THOS. B. WADE, President. / ' Geo. H. Campbell, Sec’y. S THE WEDNESDAY NIGHT MEETING. We had intended to make some remarks on the impolicy of the meeting on Wednes day evjping last, but the following lines convey our sentiments so happily, that we cheerfully give them a place ; Dear Sir—-The meeting of last night, Productive of so much delight, To those who went to see and hear A scene so ludicrous and queer, Has puzzled me, and many more. Who mu to bear it, by tbe score. What was tbe object or intention That brought together that convention. Or why the town played such a caper. You’ll please explain it in your paper. I understand that a Ghilcno. Not philosophic quite as Zeno, Had, in a row for lovely woman. Reduced a man from man to no man ; And, after shrewd investigation Concerning that assassination. The Judges—who know what to do— Sent him, with Mr. Donahu, To say his prayers and wait his trial. Till they uncork the seventh vial. Now I inquire, without bluster. What caused last evening’s foolish muster ? Is it because we sometimes sink Where there is gold, we hope or think. And find ourselves deceived so often. That some think disappointments soften The mind, till every new impression Sinks deeper in it by progression ? Te-all and each who called this meeting, I send my compliments thus greeting ; Requesting them, when next they summon A crowd to hang a man or woman. To have the victim on the altar. And swinging from a bough the halter; Nor more bring crowds to jeer and scoff At hanging culprits six miles off. ANU9EMENTS. GRAND CONCERT AT THB MOKELUMNE EXCHANGE.
