Working men's meeting.

The working men of Richmond held a meeting at the City Hall last night, and adopted resolutions in favor of a perpetuation of the American Union, and recommending the adoption of the Crittenden Compromise as a suitable basis of adjustment; but if, after ‘"every effort shall be made and exhausted,"’ the South fails to obtain her rights in the Union, they will make "common cause" with the Southern States. These resolutions were reported by a minority of the committee, the majority report, (which expressed sentiments somewhat similar,) having been laid on the table.
