CALL. The Republican votcra of Cecil county arc requested to assemble in Primary Meetings, nt the usual places of holding such meetings in the several Districts of the county, on SATURDAY, sth day of October next, at 3 o'clock p.m., and select live Delegates in each District, to assemble in Convention, nt Elkton, on the following Tuesday, at 11 o’clock a.m., for the purpose of nominating County Officers, anti transacting such other business aa may he brought before it. By order of THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE. The “Situation.” The rebel party have done a great deal of cheering over their “ gains,” recently, but still they foot up two members less iu. the 40th Congress than they did in the 3tlth.~ While their “ gains ” amount to nothing ns far as the national control is concerned, yet they arc legitimate causes for rejoicing in the ranks of treason. Andy Johnson is taking fresh courage, and is more bent on mischief than ever. Every report from the W lute House goes to strengthen the conviction that, backed by the worst spirits of the Copperhead parly, ho is seriously meditating a forcible resistance to the authority of Congress, with Maryland for his arsenal, which has now organized a standing army of 30,000, mainly officered by rebels who have been trained in Loo’s army. But who is to blame for this state of affairs ? for the increased vote of the Copperhead party iu the States that have held elections, and the threatening attitude of the worst man that ever tilled the Presidential chair? Wo point to the trilling, ami unparalled course which Congress pursued at its regular and extra sessions of last winter and summer. The people placed full power in their hands to take charge of the nation and sot Andy Johnson aside forever, but, like McClellan, they (littered away time and (lie means so bountifully supplied by a loyal and magnanimous peojde. The people’s arms must tire of constantly holding up those of their public servants, when those servants seem to wholly misunderstand, or entirely disregard, the duties their constituents require of them. The enthusiasm of the Republican masses euimotAtUiud without intermission, that tension which it has been subjected to, to sustain the cause of freedom, by their incompetent or faithless public servants.— It was the duly of Congress to have impeached and deposed the President. Thu Republican party fully expected this at their hands, and had a right to expect it.— But in place ol thus proceeding like sensible men and legislators, to give quiet and security to tlie Chantry, they attempt to bind him with pack thread, and dissolving, leave the country at his mercy ; its purse and its sword in his hands, to use them at his will on the nation. Is it any wonder that (ho people lire, lose enthusiasm and become disgusted, when they behold, acted over again, the Ponibsulur campaign ol McClellan in the civil management ot affairs, by their chosen representatives in Congress? As the rebels took heart and gained strength from Mc- Clellan’s inaction, tardiness, caution, and cowardice, so Andy Johnson, encouraged by tlie same party that supported Lee, is strengthened and encouraged in his aggressions mid acts of despotism, by a policy similar on the part of Congress. No general ever had a finer army and better opportunity to have ended a civil war at a blow, than McClellan, and lost all, and well-nigh ruined the country by incoinpetency and cowardice. And no representatives of the popular will ever had such a glorious chance to hurl from power a false and ambitious demagogue, anti traitor to liberty, restore peace and prosperity to the country, and the rebel States on an enduring foundation, as the 4(1lh Congress, and yet their halting policy has threatened the nation with a now war and a new upheaval of the elements of prosperity and government. As the rebels with qtiakcr guns frightened McClellan, so Johnson has kept the national Congress at bay with a violent flourish in their faces of the Constitution. What arc all the constitutions in the world for, but to protect liberty ? .And yet, Johnson has used the Constitution wholly in the interest of slavery, while Congress, cowards that they arc, have stood back and allowed him to work his will. Had Congress enfranchised the loyal millions of black men in llio rebel anti Border Stales, and deposed Andy Johnson for obstructing its action, the Constitution would have been vindicated, the cause of liberty advanced, and the chief end of nil written Constitutions gained. One more chance remains to the 40th Congress to retrieve its blunders and the guilty forsaking of its post in the hour of greatest peri I. When it again assembles, it it will act as brave men act in the hour of danger, and lay a strong hand on the recreant Chief Magistrate, enfranchise the oppressed legions of freed men, and at the sumo time visit with righteous judgment, the desecrations of their country’s flag, peace and prosperity will return to the land, and the Republican party will pul till its foes under its feet. The Lord fights on the side of justice aud freedom, but.ho never lulls to rebuke selfishness, cowardice, and inefficiency, with overwhelming disaster. The present leaders of the Republican parly have one more chance to redeem their trust, save the nation and themselves, by executing boldly the will of the loyal people. Let them read their doom, in the boast of the party of treason, who point cxullingly at what they interpret as the omen of their returning power. It is the wrath of God threatening to execute vengeance on the faithless and halting leaders of Israel. Gorky's Lady’s Book for October.—The principal attractions of the number arc summed up as follows by its author:—“Our embellishments for this month cowmericc with a handsome steel plate entitled 1 A Passing Cloud.’ An interesting picture.— The fashion-plate comes next. Six figures, j handsomely colored, and true fashions.— ‘The Farmer’s Daughter.' Ono of those beautiful tinted plates that no other magazine furnishes its subscribers. The next etv- i graving is the -picture of a young girl, who ] has, in the words of the title, become ‘ A Credit to her Mother.” Two fancy halt ' dresses, representing a milkmaid and a gardener; fall promenade suit, and nine fall styles of dresses for children. The stories in this number have been selected from the , contributions of our best writers. ‘The * Bale Side/'by Marion Harland, is ft story of full interest, anti a lesson for all, i The Tote of Cecil. The*vot in thi county on the Constitution fools np 2085, while the registered vote is Kill, showing nn absence from the polls of JO2O votes. The refistery shows something in excess of the entire voting population of the county, on account of deaths, removals, etc., which were not brought to the notice of the registering officers, and hence not taken of!' the lists. Three hundred votes will certainly cover this deficit, which being deducted will leave 1320 voters in the comity who did not turn out to the last election. — That the great majority of these were Republicans, there can be no reasonable doubt. In one of tlie districts where the voters were all known, a careful count proved that but tl of the .rebel party absented themselves from the polls, while 33 Republican voters remained away from the election. It is scarcely possible to vote a district closer than within nine votes ot its party registry; and it is safe to conclude that the rebel party at the late election had out their whole strength. Taking the facts and figures in the case as revealed by the election of Wed uesday week, there is not a doubt that the Republican parly have a majority of voters in this county, and nothing is needed but a thorough organization, and the proper effort at the November election, to carry thecounty by a safe Republican majority. In view of these facts, which must be evident to every man who will take the trouble to study the returns, our duty is plain. We owe it to the country, we owe it to ourselves individually, and the Republican party, to go forward. Nominate the- best men for all offices to be filled at the coming election and rest not till every Republican voter is brought out that is able to go to tlie polls in Novein ber, and the victory is ours. The Republican party must not despair because nn apathy has been allowed to settle upon it, and we find a full thousand of our voters absenting themselves from the polls at the late election. Victory is within our grasp and we will be recreant to our duty if we do not seize it. Up and at them Rads, and the day is ours. ■ ■ - ■ .. . Democratic Nominations. The American gives tho’followiiig account of the nominations by tlie Rebel party of Baltimore. The same policy, we doubt not, will be pursued throughout the State. Let those who called themselves “ Conservatives,” and left the Union party in the hope of getting oiliec by helping the enemies of their Slate and country into power, read : The nominations for city judicial officers, mode by the Democratic Convention on Tuesday, demonstrate that the party of which tlie Convention was the organ is fully prepared to place itself upon the platform of pro-Rebel, Slate Rights Democracy.— There was not a nomination made in which this fact was not distinctly anti boldly assorted. Secession antecedents, sympathy with the Rebellion, or service in the Rebel army were emphatically marked as the claims which the Convention was prepared to promptly appreciate. Of tlie Judges nominated two were imprisoned during the war for ailedged treasonable practices; another was the chief legal adviser of the Bolicc Commissioners and of commanding General Trimble in tlie attempt to bar the way to the National Capital in 18(11; another is the brother of a noted guerrilla lender, and still another is reported to have been on GoneraOEee’s Stall' during some part of the rebellion. The same rule was followed in the distribution of the Clerkships and Orphans’ Courts Judgeships. Not a man against whom it could be alleged that he ever had an aspiration for the success of the Union arms, or who cherished a feeling of loyalty for the Government, secured the approval of the Convention. The suspicion of such a feeling was political death to any nominee. The so-called Conservative section of the party was slaughtered unmercifully, and scarcely found any one to mourn its relentless taking off. Ex-Postmaster anil ami ex-Revenue Collector Purnell received more Itisses than votes, though he preceded Mr. Swann in his betrayal of tlie Union party, and fondly supposed that ho had claims that could not be disregarded. ■■ - -4 >- .■ Tuk Atlantic Monthly for October.— The following are the contents.

The meetings arc railed for Satciimay, next, and it is the duty of all Republicans, who can do so, to attended, and select their very best men as delegates. Lot the Republican party place a ticket in tlie field composed of sterling, influential, intelligent men, and light onr way to victory in this county like a Greek phalanx, or Roman legion. Let the Republican party contend, this fall, not for office, but for tincause of justice and humanity. ' The Question Settled.— Those eminent men, Dr. James Clark, Physician to Queen Victoria, and Dr. Hughes Bennett, say that consumption can he cured. Dr. Wisler knew this when ho discovered his now widely known Balsam of Wild Cherry, and experience has proved the correctness of his opinion. * , Reception of Sheridan. —The J'resa of Thursday says: The welcome to “Phil Sheridan” last evening was the most fervent reception ever extended to any public man with the exception of Abraham Linqpin. The people greeted him with electric enthusiasm. The Copperhead friends of the' soldiers were only recognized during the evening by thior wretched abuse oflhccolored Union soldiers iu the parade. Our Yof.No Folks for October hits been received. It is an excellent juvenile monthly, its pages always containing that which will servo to Instruct and entertain the young. Ticknor and Fields, Boston. We publish the rebel programme for the new rebellion on page of The Whig this week. Let eyory reader ponder it* focal Jlflalro. 1 The first heavy frost of the season appeared on Thursday morning last. Contract Awarded. —Mr. Perry Litzen‘ berg, of Elkton, has been awarded the cons tract for painting the new hull. I ~ , General Sheridan passed Elkton in a ’ special train for Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon, where a grand reception from the Ilepublicans awaited him. The County Statement. —Much of onr ’ space is occupied this week, by the pnblica-1 tion of the statement of county expenses, ’ which will he interesting to every taxpayer, * and which we offer as an excuse for lack 1 of our usual variety on first page. I Contract Awarded. —The contract tor building a bridge over Plum Creek, in Elk > Neck, was awarded, by the County Commisi sioners, to D. McHugh and S. F. Fuller. — The bridge is to be constructed on the How > Truss plan, which is used by the Railroad j company. This plan of bridge is without i roof and is considered superior and cheaper t to the old arch and roofed plan. t Hail Storm. —Elkton was visited on Wed) nesday afternoon by a severe hail storm.— The hail fell for a few minutes in a shower as large as walnuts. A strong wind accompanied the icy shower. Beyond the smashtug of some glass, wo heard of no material I damage. The new colored church seems j to have suffered most from the storm, some ( forty or fifty lights having been broken out of the windows. A number or \oung Men met up stairs, i in the Court House, last Monday evening, in i reference to the cal! for the organization of 5 a Young Men’s Christian Association.— t Committees on permanent organization were > formed, and if our citizens will lend a help> ing hand, the movement promises to bo very - successful. Let llug young men of the town take hold of this matter vigorously, and let the fathers and mothers, and all good citizens aid the enterprise by substantial con-1 tribulions. } Larue Wheat Crop. —Mr. .las. MeKatie, t of 4th District, this county, raised the pie. sent season 33 bushels of wheat per acre on , leu acres, weighing til pounds to the bushel, j 1 his field was stubble turned in. On another lot of ten acres seeded after removing a crop of corn last fall, be raised 25 bushels , per acre weighing 5!) pounds to the bushel, f the latter lot having been stacked out and was damp, which accounts for the light \ weight. This wheat was clear of cockle, cheat, and all other kinds of trash. The first lot was sold at $2.50 per bushel, for j seed, the purchasers taking it as fast as it , ran through the fan. These crops will I challenge Maryland for their equal. ; Deceased. —Mr. John P. Dennett, a citizen ot Elktop, and well-known throughout the county, died, after a long illness, on ' Tuesday morning last. Mr. Dennett was • twice elected County Commissioner from the 3d district, by the old Whig party, and during the war he was Provost Marshal for this county. Information has reached here to the (“fleet that Thos. J. Kurtz, sou of Rev. M. D. Kurtz, (who was pastor of the Elklon M. E. - Church, last year,) has died of yellow fever, at Galveston, Texas. In March last ho received a clerkship, under Oon. Griffin, his former commander, and left early in April for his destination, little dreaming that he would ne’er again return alive. Mr. Kurtz had scarcely, if at all, reached Ids majority, was a very intelligent and clever young man, and it is with sorrow wo have to record his mclancholly fate. Silvers’ Patent Uiioom.—Mr. A. 11. Pond, who is pretty generally known to the people of Cecil county, ns an itenerant, clock cleaner, is now agent for the sale of this broom. For cheapness, durability, elasticity and lightness it is superior to any broom ever manufactured. The fixtures consist of a brass cap and handle (the latter wood) and a wood screw which is inserted in the end of the handle. This screw is provided with an eye into which the ends of the corn are inserted. When foil the brush is drawn into the cap and the handle screwed on when the broom is complete. One bundle and fixtures will, with ordinary ogre, last a generation, nnd with the cap and screw any person can make a broom. The price of handle nnd fixture is $1.50. Mr. Pond’s post ollico is Principle, in this dounty. One of those brooms can be seen at The Whig ollico. The American Agriculturist says :■ Silvers’ Patent Droom. —This is a novelty, certainly. Dy menus of a cap and screw the brush can be removed at any time. Wo have no broom-corn at hand to test the removal of the old brush and the putting in of new, but we do not see why it cannot bo readily done by any one, nnd farmers thus raise a little plat of broom-cotn and make their own brooms after buying h patent handle. The one we arc ns ini/ /ms a superior daslicili/. Assault with intent to Ron.—On Saturday afternoon last, Mr. Jesse Vickers, a very respectable farmer, of Elk Neck, was attacked and badly beaten, by a ruffiian, by the name of Zeb. Short, who appeared to have been lying in wait for him. Mr. Vickers had been in town and was on his way home, and ns he drove into the bridge at Stilus’ Mill he passed Short, to whom he spoke as he drove by. When the vchicblo had passed him, Short sprang in behind, and seizing Mr. Vickers, jerked him back over a plow that was in the wagon and commenced beating him. violently in the face.— The cries of some women at the opposite end of the bridge, brought to the rescue, a man by the name of Thomas who released Mr. Vickers from the hands of the highwayman, who was afterward arrested by Constable Denny, assisted by (woof Vickers' sons. Short had a hearing before Justice Howard and was committed to Jail to await the action of tho Grand Jury. Mr. Vickers, we learn had a considerable snm of money about his person, and it is believed that it was the intention of Short to rob him, The ruffian is lately from Delaware where ho had been confined in Jail it is reported. The attempt to murder and rob or. the highway in broad day light, and in a place so public, has but few parallels in audacity. We hope the viluin will get his deserts. There are a number of worthless characters who live in the barrens near Elkton, that should be made examples of. They frequently assemble in oor streets on Saturday nights and bolt) drunken carnivals, Religious Notice.— Rev. Alfred Cookman, ofPhilndelphia, will preach next Sabbath, morning nnd evening, hi the Methodist Church of Elkton. Recently, a minister from Baltimore exchanged pulpits with Mr. Matlack. lie said to his city church, en returning, that if they wanted a model to build from, they would do well to visit Elkton first. Mr. Matlack will bo absent at the West, 1 for three Sabbaths following. Rev. Thos. Meyers, of Baltimore, nnd Rev. Mr. Mclntire, 1 of Elkton, will supply the pulpit. National Council Order or United American Mechanics.—This Body was in session in Baltimore on Tuesday last. A 1 considerable amount ofdmsiness was trans’ acted of importance to the Order generally. ‘ The following officers were elected and installed for the ensuing year:—Councillor, r Joseph 11.

Redstreako, of Fa.; Treas_ urer, John Walker, Jr., of Del.; Marshal, , Joseph Mancel, of Del.; Protector, Win, C j Hasson, ot Md.; Doorkeeper, Edward S. I Andrews, of N.J. The national councillor r appointed the following deputies and installing officers: George E. Harris, E. S. Andrews, John W.

Church, in this f town, was numerously attended, and the ■ subject was bandied by the lecturer in a - manner which presented the varying scenes • of camp and field life, most vividly before ► the audience. Starling with the raw cavalry i recruit, on the prniries of Illinois, every step t of tho soldier of tho Republic was traced to the Gliickahominy, and that miserable, morlifting (to every loyal heart) Peninsular campaign of McClellan displayed to the audience, in a series of the most striking life’ like pictures, both grave and gay. The horrible drilling, and camping, and wearywaiting on the Potomac through that long t . Autumn ot 01, which every loyal heart now v remembers with a sigh, terminating in the , wet winter, with our 150,000 soldiers lying in tho mud, nnd dying by thousands, while j an enemy of 37,000, at Manassas, looked on t witl ‘ amazement, was described, as none but a master can describe it. W e have not space to review the lecture, ' n p r even to present some of the life-like pictures drawn with such beauty and power, I b / t,le speaker. The subject, “Recollections of Army Life,” comprises three lectures, that delivered on Tuesday evening being the first of the series, leaving the t <,r and Army of the Potomac, after the battle i of Williamsburg, looking across the Chicki “hominy at the rebels. Every one who ! h pnl 'd t' lo lecture on Tuesday evening will [ be anxious to hear the whole series, when . the more stirring events of subsequent battles and campaigns will be described. 1 lie choir lent much to tho entertainment by the fine musical treat they had prepared for the evening.

Hecknrt the wharf long used 1 ns a landing for Captain VanneOlan's steam terry boats, and have already improved the water (rout of the property. Meetings Imvf been bold for the pur pose of organizing liternry societies. The , movement deserves success. Unfortunately, all such organizations formed here, hitherto have had but a brief existence. This morning, Cant. Vanneman took the Dublin Sunday-school on an excursion to Havre do Grace, returning at 5 p.m.— I he noticeable fact was that some had never before seen cither a .steamboat or cars. A lew wild pigeons have been shot, and sportsmen are looking for tho northwest winds to increase the sport. Squirrels aie reported plentiful in tho woods; hut the prospect for partridges is very slim. The farmers are busy cutting corn and seed clover, and sowing wheat. Some wheat m the vicinity is four inches high, nnd some fields are not yet plowed for it,—a striking contrast ot opinions as to the proper lime for seeding. Our town greatly excited for a week past because of the disappearance of a young lady. She visited Baltimore, was not heard from lor some days,.nnd all kinds of rumors wore rife. The mystery was exploded by her safe return on Tuesday, when her visit was completed. Hereafter, let young ladies notify their friends of their destination, their whereabouts, and tho time >t their return ; it may prevent kind hearts from fcufl’eriug. - -- i ■< ■ - -i a ■ Sheridan’s Views.— Gen. Sheridan, in conversation with Messrs. Evans and Henszoy, ot tho Philadelphia Committee of reception, speaking of the correct policy to ho pursued by tho country, said .-—“There is but one policy to pursue, and that is to carry out the measures of Congress, according to the interpretation which that body has given to those measures.” He also said that every one of his official acts, in his late position, had been endorsed by Grant, and were virtually the acts of that general. Referring to tho probable dangers ol the present situation, General Sheridan used the following language : “ If the rebels get in power through the policy of Andrew Johnson, the rebellion is made honorable and Unionism dishonorable ; and so many soldiers have been sacrificed in the suppression of the rebellion, lam in favor Of depriving the rebels of their political power by giving tho colored Unionists tho right of franchise.” WHITE €KSf HAVTU). • The highest Cush Price paid for White Corn, 1 at Hootfe Mill, 4th District. ’ 1 jVu 10, 17 MILLED B.
