ABOUT one hundred and fifty Hancock men were present at the meeting last evening. The object of the meeting was stated, and a committee of five, Messrs Ivy, Markham, Tuckerman, Williams, and Otis, was appointed by the chair to draw up certain resolutions subject to the approval of the house. The following resolutions were drawn up and accepted : -
Whereas, in accordance with a time-honored custom, the students of Harvard University, irrespective of party, will march in the Republican procession, Monday evening, and,
Whereas, a false impression prevails, that the members of the University are unanimously in favor of the Republican candidate, we, here assembled, declare ourselves opposed to Gen. Garfield, and heartily in favor of the election of Gen. Hancock. And for these reasons : -
(1) The Republican party having abandoned its original principles, and adopted those of centralization and sectionalism, its further continuance in power at present would be injurious to the best interests of the country.
(2) The election of Gen. Hancock would reunite the country on a broad and patriotic basis; and we recognize in him such honesty, ability, courage, and steadfastness as will insure a pure and efficient Administration.
(3) A party led by Seymour, Hewitt, Trumbull, and Bayard, is more deserving of the support of young men than the party led by Conkling, Cameron, Blaine, and Logan.
