Thirteen hundred dollars was subscribed on the spot and they have now about two thousand. Many volunteers were annexed to Major Wood's Company, who has completed his list and starts to- morrow. The meeting was addressed by 3. D. McMastcrs and Jessy Gay of Pittsburgh. Hteettag at Centre. A large Union Meeting was held at the Town Hall, in Lisbon May 2. Dr. Woos- ter Carpenter, Chairman and C. W. Ames- worth Becetaey. Patriotic speeches were made by K. W. Judson, Rev. M. L. Eastman, £. W. Wheeler, Mr. Ray, and others. The sum of 1200, was subedited to aid the fami- lies and friends of Volunteers, and Wm. Briggs, Isaac G. Stocking, David G. Lytle, Samuel Fulton, appointed a committee to distribute the sum. G. V. Flack, John Me. Bryde, Wm. H. Raymond, James Baily, John A. Craig, Theodore Bush, An- drew O'Neil, Mason L. Davis, Baron Briggs, Samuel Fulton, A. Fulton, and John Hodges, were appointed a committee to raise more funds and get volunteers. Several patriotic songs were sung, and much enthusiasm prevailed tliroughout the meeting and closed with many cheers. Adjounded to meet at the Town Hall, Monday afternoon May 6. at 8 P. M. The meeting met pursuant to adjourn- ment. John A. Craig was chosen Chair- man and Cephus W. Ainsworth was ap- pointed Secretary. The meeting then proceeded to organize a permanent So- ciety, to be called the Lisbon Volunteer Aid Society. A motion was made and carried that the Board of Officers shall consist of a President, Secretary and Treasurer. Ira Wallace was elected Pres- ident, Robert Scott chosen Secretary and Win. H. Reynolds appointed Treasurer. Patriotic remarks were made by many that were present, and the meeting ad- journed to meet at the Town Hall on Sat- urday, Junt? 7th, at one o'clock P. M., or previous to that should the committee deem it practical. C. W. AIN0WORTU, Secretary. Adams, J«flfer»on Conntjr. While at Adams a few days since, we were invited to visit the Machine Shop and Foundry owned and operated by Messrs. Hoi man, Rich & Co. The build- ing formerly occupied by these gentlemen was burned in the disastrous fire of last fall. They have lately purchased the ground and buildings formerly owned by the \ Adams Manufacturing Co., 11 and are now fitting them up for building all kinds of Machinery and Mill Gearing. We ntiticed several Water Wheels of their manufacture, the invention of Mr. Holman, one of the firm. Three sizes of these wheels are working in their build- ings, and from what we saw should judge they were among the most powerful wheels known. They are a center dis- charge wheel, and are afforded cheap.— Mechanics would probably do well to ex- amine them. CHATEAUQAY. At a meeting of the Citizens of the town of Chateaugay held at Beman's Hall, May 1st., pursuant to puplic notice, for the pur pose of making arrangements to raise* a fund to provide for and aid the families of volunteers to defend the Union and en- force the laws, pursuant to the call of the President of the United States. A. S. Bryant was called to the chair, E. A. Eeeler, was appointed Secretary, A. 8. Bryant, John Roberts, and S. S. Clark, Jr., was appointed a committee to obtain subscriptions to the fund for the support of the families of volunteers. The meet- ing also appointed E. A. Keeler a com- mittee to obtain the signatuses of persons wishing to enroll their names as members of a company to be formed in said town, for the defense of the Union, and to be ready to report themselves for duty when- ever called upon. The meeting then adjournd to meet at the same place on Tuesday evening next at 7 o'clock P. M. On motion it was re- solved, that the proceedings be published in the daily \ ADVANCE,\ A. S. BRYANT, Chairman. EDGAR. A. KRKLKK, Secretary. After the meeting adjourned, a sub- scription was taken up and $505 was sub- scribed, though the attendance was small on account of the short notice given, The Committee appointed by the meeting have gone to work, and on Thursday when the Committee are to report, it is expected that at least $2,000 will be subscribed in this town for the benefit rf the families of those who have volunteered to defend the flag of our Union. Much enthusiasm pre- vailed, and the enlistment roll Ijas now (TKursday morning) reached eighteen. On Tuesday morning the residents of this village raised the sum of $55 for the use of the members of the Franklin Coun- ty Company residing in the Town of Chateaugay. May S, DM. The second Volunteer Company formed at this place, started to-day for Albany, via Northern Railroad. A noble com- pany they are, too, being all vigorous, so- ber intellectual young men who believe the American Government to be worth fighting for, and that even death ii better than the dishonor of the national flag. Although notice was given only last evening that they would leave to-day there were tome three thousand people in attendance. A beautiful silk banner in- scribed \ God defend the right\ was pre- sented to the company by the ladies of our Village. The presentation was made by H. L. Knowlet, Esq., in an ad- dress full of deep feeling and noble pat- riotism. Capt J. C. Gilmour accepted the symbol in a manly speech, which, al- though short, satisfied the parents and friends of the gallant fellows that be is fitted for his position, and is a man in whose care they may safely trust their friends and sons. A national anthem was then sung by the Phil-Harmonic So ciety, making our Village common ring. Rev. Mr. Riggs made an impressive ap- peal to God in behalf of our country, and of those now leaving us in her defence, and the venerable Dr. Plumb, of 8t. Law- rence Academy, many of whose students were in the ranks, gave them the parting word. The company was then escorted to the cars in a procession conducted by E. W. Foster, Esq., consisting of the Potsdam Band, Fire Department in full, force, stu- dents of the Academy, citizens and friends accompanied by martial music. At the cars each officer called his squad and each man answered to bis name and took his place. The train rolled away, with banners flying and music beating, followed by cheer after cheer as long as it could be seen. This company was ex- amined find accepted, the officers receiv- ing their commissions adH orders to move before leaving here. The same was the case with Company No. 1 from tab place. Company No. 3 has reached some 00 in number, and has now gone to Bicknell- ville, where many of them reside, and will take the cars at Knapp's Station 1 . We hrfve not the knack of sending off incomplete companies very fast in the back part of the County, but if you will call on the 8d Assembly District for men to fill up Ogdensburgh Companies No. 1 2, or even $, they can be supplied on short notice. The best spirit has prevailed among our volunteers. F. W. Usher, who has been absent from home for some time, arriving after the company was formed, offered $20 to any man of Company No. 2 for his place in the ranks. No man would yield his chance for the money. He finally made an arrangement by which he went with the company. Now, Mr. Editor, please permit me a word more. St. Lawrence is sending company after company; we hear of ten formed and forming. Cannot there be a St. Lawrence Regiment? Would not every son of the County fight better un- der her distinct banner ? Is it good policy for men serving to place themselves un- der fegimental officers who are to have no further connection with them than while the war lasts? Is it not due to our noble County that she shall not scatter her strength among half-a-dozen regi- ments ? St. Lawrence speaks for herself in her census, in her tax roll, in her majorities, by her sons in official positions in State and nation, and by her sons in all occu- pations and callings at home and through- out the West. Let; her men moving to- wards the South march together, and bear her name and maintain her honor. Yours, X. L. CANTON. . The Start and Stripes are waving from almost every place of business in town, and the sentiment that the glorious old Flag of our Union must be present at any and all hazards is nearly universal. A call for a meeting to take action in view of the present alarming state of af- fairs has been circulated to-day, and nu- merously signed by the leading men of all parties; in fact we fcnow of only two or three who refused to sign it. We would give their names, but dislike to give them so much notoriety; we presume, however, posterity will place them betide of Judat hcariot, Benedict Arnold, Aaron Burr, and John 0. Calhoun, although we are satisfied the Arnolds and Ctihouni will not feel particularly flattered by the asso- ciation. The fact that we have now and then a man, or rather a thing in the shape of a man, who deaertt the flag under which he was bora shows conclusively that with the demise of the traitors above named the nee of traitors did not become extinct, but their principles, wicked and damnable as they were, find even now a resting-place in hearts equally corrupt and treasonable as were theirs; and the seed by them sown hat found a fertile soil and reached a luxuriant growth. If, however, men want the infamous place in history now occupied by the Judases, Arnolds and Calhouns, all they have to do is to follow their example, and, as true as God is just, coming history will assign them their position. We see here many good and true men from the towns of Pierpont, Colton, Rus- sell, Edwards and Hermon, all of whom are for the Constitution as it is, instead of the modern perversions of it—for the Start and Stripes, instead of a Palmetto rag—and for the enforcement of the Fed- eral laws against the treasonable designs of Jeff Davis and his perjured crew. Our country is truly in great peril, but we have seen perilous times before, and in all such times God has prospered the right and He will do so now. CSATKAU6AY. The bill to provide for the appointment of a Commissioner of Deeds in the town of Chateaugay passed the Assembly on the 11th irfst., and is now a law. Wm. H. H. Sunderlin of this town is a member of the 7th Massachusetts regi- ment, and is now in Washington with that regiment Egbert Copps of this town has joined one of the New-Hampshire regiments now forming at Manchester. The citizens of this Village yesterday subscribed $25, to be expended in the purchase of a Colt's revolver, to be pre- sented to Lieut. M. E. Roberts of the Franklin County Company. Lieut. Rob- erts is a native of this towfc. It is expect- ed that the company will start for Albany this week. With the expiration of the days of grace granted to the traitors, the Admin- istration will commence vigorous and ef- fective measures. It is understood that a strong force of Pennsylvanians, under command of Gen. Patterson, will advance in two columns 10,000 strong through Maryland, on down the Northern Cen- tral and the other the Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad. The first demonstra- tion will probably be made upon \Vir- ginia, and it is believed that the Govern- ment intends to retake Norfolk with the Navy Yard at the earliest possible mo- ment, and destroy the rebel batteries, which are now quite numerous on the Potomac. The detachment detailed to this duty is thought to be composed of Massachusetts men under General Butler, and is probably now under way. After the subjugation of Virginia the most salient point in the Southern Confed- eracy, will be the State of fjouisiana.— Depending as she does upon the products of her plantations, it will require only a short blockade to bring her deluded citizens to a realizing sense of their actual position. A recent letter from New-Or- leans states that the people are nearly equally divided upon the question of Se- cession, and that a vigorous policy on the part of the Government would strengthen and develope the Union Sentiment to such a degree that the State could be brought back almost without the firing of a gun. It is well known that the ordinance of Se- cession was passed only by the greatest exertions accompanied with trickery and fraud, and that it is now nearly impos- ble to raise a single regiment, even after a resort to the most forcible measures. Louisiana may sympathise deeply with her sister States of the Gulf; but her inter- est leads her to look to the action of the States situated on the Mississippi and Ohio, and it will be with extreme reluct- ance that she will take up arms without their cooperation. The subjugation of Louisiana will have the effect to crush Secession in Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee, and with, the traitors thus fenced in the existanoe of treason cannot be otherwise than brief.
