Susan B. Anthony. Both were placarded with their respective names in large letters, with the inscription, "Squelched." In the procession were borne transparencies, on which were painted the following mottoes: "The Jerry rescuers played out;" "The rights of the South must be protected;" "Freedom of speech, but not of treason;" "Abolitionism no longer in Syracuse." At several points on the route of the procession, it halted and made the effigies of Mr. May and Miss Anthony to dance "Hall Columbia," in company to the music of the Union. Passing into Hanover square, the procession halted and an impromptu address was made by Moses E. Hart, who took occasion to denounce the abolitionists in strong terms, and expressed a hope that their race was run. The effigies were here set fire to and burned, amid groans and hisses. The procession again took up its line of march to the City Hall park, where after renewed cheers for the Union the crowd quietly dispersed, evidently well satisf
Messrs. Macfarland, Johnson, Botts, and Gilmer, Union candidates. Mr. Gilmer withdrew from the contest about mid-day. Messrs. Randolph, Johnson and Macfarland were elected. After the result was announced at the City Hall, speeches were made by the delegates elect. The State-Rights party engaged the services of Smith's First Regiment Band, and the "Marsellaise," "Old Virginny Never Tire," and other enlivening airs, were played at various prominent points. The Armory Band played "Hall Columbia, " and tunes of that character, for the Union party. The following is a statement of the result in Richmond: candidates.Jefferson Ward.Madison Ward.Monroe vote.

nmate of that institution, and she at once devoted herself to the duty of nursing the sick prisoners. She labored assiduously for their comfort, and no trouble was too great, no exposure too severe, and no endurance too painful, if they tended to relieve the sufferings of her patients. Margaret received a handsome acknowledgment of her services upon that occasion, and subsequently, when there were numerous cases of the ship-fever at the Lazaretto, she was called upon to act as nurse there, and for a time she won golden opinions. But her old appetite returned, and having become drunk and turbulent, she was discharged in disgrace. For several years she has been a constant inmate of the station-houses in the upper wards, either as a prisoner or a lodger, and there are many stories told of her exploits. When taken into the rope-walk, where she breathed her last, she commenced singing 'Hall Columbia,' and the air and the words only died upon her lips as the vital breath left them."
e Alabama Commissioners, on his left, and F. M. Gilmer, Esq, the other Commissioner, next to Gov. Floyd. While the festival was progressing, Gen. Chapman arose and read a telegraphic dispatch, announcing that Alabama had seceded from the Union, which was received with tremendous cheers. At the appropriate period, the President requested the company to come to order, for the purpose of listening to the first toast. He gave-- "The Constitution as our fathers made it."--[Music — Hall Columbia] To this sentiment, Hon. Jas. A. Seddon was invited to respond. He said he had been, as he was now, such a lover of the Union that he was anxious to improve it; and probably his first suggestion might be a Union of the South. He alluded to the past glories of the Union, which had been taken possession of by a devouring demon. The Union of our fathers was not so much a union of interest as a union of sympathy; a union upheld by honor and bravery. Alas! it was now a union of hate.
will never submit to a Northern ministry. Their fealty is to the Church South, and they will never yield their ecclesiastical loyalty, whatever the mass may do. To give you the animus of the Northern Methodist Church in Kentucky, allow me to tell your readers about one Rev. (?) Mr. Black, stationed in Newport, opposite Cincinnati. On one Sabbath he had his church ornamented with U. S. flags and brass eagles; his hymned were the "Star Spangled Banner," "The Red, White, and Blue," and " Hall Columbia," He prayed that the Union may be preserved, even though blood may come out of the wine press even unto the horses bridles by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs." In the course of his sermon, he said, "I trust our troops will rally and wipe out the disgrace of Manassas, though it cost the life of every rebel under arms. Let Davis and Beauregard be captured to meet the fate of Haman. Hang them up on Mason and Dison's line, that traitors of both sections may be warned. Let
eese in a soul-stirring speech, during which the speaker drew repeated cheers from the audience, and sat down amidst tremendous applause. He was followed by the Rev. Dr. J. C. Carver, chaplain of the seventeenth New York regiment, in an excellent and touching address, at the conclusion of which Col. J. R. Freese, in his official capacity of court judge, swore in above thirty new members. As each one moved up and took the oath of allegiance and fidelity to the United States he was greeted with a round of applause, and at the termination of the ceremony, the old building rang with cheers for some minutes, the band playing "Hall Columbia." A very noticeable and gratifying feature, connected with this meeting, was the presence of numerous ladies of high respectability. Col. Freese, with his usual tact, paid them a delicate compliment, and returned them thanks for their presence. Skirmishing goes on as usual along our lines, but nothing of importance has transpired.
on that, for the last five or six days not a gun has been fired. Above the batteries there are always one or two war steamers. Just opposite our batteries we hear that the Federals are erecting very formidable batteries, being nothing less than 13-inch mortars. Our informant says they work busily day and night, and has no doubt they have a considerable force employed. It is at this point that the celebrated Sickles's Brigade are located. The Federals seem to be intensely fond of Hall Columbia and the Star-Spangled Banner these tunes being played daily, both morning and evening, in hearing of our batteries, and, we will add, by a most excellent band, so says our informant. The Port Royal fight — the day of battle — highly interesting account — Disparity between the Contending forces, &c. The Charleston Mercury, of the 11th, contains a most interesting account of the late engagement off Port Royal. We published yesterday morning some interesting particulars, which we c<
The American question in England — Lincoln's message.the opinion of the London Times. [From the London Times. Dec. 18.] The style of the American President has fallen with the fortunes of the Republic. Instead of the jolly, rollicking periods of former days, each of which seemed to suggest at its close a stave of "Hall Columbia," we have now got a discursive and colloquial essay, ill arranged and worse exp Nor does the matter redeem the style. It is really wonderful, when we consider the present state of the American Republic, how any one placed in the position of Mr. Lincoln could have taken the trouble to produce so strange a medley, so in composite a rhapsody. There are several subjects on which we earnestly desire information, and on no one is it afforded. Above all things, we want to know what view the American Cabinet takes of the affair of the Trent, what advice it has received from its legal counselors, and with what feeling it approaches the coming controversy.
The Yankees at Washington, N. C. --We learn that the Yankees, to the number of three hundred, marched into the town of Washington, N. C. and raised their flag on the Court-House. It is said they marched through the streets playing Hall Columbia and the Star Spangled Banner on the band, and that no one came forward to extend any courtesy or dance to their music, and that after enjoying this sublime sport to their heart's content, they went off again. Possibly the name of the place kept them from indulging their plundering propensities on the "loose things laying round."--Nov. Day book:
t be saved. Will you do it? The brave soldiers who are now among you are your friends — they come to save, not to destroy. I hastily welcome them, officers and privates. You have already seen many, but there are legions more ready when needed. Those who have been deceived and delted into a feeling of hostility to the Government shall be treated as leniently as possible, unconscious, intelligent treason must be punished; and when that is done, your Government will be stronger than ever. It is Government made and sustained by the vote of the people, which is the voice of God himself. I love to hear our national airs, who have no doubt sent a thrill of joy to man heart after being subjected so long to a right of terror — Hall Columbia, Star Spangle Banner, Yankee Doodle, etc. Again I ask — what is this war for? As you not see that they are in the wrong, all must lose, while we are right and must triumph? There can be no protection for slavery but in the United Sta
