Garnsey, Ellis Friend of Etna. While the committee was out, Joseph Bartlett, Esq., addressel the meeting. Mr. McCrillis th. n reported the following res olntions, prefacing them by eloquent and earnest remarks. The resolutions were received with unbounded applause, and unanimously adopted. Resolved, That we will stand by the Union, fight for the Union, and maintain the Union, and not a grain of sand belonging to the Union shall ever be su. rendered to foes abroad or rebels at home, and the union of all Union men for the sake of the Union is the nnchangable will of the Democrats and Republicans of Penobscot. Resolved , That the Republicans and Democrats of Penobscot are a band of brothers in this terrible crisis cf the countrys history, and politicians of every hoe and dye are requested to dry up until the Stars and Stripes float again in security over every portion of the Union. Resolved, That this war is in the defence of the Un on and of the flag a war against rebels and to sustain all the constitutional rights of every part of the Union, and peace can and will bless the land whenever the rebels will lay down their arms; and we will welcome back into our glorious galaxy of States every erring sister State, and kill the fatted calf and rejoice over a PAVtatiHailMM ms ...I. I - J b V Constitution maintained, a Union preserved and a nation saved. Resolved, That the cry of peace is but a thin disguise of disunion , and is argued only by disunion ists ; and the terms of their peace is the dissolution of the Union, the disgrace of the flag, and the destruction of civil liberty; and we are for no such peace. Resolved, That our brave solJiers who are fighting our battles, must and shall be maintained, and it is the duty of those who stay at home to pay the bills, and we will pay them in spite of tbe sneaking whinings of traitors, and we will pay as long as they will fight, and both W.ll fight and pay and pay and fight, until every tory and rebel in the land shall acknowledge there is a God in Israel, and bow down in reverence and obedienne to the flag of the Country, and acknowledge obedience to the great, indissoluble, and immortal Republic. Resolved, That as citizens of Maine, we are Sroud of the valor exhibited by tbe troops of laine in the recent contest at Bull Run, and as residents of the valley of the Penobscot, are especially proud of the gallant conduot of the Second Miine Regiment ol Maine Volunteers in that battle, which, in its charges with those of the Third Regiment of Connecticut Volunteers, up the bill upon the enemys artillery and infantry. re described by the commander of the brigade, as never, in his opinion, surpassed. Resolved, That the coolness and courage manifested by the officers and privates of that Regiment have placed them in the rank of veteran soldiers, and rendered them worthy of the highest regard of their fellow citizens. Resolved, That we hold in grateful admira-tioa the memories of Sergeant Wm. J. Deane and A-J. Moore, who Ml bearing the beautiful Regimental flag from the Maine ladies in Cali-fcrma; Copt. E. If.

George P. Sewall, Esq., if Oldtown, was then milled upon, and patriotically and ably responded. -ARKKWOOX. The hall was thronged at the hour of sojournment, 3 oclock, a largo number of ladies being in the galleries. A- H. Briggs, Esq., of this city; Hon. John H. Bjoe, our Representative in Congress; and Rev. Dr. Tefft, - each responded to calls for speeoh, and spoke eloquently in behalf of the Union, and in opposition to the wickedness of the Southern rebellion. At the cioee of the stirring appeals of Dr. Tefft, which were received with tumults of applause, the meeting adjourned till 74 oclock in the evening, A procession was then formed in front of the hall, and was escorted through the principal streets by the military, as mentioned in another article. The procession was nnder the direction of Col. Wm. H. Mills, the President of the meeting; the military under command of CapL Bugbee. EVENING. A fall audience was present, the galleries be ing filled with ladies. The President exhibited on the platform some of the trophies of the war. The tent, camp stool, and liquor decanter of General Bonham of South Carolina, taken by onr Second Maine Regiment. The tent is marked, Staff 2d Reg-imemt S. C. V. South Carolina Volunteers.

A generous subscription was taken np tor the widow and children of Mr. Starbird, of Frankfort, who was killed in the battle near M rnassas. The audience joined in a national song, and then the meeting adjourned with three rousing cheers for the Union. Correspondence of the Whig A Courier. Augusta, Aug. 15. Messrs. H heeler Lynde The issue made up in the Convention in this city yesterday, was this: unqualified opposition to the present war, or opposition to the war ex cept so far as to suppress rebellion and maintain the Constitution and the Laws of the United States. When the Convention.on a test vote, each member voting as his name was called, expressed opposition to the war thus qualified.then it eras that Hon. Albert G. Jewett, one cf the Vice Preeidents, in words of scorching invective, and laying bare the scope and effect of the decision of the Convention, indignantly resigned his position and withdrew from the Convention. Hon. James H. Bradbury, rising to an appreciation of the result, thundered in the ears of the Convention that they had voted substantially that they were opposed to war even to sustain the government and support the laws. A. W. Johnson told them that they had substantially declared to the heroic Jameson, and Berry, and Knowles, and other democratic officers and their democratic soldiers, that they had made fools of themselves; and in snch declaration he wonld not join, while a spark of manhood was left in him. Hon. S. H. Blake, Hon. B. A. G. Fuller, Hon. Joseph S. Rice, and others did a similar work ; and shaking the vile dnst of a traitorous Convention from theirfeet, 'they left the hall to the number of one hnndred and eighty five persons, with a majority of the officers, and organized a new Convention, to reflect tbe loyal spirit of the Democratic party, and put is nomination, on a respectable platform, CoL C. D. Jameson for Governor of Maine. The split in the Democratic party is effectual and decisive. Tie Secession Convention not Held. The Convention called by the Breckinridge Democrats, of all those opposed to this unholy war, was not held in this city yesterday, either publicly or privately, so far as we can ascertain. The Mayor, on Wednesday evening, received the pledge of tbe leaders of that party in this city, that it should not be held, and if any proceedings or resolutions are published abroad as coming from such a Convention, the pec pie may understand that they were not paased in any open or public meeting, bat in some dark corner of the city. There was an immense Mass Meeting of Union men, however, at Norombega Hall, attended through the day by thousands of people, (the proceedings of which are elsewhere given) and the streets were thronged from morning tili night, by crowds of loyal citizens of this and neighboring places. The best of order prevailed, and we have heard of not a single breach of the peace ol any description. In the afternoon, there was a grand procession of the people through the principal streets, under escort of the Independent Volunteers nnder command of Lieu t. Harlow, the Bangor Light Infantry, CapL Israel B. Norcross, and the Brewer Artillery, with their brass pieces, and also armed as infantry the whcle battalion being nnder command of CapL Bugbee of the Independent Volunteers. The National Flag was carried at various points in the oolumn. Music was furnished for the occasion by Roundss Brass Band. I Bloceadb. The New Orleans Crescent of a late date says that purchases of cotton for the Mexican market are shipped by a sea route at least once a week from that city. On this sabject the Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia says : . The navy department, at last, fully appre-14es importance of the work before them. A horde of Southern privateers Is preying on our commerce. They have already captured fifty-two merchant vessels, four of which, loaded with loe, were bound for Washington. In the meantime, tbe blockade fa incomplete, aad is so understood in England a ad France. Tbe agents of these nation are now In Richmond, New Orleans and Savannah, baying ootton and tobacco, which they confidently expect to ship, in spite of the blockade, ia the fall., A the Assistant Secretory of the Navy to aware of theae facta. - We must have, immediately, a fleet of gunboats aBd Meamers that will make the . blockade effect ie; ead tbe Secretary to determined that sash a float afcaQ be in the Southern water, in thirtydiya iwJLng 1mm And bin of TIkwab A Bfokwith, Beifaet, wan .total dtrojed,by itmi, week. X 4- .-ris - 4'1 GO R DAILY The Dmqcratio State Convention. Upqa dfeOpfot the an&wal reeolutionsidf An grata: on" Wednesday, by a majority of sixty .the loyal Democracy, wh- hold to maintaining the government of onr fathers, sue willing to make sacrifices for it, retiredfrom the Convention and held a true Democratic one, consisting of all the minority comprising the whole of the Aroostook delegation, all the Hancock bat two delegates, the major part ot Penobscot, Kennebee; Franklin, Sagmdahoo end portions of other delegations. Hon. Arno Wiewell, of Ellsworth , was chosen President The resolutions were sound and patriotic. CoL Charles D. Jameeoa was nominated candidate for Governor. A State Committee was selected, and a committee to pat forth an address to the people of the State, of winch Daniel Pike is Chairman. The Bangor Times (democratic) says: The action of the Convention does not represent the Democratic party of the State of Maine. To admit it would be a libel on its past history, which has been one of fidelity to the oonntry in time of danger, and to tbe Stars and Stripes under all circumstance. The old elements of disloyalty the ex-office holders of the late administration and their sects Sion sympathizing allies have been most industriously at' work all over the 8tate to send delegates to the Convention while the true Democracy have been comparatively idle. The resolutions adopted.we believe, are directly counter to the words and spirit of the great leader of the democracy, whose last words were uttered for a united support of tbe Government in its self preservation and the suppression of rebellion, and who declared that there conld be no neutrals in this war. As it is the highest duty of the Democracy, as well as all true American citizens to stand by the Flag, and by tbe Constitutional authorities to whose charge its honor and the integrity of the Uni n are entrusted, they will go straight forward in the path of their duty regardless of the coldness and the defection of former friends, and though their ranks be decimated aad thinned by desertion, they will cilng to the old honored Flag and to the prond mottoes which the gallant and patriotic leaders who now rest in honored graves have bequeathed to them. How the Rebels Obtain Funds. The W ash-ington correspondent of the Philadelphia Press says: Jeff Davis is a good financier. He commands and it is done. To have the army well supplel with the sinews of war, he orders a trunk full of bank notes to be printed, and then placed in the hands of a general of the army. To give these value, he sends the President of the bank along with the army, to sign these notes as they are required. It is stated, on the best authority, that the military chest of the rebel General Garnett, which was captured by onr troops, was found to consist ot sheets of the unsigned notes of the Fairmount Bank. The President of the bank accompanied General Garnett as one of his staff, signing snch qnan. tities as were wanted from time to time. How They Manage it out South. The secession sympathizers at the North complain if they are called traitors, and claim the right of talking against the war and against the Government as much as they please. Their Southern brethren, however, (whose cause is generally de-fendep by them) do not see things in that light If a man undertakes to talk what they consider treason, they hang hm, or drive him out of the Confederacy. They dont allow anything said, written or printed, which can give aid and comfort to the cause of the Union. For in stance, the new Governor of Texas, in a recent proclamation says: No act of treason, whether it'msy consist of aid and comfort to the enemy, OR IN LAN GU AG E WRirTEN. PRINTED OR SPOKEN, VS HICH IS INTENDED TO COMFORT OR EN COURAGE THEM, will be knowingly permitted. Citizens of the loyal States will no longer be permitted to visited Texas, or, if any are now within her limits, they depart within twenty four hoars. New Regiments. Twenty new regiments are forming in Philadelphia. Some of them have already enrolled three or four companies each. The Governor of Connecticut will shortly issue an order for three or five new regiments The entire number provided for by the two mil-mion bill is ten regiments, seven of which will be mastered in for the war. The O&igin or Those Fibst Families. We find in the London American the following account of the origin of the F. F. V.a who pride themselves so much upon their loDg line of descent, and their present aristocratic superiority over the mod-sills of New England. Onr London cotemporary says: We have read and heard so mnch of late of the fit st families of Virginia, significantly denoted by the letters F. F. V., that we have been induced to look a little ioto their early history. It is a most remarkable circumstance that these F. F. V.s have grown so numerous that they are to be found almost everywhere, especially where a foreign embassy, or consulate, or Seeie-tarjship, or even a good clerkship, is available. They swarm in the public offices in Washington, as well as nnder public pay in England, and on the continent So numerous have they become that no man has within the last thirty years ever a V trginian who belonged to the second families of Virginia. All then, except the slaves are to he counted as among tbe F. F. V s. The old st families of England love to go back to the earliest days, and with pride point ont the illns-trions founders of their families. We have authentic history which goes back to 1607, when the first settlement was made in Virginia, from which we quote: Of the one hundred and five persons on the list of emigrants destined to remain, there were no men with families, thaw were bat twelve laborers, and very few mechanics. Tbe rest were oompesed of gentlemen of fortune, and of persons of no occupation, mostly of idle and dissolute habits, who had been tempted to join the expedition through curiosity or the hope of gain a oompany bat poorly calculated to plant an agricultural State in the wilderncm. Wilsons American History, p. 162, . New emigrants arrived in 1609, most of whom wars profligate and disorderly persons, who had been sent off to escape a worse destiny at borne. Wilson, p. 166. In the month of August, 1620, a Dutch man of war entered James river and landed twenty negroes for sale. ' This was the commence men t of negro slavery in tbe colonies. Wilson, p. 169. - ' ' At this time there were very few women in tbe colony. Ninety women of reputable character were soon after sent ova-, and theoolonists purchased them for wives, the price of .-wife ruing from otao hnodred and twenty to one hundred and fifty poandsWlf Tobacco.

Mr. E. enjoyed the advantages of a long drill under HarJee at Savannah, but took occasion to leave for the Nona when be found that staying longer would not save his business, and would oblige him to fight against the Union. Belfast Journal. Babx Bcesed. We are informed by the proprietor of the Carmel Express, that a barn belonging to Mr. J. A. Worcester of Carmel, was burned yesterday afternoon together with a large amonnt of hay, &c. The barn was connected with the housl by an L, but, fortunately the other buildings were saved. The fire was occasioned by a little child who hid a burning stick in the hay. 1 Livermore Wide Awake.

On Sunday, by invitation, the first two companies, together with one from North Turner nnder Capt. Farrar, attended Rev.

Tbe Sags of the companies were hung each side of the pulpit, and a large one presented them by the ladies, was gracefully festooned over the doors. After the usual preliminary services, an admirable sermon, f ill of religious patriotism, was preached by Rev. Mr. Johnson. Army Contracts. Messrs.

Tbe President has issued the following proclamation for a National Fast on the last Thursday in September: A PROCLAMATION. By the President of the United Slates or America. Whereas, A joint commttee of both Houses of Congress has waited on the President of the United States, and requested him to recommend a day of Poblic Ham-l-ation, Prayer aad Fast ng, to be observed by the people of the United States with religions eolennities, and the offering of fervent supplications to Almighty God for the safety and welfare of these States. His blessings on their arms, and a speedy restoration of peaoe. And whereas. It is fit snd becoming in al people at all times to acknowledge and revere the Supreme Government of God, to bow in humble submission to His chastisements, to eon fess and deplore their sins and transgressions in the full conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to pray with all fervency and contrition for the pardon of their past offences, and for a blessing upon their present snd prospective action; And whereas, .When oar beloved country, once, by tbe blereing of God, united, prospering and happy, is now afflicted with faction and civil war, it to peculiarly fit for us to recognize the band of God in this visitation, and in sorrowful remembrance of onr own faults and crimes as a nation an-1 as individuals, to humble ourselves before Him, snd to pray for His mercy to pray that we may lie spared further punishment, though justly deserved; that our arms may be blessed and made effectual for the re-establishment of law, order and peace throughout oar country, and that tbe inestimable boon of civil and religi-us liberty, earned, trader His guidance and blessing, by the labors and suffer-ngs of onr fathers, may be restored in all its original exce!leaee.j-Tbetefore I, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, President "of tbe United States, do appoint tbe last Thunrtoy in September next as s day of HamiliatioB, Prayer and Fasting for all the people of th nation, sod I do earocstiy recommend to alb tha peepte. eapecUlly to all ministers snd teachers of rel-gioa of all denominations, and to all beads of families to observe snd keep that dsyaceordiof to the! r" several creeds and modes 'of worship ia all humility, and with all religious solemnity, to the end that the united prayer. f the nation may aamqd to tha Throne of Grace, and bring down ptontifW bleating npos out owe eooatry.

The Ismdon Times publishes a list of remedies for the Potato disease. The most efficaoions is one disoofered by !., of Hornsey, which consists in pressing down the haulmthus: He set his potatoes in a double row instead of single, the two rows ooon-pying a foot in width, with a foot of vacant apace outside eaoh row. They were planted on the level, and hoed up at the usual time. Now oomes the important step. When the nanlm had reached its full growth, about the 1st of July, be turned it over right and left towards the vacant spares by adding earth between the rows and pressing down the haulm, so aa to drive it from the ereot position, and allow the rain, instead of discendiog to the roots, to run off upon the vacant space. Not one in a hnndred perished. Report says that Senators Breckinridge and Powell of Kentucky will resign. If they have a spark ot honor remaining they will do so, especially since their State, by its recent vote, has so signally and so gloriously rebuked and ignored their treason. Breckinridge confessed openly in the Senate that his sympathies were with the South the rebels but that he was held back by the position of his State. What right has a heart-rebel to sit in the Senate as Representative of a loyal State T Bath Times. SPECIAL .NOTICES.
