ition and gave them clearly to understand that any breach by them of the neutrality laws would be instantly followed by the arrest of every one of them. Owing to these prompt and energetic measures, it became evident to the Liberators of Ireland, as they styled themselves, that any hostile demonstration on their part would be defeated, and in a short time their forces gradually melted away and disappeared from that part of the country. While on this tour of duty General Meade visited Calais, Maine. Here, as well as at Eastport, he had reason to be gratified at the honorable reception accorded him by the citizens. The general here availed himself of being in the vicinity to pay his respects to his friend, Major-General Sir Hastings Doyle, of the British Army, who was in command of the lower provinces of Canada, and in that capacity watching the movements of the proposed invaders.

o which they were forced made the idea of surrender for a moment tolerable to the regiment. If resistance had been at all available, it would have been made. The action in which they were taken was the 32nd action in which this splendid regiment had been engaged since its first organization.

mensurate with the grandeur of the Union armies over the rebel hordes, and the appreciation felt by the people of this city and the country at the fact of the re-occupation of Charleston by our loyal brothers in arms, together with the fact that the flag of our country again floats over the walls of Fort Sumter, should be made apparent in a fitting manner. It was voted to suspend business on the 4th of March next, and that the business community and people of the whole country from Calais, Maine, to San Francisco, California, be requested to unite in a fitting demonstration of joy on that day. The Boards of Trade and Chambers of Commerce of the principal cities of the Union, including San Francisco, have signified their co-operation in this patriotic movement, and the 4th of March will, undoubtedly, be observed through-out the land as a day of jubilation and as the people's Union holiday.
