3. The third class consisted of the border slaveholding States, with Virginia at the head. A large majority of their people, although believing in the right of peaceful secession, had resisted all the efforts of the extreme men in their midst, and were still devoted to the Union. Of this there could be no better proof than the result of the election held in Virginia, February 4, 1861, for the choice of. delegates to her State Convention, even after the cotton States had all seceded. Appleton's Annual Cyclopaedia for 1861, p. 730. This showed that a very large majority of the delegates elected were in favor of remaining in the Union. Under these circumstances, it is easy to imagine what would have been the effect on the other Southern States of sending a feeble force of United States troops to Fort Moultrie at this critical conjuncture. Had collision been the consequence, and blood been shed immediately before the meeting of Congress, the other cotton States, from their wel

ring Dixie would strike the ear, approaching, at hand, in the distance, but whenever it vibrated the sensibilities of that vast concourse it never failed to conjure up a mighty enthusiasm, which found utterance in the deafening cheers and shouts, that showed how strongly it had touched responsive chords in the hearts of sons and daughters of the South. Instantly recognized and applauded, too, were such old familiar strains as The Girl I Left Behind Me, Bonnie Blue Flag, Virginia, Dallas, Appleton, and the National Campaign, while the notes of Auld Lang Sine, heard frequently along the line of march, conjured up such a world of tender reminiscences and deep emotions as no amount of artifice could conceal in the countenances of the older members, both of the soldiery and citizens. For the rest, the music was chiefly martial in character, consisting of quick steps, well-known marches, and patrols, rendered without exception in excellent style.

editing to Mr. Garnett, Mr. Randolph's articles. In 1820 Mr. Carey published three letters on the present calamitous state of affairs, addressed to J. M. Garnett, Esq., President of the Fredericksburg Agricultural Society, strongly advocating protection for American manufactures. Of the society just named Mr. Garnett was President for twenty years and delivered to it annual addresses. He was a founder of the Virginia State Agricultural Society, and it is stated in Lippincott's and in Appleton's Biographical Dictionaries that he was one of the principal founders and the first President of the United States Agricultural Society, but the correctness of this statement I cannot verify. Besides the paper above mentioned Mr. Garnett wrote also for the Argis, the Richmond Enquirer, The National Intelligencer, and other Newspapers, and for the Southern Literary Messenger, often under the signature Oliver Old School, Ruffin's Farmer's Register, and later in life for Judge Bird's Albany

on Sycamore street—but away to the right of it, along Broadway, could be seen the few houses which existed at that time. Marshall, Dartmouth, and Thurston streets were not in existence. Looking still further toward the east across the fields to where Mt. Pleasant street and Perkins street are only a few houses could be seen; the John Runey house and the Pottery buildings on the northerly side of Cross street, about where Flint street is, the houses of Charles Williams, Horace Runey, a Mr. Appleton, and two or three others along that part of Cross street, and then no buildings till you reached the Galletly Rope Walk, the Towne residence and hot houses off Washington street, the Bailey and Guild houses on Perkins street, with possibly two or three others near by. All between Perkins and Cross streets was pasture land, and one would let down the bars near Mt. Vernon street, on Perkins, and walk unmolested to a point opposite the Runey pottery, where, letting down another set of b

d direction as to some suitable to preach and settle. On June 18th it was voted to proceed according to advice and keep a day of fasting and prayer for direction in settling a minister and to send to Revs. Mr. Coleman, Fox, Hancock, Brown and Appleton, and desire them to come and help the town in keeping it. Mr. Hancock, who was the grandfather of the revolutionary patriot of the same name, had previously preached in Medford, and Mr. Coleman was minister at the Brattle Street Church in Bostonich time a choice was to be made, and it was voted to set apart the 15th day of June as a day of fasting and prayer, that God would please to direct the affairs of that day in the choice of a minister, and to request Revs. Mr. Coleman, Brown and Appleton to assist on that day, and the meeting adjourned to meet on the evening of the fast day. The final result was that Rev. Ebenezer Turell was chosen at a salary of £ 90 per year and strangers' money, which was increased to £ 100 in September; and

cement in the morning of the suspension of the banking house known by the title of Josiah Lee & Co., situated on the northeast corner of Baltimore and Calvert streets. The house remained closed after the usual hour of opening such institutions, and the news soon spread, occasioning much comment and surprise. During the morning depositors and others gathered in the bank, and various statements were afloat as to large individual losses by the suspension. It was known also that the bankers, Appleton & Co., had suspended, but no considerable depositors appeared to be involved in that. The house of Josiah Lee & Co., though an old one, is composed now of entirely different parties from those originally comprised in the title of the firm. The present members are Messrs. Jerard and George Philip Gover, who, with Mr. George S. Reese, (not long since withdrawn,) succeeded the late James H. Carter and Wm. F. Dalrymple two or three years ago. The original founders of the house were Messrs
The defeat of Burlingame. --"Our game is Burlingame," is the Union cry at this time in Boston. Of the defeat of this gentleman, the Advertiser says: "In the hour of general triumph the Republicans experience a piece of pretty severe discipline in the defeat of Mr. Burlingame. He loses his election, in a very heavy poll, for the want of 257 votes. His own city of Cambridge, which gave him 243 plurality two years ago, turned yesterday against him the cold shoulder of 18 plurality for Mr. Appleton. But for this he would have been elected. Thus is a prophet not without honor save in his own home."
