The meeting to-day
We need not invoke a grand rally at the assemblage to day. The immense popular enthusiasm will bring together such a concourse as has never been seen in Richmond
Not even the days of 1861 approached the blazing fires which Lincoln
has just kindled afresh in every Confederate heart.
They will flash forth to-day in the matchless eloquence of the most gifted and patriotic statesmen of the Confederacy
, and the responsive thunders will be echoed are long from a hundred battle-fields.
We can only hope that propitious weather and proper facilities for hearing all that is said will enable every man, woman and child of Richmond
to be present on the august occasion, and hear the answer to the tyrant.
