TboMdfors ‘ On Friday morning Inst, a detachment of SiehW Brigade, under the command of Capt. Bargew and numbering about ftfiy men, made its appearance in our tillage. They were without tenia or baggage wagons, and took np their quarters in the Court Room, with their lines circumscribed within the limits of the yard. On the following day an other squad of nine arrired making the aggregate force here about sixty men.— The hearing of the officers wee polite and eonrtcona, and the men conducted themsalrec in a rery quiet and orderly manner. No arrests were made in the town or neighborhood, nor were soy depredations committed upon (he rights or property of any one. The object of the visit was not stated, nor did the officers or men, during their sojourn, drop e hint of the character of the mission they were cent upon. They expreeaed them •elves ae entertaining friendly feelings to wards the eitiaens of Maryland, and de clared it to be their pnrpoae to molest no one, which declaration, we are hap py to tty, they strictly adhered to.— Our eitiiena remained at home, and pur sued their wonted avocations as usual, which, both attests and man stated, had not been generally tbe ease in the vil lages they had visited since they left Washington. They left, on Sunday morning last, for Chspt co, and are prob ably, ere this, at their headquarters in Port Tobacco, where we learn, quite a Urge force is stationed. Before leaving the Captain settled with our ektsens for provisions furnished him whilst here, and spoke in complimentary terms of the treatment he received at their hands.— Unices the reports that have reached here of the outrages committed, else where, by detachments of Sickles' bri gade, are exaggerated or nnfonnded, our citizens have good cause to be pleas ed with the result of the Isle visit, and shqull certainly think well of the con duct of Capl.

He was about f 35 years of age, and leaves a wife * and a large circle of relatives and connections to regret and mourn for him. > Arrest- I J. Edwin Coad, a resident of the Fao r tory district, and a distinguished and wcal • thy citizen of our county, was arrested by > Federal authority some time last week and i is at present: a prisoner on board one of > tbe Government cutters iu the Potomac. ; t We learn that he will be retainer on board i the cutter nntil tbe Commodore of the Squadron is able to give his case an in vestigation. after which, wc hope and be lieve, he will be released and restored to hb family J Believing that the charge? : against Mr, Coad have been trumped up and are the result of private malice and altogether false, the sympathy of our entire community is with him iu hb present nib fortune, and the confident conviction i? entertained, that be will he able to make hb iunooeaec manifest to the authorities , who have him in charge and to the world. Homioidn. We learn, that on Saturday night last, s free negro named John Cole, residing near the Head of 3t. Clement's Bay, in thb county, was stabbed, in an affray, by a young man named Charles Thompson, and died from tbe effects of the wound on Monday. As we presume the affair will undergo a judicial investigation, wc de eline giving the particular! that have reached on. Up to present writing, Thompson baa not been arrested. The Maws' Since onr last week’s publication, con firmatory intelligence of tbe surrender of Lexington, Missouri, has been received, with a detailed account of the sanguinary conflict that preceded its capture by the Confederate forces. Although the siege lasted five days, as originally stated, it b 1 now thought that the loss on both aides has been greedy exaggerated, and Gen. Prioe, reports tbe Confederate loss at only > 81 killed and 70 wounded. Tbe number of Federal prisoners taken it estimated at from 8000 to 4000, whilst the Oovern -1 meat lose,' in money, horses, arms and r munitions of war, b acknowledged to have been very heavy. At latest accounts, > Gen. Fremont was marching against Prise, In fall fores, with e view of retak ing Lexington, whilst the btler, with a i reported force of 42,000 men, was pre paring to give him battle. Latest sdvisas from Washington show a general retiring on the part of the Con federates firom the advanced positions re cently held, and the occupation of Mun •on and Mason's Hilb by the Pederals. The fortifications creeled by the Confede rates. at both these placet, haws been fraud to have been almost worthless, is s mili tary point el view, and, it is now thought, that they were occupied by Urn “rebels” simply to obtain an unobstructed view of the Federal fortifications and defences. It may be, however, that they were occu pied with a view of attracting the atten tion of McClellan, whilst preparation? could ha mods for important operations in other qwsrters. The abandonment of these .paste is net regarded at Washington.

Whereas, in the judgment of tbe Gene ral Assembly of Maryland, the war now waged by the Government of the United States upon the people of the Confederate Stales, is unconstitutional in its origin purposes and conduct; repugnant to civi lisation and sound policy; subversive, of the free principles upon which tbe Fede cral Union was founded, and certain to result iu tbe hopeless and bloody overthrow of our existing institutions; and Whereas, the people of Maryland, while recognizing the obligation of their State, as a member of the Union, to submit in good faith to the exercise of all the legal and constitutional powers of tbe General Government, and to join as one man in fighting its authorized battles, do rever ence, nevertheless, the great American principle of self-government, and sympa thize deeply with their Southern brethren in their noble and masly determination to uphold and defend the same ; and Whereat, not merely on their own ac count and to turn away from their own soil the calamities of civil war, but for the blessed sake of humanity, and to avoid tbe wanton sbeding of fraternal blood, In a miserable contest which can bring nothing ing with it but sorrow, shame end desola tion, the people of Maryland are enlisted, with tbeir whole heart*, on the ride of re conciliation and peace : now, therefore, it is hereby Resolved by the General Assembly of Mnryland. That the State of Maryland owes it to her own sell-respect and her re spect for the Constitution, not lest than to her deepest and most honorable sympathies, to register this her solemn protest against the war which the Federal Government has declared upon the Confederate States of the Sooth, and our raster and neighbor Virginia, and to announce her resolute determination to have no part or lot, di rectly or indirectly, in its prosecution. Resolved, That the State of Maryland earnestly and anxiously desires the resto ration of Peace between the beligereni sections of the country, and the’President, authorities, and people of the Confederate Stales, having, over and over again, offi cially and unofficially declared that they are willing to throw down the sword, tbe instant that the sword now drawn against them shall be sheathed, the Senators and Delegates of Maryland do beseech and im plore the President of the United States to aeeept the (dive breach which is thus held out to him ; and in the name of God and humanity to oases this unholy end meet wretched and unprofitable strife, el Beset until the assembling of Congress m Wash ington shall have gives time for the pee vafeace of coderand better counsels. Resshed, Thai the Stele of Maryland derive* the peaceful and immediate recog nition of dm independence of the Confede rate Staten, end hereby gives her oordial assent thereunto, as a member of the Un ion ; entertaining the profound conviction i. that the willing return ef the SaatfMnr people to their former Federal relations is a thing beyond hope, and that the attempt v to coerce teem will only add alaughtafeapd , hate to impossibility. * ; Resulted, That the present mititmw oe-’ 1 grant violation of the ffodflitutite,’ the - General Assembly ef t|e ; State, in the i name of her people, does hereby protest . against the him, end against the upprev rive restrictions and illegalities with which r it is attended ; colling upon all good citi * sens, et the same time, and in the mnet i earnest and authoritative manner, to abstain i from all violent and unlawful interference, of every sort, with the troops in transit r through (for territory or quartered among F us, and patiently and peacefully to leave 5 to vime and reason tbe ultimata and cer . tain nr establishment and vindication of the right. Resolved, Thst under existing eircum ‘ stances, it is inexpedient to call e bover

- eign Convent ion of the State at this time. r or to take any measure for the immediate organization or arming of the militia. | WILL THEHK BE AN ELECTION ? This question is propounded to us dat ’ ly by the advocates of peace. We are unable to anticipate the designs of tbe f government, but still we are hopeful that notwithstanding the gloom which over ~ hangs our beloved State, foT : people will I be permitted to vote for uadi delegates to the General A.*eiuhly as they may sup > pose will most truly reflect their will ’ without the interference of federal soldiers. t At all events we hope this privilege will j be conceded to the people of the counties. As to the city of Baltimore, now that the Police Commissioners, whose duty it I is under the laws to appoint the judges of I election Ac., have been displaced, and im [ pti-oned by the federal govern ment, we confess to an entire incapacity to under stand how a legal <r constitutional election 1 can take place in that city. Possibly. however, the government at Washington I will, in due time, relieve the apprebeu p aions of all law abiding citizens on this subject. It may be that we shall have what all const it utiuu-loving aud law-aLiu ing citizens will regard as a free and fair election. This depends, however, of , course, upon the will of ‘‘the powers j t that be.” But our friends should not i r condemn the Administration at Washing * ton in advance of the fact. We advise all | I to be prepared to vole, or, at least, to at- j ; tempt peaceably and quietly to deposit l t thrir ballots And preliminary tothe election I it is important that trustworthy A com- ! petcut candidates, entertaining the senti men is and advocating the principles of the ( Peace party, should be nominated for the various county uffio.g. Our State candi [ dates are already nominated. The next thing we have to do is to nominate, in this county a candidate for the Senate, six candidates for the House of Delegates, a * candidate for the Sherriffalty, aud candi : dates fur the various district offices. There is no "treaton" in all this; and wc L think it unreasonable in any one to sup ; pose that the President will permit any interference with the right of the people ! to meet iu convention for these purposes . By virtue of the authority vested iu the | officers of our late County Convention, they have, as will appear by their notice in another column, fixed upon the ]2tb j of October, as tbe day for holding our ' County nominating Convention. We urge * the delegates to the convention from the 1 various districts to regard it as a most ' sacred and patriotic duty to attend the Convention and discharge the obligation which lias been imposed upon them by the * people. I*et us do what it is our duty to r do to-day. When to-morrow comes it will be quite time to consider the exigencies by ! which we may be surrounded—or whether > as citizens ut Maryland, we still have any [ right to defend or duties to perform. No proclamation has been issued by the 1 President prohibiting the nomination of 1 candidates for the various offices provided for under the Constitution; no law has 1 been passed by Congress on the subject, nor forbidding an election to be held, or 1 prescribing new and unheard of qualifica * tions for voters; and, hence, as matters uow stand it is but reasonable to suppose that our ancient Constitutional right iu 1 these regards will be respected by the * President. At all events lei us attempt to exercise our constitutional rights, so | that we may not have cause hereafter to ’ reproach ourselves with the failure to dis charge the meat sacred duties of a free, ' self-governing peoule, through, what may turn out to have been, unfounded and uu ’ reasonable apprehension of military vio p lence.— Citizen. From the Cincinnati Enquirer. f Immense Armies- There is little doubt that the armies now in Washington and its vicinity : amount to the immense aggregate of near P 200,000 men on -each side, or 400,000 combatants. .Whenever a general battle i shall occnr, it will not only have no parallri on the Western Continent in tbe forces engaged, hot hardly one in the history of modernJEurope will vie with it. Thc great balll ■ of Napoleon were gen ■ ereily fought with numbers for inferior to those now under the walls of Wash ington. For instance, at AueterKtz, where Napoleon defeated foe combined armies of Ronria and Austria, be bad but 80,000 troops; tbe Allies bad 100.- 000. A; Jena and Auerstadt, where be broke tbe power of Prussia, his forces were not over 130.000 strong. At tbe great battle of Wagram, fought wilb tbe Austrians on the banks of tbs Danube, hi 1800, be bad but 150.000 awn. At Borodino, under the walls of Mooenw, he bad but 120.000 to oppose tbe Bus mans. .At Waterloo he did not have to exceed 80*000 troupe. Not one of tty? battles in Daly or Spain even equalled* Ibis bat number.— Tie telly battle-field we now recollect of where the eunubaiants were as numerous as thoßf around Washington, was Leipsic. 1818, where Napoleon had 175,000, aud the Allies lln riant . Austrians. HPrue 890.000. Kcirft half a milium of bsbl took part in this tremendous Brkieh was |hmkb as the Combat of m*k ath* ft Ated three days. ami eMfcO* m omupMe overthrow of NapoH.l who was driven into France, whcwgi r atriea of couuueueed that did] Hut end until Napoleon abdicated hij crown and w* exiled to the Tirl-tri all K!ba. in 1814. No battle was even I fought on the noil of the United &atca i where 60,000 combatants took pdl iul it ou both sides. Prom these figures we can judge of what a battle we have reason to aspect | when the busts of McClellan and Jfreau regard, more than twice the number of those of Napoleon and Wellington at Waterloo, come in collision on the banks .of tbe Potomac. It will be an event tb.it will he tbe great military feature, probably, for ages to come, of martial prowess in America. Damtsl Webstx* ow mi Right of Free Speech is War Tim*.—Tl may be well to calmly weigh, at the present time, the following words of Daub I Webra Tlkj were uttered in defence of a great principle; and the right to piactieally il lustrate that principle, within reasonable bounds, and at all times, will be found to be essential to the safety of onr free in stitutions. Mr Webster said £ “.Important as J d*ein it tottreoss, on all proper occasions, tbe pfloy of the measures at present pursued, it is still more important to maintain the right of : such discussion in its full and just extent. {Sentiments lately sprung up and now ’growing popular, render it necessary to bo explicit on this point. It is the ancient j and constitutional right of this people lu j canvass public measures, and tbe merits of j public men, It is a homebred right, a fiteside privilege. It has ever been t en joyed in every house, cottage and cabin in tbe nation, it is not to be drawn into controversy. It is as undoubted ac the right of breathing the air, and walking jou the earth. Belonging to private life |as a right, it belongs to public life as s . duty; and it is tbe last duty which Abuse 1 whose representative I am *hall find me to I abandon. This high constitutional privi lege I shall defend and exercise wilbiu •this [louse, and in all places; in time uf ; uar, in time of peace, and at all time*. ' Living. I will assort it; dying I will assert j it; and. should 1 leave no other legacy to j my children, by the blessing of G<d I will ! leave them the inheritance of free princi- I pies, and the example of a mealy, iude- I pendent, and constitutional defense of them.” Deserters prom th* Rebel Army. — In these perilous times we incline strongly to the belief that the Government cannot use too much caution with reference to all sorts of folks who come from the rebel army. The men who had the ingenuity to contrive carriages with false bottoms, whereby to “sneak off” forbidden articles. vre certainly may suppose would have the cunning to start off a deserting expedi i tion. and thus gain an entrance by proxy within the boundaries of loyalty. We find that lately two deserters have reached the loyal camp, and, strange to say, each gives an entirely different story of affairs in and about the rebel camp. One of them exhibits the fine shoes be wore as a “specimen brick” of those worn by the rel>el army generally. He spoke of the vast numbers commanded by Beau regard, and the good health of tbe rank and file traitors, Ac. The other, in the most forlorn condition, set himself forth ss a fitting representative of all his late com rades; gave a most pitsibite account of the nature of the food and the demoralisation of the army. Which of these two deser ters will the Government believe, or lath er will it place the slightest confidence in the statement of either ? If deserters ar received into coufideuce, it would be well never to plsce them on picket duty, for they might be tempted to return to their old quarters with Government arms and something more important, information of Government movements. —Philadelphia Journal. Distinguished Foreign Orncans. — We are having quite a run of foreigners desir ing to enlist for the war as officers. The Comte de Paris and the Duke de Chartre&s have solicited permission to join our army, and their services have been accepted, but positions have not yet been assigned them They will probably be aUawhed to the staff of General McClellan. Major John Fiu roy De Courcy, of England, has been appointed a Lieutenant Colonel, and at tached to McClellan’s Staff. Major De Courcy commanded a Turkish regiment in the Crimean war. He is related by marriage to M. Auatado, the New Grana dian Minister. Major Valentine Bamcn wein, Engineer and Aid-de-Camp to Gari baldi, has been appointed Major of the Fifty-eighth Regiment Ohio Volunteers. He came to tbe Government highly recom mended by Garibaldi. Captain Ernest Baron Von Vegesack, of Denmark, has been appointed a Captain, but not yet as signed to duly. He came recommended by bis sovereign. Lieutenant Oscar Huffman has been appointed a Captain, sod assigned to duty on General Blenker’s Staff. He served through the French campaigns in Algeria, and wears the in sigma of the Legion of Honor. Oscar Ursdeoder has been appointed a First Lieutenant, and attached to Blenkeris Staff.
