Initially Atticus is angry that Jem refuses to leave. This is mostly because he is concerned for his (and Scout and Dill's) safety. There is certainly a subtext here that says Atticus is very proud of his boy. Atticus's tone when the men leave is more of admiration for his kids rather than admonishment.
