Chapman arose and read a telegraphic dispatch, announcing that Alabama had seceded from the Union, which was received with tremendous cheers.

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.
