Failing to get this settlement, will the
Bonier Sinvo States join tho “ Confederate
States of America,” or will they form a new
Confederacy ? Upon the solution of this
question the future wclhbeing of tho South
ern Confederacy now hangs suspended.
If they fail to join ns, our numerical weak
ness will invite aggression, and we fear that
we shall be involved in perpetual war.
Their self-interest may prompt them to
join us, but their pride will revolt against
it, and we cannot pretend to predict what
will be the result. It was in view of the
vast importance of a united South that we
favored eo operation in the late contest in
this State. We have long ago learned that
it is very difficult to drive men into a par
ticular policy. Much may be done by coax
ing, persuading and inviting—when noth
ing at all could bo accomplished by force.
Our brethren of the Border States might
have been carried along with the Gulf
States, if the people of the latter had first
uiutcd with them in a demand fora satis
factory settlement in tho Union. Had such
demand been made and failed, there would
have been no sort of difficulty in carrying
all tho slaveholding States out of the Union
together. This is, and has been all the
while our opinion, and it can go tor what
it is worth. Other counsels having pre
vailed, however, and a portion of the Slave
States having seceded, wo are exceedingly
anxious now to have co-opcration after se
cession. We therefore hope that our breth
ren of tho Border States will act in a man
ly spirit, and forgetting what thoy regard
as a slight, join the Confederate States as
Boon as possiblo. They need have no fears
concerning tho re-opening of the slave trade
or free trade and direct taxation. It is
true, there are some persons in the new
Confederacy in favor of those measures,
but a very large majority of the people are
unalterably opposed to them. Como for
ward, then, friends, and let us have a Go
vernment “of size,” which we consider more
important than “ a party of size.”

They say they will re-capture tho forts
An informal convention, unauthorized
by the Governor, is in session at Baltimore
Tho aims and sentiments of the Convention
are, perhaps, best set forth in tho address
of Judge Chambers, its President. Ho
This Convention, as I understand it, is
called for the purpose of ascertaining—so
far as could be ascertained by consultation
with tho representatives of all sections of
tho State—tho course which is best for
Maryland to pursue in the present crisis.
Its honest, avowed purpose is of doing as
best; we may all lies within our delegated
power to promote tho peace of tho nation
and the intersts of Maryland. I know
there aro those who entertain a very mis
taken idea of tho character of this body,
ind motives and purposes as false as they
are uncharitable and unjust have been at
tributed to it. But errors of that class
are unavoidable in periods of high excite
mont, and therefore it is that in our delib
erations we should carefully guard against
irritating, intemperate expressions which
shall impugn the integrity of those enter
taining different views from ourselves.—
The men who unjustly ascribe to this Con
vention any purpose of secession have most
gravely misconceived the object of the as
semblage. [Applause, chiefly in the gal

There is ono view ot tho case, however,
which is eonsoling. If the Border States
join us, “old Abe” and his cohorts will not
attempt to coorce tho Southern States.
If they remain in the Union, and he is
fool enough to attempt coercion, they will
assist us. They can never think of help

No. Therefore, while I say that I consid
