The Committee feel that, as the season is drawing
to a close, and as most of merchants' stocks are
nearly exhausted, they must look to the homes of
our generous and patriotic citizens throughout the
three States for supplies, and beg of them to con
tribute of their remaining stores, and thus aid the
noble cause in which every true heart feels so deep
an interest. Contributions to the ' , Canned Fruit

cryAPPEAL—UNION VOLUNTEER RE
To tie Citizens of Philadelphia: It will be three
rears on the 27th day of May,lS&l, since the Union
'Volunteer Refreshment Saloon - commenced its
operations. The Committee never hare pressed
their claims ; neither have they lost sight of the
fact that there were other institutions equally
worthy of public confidence and support, and they
have endeavored to discharge the duties entrusted
to them in an honest, econornical, - quiet affd unos
tentatious manner. Up to this time we have been
generously supported by contributions from our
friends and a onion of the monied corporations
of Philadelphia. We have tried to lee ien the bur
dens of our kind friends by annual fairs in 3 nue;
the first was a success; the Second comparatively
a failure, in consequence of the raid into Pennsyl
vania lest summer. and there is no prospect of
_holding one this season as intended. The high
price of provisions. and the heavy and constant
demand on our Saloon have nearly depleted our
Treasury, and as the signs of the times point to a
series of proiract.d battles, and as there will so
doubt be still further calls on our limited resources,
we are compelled to make this appeal to the libe
rality of the citizens of Philadelphia and vicinity
for assistance, otherwise our future usefulness
will be very much impaired:
Contributions in cash and notice of provisions
and Sanitary stores for our use will be received by
the following gentlemen:

Thomas Robbins, Esq., President Philadelphia
