RWR 3 - The people of Baltimore go about their usual...
The people of Baltimore go about their usual avocations, avocations, under the frowning columbiade, as cheerfully and as briskly, with exceptional Instances, as if there had never been a war or 19th of April. There are sympathizer with treason in Baltimore yet, but they are no longer in the majority, and they can no longer bully and repress the supporters of the Union who dweU here. The latter are growing more numerous and more stalwart in their faith daily, as daily it becomes becomes more apparent that a Government sits over them which is capable of supporting itself, and sustaining sustaining its supporters. Indeed, a stranger in the City to-day, to-day, to-day, would scaicely suspect that there was anything anything but union-imity union-imity union-imity among the inhabitants. The ladies no longer wear red, white and red ribbonsi and it is only at men in uniform that they contract their! pretty brows as they pass them in the street-Here street-Here street-Here and there, throughout the town, the cld-fash. cld-fash. cld-fash. ioned Stars and Stripes are streaming. The newsboys newsboys no longer cry secession papers, but make the air musical with " 'Ere 's the American ."' or, " 'Ere 's the Clipper ! Another right smart battle fit !" It is only in private circles, where one may chance to meet with ladies of secession sentiments sufficiently tolerant to receive and converse with "asast ins," as some of the fair ones term us, that you can perceive how deeply seated is the prejudice against our cause, of those who have friends, relatives lovers, enlisted on the other fide. Diversity of sentiment sentiment on the abtoiblng topic give a piquancy to social intercourse here, which is an added charm.
