ead in the race, and unless other competitors pick up a great deal in the course of the next few months, it will distance them all.—The Dispatch.) Roster of Churchville Cavalry.

Union demonstration at Metropolitan Hall. A small hand-bill was circulated late yesterday evening, notifying the public of a meeting of the Union and Conservative men of Richmond, at 7 1/2 o'clock, at Metropolitan Hall. Addresses were promised from Messrs.Geo. W. Summers, John B. Baldwin, Timothy Rives, John M. Botts, and Geo. W. Brent.--Though no publication was made in the newspapers, the Hall was crowded, at the hour named, with a large and enthusiastic assemblage of respectable and staid citizens. The meeting was called to order by John H. Gilmer, Esq., who introduced to the meeting Maj. Jubal A. Early, Delegate to the Convention from Franklin county, who delivered a spirited and able address, replate with sentiments of devotion to "the Union, the Constitution and the laws," and opposition to secession and disunion. He was followed by Waitman P. Willey, Esq., of Montagalla county, George W. Berne, Esq., of Alexandria, and Marmaduke Johnson, Esq., of Richmond, all of w

Mr. Baldwin went on to show that the slave was not taxed as man for while their own white heads were taxed per capita. Mr. Baldwin said he could not be expected to be as well posted as tht learned the A, B, C, of the subject. [Laughter.] Mr. Baldwin supposed he would; and he apprehended that such a pupil the kind he would be fitted to teach. [Laughter.] Mr. Baldwin continued to argue upon the propositions, which, he beli in process of splendid development. In conclusion, Mr. Baldwin apologized for having so long detained the Committee in n to pay his respects to Messrs. Moore, of Rockbridge, and Baldwin, of Augusta, of whom he had little hope, and made humorousurnment, a beautiful floral wreath was presented to Col. John B. Baldwin, of Augusta, by Mr. Critcher, of Westmoreland, on b
Scenes at the Institute. --The "Union" ladies on Saturday inaugurated a system at the Convention which has heretofore been confined to theatrical circles, in the bestowal of a floral wreath upon Col. Baldwin, of Augusta, who had just closed his argument against secession. Mr. Critcher, of Westmoreland, who made the presentation speech, read a poetical tribute from the ladies, the point of which was that woman deems Union right, and that it is man's duty to support her. While Col. Baldwin Col. Baldwin was making an eloquent reply, somebody in the gallery trod on a dog's appendage, and the fierce "bow wow — ki yi," for a time completely eclipsed the oratorical peroration to the stripes and stars. Another incident on Saturday transpired while Mr. Bruce, of Halifax, was making an argument in favor of secession. A troop of horsemen from Chesterfield passed by the building, the trumpeter blowing "Yankee Doodle" with all his might and main, which created some merriment on the Union side, but
The Convention. A resolution was adopted on Saturday to meet at 10 o'clock A. M.; to take a recess at 2 o'clock, and meet again at 4 o'clock P. M. Secession resolutions, adopted by the people of Dinwiddie, Greene, Spotsylvania, and Culpeper, were presented by the delegates representing those counties. Mr. Baldwin finished his speech against secession and in favor of the majority report. He was followed by Mr. Bruce, of Halifax, who will conclude to-day. Mr. Hall, of Marion, continued his remarks in favor of an ad valorem tax upon slaves.--Mr. Dormay, of Rockbridge, introduced a resolution, which was laid on the table, recommending a license tax on Northern productions, in retaliation for the Personal Liberty bills in vogue in the Northern States.
the Constitution. Mr. Goode argued at some length upon the general subjects advanced from the Union side of the Convention, and was occasionally "set right" by Mr. Baldwin in quoting his positions. He passed a glowing eulogium upon the course of the Virginia Senators in Congress, in regard to whom a resolution of censure had beends "in regard to." This was accepted by Mr. Scott. The roll was then called, and the vote resulted as follows: Yeas.--Messrs Janney, (President,) Aston, Baldwin, Baylor, Berlin, Boggess, Brown, Burdett, Burley, Campbell, Carter, Robt. Y.

Grand political demonstration. --The Conservatives — those who have an abiding faith in "the Union, the Constitution, and the enforcement of the laws"--propose to have a grand demonstration at the African Church to-night. The friends of cohesion will be addressed by John B. Baldwin, Esq., of Augusta; Jas. B. Dorman, Esq., of Rockbridge; Tim Rives, Esq., of Prince George, and a number of other distinguished gentlemen.--The meeting will, no doubt, have a tendency to cement anew those bonds of unity which, it may be rightly conjectured, from recent events, want all the glueing together they will be likely to obtain here or elsewhere.
t night was very largely attended. The American flag was displayed on the platform, and a considerable amount of enthusiasm was displayed by the assembled throng. The first speaker was James B. Dorman, Esq., of Rockbridge, and the second Col. John B. Baldwin, of Augusta, members of the Convention.--They urged the claims of the Union upon their hearers with ability and force. A resolution was offered by John H. Gilmer, Esq., requesting Messrs. Macfarland and Johnson not to heed any paper popted. Marmaduke Johnson, Esq., was then called out, and delivered a brief address. The meeting, in point of numbers and enthusiasm, may be considered a success. The equilibrium of the Union men was once slightly interrupted by the appearance of a flag of the Southern Confederacy at the front entrance; but Mr. Baldwin, who was speaking at the time, assured them that there was no cause for apprehension; in response to which a stentorian voice shouted that it was "torn into ribbons."
