Resignation and appointment.
--Dr. F. W. Roddey
of Company F, of the 1st Regiment, having resigned his position, the members, at a late meeting, unanimously selected Dr. Peter Lyons
in his stead.
The latter having entirely recovered from a severe injury received several months since, is in a condition to do effectual service should occasion arise.
Contributing members of Company ‘"F"’ are informed that, to be exempt from militia fines for the year 1861, they must renew their certificates of membership before the Spring
We make this announcement at the request of Capt. Cary
, who also requests us to state that certificates, properly signed, can be had upon application to any active member of his company.
As this mode of getting rid of militia mustering is cheaper than paying the fines, and at the same time encourages our volunteers, paying our money here at home, instead of into the treasury of the State
, to be disbursed amongst the militia at large, we believe our citizens will generally adopt it, not only those who were contributing members of companies last year, but those who have never heretofore contributed.
