Patriotic ladies.--In Clinton County, Ohio, there is a certain township, Richland, which has not raised a very large crop of patriotic young men, we should judge, from the proceedings of a meeting of irate females held there last week. It was stated that not more than two volunteers had been furnished by the township, and the resolutions adopted and the speeches made at the meeting referred to, not only called the patriotism but the courage of the men of Richland in question. So stung were the female population by the disgraceful and unmasculine spirit manifested by the young men, especially, that seven young ladies--Miss Rachael Howe, Miss Mary Bernard, Miss Elizabeth Fristo, Miss Jennie Rowe, Miss Mary C. Clement, Miss Julia Creden, Miss Hannah McKinney--stepped forward and requested to have their names enrolled as volunteers in defence of their country and their rights, and said, as soon as they could be furnished with uniforms, they would leave their clothing to the young men, who lacked the manliness to defend the flag of their country when it was assailed.
