He therefore proposed Mr. CharleaC Anderson as chairman, t a M wm a ? . woo wa? riecwa. in renwic* was appointed PC rotary. Mr Anderton, on taking the chair, stated that be came there simply a? a voting participant, and bad not desired this portion. He d sired iw^me w.wbo knew, to state the object of the meeting.

He w?uld support the Union and tbe Constitution, i'he Union men were the men to elevate. Thnae who would Introduce party politic* at thla time are not patriots. The object of the meeting.

Mr l.loyd said he abould have attended on Tienday night, but for the phraseology of the rail He waa not a Republican, but be did not hesitate to say that all the energies of the Government should be given to the prosecution of the war. He did not, and could not endorse all that President Lincoln bad done, nor waa be prepared it Mindly endorse what might be done In the future He would therefore have been an interloper, had he attended the meeting of Tuesday. r% > i wu* wuuia |nn?u? iwriciy man ibc jfunrof tbe Constitution, bad a right to partlctpate In thle meeting.
