Large meeting of sympathy for the death of Zollicoffer.

New Orleans, Jan. 25.
--A large meeting was held at the St. Charles Hotel last night for the purpose of expressing regret at the death of the distinguished statesman and soldier, Gen. Zollicoffer.

Colonel Andrew Erwin was called to the Chair, and Mr. H. L. Goodrich requested to act as Secretary.

On motion, the Chairman appointed the following committee to draft resolutions:

Col. J. G. Pickett, Maj. Gen. Lovell, Brig. Gen. Huggles, Commodore Holline, W. A. Johnson, A. L. Davis, W. J. Berry, Alex. Fall, D. M. Kildreth, M. Hilcher, and J. C. Goodrich, which reported the following resolutions:

Resolved, That we have received the intelligence of the death of Gen. Felix K. Zollicoffer with feelings of the profoundest sorrow, and lament his untimely end as an irreparable loss to the cause for which he heroically gave his life. In private life, or in discharging public duties, we always found him an incorruptible patriot. Cool and collected amidst troubles, he was unfaltering in the execution of his purposes. No man, since Gen Andrew Jackson, enjoyed so completely the confidence and undivided esteam of the people of Tennessee.

Resolved, That we mourn his death as a great public loss, which is only relieved by the recollection that he fell fighting bravely at the head of his column, against the invaders of his country.
