The Whigs have a fair chance of re gaining their former ascendency in Mary- j land at the approaching election, owing to the terrible feuds which a short season of success has engendered in the Demo cratic party there. In Baltimore, novi homines (political) carried the caucuses for Congress and local oflicers. Where upon, the wing of the party who (being in the ascendent) have heretofore stickled most vehemently for regular nominations, are doing their best to bring about a Wa-1 terloo defeat of those who have usurped their places through the operation of the new system of selecting nominating caucuses. This is the New York system. That is: opening polls for a primary elec tion. In New York, however, the system has already degenerated into a worse one than it was designed to remedy. Boot heels and brickbats arc nearly always re sorted to, to keep from the primary-elec tion polls quiet and respectable citizens; and when the bullies and rowdy ruffians hired at so much a head to 44 carry the ticket" on such occasions, find that even with such appliances they are about to be out-voted, they resort to the practice of carrying off and breaking up or stripping the ballot-boxes. These remarks are as applicable to the manner in which nomi nations are sought to be obtained by one party, as by the other, in New York. The introduction of the old stump system of the South is the only cure for these evils. In Baltimore, the primary-election sys tem being in its infancy, has not yet be come corrupt; though, judging by the criminations and recriminations passing in the newspapers between the two wings, there can be little doubt that they are destined to become quite as corrupt there in five y??r?, as In any other large city. In the counties of Maryland there is a severe struggle in progress bttween the respective friends of Mitchell, Southron Key, Col. George W. Hughes, and others, candidate* for the gubernatorial nomina tion, in which they have got to bandying epithets and making all sorts of gross charges against the favorite of the oppos ing cliques. The spoils of the National Administration having been nearly all distributed, there can be little hope that they will carry the State in the fall. So much for the effects of a single victory! Poor fellows, it appears to take but slight success to turn their heads. On the other hand, the late defeat of the Whigs there has apparently entirely reunited them, nerving them for the ap proaching contest, and impressing upon thsgr minds the better policy of unity of action and the sacrifice of individual am bition for their common cause. Under such circumstances, the Democracy at a distance may rest assured that there is little hope that their Maryland brethren will improve their late opportunities. A Slight Mistake.?The Philadelphia New was in error in saying yesterday ?< that the editors of the Washington Eve mug Star are office-holders." We beg to inform him that neither of them have any connection with office, other than their printing office. The News will do us a i favor by correcting their mistake. The reliability of the Washington news first! appearing in the Star, is simply the result of the industry with which it is gleaned, and the experience which the gleaner has had in the way of separating the wheat from the chaff; not because the editors are office-holders, as the News erroneously alleges. Thb Wiatuk*.?The Central Ameri #>aniitb rains with which we have been fforwlfld in thin quarter for many days past, are begining to do more harm than good for the fanners in this vicinity, making it impossible to work late corn, which very generally wants working aroung Wash ington. So, al?o does it threaten to injure the root crops, which should about this rime be planted for winter stock feeding ; few fanners within twenty miles of us having yet planted them. Verily, it rained last night as though all the parsons in Connecticut were praying that it might " rain so as to make all creation tprouel tout." Spirit of the Horning Fnu. The Intelligencer seems anxious to nail the Administration to the back of the Union's views upon the Pacific Railroad project, republishing the article on the subject sometime since appearing in that paper, with an intimation that it does so in order io pin the Administration just where the editor (of the Intclligcncer) de sires to have them. The Intclligcncer also republishes articles from the Union and the Lancaster Intelligencer, explana tory of what was recently thought to be the misunderstanding between Mr. Bu chanan and the Administration relative to the English mission, which, by the by, show that there really was no interrup tion of harmony between them. The same paper contains a letter from its Paris correspondent; and another from B. F. Isherwood, Esq., United States Naval Engineer, in defence of the Princeton's boilers, which were constructed under his advice; and also various other papers ol interest. The Union officially announces the in tended speedy departure of Don Calderon de la Barca for Spain, to become Minister of Foreign Affairs there. Mr. Calderon will bear from Washington the regrets of its inhabitants without distinction of party or class. During the many years of his official residence in Washington, he has made no personal enemies, and has actu ally succeeded in securing for his Gov ernment through the universal kind regard felt for him, a consideration in the popular mind here, which is astonishing when one reflects upon the character of its institu tions. It will be long, we presume, ere another despotic Government will have at this point a representative so well calcu lated as Mr. C. so favorably to impress an American community. The Union comes to us this morning embracing a second powerful article upon the Pacific railroad question. Having previously disposed of the constitutional question to his apparent satisfaction, the editor approaches the other obstacles to the scheme, which in his judgement are: First?jealousies concerning the location, with reference to its effect upon the value of property through which it may run. Second?danger to arise from sectional jealousy to be manifested in considering and deciding on the best possible route ; and, last, the question of the manner in which the Government shall aid the un dertaking. That is; whether by con structing it with money from the Treasu ry, or by the applications of portions of the public domain, and also whether it shall be built by the Government, or by a private company or companies to whom the Government shall furnish means for its construction. The Editor very proper ly explains all these difficulties in detail, and urges Congress to come next winter to the consideration of the subjcct in such a frame of mind, as will obviate them, one and all, as far as possible. The Republic emphatically endorses the conduct of Captain Ingraham in the re cent Costa affair, occurring in the harbor of Smyrna. The same paper discusses the wonderful progress of the Anglo-Sax on race on the Pacific and its shores. The Clipper deprecates the bad effects of such squabbles as that lately raging in Baltimore concerning " Blind Johnny." The editor, in this short article, writes evidently without the fear of the propri etors in his mind's eye. It is Connolly's own full of his generous and just senti ments?rather than of the zealous and jealous sectarianism which has so long stained the columns of that paper. The Sun discusses flogging in the Na vy, congratulating the world that it has been finally abolished in the American service, and taking to itself credit for in part bringing about this result. IMPROVEMENT OK Tlffi CENTRE MARKET. Much impatience is being manifested con cerning the progress of the scheme for the reconstruction of the Centre Market House, which appears to lag, if public opinion is correct. No other improve ment is so much wanted in Washington just now, the accommodations both for buyers and sellers in that, our only ex tensive market house, being poorer than those afforded in the main market house of any other city of the size of Washing ton in the United States, we fancy. The city has willed the proposed improvement j with more unanimity than we ever be fore saw manifested upon a question upou which it was possible to divide. We therefore say to the Councils?Gentle men, do push this matter with as little delay as possible. (?7*We see by the Philadelphia Ledger that David Paul Brown, the great Phila delphia Abolitionist lawyer, has revived an old charge of kidnapping a negro against George F. Alberti, a noted slave catcher. CTT'Diiring the past week, seventy-five rowdies were committed to the New York Penitentiary under the vagrant act.

Death of a Naval Captain.?The Navy Department has received official notilieation of the death of Captain McCall, U. S. N., which took placo at Bordentown, New Jersey, on the evening of the 31st ultimo. This death promotes Commander Stribling to be a captain, and Lieutenant Tilton to be a commander. The Hon. Francis B. Cutting, M. C. elect from New York, is in Washington. The Hon. Geokgk Readb Riddle is here also. We presume the visit of the latter is connected with the prospective letting of the construction of the Wilmington (Del.) Custom House. Dh. Hibbard, of New York city, a well known influential Democratic politician in that quarter, is in Washington. We should not be at all surprised on learning that the talented doctor has his eye on the Inspector ship of Drugs for the port of New York, which his ever been a bone of contention, as though, like the coal agoncies for t!ie Navy Depart ment, it affords emoluments unknown to the law. The Treasury Department should cause a thorough investigation into the history of the administration of this particular office from its origination. The Sault St. Marib Land Office.?Jo seph S. Wilson, Esq., Principal Clerk of Pri vate Land Claims in the General Land Office Bureau, who, for some weeks, has been in Wisconsin righting the confusion there, has returned to his post. He has overhauled the whole business of that establishment, from the first official act in 1848. Its affairs have been placed in good order up to the 1st July, 1853. In the swamp selections alone, mora than 15,000 location* were entered, and the omissions in ?lxty-eight counties ?upplie4. It strikes us (hat the Interior Department will find it to the public Interest to keep some one of th*> thoroughly competent employees of the Land Oftce Bureau traveling and inspecting the books and operations of the various Land Offices over the country.

C. Harleston. of Michigan, to be blank agent (salary $1,200) t??? Lewellen Washington, removed. George Petre, clerk (salary $1,200) vicr G. B. Harleston, transferred to the blank agency. Proposed New Washington Papers.?Th? story about the intended establishment of a sort of Western and North-western Democratic organ at this point, is all gammon. Dr. Ba con, the gentleman spoken of as its editor, has no fixed politics, and from his carccr, in con nection with the New York Day Bnvi, he would be the last man in the world who would be selected to conduct a paper by the very parties who, the papers insist, arc about to instal him in such a position. It may be that Mr. Philip Clayton, of (ioor gia, now Sccond Auditor, may shortly spend his own and somebody else's money in -'saving the Union," in the newspaper way, at this point. That Is, if it Is finally concluded to dispense with his cervices in tke Treasury De partment. Wc apprehend that the Adminis tration wero originally strongly inclined to retain him, as he has made an excellent of ficer. But wo presume that if he prefers to '?save the Union"?in consideration of the fact thfkt it is just now on the very verge of dissolution from the herculean labors to that end of its enemies?to the work of protecting it by a continued earnest discharge of his duties as Second Auditor, it strikes us as more than likely that the Administration will feel them selves compelled to let him go; more especial ly if he pleads the ''call" to this work, with which he is said to be impressed. The Secretary or Stath, we learn, will return on Saturday from Berkley Springs. Classification op the Post Officb De partment Clerical Employees, determined on at this date, (Aug. 2d, 1853.)
