comprise the aots regulating the financial affair* of the

Two artiolefl were adopted by the convention, to '
submitted separately to the poo pie, as distlnot prop oeitions,
leaving the residue of the constitution unaff ?cted
by the action thereon. The flJ st restricts the Id jaigratlon

psiying the principal of su<<* debt, w', the Interest aoorued
and acorulng thereon. This ar ,tid? contemplates
a consent on the part of tk? cred' .tort to this propoil_
The principal part of the debt ? 118,344,880; a two mill
tax In 1849^ -will produoe n\>ov,t $200,000. This Ux will
inorease annually at the of about Sfven per oentum
throughout the twenty-flv ? years, reasoning from experience
oonnected with v advancement. Taking
these two propositlens ri* the baal'i for a calculation in
nineteen yean, this t?X will y'.eld $6,194,000, which
leaves unpaid of the,-principal, only $61,380. There is,
however, already accrued $2,? 48,372 of interest, which
will be increased t a about $3 000,000 before this provision
can be earried Into operaU 0n. There will accrue, during
the nineteen years, $3,5',9,910, making the aggregate of
interest due at that tl'jje $6,6&9,916, which, however, Is
subject to constant 'reduction from three-flfths of the
mill and a half fu?d raised, which, in the nineteen
years, amounts to ^3,794,300, leaving interest then really
due amounting t0 $3,776 313, To this add the unpaid
portion ofth?^ principal, $41,380, and we have $3,8*26,996,
which, wi jj0Ut any great lnorease of interest, is yet to
b? diBr ,/>arged. To do this we now have the aggregate
' u'^d produced from the three-flfths of the mill and 'a
4alf tax, and from the two mill tax, whloh, in the six
following years, will produoe $4,358,700, whioh will liquidate
the whole amount, being an exoeis of nearly

Political Affairi in Maryland?The Congrtnional Election

Much Interest is doubtless felt throughout the country
as to the result of the eleotlon in this State for Governor
and the Members of Conitress, en Wednesday week. Une
of the principal battle ground* will be this oltj, where
parties are so closely divided, that one rote either way
may decide the oonteat. Robert Mo Lane, eon ol the Hon
l.ewls MeLane, Is the democratic candidate, and the
Hon. John P. Kennedy la the whig candidate. The former
is the oandidateof the "Custom House clique," and
the latter of the "Court House click," and both have
some considerable opposition to encounter la their own
ranks. The whlgs will have some difficulty in overoom?
ing the objections of the temperance men to Mr. Kennedy,
who defeated the license bill at the last session
though Mr MeLane can hardly attract the vote of the
malcontents, as the clique which he leads U not fitnutical
by any means on liie subject of temperanoe
The war question, and the recommendation of the
Union to seixe the church properly of Mexico aa an indemnity
for the war. will also greatly affect the democratic
vote. A large number of Cathollo democrat* will
not vote at all, whilst some few will perhaps join their
opponents Then again, some of tQe war wnlgs may go
ovi-r to the war party There is also considerable discussion
as to what elfect the absenoe ol full one thouH*ud
voters from the city, uow iu Mexioo,will have on the
different parties Dut 1 anticipate they are pretty equally
divided, but the defeated party, wbichever li may be,
will doubtless give this as the mason of their defeat.?
However, In ten days more the result will be known,
though of course if the whlgs are deleated it must be
through the apathy and neglect ol their own voters, m
they have undoubtedly a large majority in the State
when they use proper exertions to bring it out.
There is nothing new stirring in our olty except fire
riots, and they are new nightly occurrences not worth
