Our latest advices from Hilton Head
announce that several of the large
number of conspirators arrested for being
connected with the assassination plot, have
turned State's evidence, and have deve
loped the details of the scheme.
Ahbivai. of Gen. Gillmore and Staff.-
The steamer W. W. Coit* Capt. Parker, ar
rived on Sunday afternoon from Hilton Head,
having on board the following distinguished
passengers: Major-General Q. A. Gillmore,
Commanding Department of the South;
Col. C. L. Kilburn, Chief Commissary; Capt.
H. M. Bragg, A.D.C.; Lieut-Col. M.Clymer,
Medical Director; Lieut. Taicot, A. D. C.;
Lieut. G. W. James, A. D. C.; Major Jno. C.
Gray, Judge Advocate; Major G. E. Gour
aud, Inspector-General; Capt. J. M. Gil
more, Superintendent of Telegraphs; Major
W. L. M. Burger, A. A. G.; Mrs. Bragg,
Mrs. Corner, Mr. Bragg. General Gillmore
and Staff were accompanied by the Post
Rand of Hilton Head, which played several
beautiful pieces of music as the steamer
neared the wharf.
Arrival of the Steamship Diamond with
Brio. Gen. Littlefield and Staff. —The
fine steamship Diamond, Capt. Hardy, from
Hilton Head, arrived with the invited guests
to the grand celebration of Saturday after
noon, in this city, at half-past four o'clock,
who proceeded immediately iu vehicles to
The following is the list of the Diamond’s
Brig Gen M S Littlefield, commanding the
Dep’t at Hilton Head; Lieut Col C A Rice,
Chief of Staff; Lieut S S Gregory, A A
Q M; Col Stewart L Woodford, Chief of
Staff; Gen Gilmore’s Staff, Mr Topham and
lady, Capt Geo N Morris, U S N, U S steamer
Chenango; Assistant Surgeon Geo C Reyn
olds, U S steamer Chenango ; A B Bache,
Immediately after the Diamond had landed
her passengers, she returned to Hiltou Head.
Death of Mr. James E. Hogg.—' The nu
merous friends of this gentleman will regret
to learn of his death, in Barnwell District,
South Carolina. He was in the 67th year of
his age. For the past thirty-three years oi
bis life, he resided in Savannah. He was for
many years Deacon of the Savannah Baptist
Cbureb, and Superintendent of its Sabbath
Mr. Hogg was fondly attached to the Af
rican churches of Savannah, and their pros
perity was his anxious care. The congrega
tions loved him.
The deceased leaves one son, two daugh
ters and sixteen grandchildren,and numerous
other relatives to mourn his loss.
Mr. Hogg died of cancer, which first ap
peared on the lower lip. It was operated on
successfully, as was supposed, but soon after
it appeared on his neck, and spread so rapid
ly as to cause his death in a few months.
The llkkald in Dixie.—Now that the in
terruption of communication with Richmond
cuts off the papers in the interior from
sources of information relating to the outside
world, the Confederate press make as liberal
extracts from the Savannah Hhkai.i, as they
used to do from the New York Herald. A
_ copy of an Augusta paper of the 18th, re
ceived last Thursday by Hag of truce, con
tains several columns copied from the Her
ald, including local, Northern, European,
Mexican, Hilton Head, Charleston and other
news, none of which seemed to be of a very
consoling character to the editors. The Con
federate papers appear to have discovered,
however, that the Herald is a very reliable
journal, and we feel complimented at their
liberal use ot matter from our columns and
gratified at the honorable credit they give
us. The little matter of heading one of the
articles “More of So-and-So's Lies” we
overlook, appreciating the close circum
stances which may have created the notice.
We hope ere long, when peace shall again
reign throughout the land, to exchange regu
larly with the Augusta Constitutionalist and
Chronicle & Sentinel, Macon Confederate,
Macon Register, snd Columbus Inquirer, and
all the leading papers of the State, and be on
a footing of tbe strictest courtesy with them.
Total Eclipse of the S®n.—A total eclipse
of the sun will occur to-morrow, Apiil 2r>tb,
invisible in Noith America, but visible in
most of South America and Africa.
This splendid eclipse begins off the coast
of Chili, in Longitude 21 min. 3G sec. E, of
Washington, Lat. 31 deg. 23 min. 24 sec.
9outh, and ends in Africa in Lat. 4 deg. 23
min. 36 sec. south, Long. 204 deg. 32 min. 80
sec. W. of Washington. The total eclipse
will be visible along a line running near San
tiago de Chili, through Rio Janeiro in Brazil,
and thence across the Atlantic ocean, endiug
iu Lower Central Africa.
It is needless to say that the whole scien
tific world awaits this event with great inter
est, as many important astronomical prob
lems ure to be referred to it for solution—
Several expeditions of savants left Europe

THE MEETING OF SATURDAY.
On account of the large demand for the
proceedings of the meeting on Saturday, and
because some errors occurred in the report
of the address of Mr. A. W. Stone, long a
resident of the South,and for two years since
the war residing at Atlanta, we reprint them
below. Mr. Stone presided at the great loy
al meeting held at Cooper Institute, N. Y.,'
ADDRESS OF a. W. STONK, ESQ., OF ATLANTA, GA.
Mr. President and Fellow-Citizens of the
United States: An unexpected and ter

nation. Our rejoicing is turned into
mourning, and the whole nation is “con

hand of an assassin, and we have met here
to give public expression to our feelings upon
this dreadful event. Who is equal to the

sins paraded the streets of Baltimore, thirst
ing for his blood, aided and encouraged by
the influential secessionists of that city. It
was said by the rebels all over the South that
he should never be inaugurated.
And threats against his life have ever since
been made, and the Press of the South have
even advertised and offered a reward for the
coward who would undertake the task of

I am now speaking, he was hung in effigy.
But the Providence of God preserved him,
and lor four years he successfully guided our
Ship of State amid the whirlpool ot secession
and rebellion. His honest heart and conser
vative policy, had endeared him to the peo
ple, and by their almost unanimous voice he
was called to fill a secoud term, which he
had just entered upon, and as that old Ship
of State he had so successfully guided was
just reaching the haven of peace, he Mas
cruelly snatched from the helm.
We all anxiously ask, Who shall fill his
place in the hearts ot the people and in the
administration of the affairs of this nation ?
He seemed raised up by Providence, from
the common ranks of life, to lead us through
this unnatural and bloody conflict. What
Moses was to the children of Israel, Abraham
Lincoln was to this people, and they had
learned to think of him as Hamlet of his
father—* 1 He was a man, take him for all in
jail we shall not look upon his like again.”
He had a proper appreciation of the great
issues at stake, and as the breakers of rebel
lion lashed into fury by the tempest of
secession were receding, he was the man
above all others that was looked to as able to
control the spirit of radicalism, and temper
mercy with justice to the deluded victims of
rebellion, who had been seduced and dragged
into the whirlpool of revolution, and in his
death the people of the South have lost their
best friend, and the whole people have sus
tained a loss irreparable.

bellion in seeking the destruction of those

and Strips, thereby destroyed their best

conceive aud their heads plan hellish
deeds of darkness, but did not think the iu r

such an act, and the devil resign his sceptre

twelve months ago, I fear more than one city
in the Soutli would have commemorated the

But that day has passed, and a just, libe

This diabolical assassination, but shows
the popular affection for Mr. Liucoln, aud

A just and good man, a conservative ruler,
has fallen a victim to treason; but his mem
ory will live aud shine as the stars, forever
and ever. And when a nation's gratitude
shall erect a monument to the fallen heroes
of this war. high above all other names will
be inscribed the name of Abraham Lincoln.
His mission is ended; his work is finished;
but not so with the Nation whose represen
tative he was. Its foundations are deep laid
in the will of the people, who have resolved !
that we shall be one government, one flag,
aud that flag the Stars and Stripes.
I regret that Mr. Lincoln could not have
lived to have witnessed the Jesuit of his la

The Government can afford to be as gene

been vindicated, its stricken flag resurrected
with two new stars added to its folds.
And the lustre of the promise shining on its
ample folds will be brightened by its mag

But to secure that magnanimity no indiffer
ent negative love for the government will do.
It must be earnest and sincere; and if there
are those who hate the Government, I would
advise them to seek some other country
more congenial to their own feelings.
The greatest liberty and freedom are for
this people if they do not refuse it.
And as the new and untiied Chief Magis

affairs, let him have our cordial and united
support, trustiug that he will be found equal
to the task, and that God will give him wis

Rev. S. W. Magill was also on the list of
speakers, but on account of the presence of
other orators, he declined making any ad
dress- The following is a report of the re
marks lie had prepared :
Fellow’ Loyal Citizens of the United States:
It is to me a source of high gratification
which you, I doubt not, participate in, that
here in this city of Savannah, so long and so
late false to our nationality and hostile to our
flag, we can now assemble, as upon our own
recovered and re-nationalized territory, to
make some fitting manifestation of the grief
which in common with all the loyal people
ot the land we feel, in view of the unspeak
able calamity which has befallen the nation,
in the sudden and violent death of our hon
ored and beloved Chief Magistrate, Mr. Lin
coln. I say 6ome fitting manifestation, and I
use this word emphatically and with refer
ence, for, with all the truly loyal people of
the United States, then present, my feeling
was, that the meeting held in this square a
few days since by the citizens of Savannah,
professedly with reference to the death of
Mr. Lincoln, had in its method and in its
tone, no element of fitness, considering the
magnitude, and the solemnity’, and the heart
affecting nature of the eveut, wdrich should
have given it character. Beside the very
appropriate remarks M’ith which his honor
the Mayor introduced the object of the meet
ing, there was nothing—no impressive boom
ing ot the minute gun, no solemn tolling of
the bell, no funeral drapery, no prayer of re
ligion leading to the throne of God for grace
and consolation In the hour ot our affliction—
nothing, save the hasty passage of live
meagre resolutions, but once and hardly aud
ibly read, and which fell as it were still-born
upon a seemingly uuappreciating and certain
ly an irresponsiveassembly. I refer to this mat
ter, Mr. Chairman, to vindicate the patriot
ism and the griet of the loyal citizens of the
United States, present on that occasion,
from the suspicion of beiug so superficial,
that we could be as satisfied with the man
ner in which things were conducted as be
ing iu any measure njittiut/ notice of the loss
of if nation, by the violent death of our hon
ored and beloved President.
It is for the citizens of Savannah to judge
whether they can afford to have thus misim
proved so propitious an opportunity for
winning back to themselves the sympathies
of our loyal people. But the memory of
Mr. Lincoln cau afford to do without any
more appropriate manifestation ou their
part, provided their hearts prompted nothin” -
better, lor who is there that can be named
among the conspicuous men of the age,
thro out the world, wrho has occupied so
eminent a position, who has achieved so emi
nent a work, as that which it has been grant
ed by the Ruler ot nations, to be occupied
aud to be achieved by the late Mr. Lin
Called to tbe Chief Magistracy in most
tronblous times, he brought with him the un
questioned reputation of eminent honesty
aud eminent patriotism, and he hesitated not
to avow before the nation his deep sense of
his own insutfieieney and of his need of
help which God aloue can impart—aud this
one administration and into another of un
told and bofore unimagined responsibility and
labor, he has so conducted, that step by step
and with no step backward,he has been risin ,r
in the estimation of ail unprejudiced minds
throughout our land aud throughout all civ
ilized countries. And now though he lias
fallen unexpectedly, by violence, all too
early as our grieving hearts exclaim, yet he
was permitted to see his work achieved, the
capital of the traitorous enemy of his coun
try in the hands of his victorious General—
the central army of that enemy conquered,
surrendered—his country well-nigh restored
to her pristine power and prosperity—and
himself recognised throughout the civilized
world as the honored instrument in the hand
of God, of giving Freedom to a long*enslaved
and deeply oppressed race, in the grateful
memory ot whom, tor generations to come,
his name will be enshrined, as that of their
greatest friend, their best benefactor.
Mr. Lincoln has not died before he
had accomplished as much as seems to
be the share of any one mortal. Even Mo9es
the illustrious leader, chosen by God Him
self, was not permitted to enter the Promised
Land, but Laving caught a glimpse of it, iu
its beauty and its breadth from Pisgah's lofty
top, he was called away to his reward in the
heavens. Our beloved President was per
mitted to enjoy an equally clear vision of the
growing beauty aud the widening breadth
of his rescued and regenerated country, and
we doubt not has gone to take his place
amid the jubilant rauks of those who bv
grace divine, resisting temptation and endur
ing hardship, have proved themselves true to
the cause of God and humanity.
And henceforth he lives in the mem
ory of his countrymen, both white aud
black, wearing an untarnished rep
utation, the achiever of a most consummate
triumph, having done, and well done, the
work His Divine Master had given him to do
“He dies, but HIS WORK lives.” Fel

The Post Band from Hilton Head play
ed last evening on Johnson Square, in front
ol the Pulaski House, to a large assemblage
of soldiers and cititizens of Savannah, from
eight o’clock till half-past nine. In the crowd
which assembled to hear them, not oue failed
to speak iu a complimentary way of the per
formance, although it was an improvised one
with no rehearsal or preparation, but simply
an ordinary exhibition, given immediately
ou the request ot several citizens and offic
ers. We know the merits of thb band, from
long acquaintance, and we know that if,
while they remain here, they could be in
duced to give a more public exhibition with
a notice to the people sufficiently in advance,
in the daily papers of the city, it would af
ford a rare treat to thousands.
This band was first organized in February,
1803, under the auspices of Brig. Gen. (now
Major General) A. H. Terry, then command
ing the Post at Hilton Head, and the brigade
stationed there. Mr. G. W. Ingalls, of Con
cord, N. H., who had been leader of the
fine band of the 3d New Hampshire Regi
ment, mustered out under a law of Congress
discontinuing regimental bands, was elected
to take charge of the organization of the Post
Band, and has since devoted much time and
used every exertion to make this organiza
tion creditable to the members and to the
Post. In July, 1864, the Post Baud
was temporal ily disorganized in
accordance with an economical
policy put in force in the District,
but it was shortly alter reorganized by Mr.
Ingalls, on as good a footing as before. Niue
of the original members now remain, and
there are seven new perfoimers. The band
is composed as follows :
G W Ingalls, Band Master.
F H Pike, Drum Major.
P Parkhurst, Clarionet.
W S Russell, E flat Cornet and Violin.
L M Currier, Solo B Cornet.
C C Currier, second B Cornet.
H Stark, Solo Alto and Horn.
A Aspinwall, first Alto and Violin.
David Thompson, second Alto and Horn.
J C Lane, first B Tenor.
Frederick Hoffman, second B Tenor and
leader of Orchestra.
G W Boody, Solo Baritone and Trombone.
J O Davis, E Bass and Double Bass.
G C Perkins. E Bass.
N M Gove, Small Drum.
A L Lane, Large Drum.
F D Batchelder, Cymbals.
It will be seen that the band comprises a
good orchestra as well as brass band.
The following is a list of the pieces per
formed last evening:
1. Teutonia Quick Step.
2. “Peace to the Memory of the Brave,”
3. Melange sur “Semiramide.”
