A j War of the magnitude of that we., Are. Waging its complications of commercial financial and political is not quite As pcs ii managed As a caucus kit that the president slow in closing his policy is the matter going to be helped by keeping no a Husid Nyrin from the thousand demagogic Al making noises incongruous As the languages of we All confide in old Abe.

The great War meeting yesterday of the citizens of the District of which the Telegraph has informed you Ere this was a perfect Success. Resolutions endorsing the confiscation act of Congress and calling on the president to use nil the resources at his command for putting Down the rebellion were passed by the immense concourse of people without a dissenting voice. Most of the speeches were of the right stamp and Sulci As would please a Lorain audience and. Were cheered to the Echo. But i will enclose you a morning paper which will give you a full account. The interest of the. Occasion was very much enhanced by the presence of the president and a portion of his Cabinet who saw the earnestness of the people and listened to the Plain Earnest talk of the speakers. The effect of the meeting Here will be to ferret out and punish traitors and push Forward the work of enlisting end raising Money. You any leave Buerd on ouch tendered resignation. You state you received some injury on the Railroad and that the medical officer of your regiment advised you to resign. This May be True but until Younesi Gration be accepted by proper authority you Are not discharged from your obligations As an officer of the neither your resignation the certify in tee of the medical officers if there were any nor any other papers bearing on the subject have Ever reached this office. It is needless to Tell you As you of necessity know it that under these circumstances you arc a deserter from the service of the United states. In time of Active operations in the face of the enemy it is not possible to try an officer for such offences especially in it not so when he is beyond the immediate reach of the military authorities of this army and Hia company to March on the enemy without a Captain it is therefore my deliberate intention to adopt the course which seems most effective to prevent such desertions. Every officer of this army absent without authority will be advertised in the Public papers and disgraced before the people if it be possible to do so. No resignation of any officer whatever will he accepted except upon medical certificate of the most conclusive character or proof of Worthley Aeneas. It is therefore to be distinctly understood that any officer of this army whose resignation has been accepted without medical hns proved himself worthless and incompetent. Neither with credit to himself nor with any sort of fair dealing towards. The private Soldier can any Volunteer officer tender his resignation. The Soldier has agreed to go into the service of the United , with the understanding that certain persons who pursuade1 him to enlist shall continue to command him. If he had thought otherwise there is no doubt that in Many cases he would have declined to Volunteer. When he has been sworn in he is bound for the whole term of service and there should be no one exempt nor so far As i can control this army shall he be exempt from the same restriction in that respect which has been imposed on the private Soldier. A Large part of the Disi satisfaction justly foil by the private soldiers of the Volunteer regiments has Arisen from this very practice. As soon As a commissioned minimum will certain rights but recruiting in Uit be i pruned until Cutry after a Nedical regimental surgeons must be pro on duty tinder fourth 4 paragraph order eighth 8 from War department.

A Star sir for the Oen fit of suffering humanity permit us to announce through the columns of your circular the burp rising.

We have several persons in town who have been suffering with liver complaint and in digestion and notwithstanding Havo As Good physicians of can be found in North can Obio yet the disease baffled their skill.

Therefore we end to the Public at Large of having recourse to co truly yours r. H. S. Pic Nic at Avon. The Sabbath schools of Avon and Ridge Villo held Pic Nic Oil the Avon fair ground on the . Some four or five Hundred children and adults were present to enjoy the festive occasion. Addresses were delivered by Rev. Bidding Watkins Gough Dana and Disbro. Appropriate music enlivened the occasion conducted by or. Joneson of Avo. A Rich repast was then enjoyed after which a Call was Nigado for u War meeting. There was a general Rush to Tho stand and patriotic War speeches were made by Rev. W. B. Disbro and Rev. L. S. Johnson. Much enthusiasm prevailed and the people returned to their Homes feeling that they had a country to save and that it was necessary for nil to look about and see what each can do to save it in this the hour of peril. D. Message from got. Tod. Columbus aug. 7, 1862. In reply to Many inquiries i have to state that the rules and regulations to Asiu duty bound discharge what we feel to be our cuty in advising persons who Are suffering is we have suffered to Raaka use of the Only True and sure cure for the Dia. Eases already mentioned. Govern drafting have not yet been received from the War deportment that As soon As received they published that until received 1 am unable to say for what length of time volunteers will be received for new regiments that the new regiments heretofore called for Are now nearly filled up but that recruiting for the old regiments in the Field progresses slowly. I Itin unable to account for Elliis. The position of the recruit in an old regiment is far More desirable than in n new regiment and also far More important to the government. The recruit joins a body of drilled men who have Laud and recovered from All the diseases incident to Camp life and Are t ius Able to receive and care for a new brother Soldier. The several military committees should act As recruiting officers for the old regiments and Forward All recruits to this department where they will be permitted to select to themselves the regiment to which they prefer to be attached. David Tod governor. A capital joke. The following capital joke in which Jake Hoover a Well known resident of Russia township played an Active part is related by the Hera id correspondent of the 4lst regiment.
