The concert at Cassville takes place tonight. The proceeds are to be applied to repairs on the Grave Yard at that place.  In this Grave Yard lie the remains of many Confederate soldiers from distant States, whose neglected resting places do not speak well for the “memories of the lost cause,” and through the graves of many of the “loved and lost” a trench was dug during the war. –To repair these damages and restore something at least of its former neatness to this graveyard, is the object of the Concert.  We were led into the error of stating that Rev. C. A. Evans would deliver an address on the occasion. The programme calls for music, charades and tableaux.
