MEKTiJio iw the Thibi> Ward.?Last eve
ning, the lriends of Mr. A. C. Richards met in
the basement of Temperance Hall. Among
those present were many persons Irom the
fsecond, Fourth and Fifth wards, with a lew
from other wards.
Mr. A. R. Shepherd called the meeting to
order,and nominated Alderman J. F. Brown for
chairman, who was elected by acclamation.
Mr. Brown, on taking thechair, said they
liad met for au important purpose?important
in times of peace, but much more so now that
Ci wicked rebel lion is in our land. They had
come not alone to select delegates to a conven
tion and nominate candidates for offices, but
strengthen the hands of the (government in its
etloi ts to put down the rebellion. It must not
fre ?aid that they had no influence, every man
V ielded an influence, and he who fails to exert
tiiat influence in favor of his government is a
Caitor. They had met with a disposition to
Iia-rcnonize on the selection of good men who
vould receive the support of all. They were
g?il pledged agaiiiet any schism in theirranks.
and they must abide the decision of the con
tention. If they were to split among them
selves. then will their eiiPinies take advantage
ot it. Thry should work with unity, and would
t> sure to succeed.
Mr. F. L. Harvey was chosen secretary.
The following resolutions were then intro
duced by Mr.(j. A. Hall, and were unanimous
ly adopted:
" The I ncondi'ional T'nion men of the Third
V ard, in the city of Washington, in primary
H eeting assembled, determine and declare?
1. That no niau can serve two masters, for
f her he will hate the one and love the other,
Ci else he will hold to the one and despisa the
l her. He cannot serve God and Mammon.
?>. That God calls upon us to choose this day
V hom we will serve: and we answer, let others
ct ? as they may, as for us and our household
V will serve the Lord! We stand by our
v hole country, and nothing but our country:
while life endures will liotd up the hands
cr her constituted authorities until all opposing
tortea :ire prostrate In dust.
3. That treason to the institutions of our
t hers, criminal and unnatural everywhere,
i- greatly more so in this city?born of the
* nion, the child of the Union, baptised in the
nam of the father of the Union, deriving its
life blood and it- continued existence only
liom the Union. This city could not be the
capital of either fraction of our conntry once
C1-severed. Her (treat edifices would soon be
come the home of owls and bats, and all her
JL autiful parks and dwellings a desolation.
1 lie citizen of Washington who favors this
rebellion is a traitor not only to his country
and his family but to the fame, the coming
E andenr, and all the best interests of the city,
lit- is the enemy of his country aud his city,
e< d should forthwith be expelled from both.
4 That we rejoice to know and declare that
there are few now leit amongst us so bas?.
The great heart of the city is loyal. She stands
and bus ever stood by the flag." She never fal
tered for a moment when surrounded and all
euccor cutoff; never cowered in the presence
Ot the enemy; but her true men flew to arms,
tuid her true women ministered to the sick and
Vounded soldiers when the battle was over.
.">. That 111 the coming and all future elections
Ve will elect all true and reliable Ur iw 1 men,
t&:id none other, to all offices of profit and trust
in the city, and 111 every way in our rxiwer
sustain the President who has so 110 iy de
Jmded us.
Dr. Keasby than introduced the foi' wing,
V'hich was also adopted:

th- horse ran against a tree uear the corner of
the Avenue, and he was pitched out; the wagon
feeing brcken to atoms, but he was only slight

Fikst Quality Sk<;abs,ani> Tobacco may
fee procured at the store of Henry Bogus, S'%r
Huildings, corner Pennsylvania" avenue and

their r* pular supply, and he never disappoints

"Second?Will yon give the noninees of that

port J"
T? these interrogatories Mr. Dixon has trans
mi ned the following reply:
Washington Citt, April'2f?, .
L. 11'. Di.r.-ey, Esq.:?Sir: I hare the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of a copy of a resolu
tu n, containing two^nterrogatories to be ad
dressed 10 Mr. 5ticharosnnd myself with refer
ence to our a<-n6n in the event of 'i decision by
the nominating convention in favor of the one
or the other tor the position of Collector. In
response, 11? g leave to imormyou, and through (
you those propounding these questions, that j
h:td they been submit ed to me as a candidate
by a convention composed of those who were j
free to act in their choice, and nntrammelled j
by previous public pledges and resolutions, I !
should most unhesitatingly have answered them.
But since the same have been propounded to i
me by a ward meeting, called by those who j
were "opposed to my re-election, as is evident .
from their action and the solemn pledge which
was required and exacted from the delegates
elected, 1 must, in justice to myself and for the
reason first assigned, respectfully decline to
answer your interrogatories.
As my opponents are trying to make a differ
ent impression, I have only to add that the Ad
ministration has had no "more consistent or
earnest supporter in all its measures for the
suppression of the rebellion than myself. All
mv fellow-citizens know well that this has
been my position from the start.
Very respectfully, &c. Wm. Dixoh.
