B deserves the special patronage of our citi - zen on WednesJay next to their excursión to Put-in-Bay. lts raemberscan well demand it for the favors they have done the city, and especially for the assistance rendered on the Fourth of July last, which made the celebration on that day so successful. Aside from these views, the pride our people ought to have in this organization, right here in our midst as it is, is argument enough for liberal assistance at any time. They are exceedingly desirous of selling a thousand tickets for this excursión, but have determined to limit the number to this amount, so he who calis for the next ticket after the one thousand will have to stay at home. This arrangement will prevent a rush and crowding, insuring the convenience and enjoyment of all. The stenmer Jay Cooke is one of the most commodious and pleasant of the river steamers, and for the further pleasure of its passengers it will be accompanied by the Occidental band of Detroit. The profits of the excursión will be devoted to purchasing new uniforms which shall rival thosé of the best dressed companies in the State; also to establishing a drum corps, which the company stands in need of. It is not expected that enough will be raised at present to carry out these plans, but at least a nucleus can be formed, which will grow some time to the requisite dimensions. Let us help them make a beginning. The expenses of the trip have been placee at very low figures, and a plea of want o funds can hardly excuse any from going. A day can hardly be spent in pleasure to greate advantage thn to go to Put-in-Bay nex Wednesday. Remember the 130 müe rid on the water on a beautiful steamer. Re member, too, that the train leaves the city a 6:28 in the morning, necessitating an early I breakfast and active morementson your part
