--Now is the time — the most fitting and pressing that has ever been known to us — for our wealthy citizens, whose all is at stake in the approaching struggle, to use the means and appliances which a beneficent. Providence has given in equipping and providing for the men upon whose stout hearts and strong arms they must rely for succor from the invader.
