Correspondence of the Press. Letter from the Maine 23d. Edward’s Ferry, Md., Jan. 4,1863. Dear Press:—Nothing of particular im portance has transpired within the limits of this command since our unceremonious leave- I taking of Offutt's Cross Roads two weeks ago. The 23d has, however, changed its headquar ters from Mnddy Branch to this place, about 10 miles, aud Co. B now occupies the spot made vacant by said change, at Muddy Branch : Co. G, Capt. Lamb, is at Seneca, Lock 23. Companies D and I are at Great Falls; all the rest are here at hea dquarters. The sanitary condition of the regiment is rapidly improving. During the last two weeks we have lost four, viz: Barton A. Field of Lewiston, Co. A, Dec. 23d, of Typhoid fever; Luther P. Barnard of Bridgton," Co. B, Dec. 24th, Typhoid fever; Forrester Brackett of Bridgton, Co. B, Dec. 25th, Pneumonia; and Edwin Q. Charles, of Lovell, Co. B, Jan. 3d, Pneumonia following the measles. The three first died in hospital at Offutt’s Cross Roads, Mr.Charles died in hospital here. There are various rumors afloat in camp which cause apprehensions of a rebel raid in this vicinity. Unless, however, the rebels come in good force, they will meet with no slight rebuff in their persistent endeavors to woo “my Marylnnd’’ to their infernal coalition. There is here a brigade of four regiments of infantry, a battalion of cavalry consisting of three companies of “Scott’s SHJU,’’ and an effec tive, well drilled battery of light artillery. Tlie brigade lias headquarters at Poolesville, five miles distant. The 23d is only half a mile from the river. There is much evidence of a strong seces sion sympathy among the residents ol Pooles ville and vicinity. There are at this time, ma ny Marylanders from this section in the rebel army. The noted cavalry chief, Capt White, formerly lived here, and it was a port ion of his force, whicli a few weeks ago, made a dash over here, and captured a squad of Scott’s cavalry, killed the brave Sergt. Stiles, and committed sundry depredations upon prop erty. Our several places of encampment before coming up here, have been in what is said to be tlie poorest portion of the state, compara tively barren aud unproductive, though show ing occasionally, signs of enterprise, aud at tempts at improvement. The general appear ance of things, however, gave over-sum for frequent disparaging remarks on the part of the soldiers, and some of the officers, like this, “Well, I haven’t seen anything round here worth fighting very hard for.” But, since coming here, the feeling and opinion are chan ged, and I hear numerous expressions of ad miration of the “maguifleent farms,” “splendid dwellings,” etc., about Poolesville, and all over this region. It is, indeed, one of the love liest sceues I ever witnessed, to stand on an elevation, and view for miles the panorama of fields, woods, mountains and river. Even now, during the first days of January, a season which to us Northerners is suggestive only of cold feet, frost-bitten noses and deep snows, we eqjoy such fine weather, and behold so ma ny bean ties in nature that one finds it a succes sion of delights to take a trip on the canal boat ulong tire banks of the Potomac. Com ing from below yesterday, I found it very pleasant lying on the cabin deck in the warm sunlight, without more than my overcoat around me. The river is alive with wild ducks swimming and flying in every direction, and so tame, that one can almost catch them with the band Our pickets complain sorely Ire cause they are Interdicted from shooting any game. Firing, except at targets when dis charging the pieces a"er being on guard duty, Is prohibited. Lookiug at the country about here as it is, and comparing its present conditi'eu witli that of Virginia, only a few miles across the river, one caunot help congratulating the people of this State upon their rescue by tire Govern ment from the jaws of secession. But, alter ail, when we feel that eveu yet these murder ous jaws are yawning to engulf Maryland, and that the citizens an; so infatuated with the sophistries and falsehoods by which the arch traitors attempt to j ustify the rebellion, that they would, many of them, welcome with open arms the triumphant entrance of King Jell's army into their borders, it is with but little heart that we offer our congratulations. Secession is often considered as attributable to the doctrines iuculcated in the Southern mind by John C. Calhoun, no farther back than thirty years ago. But whoever reads carefully the record of the struggle which the advocates of free government had with the champions of slavery in the constitutional convention, and the numerous writings of Jef ferson and Madison relating to that subject, hatred ol popular freedom had then grown to an alarming extent in the minds of the South ern aristocrats, which is now nothing less than a tornado of madness and destroying passion. The opposition which distinguished members from the South offered to the union of I lie confederacy alter the Revolution, except with the most solemn and erprexne<i guarantees to the slave power, In the Constitution, nearly prevented any successful formation of a Union at all. But why do we so often bring up these long gone by incidents, and, breaking over the boundary of the present, search for facts of an cient date to illustrate or explain circumstan ce* of to-day ? Because the patriot, contem plating the deplorable state of the nntiou, quaking from center to circumference with warlike and deadly passion, asks himself wheth er the cause is to be found in events ol recent date, or of the far [last. The slaveholders uni versally attribute the rebellion, not merely to the abolitiou excitement in the North, hut to the determination to establish forever a gov ernment of absolute despot ism ; a government whose corner stone i« the blood, soul, and sin ew of a man—not the representative of a dis tiuct race, as some very plausibly claim, but a race utilise any other ever before existing, whose life-blood, whose love of country, earth ly interests, and eternal hopes are the same j with the oppressors. A slaveholder told me the other day that , “the history of the world tells of no nation j wherein two distinct races lived together for | a length of time peaceably. One race,” he 1 said, “must always be in subjection to the oth j er.” I did not deign to controvert this asser tion, Imt suggested that the application of his I cherished theory to the existing relations be | tween the free and slave population of the ; .South, are hardly consistent with facts, as the “distinction” of blood or race noticeable in l the slave population, was generally on the side ot the white race. The theories which the ad vocates of slavery eliminate from Scripture, i lrom history, and the assumed superiority of ! one race to another, do not even stand the ' test of farts, such a« can tie produced by thou ! sands in connection with slavery in the United i States. The mass of those who compose the Union army arc daily witnessing tile effects of the j system which is blighting with its accursed j breath the lairest portion of the creation; and | they cannot hut l>e thoroughly impressed with a sense of the titter inconsistency of fighting for the Union, and trying to save, at the same time, such a rotten ami offensive system as ne gro slavery. Sometimes you hear an individual—he may lie one wtio professes to settle the whole mat ter with one essential thrust at the abolition ists. or he may lie an otliecr, striped ami strap pedand pompous; you hear such an one de scanting upon tile rebellion ami its causes, the probable result, Ac., to the country; you un ostentatiously enter into the conversationgiml inadvertently, though in keeping with the ar gument. you propose the freedom of the slaves j in the South, in order to crush the rebellion. | Presently your dogmatical friend or the one I with the trappings on, appears offended; you persevere in the attempt to establish your premise, when you are cut short with the ster eotyped fling at the d—d abolitionists, or tliat formidable and conclusive argument ( ?) so of ten heard. “I)-n a nigger any how!” It is unpopular with a class. I find, to be an abolitionist, I suppose because it implies a love of humanity, ami a desire to see universal jus- | tice triumph over oppression ami wrong. It j is considered by some persons to be no ciedit : to a man's head or heart to feel any sympathy with the downtrodden who are continually before him in their poverty and degradation. So he it. Let those persons reflect that it is not wise to set at naught the counsels ofexpe rience, nor the invariable lessons which histo- j ry teaches; and though the wicked and the oppressor, may flourish lor a season, and “lord it" over the weak with a high hand, yet the day of restitution will surely come. The bond man and all those who suffer wrong, will lie avenged, and restored to the dignity and rights of manhood. Scbai.tebx. SAIL CLOTH.
