
caused a laogh to pass the rounds of all the
Boards of Trade. It coincided with the newa
that tho Indian cotton crop would not bo less
than 3.000,000 bales; that a first Instalment of
oG7,00-J bales wcro already on tho sea from
China and India; that a steady working for
five days In tha week on Surat cotton was
already secured in the factorios of Lancashire;
that for tho first time slnco tbe fsll of Sumter a
steady decline In the price of raw material (In
cluding American) bad setlni that tbe cotton
Board of Lancashire had, under the cheerful
prospect, changed from weekly to fortnightly
meetings; and that, (best of all) this meant
the grander success of the perpetual dlecnthral
ment of tbe cotton market from the South and
slavery. A writer In tbe TiUyraph (a paper
bitterly hostllo to tha North) says or tha Con
federate embargo 1 "Tha South cherishes a fond
delusion. Cotton Is no longer king at Rich
mond, and this latest action of tbo Confedrate
Government sounds more like a table-rapping
by bis spirit than a genuine edict of tho mon-
arcu wuo was uuco au-puwenui in Virginia
and the couuty palatine. Cotton Is now a
democratic power domiciled throughout every
region of the tropics."

Mr. Dawes had had 111 luck in three selections
of voung men lnfluentlally connected, well
bred, well educated. They had failed and been
sent away from the academy within tha first
year. He was determined now to search the
highways and byways for one t. confer tho
cherished opportunity upon. Having acci
dentally learned of an Irish lad In the farming
town of Cheshire, who had sucked the schools
of tbe village dry of all tbelr intellectual food,
and hungered for mro, he sought blm out, and
found him shoveling sand with his father, a
common day laborer.
After some palns-taklnir ha cot tbo father to
understand what West I'oint was, and that he
proposed to send his boy there for tho best edu

that most of tha cadets wero sons of rich men,
