Pursuant to a call, there waa a big meeting of the voung men rf the Third Ward laat night at Temperance Hall for the purpose of forming a volunteer military organization for the preservation of law and oraer In thla city In view of the tbreata of mob Invasion The room was packed, jammed, and the enthusiasm and excitement up to fever { beat Had the Richmond Enautrer man been prearnt the fact would probably have Inked through his hair at an early stage of the proceed- | inns that his " Minute Men" are not wanted In i Washington, and will be likely to meet with a warm reception abould they poke their noses across the Long Bridge. Mr Geor<re Cochrane, a venerable gray-headed citizen was called to the chair : Mr H B Curtis waa made vice president, and W. B. Williams, ita , secretary. Mr. Cochrane, in taking the chair, said they were met to art for the good of the city without regard to political or sectional feeling. He had fought the battles of his country in 1813, and. said he, turning to the l?rge American flag that draped th? rear of the platform, "I feel strongly Inclined to those stars and stripes." (Great cheering ) He bad been under them in every part of the world and trusted that he should not live to see them fill (Cheers ) Cries for " Carrington !" ' Carrington !" and that gentleman came forward. Major Carrington said that the crisis was now upon us. and It was the duty of every brave and ^ood citizen to meet it with firmness [Cheers ] They were aware that threats have b?ren made that our beautiful city shall be Invaded on the 4th of March ne*t by a mob. For one. he was prepared to say that he would resist such an attempt at the peril of his life. [Cheers upon cheers, yells, "tigers," and cries of "good," - good "] Threats had been made that the President elect should never be inaugurated in this city, [ iu old man in shrill treble, " Yes he shall I ''J It bis been stated that Chief Justire Taney?old and feeble as he is, with one foot in the grave? has been heard to say that he intended to discharge bis duty and administer the oath of cilice to the President elect if he had to go to Springflrld to do it [Cheers] Let us imitate his patriotic example and do our duty [A voice? "We'll do that!"] Let us see that Lincoln is inaugurated, like bis predecessors, uu tbe east front of the Capitol Any attempt to resist h<s inauguration would be rnrt by 5,uw> voung Washington ians who were ready to shed their "blood to that end [Vociferous cheers ] Shall it be said that the (>eople of the United States are afraid to inaugurate their President ? Shall one little State, or hfteen States even, deny the United States this high and important privilege ' The period had arrived when every brave and good uian ?f tbe republic should appear in undisguised colors. As for himself, he was for the Union, the Constitution. and the faithful execution of tbe laws. He knew "oo North, no Sou:h, no East, no West," and recognized no distinction between tbe people North and South. They were equally brave and patriotic [Cheers ] He was born on the soil of the Old Dominion, auu urr n? a ?uu iurm vuc uiumcr wuo uurc him Therefore he bad addressed the people of tnat State at various points lately, urging them to remain true to the Union He believed they would. Bat, whatever others might do. he could fl^ht under no ting but the Star-spangled Banner. (" Bully." ' Good."] * Madness rules tbe coar." Men have been heard to curse our Union; have been seen to tear down the Starspangled Banner and trample It In the dust Men have been heard to threaten to invade this beautiful city, founded by the Father cf his country, and containing tbe archives of Government He hid heretofore preached peace; but now he felt bis Anglo-Saxon blood boil In his veins, and be was ready to strike in defense of our Government and flag. [Cheers ] Proceeding in the same animated vein, he said It was aot his purpose to interfere with any arrangement of the District militia, but to strengthen it. He proposed to raise a volunteer company in each ward?seven in all?to form a regiment, to be called the " Union Regiment of Washington," which shall constitute a part of oar military force in tbe District of Columbia, as do the other volunteer military companies of tbe city. We would then have a trained band of 5,UU0 men In the District, more reliable than three times that number or raw militia. [" Bollv," *' Tkit'l M."| Give him 5 000 young Washlngtonians, let him drill them for a month, and he would pledge himself to whip 15.MU raw militia, come from what quarter they would, even were they composed of the loudest Sre-eateri that ever atrutted or bellowed [Tempestuous applause] The people of Washington took no part la politics, and held the even tenor of their way, but were prepared to light In defenae of their families, home, country and honor. He then read the following resolutions : \V hereas threats have been made that the President elect shall not be inaugurated in Washington tlly, and we have reason, therefore, to apprehend tuat, on the 4th of March next, our beloved home may be made thescene of riot, violence, and blood; and whereas we, the young men of the Third Ward of Washington, believe that the honor of the nation and our city demand that the President elect should be inaugurated in the National Metropolis, and are determined not to desert the post of danger sad duty, but to maintain our ground and defend our koines our country, our rights, and our honor, at tLc peril of our Uvea : Therefore, 1. Kttolvtd, That we, whosr names arc hereto subscribed, do constitute a volunteer military company, for the purpose of preserving law and order in our midst, and protecting our families and oar friends against Injury and insult by revolutionary and lawless mobs, and that we unite with similar companies that may be organized in tbe otber ward* or our city, the whole forming a re_'1ineut to be know and designated as the " Union R'.ginunt of Washington'* 2 R> solved, That we proceed immediately to the rlectlon of our company officer*, the fitUl officer* to be elected by the regiment after it haa been formed as aforesaid. 3.

That we mutually pledge to each other our rtiertd honor, promptly and implicitly to obey all the lawful commands of our officers, who m i/be elected by ourselves, es af?>res<ddi and to resist to the death, whenever it maybe necesairy, any disturbance of the public peace within the District of Colombia, and every unlawful invasion of our beloved city, from what ever section of the country it may come Lawyer J G obj eted to the uniform as too tbin for the season He did'nt want to fight in his shirt tall [Laughter] Major Carringtoo said that the uniform could bt determined upon afterward. Tbr; resolutions were then adopted with an overwhelming 41 aye;" aud then commenced a lively stampede towards tbe secretary 's desk to sign the roll The crowd grew ?o dense, however, in th'.s neighborhood that another plan was hit upon, and supplementary papers were circulated through tbe room, aud were signed on the tops of hats or otber folks backa. It waa presently announced that lone M) signatures had already been received, and it was proposed to udjourn to another night to obtain additional signatures. This was liei/atived. aud the election of officers waa entered upon General James E Csrrington wai unanimously elected captain, and made bis acknowledgments la a speech of stirring eloquence, in which be aid that it would seem to be somewhat against the rales of military etiquette for a general to accept the office of captain, bat tbat in this case he had enlisted as a private, and he desired no higher or prouder title than to be their tommandrr [Applause] J as B bheiicross was then elected Pint Lieutenant; Henry B.
