for the nomination of candidates to fill the
various offices in which vacancies will occur
this year, and 11160 to make a legislative ticket,
assembled in that city on Tuesday evening. It
is the expressed and pub/tithed opinion of the .
people and press of that city, that it was the
most disorderly political body that ' ever as
sembled within its limits, alike a disgrace to
the subjects on which it Wag convened to de
liberate, and the high cause its members pro
fess to have espoused. The following is a list of
it nominations :
State Senator—C. M. Donovan.
City Commissioner John Johnson, Eigh
City Treasurer—Dr, Jas, McClintock, Ninth
Clerk of the Orphans' Court—Albert Law

In the County Convention, which was also in
session yesterday, for the nomination of. candi
dates for Sheriff and Register of Wills, there
was the utmost confusion, which was only par
tially. allayed by the threat of the presiding
officer to leave the chair unless order was re
stored. The mails or the telegraph brought us
no intelligence up to our going to press last
evening, of the result of the nominations by
this convention. Among the resolutions passed
by this convention, they declare that the vic
tories of 1812 were gained under a Democratic
administration—that nullification was crushed
under the same influence—that the war with
tlexipo was made triumphant by the same
power—but the author of the same resolutions
forgot to state that the present rebellion, in all
its phases and for all its purposes was conceived
under, concocted in and brought forward also
by a Democratic administration.
When we hear the result of this convention,
we will apprise our readers.

THE CHARGES AGAINST MAJOR BRLORR.
REPORT OF GENERAL DIX
The Rumored Fight Near Washington
NOTHING SELLABLE RECEIVED AT HEAD
WasaufaTorr, Aug. 28
Serious charges having been presented to the
Wari Department Alleging that' Major James
Belger, assistant Quartermaster, at the impor
depot at Baltimore, was abusing his charge
by making his purchases from, and employing
as snbordinate agents, persons inimical to the
Government. The metier' was referred to
Major General Dix for investigation. That
officer whose high toned charatter and
rigid loyalty made him of all others the
proper one to investigate so 'serious a charge,
has submitted his report calling before hint
some of the most prominent citizens of Balti
more who were in' frequent intercourse with
Major Belger and obtaining from theni ' state =`
meats in writing of what they knew es to hie
general course in making his purchases and'giv
ir* employments. The General comes to the con
clusion that the charges 'airainst, liajor-Belger
are so far as they allege an intentional
bestowment of public patronage on disloyal
men, utterly groundless. It could scarcely have
been avoided, being a stranger in Baltimore, I
that, some of his purchases shOuld have been
from disloyal men ; but it is shown most con
clusively that his efforts have been to throw the
public money entrusted to him into the right
channels, and that, wherever he had found',
himself deceived as to the Union .proclivities of
his agents, even down to carters and tirsymen7
he has applied the corrective remedy by dis
missing them from - service. Gen, Dix; in (ion
eluding his report, says : 141 ink him (Major
Belger) an efficient, faithful, eg a spi en o 9 ns pub

The city was rife last night as well as this
morning of a fight on the other side of the
Potomac, and even in usually well informed
quarters there is conflicting information
on the subject. It is certain that General
hi'Clellan with his customary activity and
watchfulness returned thence at I o'clock
hist night but from his conversation with mili
tary friends there was nothing of an important
or serious character. is probable, however,
as mentioned by a gentleman of respectability,
that a rebel force of three companies of cavalry
and about the same number of infantry vrith
two field pieces have been hovering in the vi
cinity, of Bull's Cross road maneuvering with
the view to draw out adetachment of our troops
into an ambuscade. As to several soldiers hav
ing been killed on each aide in a skirmish, it
may be only an imaginary incident to adorn a
reported bat le. Panic making seems to be a
favorite avocation, and the most preposterous
reports are readily believed and circulated.
