Wilder Atkinson. Richmond, Jan. 30, 1861. To Messrs. William F. G. Garnett, Nathaniel F. Bowe, Jno. W. Atkinson, and Jno. A. Hutcheson: Gentlemen: Your letter informing me "that at a meeting, this day held, of the friends of those gentlemen who have been most prominently pr my name was unanimously agreed upon as the candidate, it has this moment been received.

From Washington. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Jan. 30, 1861. "This correspondence" went to the President's last night.

I have two friends here, gentlemen heretofore antipodes in their belief as to the ultimate direction things would take, who now
