present in large numgers. The ceremonies of the day possessed peculiar interest because the memory of the Petersburg soldiers who fell in battle in the War of 1861-65 was to be especially commemorated. The program of exercises was simple, but very beautiful. The ladies of the Memorial Association met in the Mechanics' Hall at, which has been theirs for so many years, of preserving the memory of the soldiers who wore the gray and who gave their lives during the momentous conflict of 1861-65.
