Maryland Gazette, Oct 6: GLORIOUS TRIUMPH - It is with the liveliest emotions we announce to our distant readers the complete regeneration of this County. After having slumbered for fourteen years in the arms of Democracy, the citizens of Anne Arundel county have awakened; they have become sensible of their wanderings; they have returned to the right path; they have embraced the true faith; they have broken down their idols; they have renounced their idolatry. It is the strongest evidence that the good people of the county have only to be convinced to ensure the prevalence of correct opinion. The change has been radical, we confidently trust it will be permanent. The Election has resulted in the choice John C Herbert, esq. for Congresss, and Brice J Worthington, Col Thomas Hood, Dr Richard Hopkings and Thomas B Dorsey, for the Assembly - the four first named true disciples of the Washington school.
