A patriotic example.

--Parke Arnold, Esq., of Coweta county, has uniformed an entire company of soldiers from Palmetto at his own expense — furnishing everything, including swords. He took his own overseer, (a very tall man,) and made him color-bearer of the company. He has two thousand one hundred acres planted in cotton, and says that, after deducting his expenses and enough for ordinary uses, he will subscribe the balance to the Government; and, besides, will give fifty thousand dollars for the victory that wins our independence.

Mr. Arnold is one of those dear oppressed Union men for whose relief Lincoln is sending an army down South.--Athens Confederacy.
