The object of the meeting, however, was accomplished, in the nomination of the following ticket for the State Convention: George W. Randolph, John O. Steger, and Judge John Robertson. The meeting adjourned at a late hour, and we are unable to give a full report of the proceedings in this issue.

with Patrick Henry's "Beef! Beef!!" I see that you have had a most uproarious meeting in the African Church, in your city, to nominate to delegates to your Convention. Certainly it was a disgraceful scene for even the "Five Points," much less for Richmond, and that, too, in a house for divine worship. I wonder that such a house — the house of God--should be allowed by its authorities thus to be desecrated. I have no acquaintance with two of the gentlemen, (Messrs. Randolph and Steger,) but suppose the latter gentleman the son of Maj. Sager, late of Amelia; if so, he has the right blood. Judge Robinson I do know, and "he will do (in Southern parlance) to tie to." I did not see the Judge whilst here, or I should have made myself known to him. He introduced me to the great Clay the first time I ever saw him, in Washington, in 1839. Our batteries go on. No relaxing of effort at all.
