Meeting at the African Church.

In response to a call for a meeting of the working men of Richmond, to give public expression to their views in the present crisis, an immense multitude of persons assembled last night at the African Church. The proceedings were interrupted by the most boisterous yells and hisses, and the object of the meeting, whatever it might have been, was completely frustrated. A committee was appointed to wait on Mr. Botts, to invite him to address the assemblage, and that gentleman appeared; but the confusion was so great that he refused to speak. The resolutions reported by the Business Committee were raid on the table, and another series presented, but not acted on. We will publish a more detailed account of the proceedings to-morrow.
