PROCLAMATION.

The undersigned, by order of Major- General Wright, assumes command of Cincinnati, Covington, and Newport. It is but fair to inform the citizens that an active, daring, and powerful enemy threatens them with every consequence of war, yet the cities must be defended and their inhabitants must assist in the prparation. Patriotism, duty, honor, and self- preservation call them tothe labor, and it must be performed equally by all classes.
