To-night the Central Union Club holds its regular public meeting at its spacious headquarters, corner of Market and Quincy, second floor. Gov. Boreman is expected to speak and we hope to see the hall filled at an early hour. Nearly all the details of the club organization have now been perfected, and it is expected that the headquarters will be for the next six weeks a lively and entertaining place. The intention is to have the hall lit up every night and kept open in a free and easy way, and to have plenty of newspapers and good union campaign documents, and thus to make it the grand resort of all the loyal men in the city. It is also expected that the latest telegraphic news will be bulletined at the club every night at 9 o'clock, and, as every union man feels, the dispatches are not going to bring us anything hereafter but good news, they will necessarily be an interesting feature.

What we want is that every Union man in the city should consider himself one of the club, and further that he should feel himself bound to report at the headquarters at least two or three times a week. To all our brothers we would say, come to the rooms to-night and hear the Governor, and see what a rendezvous we are preparing for your entertainment. The Governor is just home from Washington and knows a great deal that will be interesting for us to hear. Let us have a good meeting.
