Music in the Field. --The Bell and Everett men yesterday employed Smith's Band to play patriotic airs through the streets for the purpose of inspiring the voters. On the night previous the Breckinridge party had the same Band at their headquarters, and fine music was played at intervals, closing with the Star Spangled Banner. The Douglas party had the Armory Band at the African Church, where Mr. Tim Rives made a speech to an immense crowd. Music, on occasions of this kind, though something new here, is a good idea. It softens asperities. Makes everybody jubilant. Prevents fights, and so on.

About Hoyt's one Dollar Store.a Tete-a-tete. "Good gracious me," said Mrs. Jones, While pinning on her collar, "I'm going down to Hoyt's store, Where all things are a 'Dollar.' Oh, he has 'sets' of various hues, And I am 'set' to buy them They are worth ten times what I shall pay, And I'm resolved to try them. "There's Mrs. Smith across the way, Embraced her dear one morning. Then bought a 'Bracelet,' which, to her, Was quite indeed adorning; And in the fashion I must be, So, likewise, I shall follow, And 'brace' my courage up to buy A 'Bracelet' for a Dollar. "And you, my love, who wear your 'chains,' I mean the 'chains' of Hymen, Can buy 'gold ones' good as the best, If you will only try them, All for one Dollar. Everything Is going off like lightning. No wonder that his store is thronged With faces that are brightening. "At number two Hundred and Thirty-nine, You must, my dear, be going; For day by day the place is filled With crowds to overflowing; And though 'pret

Local matters. The Procession and Illumination To-night. The above affair promises to be one of the grandest demonstrations of the age, so far as Richmond is concerned. As previously said, the procession will be formed in front of the City Hall at 8 ½ o'clock, and, headed by Smith's First Regiment Band, will move up Broad to 1st street, cross to Franklin, down Frankie to 5th street, cross to Main street, down Main to 17th street, and up Franklin to the Exchange Hotel, where numerous speakers are expected to address the crowd. The following note in relation to the demonstration, under date of yesterday, has been received by the editors of the Dispatch: "Gentlemen: I understand that it is expected that all those who sympathize with the secession demonstration, to take place to-morrow night, will Illuminate their dwellings. As it will be naturally inferred that those who do not do so are enemies to the cause, and as such inference would do great injustice to many warm

Military movements. --Three companies of Georgia troops passed through this place yesterday en route for Virginia. Two of them were from Macon, viz, the Floyd Rifles, commanded by Hon. Thos. Hardeman, and the Macon Volunteers, Capt. Smith. The other company was the City Light Guard, Capt. Colquit, from Columbus. These companies were composed of the very best material. They are all fine looking, soldierly fellows, and seemed to be withal gentlemen in their conduct and feelings. The spirit and enthusiasm which animated them may be imagined, when we say that a lawyer who was a private in one of them told us he had been married but one hour when he left home; and we afterwards learned that there were two or three others who were similarly situated.--God grant they may return in safety to their brides. We heard two capital speeches at the depot where the troops were assembled--one from Hon. Roger A. Pryor, who is now a Colonel in the Confederate Army, and the other from the
