The Death of Wyatt Cardwell, Esq.,formerly well known in political circles as a member of the General Assembly from Charlotte county, and who, for the past two years, has been connected with the management of the Columbian Hotel, in this city, was announced yesterday, on which day his remains were taken to their last resting place from the Monumental Church.

At 12 o'clock the crowd met at the Masonic Hall, where eloquent and soul-inspiring addresses were delivered by John C. Hawlett, Jr., and Isaac R. Watkins, both of the speakers acquitting themselves handsomely. After paying a deserving compliment to our patriotic ladies--God bless them — who made and presented the Southern Confederated Flag, they proved how much more it was to the interest of Virginia to be with the South than remain the tail of a Northern Confederacy.--While speaking was going on the telegraph brought us the sa
