Below will be found an account of the dinner given on last Monday, by our citizens to the Hon. E. C. Wilkinson, as a testimony of the pleasure they feel in welcoming him again among them. The meeting of the citizens at which the resolutions were adopted was held on Thursday 28th. When the 5th toast was drank Judge Wilkinson arose and addressed the Company for about an hour in a very neat and appropriate style. His allusions to the late unfortunate circumstances by which he was surrounded, and the proud satisfaction he experienced, that those circumstances had been correctly appreciated, were very feelingly expressed. It was a balm to his lacerated feelings to find that the unfortunate necessity which had led to such calamitous results; had no tendency to diminish the confidence and esteem of those who knew him.
