AsoTnea Mimxo iv Behalf or Free EFEtcn and or iue Umax. Another Uuiuu meeting waa held at old Trinity Church, on Hfth street, last night. The hall was crowded, amongst whom waa a fair, sprinkling of Indies. a lie raceiing uaviug uceu cuueu iu uruer, Vf. Krzyzanowski, Esq.', President of the Ger man Republican Association, was first intro duced, and entertained the audience very hap pily until the arrival of Hon. J. Ilutchins, of Ohio, the first regular speaker announced to address the meeting. Mr. Hutchins, upon taking the stand, was greeted with luud applause. Hn remarked, in commencing, that bo was glad (o find here what bad heretofore been something of a novelty in Washington a meeting in behalf of the free dom of speech." But the time had come when they ought to be held here, and held ficquent ly. The country bad never jet hud tu pas through such a crUIs as was now upon it. It had always been found fully able to lope with apd successfully resist every f irvign encroach ment, but bad never yet had to stand tho test of resistance aud treason at homo to the body politic. The question at issue now was, not whether the policy of the. Republican party was right or wrorfir, but whether the will ol the majority, fairly expressed through tho medlhin uf the ballot box, is to be carried out. They were not called upon to decide upon the merits of the Chicago or any other pi aforin, but rather whether or not the minority were to do unowcu to reduce ut again to the chaotic state we were iu belore the revolutionary war was fought. Ohio would give any amount ol men and money to sustain the Government, and put down trea son everywhere. Applause. Sovereignty on tho part of u Stato was an im possibility. X'nere could be no Government if ono Mate has the right to break it up at will. The project mint be deieuted. Ohio was at woik, aud the We-tem lleserve alone, where the speaker resided, co ild turn si the entire amount desired by the Government. Applause. But the States now in the Union would not secede. Maryland woull not secede while "The Star Spangled Banner," composed by ber own lamenteil Key, still raug in the ears of ber people ; aud the Piyors, ami Hunters, and Masons might secede Iroiu Virginia if they choie, but they could never take with them tho soil that contained the ashes of the immortal Washington. lie bad beard much talk about conditional Union men. Show him u conditional Union man, and ho would show you an unconditional secessionist. Mr. II. closed with a powerful nppeil for tho Union, which called forth the most enthusiastic applause. Speeches were then made by Prof. Daniels, of Wisconsin , linn. J. 0. Dickey, vx-invinher of Congress trom I'eiiusylvama; J. 0. Vaughn, of Kansas, formerly ol South Carolina; J. . Vinton, E-q, of Wiiicouimi; and oilier. Severn I nutiunul uirs vvere sung with excel lent tato by Mrs. Dank-!-, cf W sconsin, which received the must unbounded upplause. Before the tuecliuK aHjourned, UoV. Bebb, for merly ol Ohio, but now uf Tcuuersee, was loudly Called lor. Gov. Bebb made his appearance, but stated that, owing to the luteuess of the hour, be would defer addressing them until to night, when he would be pleased to present to them a few facta which he deemed worthy of their consideration at this time, lie should then address them, not us Republicans or us Democrats, but as Americans und friends ol the Union. E. D. Etchison, Esq., of Md , will also ad dress the meeting to-uiitht, at the sump place. 1 be meeting then adjourned, amid the great est enthusiasm. Movements or tue Military.

A meet nig will be b 11 every night, until further no tice. They expect to bo mustered iu the ser vice shortly. The second ward cnmpanv, (D, Union Rgi tntnt,) Captain John McClelland, were out on the street, drilling, lait evening. They are hourly increasing iu numbers, and will shortly volunteer u lull company for tho protection ot the ciiy. A meeting will be held this evening in the basement ol the old Triuity Church, opposite the Ciiy Hall, for the purpose of forming a couipanr. Tnu Metropolitan R lies were out on parade tcsterduy muruiug, and mudo a very hand some appearand. Previous to kaviug their quarters utthe Patent Ofiiu-,a laigeuud beau lilul American Hag was thrown to tliu breeze, and wus saluted by the company. Cipt. Nal lev, belore the salute was Kiven, said: "Sol diers I Wo are now about to salute the flag ol our beloved country the flag we have all sworn to protect ngainst all toes, come from what quarter they may, which we will never see dishonored, und are determined to defend at all hazards the emblem vve will live and die under" Three cheers were tlieu given with a will for the flag, three for Ucu. Scott, and three times three tor the Union. During the salutation, a clerk in the Census office, named Berry, booted a id groaned ut the flag and proposed three cheers lor Jeff. Davis. Alter returning to their armory, as the com pany were drilling, this mm amused hiius;!1', und created a great amount ot contusion by giving orders to the meu, which were many nmes obeyed us coming troin the captain. The men in the ranks, at last discovering the cause of the confusion, immediately chunked on him, aud could scarcely be restrained Irom doing him personal injury. It is t) be hoped that the man who would be guilty of such acts will be deult with iu a summary manner by the De partment. Tho company of Captain Carrington, sta tioned at the Post Office, were last night on drill. 'ihe detachment of the Light Infantry, nearly every allernoon, parade on Peuusylvauia ave nue.

Most of the companies receiv ed their overcoats, blankets, knapsacks, etc., at the same time. The statement, in an evening contemporary, that Captain James Goddard, of the Curriug ton Homo Guard, (Georgetown,) had resigned, is incorrect. It was Mr. Burroughs, the third lieutenant, who resigned. Win. Windship, the first lieutenant of the 'cott Rifles, (Georgetown,) has resigned, on account ot a disaffection among tho members. Esau Pickrcll, a lieutenant of the George town Mounted Guard, tendered his resiguauun on Monday evening. Thus far, tweuty-threo companies, with an aggregate uf about two thousand ono hundred men, have been mustered iu. It is thought that bc-foie Saturday we shall have about three thousaud muu uuder arms. rested.

Editor : Let me address an appeal to the proper tource, thtougb your columns, for the very few applicants from the State ot Missouri who are here a- d tndeavoriug to ge appoint ments In the different Departments In Washlr-g ton. A pi omlcent tli publican oner said that "it was easy to be a Republican in a free State, but not so easy to be one in a slave State." Now the Republicans in Missouri gave the Prrsidin near 20 000 votes, and a-e entitle 1 to be repre sennd here. There are but fw applicants Irom that State for the sliuations named above, but among that number Is Uenry II. Oitt, balling fr m the seveolh Congressional district, aud qusllBed In every way for such a position. Mr. Gilt has some reputation as a writer lor the lit erary papers of the day, and canvassed Ihe ex treme south of lllifourl for the Republican part) ana for the Union, mnkiog Republican speeches where they were never made before. Now, If such an one have any claims, ought not Mr. Chase or Mr. Smith to appoint him? Your , E. B.
