We have received a copy of the Poem and Address delivered on the first annual meeting of the society of the "Old Boys of Hampton Academy, July, 1860." The poem by W. Gordon McCabe is one of the happiest efforts of his brilliant genius. The subject of the Address is "Social Development in Virginia," and it is treated with admirable ability, scholarship and eloquence, by the author, James Barron Hope, Esq.
