To day the Steamer Ruthven left for Galveston, with the cannon carriages for the Confederate States army at Galveston. James Wrigley arrived home from Houston on the cars. He & 67 other members of the Liberty Guards were sworn into the services of the Government for 6 months, to be stationed at Galveston. Business very brisk in the way of selling goods. Nothing doing on my house. weather changeable with prospect of rain.
