The election, to-day.

--Freemen to the polls! Your country is in danger! Give aid to it once in your life-time! ‘"Who would be free himself must strike the blow."’ Then strike hard and hot for me! Vote for me, write for me, talk for me, lie for me, fight for me, die for me, if need be, and thus save your city from a fate too horrible to contemplate! People of Richmond the eyes of the world are upon you! To the rescue! To the rescue!.

The foregoing stirring appeal is written by the local, and is at the service of the candidates for the respective offices to be filled to-day. Union and Secession candidates may alike have the use of it, upon condition that they will deport themselves throughout the day with the dignity, gravity and temperateness demanded by their responsible positions before the world.
