FOR VICE PRESIDENT,
Remember Election Day, the
6th Day of November.
To the Union Party of Augusta.
You responded most nobly on the 19th of Oc
tober to the call for a Graud Union Rally. True
to your ancestral instincts, you came through
storm and mire to show how ready you are a
gainst all odds to answer your country's call for
even the slightest service. But many who would
then have been with you, found it impossible,
and now ask only another chance, and they will
join you regardless of weather.
The eyes of the Union party of Virginia are
on Augusta. The eloquent Summers told you
how longingly her daughter counties of the West
were looking to their old Mother in this hour
of danger to the Union. Your boast is already
published over the land, that yours claims to be
the banner Union county at tbe polls on the 6th
of November next. Your honor is now at stake,
and each and all must see that it is redeemed.
We do not propose another "Rally," but in
vite an informal meeting from all over the coun
ty, and especially from the precincts which were
unprepared to come on the 19th of October. —
In a crisis like this all must move, and in solid
column to cheer and encourage each other.
COME THEN ONCE MORE!
On Friday, the 2d day of Next Month,
by 10 o'clock in the morning, rain or sun shine,
_nd hear your own eloquent County-men,
HOW. ALEX. H. H. STUART !
JOHN B. BALDWIN I
who promise, certainly, to address you. Oth
er speakers and hearers from other counties will
be more than welcome; but we piopose that
this shall be a meeting of the thousands of Union
loving men of Old Augusta, to counsel together
on the eve of the Great Battle fob the
Union. It will be the last occasion on which
all of our countymen can meet before the close
of the canvass ; let it be a grand family meeting,
and let all the family come. Let all who
were here in such gallant array on the glorious
19th of October come back, with their banners
and their bells, and "bring their sheaves with
them." Let the ladies and all lovers of the
Union come, of whatever party faith.
By order of the County Committee.
A Bell Turnip,
We have been presented by Mr. Wm. M.
Bell with a "Bell" turnip, raised by himself,
which weighs 8 pounds.

Election Day, Tuesday, November the 6th.
Remember that the Polls will be open only
one day, and that you should go to the polls on
that day, no matter what may be the condition
of the weather, for your votes are now more
valuable than gold and more precious than ru
bies. Let nothing prevent you from voting for
the Union ticket.
Staunton Bell Club.
Monday night, the sth of Nov., being the final
meeting of the Club, it is proposed to have a
"Hurrah Meeting": in other words, no set

all speakers on hand are invited to take part.—
The Ladies are expected to attend.

BOLIVAR CHRISTIAN, Chairman.
Friends of the Union.
Just a week from to-day the issue of Union or
Disunion will be decided. It Virginia will speak
in thunder tones in behalf of the Union ticket
those who are plotting the destruction of the
Union may be deterred from carrying their trea
sonable purposes into effect. But, on the con
trary, if she will utter a feeble yoice, there is no
doubt but that they will be encouraged to light
the brand of civil war. All the signs of the times
indicate that we are, in all probability, upon the
very verge of the awful abyss of dissolution. —
The advocates of disunion and civil war have
become sufficiently bold to announce their trea
sonable purposes from the hustings in this good
I "Old Commonwealth," where we would have
supposed the voice of treason would never have
been heard. Gov. Wise is even now, at this
very time having companies of "Minute Men
organized as they are doing in South Carolina.
Treason has doffed its mask, and is now stalking
undisguised over the sacred soil of Virginia it
self. It is time the patriotic masses of the peo
ple were aroused to a proper sense of the danger
which is now impending over their heads and
households. The honest masses are unaware of
the treasonable machinations going on in their
very midst. They are honest and patriotic and
do not suspect others of dishonest and treasona
ble purposes. The honest masses sleep in fancied
security, whilst the traitors are preparing the
train which is to destroy the fairest fabric of free
institutions which has ever been reared upon the
earth. We call upon them to awake from their
false sense of security, and behold the perils by
which they are surrounded. If they wish to
save their country from tbe most direful evils
which could possibly befall it, they should do all
that is within their power, from this time till
sunset on Tuesday next, to secure votes for the
Union ticket. It is quite probable that the vote
of Virginia will determine whether we will have
Union or Disunion, Peace or War. If the vote
of this State be cast for Breckinridge, and Lin
coln should be elected, we have not a particle of
doubt that disunion will ensue, followed by its
inevitable train of indescribable horrors. It is
doubtful whether the vote of this State can pre
vent it at all, but, if so, it can only be accom
plished by casting an overwhelming majority
for the Union ticket. This is no time for hesi
tancy or halting between two opinions. Those
who are in favor of the Union, and opposed to
civil war, it matters not what may be their po
litical sentiments in reference to measures of pol
icy which have heretofore divided parties, should
rally at once to the standard of the Union party.
It is altogether important that the Breckinridge
ticket in this State should be defeated by an
overwhelming and crushing majority, and to ef
fect this object, it is necessary that every voter
who wishes to crush the hydra head of treason,
should cast his vote for Bell aud Everett. The
votes of the friends of the Union should not be
divided between two or more tickets, but should
be concentrated upon one, and that the strongest
Union ticket, that none of the votes of Union
men may be lost. In this State Bell and Ever
ett form the strongest Union ticket, and it be
comes the duty of every Union man who desires
the overwhelming defeat of Breckinridge to cast
his vote for Bell and Everett. The Union-loving
men of all parties in this State should vote for
, Bell & Everett. Let this be done, and we be
lieve the country will be rescued from the in
numerable and indescribable evils which disun
ion would necessarily bring upon it.
Election Day, Tuesday, No
vember the 6th.
Tickets ! Tickets ! ! Tickets If!
We call the attention of our friends to the
fact that it is time they were supplying them
selves with tickets. Let them procure ticfbts
in large quantities, and let them be freely given
to every voter, Whig and Democrat, in the
Commonwealth. It is necessary, we think, that
every county and precinct should be furnished
with double as many tickets as may be actually
needed. Let the active and zealous friends of
our party, in every county and neighborhood,
furnish themselves with an abundance of tickets
at once, and let them mount their horses, and
visit their neighbors and distribute them among
both Whigs and Democrats. And let there be
also, a plentiful supply of tickets on hand at
every precinct, on the day of election.
We are prepared to furnish them at the fol
1000 for $3.00
500 for 2.00
100 for ,50
Send immediately, and send the money. Buy
them by the thousand that you may have plenty,
and get them at the lowest rates. Don't wait
for some one else to get them. Send for a thou
sand at least, and sell them by the hundred to
different neighborhoods. Persons at the Court
House towns should attend to this particularly.
No Time for Quarreling.
It is high time that the people of the South
should stop their biokerings. We have a sec
tional party North to combat; why then fritter
away the vote of the South ? We would present
no sectional front. Because the North has done
wrong we urge no retaliation in the way of a
Southern ticket. We want Rational men.—
There are National men in the field.
Confessedly, the Democratic party has no
regular national nominee. What then is to be
done ? Lincoln threatens us. His successes in
Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana give proof of
his power with the people; and yet Southern
men are divided and quarreling in the face of
danger. Democrats, if you are sincere and really
in earnest, if your desire to defeaty our enemies,
why will yon longer distract your section with
your own divisions and prevent the election of
of the only National Nominee opposed to Lin
coln ? Vote for John Bell.
Interesting BELLE Procession.
There was a Bell and Everett mass meeting at
Murfreesboro', Term., on Wednesday last. A
feature of the prooeseion which followed it con
sisted of fifty beautiful young ladies on horse
back, each attended by a gallant, and all dressed
in flowing black riding habits, black riding hats,
and white sashes, and all bearing circular ban
ners appropriately inscribed.
Loudoun and Augusta.
Remember that Augusta must give a greater
majority over Breckinridge than Loudoun. —
That good old county says that she will beat us
badly. This must not be the case. Loudoun
mast be beaten—Augusta must triumph. Lou
doun is actively at work, and it is necessary for
every man in Augusta to do his whole duty.—
Work hard and secure the triumph.
Hon. Alex. H. H. Stuart at Greenville.
We have learned from a person who was pres
ent that Hon. A. H. H. Stuart delivered a very
able speech at Greenville, in this county, on
Saturday last, to a large audience. We have
every assurance tbat the Greenville precinct will
do its dnty gallantly on the 6th day of Novem

STAUNTON SPEOTATOR AND GENERAL ADVERTISER.
! The Plot Thickens—Peace or War—The
South Must Decide.
The Petersburg "True Democrat" properly
says that the evil days are indeed upon us—that
dreaded period when the great patriotic body of
the people shall have to meet face to face the
men who for wicked ends "essay the destruction
of the happiest, most prosperous and freest land
the world ever saw," is now near at hand, and
we must prepare for it. It is idle to deny the
fact, aDd the extreme of folly to attempt to
conceal it, tbat the Breckinridge leaders of Vir
ginia have determined on REVOLUTION !
Citizens of Virginia, let no partizanship, no
sophistry, dim your eyes to the fact that the
torch is now preparing for your households, and
arms now burnishing for the shock of bloody
These are grave charges—the gravest that the
catalogue of crime contain, and no evidence
short of the most conclusive will warrant their
utterance. Such evidence is before us.
We make no reference to the open discussion
of Willoughby Newton, and the endorsement it
secured at the hands of the Cbarlotesville Con
vention—no reference to the avowed sentiment
of James Lyou, the Breckinridge Elector for
Richmond—no reference to the indirect evidence
of the Norfolk questions. The gravity of the
charge demands more decided and more recent
testimony. Unhappily for the country, it is not
From a mass of Virginia commentary on the
result of recent elections North, we select two
witnesses—choosing them with reference to the
important points of the State which they repre
sent and to the official nature of the statements
And, firstly, we ask attention to the following
from the home organ of Governor Smith, the
"We are truly sorry to say that the election
returns from the Northern States are as bad as
they well can be, and indicate the triumph of
Lincolnism over Douglas, Bell, and Breckinridge,
both singly and combined. Pennsylvania, hith
erto regarded as conservative, heads the fanat
ical stampede, and probably herself decides the
"The grave times of which we have heard so
long are now at hand. To submit to the sectional
yoke and the doctrines avowed and purposes de
clared, IS SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE. NO ONE
WILL THINK OF IT FOR A MOMENT. The
lines are cosing us round, and the painful issue is
now forced upon us. It only remains for Southern
ers to accept it like men, as they will. Tyianny,
whether from across Mason's and Dixon's line,
or across the sea, is equally intolerable and
equally to be spurned. Let the Southern States
at once arouse, and call for their men of cool
head, strong hands, resolute purpose and steady
nerves to come to the front. '• The evil day, we
believe, has come."
There can be no mistaking this language.—
It means that the inauguration of a President,
deliberately chosen by a majority of the Ameri
can people, under the forms of law and the sanc
tion of the Constitution, WILL BE RESISTED
BY FORCE—a doctrine unwarranted by reason,
law, common sense or common honesty.
The Richmond Enquirer speaking with still
greater authority, and with, if possible, more
explicitness of utterance, marks out the pro
gramme as follows:
"Virginia can no more prevent the dissolution
of this Union after Lincoln's election, than she
can prevent that election. She will be powerless
to prevent civil war, with all its attendant hor
rors. Any one of the Southern States can, and
some of them will, involve the whole country,
North as well as South, in the internecine strife
of a bloody and desolating civil war. Virginia
will, by a majority of her people, decide upon
resistance, while a large minority may desire to
postpone resistance for the 'overt act;' but
hitched as she is to the Southern States, she will
be dragged into a common destiny with them,
no matter what may be the desire of her people.
. We believe that a large majority of the people
of Virginia, if the opportunity of a State Con
vention was allowed them, would vote for im
mediate resistance and for a common destiny
with the Southern States, and with this belief,
WE WOULD ADVISE THE SLAVE STATES
NOT TO HESITATE TO STIKE AN EARLY
BLOW FROM THE FEAR THAT VIRGINIA

SOUTH."— Richmond Enquirer.
Let every Virginia father, every Virginia
brother, every Virginia master, read this diabol.
icle plot and ask himself if this is the banquet to
which he should be invited.
The Enquirer avows that on the election of
Lincoln some of the Southern States will forth

as South, IN THE INTERNECINE STRIFE OF

unionists—be restrained by no fears as to the
course of Virginia—strike an early blow—inau

and let no lingering fears that there is love of
Union in the old Dominion embarrass you in
your damnable purposes. Wait for no State
Convention to declare the people's will, but
plunge at once the cotton States into the traitor
ous vortex of bloody Revolution, aud Breckin
ridgers will see to it that you are amply sus
We turn from this revolting picture to sum
mon the law-loving citizens of this ancient Com
monwealth to their great patriotic duty in this
hour of their country's direst need—their State's
greatest responsibility—and we take leave to tell
the Enquirer that it has mistaken the feelings of
the Virginia people. Against this horrid pro
gramme ot bloody revolt, this plunging of North
and South into internecine war, the patriotic
heart of Virginia solemnly protests. Let that
protest be heard at the ballot-box. Every man
who casts his vote in Virginia for John C. Breck
inridge, with the above programme staring him
in the face, offers a bonus to bloodshed —a pre
mium for treason. Every vote for Breckinridge
is a direct appeal to the Cotton States to raise
the banner of civil war. Citizens of the South,
will you thus unfurl the black flag of Disunion
or will you unite upon the only man who has
the shadow of a chance of at once conserving
your rights and perpetuating in peace this glori
ous Union ?
Augusta a Bell County.
Augusta is one of the strongest Bell counties in
the State in several respects. In the first place it
has more Bell voters than any county, save pos
sibly Loudoun. In the second place, it has more
persons by the name of Bell, we venture to say,
than any county in the State, all of whom, we
suppose, will be related to the President if Bell
should be elected. In the third plaoe, it has
more ladies who are entitled to be considered
belles than any county in the good "Old Com

On the 23rd the vote stood : Bell and Ever

Democrats Acknowledge their Defeat in Ad
In the "Virginia Sentinel," (Alexandria) of
the 30th of June last, now supporting the ticket
of Breckinridge and Lane, we find the following
frank admission as to the almost inevitable re
sult of the Presidential election in Va. with the
Democracy divided. It says :
"If these two divisions enter the field in op
posing columns, we verily fear that both will be
defeated beyond a reasonable doubt. We trust
our readers are men who can bear to hear the
truth. However unpleasant it may be, it is al
ways wholesome. This is not our opinion alone.
It is the opinion of our best informed men on
both sides, whether Breckinridge men or Doug
las men. The Enquirer says an "arrangement"
is "required." The Richmond Index says the
same. Recorder says the
same. The Rockingham Register says the same.
But space fails us. It may be assumed as true,
that unless some unexpected revelation shall
bring us unexpected relief, some party arrange
ment is necessary to prevent the voice of Vir
ginia from being uttered by a minoiity of her
people, and against her wishes."
Here is the calm and unimpassioned voice of a
leader, speaking in unmistakable words to his
followers; and, at that time, uncommitted to
the support of either wing ot the Democracy,
admitting four months before the election, that
they would be defeated "beyond reasonable
doubt." Further, "this is notour opinion alone #
It is the opinion of our best informed men on
both sides." The "Enquirer" says an "arrange
is required." Now, this would-be arristocratic
journal, that has lately undertaken to speak for
Virginia should Lincoln be elected, is playing
the brag game iv the feeble'cause of the pitiable
Secession-Disunion, Yancey, Rhett, Orr, Keitt,
Breckinridge and Lane faction, calling it the
"States-Rights Party," and boastingly declares
they will beat the Bell and Everett and Douglas
and Johnson party both, by an overwhelming
majority. Will any national man give heed to
such ridiculous boasts, after reading the previous
acknowledgement of defeat, under existing cir
cumstances, by the same journal? We think
not. Therefore, we confidently appeal to every
Union man in Virginia to rally to the hearty
support of our enequalled ticket. Let every
voter be at the Polls on the 6th day of Novem
ber, of whatever shade of politics, and cast his
vote for the only National candidates—Bell and
Everett. Here you have in black aud white the
acknowledgement of the divided Democracy
four months beforehand, that they would be
beaten. You surely will not be laggards in the
great contest before you, when you have such
cheering encouragement from your opponents to
go to work with a will.
See that your neighbors, who are debating
whether they shall stay at home or vote for
Breckinridge, read this extract from the "Senti
nel," and urge it upon them to drop poor Breck
inridge, who has not, as is here admitted, a
shadow of chance for success, under the existing
circumstances, and come to the Polls and exer
cise tbe glorious privilege of freemen, rendering
thereby a lasting service to their great country,
by voting for Bell and Everett—"The Constitu
tion, the Union, and the Enforcement of the
Laws"—by whose election peace will be ensur
ed to all sections, and unexampled prosperity
guaranteed, to the best Government, properly
administered, on the habitable Globe!
"Wave, ye Bell men, all your Banners wave,
And charge with all your chivalry."
And the day is ours. The laurel of victory is
in view, do not fail to grasp it.
Appointment of Master Armorer.
The State of Virginia having determined to
establish an Armory in Richmond city, to se
cure its success the most competent and expe
rienced person in the manufacture ot arms should
be appointed Master Armorer. It happens for
tunately for the State that"one of her own sons,
who was complimented with the appointment
by the British Governmeuc of Chief Engineer of
the manufacture of small arms at Enfield, Eng
land, has just returned to his native State. He
has more knowledge and experience than any
man in this country, and as be is a Virginian by
birth, and has returned to the Statue of his nativ
ity because he prefers it to any laud under the
sun, we cannot doubt that the appointment will
be tendered to him. On leaving England, as a
token of its appreciation of his valuable serv
ices and personal merits, the British Government
presented him with 1000 pounds sterling. He
could get large salaries in Europe, but prefers to
live in Virginia, and would"take pride aud pleas
ure in serving his native State. The Spanish
Government offered him a salary of $5000 per
annum to take charge of its small arm facto
ries, which he declined. We feel anxious that a
person thorougly competent to carry out the de
tails of the necessary machinery, tools &c, be ap
pointed, otherwise this enterprise will never re
flect any credit upon the State. We hope, there
fore, that the appointment of Master Armorer
will be tendered to Mr. Jas. H. Burton, now at
"Covington Weekly Times."
We have received the first issue of the "Cov
ington Weekly Times," established by Messrs.
Holloway and Humphreys, in Covington, Alle
ghany county, Va. It is a large, neat paper,
and promises to be edited with ability. It sup
ports the Secession ticket—Breckinridge aud
Lane. We are sorry to see 6uch a good paper
devoted to such a bad purpose. We fear the
advocacy of tbat ticket will prevent tbe "Times'*
from securing that degree of support which is
necessary to pecuniary success.
Now and Then. —Mr. Breckinridge, in his
speech at Frankfort, last winter, said :
"I trust the time may never come when it
may be deemed necessary for the Congress of the
Uuited States in auy form to interfere with the
question [of slavery] in the Territories. SO
FAR IT HAS ONLY BEEN PROMOTIVE OF
EVIL TO DS, AND WOULD PORTEND CN
LY EVIL IN THE FUTURE."
Now, does Mr. Breckinridge intend to insist
upon a proposition that has "only been promo
tive of evil" to the people of the South ?

For the Spectator.
Mr. Douglas In Stanuton.
This unfortunate adventurer had the accumu
lated bad luck, on Wednesday last, to be repre
sented in this place by the two political Kuight
Errants in his cause—Messrs. Tim. Rives and
Wm. F. Gordon—who were imported with many
fond hopes, and whose factitious and mushroom
claims to greatness owe their creation, necessa
rily as well as naturally, to the brisk demand for
even moderate talent in that God-abandoned fac
tion. By reason ot notice in bloated capitals
posted over town and country, that the Hon. D.
W. Voorhees, C. L. Vallandingham, Patrick
Henry and perhaps Davy Crockett would prob
ably be present quite a smart sprinkling of cred
ulous country-people, of all parties, was brought
together. But when the trains and stages con
tinued to arrive, unfreighted with these precious
names, Mr. Rives and Mr. Gordon suddenly be
came the heroes of an ovation scarcely tran
scended by the splendid triumph that awaited
the exiled Napoleon on his return from Elba.
Mr. Wm. F. Gordon—of protean memories—
such as Taylor, Calhoun, Breckinridge and sun
dry others, was introduced by Gen. Harman in a
few brief but eloquent laudatory remarks, in
which he spoke, innocently, of "this illustrious
son of an illustrious sire." Well, after this bal
derdash, as the orator himself soon proved it to
be, the "illustrious" proceeded to rise, slowly
and majestically, some thought even painfully,
from his seat, aud, after exhibiting to the spec
tators, for about two minutes, a very tragical
face, and a very white vest—just such as is seen
on the statue of Cicero—he sternly, and in the
fashion of a brigand, assured us, with his thumbs
tastefully hooked in the arm-holes of his Tully
waistcoat, that "he had always been a Demo
crat," and besides, that "he was reared at the
feet of Gamaliel," with which original quotation,
the orator concluded the argumentative part of
his address, and seemed to labor during the rest
of the time not so much to exalt Mr. Douglas, as
to show into how many graceful shapes the hu

Exactly one half-hour passed slowly away be
tween the tragical rising of the "illustrious" gen
tleman, even to the settiDg of the same, which
last decided "hit"—accompanied by merited ap
pause—was performed by the orator with a
very pleasant smile, after having perpetpated the
most full blown brilliant Senatorial failure, in a
small way, on record.
Next, "the greatest orator Virginia can boast,"
the "Old War Horse" of the Democratic party—
Mr. Tim. Rives—was thrust upon the congrega
tion, who greeted him with a hearty recognition,
such as is usually bestowed upon an old and hon
ored political leader, but which seemed rather
out of place to those who well knew that until
within the last three weeks he had never been
heard of by nine-tenths of this well-drilled as
Mr. Rives is a very ugly man, and therefore
it probably occurred to him that the graces
would not suit his style—so, scorning the charm
ing self-satisfied attitudes of Mr. Gordon, he fled
to the other extreme, and, tor four hours enter
tained a patient people, with numberless antics,
which would have been creditable in the ring,
but were singularly out of place before an assem

From this chaos of grimaces, it was occasionally
possible, by close attention, to receive something
which a very warm admirer of Mr. Douglas
might call argument, but which had often be

But the supleness of Mr. Rives is one of his
chief merits as a speaker, and though plainly
not meant by nature to reach the highest emi
nence amongst the intellectual race to which he
belongs, yet had he been born a good-looking
babboon, he would have arrived at early dis
tinction in some of the grotesque accomplish
ments which adorn that race ot beings.
With real good-will towards this gentleman,
who in private seems another being entirely, I
have one parting word of advice ; that he will
at once and forever renounce public speaking, tor
which he is wholly unfit, and return to the so
cial pleasures of home for which he seems emi
nently suited. The voice of flattery, whioh calls
him out, is not always the voioe of truth.
Letteb of One of Walkeb's Compateiots.—
Col. Rudler, sentenced to the Costa Rica mines
for four years, has transmitted the following let
ter to the commandante of Truxillo, Don Nor
berto Martinez, through the English consul:
My Dear Sir: I canuot take my departure with
out first acknowledging to you my heartfelt
thanks for the friendship which you evinced for
me during my confinement and trial. Your con
duct in this instance is worthy of the highest
praise both at a Christian and a gentleman. As
the former, you have fully carried out the pre
cepts of our Holy Church, to return good for
evil. As the other, you have shown that gener
ous and high-toned character which few men
would have had the fortitude to carry out in the
trying ordeal which I have just passed.
To your kind lady I am also much indebted
for the many comforts received at her hands,
and now, through you, tender ber my grateful
thanks. I also desire to make you the instru
ment in conveying my thanks to those gentle
men who have so ge_erously befriended me. In
doing this you will add to the many obligations
which I have already been indebted to you. In
conclusion, permit me to assure you tbat ray con
duct shall be such as to prove to you, and all
those who have befriended me, that I was not
unworthy of it. May God's blessing be with
you and yours, is my earnest prayer.
Your more than friend,
A. H. Rudlee.
Boquet presented to Hon. Thos. S. Flournoy.
In our haste in preparing the account of the
proceedings of our Grand Rally of last week, we
omitted to mention the fact that a patriotic, Un
ion-loving lady ot this county presented a beau
tiful boquet of flowers to Hon. Thos. S. Flournoy
as he concluded his eloquent speech. She se
lected our gallant friend, Col. Marshal McCne, to
present tbe boquet for her. Accompanying the
boquet was the following note from the hand of
the fair donor:
Mount Solon, Oct. 19th, 1860.
Hon. Thos. S. Flottbnoy— Respected, Sir: —
Will you accept this boquet, as an humble testi
monial from one who admired the gallant manner
in which you demeaned yourself as our standard
bearer in the memorable contest of 1855, as well
as in the support of our glorious Union ticket in
this canvass. May each flower as it contributes
its beauty and fragrance to the collection, be
emblematic of the Union we so much cherish—
may no star in its bright galaxy ever be blotted
out, be stained with dishonor, or shoot madly
from its sphere. May the tones of the great
"Bell" of the Union, where "Ever-et _" tones
are heard, sound the death knell of all the Lin
colns and Yanceys, North and South. And if
success perches upon our banner in Virginia, as
it must, whether doomed to defeat in the grand
battle on the 6th of November or not —may the
young ladies of our State, my sisters, weave you
a chaplet worthy the brow of a Henry.
With sincere respect, yours,

"The Eagle Oeatob's Boquet."—We notice
that a piece of poetry bearing the above title has
been attracting considerable attention through
out the country—both ob account of the purity
of its style and the noble sentiments contained
therein. What first suggested the idea to the
author was an incident that occurred during the
speech of Msj. Gustavus A. Henry, in this place.
A lady sent him a splendid and elaborately ar
ranged boquet of roses and beautiful flowers, at
tached to which was a card with the following
sentiment inscribed thereob :—
"Bvery leaf sends up a prayer
For the preservation of the Union.
From a Ladt."
We are proud to announce that our fair and
gifted towns woman, Mrs. A. S. Christian, ar
ranged that boquet, and is the author of those
noble sentiments. Mrs. C. is a granddaughter
of Gen. Andrew Lewis, a revolutionary officer,
_cd such sentiments come with good grace from
the descendant of one who fought and bled that
this Union might be established.— Tuscambia
Not Hung.—The two Hitchings, father and
son, arrested near Cheraw, S. C, on suspicion of
being engaged in an insurrectionary plot, have
not been hung as reported. They were tried be
fore a committee of seventy persons selected
from the several beat companies in the district,
and were acquitted by a vote of eleven for bang

determined that the-two Hitchings should leave
the State, and appointed a subcommittee of six,
who forthwith performed the duty of conduct
