Citizens' Oath.

--The citizens of Pensacola, Fla., held a public meeting recently, and appointed a Committee of Safety, to look after all the inhabitants. The Observer publishes the names of 524 citizens who have taken the following cath:

‘ ‘"I do most sincerely and solemnly swear before Almighty God, without mental reservation of any kind, that I will support and defend the Constitution of the Confederate States of America, and that I will in all things demean myself as a true and faithful citizen of the said Confederate States; and I do promise that I will endeavor to discover, and will report, any and every unfaithful person of whom I may obtain reliable intelligence. So holp me God."’
