--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
The object of the meeting was explained by Wm. P. Burwell
, 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
, who, we learn, is authorized to recruit a company for home service.
We hope the meeting on Tuesday night will be largely attended.
