Gen. Horatio King and Gen. Geo. H. Sharpe, representing the committee of the Army of the Potomac, arrived at Richmond on Saturday, and were met by a committee of the Army of Northern Virginia. These gentlemen are perfecting arrangements for a grand reunion to be held at Gettysburg, on July 1, 2, 3 and 4. General King stated that Congress proposes to furnish money enough to give the soldiers shelter and furnish transportation to those on both sides, who are financially unable to attend. Gen. Sharpe stated that the war department would send batteries to fire salutes and soldiers to do guard duty.
