In the present excited state of the public mind it is important that no opportunity should be afforded for any disorder. All peaceable citizens are therefore expected to abstain from gathering in crowds, and to pursue their usual occupations, in order that the constituted authorities may maintain the peace of the city without difficulty or confusion.

WM. H. B. FUSSELBAUGH, President Board of Police.
HARRY GILMORE, JAMES R. HERBERT, Commissioners of Police.
