JUST, AT LAST.
Our compliments aro due the Eagle for
its disposition at lengtb manifested to do
our county justice, as wilnosscth the fol
lowing extract from its issuo of tho 8th
Wo did, and still do, ridicule the
idea of raising one company but we said,
and still do say, that old Ottawa will be
youd doubt, entirely and patriotically
meet all demands upon her. She has ex
(ceded Kent county in tho amount of
money raised for bounties Kent county
being one of tho richest couutics of the
Stnto-and old Ottawa may well bo proud
of this. Sho has been liberal of men;
but unfortunately for Ottawa county, its
center of influence, Grand Haven, did not
possess enterprise and patriotic ardor
enough to start companies of its own,
thus compelling tho patriotic voluntcors
of the county to enlist in companies form
ing in other counties, and adding to the
reputation of Grand Itnpids and Kent
county. Now neither tho Eagle, or any
lw1v in this county is to blame that old
Ottawa gets a small share of tho honors.
She desorves a large 6haro; but Grand
Haven has, by its apathy in tho matter of
organizing companies, robbed tho county
of its rightful honors, and given them to
us. This is the plain, solf-ovidcnl truth,
for which no one in Kent county is ro
Kponsiblo. Ottawa has furnished, wo es
timate, nearly four hundred men. This
ought to give her four Captains, four
Lieutenants, a Major, Adjutant and Col
onel or Lieut. Colonel. The only reason
why sho has not obtained these oflicers is
because hor leading men did not ask for
them or appear disposed to serve. Will
the Xcws tell us who is to blamo for
" As to her present policy, wo think
that it is highly commendable in Ottawa
county to confino her recruits, so far as is
consistent with courtesy and policy, to
her own company ; but 6ho should start
enough companies to keep them all.
Two more companies ought, for her own
good, to bo started at once. If they are
not started, wo shall hear complaints
again, before long, that tho bravo boys of
Ottawa had to go abroad to hnu leaders.
"This is no reproach to Ottawa; but it
is a reproach to thoso " prominent citi
zens" who, tho yews says, arc just now
indulging in a "great and just indigna
tion toward tho Eagle." Ottawa coun
ty, in our opinion, is one of the most pa
triotic in tho valley. Tho masses of Ot
tawa aro full of patriotic enthusiasm; but
those " prominent citizens," with whom
tho yews editor appear to sympathize so
thorough!)', should take tho held and lend
the gallant men of hor borders. There
are two captaincies, at least, waiting for
them, nnd the men, wo will warrant, can
cnsilv be raised. If need be, this county
may help fill tho ranks. Only let tho
" prominent citizens " wake up. and start
tho organization, and wo assure our sen
sitive liltlo cotemporary that no petty and
despicable jealouies will bo exhibited in
this count-, but Kent will furnish all the
aid, in men, money, orators, and effort
she can sparo to nssist her neighbor.
" Ottawa ought to be represented in
the ficd officers of tho 21st regiment.-
If sho officers her ow n companies, as she
should, she ought to have at least one of
tho field officers of tho regiment. Will
Grand Haven select her candidates, set
set them at work to earn the positions
No finer truism could bo uttered than
is contained in tho first paragraph:
Old Ottawa will beyond doubt, entirely
and patriotically meet all demands upon
her." Yes, sho will do that every time.
In respect to our prominent citizens
seeking place, their patriotism docs not
seem to run in that direction. They aro
not seekers of positions, but war out of
pure motives of patriotism. Some of
our first citizens have enlisted in the
ranis, and their valor is known to tho
country, nnd wo have scores of others
rendy to take a similar position and bat
tle valiantly for tho good old flag and our
glorious Constitution, from tho prompt
ings of a puro and unselfish patriotism
just such men as our country needs nnd
must have, if sho is ever saved.
Good. Tho President seems equal to
tho emergency. Ho calls for 000,000
men they volunteer in tho almost in
crodibly brief period of throo weeks. Ho
calls for an additional 300,000, to bo fur
nished by draft, and miserable, cowardly
poltroons seek to evade the call by run
ning away sccediny. Dy proclamation
ho heads them off, and puts them in tho
very position, in tho mean time, which
they most dread, ordering them to be ar
rested at any and every point, whore they
. seek egress, and'" put through a course
of sprouts." Sorvinc 'cm richt. Wo
admire tho prompt, decisive action of the
Presidcut in this regard.
Tw o more days left for voluuleoriug.
While the lamp holds out to burn, etc."
What Shall be done with them t
It is painfully distressing to bo made
to realizo that we hare men in our coun
try who stand ready to turn their backs
upon our Government in its present emer
gency, aud leave it rather than fight in
its defenso, as is shown by tho 6tampedo
inaugurated immediately on the reception
of the order o(the President for drafting.
It is unpardonable and should find no
forgiveness this 6ido of the spirit world.
Wo would suggest l'lAt our Legislature,
at its next sitting, bo memorialized that
tho first subjoct under consideration for
legislation have reference to cowardly
sneaks who have loft our own Stato so as
to escape tho necessity of fighting for the
Government, whoso munificence and pro
tection they have long enjoyed, but who
now in its peril spit upon it and havo it
Let a law be passed forover prohibiting
thoir return, and let their property bo
confiscated for tho benefit of the State.
And then let tho Canadian Parliament
pass an act that all who thus sock refuge
within that Province shall bo drummed

death, and then bo buried withfaco down

A Good Yield of Wheat and How it
Messrs. Darns : As you liko to notico

and it yielded 36 bushels. I weighed

and found its weight 63 lbs. to tho bush

Mr. Barns: Thinking a fow items

acceptable to your readers, in these times
of war and civil commotion, I will cn
deavor to givo you a little iukling of tho
affairs of this part of tho country. And
ns the war and its prospects is tho excit
ing and absorbing topic of interest, nt tho
present time, go whero you will, East,
West, North or South, I will try to write
what will bo of interest to every patriot
and lover of his country.
To feel, understand and appreciate in
its true light, tho momentous importance
that this war has assumed in tho minds
of the people, it is necessary to travel and
see, and hear, for yourself. Ono thing is
everywhere manifest tho people aro bo
ginning to appreciate nnd feel the realities,
tho terrors and devastating influences of
a terrible and bloody war, and tho solemn
fact seems pressing homo to tho convic
tions of every thinker that tho breadth
nnd depth of this contest has not yet been
Ono thing is evident the masses havo
done believing that " Tho war is to closo
in ten days," "Tho Southern Army is
totally disorganized and destitute of pro
visions," and tho stern facts, though not
quite so rolishable, aro taking the place of
delusion and flattery. Tho truth is, we
aro cngagod in a war unparallolcd in its
effocts and iufluenco by any known in an
cient or modern history. We aro fight
ing an enemy bravo and cxpodier.t,
abounding in resources, determined, reso
Into, unyielding and unflinching, and re
solved to fight to tho bitter end. These
facts aro beginning to bo realized, and it
is well that it is so. It is well for tho
people to exclaim, in the language of
Patrick Henry, "Let us know the worst
and provido for it."
But, notwithstanding these ttern facts,
the sons of the North and East are gath
ering once more in their strength. New
York will do hor dut?. The roll of the
drum and tho cry M To Arms!" is heard
all over tho Stale. The cilizons are bold
in rousing war meetings in nearly every
town and village. The rich are pouring
out thoir treasures,- and the young men
aro rushing to the roscuo. The words are
everywhere heard, "Tho Constitution,
the Laws and the Government must bo
upheld, though tho world bo clothed in
sackcloth and ashos."
It may be, and quite likely will be tho
caso, mat jncw lone win uot nave tier
quota in tho field by the time required,
but it will not bo on account of an unwill
ingness of the peoplo, for the present is a
busy lime, and tho men aro needed in
tho harvest field, and tho lime is short
that tho Governor has allowed for tho
number to bo filled out, and ho has de
clared that if tho quota is not made out
by tho 18th inst., n draft will bo made
immediately. Somo of tho Regiments
aro already full, and a number of tho
counties aro doing moro than was allotted
to them. Chemung had her quota mado
out in teu days. St. Lawrence, Monroe,
Elmira and other counties aro doing al
most as well; but others aro not doing
what they should, and whether tho prompt
will overbalance the backward remains
yet to bo seen. But bo that ns it may,
tho men will bo raised promptly, and as
many moro if necessary. Thcro will bo

of tho good man there is an Indian sum-
mot moro beautiful than that of the sea
son, richer, sunnier, and moro sublime
than tho most glorious Indian summer
which tho world knows. It is the Indi
an summer of the soul. When the glow
of youth has departed, when the warmth
of middle age is gone, and tho buds and
blossoms of spring are changed to the
scar and yellow leaf, tho mind of tho good
man, still ripe and vigorous, relaxes its la
bors, and the memories of a well spent
life gush forth from their secret fountains,
enriching, rejoicing and fertilizing ; then
tho trustful resignation of the Uhristain
sheds nround a sweet and holy warmth;
and tho soul, assuming a heavenly luster,
is no longer restricted to the narrow con
fines of business, but soars far beyond
tho winter of hoary age and dwells sweet
ly and happily upon that bright spring
and summer which await him within the
gates of Paradise, evermore. Let us
strive for and look trustingly forward to
an Indian summer like this.
