The State Legislature assembled in ex

There-was a full attendance of members.
The various subjects losrched upon in the

supporting the military forces of 'tire State,
and authorizing the Governor to call imme

cavalry and infantry, and such nnmberof
artillery and rifle companies as the exigen-cies-of
the country may require. Aleo, a

by forced sales in the collection of debts.
None of ihese bills have yet been consider

The Object of the War.
Amidst the generally covert notions
which prevail concerning the necessity and
purpose 6f the existing war, it cannot be
denied that isome very erroneous views as
to its object ''are entertained, and in some
- - i . - ' .1 ' .1 l J.J
quarters ratner covertly man openiy, au va
cated. There are those whose sympathies
are with the, present military movement
because they hope it is to be converted into,
a crusade against Afriiao slavery that onr
troops are to become a' liberating army, to
iet all the negroes free, 1 and, indeed, to
mark itsmaTCh southward, by promoting
arid sustaining servile insurrections.
Those who seek to give the present move
ment such- a 'direction, at 'is&st give color
and plausibility to the charge heretofore
made against them of purposes and acts
hostile to the Constitutional rights of the
slave State. The only lawful design of the
present war is to-eosrain the Constitutional
authority of the Federal Government and
that certainly -does not comprehend the
power to interfere with the relation of mas
ter and slave. Those who seek to appro
priate the present feeling of Joyality to the
Government, to a negro crusade, do not less
mistake the popular impulse than their own
duties as good citizens. We are not lobe
betrayed, under the patriotic excitement of
the present lime, into propagandists, seek
ing by fire and sword, insurrection and
murder, to impose unacceptable institutions
upon independent States. If the shave
States continue this rebellion against ihe
Union and Constitution, and the result of a
legitimate exercise of Federal power shall
be to be break the back of slavery, we shall
not regret it. and they will ouly have occa
sion to complain of themselves. But while
preparing military armaments to sustain the
Constitution, it is hypocritical and treason
able to avow the design of using tnera for
a purpose entirely ia defiance 'eft that in

Pretended Fears of Invasion and Snjujation-
The manner in which secession is fed
and stimulated is Hvell Illustrated by the
enormous misrepresentations of the Balti
mte Exchange, which is now the most dan
cerous because the most able advocate of
Secession in the metropolis of mobs. Take
as a sample the following string-of false-
hood concerning the purpose -"of the ' Gov
ernment: On the Other side of Maryland the legions
of the mighty North are rapidly concentra
ting, in order lo invade the new Confedera
cy. . Ships and arms, and money, and men,
have been lavishly placed at the disposal
oi Mr. Lincoln. Not content to suffer him,
in his own way,to repossess, if he can. Hie
property in 'the new Confederacy, "which
once belonged to ' this ' Government, the
Northern people are unanimously and ve
hemently urging him to begin a war of ex
termination. They insist that-every South
ern city shall be in turn assailed, and that
those which'resist shall be 'laid -in ashes ;
they-propose that the Southern States shall
be parcelled out among the conquerers ;
they urge that the "Southern people shall
now "be so dealt with as to preclude them
forever henceforth from resisting or even
complaining of the policy of the North. To
accomplish these ends, no means are deem
ed too harsh oncttiel. It has been suggest
ed that armed gangs of burglars and shoul
der-hitters be let loose on the towns; that
servile insurrections be incited in the coun
try ; that the dykes of the Mi6sissppi be
broken down, so that the men, women and
children of vast districts may be indiscrimi
nately drowned. Every sanguinary and
brutal project that the mind can well con
ceive has been started and favorably 're
ceived by the people of the free States.
They speak complacently of the carnage,
the devastation, plunder and 'corvftsion

We find in the London lime of the 12lh
instant some account of what the Govern
ment is doing in India lo facilitate cotton
production and what is of mere immedi
ate importance, to aid in its transport to the
shipping ports. There is not time to build
railroads and make new and expensive im
provements. The demand is immediate.
'The ouly practicable help 6eems to be,"
says the Times, "mending the cart-roads

The New Stay Law. -
The telegraphic reports of the I proceed
ings of the Legislature show that the pro
ject of a 6tay law was under consideration
yesterday. We have sflveral objections to
make to the provisions 'of the bill which
has been iutrodoced , and which was pub
lished in yesterday's Press. We think it
illy fitted to meet1 ihe emergencies of the
times. Its radical defect consists in the
provision that parties applying for the ben
efit of the: proposed law must be possessed
of rear estate' in the county - or1 counties in
which; judgement may be obtained. This
will probably cut off two-thifda of the per
sons who may be desirous of "obtaining re
lief under it.
The great majority of merchants in this
and oiher cities and towns throughout the
State do not own any real estate, although
they may be able lo-"how assets amount
ing to double or treble the total of their
liabilities. Their assets are almost always
in bills receivable, in book accounts and
in stocks of merchandise, if the tempo
rarily embarrassed debtor is a mechanic,
bis property is in tools, materials, and the
products of his skill and labor; if a farmer,
in farming utenits and stock; if a manu
facturer, in machinery, material, and goods.
All these would be deprived of the 'bent fits
of the proposed law, because of their not
being the possessors of real estate.
But it may be said that if ihey have no
real -estate they can avail themselves of the
alternative "mentioned in the bill, and give
real-estate security . If any of our readers
has ever had to hunt up sectfrity, or has
been importuned " to offer himself as
security for others, he will readily estimate
the difficult)' a man in embarrassment
would find in getting a real-estate owner to
become surety for the payment of his debts.
The landed proprietor would answer such
applicants thus: ' My dear friend, I know
you to be honest and well meaning, I would
cheerfully guarantee your character for in
tegrity and uprightness, but ( cannot, in
justice lo my own obligations and ray fami
ly, stake my property upon ihe chance of
your debtors paying you what is justly your
due. You will have to excuse me." Thus,
those whom the law is designed to protect
from unjust sacrifices, will generally be
unable to give security for the payment of
their liabilities, and ihe3a, became of ihis
feature, will bs valueless. To be effectual
and just , in this time of unexpected and
universal suspension, the stay law should
be calculated to protect both the debtor and

on all hands is imperatively called for, and
and where the creditor is inexorable and
unreasonable, ihe stay law should step in

could, from his rapacity. At the same
time it should protect the rights of the cred
itor, and not be made a biel for him who
would dishonestly evade the payment ot
his just debts. Let the security be given

The object of all this stuff is to excite

to involve them in a fate which nothing

It is not trne thai Northern people are urg

lhat they insist every Southern city shall

a lew extreme papers, like -ibe New York

Whai the Northern people insist upon is
simply this : that the power and authority

We learn from the Baltimore American
lhat the free developemenl of-Union senti
ment, which had been crushed for" a time,
is visible in all parts of the "Stale, ;'atid has
had its effect in the Legislature. 'There is
now considerable doubt "whether ::the Se
cessionists will be able to get through the
Legislature even a bill calling a sovereign
Convention. The impression ' is that they
will either adjourn without any action on
ihe subject, or confine themselves to an
address to the people When brought up
square to meet the issue, the most - earnest
of those who have been engaged for months
past in stirring up a rebellion shrink from
the responsibility. Thte American is very
decided in its tone against secession, and
iq favorof the maintenance ot the Union.
Witness the following extract from a recent
'Grant for the sake of ihe argument, that
Maryland has the power and the righl to

What can it be ! Certain of the United
States asserted their right to withdraw from
the Union, and, so far as fnfeir act could do
it, did withdraw. The Government, not
withstanding, at an expense of thousands
upon thousands of dbllars has continued to
carry their mails, has submitted to their as
saults, and has in no insta nee or 'place ta
ken any action but defensive. President
Buchanan 'in his message laH December
said the Government could ndt do less than
this, and the officers of ihe Government
under President Lincoln have done no more
than they would have done under President

Ths Twcbtt Day'b Grace' Expire lo
ilOBkOw l In President Lincoln's war proc
lamation, "done at the city of Washington,
on Ihe fifteenth day of April," the following
important passage occurs:
"I deem it proper to say that the first ser

places and property vhick have been seized from

care will be observed, consistently with the

in any part of the country; and I hereby
command thi persons comprising the combjna
. linn of l foresaid lo disperse and retire peacea
bly to thi their respective abodes within twenty
davi from tkit date."
The "combinations" here referred to are
the hostils combinations in the revolted
States against.the laws and authority of the
United States. Tbesa 'combinations" are
warned to disperse within twenty days
from the notice given, a term of grace which
expired on the 5th of. ilay.l As the Presi
dent's command will not, in all probability,
be respected ; we may reasonably conclude
that the defensive policy of the Govern

next few days, General Scott will cry havoc,

continue in rebellion against the lawful au

But in case this pacific cause is not
adopted by the South it will become neces
sary for ihe Government to use just so much j
force as may be adequate for the re cap

During these warlike times, the signifi
cance of the above term, so much used,
becomes exceedingly important : In Bour-
ier's Law Dictionary, Martial Law is de
fined as "a code established for the govern
ment of ihe army and navy of the United
States," whoso principal rules are to be
found in ihe articles ol war prescribed by
act of Congress. But Chincelor Kent says
this definition applies only to military law,
while martial law is qnite a distinct thing,
and is founded on paramount necessity,
and proclaimed by a military chief. Mar
tial law is generally and vaguely held io a
suspension of all ordinary civil rights and
process, and as such approximates closely
to a military despotism

"The people have responded to the call
of the President for aid. They have an

that a panic is already perceptible among
the less desperate of the rebels. Probably
no man connected with the national admin

nado of patriotic enthusiasm. But we re
gret to say, the President has not in his
tnrn responded to the mighty demand of
ihe masses no more temperising with tra
tors. The negotiations between Lincoln
and Seward on the one hand, and Hicks
and Brown on ihe other, are humiliating to
the government and chilling to the people.
There seems to be a wofol lack of common
sense, decision and energy in the manage
ment of affairs. Volunteers are kept with
out arms and equipments long after ihey
are thoroughly organized, tolerably drilled,
and ready for a call to the field. Pennsyl
vania troops hurry forward to a position
whence ihey can threaten Baltimore and
hold that rebellious city in check, and some
body orders them lo retire, for fear of offend
ing the delicate sensibilities of Hicks and
company. Other volunteers hasten to
Annapolis, and there they remain for days,
without the facilities for reaching the im
perilled capitol. If Washington does not
fall into the hands of the rebels, the credit
of its salvation will not belong io the ad
ministration, but to the gallant volunteers of
Massachusetts. New York and Pennsylva

Bay State, Fort Monroe would have lacked
a garrison capable of a successful resis

patriots would soon clear the direct road to
Washington, if the government possessed a
tittle of the spirit which now animates the
northern people. If Mr. Lincoln would
hold his tonge, and Mr. Seward would con

January 30. lRfil lm -pd.
Opposite Washington, on the Virginia
side of the Potomac, the adopted son o
Washington, (the son of Mrs. Washington
by her first husband,) George Washington
Parke Custis, dwelt in a fine mansion
which he graced with gentlemanly hospi
tality. Arlington House was in the centre
of h'u estate of 1,000 acres. He died
1857, at tho hdvanced age of 86.
It is from his boue and grounds, so often
visited by the curious and patriotic a pil
"grim shrine second only to Mount Vernon
that the attack on ihe Capitol is expected.
What a paricidal assault! It aims, as it
were, at the sources of life of the Republic.
And yet such is the character of the con
test j and the thunders of assault and the
signals of carnage are yet to wake the ech
oes around the tomb of Washington.
A CAUD TO THE SCFFERIXG,

Holloway's Pills Fast Life, Swift decay
'A deed without name !" There is a
stream of vice current among the youth of
bolh sexes prolific of the most terrible dis
orders. By perverting the noblest gifts of
God to the vilest purposes it degrades the
majesty of manhood to the level of the
brute ; it traces its source to the depraved
affection of a prurient imagination its ap
petite is whetted by the contaminated con
tinents of indiscriminate companionship at
schools and seminaries ; it bears within its
womb the tortures of its own chastisement,
and the germ of speedy destruction in the
fearful retribution of loss of memory, bank
rupt constitution swift decay, imbecility
and insanity. It is our duty to warn parents
and guardians that this nameless disease
may not only be prevented but actually
cured by the remedies heading ibis para
