Resolved, By tKe citizens of Savannah, in
public meeting assembled, iu obedience to a
call from His Honor, the Mayor:
Ist. That we regard, with deepest pain and
sonow, as a calamity to the whole country,
the assassination of the President, and the
attempt on the life of the Secretary of State
and on the lives of members of his family.
2d. That while we should have been pained
to hear of these events, even if they had oc
curred in the Providence of God, without
human agency, we are especially and pro
foundly grieved at the manner of their oc
3d. That we sincerely trust for the honor
of human nature, that investigations may
prove these horrid acts to have been perpe
trated by a madman whose loss of reason
lias made him irresponsible for his deeds.
4th. That in case it be ascertained that
these deeds have been committed by any per
son or persons of sound mind, or that they
are the result of deliberate conspiracy, then
we regard the criminals with abhorence and
detestatiou as enemies of the South, enemies
of the North, and enemies to mankind, and
our hope is that they may meet with speedy
justice in the extreme penalty of the law.
sth. That this meeting most deeply sym
pathizes with the families of the late Presi
dent ot the United States and of the Secre
tary of State, and will unite in any further
mark of respect that may be proposed.
6tli. That a copy of the proceedings of this
meeting be forwarded to the families of the
late President Lincoln and to Mr, Seward.

e indebted to Mr. John Stark, who
reaclieA Hilton Head this evening, for
some additional details of the terri

determined to compass the death of the
political heads of the nation, by deliberate
asdissination. By whom set on, or by what
ban motives instigated, we do not dare at
present to even conjecture.

NESDAY EVENING, APRII IQtH.
Wiikreas, The news has been received by
a iorror-stricken country, that the President
ofthe United State* has become the victim
ofa base and prenne.’ftated assassination, per
perated at the Naional Capital, whilst sur
sovnded by bis fmily and friends; And
wkreas, it is befittlig that public expression
should be given reative to this dreadful and
mosi momentous went in our history as a
people, therefore,by the soldiers and citi
zens now resident ,t Hilton Head, S. C., in
general meeting at,embled, be it
Resolved, That A the death ol Abraham
Lincoln, our reverd and distinguished chief
ruler the one, w to , in such a signal man
ner has been raisei U p by Providence to lead
us through the mttatious of a bloody civil
condiqt of unparaleied magnitude, involving
all that is dear in tie way of government and
humanity, we rectgni ze the fact that, as re
gards profound visdom, strict integrity,
purity of character pro p e r appreciation of
the great isßne at Hake, and management of
affairs pertaining t 0 the gener al welfare; ele

Resolved, That in justice to humanity, in
justice to all those noble feelings which ac
tuate the conduct of individuals, we cannot
believe the Southern people as a body can
approve for a moment, the crime, which, if
endorsed, should subject them to a retribu
tion at the hands of the conquerers, wherein
their habitations would be laid waste, and
their names be known of men no more.
Resolved, That for the sake of generous
Christian Government, the recent exhibi
tions of magnanimity towards the masses of
a subdued people should not be repressed,
because of the ill-advised acts of a few Irre
sponsible and wicked men, and that unre
strained vengeance would in no way be con
sistent with our national character, bnt only
an unwise assumption of prerogative be
longing exclusively to that Great Being wl o
coutrols us all, and who holds U 9 as in the
hollow of His hand.
Resolved, That we extend our profound
sympathy to the family of the late President,
with the earnest prayer that God in his infinite
mercy may be with the widow, and the
fatherless, and vouchsafe to them the bless
ing of bowing submissively, in common with
the nation at large, to this inscrutable event,
which clothed the land with mourning,
throughout all its borders.
Resolved, That, as a testimonial of our
abiding grief, we wear a badge of crape
upon our left arm for thirty days.
