M., to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Berrett's resignation, sent in since his release from Fort Lafayette, comes up for consideration.

General Carrington took occasion to vindicate himself against certain aspersions on his character in the beginning of the rebellion, and triumphantly referred to the President, Lieutenant-General Scott, and other officers, for the propriety and justice of his course. At this stage of the proceedings, a letter was read from Mayor Wallach, excusing himself from participating in a political demonstration while holding his present position; also, one from Hon. H. Stockbridge, of Baltimore, regretting his inability to be present, as he wished to urge on all Marylanders the importance of attending the elections in that State on the 12th of October next, as that is the day which will decide whether Maryland shall be consecrated to free labor and free speech, free schools and free men.
