PROCESSION OP COLORED CHILDREN
OVER A MILE IN LENGTH.
The ceremonies of raising tbe old flag at
Sumter on Friday were followed the next
day by events equally as memorable in
Charleston. There was a tremendous out
pouring of the Freedmeu of that city, two
immense meetings beiug held at Zion’s Church
and another at Citadel Square iu the open
pair. It is estimated that at each of these
meetings there were present iu the aggre
gate over TGOo pefsons once held iu bondage,
but now free. The wildest enthusiasm pre
vailed. Not one present could restrain the j
emotions experienced at the allusions made j
by the speakers to tile downfall of the rebel- j
lion, the flig, President Lincoln and his j
emancipation proclamation, giving vent to
such exclamations as “Bress uncle Abe," j
The meeting at Zion’s Church was pre
sided over by Major Delany, a colored officer
of the U. S. Army, until he was called to
fulfil the same functions at the Citadel Square
meeting, when he was succeeded by James
Redpath, Esq., Superintendent of Public
Hon. Henry Wilson, U. S. Senator from
Massachusetts, was happily introduced to the
audience amidst rouring cheers by Mr. Lloyd
Garrison, Esq., of the same State, the emin
ent anti-slavery champion, who took occa
sion to speak of Mr. Wilson’s distinguished
services for the past quarter of a century in
the antigkvery cause, and of his humble
origin, strong that the noble man who was
about to address them sprang from humble
origin being one of those “mud sills of so
ciety” that Sou*hem chivalry took such de
light to reprobate and malign. Mr. Wilson
was formerly a mechanic, and had attained
his present position solely by his own efforts.
Those present were reminded that it was in
their power to acquire position and reputa
tion now that were free and gain as proud a
distinction as any of their white friends.
Mr. Wilson in commencing his remarks,
stated that it was themoudcst day of his life
to stand there on the of South Carolina,
the home of the rebellion, on a platform with
the great anti-slavery leader of the country
William Lloyd Garrison and before the freed
men of our country. For twenty-five years
he had spoken against slavery, and against
every man who had Standing
hereon the soil of South Carolina he felt that
the slave power he had fought so long was
under his heel. You have no master now.
You have no master but Almighty God.
Slavery is written no longer on your
foreheads. Abraham Lincoln is Presi
dent of the United States, with
twenty-five millions of freemen by his side
and seven millions of bayonets behind him,
has decreed that the men and women of
South Carolina can never more be slaves.
The men who have robbed your cradles, sold
your children, separated husband and wife,
sjpll do it no longer. Let them understand
it. Here, to-day, I proclaim it. I want the
proud and haughty chivalry that X have met
so of tea in the United States Congress to
hear it and understand it—that the black
men and women of South Carolina are free,
and mote too. He wanted them to walk
proud and erect, with a consciousness that
they were free, and had the bayonets of the
government to back them.
Mr. Wilson spoke of their loyalty to the
government. During these four years of
bloody war they had always been devoted to
the old flag. They had never betrayed their
country. You have guided the Union sol
dier in his efforts to escape from rebel con
trol, and afforded every protection in your
power to extend him. You saw’ the old flag
go down four years ago; yesterday you saw
it go up. You know what the old flag means.
It means liberty. You havfebeen patriotic.
You have endured all. Trie long, dreary,
chilly nights of slavery .have passed away
forever, and the sun of liberty casts its bright
beams on you to-day.
The speaker then dwelt upon the great
duty that was incumbent upon them. He
wanted them to educate their children. They
must be industrious. Freedom don't mean
you mustn't work. Liberty means that you
must be industrious, improving your condi
tion and educating your children. Be kind
and courteous to all, black and white
Cringe and bow the knee to no man. Let
those who brought aboyt thiß revolution un
derstand this. Let the world know that you
are fit for freedom.
Mr. Wilson in closing dwelt upon the im
portance and necessity of their preparing
themselves for the future, to use the ballot,
and asking them in the name of their friends
in the country, to show their former masters
that it was a sin against God, and a crime
against them, to bold them in slavery.
The honorable gentleman’s remarks, of
| which we' Jiave given but a biief synopsis,
were eloquent 1/ delivered, and listened to
with the profoundest attention. He was fre
quently interrupted with rapturous applause.
When he Concluded, cheers were given for
Gen. Saxton, Rev. Dr. Leavitt, Mr. Garrison,
good old father Abraham, Bnd Hon. Wm. P.
Kelley of Philadelphia. The latter gentle
man was next introduced and spoke sub
stantially as follow s:
Mr. Kelley said that in answering the call,
Pennsylvania was the first State to* abolish
slavery within its own limits, but forgot its
duty, through corrupt politicians, to betray
its country through James Buchanan to sla
v«y. But he would not refer to the past.
God knows yon understand it too well. It
is written in your hearts. We would turn to
the hopeful future.
lie was not here to flatter, though he
might entertain them with a recital of their
! glowing deeds the past four years.
Though you have no master, yet you have
a Master in the Gieat Beiug of us all. Obey
His laws. President Lincoln, tbe Moses of
this nation, he is your master. Obey his
Labor is tbe lot of all, and your friends at
the North appeal to you to-day to work with
us; and we want you to do it in South Car
olina. Work to make wages, and lay them
up. Work on the plantation, in the work
shop. Work so. that on Monday your work
will be better than it was on Saturday. We
white boys don’t care much about being born
to poverty. We run a race with the young
man born to riches. We try to beat him in
the accumulation ol wealth. The humble
individual who addresses you, after he was
eleven years of age was forced to get his
living and his education.
He loved woman; there were many before
him. His mother was a woman (laughter);
so was his wife (renewed laughter). It was
the duly of mothers and fathers to make
home happy. See to it that the good man
provides everything that is comfortable. See
to it that the children are educated. Send
them to the common schools, and when they
are prepared and you get ready send them to
the universities, which will be ready, to re
The speaker adverted incidentally to their
gallantry at Wagner, Oluskee, and to the ad
\ enture of Capt. Robert Small, who escaped
with the steamer Planter.
Now, that they were fellow-citizens, he
spoke of an important duty. An effort will
be made by such men as Vallandigham and
Wood at the North to unite the Confederate
debt, which amounts to thousands of mil
lions, with the United States debt, embracing
both debts in one. This must not be. Men
must be sent to Congress to prevent it. See
to it, therefore, that in your new State Con
stitution man’s suffrage goes with his stature
Impressing on them the necessity of labor
he concluded his remarks.
“Roll Jordan, Roll,’’and “Blow the Trum
pet,” were then sung with thrilling effect.
George Thompson, of England, was then
felicitously introduced by Mr. Garrison, who
gave a short account of his anti-slavery
efforts in the liberation of the slaves of the
West India Islands and of his labors as an
advocate of universal negro emancipation,
Which drew forth rounds of applause.
Mr. Thompson remarked, in opening, that
it was a great-day for him. You are joyful,
so am I. Your cup is running over, so is
mine. This is a jubilee, an occasion on
which God, holy angels, in “the spirits of
just men made perfect,” looks upon with ap
proval. It is hard to think that lam in the
cradle of secession and slavery, where yes
terday you were things, to-day men and
women. He was a co-laborer with Wilber
force and Clarkson in the liberation of tbe
slave, and with his beloved friend, Mr. Gar
rison, who was the Wilberforce of America,
he had been engaged for thirty years.
The speaker spoke hopefully of their fu-
lure. But while their bodies were free, their
souls free, they must also be clothed with
the privileges of citizenship. The right pf
suffrage is one of the principles upon which
this country rests. Look to it that you not
only become your own owners, but that you
have the right to exercise the prerogative of
Mr. Thompson's remarks were continued
at some length; speaking .in his usual im
passioned style, when he was followed by
Theodore Tilton, *Esq., one of the editors of
the New York Independent, in a speech of
great elegance and power. During his re
marks, Mr. Tilton, in answer to an inquiry
made by him, proved that seven-eighths of
the number present had been born slaves.
Before the meeting dissolved a vote was
taken, when it wa3 decided that a message
be sent to the Anti-Slavery Society of Mas
sachusetts of which Mr. Garrison is Presi
dent, to hold their next annual convention
in Charleston, on the Fourth day of July
next, and that Wendell Phillips be invited
to deliver the oration. Frederick Douglas,
the colored orator at the North was also in
vited to be present.
The meeting at Citadel Square was ably
and eloquently addressed by Hon. Henry
Wilson, Hon. Joseph Hoxie, and Kev. Dr.
Leavitt, of New York, and Judge Kellogg,
During the afternoon a procession of col
ored children, over half a mile in length,
marching by twos, under the direction of
Gen. Saxton, marched through the principal
streets, singing, “John Brown's Soul is

THE RE 'ASSEMBLING OP THE VIRGINIA LEGIS
The following extracts are from the Rich
mond Whig, of Friday, forwarded bv
your correspondent in the late rebel
An *. Q f° rma l meeting of the members of the
Virginia Legislature remaining in the city
was held in the Law Building, Franklin
street, this morning, for tbe consideration of
tbe proposition of President Lincoln to re
assemble tbe Legislature for the purpose of
authorizing a convention to take Virginia
back into tbe Union. Tbe propositions of
tbe President were laid before the meeting.
A formal meeting was appointed to take
place at 4 o’clock this afternoon, to which
hour the meeting adjourned.
Tbe Virginia Legislature adjourned on the
18th of March, to meet on tbe 29th of that
month. They met on the 29th without a
quorum. According to the constitution, they
could under such circumstances adjourn from
day to day This they did till Suuday last,
the day of the evacuation, when they held a
meeting in the evening and dispersed without
resolution, some goiugoff with the Governor,
and some leaving on a canal beat chartered
for the purpose. According to law, the
members now in the city are the only re
maining legal representatives of the State of
It is important to state that the Legislature
of 1865 is authorized by the constitution to
call a convention for tbe purpose of settling
and adjusting the basis of representation.—
This question is settled, but a convention
called for any purpose is omnipotent.
UNION MEN RETURNING.
A great many men whom the tyrannical
rebel conscription has for three years driven
from the face of day and forced* to hide and
skulk like felons, assured by the presence of
the Union forces and the Star Spangled Ban
ner have ventured once more to show* them
selves among their fellows.
For the first time during the war, the city
may truly be said to be quiet and life and
property safe. Not a noise more uncouth
than the Bound of military bands and army
wagons disturbs the ear of day or night.
The garroters and burglars that "infested
the rebel capital have either knocked the
dust of the city from their feet and followed
the Confederate flag, or they have prudence
enough to forego the practice of their ne
The Petersburgh Railroad is unbroken in
both track and Ded, except in one or two
places, ail the distance from that city to
Richmond. Trains are now running on the
road, and the welcome whistle of tbe loco
motive is heard again, the wake of the Un
ion army in things political, as well as things
material. A strong force of laborers is to be
at once set at work on tbe broken points of
tbe Richmond, Fredericksburg, Aquia Creek
and Potomac railioad, and its completion,
which will occur within the next few weeks,
will put Richmond in rail communication
with the Capitol of the United States again.
The iron bands, broken by the ruthless hand
of war, welded again, will once more re
unite a divided people in bands too strong to
be put assunder.

Grant and Lee. —We give below three other
notes which passed between Grant and Lee
in reference to the surrender of Lee’s army.

brief history of the entire arrangement:

the subject of peace, the meeting proposed
for ten a. m. to-day could lead to no good.
I will state, however, General, that I am
equally anxious for peace with yourself, and
the whole North entertain the same feeling.
The terms upon which peace can be had are
well understood. By the South laying down
their armß they will hasten that most desira

Secretary Seward.— We regret to learn
that the accident to Mr. Sewara was quite as
serious as was at first reported, and that his
condition is still somewhat critical. His arm
was broken near the shoulder-joint, and his
lower jaw was also broken. He suffers a
great deal of pain from both, and although
the symptoms, in the judgment of his sur
geon, are favorable, the critical point has not
yet passed. At this important juncture in
the affairs of the nation, the country will
regret the loss of his judicious and natiotic
