Most Praiseworthy. Our Holland
citizens of the " Colony " aro coming up
nobly to tho rescue We aro informoJi
from the most credible sources, that the
citizens of the two townships of Holland
and Zecland, in their liberality, have con
tributed $0,000 bounty to volunteers, nnd
that 150 havo volunteered to sustain the
good old flag. In the space of twenty
four hours, in Zcclaod alone, $3,300 wero
pledged and 32 volunteers secured. Ono
farmer alone, Mr. Yntema, contributing
$250, and others, of their means, very
liberally. Wo feel assured our adopted
citizens will do their wholo duly toward
tho Government that has so generously
opened its arms to receive them, and will,
by no means, turn their back upon her in
tho day of her calamity.
The Union, our now cotomporary,
made its first appcaranco on Monday. It
is a good sized sheet, very neat nnd tasty
in its mechanical execution, Republican
politically, and no doubt will prove acccp
tablo to most of our citizens.
We like its salutatory address nnd fully
accord with it in its promise of unfiinch-
support of tho Government, its purposo
to urgo an unflinching and vigorous pros
ecution of tho war, at any and every cost
and sacrifice, " until tho last vestige of re
bellion is swept away," nnd "no com
promise with armed traitors."
Wo assuro tho Union it has our hearty
co operation, in all its efforts to bring
about tho grand results set forth, as re
gards tho rescue and perpetuity of our
glorious country, and will find us so far
an unflinching ally, and wo trust mutual
aids in every good and perfect work.
