At the Capitol.

The exercises at the Capitol were held in the House of Representatives, and commenced promptly at 8 o'clock. President Hamilton Douglas called the society to order, and after prayer by the chaplain, the Rev. Mr. Funsten, Captain McCabe was introduced. His address was upon the ‘Life of Lee’ and ‘The Defence of Petersburg.’ The hall was crowded with an enthusiastic audience, which was in full sympathy with the theme of the speaker.
