At a meeting of citizens, held this day, for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of organizing some efficient board to assist in supplying our gallant volunteers with clothing, blankets, &c., Judge W. K. TURNER was called to the chair, and the following preamble and resolutions unanimously adopted:
In view of the imminent danger which at present impends over the country, growing out of a threatened invasion of our soil, it is proper and imperatively necessary that such steps be taken at once to organize and equip the military force of the State as may be necessary to put our citizen soldiery in a condition to repel the invader; and whereas it is absolutely indispensable that some proper authority should, without delay, be constituted to receive and disburse whatever contributions, whether of money, clothing, or other supplies, our patriotic citizens of Middle Tennessee may from time to time offer in this noble cause; therefor,
Resolved, That we, not in public meeting assembled, do organize and establish a Central Bureau of Military Supplies, to be composed of Hon. James Whitworth, Samuel D. Morgan, James Woods, R Currin McNairy, Robert H. Gardner, Geo. W. Cunningham, Irby Morgan, G. W. Donegan, Michael Burns, Carl Schott, James M. Hamilton, and Madison Stratton, who shall be vested with full power to make such regulations, and employ such agents as they may deem necessary for carrying into effect the purposes of their organization, and that they have power to add to their number at discretion.
Be it further resolved, That we earnestly recommend to our fellow-citizens of the various counties of Middle Tennessee, to form similar organizations and co-operate with us in carrying out such measures as may properly come within our duty as citizens of a common country.
On motion the name of Granville P. Smith was added to the Central Bureau. On motion it was,
Resolved, That a committee to consist of Judge W. K. Turner, Judge James Whitworth, Robt. H. Gardner, R. C. McNairy and Anthony W. Johnson, were appointed to advise the Legislature at its approaching session of this organization, and to offer their service to the State for the purpose as set forth, unless some other arrangements are made by the Legislature.

On motion of Mr. J. F. Morgan, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted:
WHEREAS, While we in common with our brethren throughout the State and nation have witnessed with painful anxiety and regret the prolonged and bitter contest for an organization which has for several weeks been maintained in the National House of Representatives, yet we have observed with hearty satisfaction the noble stand which the Americans in that body have taken in behalf of Nationalism, and preservation of the integrity of the Constitution, and the maintenance of the Union, in defiance of the open and avowed sectionalism of undisguised abolitionism; and in spite of disorganizing intriguers, who, under the cloak of a pseudo-nationality, and for the promotion of a party triumph, have persisted in supporting a man whose record has been proved unsound, and in direct antagonism to the interests of Southern people and the constitutional doctrine on the subject of slavery,
Therefore, Resolved, That the American party of Davidson county cordially endorses the conduct of the National Americans who have consistently adhered to HENRY M. FULLER, of Pennsylvania, whose sound conservative and constitutional views, are alike honorable to his head and heart, and meet our unqualified approbation.
Resolved, That Tennessee and the country at large owe a debt of gratitude to the Hon. FELIX K. ZOLLICOFFER, the above and indefatigable representative from this District, for his eminent services as one of the most conspicuous leaders of his party on the floor of the House; and that we, his immediate constituents, fully appreciate his sterling worth as a private citizen, and his patriotic devotion as a public man.
Resolved, That it is our opinion that the members of the American party in Tennessee have endured long enough the bitter and denunciatory course which our opponents have seen fit to pursue towards them, and we recommend them to enter the coming Presidential contest in the spirit of men conscious of the rectitude of their motives and principles and resolved at all hazards to defend them as such.
In a spirit of harmony and good feeling the meeting then adjourned.
