The Fall pf Richmond.
The neis published to-day, from anextra.bf the
Carolinian, is of a startling character; and, if
true, finds us ot'unprepared, for though sucb an
e.vent. w4s not immediately looked for, it was not
deemed impr le. Now that it'has happened,
we are not osed to criticise the wisdom of
such a -mov6, or lament'over it as an unfortunate,
irremediable catastr9phec. Let us rather strip for
the fight, and meet the issue bravely and, with
.-renewed energy, determination and devotion.
."With the fall of Richmond, the cause is not lost.

terms ate pay in advance; and single copies. not

Have-w a Town Councill?
This question has been propounded, and an
answer requested, a difiult one -we confess, and
- a problem 'which only a Rhiadelphia lawyier
inight solve. As for us, we knocg under, but
judgipg from thq sen.es of sight and smell, we
