P0172:11 TILE ZANNER COUNTY OP PEIVNA !
• - Smile ftiw weeks since Major Jno. M.
' Kilborne'received, from Goy. Curtin, per
missionlo raise_two companies of men in
Potter county. At first it was thought,
•by some, impossible, as the county, inde
pendent ,of being new, sparsely settled,
and its people mostly farmers, had been
• pretty generally gleaned of recruits by
officers from - flew York Regiments and
from stray regiments throughout this
State. Potter had two hundred men in
:thefield, and some dared Ito think that
-with them had flown tthe bird of good
1 omen, That patriotism had become too
, weak and preferred displaying itself on,
' Abe street corners instead of the . battle
' field,—a grand mistake! On last Thurs•
day morning, Maj. Kilbourne, With about
eighty men belonging to the Hebron and
Allegany companies, started from Con
dersport, meeting the Oswayo Company
at Oswayo Village; here the people had
prepared a parting dinner forthe sordiers,
and after_listening to a short 'address by
a gentleman from Wellsville. N. Y., and
being joined by the Oswayo el/1111)dg,
numbering about one hundred men,,
took up their line of travel,, amid the
cheers of the pat 'lotto, the tears of mo
thers, wives, andsisters,aud the bless:
ings of the gray liaircd. I Upon nearing
Wellsville they were Met by, a large pro 1
cession of its good and patriotic citizens, i
with three bands,,a large•number of fire.
men and horsemen, and two large wagons
crammed full of pretty girls ! Proceed
ing to Wellsville they drove through the
principal streets, and• were then warmly
welcomed by the citizens' to a sumptuous
collation, previously prepared by the la
dies, after which they were "housed up"
toawait the night cipress. Many thanks
are due the Ladies and citizens of Wells,
vile for the cordial and hospitable recep
tioti extended- to our troop.. May they
continue in the good work of aiding the
brave Volunteers who are Eghting to
secure 'peaae mid happiness : to our much
troubled :country.—Atone o'clock the
."bays", left for Elmira, where they were
to remain until the nest day, 5 o'clock.
—But, while congratulatincr ourselves
upon the raising of one 'Battalion, let us
remember- that we have not,-as yet, done
. all that we: can do, some of the townships
Lave 'not furnished a single man, while
others have not done •what they ought
and may have yet to do before the ..war
closes. The qovernos of the States are
urging more troops into the:\ field, and
great activity prevails in all departments.
'Much credit is due I.‘ ajor Kilborne for
the energy and activit , with which, in
so short a time, In o ace ' lished the no
ble work. - Assisted by th rave officers
and mop' we .have no fears but that otter
county will show itself born - brave and
loyal. This last instalment will make
our county-the Banner County of the
State. Four tlundred men in the field
and only.' eleven thousand population ! ;
Hurrah for Eotter ! Bravo "little Potter!" . i

i ./2f.-solved, That alth t ouzh our faith in
j Republican principles remains unchanged, :
. hereby expreSs our wfllingness
hereafter to ignore party issues and names
and to co operate with loyal men of 'all
partici who shall manifest a like disposi•
tion towards , us, belieVing that during the
continuance - of our National troubles , all
opponents of anarchy and disunion rod
their attendant vices and horrors—per
jury, ruin, war and bloodshed—ought to
be firmly united in support of The Union,
the Constitution, and the culorcement of
the laws. - , ,
Resoli-ecl, That without . 'Union them
can be neither prosperity nor peace, and
that the idle clambr nf "peace, peace,"
while armed rebellion is defying the laws,
paralyzing .all bta.nches of industry and
preying upon our coMtnerce, laying waste
large portions of our: bbloved country and'
sapping the foundations of our liberties
by attempting to overthrow the Govern
ment' which alone secures us in their en-
joyment, is the Tory only of demagogues
who fur party or personal success would
jeopardize the best interests of their
country, or of base traitors who deliber
ately seek to betray her , into the hands
ti her mortal enemies.:
Resolved, That it' is the duty of every
j true patriot to sustain the Government
in its present hour of peril, by every
means in his power, that this is not the
, time for the display of, partisan censori
ousness, and that he who finds more to
condemn in the conduct of those who are
seeking to maintain the supremacy of the
laws and to uphold the Union in its
tegrity; than in the !lets of those who
having fearlessly forswprn their allegiance
to their country, areseeking, to overthrOw
the ark of Our safety and the palladium,
of our liberties, furnish unmistakable 'ev
idence of being at heart a traitor. i
Resolved, That those who have so no
bly volunteered to assist in the maintain,-
ance of our Union, italustitutions and its
Jaws, are, entitled -to nur warmest Bp:lva,
thy and gratittide, and we hereby pledge
ourselves to do what' , Hys in our power to
enhance the comfort of the fautilie;il
'those who have thus, enlisted, orj o
shall hereafter enlist in tl is holy service.

Gen. Fremont's Proclamation.
ST. Loins, Aug. 31, 1861.—The fol
lowing proclamation was issued this
"Circumstances, in my judgment of
sufficient, urgendy, render it necessary
that the ,Commiinding General of this
Department should assume the adminis- ,
srative powers of the State. Its disor
ganized condition, the helplessness of the
civil authority, the total insecurity of life,
and the devastation of property by bands
of murderers• and marauders who infest
nearly' every county in the State and avail
themselves of the public misfortunes and
the vicinity of a!hostile force to gratify
private and neighborhood vengeance, and I
who find 'an enemy wherever they find
plunder, finally demand the severest meas
ures to repress the daily increasing crimes
and outrages which are driving off the
inhabitants and ;ruining the State. In
this-condition the public safety and th
success of our arms require unity of pur
pose, without let or hindrance, to the
prompt administration of affairg.
"In order, therefore, to sUppsess dis
