REPORT:

The undersigned, a portion of the Committee appointed by
the Legislature to present and urge the favorable considera-
tion of its resolutions upon Presidents Lincoln and Davis, beg
leave to report:

That the manifest purpose of those resolutions, was, in the
opinion of your Committee, to secure, if possible, through
the instrumentality of Maryland, peace to our distracted
country; and if failing in that, then a cessation of hostilities
on the part of the armies of the Federal and Confederate troops
until Congress should express its opinion on tie subjects,
which now agitate the people. These purposes being defeated
by the movement of Federal troops on Virginia and an active
commencement of hostilities, we have considered our mission
as ended, and therefore have not felt authorized on the part of
the sovereign State of Maryland to present a request which
has in advance been repudiated,
