    Remarkable Unanimity.

    Since the election we have had an opportunity of mingling personally among large numbers of our fellow-citizens from various portions of the State, now in attendance at the Fair in this city, and of obtaining their opinions touching the duty of the State in view of the election of Lincoln and the prospective installation into the offices of the federal government of his sectional party upon the one idea of hostility to the Southern States. To our great joy we have found that almost without division, the people are in favor of immediate withdrawal from the Northern States and the establishment of a Southern confederacy. In this great conservative movement for self-preservation, men of all parties are joining with a zeal and enthusiasm which we have never before seen equalled. This is as it should be!
