Tbe secretary read the journal, and Mr Kriy zanowski requested that that part of tbe same which relaUd to what he had said at the last meeting about tbe contingent withdrawal of the German republicans from this Association be cor rected so as to confor n to the correct report of tbe siid remarks as published In the Evening Star; carried. Several new members were added to tbe long llat in thr hlvk hook The question first taken up after the conclusion of tbe above preliminaries wai ite motion made by Mr C. Wood at tbe last meeting of bla inten tion to stibm't an amendment to tbe constitution which should exclude the officers of tbis Associa tion from serving as members of tbe executive committee Mr. Wood wanted, before any action was taken upon this amendment, to make a personal expla nation. He wanted to say to this Association that the report which appeared in the Republican and In the Star of what be bad said and done at tbe Herman republican meeting on last Tuesday night was false and infamons in everv particular He never said or lu.plied in anything that he said or did at that meeting, a thing that he had thus tieen reported to have sijd and done He wished to make this statement, and be called upon bis Herman friends here who were present there to state whether he spoke the truth. Mr. Kzyianowski would explain. He desired t<> siv that be concurred in every word that Mr. W?K>d had just said. The statements alluded to were filse in every particular, and be stood here ready to maintain that, not with words alone, but with the sword is necessary. [Sensation.] The party who bad written that account had made iron ical charges and allusions to himself because be (the speaker) was of Sclavonic race. The speaktr w;is proud of his Sclavonic origin. He knew the man who had written that account. He had been went to that meeting by certain Instigator*. He had thought to get the speaker out of his position !n the German association, and had attempted to carry his object by lmpnting false motives and feeling to the American people. The sneaker be lieved that the heart of every American beats warmly for ev?-ry adopted citizen. The man who wrote that ren?-rt is named Clusa He is a tall German, with Dig spectacle#. He came there and read a long piece in German. He,in that commu nidation denounced this association as a set of Know Nothings, except the officers [Cheers, and cries of " go it "] There was no reporter of an American paper present. Mr. Hiitou hoped this sort of discussion would cease. It seemed that when Greek meets Greek then cbmes the tur of war?and when Dutch meets Dutch, then comes the lager beer. [Laughter and aueers ] Mr K hoped he would be permitted to go on. Me would respectfully suggest to the last speaker, that if he thought the principles of the Dutch had Anything to do with lager beer, he was very much niistakeu. He did not know how it was w ith the gentieiu&n himself.

The meeting was a much larger one than Lis report would make it. VV hen he (Cluaa) read hia long paper, the speaker aaw that be wanted to git hint out of the Association and the place he occupied.

The chair asked Mr W to put his amendment In writing, ?o that the association might know upon what they were voting Mr Wood.?I'll write it in a minute [Mr. Wood had called the previous question on his amendment ] While at tnedesk writing the amendment? Mr. Wiikins desired to know why Mr. Wood had called the previous question. Was it bit purpose to choke ott' debate. If so, be should a) od> e move to lay the whole subject on the tabl? fCrtet of "I'll second it;" '-Order! order." Mr. Wood ?1*11 answer the gentleman directly Mr. Wood's proposition having been submitted to the chair, was read. Several voices moved to lay it on the table Mr. Wood would new state why he had called the previous question. His object bad been to place the amendment in such a position that a vote might be had upon it That it might be kept from the table till be had secured a vote upon it. Mr. Wiikins moved to lay the whole matter on the table [Voices?"I second the motion."] Mr Wood said be would like to vote upon this amendment. He. for one, wanted to discuss it, and he would willingly withdraw the previous question if he could secure a fair discussion upon ft. Mr. Wilkias.?I move to lay the whole matter on the table. A. voice ?Read the amendment to that we can know what it ia. The Chair did ao. The question was then taken on the motion to lay on ttable, aud the Chair was unable to de cide. Voices.?Division! Tellers! Tellers' Divide: Ayes and noes! Mr. Jus. E Hurch said be had no wish to dis cuss this question, but there ought to be a fair Yotr, and there were gentlemen present who bad no right to vote.

[Laughter ] Mr Blgley now moved tuat the vote on the motion of Wilklns be taken by ayes and noes, tarried. Durlug the call of the roll, the executive com mittee men refused to vote. Other little Incidents transpired during the call which made the voting slightly Interesting. Sundry parties were accused of voting aye or nay for their absent friends, and MTeikl were detected in this little piece of politi cal fitmm. For Instance, Mr. Beau's name being1 called, some oue answered for him Voices, Indignantly?"Mr. Bean Is not present, Mr President " Mr. Burcb, (subduedly)?" Mr President, it was me wbo answered. 1 thought it was my name was called " [Ironical laughter ] Tbe call of tne roll being concluded, Mr. Wood, wbo bad voted "no." changed bis vote to aye, as he stated that be might have an opportunity to move a reconsideration of tbe vote at some future time. , The Chair announced tbe vote as follows. Ayes 106, nays 70. Tbe motion to lay on the table is carried. [Cheers] Mr. Brown now moved to reconsider the vote by which tbe amendment was tabled, and also moved to lay this motion on the table. That would place ft out of Mr. Wood's power to call it p again. Tbe Chair said thst everywhere but in tbe House of Representatives tueb a motion was out of order. A man cannot submit two motions at one time Mr H Richards ?Mr. President. I move to lay Mr. Brown's motion on the table. [Voices, that's Hi" The proposition waa carried Mr Heushaw gave notice that at the next meet ing he should oflw an amendment to enlarge the executive committee, as bad been done a week or two ago He believed that be spoke tbe senti ment of a majority of this body when he said tbat that, and tbat alone, would restore harmony here. Dr. Waters called Mr. He as haw to order Mr Heusbaw said tbat if by going on be hould be likely to give rise to any remarka similar to those uttered by Mr. Hunt at the last meeting, he would certainly stop [Laughter ] Mr. Rlcharas moved a resolution to tbe effect that the executive rommlUtw In th?1r mwtlnui have nothing to do with the giving out of offices. That they do not meddle at all In the matter. IVolces ? That's It That's the olive branch ] Ir A. Du vail seconded this proposition heartily. Mr. Breed made a speech very much to the same purpose. He had voted with Mr Wood on this proposition, because an attempt bad been made to choke htm dewn. He sympath aed with all people who are choked down It was this sort of action on oar part which, going abroad to the world through the papers, is Disstlng our charac ter with tb? incoming administration Freedom of speech ts the trst principle of republicanism The speaker wanted to eu this interminable wrangle.

The German Association bad not bad It here, and at the next meeting be should bring In an amendment to give tbem a better representation in the Eiecntlre Committee. At the Instance of tbe Chair. Mr. B explained that be did not intend tbe slightest reflection on the officers of this Association. Mr. Wllklns thought tie proposition of Mr. Richards an Insult to the committee, because It placed this entire Associstlon Executive Commit ter, officers, all before tbe world as nothing more nor leas than an organized band of office-seekers. Mr. Wood endorsed Mr. Wllklns' exposition of. the matter in emphatic terms. \TT PlonKen* A*nUin?J I# k?il ?*??? .? .

The secretary read as follows : Wber'-ns [laughter] the spirit of rebellion now abroad in our lund admonUhes us that it la time for all true men to speak out [cries of " good"] on tbe subject of our national calamities, and as an asiociatlon of Individuals [" that's so"J tqually interested with all other citizens in the preserva t on [" good again"] of this great country and its Illustrious accompaniments would be [cheers and cries of orderj known and read of all'roen faith ful to toe lost to the Inheritance ["thit'i the word-'] which we have received in trust from our fathers, and which it is (" bully for you"] our duty to transmit unimpaired to our children, to wit", [' that's legal,'"] the blessings of a free gov ernment: Therefore, Resolved, That it Is the opinion of this AssocU at ion that our troubles have been gradually verging to rebellion for many years, and that they arise, not from the opposition of the republican party, who have never had any power [" that's so"'] to oppress, but to the Inordinate ambition of men In power ['"beers.] Keto!red, That this rebellion has been hatched, and is now being matured, mainly by certain officer* [laughter] under the Federal and State governments, who, in violation of their solemn oaths, are daily plotting or advocating the de struction of the very nation and Constitution they are thus sworn to uphold. [Criea of * That's good'" 44 That's true!"] Resolvtd, That it is recommended to our Gov ernment that measures be taken to have every officer under the appointment of the Executive interrogated upon the point whether he is true to this country [laughter! or true to rebellion, with the view of removing every man who is In favor of rebellion, and supplying every vacancy so made by men faithful to the Constitution. [Cheers and cries of order ] Ketolved, That ibe treacherous course of John li Floyd, late Secretary of War. in transferlng large quantities of arm* and stores to the arsenals of ite ?outh, evidently causing them to be placed la ftucb a position that their capture would be easy and certain by rebel*, shows a complicity with treason that we were not prepared to expect. [" Give it to Vm."] R-solved, That Secretary Floyd, in making a pledge to the revolutionists of South Carolina not to reinforce the fortresses, made a pledge of dis honor to himself, and of grtyt grievance to his country. [Voices, emphatically, "good," and " that's true."] Resolved, That we are happy to see and highly approve the measure* now being taken for the de fence of this city, and that we will give our best efforts to secure all the families of this District from harm or outrage.

[Vociferous cheers and applause ] Resolved, That Mr. Abraham Lincoln is the man for the times, [great lauguter,] and that we await his inauguration with earnestness, deter mined. as we are, that he shall be inaugurated on the 4th of March next, at yonder Capitol.

Sev eral hundred persons were present Captain R Cleary was chosen president, and J H. ttantt. Esq , secretary, of the meeting. Able and fervent addresses were delivered by Dr. Boyle, F. A. Aiken, Esq , and L. Q Washington, Esq , who introduced a preamble and resolutions, which were adopted unanimously, with tremendous ap plause. The organization lain a moat flourishing condition, having already on its old muster roil alone Ave hundred names. The Volunteers sd Iourned to meet on Monday night, at Burch's iall, corner of D and Fourteenth streets We subjoin the preamble and resolutions adopted : The National Volunteers of the city of Wash ington having met for the purpose or perfecting and extending their existing military organiza tion, formed in the mpnth of September, 1880, deem It both a rlgbt and duty at this time to de clare to their fellow-citizens the principles which will control tbelr future action The constitutional compact of the Union be tween the States of the late Confederacy of thirty three States having been repeatedly and grossly violated by the North, a portion of the Southern States have been at last forced to seek by with J.. - ?. 1 1L.1 ?*- ? ' uiawu tuai security ior ineir peace, property ana honor which the experience of twenty-five years has demonstrated could not be found under a common government That government having been signed by the party which has proposed ana Justified all these acts or aggression, Dad faith and loatile agitation, Is now no longer a shield of de fense for the rights of all, but an agency by which the doctrines of a "higher law" may be carried out at such times and in such manner as Its advo cates may consider expedient. In a spirit of wise forecast and just regard for their houor, three of the slaveholding States have already witndrawn from the Union. Others will follow in a few days, and ere three months shall have paased, It is probable that all the slaveholding Stat?* will be confederated in a Union whose symbols will be equality, good faith, and the protection of prop erty of every description. We believe that this city would naturally be the seat of government for such new Confederacy, provided its citizens shall not suflVr themselves to be drawn into an atttiude of hostility to the South, and opposition to the wishes and action of the adjacent States of Virginia and Maryland. If Virginia shall secede, It would clearly oe unsnfe for the Federal Gov ernment to retain this point as a capital. If Maryland should lmltstp ih* ?rti?n n* and resume her sovereignty, the retention of this city by the black republican government would be not only unsafe but impracticable. We bold, then, that the destinies of Washington are inti mately linked with the States of Virginia and Maryland, and that to oppose their action would be ruin to every property-nolder in this city. While entertaining those views of future re sults, we expect their accomplishment by the logic of events, and rot by arms The cry of an alleged organimtion to interfere with the inaugu ration or the counting of the votes for President is unfounded, ridiculous, and mischievous in its effects. The attempt to give it a color by military proclamations and meetings, by enrolling the militia, by creating a standing army of 6,(J0U men in a peaceful city" by planting companies of ar tillery at prominent points, gathering from ex posed frontiers the troops necessary to repel the marauder and the savage, and thus converting our city into an armed camp, we denounce as a wanton ana wicked act of folly. It is a reflection upon our existing patriotic military companies, the iminlni rx-1 1*1 1 : * .>IUUI?I|A11 buiuuiiiiro anu an emcieui police. It lead* to alarm, public Inset urlty, and thus strikes at the value of property and tbeoperatious of com merce It puts the deliberations of Congress under the menace martial rule and discloses tbe melancholy fact that tbe Government Is virtually in bands of a military dictator, whose sole Idea of civil liberty Is the application of brute force to coerce sovereign States. We believe that a con trolling aim with many of those who have for menUd these unusual military preparations is to plac<^ins. at tbe public expense, in the hands of Wide Awakes of this city and elsewhere, In order that these sympathizers with John Brown may make similar assaults upon life aud property in this city. Wc therefore resolve as follows: 1 That we will stand by and defend the South, and that under no circnmstances will we asaum* a position of hostility to her Interests or a (filiate with a military organization prompted by a parti san spirit to subserve tbe aims of the black-repub xicaxi iiariy. { 2 That the reign of terror attempted to be in- | augurated in our midst is a system of tyranny which calls for the most emphatic rebuke 3. That we will aid each other and all good citizens against abolition violence, and attacks upon private property. 4 NVe will art in event of the withdrawal of Maryland and Virginia from the Union In such manner as shall b-?t srnre onrselves and those States from the evils of a foreign and hostile gov- i eminent within and near their borders The Co*ckrt, last night, for tfie benefit of the Washington Light Infantry, was a very great iir-f uss ??o o?o -???1 mi "* * ruvuvM) ?*c aic ?iau IV ia"uru.

Ia ? 1 11 ? - J > ivv?v?* ?u uuur\,? an iiivucj* uuvmuuiii^ anu Iup to the Society, xg soon as possible. On motion by Cel. Calvert, the executive com nittee was instructed to incur no expense this ?ear that cannot be covered by the amount of ivailable funds in the bands of the Treasurer. On motion by Col Calvert, a resolution wu idopted as fallows: f Whereas the agricultural interest demands of .he Government some recognition of its rights; herefore? Haolced, That it is the unanimous opinion of his Society that a full department of agriculture, with a cabinet miuister at its bead, is absolutely lecrssary for the protection of this great Interest. In offering the resolution, Mr. C. said that he lad alwaya maintained the importance of a recog iltion by the Government of this interest on which .he Government itself mainly depends There aad been efforts to this snd made from time to :ime by this society The question of an Agricul :aral Department had been freely discussed here it various meetings, and yet nothing had been lone. The late Secretary of the Interior had made is great promises, but had trilled with us, and ampered with us This interest was. in his opin ion, paramount to all others, it was high time :hat It be bo regarded. Did tbis society suppose 1 f we bad this department, with a minister In the 1 Cabinet, tbat the present condition of things I would exist in the country' The speaker had I itveral time* attempted to get the members of tbis loclety to enter Into a pledge never to support a I man for Congress who was not In favor of foster- i ing and protecting the interests of agriculture. 1 His eflorts had been unavailing, ana now we < ;ould see the terrible consequences This dis- i union, this secession now rages and agitates the 1 whole country. ? Let these men in Congress who are trifling sway our glorious Government, and who are re- 1 fusing to concede to one another, resign their i leats at once and go before the people, and In ten days the people of the country. North and South, will send men to Congress who will settle the difficulties pending between our brothers, and give us peace again In ten days time this dis union feeling would be put down. It Is because the agricultural interest is thus ignored by Con gress and the Executive, that our country (s now placed in such a deplorable position before the world. If we had an agricultural department, and a taan at Its head with a seat In the Cabinet, onr rranirr wnnid not now be on the brink of ruin Such a member of the Cabinet would ihow those crawling creatures who are plotting to destroy our brotherhood, that they cannot sever us, who are so directly concerned lo the perpetuity of this nation. Now Is the time for us to demand our rights Now is the time to claim that we have a voice in the affairs of this country During his remarks, Mr. C was applauded en thusiastically and frequently. - i The resolution was unanimously adopted. On motion by Mr Rabe, of Cal , Resolved, That the Executive Committee be in itructed to apply to the proper authorities for suit, able office accommodations, where the officers may transact the business of the Society, and for men pecuniary assistance as may be necesury to further the objects for which this Society has been Incorporated. The usual vites of thanks were passed. The Treasurer's report was accepted. Adjourned sine die Xott.?It is understood that the Society give no exhibition this year, In view of the distracted con dition of the country In the letter of >1r. W ager, late President of the Society, he recommends that a permanent place be fixed upon at which to bold all the exhibitions of the Society, so as not to in terfere with the efficiency of the State Societies, and thinks that Washington city would be the proper place, provided grounds could be obtained for the purpose at a reasonable rate.
