Maryland. --We have just conversed with a gentleman from Aquasco District, Prince George's county, Maryland, and we are informed that quite a serious disturbance took place there on the day of election of a member of Congress. Mr. Calvert, it will be remembered, was the Union candidate, and Mr. Harris the candidate of the Southern States-rights party. A large number of men went down from Washington, and, at an early hour, took possession of the ballot box. Mr. Jarbos, of the old fields, near Upper Marlborough, seeing a man whom he knew to be a Washington soldier place a pistol at the head of a man who had a Harris ticket in his hand, walked over and killed the miscreant on the spot. In less than ten minutes a company of soldiers, one hundred strong, marched in, and placing a halter round Jarboe's neck, conducted him to Washington. This is the way in which Abe intends to crush out Secession in the South.
