in order to present to the Press of Georgia Gov. BROWN’s decision in regard to
the State Press, under his late call.
The ____ dispatch was received from the Press of Columbus:
“Shall the Press of this
city be suspended, and its members report for duty at Macon?”

for that purpose is required to report for militia duty.
