From the Eastern Shore.

--A correspondent of the Baltimore American furnishes that paper with an account of a discussion at Arcomac Court-House. Va., on the 30th ult., between Joseph Segar and Dr. Arthur Watson. Segar "denounced unsparingly the doctrine of following his state, right or wrong," and "vindicated" his vote for the "indemnity act" on the ground that "the times require extreme and energetic measures." Dr. Watson announced his brother, Dr. Gillet Watson, as a competitor for the Congressional honors coveted by Segar, and addressed the crowd presumed to have been present. By the way, it is a little singular that the American's correspondent makes no allusion to the size of the meeting. Dr. W. "proceeded to attack Mr. Segar's vote on the conscription and indemnity bills, denouncing both measures, and particularly that portion of the indemnity act which indemnifies the President."
