A laige .ard ethu ishstic Union ratifioa
tion meeting wtas held on S:tt5rlay
evening last, in Virginis C'iº, "Ju.i T-is
sell presided. We are happy to .ay oat it
presented a great contrast to the other
th4t is, the Grand-Union- Peace.-Wr-NNorth
and South Amalgamation Society, humor
ously called Democrats.
The speeches were delivered by gentle
men, who, under the strongest provocation,
replied as gentlemen ought, to the torrent
of foul-mouthed abuse which had been
poured out against them by the advocates
of the many timbered platform of the op
e Chief Justice IIosmer first addressed the
audience, and his speech has produced a
marked effect in favor of the Union cause.
After a description of the resources of the
STerritory, and a recapitulation of its wants,
he showed the absolute necessity that ex
isted for sending a Delegate to Congress
whose political antecedents were in h:ar
mony with the known principles of the
government, showing that otherwise, his
mission must prove not only an expensive
failure, hut an insult to the government
and a death hiow to the interests of Mon
tana. The learned Judge then adverted
to the duti:s of his position. s.atinr that
wh'n Jnstice sat enthroned in the hearts
of the pe.,pe. th, dater of the assassin
f.11 powerless, law and order was supreme,
and peace was throughout the land. This
w us no pirty stru'ele, and h' was no party
man- he loved his country, and he must
advocate her cause, and, so lopn, as life
',ast.d, Gue;h woa ll eiver h his sentimu ents.
Prh conc!esion of the le"irnd Judg..'
speech was followed by three hearty cheers.
Wilbur F. Sanders, the nomin'e for Con
i gresslonal Delegate being loudly called for
thn came forward, and in a well sustained
and lengthened speech, explained and en
forced the doctrines of the Union party.
lie said it was not his intention to degrade
himself by imitating the scurrilous and un
worthy language in which his opponents
had spoken of him. The noble cause for
which he labored, required no such aid,
and Union men despiseI such substitutes
for artrument. The opposition pariy hedr
buried ii;.n, accord ng to their stat,:ni nt.
but they were only poor grave diggers, for
numbers who had heard of his burial could
now testify to his resurrection. After dil
ige2t searsh he had been unable to find out
what was the po!itical creed of his oppo
nent, who,.since this nomination, had re
tired to the sage brush, leaving his friends
to speak for him, and their testimony was
very various. His own principles he was
proud to avow. lie h Ad it to be the pri
mniry and most sacred duty of every Amer
ican to doefen and m'tintin the Union, at
all an:l every cost. If thousands muat die
-tha:n let it be so, for tb:,r f2ouht for the
si tla:ttion of mn iionrt, an .1 :n:rrtto:s un
Iorn, would thatlk th: m for their devotion
and uni.linr faith. II hd been call..d

can nai:on, lit ao, the sl:.vry .r oscion he
wibhed to be un !:" oo:1. Did men think
that they di irad..d :h.l..selves by following
the footsteps of the misNionary and in the
enlightened spirit of true religion, endear
oring to elevate the condition and educate
the minds of the faten-the outcast. The I
necessity of the case imperatively demand
ed the steps taken by the governmer,. It
was only in self-defence that they were
driven to do this, for it was certain, that
unless the South had declared war and
I f:)rced it upon the North, the abolition of
slarery would n, ver hare been attempted
till this hour. There were. he considered,
two national parties, and two only. One
the friends of the country and one'its foes.
'Th re was no middle course in such times.
Either a man was a sustainer of the gov
ernm nt cho.en by thn p.nrpl, or hI, oppos
ed it, en I the interest of his native land, at
one and the same time. Mr. Sanders than
entered into the domestic policy of the
Un;on party, and after minutely explaining
its h.,aring on the interests of the Territo
ry, he warned them tabeware of sending
such men as th, onposite party to carry out
their w'shes. The platforms 'were similar,
but the men were widely different. If the
so-called Democrats got into office, not
even a breath of free air would they get
untaxed. Charters would be flourished in
their faces at every corner, and thov'would
not be able to go to Nevada without en
countering a toll-gate. After a long end
forcible argument and exposition of what
he cnneoived to bh the true princip!os of
p:ttriotism and policy in the present crisis,
he ceonmluded by eloquently appealing to
his fellow-citizens for their support in the
Professor Dimsdale, being then sum
moned to the stand, informed the au
dience that he was in a state of transition,
from being a foreigner to becoming a citi
zen, but that he felt no inoonveniefoee from
the operation, and the expression, "Fellow
citizens "oame quite attud t1to blira. .He
found that se ftr as f pr ncielaseeaer. -
ed, there was, as be.,seiteed,,mo euange
seesysry. Re had beesn * Ioalist ander
the British flag and he intended to be one
under the stars and stripes. lIe mast be
excused for feeling a little nervous, after
hearing a speech from the re-embodied
spiritgf his friend Sanders, so lately con
signed to the tomb by the Democratic par
ty; and also, he had, in the sa,.e place,
heard the Grand Turk fulminatirg his an
athemas against the Christians in general
and the Mlthodist society and the Sund-iy
scheols in.pirticular. le had missed the
sacred banner of the Mo slem, composed of
the breeches of the Prophet, but supposed,
that for convenience, the orator wore them.
One question he wanted to ask, and that
was, "when the government was consigned
to hell, as it had been so often by the
speakers during the preceding meeting, to
what part of the United St.at.s did thi
Democrats intend to send their Delegate '?"
The Professor then took a survey of the
situation, in the course of which he de
clared himself surprised that the South
had ventured to charge the North with at
tempting to raise the negro to a level with
the white race, for it w.is a part of the con
stitution of the slave states that three ne
groes were equal to two white men. and
the war was for the retention of th ngro.
After describing the many hued banner of
the southern svmpathiscrs in Montana Ter
ritory, the Professor wound up with a
stirring appeal to the spirit and patriotism
of tii citizn. of Virginia, and adled that
the s!rht of them'n at the polls, on the "2i:h,
supporting the Union caeu-, wou(,i h., the
mo.t valuable recompense they could award
him for his sincere but feeble a *.r·viccs. The
'rofessor's spech which was received with
repeated bursts of laughter and applause,
brought the meeting to a close.

demonstration is already suilleicntly ev

one villain named Ke!ly who was left dane

We arrived at 1 it Lh e ca the 12th. at
9 a. m.. having made: the trip in a litl,.
over four and a half dayi, includling stop

One very large Mo. mon train came in whi :

pieased with the improvemeats and altera
tions made at :;alt Lake~ since 18-'9, it
which time I passed through On my way to
California. Gireat prosperity i.s ;arked on
all I saw. The Thteatre in particular is a
splendid edifice. It would t: honorto any
of our eastern cities. The Temple, upon
which labor has again commenced, will be,
when completed in the distant future, one
of the most grand, and b&tmtiful, and sub
stantial structures in the world. There are
miany other buitdiugs, both public and pri
vate, which I would IDmetion, would time
aLid spae, admit.
Atr.r pasiing three pleasant, and, to me,
busy days at balt Laki City, we took our
seats in the co.tch for this place, where .we
arrived on the 22nd inst., after a pleasant
axed agreeable trip of six and a halt days.
No occurrence of interest transpired on the
,oute. I cannot forbear to speak here of
the want of order and system in the con
duct and management of the Overiand line
of coaheb from lVinginiauCity to this place.
It is a matter of gesewi. complaint and
which should reeive the promptattention
of those who cwn and control it. A word
to the wise,' will be stelet, 1 hope.
We fid everythiAg very quiet and very

a part of a regiment is now retur nng to
DU aver, who h.tve s,:veral leadiLn;g heyeane
and Arapaho chbief, in custody, and tbtt
they desire peace. There is much feeling
in t'b matttr and a lrge part of the eit.
