General Williams C. Wickham, of Virginia, is at Willard's. A meeting was held Monday night to take steps to defeat the negro suffrage bill. Firey addresses — reading very much like some we have seen before somewhere --were delivered by Hon. T. B. Florence and others. A stranger, supposed to be a Mr. Atwell, from Westmoreland county, Virginia, died in Baltimore on Saturday last, under the influence of a powerful opiate. A decided majority of the clergy of this State gave all their influence to the cause of secession, and, as the war progressed, were often the most successful recruiting agents for the Confederate army.--Missouri Democrat.
