c. Isle of Wight Co., Va., Nov. 3d, 1860. Notwithstanding the extreme inclemency of the weather, there was a large attendance of the sovereigns at the great Breckinridge mass meeting at the Court-House, on the 30th ult. Unfortunately, however, the distinguished speakers who had been announced were deterred by adverse providence from being present--ex-Gov. Wise by an accident on the railroad, and Mr. Leake, we learn, by illness in his family. The only address on the occasion was by Dr. Rives, of Surry. The Eastern Virginia "Christian" Conference is now in session in the adjoining county of Nansemond. This Conference is composed of churches embraced in the limits of this Congressional district, and represents about 2,500 communicants. Though but little known in many sections, this denomination is one of the most numerous in this and adjoining counties, and has increased rapidly within a few years past. The organ of the Southern branch of the denomination is published at
Music in the Field. --The Bell and Everett men yesterday employed Smith's Band to play patriotic airs through the streets for the purpose of inspiring the voters. On the night previous the Breckinridge party had the same Band at their headquarters, and fine music was played at intervals, closing with the Star Spangled Banner. The Douglas party had the Armory Band at the African Church, where Mr. Tim Rives made a speech to an immense crowd. Music, on occasions of this kind, though something new here, is a good idea. It softens asperities. Makes everybody jubilant. Prevents fights, and so on.
