In performing this pleasant duty, I shall conform to the established custom of the day, governing suchoccasions : namely, brevitw able manner. At regular drill meeting of the Pad- dock Guards, held at their Hall on Mon day evening last, the following resolu tions were adopted: Resolved, That we recognize in A. S. Padpocck, an active, faithful and devoted Under the peculiar circumstances ex-; public officer; and an unflinching patriot, isting between thedonor and youselvcs, whose whole soul is in the cause of the Mr..Paddock, rentlemcn, has very nat-! Union. tirally watched with no small degree of anxiety and interest, your conduct and progress. He has been pleased to believe you in earnest in fitting and preparing yourselves for any and every emergency ; and that while organized -merely for home protection, you have I ee; equally attentive to regular drill, rs harts those upon the tented field. As - c-r.i'-ence, this course has proved an isctrvtive to rnanv to enter the crand ar- j 9 Resolved, That the thanks of this com pany are hereby tendered Mr. Paddock, for the munificent donation with which the silk flag presented in his behalf, was purchased. Resolved, That whatever may be his calling, or wherever his lot may be cast, he will ever have the well wishes of the Paddock Guards, Resolved, That Capt, Hill is hereby instructed to furnish Mr. Paddock with a fc;)' fj-'3' U":'ci.

Mat thews and mi; v of the privates formerly of your company, fcre j vv with General Hunter, occupying pK.'-.rrjt and honor able positions by reason of the rrcfki-.i.- cy-attaintd while commander and mom-' bers of the Paddock Guards. Admiring, therefore, your promptness, patriotism, Zealand loyalty. Mr. Paddock requests me to present ycu this flag, as a slight testimonial of his regard and respect for. and. confidence in you as soldiers. As ycu will observe.it is no gaudily arrang ed affair, for mere show. It is simply the stars and stripes ; the old flag of our fathers; the emblem of our nationality; the antitype cf which has never been trailed in the dust by others than traitors. They have done so of late, it is true; yet the dastardly act but endears it the more Vj true lovers of the Union; upholders of aj free government. That flag, guided and cheered our patriot ancestors ia se curing the liberties transmitted to us un Urnished, and under which we have so long lived, and prospered as has no other people on. God's footstool. .It has led cur armies to victory on many a battle- tield i it is to-day leading them in another struggle for national existence, and wher ever unfurled, even on what we regard as disloyal soil, the loyal, but hitherto down trodden inhabitants rejoice at its approach and fly, with open arms to receive it. It is ihs hope of the oppressed of every clime. Let it peyer be dishonored by you;. let no traitqrons hand soil a stripe, cr obliterate a star? In the lanrruace of the patriot of Ashland. "Let not the banner you have loved so long, be borne piece-meal o'er the distant sea ; torn, trampled under foot by a frenzied throng; divided; measured; parcelled cut; tamely surrendered up forever, to grati fy a soulless rout of traitors!" Although this particular flag has not been 4ivrove by maid and mother ; con secrated by their love ; blessed w ith their ttps ; with their kisses and their pray era" zs has been'60 frequently the case dur ing the present struggle, yet the ladies God bless them are here to-night, to id character to the occasion ; and will Resolved.
