Maryland Political Affairs.

--Parties are man haling their forces for the ensuing Congressional election in Maryland. The Union men have already nominated their candidates in five or six districts, and in the remaining one (the 6th) the nominating Convention were to assemble at Bradensburg on Saturday last. The Southern-Rights men of the same district will hold their Convention at Upper Mariboro' on Wednesday next. A portion of the delegates, those from Calvert, Anne Arundel, and Howard counties, met there last Wednesday, and organized by calling James D. Cook, of Howard, to the chair, and appointing Dr. S. W. Hammond, of Anne Arundel, secretary. Ascertaining that they had misapprehended the time of meeting, they adjourned over until Wednesday next. The Southern-Rights Convention of the First Congressional District assembled at Cambridge on Tuesday, and was called to order by Hon. James F. Dashiell, of Somerset. Dr. Washington A Smith, of Dorchester, was chosen President, and J. W. Bryant, of Caroline, and E. N. Todd, of Somerset, secretaries.
