THE WAR NEWS !
REINFORCEMENT OP FORT PICRENS
From the New Orleans Delta of the 17th, we
have the following confirmation of the state
ment that Fort Pickens has been reinforced.
We have recent and reliable intelligence from
General Bragg's camp. Nothing of great mo
ment has occurred in this locality. Bragg's
force is steadily increasing. On Friday last
six hundred of the Florida regiment reached
the camp. The New Orleans troops, including
the Cadets, Capt. Dreux, and the three compa
nies under Major Bratifi.rd, have reached Pen
sacola. We have definite intelligence of the
reinforcem'ent of Fort Pickens. The Wyandotte
was seen by one of Bragg's spies to land on the
outside of the inland a company of troops sup
posed to be artillerists, eighty in number, and
a quantity of provisions end munitions. The
Sabine, St Louis, Brooklyn and Wyandotte still
lie off the island Santa Rosa. Gen. Bragg has
peen much annoyed .flate by spies and traitors,
some of whom have been arrested and sent to
Front the Mobile Mercury, 15.
We have reliable confirmation of the tele.
graphic reports of the reinforcement of the
On Friday evening, a little after dark, signal
guns were heard out at sea —six distinct reports
-seeming to be some dozen or fifteen miles
away. It was surmised at first that they were
signals of distress, but soon it was concluded
to have some connection with a reinforcement
of Pickens. About 9 o'clock there was dis
covered to be an unusual stir about Fort Pick
ens, and unusual lights displayed. From
various indications and circumstances, it was
apparent that reinforcements were being landed
and introduced into the fort. The reinforcement
was etill going on Saturday morning when our

ships, supposed to ba on their way to Southern

Were not observable, and no signs were seen of
them on Saturdey morning.
The 'reinforcement is supposed to be the men
who have been waiting on shipboard for that
purpose for some weeks.
With regard to the mediated attack upon
Fort Pickens on the night of Friday, the fl2ll,
the .Mercury says:
There can be no doubt that an assault on
Fort Pickens was ordered for that night at
about the hour of midnight. The assaulting
party was compt se t of five hundred picked men.
All necessary preparations were made for mo
ving at about 11 o'clock, The storming party
were led down to the Navy Yard, from whence
it would probably have embarked in boats.—
There are some other particulars about the
preparations, as given to ue, which we think
bad as well not yet have the publicity of a
It is surmised that Forney was to have been
the leader. There was no doubt entertained
of its success, and if all be true as stated to us,
we think Fort Pickens would have fallen that
night but for—what ?
Fortune, or chance, will have to bear the
blame, and delay, the real culpable party, will
probably escape. Before the hour arrived it
was evident the fort had been reinforced, and
all thought of the meditated assault was aban
doned. The men picked for this special service
lay on their arms all 'night at the Navy Yard
without any protection from the chill air of the
night, some of them not having so much as a
blanket. They made no complaint. Col. For
ney complimented them by saying they would
do for anything. Not a cap was distr., buted to
them—the business was to be done with cold

Bragg had a position on Santa Rosa Island with
The Wyandotte is positively notified to stay
outside in the future.
EX PRESIDENT PIERCE ON THE CRISIS
CONCORD, N. IL, ,April 21.—Ex-President
Pierce made the following speech from the
balcony of the Eagle Hotel to a mass meeting
last night : •
Fellow citizens and neighbors : If I had been
apprised of your meeting last night seasona
bly, I should have been present. But the uo
tiee did not reach me till this morning. I wish
to say in advance that since my arrival here
the resolutions which you have passed have
been read to me, and have my cordial approval.
Yuu call for me, my friends, as lovers of our
country and of the blessed Union, which our
forefathers transmitted to us, on an occasion
more grave, more momentous and more deeply
fraught with painful emotions than any under
which I have ever addressed you. But 1 re
joice that that. flag (pointing to the flag of the
United States) floats there. (Cheers.) Love
for the flag ot our country is a sentiment com
mon to us all ; at least to my heart it, is no new
emotion.. My father followed it from the bat
tie of Bunker H.ia uninterruptedly till the ene
my evacatated New York in 1783. My brothers
were with the gallant men who upheld it in the
war of 1812. Can I, can you, fail to remember
how proudly it floated at a more recent date
from Palo Alto to Buena Vista, on one line .31
operation, from the Castle of San Juan d'Ulloa
to the city of Mexido on another. Never can
we forget that the gallant men of the North
and of the South moved together .like a baud
of brothers, and mingled their blood on many
a field in the common cause. Can I, it' I would.
feel other than the profoundest sadness when
I see that those who so often stood shoulder to
shoulder in the face of foreign toes are now in
imminent danger ot standing face to face as
the foes of each other? But they should have
thought of this as well as we. At all events,
there is no time now to consult our feelings.—
The question has resolved itself into one of
patriuttsm and stern duty. We cannot fail to
see what the nature of the contest is to be, and
to sumo limited extent the painfulness of the
progress and cousequences. We must not,
however, turn our tact s from them, because the
true way too meet danger is to see it clearly
and encounter it on theadvance. (Applause.)
I, for one, will ' , ever cease to hope as long as
the fratricidal strife is not more fully devel
oped than at the present time that some event,
some power may yet intervene to save us front
the worst, calamity that ever depended over
nation. The optili,,ns of many of the vast
crowd before me, with regard tollie cause which
has produced the present condition of public
affairs, are known to me, and mine are we 1
known to you. Ido not believe aggression by
arms is a suitable or possible remedy for the
existing evil, still neither of these matters
ought, to be considered now. They may be we I
waved, nay. they must be, final we have seen
each other through our pi eseut trials and future
dangers. Should the hope which I have ex
pressed not be realized, which may a benefi
cent, rrovitlence forbid, and a war of aggression
is to be waged against the National Capital and
the North, then there is no way for us as citi
zens of the old thirteen States but to stand
together and uphold the flag. to the last, with
all the rights which pertain to it., and with the
fidelity and endurance of brave men. I would
counsel you to stand together with one mind
and one heart, calm, faithful and determined,
but give no'contitenance to passion and violence,
which are usually unjust., and often in periods
like these the harbingers of domestic strife.—
Be just to yourselves, just to others, true to
your country, and may God, who has so sig
nally blessed our fathers, graciously interpose
in this hour of clouds and darkness and save
both extremities of the country, and cause the
old flag to be upheld by all hands and all
hearts. Born in the State of New Hampshire.
I intend that here shall repose my bones. I
would not live in a State the rights and honor
of which I was not prepared to defend at all
hazards, and to the last extremity. (Cheers

The following account of the desperate con
dition of affairs in Baltimore. the terrible at
titude of brigandage assumed by the Vigilance
Committees of the city, and the dangers of
the road 10 all Northern people necessitated to
travel through the State, was kindly furnished
us by the Bev. Henry M. Field, who went in
the special train which left Wilmington Sunday
morning in charge of the superintendent oft he
road and intended for the conveyance of la
borers to the different points between Wash
ington and Baltimore where the line had been
injured and the bridges burned down. The
work of repair would have been speedily car
ried out, but at Havre de Grace, when they
arrived there, the Superintendent was met by
a party of friendly persons from some twelve
miles beyond Havre de Grace, who emphati
cally warned him not to cross the river on any
account; that if he did so, it would be at the
certain peril of his life. These persons also
informed him that all the intermediate bridges
to Baltimore were destroyed, and armed parties
were assembled to prevent repair or re con
struction. At Havre de Grace they met pas
sengers, who were compelled to take a boat
from Baltimore to Havre de Grace the night
before. These persons all recounted but one
story as to the dangers of the road, and they
all expressed the heartiest thanks for their
• They stated that they experienced the great
est difficulty in getting through without de
tention and without. personal m•lestation from
the excited mobs that roamed Baltimore. The
authorities themselves hesitated for a, time to
let them pass on, and when at last those
worthies give their consent, they came to the
resolution that no more travelers would he
allowed to Tess through their city. The whole
population is in a ferment of excitement ; the
respectable portion of. it in an agony of fear
and dread under the reign of terror which has
raised its horrid head in their midst. Great
numbers of the people are flying from their
homes and seeking safety in the country.—
Most, in tact, of thuse who can go are hurrying
off. Terrorism reigned along the whole nee
within the borders of Maryland. Late tra
velers have been spotted, and all who May
venture to pass through are liable to arrest and
long detention if not worse. One gentleman
among the passengers by boat to Havre de
Grace, born and bred in Baltimore, from some
unknown cause, became subject to suspicion,
and was instantly arrested as a spy, and for a
time in danger of the penalty demanded of
such worthies. Luckily for him he got a person
to hastily communicate his position to the ed
itor of a leading secession paper, who at once
came to his rescue. On the a<surance of this
subject of Jeff Davis the gentleman was re
leased, the former protecting him until he had
placed him on the boat. In each of the hotels
a vigilance committee, composed of sixty armed
men, exercises a severe espionage over all
entering the same ; and already Northern
guests at the hotels, if not ready to give a
-atisfactory account of themselves, are in
danger of arrest, and subject to many hard
ships and indignities.
Those who succeed in getting away seathless
look upon their escape as providential. In
Baltimore there are not many secession flags
flying, but numerous Maryland flags are to be
seen, while the Stars and Stripes are " no
where " and none dare utter a word in behalf
of the Union., The passengers, as they steamed
out of the hay, noticed that Fort M'Henry was
in a state of defence, with all her guns run out.

way to Kansas to raise a regiment in defence
of the country. There were supposed to be at
Washington nearly ten thousand men, with
sixty pieces of flying artillery. All salient
points were in possession of the the troops, and
all vulnerable positions strongly guarded, and
the feeling of the men, one and all, is to deal
terrible retribution on the heads of the seces
sionists should they assail the federal capital.
Mayor Aitherger, of Buffalo, who has been
spending some months in Baltimore, where his
relatives resid. , arrived in this city this morn
ing. He left Baltimore on a canal boat. Six
gentlemen who eh irtered a canalboat there on
Friday, for $2OO. also arrived at the Astor
House to-day. They report the condition of
'he city as most fearful. Armed mobs parade
the streets compelling all persons to unite with
them in imprecations against the North, the
Government and the Union. The priecipa
streets are all barricaded, and many of the
houses furnished with shutters, in which loop
holes are cut, for the purpose of pouring a
deadly fire on any troops that might attempt
to march through the city. Mr. Allberger,
who had just risen from a sick bed, was sur
rounded by a mob of a dozen half drunken
ruffians at the _Eutaw Hou-e before he lett,

emptied of arms by the mob. A prominent
citizen who was known as a Union man was

It is believed that no Northern man's lire wilt

THE PRESIDENT'S DECISION-STATEMENT OF

Mayor Brown received a dispatch from the
President of the United States at $ o'clock this

coln for the preservation of the peace of Mary

was not in the city, and inquired if he should
go alone. Receiving an answer by telegraph
in the affirmative, his Honor, accompanied by
George W. Dobbin, John C. Brune and S. T.
Wallis„ Esqrs.,whorn he had sunaniontd to attend
him, proceeded at once to the President's House.
A long conversation and discussion ensued.—
The President, upon his part, recognized the
good faith of the city and State authorities, and
insisted upon his own. He admitted the ex
cited state of feeling in Baltimore, and his
desire and duty to avoid the fatal consequences
a collision with thepeople. Be urged, on
the other hand, the absolute, irresistible neces
-ity of having transit through the State of. such
rrueps as might be necessary for the protection
of the Federal Capital. The protection of
Washington, he enervated with great earnest
ness, was the sole object of concentrating
troops there, and ho protested that none of the
troops brought through Maryland were inten
ded for any purpose hostile to the State, or
ageressive as against the Southern States.
Being now unable to bring them up the Po
tomac in security, the Government must either
tiring them through Baltimore or abin lon the
Capital. He called on Gen. Scott for his opin
ion, which the General give at length, to the
effect that troops might be brought through
Maryland, without going through Baltimore,
by either carrying them from Perrysville to
Annapolis, and thence by rail to Washington,
rr by bringing them to the Relay House, on
the Northern Central Railroad, and marching
them to the Relay House on the Washington
Railroad, and thence by rail to the Capital.—
If the people would permit them to go by either
of these routes uninterruptedly, the necessity
of their passing through Baltimore would be
avoided. It the people would not permit them
a transit thus remote from the city, they must
-elect their own best route, and, if need be,
fight their way through Baltimore, a result
which the General earnestly deprecated.
The President expressed his hearty concur
rence in the desire to avoid a collision, and
said no more troops should be sent through
Baltimore if they were permitted to go unin
terrupted by either of the other routes suggest
ed. In tnis disposition the Secretary of War
expressed his participation.
The interview terminated with the distinct
assurance on the part of the President that no
more troops should be sent through Baltimore
unless obstructed in their transit in other di
rections, and with the understanding that the
city authorities should do their best to restrain
their own people.
On returning to the cars, and just about to
leave, about 2 P. M., the Mayor received a dis
patch from Mr. Garrett, announcing the ap
proach of troops to Cockeysville, and the excite
ment consequent upon it in the city. Mr. Brown
and his companions returned at once to the
President, and asked en immediate audience,
which was promptly given. The Mayor exhi
=died Mr. Gerrett's dispatch, which gave the
President greatsurprise. He immediately sum
moned the Secretary of War and Gen. Scott,
who soon appeared with other members of the
Cabinet. The dispatch was submitted. The
President at once, in the most decided way,
urged the recall of the troops. saying that he
nad no idea they would be there to day, and
lest there should be the slightest suspicion of
bad faith on his part in summoning the Mayor
to Washington, and allowiug troops to march
on the city during his absence, he desired that
the troops should, if it were practicable, be
sent back at once to York or Harrisburg. Gen.
Scott adopted the President's views warmly,
and an order was accordingly prepared by the
Lieut. General to that effect and forwarded by
Major Belga; of the army, who accompanied
the Mayor to this city.
The troops at Cockeysville the Mayor was
assured, were not brought there for transit
through the city, but were intended to be.

A STRANGE DELUSION.—A respeotable lady of
' Albany applied, a few days since, to a physi
cian, and stated to him the singular oireum
t.tances of her case. The lady in question has
for many years been afflicted wi h an irresisti
ble penchant for duplicating everything she
may have to do. If she desires to go out, she
does so, and then as carefully unrubes, folds
her clothes and deposits them in the place from
whence they were taken—alter which, she can
dress and proceed wherever inclination or busi
ness may lead her. Having reached the ter
mination of her wale, whether it be to the
house of a friend, or the store, to make a pur
chase, she finishes her call or transacts her
business, and returns home the same as any
other person would do ; but here, however, the
synonym terminates; for no sooner does she
reach home than she must immediately retrace
her steps—no matter whether the weather be
lair or stormy, cold o r warm. But this time
she is satisfied with simply going to the door
of the place she has just visit: d, when she can
again return home, with the conviction that
she has done her duty, or performed the in
voluntary penance which some iuvi-ible power
has imposed upon her. After breakfast., din
ner or supper, she can exercise no volition of
her own, until she has repeated, in pantomime,
each distinct meal. If she steps to the door to
answer the bell, to witness some passing pa
geant or other display in the street, she must
return to her room, sit down in the same posi
tion she has previously occupied, and again go
to the door in the saute manner as she has done
at first. If, in raising a cup of tea or coffee
to her lips, by some ac cident it should fall from
her hand, the casuality, slight as it is, must be
