A large meeting of 0* citizen* of Ltnchharg, eonven-I ea at Martin's Warehouse Weducsday night, for the pur pose of considering our present relations wilh the North, and concerting measures that the exigencies of the times forcibly suggest. The meeting was called to order by W. M. Blackford, K*<|., who moved that Judge D. A Wilson be appointed Chairman. Judge W., on taking tbu Cbsir.'brlefly stated the ob ject of the meeting. W. 1, V aneey moved that a committee of seven be appointed by the Chair to prepare business. On motion of R. II. UUss, the number of the commit tee was increased to eleven. The Chair appointed the following gentlemen upon the committee, vlx: John V. Speed, Win. T. Tanecy, Wm. It. Blackford, R. II. Ola**, Win. S Morris, Janies (jar laud, Charles W. Hutton, II. Dunuington, I*. U. Gilmer, C. Clark, and Seth Wood roof. While Hie commit let- were out, T. J. Kirkpatrick and R. (I. U. Kean were called upon, and addressed the meeting, after which, J. U. Speed, Chairman of the committee, appeared in meeting, and submitted the following preamble and r.«*< lotions, which were unanimously adopted: H'htrttu. We, the citizens of the city of Lvnchburg, have reviewed wilh painful interest the record ol the rv ceut tragedy at llarjier's Kerry, »ud have marked from day to day the accumulating evidence of a diseased and poisoned public sentiment North, in regard to a subject vitally a Meeting our peace and the general of the States South : And whereas, iu place of sympathy for those who have suffered by this outrage, and of condemnation of its authors and instruments, we sec sympathy for the guiltr and a declared purpose to vindicate their crimes and to Stimulate a rr|ietitioii of them : And whereas,we perceive no counter-action North, on which to base a reasonable hope in their returning sense or duty and of justice, but rather, hi lieu of It, melancholy manifestation* of an en mity filed, bitter and implacable: And whereas, while we deeply lament thus condition of public sentiment, and would rejoice to witness a total revolution in it, arid a restoration to all the harmonies that pervaded this Union at the period of its formation, vet iu view of wliat we see I.nd feel and know, we, the citizens of Lynchburg, in gen eral meeting assembled, without distinction of political party, deem it our duty to commit together as to the best means to be adopted for the assertiou and defence of our rights. Therefore, resolved, I. That our system of domestic slavery, recognized hv the laws of God. and guaranteed by the Bute and Koder al Constitutions, is an institution viullv connected with the Welfare of the Southern States ; and all interference with it, except hv the people of the several slavcholding Bute* in separate conventions assembled, is violatire of the pledged faith of tho conutry and promotivc only of evil. ‘ •1. That we acknowledge our.fcalty to the General Go vernment, and our allegiance to the Commonwealth ot V irgiuia, and will ever seek to discharge our obligation? to both. Hut the Constitution of the United States, be ing a compact, binding upon all the parties to it, creating reciprocal rights and duties, those who love the Union and desire a continuance of these rights, can onlv hotm to maintain them liy a rigid observance of the duties it imposes; and when wo see a nettled purpose to disre gar.l them and to s|>ort with the lives and property of our fellow citizens, it becomes our solemn duty to consi der what measures arc proper for our protection, and to Uke the stej* necessary for their enforcement. 3. That the doctrine of an ‘'irrepressible conflict”' be t r. eti the rights or the North and the South, and tho general approval it has received nt the North, coupled . .. y ’u,ir »M*rn nrnru inert) in condom Da* mn of it, furnish melancholy ground for the apprehension that we are on the ere of a fatal revo lution, anil last liasti uinp to a terrible conflict. * That while we are unprepared to recommend what specific measure* should be inaugurated at this time, yet lyeare willing to ro-upernte cordially and thnron’gidy with our brethren of this and oilier Southern States iu the adoption of sucb steps as may lie deemed judicious and necessary. Htb. That a committee of five lie appointed by the Chairman of this meeting, to prepare a petition to the l-egMaturr ol Virginia, in behalf of the citiiens of this place, asking that immediate step- be taken to place the Commonwealth in a condition of complete preparation for self-defence sgainsl cm roaehments front all quarters. That onr Senator anil Delegates be requested to use their exertions to carry out this recommendation, and further, that we are willing to bear any taxation that may be im poseil for this purpose. nth. That the thanks of the people of the Common wealth are due to the Kresident of the I'nite.l States for his prompt ami efficient artion in suppressing the teceiit outbreak at Harper”* Kerry, and also to Gov. Wise for his readiness, efficiency ami ability in making the neces sary preparations for th> faithful execution of the laws, and for tho defence of the State against contemplated invasion. 7th. That the foregoing preamble ami resolutions l-o published In our city |ia|iers,and that the editors through out the State l>e requested to insert them in their res pective papers. Wm. U. itrownlow, ofTenn., who was casually In the audience, was called upon to address the meeting, which, in spite of ill-health, he proceeded to do with great ac ceptance and force. Maj. J. Garland. John M. Speed, and S. Garland, Jr., were called on and proceeded to address the meeting T. J. Kirkpatrick offered the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted : Httolved, That this meeting rejoices to seethe citizens of Lynchburg arc preparing to meet the dangers which threaten Virginia ami her sister States of the South, by forming well-drilled military cotn|ianies, and we do here by recommend that they continue the good work until the city of Lynchburg shall have become thoroughly prepar ed to do her duty—ber whole duty, iu the worst exigen cy that may arise. wrrrtxn is sauos.

To Ike Member* of the General .hsembly: The first and moat important duty, which will engage your attention, is to provide the means of protecting the lives and property of the people of Virginia from the irruptions of Northern ruffians. It is not necessary here to dwell upon the lesson which the llarperN Ferry raid lias written m characters of blond on our domestic annals. The military spirit of Uie Commonwealth is fully aroused, and volunteer companies are forming in every county, town and village. The citizens, through out her borders, are calling upon the Slate for arms and the question is. have we a supplv of such weapons or defence as are adequate for thu emergency. Kverv military man in the Stain, and in indred every civilian at all conversant with the subject, will he constrained to give u negative answer to this question The late improvements in all description* of firearms for war like purposes have wrought a great revolution in thn art of war. \ irginia Is almost wholly unprovided with weapon* of the most - improved order. The arm* de posited at Richmond and Lexington, and those which have been supplied to the various volunteer corps arc, m a great measure, comparatively worthless Tho Legislature, then, should take immediate steps to re ined* this defect in our system of defence. The prin cipal object of this communication is to bring to your notice the recommendation, which concludes an ab'o ami learned article on ••Modern Tactics” in th„ Southern I.Herory Meuenger for January lojt). The writer of that article, Major R. K. Colston, seems to have anticipated this very conjuncture of affairs Ho says: " Wc hare, in Virginia, about sixty thousand muskets and rifles deposited in nearly equal proportions at Richmond and le-xineton. without .1_ arms now in the hands of volunteer corps of the Suit If the citizens of Yirgiuia depend upon those arms to repel a foreign toe, or vindicates their own nghu in case of necessity, they are relying upon a broken rod. such as thev are, these arms are worth just their weight as old iron; they arc furnished with the old fashioned Hint lock, which is so obsolete that dints ara no longer made or imported. It would be impossible to get flints enough to supply them for a whole cam paign, for a flint is worn out after twenty shots But ■ I this objection were removed, it would be sheer mad ness to oppose such arms to the Minnie rifle. A very simple transformation can, however, change these use less arms into very efficient weapons: 1st. The flint lock must be changed to percussion; 3d. The barrels must he giound according to the mode adopted in tho I nilcii States Armories: 3d. A brurh sight and haussa must be adapted to the barrel; tbm a number of Min nie ball moulds must be made, and ammunition nro uared for fiiture use. If, at the same time sabre liayonels could be substituted for the old bayonets it would be an advantage; but this is not indispensable The Iranslormaiiun indicated is now going on with re gard to the United States arms, it was made several years ago in the French service, and it is probably completed in the English service. The transformed weapon IS the Minnie musket, inferior lo some extent to the Minnie rifle, but, nevertheless, an excellent weapon, with an effective range of nine hundred orono thousand yards. It is probable that by using the facili ties of the Richmond Armory and establishing a tempo rary workshop at the Virginia Military Institute, the arms at those two places can be transformed at an ei pense of $1.50 apiece,or even less." Your attention is respertfully invoked to the above suggestion, which is worth your prompt and earneit consideration. The necessity for good serviceable weapons is imperative, and there is certainly no cheaper nor more expeditious method of obtaining the requisite supply of such arms than that whirh is pointed out by Major Colston. 1 WESTMORELAND OPPOSITION MEETING IN MONONGALIA.
