The formation of regiments bay of giving advice to those who sought it, and in allaying the excitement in Cincinnati. About this time I received telegrams from friends in New York informing me ania to see what was best to be done. At the request of several gentlemen of Cincinnati I stopped at Columbus to give Gov.
