THE RUTLAND WEEKLY HERALD: THURSDAY; MAY 10, isqi. THURSDAY, MAY 16, 1861. " O, VALIENT MEN !" Gen. Pillow, whose name is rather un pleasantly associated with a certain " ditch," in his call for Tenneessee troops for Jeff. Davis army, holds out the following very flattering inducement to Kentucky to join the Southern Confederacy. " They, the troops will not be required for the defense of the Southern coast ; Ken tucky and Virginia will be the fields of con flict for the future." The rebels cannot push the war farther Berth than Kentucky, as she is a border State, but Virginia has the slave State of Maryland lying between her and the free line, and she insists that the field of conflict shall be located there. Virginia holds rela tively the same position to Maryland that Tennessee does to Kentucky, and she wants Maryland for a battle-field, precisely as Gen. Pillow wants Kentucky. Thus discourses tbe Richmond Dispatch : The great strategic movement for the South in the present juncture, is the securing of Maryland to the Confederacy. The securing efSIaryland throws the border (the border as to military operations) beyond the confines ef Virginia. It opposes Maryland, as a breastwork and a shield for Virginia, against Vie assaults of the foe. The value of Mary land to Virginia, in military strategy, is illus trated by what is now transpiring at Balti more and Annapolis. But the fact of Mary land constituting sCfth a shield and bulwark, imposes upon Virginia and the South the cuty of supjwrting her with adequate forces. So the main object of the South, and espe cially of Virginia, " in securing Maryland to the Confederacy," is, that she may receive the bruises and the shock of the terrible con flict i.ow waging, rather than Virginia. V would be a great strategic movement for the South to throw the military operations " be yond the confines of Virginia." So says the Dispatch. But by the same reasoning, would it not be a very poor strategic movement for Maryland to invite the conflict to her own tordeis to make ot herself " a breast-work i and a shield (or Virginia against the assaults I c i ef the foe'" Is that the blood v feast to which I valient Virginia invites her sister State of Maryland Virginia, the mother of Presi dents whose every man is more than a Grecian or Roman hero proud, ancient, haughty, imperial, chivalrie, Virginia ; is she, now that the hour of the conflict approaches, so base and cowardly as to implore gallant little Maryland, to throw herself as " a shield and a breast-work" between her and the foe Is that what the world has been led to expect from Virginia ? Why, pray, should Maryland be a shield and a breast-work for Virginia, rather than Virginia for Maryland? And thus it is that this insolent and arro gant State already begins to quail before the uplifted arm of the federal power, the shivering and crushing effect of whose blow will Vie felt through a!l the Southern borders. It is but a few weeks .120 that the seces sion papers of Virginia pompously assured tLeir readers that the rebel army would be safely encamped on the banks of the Hudson, and that the terms cf peace would be dicta ted in Faneuil Hall ! Now, like a frightened and arrant coward, the Dispatch calls for " a breast-work and a shield " to protect her from the assaults of the Government she has so in solently defied, and Maryland is politely in vited to immolate herself for the purpose of saving Virginia. The Virginia rebels will soon find that no breast-work or shield will save them from the awful retribution which is in store for them. The majesty, and the power of the Govern ment will be vindicated upon her soil, and we feel quitn sure that something more than the spectre of the gallows of John Brown will greet theii vision before the work taken in band by the federal power shall be completed. Virginia set the example of hanging traitors, an example not unlikely to be imitated by the Government, an i within her own border. Id the meantime, we trust Maryland and Kentucky wi!! reflect calmly before accepting the disinterefterl proposals of the Richmond Dispatch and (ien. Piliow. UNION MEKi'ING AT MIDD1.KTO WN. j Aspiritcd Union meet eig was held fit Middle- town, on Satnrdnv'fcfttrnoor.. May 1Mb. 'I lie ! military ccmpany from Troy Conference Acjd my. West Poultney, marched into the villa .rc marched into the village about '! o'clock, and were welcomed by a short speech fioui II Fris bie when the meeting organized by appointing E. Ross, Esq., Chair man. Mr. Ross, on taking the chair, said that he ppposed the object of the meeting was well j vnderstood that Union men hve but one and the same object now, and that is to sustain the Government in vigorous and timely nviasu res to secure obedience to the Constitution and Lws. The time had been when men honestly differed, and upon the subjects which have divi ded the political parties, differed still but in the matter of the Southern insurrection there is but oce opinion, and that is to put it down He believed ii to be the duty of every patriot to up bold the Administration in speedily doing this work, as no way is now open, except to crush cat the rebellion by force of arms. ileBry Clark, Esq., of foultoey, being present wa3 then called oa, nnd addressed the meeting cr an hour in his usual happy -tylu, though he waa more than oidiuariiy enthusiastic, lie ep- proved of the policy ot tne Administration in en - j forcing a s-nbrnis-ton oti t!:e part of those who j have taken up rro against the (lovcruo-ent- j His appeals to the audience to susttin the Ad ministration in this crisis were truly effective for said he however much we may differ upon matters proper to be discussed at a proper time, every loyal citizen mast concede, that unless those at the head of affairs can accomplish what they have undertaken to do, we as a nation are lost ruined. The' meeting wa3 also ably addressed by Messrs Edgerton, Ilitt and Mansfield of Poult ney, the latter gentleman being a student of the Academy and a member of the Military Company and also by Rev. A. Haynes from Boston. Mr. Ilaynes is a native of Middletown. but for many years a resident of Massachusetts. He spoke in high terms of the patriotism of his adopted State, and related several interesting incidents which had come under his observation in raising and fitting out the troops in his State, for the coming struggle. The meeting was closed by an address from II. J. Ballard, Esq , of Poultney. Mr. Ballard made a short speech, owing to the lateness of the hour, tut made some of his best hits, which left tbe audience to separate in good humor. After the meeting was closed the fine Military Company from the Academy occupied an hour or more in their exercises wuich won the praise and admiration of all. Three rousing cheers by the multitude as they took their departure evinced the well wishes of the people of Middle town in their behalf, and three more by the Com pany gave evidence that they were reciprocated. MENDON. The people of Menrlon village had a flag-raising on Saturday afternoon. The Aug, whichjwe learn was some fKteen feet in length, was given to the breeze amid cheeriogs and other appro priate and patriotic demonstrations by tne laige gathering of people present. After which some stirring speeches were delivered by eitizetts of the place eliciting the hearty and loud applause of the assemblage. Ic the evening, among other things, a pro cession was formed and matched through the streets, with music, cheering at different dwelling houses, and receiving cheers therefrom, in return, ell conspiring to make a lively and a good time. The gathering broke up at about 10 o'clock. Brokk Jail.

The first named prisoner was confined for assault and battery, (severely pounding a man, about one month since,) and the other for the crime of infanticide, committed some two montns ago. The window ha which they removed had previously been sawed in two, by some male transgressor who had gone before them, and had been fixed up in its place again by a sort of iron withe, or band. The women man aged to pry otf this fastening, which being done, the bar was wrenched from its place in the stone work, leaving sufficient space for these "fair sex " (minus their hoops, prob ably.) to press themselves through and escape unperceived and unmolested. Measures have been taken for their re capture, but we have not learned of their be int; caught as vet. Patriotic. The officers and employees of the Rutland & Burlington Rail Road have raised a beautiful liberty pole, sixty feet in length, over the roof of the Passenger Depot in this village, from which the Stars and Stripes will soon be floating. These emblems of our country's glory have multiplied so rap idly, of late, that one might travel all over the North, we may almost literally say, with out going out of sight of the 'Ted, white, and blue." .The venerable Dr. Beman. of Troy, on Sunday preached a powerful sermon on the crisia, taking strong ground in favor of'the government in its present attitude as against Southern rebellion and treason. Gen. Wool, on invitation of the preacher, occupied a seat by the side of the latter during the exercises. Thechutch wasciowded to its utmost capaci ty with people of all denominations, and the exercises throughout were of the most impres sive character. As the congregation left the I house, the organist played the ' Star Span- jl,d Banner " and other patriotic airs. Pokhiy. Wc cannot publish one-tenth part of what we ate receiving in those 'lines.

Gay lord put them o'.l by telling them if they would leave the mu.-ket and uniform, in the morning it should appear all right. In the morning the uniform and musket ! did appear all right in the bai k yird under his window, but Gavlord didn't appear, i He in company wi:h one or two other made , their way bv the shortes route to Norfj'k, thence to Baltimore where he was arfested as a spy. his baggage examined and he sent back to Norfolk, there examined again and released. He came to Baltimore and after endeavoring for two days to leave the citv to come North, he went to Marshal Kane to get a pass; Kane told him he was in the hands of the mob, and dated not grant him a pass. This was a day or two after tl e Massachusetts troops, were assaulted in that city. Finally be succeeded in getting bv the guards, and by walking to Havre de Grace a distance ot' thirty-six miles, was enabled to pursue his journey home. On arriving at Derby, being anxious to join the Vermont trcop--. he was advised by Hen. Portus Baxter to join the Green Moun tain Boys, at Montpelier. which advice he was not: ing loth to follow, as it was the verv town in whi. h he was born. Mr. Gavlotd ha" united with this company, and though of a cjuict atid gentlemanly bearing, looks a if he was bo'h wiliing and able to man-h back to Richmond or Norfolk and introduce the Bovs." Vt.

Calheti'ii, in w hi'-h that far-seeing politician utteredla prophecy now ma le le.'i.ir',-tbi,. bv its fulfillment. Con:. Sic wart had r iirckcd to Mr. Calhoun that he considered it singular that the people of the South, who were aristocratic in their lmtion- and in thef institutions, should adhere so closely to the Democratic party. Mr. Calhoun replied : "I see y ou speak through the head of a young statesman, and from the heart of a patriot i but you lose sight of the politician and the! sectional policy of the people. I ad mit your conclusions in respect to us South rons. Th.'t we are essentially aristocratic, I cannot deny ; but we can and do yield much to democracy. This is our sectional poliev ; we arc from necessity thrown upon and sol emnly wedded to that parly, however it may occasionally clash with our feelings, or the conservation of our interests. It is through alliliation with that party in the middle and western States that vve hold power ; but when we cease thus to control this nation through a disjointed democraoy, or any ma terial obst.icle in that party whi- h shall tend to throw us out ol that rule and control, vt shal.' then resort lo a dissolution of the I'niint.

Commandant Dimmiek is strengthing the landside of- Fort Monroe, Ly mounting 10 inch Columbiads, lnrtttr, which are to be protected by sand-bag entrenchments. They were fifing the bags in large numbers on Tuesday. About one hundred men were at work in the forge thop, preparing for mount ing guns. It requires three hundred men to do guard duty at once, the fort being abou. one mile in circumference. A very large garrison is therefore nece: sary to nroperly mount guard and relieve. The ditch around the larel hide is neventy-fi ve feet wide, and at high tide contains ten leet of water. The biggnn 'Bomain,' formerly called the 'Floyd is mounted to sweep the bay. It weighs 2- tons, takes forty pounds of powder to charge, and throws a shot or shell five miles. The narrow neck of lar d which connects the fort with the village of Hampton is to be cut through, so as to allow the tide to have a natural channel way. This will add materi ally to the natural defences of the place.
