DxidrMfC* special Dispatch to the Baltimore *&«.] \Vix< hj>tli:, Va., Sept. 2;'.—Mr. Kd mund 1*. Dandridge, a prominent lawyer of this city, was found dead in his office by the janitor of the building at an early hour this morning. He was lying on his face near a ' jfa. Physicians are of opinion that death resulted fro! apoplexy. Mr. Dandridge Wits the senio. member of the law firm of Dandridge it Pendleton, and was one of the bright* -t lawyers and most popular gentle men in this section of Virginia. For the past fifteen years he has been orosecuting • attorney f*»r Frederick county,and a few years ago represented the county with great credit in the 1 lou-e <>f 1 >ch gates. He wa- a tlueu t, graceful speaker, and a favorite democratic orator. Mr. Dandridge married a daughter of the late Hon.Cha*. H. Pitts, of Baltimore, and his wife died while on a visit to Balti more county, about two months ago. De ceased was a son of Mr. A. S. Dandridge, of " The Bower," Jefferson county, W.

Mr. Dandridge was also resident counsel for the Bait*more and Ohio Railroad. The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore says: Speaker Carlisle, who ha.- t ell campaigning in West Virginia for some time, spent to-day in this city. He returns to West Virginia, and w ill continue -pcakiug until Saturday night next. He may, however, run over into Ohio on two d.iv-> of the week. Mr. Carlisle says he is confident enough ot West \ irginia going democratic, as are all other democrats, but they do not intend that their majority shall run down any. He says on the other hand, they propose to run the figures up, and that nothing the republicans can ao win acieui their purpose. Ho suvo there are contests of some iniere.-t in two of the congressional districts, but thut all the democratic can* di late* for Congress are sate, some of them being assured greatly increased majorities. The Baltimore .V<« says: There has pro bably never been a more imposing demon stration at the funeral of a private citizen of Baltimore than the spontaneous tribute ot respect which was paid to the late John \V. Garrett at Ureenmount Cemetery on Sun day. There was no display or parade, no organized attempt to testify the public ap preciation of hi- worth as an imposing fig ure in the commercial world. There was neither pomp nor circumstance at his burial, but thousands flocked to his grave through dust and heat, to pay the tribute of their presence to the man whom they had learned through long years to honor. It goes without saying that the professions of interest in the colored man anil brother made bv the republicans arc the merest hypo critical pretences. It was only a few days ago in this town that t reo white republicans, em ployed along with uthcr white men and one colored man, demanded the discharge of the colored workman, -ayiug that unless he was dismissed they would quit work. The white d. tn ratic employer declined to accede to their demand retained the honest and worthy col ored employee and let the republican hypocrites go. The colored voter ought to consider thi-. It only needs for a nun to put pencil to paper now to see for himself that t leveland s election is a dead sure thing, lie has 201 elec toral vote- to get. Of these the solid South guarantees him led. Sew ^ ork .- 30 votes are just as certain, and Indiana, with her 1.1 ballots, i-not going back on Thomas A.

Indi cation'. however, point to some gains in the west—Michigan, with <1 votes, looming up proudly and California.’.Colorado ami Wiscon sin promising to swell the column. The great Kentuckian who presides over the lioU'C of Representatives, in hi' speech at tlratton took occasion to say that Hon. Win. L. Wilson " made more of a reputation for him self than any voting man in Congress." High en. tmiiiui from one competent to speak, ami enough to stimulate the voters of the 2nd dis trii t to return him to Congress handsomely en dorsed.

Mrs. Fllzahcth Brown, wife of Mr. John I*. Brown, died at her residence in this town on Wednesday, Jlth. Many month* she was an invalid, and during her intense sufferings the meek and gentle Christian spirit that ever per vaded her quiet home-lift was illustrated bv an entire absence of murmuring or complaint. About this time the gentleman from Maine is insinuating his magnetic person among the rural “faithful" in Ohio—dropping sugared phrases iisr* and there uml doing his level beet to obliterate every ieu,l> ‘ u • -f the Mulligan letters. Hon. Juo. G. Carlisle failed to meet the ap pointment made for him at Martinsburg: but Hon. Wm. L. Wilson eloquently filled his own pla c and that of the great Kentuckian.
