On the 24th the club and citizens in mass are to meet on the Park or Public Square at 10 A.M., to form in procession and escort Mr. Lincoln to the fair grounds.

Thirty-two couple on horse-back, ladies and gentlemen are to form in procession and proceed to march to Urbana with music and banners, and will be joined by the citizens of Urbana and vicinity, from thence to the fair ground -- here a basket pic-nic dinner will be the order, after which, at 2 o'clock P. M., speaking will commence.

Mr. Lincoln will reply to the speech of Mr. Douglas, of the 23d. Come Republicans, come Democrats, come everybody, and hear the two leaders and champions of the two parties, and judge for yourselves. Let us have a good friendly time.

On the evening of the 24th, Mr. Lincoln will be the guest of the Urbana Club.

Trumbull, Thompson and Lane of Indiana, are invited.

The Committee that served the West Urbana Club so faithfully in arranging for the Monticello convention, on Finance and Banners, were reappointed by a unanimous vote of the Club.
