A feeling of perfect security pervades our entire community, both in its social and business relations. The reports, therefore, that our citizens are panic utrickon, and that men, women and children are fleelsg from the city, are positively untrue. Some apprehension existed several days ago, but this was soon quiotcd by tho measures of the Administration to guard against all possible contingencies. The feints of tlic rebels on tho line of the Fotomac are now better understood, and military men whose opinions are entitled to groat respect say that, even with the ordinary dependonco on raw troops, they would desire nothing better than for General Johnston or Geueral - Beauregard to attempt that part of tho rebel progrnmnte which contemplates an &dration towards Washington. It la reasonably suspected lbat{ this rallying cry is adopted to sustain tho flues ins gDirit of the rebel In n-hou numbers It is positively known are fast thinning by Mallpox, measles, pneumonia and other diseases. Many absurd stories arc from time to time propagated toy persons active in causing dissensions among our troops, and ainoug the latest is one that CI on. Johnston Iijls crossed the Potomac, together with other important movements; tout special inquiry at the proper source to-day wari ants * positive contradiction. It is certain no such information has reached the headquarters of the urmy. TIIK ARMY. Tho following order, as will be soon by its number, is the lire I issued by General McClellan siuce tuking command of his new department, and is an ofllciul sanction of llio announcement in this correspondence some days aince of tho staff officers of General Mct'lellan, with tho except ion of one or two named that have been added:?

General McClollan and his staff aro busy day and night trganizing hie command into divisions and brigades. This work is nearly completed and will be announced in a goueral order. Brevet Brigadier General Rinlov was to-dav nromobvl to A full Brigadier General undor the late law of Congress, and made Chief of tbo Ordinance Department; Major By to?ton Is promoted to a Colonel, a position in thoOrdaanco Department provided for by tbo law referred to. Major George D. Ramsay and William Msynodior arc proOMted to Lieutenant Colonels: and Captains Wiilinra A. Tboriitrc, Robort H. K. Whiteley, Toter V. Hagnor and Robert.!. Wainwright.arc promoted to Majors. All of'the nbovo promotions nre confined to tbo Ordnaneo Department, nud are the rosalt of the promotion of Geno" ral Ripley., nn ant which awards simple juslicedo a worthy and active oflleor, and shows an appreciative dls{>o- itiou on ttefi pant of tlie powers that bo. Captain John Lee vacates his present potilien in the Ordnance department, and continues as Judge Advocate of the arm}. Colonel I). Baker's California regiment had another dress parade to-day, and again passed in review by. the White Howe. The excellent diclpljnc and drill displayed alteiU'd universal admiration. Colonel Abram Duryec, formorly tf tbo Seventh New York Vatidnal Guard, now commanding the Advance Guard at Federal HiU, near Baltimore, arrived here today. Hta visit, I team, is.ln connection with his ext>eet. ed appointment to a Hngadior (Seneralsh p of Volunteers. Major General Butler,of Fortress Monroe. has been detailed by General Wool to the command of tho volunteer forces at thut lost. General Bntler -will occnpy that po;?JHen for some time before returning to MaMnchuaetts to raise a new division. Major General HcClellan Ins peeled General King's brigade at Kalorama In the north part of this disvrict, and Alio one bngado on tbo other sido of tho Potomac. Some surprise has been manifested here thut tVncral McDowell has never applied for a court of inquiry in relation to his conduct at Bull run. It is not clear (o every one that a dlflestrous rout could have oecurred without mismanagement somewhere, and it is thought by many that be should fcuyo been exonerated from b.'ume before [E NE resuming tho common I of the army which, under his guidance, fell hack in disorder fn m a licld of such immense impoilance. Tho splendid new building erected by ox-hanker Oorco iiui, uupo?uu un war uopartmcut, and doateuiea to uri, lias been taken by the government, and will be Immediately opened for the reception and distribution of clothing for the army. It will be lu charge of the military storekeeper at this place. Arrangements are being made by Commissioner Wood and others to have the troops upon their arrival at the depot in (bis city supplied with refreshments at tho newly erected buildings for that purpose. This excellent arraugomont will do away with tho complications and annoyances heretofore experienced, consequent upon tho arrival of strange troops in the night without tho knowledge how to obtain the necessary provisions for tlio troops, for the want of not knowing places and men. THK NAVY. The Navy Department has had the Maryland shore of the lower rotomac examined Tho expedition was under the direction Of Major Reynolds, of the Marine corps. It landed at tho different points, and scoured the surrounding coun. try, but discovered no sign ' of hostility, noi anything to capturo or destroy. iuu iwn uuu iriM nmriuoB wnose namg senionuown me river* few days ago excited much simulation, wero brought back to thu Navy Yard last night by the Baltl. more.

It was discovered yesterday that the rebel forco in front or our lines, which had been pushing its advance nearer to our position day alter day, bad been suddenly withdrawn, at least us far back as Fairfax Court House! To-day a rumor has been circulated by parties from the viciuity of Ixtcsburg, stating that tho main body of the rebel army is being concentrated at that point. This report Is not improbable, but It bus uot yet been verified. Tho rebel leaders arc evidently at a loss what to do. Iuuetion is ruinous to their arras*. Kxo. cute their menace to uttaek Washington* and they do not know at what point they may themselves be attacked by Gonerul llcneilan. Information lias been received (list uu lmmonso number of their men arc in hospital. The small pox and measles arc said to be ravaging their uaraps. Tho daily stage between Washington and Iconardstown was stopped to-day upon the suburbs of the city and overhauled. Two of tho pusscngors, among whoso baggage were found communications addressed to rebels In Virginia, and contrabaud articlos, were arrested and held for further examination. ARRIVAL OF CATTAIN FABINS, OF TnE ROYAL DUTCH NAVY. Captain Fahlus, of tho itoyul Dutch Navy, bearer of despatches to tho government, is registered among the arrivals at Willard's to night. v - ''senator Wit.son appointed to a position, on major okkckal mVLKLLAN'S staff.

Senator Wilson leaves Wash, lngtou to-morrow to aid in the organization of a regiment in Massachusetts, with n Hying battery of artillery attached, he laving already obtained authority for tlat purpose. ?. > ' SECRETARY WELJ.ES AND THE CABINET. There is evidently iu\ lutcalien to oust Secretary Welles from tho Cabinet. Wid e he may not he tlio strongest man in Unit body, time will provo that he unit- ae clearly c< mnrchends his duties, and is a , little more lamest than gome other membci s of the Cabinet. Don't be surprised to bear of Mr. Welles' resignation at any time. KETVHN OF THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF WAR. Assistant Socretary of War Scott hn* been absent on business for the government a few days, and returned tonight. OROANTZATTON OF THE TOLICE. The new police force now being organized for this city is progressing slowly. In ordinary times there would be no objection to confining the selection of the men to tho District, but in tho present crisis, when a large uuraher of the actual citizens have loft the place, and the city is tilled up with strangers, there should be higher motives than a desire to confine tho selection of liolicemon to any particular locality. Tho new pnlioo will bo n national, not a local force. The citizens of the District should have no more exclusive control over tho selection of the men to compose this force than the citizens of Philadelphia, New York or Tli is ton?indeed noi so much, if the majority of tho rosi. dents here arc to settle the question. The best detectives of tho loyal Northern cities who aro posted about nan and lhiugs should lie employed hero at once, and set to work. On the contrary, certain petty politicians about here, who have fattened on tho government for years, are crying out against tho interference of the people of other part6 ?f tiic United Elates with tho district poliae. It reminds one of the (Wipers who once protested against tho interference of the selectman of the. town in which they derived their support. ^The residents of this district evidently entertain tho mistaken idea that tiny own and therefore should govern Wasldugton and I ho district. SEIZTOE OF NEW YORK PAPERS. The city was suddenly thrown into a state of excitement upon the arrivat of tho train from New York tonight, by learning that the government bad seized, at j Philadelphia, all tho Ne,v York papers on tho way | to this city. It v.-as s ton explained, wliun it turned on1 | that the officers were only ordered to seize the New Turk | Journal, of Gimme ret. Day Hook and At ion; but the bundles the immense piles of (tie lovuI papers in season to allow the latter to come on by that train. Those who bad the I?k :ai.d by tnai! were stoi meJ, and ooukl easily luvo sold their copies at one dollar each. OUR WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCE. Wamiikutok, August 19,3S61. The AIUfffd Mutiny wt the Snmly-ninlh. Xtgiimn!. The alleged mutiny in the Seventy-ninth regiment of New York Volunteers, and tho prompt mo isures adopted by General McClollan to suppress it, lies for tho past few dayB been the principal topic of conversation here and elsewhere, and of newspaper jrublicity througliont the loyal States of the Union. The first reports of tho affair seamed to implieato tho entire regiment,but this, we are happy to state, is not so. It appears "the regiment, had been subjected to wbnt app -nred to them a series of unjust grievances. When this feeling lirst discovered itself every cfl'ott was made by the officers of tlio regiment to dispel any fa'so ideas ihc men might entertain of n dnslre to treat them unjustly, at tho sumo time assuring theui that uny grievances they might be laboring under should be remedied through the logal military channel*. When Can. Porter visited the camp Of tho refiuiout and read tho order of Gen. McClelian, acquainting them of his know ledge of a diiafiectlon in their ranks, with an order to lay down their arms, nil but twenty six of (lie men rendered immediate obedience, and the latter were promptly arrested. Of those arretted not one cotntrtisflioned officer wag to be round. Many of the published statements of this affair have been garbled or are entirely erroneous, and as the history | of it is very brief, and it Is due to the friends of the regi- I merit that tba real facts should he published, wo ha-ton to lay tham before the readers of tho IUkaiji. * At the battle of null run and since that time the aliment lias boon lu uM reduced iu killed, wouudot and by sicknnws, go that it is now reduced to nw fly one-half its original number.

CHArt. W SANFOH1), Jlujor ticneral. Wamiisoton, August X, 1H61. Tiie petition wna then taken to tho Secretary of War, who porui-od the docunuut and General Stanford's recommendation, and immediately promulgated tlie subjoiucd apecial order, which, it will lie observed, is highly tomuieu datory of tho Bcrvici s of tho regiment:? The Si-crotary of War bcliev a that, In consideration of the gallant ?ei vices of tho Sevcuty-ninth regiment of Now York Volunteers, iirnl of their loascs in liatile, uiul afterward h.v wounds received m two hard fought tin ties, tin*y,ore entitled to tlio special consideration of tlie country ; and he also orders ill it the regimeut he scut to sumo one of the forts tri the Hay of New York, to till up tho regiment hy recruits, a* soon as Colonel Stevens returns to the command. SIMON CAMEHON, Hecrotary of War. The < rder was cominunicntcii to the regiment, and, naturally to exjiect, the men were greatly elan d at tho complimentary terms In winch tlioy were alluded to in tho Secretary of War's order, and the prospect of an op poriuiniy to recuperate tneir neat in ami numerical strength in Now York. In tbo meantime, while the regiment was awaiting tlio return of Colonel ftevenr, the Secretary of War. through the medium of his special advisors?thinking that by allowing this regiment to recruit In the manner proposed might afford other regiments an excuse for asking a similar favor, and thus tend in a measure to domoiallro and cause discontent among ?' whole army? countorniandod the order he luul pre\ y given ordering the regiment to New York. The reader can Imagine ttiu disappointment which it created; but till* would have been dispelled were it not for the fact that a number of discharged officers or the regiment, who were then in camp, by false representations and had advhc,stimulated the mcu to the mutinous nets of which they have since discovered their error. The officers alluded" to resigned their commissions for no apparent cause, and it seemed as if they wonted to involve the regiment in difficulties, to break up its organization, so as to hide the ignominy and scorn which they anticipate I at home. In the alleged mutiny of the Ssvcnty-ninth regiment tho commissioned officers to a man were loyal to their country and obedient to the commands of their superiors. lluth Colonel Stevens an J Lieutenant O>lonel KlUott, when the mutinous spirit disclosed itself, made strenuous efforts by all tiio force of language which they were misters of, in Ibeir appeals to the men to induce the latter to be mindful of their obligations to their country. )n their appeals they were successful, and nil of the members of the regiment who might have had any intentions to bo mutinous returned to their duties. Those who refused to do duty, It Is said, were under 1 lie lutlucnce of liqnor furnished by the discharged olHcers before referred to. Another point on whirh it is aliened the mutinous spirit wus based was In const nuence of the promulgation of nn order directing the consolidation of the regiment with the Sickles brigade, a measure not desired by the otticers or men, for reasons best known to themselves. This is a plain statement of the whole case. In giving it I do not offer myself n* a champion or defender of muliuous soldiers. If helpline, hy a wholetwmo obodtencc of orders of superiors, must be enforced, let such orders he right or wrong. The army regulation? afford all neressary remedies for the mal-adruiutrtrathm of superiors, and the remedies are open to all, even the humblest soldier in the ranks.

Yesterday morning, in tiro Kings County Court, Brooklyn, Judge Harrison presiding, Messrs Wood and Van wooii, counsel mr hjc juutimorv 1'oiii o commissioners imprisoned In Kurt Lafayetto, applied lor nn order against Sheriff Chuii bell, requiring him to show canto why 0:1 ?t tarhmcut should not Issuo ogatsat him for contempt, t>u the ground that .his returns to the attachment and pro cept against IJcutennnt Colonel Ite.rku were improper.

The law lour aimed the .Sheriff with the whole fiuce of th > county to exocuto a process, and ho lues no right to say he hail no control of |<ower sufficient to make the arrest until he lia<i first exerted and exlmustvd the power til'' law gives him, and If that was inautltciont, then the fact should so appear in liis return. The process commanded the Sheriff to bring those ho lies into Court, mid no return exci s ? or Justifies Ids failure to do so unlcs it appease that he callod out the power of the county ami II refused to res|i?ud, or that it was inadequate to overcome the apprehended resistance. We are not to assume thai the process cannot be r xocutod, or that the law cannot be vindicated, and that therefore it wuiild not lie udvisublu to lecoun.ffo proce<"lim:s wtiirh might bring ou u collision between the civil :uid military authorities.

Yesterday a very important arrest was made at the Fifth Avonuo Hotel. A Southerner, whoso name we were unable to learn, but who istrem Petersburg, Virginia, was arrested by two of Ibc detective force, and on hiH ja rson was found over one hundred thousand dollars in drafts and Southern State bonds, also about one thousand dollars in cold, fie is said to be a licavy dealer In tobaoeo, and is tno owner of two large tobacco plantations in tlie South. Ha is a man ahout fifty years of age, unmarried, and is alleged to be a rabid secessionist. Ho was taken to the Pol if o Headquarters, where ho is temporarily confined, and will no doubt soon be sent to Port 1afayetto. Tliere was said to lmve been found tipon lils ik'rson memoranda for various artlchw, such as needles, thread, quinine, and for various parties iu Viginia, which h no doubt intended to take on with him. Three other arrests have been made by tiro above force during the last two days, one of the latter also being taken from the above hotel. On Ills person whs found important Southern papers, about $K00 in gold, and about $160 In Mils, mostly Virginia money. Ho is said to bo in soino way connected with lieneral Wise, and was be arer of despati lies from a leading Southern bouse in this city to fieiiursl Wise and a banking house in Savannah. The other two parties are said to bo both Southerners, one of whom was arrested for offering bogus drafts on one of the Virgiula banks. Tlio latter two wero yestcr: day sent to port Lafayette.

These inun know the falsity of the story, nevertheless for secession aid circulate It. The country is full of theso lies. They tell the Ignorant that this is a war for the abolition of slavery and the con it-cation of all Southern.property. I havo it from authority Jii. t arrived from Richmond that as soon as the news arrived there of the rt treat of the Union forpes, the negro traders gathered together all the handcuffs In the Jails, and sent them clear of the right wing and round to the centre in front, and thus deceived even I lie rehol soldiers, and ha-l thciu brought to Richmond as trophies.

There are the Cameron Hi lies, United States C'haaseui and the Second FlroZouaves. The Cnmori 11 Rltles received an extension of time uutil to day to receiv e their full complement of uniforms, and tho departure^ tho Chasseurs is pOBtpoued to Saturday. The delay, of the Second Fire Zouaves lias arisen from causes of an efttirely different nature. There Is some trouble about ihocnm inaud of the regiment, which it is rather dllllcull to com prchend, and may detain tho men for a few dnyu. It it. possible that lliey may go to-lay. Tho mustering in of new companies continues with great activity. Among these mustcreS hi yesterday wort two of Colonel Sorrel's regiment of F.ngtuocrs and Artisans, now encamped to.tho number of four companies at Stateu Island.

Til El K DKI'AUTIRK rOSTPOKKD?lUKb'iCl'LTY AMONG TUB OKNCKKS OK TUB REGIMENT, ETC. The Fourth regiment, F.xccislor Brigade (FlroZouaves), yesterday left tlie armory of the (seventh regiment, wlm-n 111..V lintl lone nU.l.t .,,.1 ..m... I to march to thu foot of Canul street, in order to tuko bout for Camdou, ? route to Washington. Ttie tsecond Fire Zouaves have been encamped at Platen Island for some time, but are not yet quite full. Under thi recent ordoi from tbu Secretary of War, they weru bound to proeo- d immediately to tho sent of war, whether tliolr reginieut contained tiie necessary complement of n on or were pro prrly oqulppi d or not. Kven this, It appears, led U> n g- od deal i f dissntisfnctlun among the members of lie corps. At twelvo o'clock yesterday, the must or having boon cnl o 1, there were found only about 600 men answering n their nnnvs; but when two o'clock arrived neatly Ron wore present, so that tho line of march for departure w.?.at once taken up. There appears, however, to bo gome uitflculty hi connection with Colonel Falrinun's relations Wlth the regiment, The men themselves do not like to hi' attnehod to Sickles' l'rigade, and they express a warm fooling for Colonel Fuirntan, against whom, It appeal." trotig efforts nro being made l>y politicians at Washing ton to oust out of the command of the Zouaves. When the regiment moved from the armory yesterday afternoon they did so without tho consent or command o! Colonel Kali man, and when tlicy arrived nt the foot i>l Canal street no Isiat was lliero to receive them. Tie march from tho armory down the Bowery to Grand street, ih wii Grand street to itroadway, and down Broad Hay to foot of Canal street, could not he considered a Mbvcmcut of a hi sly of s ildlcrs, hut that of a number ol stragglers,for the men weio allowed to walk just how and where they pleased. Alter waiting nt the pier, frsd of Canal street, for wmc time,C>lonol Caiman arrived tuid s|sike to the men. He said that lie was justly entitled I" commntid th'rn, and ordered them Hack to the arsenal. where he would take charge of them. Tlie men then pro eceded to the arsenal, from whence thy wore conducted by Colonel Fairman to the I'ark Barrucks, wli ere they I l-IIKIUII-ll HIM NlgUl. Tho whole ujfair seems clomlcd in mystery. j THE HKMIMKNT IN THE FA11K. Between five ami six o'clock tho Zouaves, according to orders, assembled at tho Park liarraelu. As the men con giegated about tbo Park, considerable dissatisfaction was manifested at tbo delay they were put to ami the niter ignorance of their officers ns to their future movetneuls. Orders having been issued by the Colonel lor Use I ml ice t<> arrest all those found at large throughout the city without pats g und convi y tin in to tlto Pork 1 tarrocks, H e j.olico about e x. n o'clock began to bring them in quite rapidly. Many who were intoxicated were very boisterous, and tviuoed a disposition to create a disturbojico. At one time they \w:ro very loud ill llieir threats to take revnbge on the police for interfering with them. It sovme tliat at six o'ohek the Cokx-.cl dis mi sod tlie regiment with tho understanding that tliey wore at liberty to go at largo until eight o'clock this morning, but tho Coloi e' neglected lo make known the fact a*, the polh* headquarters. Finally, the Zouaves became so hoisU roi r that the l-'ourth ward police wore sont lor, but the sadden shower liiat cans.' up about that ttmo was the means of disjicrsiug therlot'-re. Deputy Superintendent Car pi liter visited tile I "ark Barracks ubuut ciglit o'cloi k, niel on finding tliat orders had been given to the regiment that they wero discharged until this morning, ho immediately countermanded the order for the (mliee to arrest them, and they were accordingly pcrmilU d to visit their dreg tiumolcirted. It lg certainly very unpleasant far the police to receive orders to return all members of certain regiments found upon tlra street, and 011 taklug them to tlivir quarters to find out that orders hovo b on given to |iermit the men to go about the city. No less tiian four orders wero issaari to the police, at tho request of Odonel pair man, yetterday, and lind ta bo countermanded. The statement that a dlstttrbnnco took place among tliu members of Captain Purtell's company, and that many left tho ranks, in untrue. Tho fucts are these. Captain I'urfell, Just I cfnre tlto regiment left tho Seventh region ut armory, was cillod a ide bv u number of friends und presented with a is-autlf cl gwetd, tutsli and licit, and while in their company the r< gtruent took up tlie line of march for tho st'amor. Some little dispute arose nmosg the men ns to wliieh lieutenant should liave command in the absence of tho cap lain. It lasted until tlioy reached Canal street, when Captain Purtcll succeeded in overtaking the regiment. FIRST REGIMENT UNITED STATES CIIAESEURS. It was understood that this regiment was to have taken their departure for the seat of war yesterday afternoon, but Colonel Cochrane refused to allow his men to leave unless fully provided with all that Is essential for the comfort of tlio men. They will, therefore, not leave, until Tuerduy next. The do id d step taken by Colonel Cochrane shows that he Intends tlnit his command shall not ho humbugged by promisee, and that they shall have ull that is due each man for Wk comfort and health before they leave, so that when they report for duty at Washington they will need no further attention, and w ill be ready to go immediately into tlio field of act inn. There are yet two companies to be sworn in, which, it is thought, will 1k> ready in timo to comidotc the full required rmmlier of men liefore Ihoy leave. At present they number about eight hundred. FIRST REGIMENT OREGON RIFLES. Colonel Williamson, of this Regiment, lias just returned from Philadelphia and Washington with the necessary documcats, and is now fully authorized by the War Department to complete the regiment and report for special duty at Wtlliamsport, Maryland, to Colonel Ward H. Lemon, who is organizing a Brigade there. The Regiment oomprlsos sixteen companies, two of which will bo cavalry, ono a battery of rifled cannon, and the others rifles. As soon oa each company is fuH it is transiiorted to tlie alxivo rendezvous and immediately mustered into tlio United States service, the men furnished with good rlflo uniforms, long range rifles, and subsistence?the cavalry to do picket guard duty. Sevoral array oflicers will ba assigned positions In the regiment. In fact, all Uio oflicers and all tho men are of undoubted luiliuuy experience, and character beyond roprooch. The men for the most part are first class rifle shots, and will prove destructive enemies on the battle ground. The camp of instruction is temporarily located at South lirothur Island, in the Kost River, and the hoadquarters are at So. S3 Cortlandt street. It is intended that the whole regiment will repoft for dot#- at Williamsport before the expiration of ten da}1*. THE CAMERON LEGION. The Oalonol and Quartermaster of tho above reglmeDt are now absent from tho city, vigorously rocruitlng men for the completion of the corps. They have already succeeded In getting nearly five hundred mon, nn l the only iinpcdimont to their conveyance to the city is the means of transportation. The officers have expended all their own funds In bringing the regiment to its present efficient state, and with a little timely aid from the government another excellent body of fighting men may be added to the army In a few days. Recruits can now be obtained only in the Interior, and it is to bo hoped that prompt assistance will be given to bring the recruits of the Cameron Legion to the city, where every comfort awaits them in the camp. Any persons in the city desiring to join will apply at the headquarters, 44 (ireenwich street, whence they will be immediately Rent Into camp. THE UNION DEFENCE COMMITTEE AND THE LINCOLN CAVALRY.

A conspiracy, not tho work of a day,but tbo result of years, of false, wicked aud traitorous machinations, has for Bcvcrnl months disturbed the peace of the State of Now York and of tho folecal Union. I is movements havo been marked by violence and fraud. Wlieruvur it has mauifestod itself it has disregarded tho rights of citizens* coerced them into the ranks of its armies and exercised an absoluto control over person and property, in utter deflunce o f the constitution and laws of tho land. Ambitious and designing men, disappointed in their personal alms . have been enabled, chtclly by misrepresenting the feelings of ono portion of tho country towards the other, to usurp and cKerciso a power which lias become not only tyrannical and oppressive in several states whose constitutional governments it bus temporarily suspended, hut dangerous to the entire Union; tho pretences originally held forth as a Justification for acts of lawlessness ana treason nave oecn lam usiao; mo intention<>i ma lenders of tbis wicked rebellion to destr< y tlio Union cemented by the blood of our forefathers is now fully manliest; und elated by on occidental success, they audaciously threaten the national capitol. As chief magistrate of tho State, it is my solemn duty to warn all good and loyal tnen of th? dangers to which our institutions nro exposed, and to urge upon litem the necessity of an earnest and zealous co njmration with the authorities of the State and general governments: of a cheerful contribution of their moans to support tno public credit, and of activo enrollment in tlic forces now being organized for tho defence of the Unkn; convinced that tho tranquility of tho country no wantonly disturbed can only bo restored bv tbo prompt and vigorous suppression of robollion rfnd treason, wherever they may appear. The representatives of the people of the United Slatoa lately convened in Congress at the call of a constitutionally elected IYcsidcnt, In view of tho perils which surround the Union, (tavo, by legislative enactments, provided for liberal supplies of men and means for the enforcement of the laws and have thus invited a hearty and zealous response on the |>url of several States. New York has never wavered in her devotion to the Union. Sito prizes it on account of the many blessings which all parts of tho country alike havo received from it; on account of the memory of her imtriot sons, by whoso blood it was purchased; and fop the inestimable benefit it confers upon tho present and secures to future generations. Her noble response to the call of tho President, In April last, was such as to prtls served to her tho proud titlo she Iior long'borne in the family of States. Another stage in tho great rebellion ho# boon reached, and tho government appreciating tho dangers now menacing it, appeals for aid. Tho whole country, the civilized world, now looks to tbo State of New York, let tho response bo worthy of her history, hot her answor go hack In full ranks of earnest men, w ho, justly valuing the magnitude of tho interests involved, temporarily relinquish their pursuits and prepare to meet the crisis.
