At the great mass meeting in Bal

Rev'eriysJohnson, tho ablest lawyer
Jq tihe country,. proved that Grant had
ft usurped power as to violate the
Constitution, but attributed it to hiA
ignorance. The meeting adopted the
following ringing resolves :
"ResliVed; That we view with ap.
prehension and alarm the course and

in front of one of the m1o1t lovely

during the past few years, and comi

and established. The number of its
inhabitants is at present estimated at

The near approach of the August
meeting, of the State Asooiato -of
the 8:qvivors'; pf ths. Wte,war, ard
the " attractiv . progr-amme which It
offers, should serve to stir up in the
heaa'te of our would people an' iotive
sympathy with the objeots it is inten
dad to cherish. Apart from the de
Bire which every old soldier of the
Confederacy and his children would
naturally feel in securing a correct
history of the stirring times through
which we have lately passed, w hile
events are aonparutively fresh in the
minds of all, this Association com
mends itself to public attention on
other and equally high grounds. It
proposes not only to make aid pre.
seivo a true record of the deeds of
arms performed by the patiiotic sol.
diery of the State in their gallant
struggle for independence, and to
bring yet nearer heartis already warm
ed to enou other by participation in
mutual trials and common dangers,
but to go futther aid inaugurate a
great system of benificence towards
the children of our fallen brothers.
To honor our dead comrades by rear
ing lasting mouuments of granite and
marble, in commemorttion of their
valor and their virtues, is not enough
to iatizfy the heart of iin whose
whole soul was in the contest ; but to
extend to their fatherluss children the
hand of sy mpathy *tad support, and to
open to them opportuities of educii
tion aid advuncement, are eurely the
neans best calculated to do honor to
the memory of our dead. To u-, their
comiradea in the field und in the eoip,
and to the tr. ae people of the State,
are these helpless onies left as special
wards. Should ve now 131ive then
