(Official) Chakli'.h W.Dahli.xo, A. D. C.
At tho pre-ent date, July 26, It Is understood
that these tui'iiia, except two regiments, hereto
fore mustered In, am withheld from service, by
i.rder of the Governor of New York, in conse
quence of an objection to a decision of tho Pro
vost Marshal-General, that these militiamen are
net, by reason of their being mustered in'O tho
service, exempted from the draft ordered to take
place the 6th day of September next, and from
time to time thereafter, until tho quotas required
shall be tilled.
That the objection raised by the Governor of
New York is purely theoretical, and may never
become of the least practicable importance, is ap
parent from the following conslduiati ins:
Although it iaclear that by the ldih sccdon of tho
act of February 24, 1861, such as are rejected as
physically or mentally unfit for the service, all
persoDS actually In the military or naval service
of the United States at the time of the draft, und
all persons who have jerved in thu military or
naval service two years during the present war,
nnil have been honorably discharged therefrom,
will be exempted from the draft, vet the question
of exemption of the hundred days' mi itia of
New York will notarise, and no claim for such
exepipticn can he made under tho act, unless the
soldier claiming the exemption shall bo actually
iu the militiiry service of tho United States at the
time of the draft.
Questions of exemption by reason of mental
or physical nniimess, of age, of two years' ser
vice and honorable discbarge therefrom, or ex
emption of being In the service, must be settled
according to the state of facts at the time when
the questions are to be decided.
The militia of New Y'ork having been called to
meet an tmergtney for a term not exceeding 100
days, may ail be discharged from service before
the draft shall actually take place; they may be
discharged at any time by the President, and ho
is nut bound to retain their services any longer
than the public necessity requires them.
If the lira It ordered on the 5lh of September
shuuld be postponed, or not completed on that
day, no question of exemption can arise, except
when tho person claiming exemption is in the
military service of the United States at the time
when he shall be personal lv drafted.
No draft will tie required of New York, If that
State shall (ill Its quota with volunteers. Hence
for tli is reason the question may be purely a
theoretical one. So also it will be borno in mind
the exemption from draft is a personal privilege
to be nscd by and for the benefit only or the per
ron drafted ; he may prefer to waive his exemp
tion, and to remain in the service. The question
of tbe right of exemption arises only between the
Government of the United Stales and the indi
The statement of the law by General Sandford
In tbe General Orders above cited, is founded 011
a uibappreuension of the meaning of the statute.
It is erroneous to say " that the members of
those regiments now mustered on duty, when
mustered Into service by tbe United States, for
oue hundred days, will be exempted from tho
draft v-bichlstobe made in September neat."
Hut by the true construction of the act, those per
sons only who shall bo actually In the service of
tho Ui.lttd Status at tbe time when their respec
tive numcs shall be drafted, will be exempted
