Jarboe, Esq., tendered to the or phans' court on yesterday his resignation as register of wills of Prince George's county, an office that he has filled for many years with great credit to himself and usefulness to the people of the county. The court appointed Adolphus H. Lambert to fill the vacancy oc casionrd by Mr. Jarboe's resignation. A number of applications were made to the orphans' court of this county at their meeting yesterday to have nepro children bound for a term of years under the apprentice laws of Maryland. In all cases the applications were lor orphan children, or by the consent of pa rents. The court decided that Gen. Wallace, of Baltimore, had, by military order, taken out of the hands of the civil authorities the man. agement and care of this class of persons, and that therefore they declined to act upon the ap plications at this time. Pursuant to a public call, a large number of farmers and others met at the Court Honse, in Upper Marlborough, on Wednesday last, the 9th instant, to lake into consideration the con dition of the negroes now residing in the county, declared free by the proclamation of the Gov ernor, and te adoptsome uniform rate of wages, and mode of hiring. Hon Samuel H. Berry was called to the chair, and Adolphus H. Lam bert, Esq , was appointed secretary. It was suggested that a committee be appointed to recommend a plan of action to the meeting s and the following gentlemen were appointed to compose said committee: Vansville?George W. Puvall, of George; Marlborough?Henry W. Clagett, Robert A. Clagett, Samuel H. Berry, Wm. P. Pumphrev, and Charles Clagett; Nottingham?Wm. N. Horsett, Alexander P. Hill, Dr. John H. Skin ner, and Fielder Bowie; Piscataway?Daniel R. Dyer; Queen Anne?Thomas E. Berry, Richard L. Ogle, and Geo. A Mitchell; Sur ratts?Wm. A. Jarboe. The committee, after consultation, submitted the following resolutions to the consideration of the meeting: 1. liesolved, That it is the duty of the citizens of Prince George's county to take into their most serious consideration the present con dition of the negro population, declared free by the recent proclamation of Gov. Bradford, and it is the duty of every good citizen to con form to the following resolves, as the best means to insure the well-being of the citizens of the county, as also that of the negroes. That we hereby agree that we will not em ploy any negro lor ordinary field service, ex cept by the year, and we earnestly recommend it to the citizens of the county. That we will not offer any inducement to any negro to leave his or her present employer with a view of procuring his or her services. That it being the desire of this meeting to do ample justice to this unlortunate people, we recommend the following scale of wages. First class negro men, wages not to exceed .*8120 per annum and board; first class negro women, without children, wages not to exceed 860 per annum and board; boys, under eighteen years, wages not to exceed 560 per annum and board. That the subjeet of these resolutions be rec ommended to the consideration and adoption of the people of this county, and that their con currence in said resolutions be expressed at meetings to be held in the several election dis tricts at the usual places of holding elections or such other places as may be determined on by the people in said districts, on the 19th day of November. The recommendations of the committee were unanimously adopted. Fixakcial.?The New kork Evening Post says: The most important topic in Wall etreet this morning is tbe gratifying advance in all des cription of government bonds. This is attri buted in part to the rapid decadence of the re bellion, and in part to the increased demand for these safe lucrative securities by investors in all parts of the country.

The prices on most descriptions of goods ranged from six to eight per cent, over former sales. Notwithstanding the advance, many lota were passed, the prices not meeting the views of the holders. Messrs. Wilmerding, Hoguet <k Co. bad a special sale of hosiery, gloves, ice., the importation of Messrs. Hous man & Co. Prices were firm, and, if anything, a fraction higher. Some of the heavier style of gloves met with a ready sale, and were gener ally duplicated. Messrs. Kobbe Sl Cor lies had a large and desirable sale of millinery goods, the importation of Messrs. Solellac Freres. The atyles and descriptions of the goods were very fine, and prices were fully sus tained. Mesirs. Wilmerdings &c Mount had a small assorted cash sale, among which were a few domestics. The attendance, however, was small, and the prices realized were only mod erate. "? .

Our soldiers immediately ordered them to surrender, each ot onr men confronting one ot the Federals.

"AJ.xiouson account or the wound of their lea's.-', the other two Confederates betook theatre] ves to hasty preparations for bringing off their comrade. In haste and contusion of the moment one of the Federal prisoner* made his escape; the other was brought off. The person of Captain Meigs was notexamiued tor the same reason, ?nd the opportunity of cap turing the valuable papers he bore was lost, it was not until afterwards, Indeed, that it was known who he was. "It will be pleasing to ourrpaders to be in formed that the wounded Confederate was safely brought within our lines, and that his condition is now very promising.

If there %ras any evidence needed to couflnn General Sheridan's belief that he was mar tiered by some of the farmer guerrillas that infest that region, it will be tound in the above Rebel story: th? anonymous Kcnuts were farmers inside cur lin<r, ar.d sallied out to bushwhack onr orderlies and play thespv. The crrferlv who escaped says ttiese farmers were riding along.and had on oil cloth blankets; they were thought to be our men, and in overtaking Captain Meigs they seized the heads of all their horsps, and pointing pistols to their heads, all three surrendered.

K?"Tlje Montreal Gazette of Saturday says:? "We understand that it has been determined to call Parliament together at as early a day as possible after the New Year, to consider the scheme of Confederation and other important matters among which, doubtless the question of the defences of the country will occupy a prominent place.

It has the decency, moreover, to express its shame and regiet that such is the case. ??"At least one gleam of satisfaction may ba discovered by ull true Democrats among the elections results, viz: The political annihila tion of Fernand-j Wood in the Ninth New York Congressional District, where he lies burled under a majority too deep, we trust, ever to permit his resurrection.?Boston Post, Dem.
