In pursuance to the call published in hand-bills, on tho 2.7th, it largo and enthu siastic crowd of citiKons and soldiers ns sosnbled In the Court Room, on tho night of the 28th ult., for the purpose of making arrangements for the coiobration of the coming Fourth of July. The meeting was orgiinizod by tho appointment of Joseph Nopbler, Esq., as President und R. W. Knickerbocker and Lieut. Chas, tt. Shanks, as Secretaries. The object of tho moetirig was explained by Judge R. T. Posey, in an eloquent and stirring sjieech which was enthusiastically received. He desired that tbexotning an niversary be celebrated as oi old, when Maine and Louisiana gloried in it together and when one people from the Lukes to tho Quit'claimed it as thoir own. Lot by gones bo bygones and let the past four yours of civil war be looked buck upon as only a nightmare that had benumbed thee» hallowed associations, not cutiroly obliterated thetri. Tho policy of the J'"od eral (lovernment bad been that of concilia tion, the policy of the Federal Command ers baa always been that of conciliation, and iho policy of the gallant old hero who command» this Post, now, is that of con ciliation. He called on tho citizens to re sponl nobly to tho call for a celebration aud itade a motion which was carriod by acclimation, that, a committee of an equal nunper of citizens and soldiers be ap noinod to make a programme of tho cele oratbD und carry all arrangements into efle«._ Wiile the Secretaries wcro appointing the sommittee, Capt.

Mi Knickerbocker, being called, rose ! and ddressed the meoting. He was glad to hive an opportunity to utter his senti inons, and to celebrato the anniversary of his lation's birth once more. For four longueurs lie and many others in tho Sun uy buth had beon debarred tho co voted privicgo of celebrating that day by the opertions of war. Ile was glad to boo tho îen of both armies aud citizens from whahvas no longer both sections but one comion country, all desirous of enjoying togeter the remembrance» of that glori ous oliday. He did not doubt bnt that tho clobration here would be universal and nanimotis, as it should be all over the eu ntry. Priate G. W. Regan, 118th Illinois, being called for appeared and made a gloWtg speech. Hereafter, he said, the quesbn would be—not whether a man worn blue coat or a gray jacket in the lato car, but whether he was willing to rallyvith his brothers round a common stanord and uphold tho integrity of a comion nation. Ile expected confidently to se the citizens take hold of tho propos ed oiebration, and hand in hand with the solcLrs drown all past differences in a gran jubilee next Tuesday.

TRI -WEEKLY GAZETTE AND COMET. Time was When this old and woll-ltnown journal catered daily for the edification and entortaiumont, of its host* of readers and patrons. But, times cbange and things change with them. The advent of War, followed, alas ! by so many sad an$| startling changes in tho condition and pursuits of the Southern people, reudered it necessary to drop tho daily publication and assume instead usimplo weekly issue. The Wur terminating, and tho dawn of a more quiet and prosperous future appear ing, afford now encouraging earnest of a gradual though sure return to the arts and pursuits of peace, on the part of our people. Embracing the occasion, therefore, to fall in and keep pace with the steady pro gress towards a brighter condition in tho affairs of our common country, the under signed Jiave formed a mutual association for tho jnirposo of carrying on the nows paper, job printing and bindery business of the Üazette and OmiH Dating from to-day, the Gazette and C">ne,l emerges from a weekly to a tri weekly journal. To meet tho enlarged erpenses consequent upon this alteration, we confidently rely upon a generous in crease of patronage. This we shall strive to merit by the labor and attention which wo intend devoting to the several depart ments of business wo have undertaken mutually to conduct, comprising as above stated, the newspaper aud job ofhccs and bindery.

Subscriptions will be taken at the rate of one dollar each per month, al ways payable in advance, but no subscrip tion received for a less period than three months.

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows .—In view of the fact that, owing to causes which no longer pre vail, several jurisdictions subordinate to the Right Worthy Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows of the United States, have, during the past four years, been unrepresented in the Parent Body: and of the further fact that some dif ficultv is supposed to exist as to the "*» •«■* • manner or returning Representative» to the Grand Lodge of the .

List of Southern Petition h us for Pardon.— The President'* Views Thereon—Ben. Wood wants to Explain. —The N". Y". Times' Washington special of the 16th says the following list comprises the names of noted persons whose petitions foi pardon were filed with the President to-day: Brig. Gen. W. C. Wick ham, R. M. T. H im ter, Post. Master Gen. Reagan, Maj. Gen. Wm. Ma hone, Maj; Gen. Pickett, Maj. Gen. Echols, Brig. Gen. Basil I hike, Gen. IT. II. Quarries, Gen. M. J. Wright, Gen. J. P. Kershaw, Gen. H. R. Jackson, Gen. Wm. H. Peck, W. W. Boyce, of South Carolina, ex-member of Congress and late of the Provis ional Congress of the Southern Con federacy, Wm, T. Avery, ex-mem ber of Congress from Tennessee, Brig. Gen. Joseph R. Anderson, Brig. Gen. W. J. Cobdell, Brig. Gen. R. L. Page. There were thirty-four warrants for pardon issued by the Secretary of this State. All these parties were citizens of North Carolina and none of them are persons of note. These pardons were granted upon the sug gestions of Gov. Holden. The President gives audience to persons in humble position in tho matter of hearing petitions for par don, and he has determined to hold under advisement for the present all applications from men of distinction. Tho President has likewise de cided that petitions for pardon shall he referred specially to the Govern ors of the several States in which the applicants reside, so that the best evidence can be obtained as to the merits or demerits of the petitioners, and also that the Governors in each case recommend such action as to them may seem just and proper. It is stated that Ben. Wood has telegraphed to the authorities here his desire to testify before the Mili tary Commission concerning the 5,000 draft sent to hitn by Jacob Thompson. He claims, l understand, that it was given to him to be used in spec ulating in gold for a friend of Thomp D . son's, and says that he so used it It is not known whether his request will be granted or not.

Clarion of the 11th of May publishes the fol lowing remarks made by Bishop Paine, of tho Methodist Episcopal Church South, to his congregation at Aberdeen, a few days previously r We hare passed through lour yearB of fierce and bloody war. It is over. The decision has been made by tho military authorities, and, I presume I might add, with tho advice of the civil authorities also ; for, doubtless, they have con curred with the military, though not formally and in their official capaci ties. Our troops have been surren dered, and will all soon be paroled. Our armies exist as such no longer. The whole country east of the Missis sippi river now resumes its place in the Union. What, then, is the proper course to be pursued by citizens ? His own conviction on this subject was clear and decided. It is, that we should calmly, quietly and unani mously resume our former position as peaceful citizens, and in good faith enter as such upon the performance of our duties. Our country has cer tainly suffered enough in all that is dear to us. Thousands of precious lives have been lost and millions of property destroyed ; but let us hence forth turn our thoughts and efforts to the pursuits of life which aro neces sary and useful. The poor, afflicted and bereaved must be cared for. The education of our children must be provided for. The tendency to demoralization, that invariable con comitant. of war, must be arrested, anil law, order aud fidelity to every social, civil and religious duty must be encouraged and sustained by us. Let all the soldiers heed tho advice and follow the example of their lead ers, who have given up the struggle. Let them receive the parole agreed upon, and in good faith lay aside their arms, return to their families and friends, and become peaceful citizens Let. them not yield to tho temptations to carry on guerrilla warfare, which we have ever re garded as wrong in principle. Such a warfare, moreover, would result iu no good, but bring great and con tinued distress upon the country, and utterly ruin those engaged in it. Finally, having always disapproved of using the pulpit to discuss political questions, iu which angry passions are sought to be aroused, he sol emnly and deliberately advised hia countrymen on the east side of tho Mississippi river—and if his voice could be heard, he would thus speak to those on the west side also—to resume in good faith their former po sitions as law-abiding and useful citizens. "And, in closing my re marks," said Bishop Paine, "I can with more propriety address my brethren iu the ministry who are present, and say to them that I re spectfully and earnestly advise them all to use their influence, both pub licly and privately, for tho promo tion of peace and quietness among all classes, and especially among tho ministers and members of the Meth odist Episcopal Church South." These sentiments of the Bishop commend themselves to the ap proval of aH dispassionate, thinking men, and as such we give them to our readers.
