In Camp - Capt. Mills of Dresden in this county, has raised a full Company of volunteers for the war. They have been assigned to the 16th Regiment and are now at Wooster, Ohio. Capt. Bainter and Capt. Hirst are both raising Companies, the former has sixty men enrolled. They will doubtless be assigned to Col. Gilbert's regiment, which will be organized here in a few days.

Appointed - Dr. Samuel C. Mendenhall of Frazeysburg, and Dr. Hood of Dresden in this county, have passed their examinations and been appointed surgeons in the army. We have known Dr. Mendenhall for years and feel assured no better appointment could have been made, so far as medical knowledge and skill is concerned.

More Troops - Capt. Hirst of Dresden arrived here this morning with sixty of his men for Colonel Pond's Regiment, now nearly full at Camp Goddard. He has sufficient number of men enrolled to make the full complement, and will bring the others in a few days. Good for Dresden.
