The Secretary of the Treasury may rest satisfied that Mecklenburg will do her duty in this matter as promptly and freely as she has in furnishing largely over her quota of men for the army.
Out of a white population of 6,777, this county has sent into the field upwards of seven hundred men.
The ninth company has been organized, and is now encamped at Sandy Fork.
Camillus Overby is Captain, Balley Williamson 1st Lieutenant, Henry Wood, Jr., 2d Lieutenant, and Ben Williamson 3d Lieutenant.
Captain R. Y. Overby has shown great liberality in getting up this company for his son; he does not stop to calculate dollars and cents in such a crisis as this.
Mr. Henry Wood, Sr., also worked hard to raise this company.
He has three sons in the army--one a Captain in the 38th (Edmund's) Regiment, one a 2d Lieutenant in Finley's Clarksville Blues, (now at Jamestown,) and the other 2d Lieutenant in the above company, as stated.
Expectation is on tip-top here.
