After being in Washington
for some time, and witnessing the boldness of the Black Republican

is a growing village, about 20 miles east of Washington
Hence, I expected that a large portion of the people, at least, would have their sympathies with the General Government
; but all side with the South
, and Gov. Hicks
' letter to the Commissioner
does not give general satisfaction, as the people, not only here, but all over the State
, desire a call for the assembling at once of the Legislature.
Meetings are being held throughout the State
, all passing resolutions asking the Governor
to convene the Legislature.
There is no news of interest now, but when anything of interest to the public transpires, you may expect to hear from me again. J.W.
