Home defence.

--A meeting of citizens was held at the City Hall on Saturday night to make arrangements for the organization of a battalion to serve in the batteries near home, in accordance with a notice published in the papers of that day. Col. Wyndham Robertson presided. The object of the meeting was explained by Wm. P. Burwell, Esq., and a committee was appointed to propose a plan for future action, and report to an adjourned meeting on Tuesday night. A satisfactory account of the state of feeling on the South side of the river was given by Col. Burfoot, of Manchester. An appeal was made to the citizens by A. A. Hughes, Esq., who, we learn, is authorized to recruit a company for home service. We hope the meeting on Tuesday night will be largely attended.
