THURSDAY, MAY 16, 1861.
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
Id the meantime, we trust Maryland and
Kentucky wi!! reflect calmly before accepting
the disinterefterl proposals of the Richmond
Dispatch and (ien. Piliow.
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.
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.

bars from the window ot the room in w
they were confined, and letting themselves to
the ground by means of a large bed-tick
which they had lengthened out and arranged
for the purpose.
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
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

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

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

.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

I house, the organist played the ' Star Span-

were aristocratic in their lmtion- and in thef

"I see y ou speak through the head of a

to democracy. This is our sectional poliev ;

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.
