One ef the greatest needs of the Demo- esatie party, just now, is an able and thodhx press, at the great political and " jyiqijqircia? centres of the country.

They ifoel much obliged to the Republicans for (heir good offices and kind intentions ; but with that aclf-reliance which has hitherto marked their course, they propose to man age their own affairs in their own wsy. By dint of diligent search, and a thorough Interchange of sentiment and opinion in the convention, they hope to find a suita ble candidate among the distinguished •f their own party, and to put him upon a ■olid platform, wherein is neither chase work nor mosaic. men K, K.—Considerable excitement was crea 'tedin this town this utorniiiir over the Ku-Klux .Klaa. 'Last night long slips of paper were post ed up all over town, with a sentence printed on each. Some had "Ku-Klux-Klan," others, "Be ware —I ou are watched," " The Avenger is on ddp Path," 4c.

Almost every Maryland paper we oppn, from the coun ties bordering the Cheaapcaka. brings us accounts of the attest of parties for viola ting the provision's of the oyster law, which we think are eminently wise and proper. Qygtert art mueh scarcer than they were, sdh»5 jyears agtj', in the Chesapeake and its tributaries, and the object of the law of ladt session is.to protect the oysters from molestation during the breeding season, when they are really unfit for use. If it be proper to protect game from destruc tion during the season of increase, it is much more important to protect the oys- ters, on account of the Vast number of persons heretofore engaged in catching them all the year round. Besides, as the catching of oysters is now unlawful, from the Inst of April to the first of September, it giyes the farmers along the water cour- ses an opportunity to employ the oyster- men (mostly colored men) in the produc- tion of their crops. Hundreds, if not thousands, of laborers in Maryland, have abandoned the farms and taken to their panoes, and subsist by catching oysters. Two days labor in the week will supply their needs, of corn meal, bacon and whis key, and the'balance of their time is too frequently spent in idleness nnd drunken The labor thqs withdrawn from uesa. the pursuits of agriculture, since the ne groes were set free, is immense, and tho farmers along the, rivers nnd bay sjidrcs, find it difficult to supply tlio deficiency. This law will be beneficial, not only in protecting the oysters from destruction, but in supplying the formels, during the Summer months, with additional labor. Land in Sassafras Neck, Cecil county, Md. appears to be selling at a rather low figure, judging from several sales recontly reported in that neighborhood. It Is ac knowledged to be the finest district of Ce cil, a Valuable frhit-growing region, with abundant water transportation, and venicnfly located with respect to tho pro jected rail roads ; and yet, land sold there last week, at the moderate price of $22, to $60 por acre. The Sncthcn estate, 187 acres, was sold to W. R. Freeman, for $81,50 per acre. Five farms of the estate of tlm late Gov. Veazcy, were sold as fol lows; The Mansion llouso farm, 200) acres, to Jams W.

Resolved, That we desire to express in fitting terms our respect for the memory of the late James Buchanan, of Pennsylva nia ; whose long and useful life, has in the wisdom of Almighty God, been brought to a peaceful and honorable end. Resolved, That during his long and la borious career, whether in his private pro fession as a Lawyer, or as a public serv ant; as Representative in Congress; a Senator of tho Uuited States; as United States Minister to tho Courts of Russia and Great Britain ; or Ns President of the Uni ted States ; he has exhibited capacities of the highest order, combined with a person al character free from stain or reproach ;— uuimpeachcd and unimpeachable. Rcs tlved, That as a Constitutional Law yer Mr. Buchanan stood in the foremost rank of the Statesmen of his own time ; the compeer of Clay, Calhoun, and Web ster; and ever evinced his conscientious adherence to the letter and spirit of the Federal Constitution—never suffering the ends of party to sway his action or judge ment in violation of its provisions. Resolved, That his honest name ; the dignity and purity of his life ; his states manlike abilities, and great public services ; will he cherished by his fcllow-couutrymen long after tho slanders of petty partizan malignity shall be forgotten. Resolved, That we commend his life and public services to the close study nnd imi tation of our own and succeeding genera tions, as a true patriot, an able statesman, and sincere Christian.

Tlic City is quiet at present, and the pub mind only occupied by events transpir ing in the capital and throughout the coun try generally, without sufficient of inter esting local items to fix the attention at home. lie Now that we have had a few days of real summer weather, persons are begin iug to realize the necessity of some rural .retreat^ near enough to the City to make it convenient of access, and yet far enough S5S"«Â ÏÂÏ whose business requires their presonce in town during business hours, but whose love of nature and fondness for the beau ties of the oountry induce them to seek pastoral scenes, hnra already began to look around for some desirable locality to spend the summer season. Numerous places arc offered, suited to all tastes and conditions, and situated at greater or less distances and to bo reached by the different lines of horse-cars, and rail-roads running out of tlie city. For those of more moderate means, or who cling to the dusty streets from preference, satisfied with an occasion al jnunl into the country and a desultory snuff of fresh air, there are offered the ad ventages of pic-nies to the woods and gardens of the vicinity. For the nautical ly disposed we find numerous excursions on the Patapsco or the broad waters of the Chesapeako. I must own a prefer ence for the latter. There is something in the broad expanse of water, and the feeling of the bounding steamer that in spires one with a sense of freedom and un restraint. Standing on the deep, gazing back at the fast receding roofs, spires, and wharves of the City, and then looking forward to the dancing waves glittering and shining in the sunlight, it makes one realize that life is not all one struggle, and tnrmoil, and grasping after wealtli and po sition, hut that it has it's pleasures and beauties. Thus thinking, one can toss off all cares and troubles, and giving ourselves up to tho enjoyment of the hour return with renewed energy to the battle of the morrow. One of the pleasantest places of resort is the White Bock retreat, situated on the shore about an hour's ride in the Steam boat from this city. The grounds have been fitted up to accommodate pleasure parties ; and independent of a cool and de lightful shady retreat, the finest fishing is offered, together with boating nnd sailing. The steamers run from Light St. wharf to White Knelt almost every hour of the day. It is true, the Mercantile portion of the community are not very busy, hut a cer tain portion of our citizens are quite tively engaged (and when arc they not?) viz : the politicians. A meeting was held last night, nt the rooms of the Democratic Association ; and Governor Swann, being introduced, ad dressed the meeting in a speech of over an hour's length. lie defined his position, as utterly repudiating the doctrine of ten States being ont of the Union ; uncom promising opposition to negro suffrage; and a firm adherence to the principles of the Democratic party. In speaking of the effort of the Radicals to reconstruct the State of Maryland through the instrumen tality of Congress, the Governor referred to Creswell, saying he (Creswell) was en deavoring to stand in the robes of the late II. Winter Davis, which very much remindod him of a " mere hag of bones in a giants robe. very complimentary to Grant, ns a Gen eral, and there are many who agree with him in opinion, and think thBt the an cient French term, "le boucher," applied to their great warriors would he equally applicable in this case. The attack of Butler iq the House of Represenatives on Monday, on the private Secretary of the President, and Mossrs. Morrick and Rrcnt, the Counsel ôf Mr. Woolley, calling them "conspirators," has brought out the following card, which appeared in tho morning papers of this city. ,-ie The Governor was not Baltimore, June 0th, 1868. I observe in the morning pnpers of this city that General 11. F. Butler, in the House of Rep yesterday, spoke of Messrs. Brent apd Merrick, the counsel of Mr. Woolley as lt con svlrators ." I do not know that General Butler understands that such a term implies criminal condui t, and that nothing but his constitutional exemption could secure him from just account ability for so false a chnrgc. Mr. Woolley was a prisoner charged with con tempt at the instance of General Bntler. The House, had in justice , allowed him the benefit of counsel in his hour of adversity. As one of his counsel I was on the floor for a few minutes by the invitation of a menber, but lmd been in the gallery for some titno before, and when the words were 8|iokcn. It was my duty to explain to members the memorial of my client then before the House. This was thfc extent of my imputed offense. To what a condition must the heart ofthat man be degraded who could perceive in the position of counsel just ground to insult those who were de fenseless? No one but a being deficient in mag nanimity, honor and true courage, would thus wantonly traduce gentlemen engaged in the dis charge of a high professional duty. I make this statement merely that the facts may be known, not from any apprehension that my character e ults from a man who freuen t* fives. be injured by a position which he did not disgrace, nnd whose at this moment the foulest blot rer held his name country's history. If I needed any this calumny, it would be found in the prompt and manly declaration of Speaker Colfax that the Counsel should not be called conspirators, by which he showed his appreciation of justice. » J.

THE FUTURE. Can men think of the future? Of a coming prosperous day? Of National wealth, and happiness? While fanatics hold the sway? Whilst party rules the country, And the Southern States are dumb, Can iuen, I say, look forward To the crisis which must come? Can men, but for a moment, think This " lane will have no turn?" That Southern blood will not resent, Nor Southern anger burn ? That serfs can rule, with lustful hand, The sons of those who fought, And hel]»cd to gain the liberties, From England dearly bought? Is there no hope? No glimpse of light? To lead our rulers on ? Has God forsaken this bright land, And sent His curses down? No ! no ! ! He surely sees ns yet, Our hope is from His hand He will not suffer slaves to rule O'er white men's homes and land. Bohemia Mills, .Tune, 18C8. Rosalkini:. A flu 1 ru In WflMliIngtoii. Tho "Five State" bill, as it is cullud, for admitting the Southern States, came up in the Senate on Monday. j\lr. Vick ers was the first speaker, making his mai den speech since his entry into the Senate. He spoke about two hours, and was lis tened to with much attention by the Sena tors. His argument was plaiu but solid and convincing, showing up the absurdity of the new-fangled radical doctrine of con gressional control over the suffrage in the States. Mr Bowon, frnu lulontly elected Mayor, occupies tlic Mayor's office, and two separ ate organizations claim to be. the Council of the city, one Démocratie, the other Re publican. A police force is kept about the City Hall day and night to prevent vio lence. Tho struggle, however, is an une qual one, and the Radicals must ultimately hold the power. The white citizens of Washington arc not a match for the car pet-baggers, baoked by Congress and tlic negroes. r. C. W. Wooloy has answered, by a written statement, tho questions of the managers, and accounted for his twenty thousand dollars. His presonce in Wash ington related not to the impeachment, but to the whiskey tax. A hill was reported on Tuesday for the division of Texas into three States, design ed to guard the Senate against Conser vative changes iu tlic Northern States by bringing in additional Kudieal representa tives of the negro element at tho South. The Chinese embassy was presented to the Uouso on Tuesday. A similar recep tion will probably take place in the Senate. Rumors of Cabinet changes are rovivov, hut they do not soetn to be worthy of credit. Manager Butler, on Monday, spoke of Woolcy's cot noil, R. J. Brent, and R. T. Merrick, as "conspirators." Mr. Rrcnt publishes a card in tlic Baltimore Gazette, of Wednesday, in which lie says of Bntler : "I do not know that Gen.
