FROM OUR EVENING EDITION,
Meeting of the Citizens of (hat
UNANIMITY OF FEELING.
A mectiug of the citizens of Chatham
County was held at the Exchange this morn
ing, in response to the call published in this
city, “for the purpose of devising some prac
tical mode of ascertaining the views of the
jieople as to the speediest plan of restoring
the State to her original condition in the
Union; and to provide for the assembling ot
a convention of the whole people of Qeor
gia at some suitable time and place for that
The meeting was well attended, all the
leading citizens of Savaunah, and a large
proportion of the principal property-hoiders
of the city being present. The most influ
ential class ot citizens pf the city and county
was well represented, and the assemblage
was therefore one of no ordinary significance.
The meeting was called to order at a few
minutes past eleven o’clock by Noah .B.
Knapp, Esq., and Mayor Arnold was called
to the chair.
Th« organization of the meeting was per
fected by the choice of the following Secre
John Gammed, John J. Kelly, John R.
Mayor Arnold then addressed the meetiug in
a few well-chosen and appropriate remarks.
The Mayor alluded to the efforts made
just subsequent to the capture of the city by
the Union forces, looking toward the calling
of a State Convention. Petitions aud repre
sentations were made to that end to the
Governor and the Legislature ; the Legisla
ture met and adjourned, and no action was
taken in reference to a State Convention.
But this was not a time for crimination
and re-crimination. These were the times
for honest aud persevering effort. It was a
duty we owed to ourselves and to the city to
pat ourselves back into our former condition.
The Proclamation of Gov. Brown had some
what changed the plan proposed. But it had
not altered the views of the people. He be
lieved that there was a determination through
out Chatham to return to the Uniop, and
there could bo no objection to giving expres
sion to their sentiments in this preliminary
Col. W. S. Rockwell, rose merely to offer
a few suggestions. He alluded to the una
nimity of opinion as to Kqw the proposed
movement should be accomplished, and to
the apprehensions existing in the minds of
many that the military authorities would in
terfere. He thought that the United States
Government, both through Us military and
civil branehea, would encourage and foster
all action towards reconstruction,
The policy of the Government was
conciliation; and should we reject the
profiered right hand-of fellowship, and re
fuse the olive-branch ot peace? Should we
not receive them like men, aud not draw
back like children, afraid of the taunt of
supplication. The remarks of Col. Rockwell
were received with applause.
On motiou a committee was appointed to
dralt resolutions. The committee consisted
of the following named gentlemen :
Win. S. Rockwell, John Stoddard, Cos
Noah B. Knapp, Edward Padelford, Antho
ny Porter, Noble A. Hardee, Richard T.
Gibson, Isaac Cohen, Henry Brigham, J. G.
Mills, L. 8. "Bennett, Hiram Roberts, Geo.
The resolutions will be found in the Offi
cial Report of the meeting, which will appear
in our moia'ng edition.
The meeting adjourned, subject to the
the cali of the Chairman.
A CnARtFSTOM Graveyard. —Not very far
from Meeting Rtreet, the principal thorough
fiare, and in the centre of the old part of the
town, stands St. Philip's Episcopal Church,
one of the oldest and wealthiest in Charles
ton. About the ceDtre of the neglected
graveyard, opposite the church, rest the
bones of the lather of secession—the great
evil genius of his country—John C. Calhoun.
The tomb is a plain one, heavily slabbed
with marble, but without ornament or sculp
ture. Cut deep in the stone is the solitary
inscription, “Calhouu.” Not a half a dozen
paces away a shell has torn up the earth,
and probably chipped off a fragment of
marble waniiug on the slab—so nearly has
the war visited the grave of the Nullifier.—
Tire Prescotts, Hutchisons, Alstons, Peytons,
and other aristocratic families lie quiet in the
same. yard. The monument which records
the virtues of R. J. Turnbull, one of the
original fiie eaters, is grandiloquent. He
died iu the “meridian splendor nr his fame"
in lbC3 v and was the author of the “The
Crisis ’—an iutrepid asserter ot the rights of
Stales, whose fondest desire was “the post of
greatest difficulty and danger.” Mr. Turn
bull was aiso the author" of those famous
sentiments, “It liberty is saved, all is saved •
If liberty.is lost, ail is lost." These the epi
taph tells us “were the golden rules of Ids
life.” Wm. Johnson, a Judge of the United
States Supreme Court (obiit 1834), I3 also
buried here; likewise Col. Wm. Rhett, one
of the founders of the Rhett family, a Brit
»h officer of her Majesty's customs, who ar
iv®d at Charleston, in 1(194.
Chatham Cocktt Rlcoeds Saved. —We
learn from a gentleman arrived from the in
terior this morning, that while the .records of
the Chatham Superior, Inferior aud Ordinary
Courts were in the progress of being forward
ed to Milledgeville from Macon, they were
placed in box oars at Macon in the Central
Railroad depot. The quick advance of the
Union forces pievented the cars being taken
to Milledgeville aud they were broken opeu;
the boxes containing the books and papers
q! the courts were broken open and their con
The attention of the Hon. Philip M. Rus
sell, the representative of Chatham county,
having been called to the condition of the
records, he applied for, and was kindly fur
nished a guard to protect them. Mr. Russell
called ou Dr. Wm. H. Cuyler, one of the
Justices of the Inferior Court of Chatham
county, aud they proceeded to the headquar
ters of General Upton, who very kindly fur
nished aid and transportation. All the books
were saved, only a few] being lost..
The records are at present in a secure place
in Macon, and as soon as transportation can
be secured will be brought to the city. Gen.
Upton has the thanks of the citizens of
Chatham county for bis exertions to save the
county records which are of incalculable
value. Messrs: Cuyler and Russell are also
entitled to the thanks of their constituents
for attending to their interests abroad.
Personal. —Mr. Justice James M. Wayne,
of the Supreme Court of the United States,
arrived at his home in this city on Sunday
morning last. Justice Wayne was in fine
health when he reached Hilton Head. He
took passage on the steamer Sylph for Sa
vannah, which got aground opposite Fort
Pulaski, and for twelve hours was exposed to
the cold night air, with no accommodations for
sleeping or rest; a severe cold was thereby
contracted. We are pleased to state, how
ever, that this morning the health of our
worthy fellow-citizen is improving. Justice
Wayne is at the residence of his relative,
Hugh H. Mercer, Esq., Congress street,
south of Christ Church.
Swkaixam’s Varieties. —This popular es
tablishment will be again opened to the pub
lic to-morrow (Wednesday) 'evening. New
artists have been engaged who, although
strange to the Savannah public, are eminent
in their profession. The new scenery is fin

Important Mission to Euaope.
It Ls understood that Assistant Secretary
Harrington will soon proceed to Europe on
inportant public business. He will probably
take with him specimens of all-th<r public
securities, with a view to explain their value
as iuvestmeuts, and to instruct bankers how
to detect counterfeits.
It may be stated as a positive fact that for
the present, with the exception of the Sec
retary of the Interior, there will be no
changes whatever in the Cabinet.
Trial of Ex-Congressman Harris, pf Ma
A number of officers of the army have
been detailed to constitute a general court
martial for the trial of Hon. Benjamin G.
Harris, member of the last Congress from the
disloyal congressional district of Maryland.
Major Gen. John G.- Parke presides.
The court convened to-day. Only two
witnesses were examined. It is probable
that the testimony wiil show that Harris
has been guilty of uttering disloyal language,
but it is doubtful if the proof will sustain
the charge of open acts of disloyalty.
Amount Os United States Securities
Information lias been received from onr
consuls and from American bankers in Eu
rope that there are now in European markets
between three and four hundred millions of
the United States bonds. The large amoxint
of these securities are held by German cap
italists and by the masses of the people as
The late President's Carriages and Horsss
The carriages and horses of the lamented
President Lincoln are to be disposed of at
private sale. There are already numerous
offers for them by those who are anxious to
possess them as mementoes.
Lincoln AlGniuntnt Association in Wash"
An association has been formed here for
the purpose of erecting in this city a suitable
monument to the memory of the late Presi
dent. The following are the officers of the
association: Richard Walhch, Mayor ot
Washington, President; Crosby S. Noyes,
Secretary, and George W. liiggs, Treasurer.
It is proposed to raise for this purpose a sum
of at least one hundred thousand dollars by
subscriptions, to be limited in amount from
one to ten dollars per individual contributor.
Bucb is the general solicitude to contribute
for such purpose that it is not doubled the
amount requisite can be promptly raised and
the monument erected immediately. Per
sons throughout tbe country desiring to con
tribute are invited to send their contributions
to the Treasurer of the association.
Examination into the A flair* of the Treas
The Secretary of the Treasury has detailed
two experienced officers of the department
to aiake a thorough investigation of all the

particularly in the Printing Bureau, aud to

Tlie Sultana Disaster.
Lieutenant-Colonel Adam Badeau, of Gen.
Grant’s staff, has been sent West to make a
special investigation of the recent disaster in
the blowing up of the steamer Sultana."
Richmond Specie Recovered.
A steamer lias just been captured while
running out of the Rappahannock river. On
board of her were found several kegs of spe
cie, stolen from Richmond by the flying
Napoleon’s Proposal for au Alliance with
England against America.
The London correspondent "of the New
York Herald says:
There cau be no doubt whatever, that the
Emperor Napoleon, on receipt of the news
of the fall of Richmond, proposed to Eng
land to enter into au alliance offensive aud
defensive against the United States. That
the abovo proposition was made I know to
be and I know, from the best sources,
that the very idea of such au alliance was
repudiated instantly by the British Atubassa*
dor at Paris, acting uuder instructions from
bis government. I send you the account of
it which appears in the official organ of Lord
Palmerston, of yesterday’s el ite, from which
you will see the general* feeling of both the
British Ministry, and of a very influential
portion of the people whom this paper
Paris (April 19; correspondence of the London Herald.
I must also note, as a sign of the times, a
rumor that the French Government has made
overtures to our Cabinet lor a joint action in
the event of the attitude of the Yankees re
specting Canada or Mexico rendering an
“energetic course” advisable. A second
iron-clad squadron is to be formed in the
channel within the next two months, so that|
any “diplomatic remonstrances” the two
countries- might deem it advisable to offer
could be supported by such a force as would
insure tlielr being attended to.
]From the Liverpool Times, April 22.)
We have no faith in the statement of a
treaty between England and France, to come
into play in the event of the Americans
attacking either Mexico and Canada.
The News of the Fall of Richmond in
Germany—lmmediate Advance iu the
Value of American Bonds.
[From the London Times (city article; April 22. J
The advices from Frankfort mention that
just before the receipt of the news from
Richmond, American bonds were very dull
at 62, or five per cent below New York
prices, whence they instantly went to 65 1-2,
and subsequently to 6 I J. The transactions
were extremely heavy, aud there were buy
ers even on Londou, Brussels and Berlin ac
count. The leading capitalists have availed
themselves of the opportunity large
sums, but small investors and speculators,
with less knowledge, have takeu them up.—
Money continues abundant in Frankfort.
Austrian stocks are firm, and those payable
in currency have improved, as the exchange
on Vienna has risen to 108 8-4, bein, at the
present rate of silver, only six per cent, be
low par. Still there is not much doing in
them, as the dealers on the Bourse are ab
•sorbet' in American transactions.
A reliable private letter says that among
Mr. Lincoln’s papers has been found a pack
age of letters, marked in bis own hand-writ
ing, “Assassination Letters.” While many
of them threatened his life, others warned
him of plots to take It. He seems to have
become so used to tbiugs of this sort that
neither kind made any impression upon him.

Hereafter, no private hnlldings, except such as axe
abandoned or confiscable, will be used for military or
Government purposes within this Departments lt is
believed that there are, ut all the Military Posts, suffl
clent public buildings and abandoned or confiscable
.private ones, to answer all the needs of ihe service.
The use of building* owned by loyal persons subjects
the Government to claims for rent, and thus becomes
an unjustifiable source of expense.
Each Post aud District Commander will forthwith
report to these Headquarters, all buildings used by
himsaffior-tUe officer* of hie command, with full stat<£
ments of the location and size of such buildings, the
number of rooms in each and the name of the owner
or owners, with such information as he can obtain os
