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.
