"Hallo! Bill, what's gut into the Uoi/s
"Sure, Dick. I can't till, but I bslieve thev i* infeeteJ with
the Devil."? Old I'lay.
1( iu known 10 all ihe good people<>f this t???oi!ly city, iltat
tor a week piovlous noiicu was) given In the Whig journals,
thill a Whig meeting wiiul.l bo held at the African Church on
Friday night, 19th Inst., to nominate candidates for tho vt??i
oils offices to be filled under tho city charter, from Superin
tendent of Poor House to his Honor, tho ftl?yor. It was to
be u Whig meeting, and to nominate none, ft.v.- Whigs. It
was in tho high-sounding language of one of llioir journal.-,
to show a "just Indignation ami resentment for the heartless
proscription of the 'basement officers, anil the unprincipled
gerry niandsr of the State.'
The hour camc, and with it two hundred and twenty
Whigs all tolJ, as motley a crow as ever filled tho forms 111
? lio Church. As the bell tolled eight, a hard looking cuslo
mor arose and proposed that an old and respected merchant
be voted to the Chair, He was voted into it; but when call- |
ed for, he did not come. The sapitn, who proposed him,
finding thai he had decamped, nominated Col. McKae, who
was duly elected, and duly took his neat. A Secretin y was
then appointed iu the person of a young gentleman plightly
bald, but whose cranium was, nevertheless, luminous.
These preliminaries satisfactorily settled, ono !Mr. Wil
liams oHrred a resolution limiting the nominations to be
made to such offices as are now tilled by Democrats, which
was warmly advocated by rtlr. It. T. Daniel, ami opposed by
Messrs. Minor and Price. At this stage ot the proceedings,
u thin visaged gentleman arose and moved that the meeting
adjourn, because oi the illness of the present Mayor. He
fore this occurred, however, we Imd a beautiful exemplifica
tion of the decency and order of the Whig party. A tall,
white-headed gentleman arose, and began to urge the meet
ing nut to be guilty of the indecency of canvassing the disposal
oi an office now held by perhaps a dying man. A few slicks
rapped on the floor, hut hisses more abounded. ''There tire
some 4'test hi the house, Mr. Chairman," said the speaker.?
The hisses became more furious. "Keep order, gentlemen,"
said the Chair. "All gentlemen will, sir," continued the
speaker, "and as for the geese who are hissing, 1 dmit mind
iliem?they are fools and blackguards." lit-ing blessed with
strong lungs, he succeeded in making himself heard alter a
time, mid mil down seemingly satisfied with his etlort.
Mr. Williams's resolution being withdrawn, .Mr. Minor
olTereil one of condolence with, and thanks to, our present
Mayor, prefacing it with a few remarks, showing his ureal
love lot his honor, and appealing lo the thin visiged gentle- [
man to say if he ineatn certain remarks for him. (M.) "I J
addressed ihe meeting, not Mr. M.," wiih the curt retort.?
liy this time another actor was ready to appear upon the
stage. Mr. A. A. Hughes stepped forth, hat and cane in
hand, and overcoat on, and said, "Mr. Chairmun!" This
was done iu a very proper manner, and certainly no citi'/.i u
had a better right lo apeak than Mr. Hughes; but then en
sued a scene which beggars description. No sooner did In
open his mouth, tliun n simultaneous burst ol yells, hisses,
stampings, and screeching*, greeted him on all sides. He
<|iiieily wiped the sweat from his capacious forehead, and
waited for the subsidence of the tumult. It ceased, and
again he ussnytd lo speak. Again these terrible screeehings
sealed his mouth. A third ellorl was not more successful.
The blood rushed to his lace and lie staggered. Recovering
himself, however, he laid aside his hat and cane, and proceed '
ed to divest himself of his overcoat. This action whs ap j
pUudt-d after tins fashion. Uu? it, Arclir," "hurrah, old hi
low," "stand up to'em like a man." Andt.ohed.il stand
np to them like a man. When, by the united efforts of the
Chairman and several Muses, quiet was restored, he began
again, "I thought I was iu n Whig inci ting, and that a Whig
would be heard." "You're a Democrat," shouted the crowd
"I am no such thing. 1 am an inborn Whig." "Did'nt you
vote for old Pierce'/" "No, 1 did'nt." "You voted foi t:aa
kle, though." "Yes, 1 did, but"? Ho could say no more
for had all the Devils in I'andeninuiuin been let loose, in the
African Church, they could have done no more than was
done. "Pin him out," "put him out," was the cry. "You
had better come and (ry lo put him out. 1 defy the coward
and scoundrel who said 'put him out' to lace me here iu ilns
aisle. I daro you lo com**, you dastardly poltroon. I have
the right to speak here, and I w ill speak. 1 did vote for Cas
kie, and, under like circumstances, would do so again; and
so would ? very honest Whig." Now, the i 'hairmaii appealed
to iliem, telling Ihem how honor- d lie should fVel, if th>y
would be orderly, and closing by awarding the floor to tin*
Ca?ki<; man.
Our tall, grey friend, before mentioned, wished i?> correct
the Chair, who hail made the luij>r?.ssl?n? that the meeting
wan disorderly, anil said he wan unwilling; that ?uch ait hit
pression should go fottli to the public! He was sure that it
a few noisy boys, aud some low blackguaids, who had got
ten among them, were expelled, lite meeting would be con
ducted a? Whig meetings always have been conducted irt
(Richmond! (Quite equivocal, to nay lite least!) The Chair
promptly declared, that the meeting hud not been disorderly'
and he did not mean so to be understood! Uuery ?What
constitutes disorduif Seeing that Mr. Hughes wo til;1. i,ot |jc
put down, the meeting listened to hint for fifteen uiintiles,
and then commenced ttieir bowlings and hooting*, in the
midst ol which the motion was withdrawn, and the speaker
took his seat. The nomination of a candidate for the Mayor
alty was then postponed, and a motion hurried through, that
the meeting proceed to nominate for the other offices.
lietore any nomination could be madf, the aforesaid gallant
gentleman .tguin addressed the Chair, and soon ruistd ano
iher .tortn, by proposing that it is impossible to make Whig
nominations. As soon us lie could be heard above tin: din
and tumult, the Chairman decided, that the motion w'a9 out
of order. "Then, sir," said the speaker, "I move a recon
sideration (d the last vole," and he was proceeding to dis
cuss his motion, when the assembled owls opened their
throats- itnd Hods! what screechings! Our ears still tin
gle. Kvury man seemed to be striving with might atul main
to outdo Ida neighbor, in horrid, hideous, hateful sounds.
Mr. Daniel, Mr. Minor, Mr. Williams, the t'liairnian, the
?Secretary, and others strove to ijuiot the storm, but in vain
It raged on, like the Ocean when lashed into fury by the
maddening hurricane. Many of the more decent men has
tened ftoiti the Itouie. But the speaker rose above the stiile,
like another Neptune from euid ocean, but w ith quite a dif
ferent aspect. He was standing about midway in the church,
when a pale young man, wh* sat on the pint form near the
<'hairinau, rose and began to speak. Our friend, Mr Hughes,
rushed up to the stand, thrust thw youngster aside, like one
would a babe, and took his place, 'mid loud shouts. Tin
man, of smooth eloquence and gold spectacles, now appear
ed on the stand, and began to coax the crowd und to fing a
I ii I It* b v to Mr Hughes. He talked ol Apollo andot himself,
and by a little judicious lltltcry, lulled the stormy elements
in th>* auditory, and those which struggled lor vent in the
brcust ol the enraged speaker aforesaid. The crowd inclined
themselves to lieai, and the said enraged speaker harangued
iticm for a lew minutes, and then, in calm dignity, took a
chair by the side ol the presiding officer with the apparent
consciousness that ho was tho I.ion of the evening.
It wa? now ten o'clock, und nothing had been done to
wirds the consummation ol the objects ol the meeting. Hut
the business whs quickly done, when once they got at It.?

Truly, this is u noble faction of the two thousand Wliij/
voters of Richmond, to say nothing of tho una thousand de
mocratic voters, who are interested in the selection of Mu
nicipal officers! It will not do, gentlemen. You nre sadly
mistaken, if you suppose that die intelligent citizens ol
Richmond will be controlled and led by the none, by any
such handful of political under-streppers and wiro-wotkers.
By the way, that same hatch of democrats gave these whigs
a fit of ague, whenever tho subject was mentioned. One
speaker was sure that they would all vote for some inde
pendent candidate, and thus defeat the whig nominees; und
another was equally sure, that if several whigs contested
the various offices, these democrats would elect one of them
selves. It was evident, throughout, that the thought of de
mocracy was its distasteful to them, as holy water is said to
be to a certain gentleman in black.
