PREAMBLE AND RESOLUTIONS:

Whereas, during the late difficulty between the State of Ohio and the Territory of Michigan, at the time when General Brown came to Toledo with his band of volunteer desperadoes, after committing sundry dastardly acts, and making numerous insulting expressions, to crown all, caused the Ohio flag, then floating in the air, to be taken down and tied to a horse's tail, and paraded through the streets—the ladies of Toledo, consisting of Mrs. Goodsell, Mrs. Danields, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Spaulding, Miss Dairs, and Miss Stickney, from pride for the honor of Ohio, and in detestation of an act so mean in its conception, and so cowardly in execution, immediately caused to be made, painted, and hoisted in the same place, another flag, far more splendid in execution. The unexampled meanness of the act, perpetrated under circumstances that could create no other impression than that of coming from a mind of the most despicable kind, when resented by the overpowering flow of detestation proceeding from the tenderness of female character, ought to award to such females encomiums of the highest order. They have sustained the honor of Ohio, at a time too, when agitated by a sorrowful feeling for the unrighteous, inquisitorial treatment of their families and friends; and in consideration of which, the Legislature, in behalf of the State, tender, by a yote, their warmest thanks—assuring them, that a deed actuated by so much virtue and magnanimity, shall never be forgotten: Therefore,

Resolved by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, That for the patriotism and magnanimity manifested by the ladies at Toledo, in making and hoisting a new flag of Ohio, when the former was torn down and treated with contempt by an officer of Michigan, deserves, and the thanks of the members of this General Assembly are hereby tendered to them.

Resolved, That a fund of one hundred dollars be raised, by individual contribution of the members of this General Assembly, for the purpose of procuring a silk dress for each,, or some other token of our approbation and admiration of their heroic and patriotic virtue, on that occasion.

Resolved, That the Speaker of each branch of this General Assembly appoint one person to receive this contribution, and present the same to the females aforesaid.
