their characteristic entertainments at Bircbakd
Hall this evening. They have two full sets of

Synopsis of Saturday's Report.
The following contains all of any interest of
Saturday's Telegraphic reports:
The schooner John Roche, of New York, is
reported seised by the Secessionists on James
river ana converted into a war vessel.
A schooner loaded with provisions for Savan
nah, was seized in the Delaware river by the

had been summoned by the Government

It is reported that a deputation of Virginians
and Marvhuiders waited on the President on
Wednesday last, and demanded a cessation of
costumes untu alter tne session oi Congress.
The President's answer was prompt, decided and
negative. One of the deputation said 75,000
Marylandere would contest the passage of troops
over her soil, to which the President replied that
he presumed there was room enough on her soil
to bury 75,000.
Dr. Garnett, of Va., son-in-law of Governor
Wise, has sent his wife and family North for
gaiety. Senator V igtall, aid to Beauregard, has
sent his mother and children to Boston, and they
are now residing near that city, to remain dur
ing the southern rebellion. The Traitors evi
dently have no confidence in their chivalry.
Gov. Hicks and Gov. Letcherjointly proposed
to the Government to guarantee the safety of the
Capital. The Government declined the propo
sition, evidently to their great disgust.
Reports say that the Secessionists in North
Carolina are carrying all before them without
reference to law or order. They have driven off
many people who uo not sympathise with tne
movement, and have threatened boldly to mob
and hang ex-Governor Gilmore, who is persist
ently resisting the tide of passion.
Montgomery correspondence says that Jeff.
Davis is making active preparations to attack
Washington. Troops are leaving for Virginia
ns fast as they can be supplied with arms.
2,000 troops desperadoes in citizens dress are
being raised to go to Baltimore and Washing
ton, to secretly operate in an attack on the rear
of Washington. The Confederate States are in
a stale of anarchy. Business prostrated. Think
ing people are less confident. Country is in a
state ot mob law and people are escaping.
A dispatch from Harrisburg states that: The
forces at Harper's Ferry believe that Gen. Beau
regard is at Richmond with 7,000 troops. The
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad is conveying' pro
visions to Baltimore. Much quiet talk has
been had among leading persons at Harris
burg relative to tapping the Columbia dam on
the Susquehanna river, thus cutting off the wa
ter from the tide water canal to stop the supplies
of provisions from reaching Baltimore by that
route. The feasibili ty of tapping the artificial
lake for supplying Baltimore is openly talked of.
Saturday Night's Report.
Frederick, Maryland, April 27th. The Gov
ernor's Message briefly details the startling
events which induced him to assemble the Leg
islature. He had labored earnestly to induce
the President to forego the purpose of pawing
troops through Maryland; but the reply was
that a military necessity rendered it unavoida
ble. He had refused Gen. Butler consent to land
forces at Annapolis, and protested against his
taking possession of Annapolis Railroad. Not
withstanding our most learned and intelligent
citizens admit the right of the Government to
transport troops over the road, it is evident that
a portion of Maryland oppose the exercise of
this right. His convictions are that the safety
of Maryland lies in preserving a neutral posi
tion between the North and South. Maryland
has violated no right of either section, and has
done all it can to avoid impending war. He ho
ped that Maryland might act as mediator. He
cannot counsel Maryland to take sides against
the General Government until it shall commit
outrage upon her which will justify her in re
sisting its authority. Our geographical posi
tion alone forces us to this. This had been all
the while the groundwork of his policy, and he
was convinced that it had been approved by a
large majority of the people. He appeals to the
Legislature not to sever the bond between Ma
ryland and the Government by passion, but to
act with prudence and Christian-like temper.
The Senate passed a bill prohibiting the issue
of notes under 65. under rtenaltv. The SenAte
adopted an address to the people of Maryland,
stating that the Legislature will not pass an
act of Secession, but if the people desire it, it
will give them an opportunity of declaring for
themselves their future destiny. The House
ha not acted thereon, but ha appointed a Com
mittee to report an act calling a convention.
Scott, of Baltimore, is the chairman.
Philadelphia, April 27th. A steam Tug pur
sued and captured the Tug W. B. Ramsey, in
the Delaware Bay. She had recently been pur
chased here, supposed for the Southern Confed
eracy. The prize was handed to the Navy
Perryville, Md., April 27th. A Government
messenger left Washington at 1 o'clock this
morning, and reports the track this side of An
napolis Junction torn up by the Secessionists of
the vicinity for two miles. It will soon be re
paired. It wbb proposed this morning to move
5,000 troops to Washington.
J. S. Patten, of Massachusetts, bearer of dis
patches from Gen. Scott, arrived here. He says
the Commander at Harper's Ferry had given
assurances that Virginia would not allow any
attack on the Capital from her soil. This is
confirmed by gentlemen from Richmond as be
ins the sentiments of Governor Letcher.
No flags of any kind were allowed in Balti
more to-day in consequence of a flag demonstra
tion yesterday, and the unionists' determination
of keeping the.r's up.
Several Regiment passed Annapolis Junction
last night for Washington. 13,000 troops are in
the Capital, and 8,000 more on the way.

Junction, whore United States troops are pass
ing. Another Massachusetts volunteer died
this morning of his injuries.
Harrisburgh, April 27th. Five car loads of
fugitives from the South arrived here to-day.
Twenty-two Philadelphians from Richmond
also arrived. All had been workmen at the shot
and shell foundery at that city. They went
there five weeks since and now return on a pass
given by Gov. Letcher. They report that a
Philadeiphian is engaged in modernizing 3,000
old flint lock muskets for Virginia. Reports of
travelers from Baltimore indicate a strong dis
position among conservatives to rise and take
the power in their own hands from the mob.
The restoration of Federal allegiance is confi
dently predicted. The despatch about rails be
ing torn upon the Railroad between Annapolis
and Washington is thought to be incorrect,
