  • Notes 
    • The Galt Reporter says a rumour is current that a young man named Walter Laidlaw, who lately left Galt, and had been residing, for some time in Texas, was killed there shortly after the war broke out. It is said that he refused to enlist under the southern banner, and was stabbed for refusing.
