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 ..lltvart ..llUttr, atlho.gh thsj-.r. mtlrtl. dKrwtnt.'

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.

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.

" 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.

A good loolilng young widow who "bosses" a sewing machine In Wheeling, Ya.. la In love 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.

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."

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.
