For some time past the members of the Young Catholics' Friend Society of Baltimore determined to devote a day to rural festivities, and after corresponding with their brother society of Washington city, both determined to spend a day together at tbe above place. Accordingly, the "members of the Baltimore Seeiety engaged a train of cars, and. under tbe condactorship of Captain Collins, left tbe Camden Station at the company numbering about 800 persons, and occupyiug ten fln? natiutnuttr ran \ Mhlnir nf it fW?riirrt>H , (except tbe swift peasage of numerous long trains, laden with tbe product of the coal mine*), until tbe abrlll whistle of the iron horse announced tbe arrival at the Junction At flrst is wns not known which party would flrst reach the place, but tbe loud shout* of a large crowd at the platforms, and spirited martitl music. indicated that the company fr?tn tbe Metropolis, with many others from (ieorgetown and Alexandria, arrived previously, &nd were drawn up in order for tbe purpese of giving a brotherly salute and greeting to their young frteids from the Monumental city. The flrst train from Washington did not bring down as rr anv excursion!* s as bad been anticipated. but the regular trains from both cities added to the throng, which, still further iacreased bv the good people from the adjareut count?}, cou'.d not have numbered leas than eighteen bimdrfd to twn thousand persons, ail of whom seemed to enter ^uite spiritedly loto tbe j>lea*a/ts of the djy. and with the most cordial ieeiiug.

At meeting of tbe Douglas and Johnaon Association, beld on Monday evening, tbe t7th Instant, tbe following preamble and resolution* were unanl moualy adopted, and order'd to be printed : Whereat at a Late meeting of tbe original Jack on Democratic Association, tbe tbea President, in response to a motion and vote, declared tbe Association adjourned to arxne day in November next, a proceeding intended t~> prevent strife and confusion amon^ tbe members of that bodv; and whereas no call bas bem publicly made In tbe mode prescribed by tbe rules and regulations of that Aseociation for tbe re-?fw?tnbling rf Its members; and whereas It appears by tbe public prints that a body- of men. aaaembled under a call for a meeting of tbe ftteuda of Breckinridge and Lane, bare formed an association under tbe name of tbe "Jackson Democratic Aasociation;'Mt la tbers ?ir Ke*olr"t. Thut we heartily acquiesce in the suspension of the action of the " Jackson Democratic A eolation" for the aake of harmony in that hodv, and with a view to perpetnate the aald organization, and secure iU eflteieocy when the unhappy differences which now exist shall have been healed, and the members of that ancient body may again become able to harmonize. R'solved, by the Douglas and Johnson Association, embracing among its members a lwge majority of the members of the original Jsckson Democratic Association, That we regard the action of the associated friends of Breckinridge and I,ane, set forth in the foregoing preamble, as an attempt to deceive the mass of the democratic party bv creating the impresiton among them that t K A Iam? oatoKlLkjiil < ><!
