thusiasm existing made us feel proud of the place of our nativity. Among the many Virginians present, we observed John Tyler, Jr., son of Ex-President Tyler. Mr. Tyler had the pleasure of firing a gun in honor of the noble act of his State. The demonstration on last night was well worthy of the people of Montgomery. At 8 o'clock a large crowd gathered in front of the Central Bank, and in the midst of large bonfires and the display of fireworks, were entertained with speeches by Alex. B. Clitherall, Col. Finnie, of Memphis, John Tyler, Jr., Mr. Bullock, of Kentucky, Jas. Hodgson, S. Harris, D. Workman, Mr. Chilton, John Pollard, and others. The Mobile Tribune, of the 19th inst., thus describes the scene in that city, on the reception of the news: We have never seen so much excitement and so general an exhibition or joy as there was yesterday, after the reception of the news that Virginia had joined our Confederate States.

excitation went up. Friends and neighbors met each other with faces beaming with smites and radiant with joy. The bells all over town were set to ringing, and kept up a joyous din of long and loud peals. Our Superior Court was in session, but Judge Bull, on receiving the news, promptly adjourned the Court.--Soon the loud-mouthed cannon was brought out, and a salute of eight guns were fired in honor of the event — His Honor Judge Bull firing off the first one! Everybody was filled with rejoiciJudge Bull firing off the first one! Everybody was filled with rejoicing that no one tried to conceal.--Even those who lately were "indifferent" about the admission of the border States--or, perhaps, opposed to it --soon caught the uncontrollable fire of joyous delight at the event, and joined as heartily as any one in the demonstrations of enthusiasm. The greatest outbursts of enthusiasm, however, occurred at night. The streets were illumined with the lurid light of numerous rockets. The boys well night exhausted the supply of torpedoes in the city. Firew

Chorus.--Room in the wagon! Room in the wagon! In the strong Confederate wagon, For our darling and our pride! The New Orleans Picayune of the 19th instant says: The reception, yesterday, by telegraph, of the glad tidings of Virginia's determination to join the Confederate States, produced in our city the most en
