It is to be hoped that this unanimity of

will undeceive the people of tha South (if

a little time for relied ion on both sides
jnny yet l.e allowed before the angry hosis
shall come into deadly conflict, and if so,
that those precious moments will be de

by Major Anderson and l.y every oflieer

Attack upon the Pennsylvania and
Massachusetts troops at Baltimore.
The SceesiiiiinUts of IJaltiuioru having
lorn up ll.e railroad track leading from
the Northern Ik-poU to tho .Southern He
pots, the military were obliged to march
through the City. On the arrival of two
Regiments, one from M issaehusetti and
the other from riiiladelphu, on tho lih
instant, an tittaek win made upon them
by a mob, with (.tones, brick-bats it other
missile. This drew a fue from the sol
diers, discharging their pieced into the
crowd, killing five or six, and wounding
many omers among iueia several niiio
cent ipcctators. Three of the Massachu
setts men were killed and eight wounded.
The Philadelphia Regiment was una! mod,
ami but few of them had lei I tho cars
w hen the riot commenced seme of them,
however, seem to liavo ueeu rougniy
handled. Tho train was ordered back,
ami the Itegimelit returning lo Philadel
phia e-rly on Sunday morning.
The .Secessionist!! then proceeded to de
moliidi the bridges on tho railroad from
the North, rendering them unavailable.
The iov. of Maryland and Mayor of
I'liiltimore then united in a demand upon
the "re.-idt-nt that he would not attempt
to pass any more soldier? through Haiti
more, the President replied that he would
not do ho in cac no resistance was made
to the Iriinsportalion of soldier.s through
other parts of Maryland.
A town meeting of the citizens was then
held, from the proceedings of which the
reader will see that Maryland is in a tate
of revolution, and w ill follow Virginia.
The town meeting in Monument Square
this afternoon drew an immense eiowd.
A Stale Hug was hoisted.
