By the President. J. P. BENJAMIN,
Sec'y of State
The Rebel Conscription,
Jefferson Davis, by the authority
of an act of the rebel Congress, has
called into military service of the Con
federacy all white men between the
ages of eighteen and forty-five years,
not legally exempt, residing in the
Southern states. These men are or
dered to forthwith repair to the con
script camps, on pain of punishment
as deserters. By this proclamation
the entire able-bodied population of
the rebel - Stu tjs is converted into an
army, and the whole South transform
ed into a camp. The terms of the or
der are peremptory; it states that "the
necessities of the public defence re
quire that every man capable of bear
arms, between the ages aforesaid,
should now be called out to do his du
ty in the defence of his country, and
in driving back the invaders now with
in the limits of the Confederacy."—
The order, and the reason for the or
der, are full.of important suggestions,
and of these not the least interesting
is the difference between the Federal
draft and the rebel conscription. If
the call by our Government for a small
part of the population is sufficient
cause for a riot, surely this wholesale
conscription in the South is reason for
a counter revolution. In the North,
every man has an• equal chance of es
caping from the draft; in the South,
alt, but the few who are by infirmity
or other disabilities exempt, are forced
into the ranks of the army. What
hardships does the Federal draft inflict
upon the people, which can be for a
moment compared with the miseries '
the South must endure when this or
tier is enforced? Yet the rioters in N.
York, with astonishing effrontery or
ignorance, cheered Jefferson Davis.-
171 thus applauding they condemned
themselves. Those means for recruit
ing an army, which the United States
uses only in the most moderate de
gree, the rebel Government employs
to a terrible degree. With far more
kindness and justice to the people than
our State militia laws embody, the na
tional act exempts all poor men who
have widowed mothers, aged and in
firm parents, motherless infant chil
dren, or fatherless young brothers and
sisters dependent on their labor 'for
support. The provisions of this net
deal with all possible tenderness with
the people. Is anything like this evi
dent in the provisions of the rebel con
scription, or in this - emphatic order of
the rebel Government? Every Mall is
at once swept away into the rebel
camps of the rebellion; not one can
escape the all-embracing summons.
By this fearful conscription we may
measure the importance of our recent
victories. Grant, and Meade, and
Banks must have, indeed, struck migh
ty blows, when the monster answers
with this cry of pain. Ordinary vic
tories do not have such extraordinary
results. It is not by an army that
Jefferson Davis hopes to resist us, but
by a people. It is only by the aid o
every man in the Slaves States, who
is capable of bearing arms, that our
triumphant armies can possibly be dri
ven back. Is it, then, easy to over-es
timate the value of the capture of
Vicksburg or Port _Hudson ! Of the
bloodless triumph over the fugitive ar
mies of Bragg? Can we rejoice too
much in those magnifieant battles in
which the Army of the Potomac hurl
ed back the veteran soldiers, the best
and bravest soldiers of the South ?
When we read in Southern journals,
and in Northern newspapers which
echo Southern boasts, that these victo
ries are but superficial successes, which
!MVO 710 permanent effect on the war,
we can answer them by the words of
the rebel leader. Would superficial
successes have such profound results?
Would victories without permanent of
force a conscription of every fight
ing man the enemy can control
Jefferson Davis has issued from
Richmond a proclamation of
He has confessed, in the hearing of the
world, the desperate condition of his
toiling cause. Ile has confessed the
overwhelming might of the United
States. Not to meet the three hun
dred thousand men our Government
has called to arms, does he summon
the entire fighting population of the
South, butt to meet our armies already
in the field, the "invaders now within
the limits of the confederacy." What
could he do where he answered by a
similar measure'? With but a part of
its power, the Government has forc
ed the rebellion to use its whole
strength. Army after army has fail
ed the rebellion; city after city; State
following State, have been wrested
from its hold, and, lastly, we have torn
from it the g reat river of the West.—
Driven to the last extremity, the re.
hellion has called out its reserve.—
"The only salvation of the Southern
Confederacy," says the Richmond En
quirer, "is in calling out a levy en
masse, and the application of martial
law to the Ivhole country as in a state
of siege." If this be the only hope,
and that it is the President of' the Con
federacy himself confesses, then there
is no hope worthy of the name. For
it is absolutely Impossible that this
measure can be enforced; by conscrip
tion the rebel Government has already
exhausted the South, and: though it
I may order the creation of armies, it
cannot create them. Glendower may
summon spirits from the vasty deep,
but will they come? No country has
ever yet placed its entire fighting pop
ulation in the field, and granting the
spirit and resolution of the rebels to
be all their fondest friend would wish,
they cannot accomplish impossibilities.
Nor will time be granted them to
achieve even the little which might be
possible had they a few months to or
ganize the few men who have thus far
taken no active part in the war. Had
Jefferson Davis announced in plain
words that the rebellion is now con
centrating all its energies for the death
struggle, he could have said little more
than this proclamation rev( ds to the
world. The great and deeisk e victo
ry is near. AN the terrible riots in
New York are now mere matters of
yesterday, soon to be remembered as
men remember an ugly dream, so this
greater riot will meet as inglorious a
fate. One cause created the riot and
the rebellion, and each was equally an
enemy to Freedom and Law; the
Power which crushed the'lesser foe is
able to subdue the greater, and the
conquest will be lasting proof of the

The Exemption Clause—Gov. Sey-
The New York Tribune says: "The
unthinking multitude who, last week,
raveged this city with pillage, c-nfla
gration, and murder, have, perhaps,
been misled by inch who know that
neither the draft nor the clause in
question is open to any reasonable
objection. They have used the $3OO
provision to inflame the poor against
the rich, not because they thought it
unjust, but that they might excite an
insurrection to further their own polit
ical and personal ambition. Horatio
Seymour, and Horatio Seymour's or
gans, have resorted to this pretext in
the hope that they might, prevent any
reinforcements of the armies of the
Union, knowing that a Government
without soldiers in a time of war has
no alternative but to make peace—
peace, however disgraceful or howev
er disastrous, they care not, so long as
it restored themselves and their South
ern allies to power—pence, though it
might be by the sacrifice of the brave
men who, without waiting to be draft
ed, have volunteered to defend their
country in the field. And hero is proof.
On the sth of May last, only two
months and a half ago, the Legislature
passed an act to amend "an act (which
is in effect a draft for a possible con
tingency) for the enrollment of the
militia, the organization and discipline
of the National Guard of the State of
New York, and for the public defence,"
and the oth article of these amend
ments is as follows:
Sac. 0. Add at the end of section
300 of this aet as follows: Any person
so drafted who may be a member of
any religious denomination whatever,
or from scruples of cor.science may be
averse to bearing arms, shall be excus
ed from said draft on payment to the
Clerk of the County by whom such
draft is made THE sum op THREE
HUNDRED DOLLARS, to be by said
County Clerk paid to the Comptroller
of the State, to be applied to the pur
poses mentioned in this act.
And to this act Horatio Seymour
gave his approval, and affixed his name
as Governor of the State! With just
as much reason could it he said that
this act of the State, which Horatio
ASeymour made a law ,
is an invidious
distinction between the Quaker and
the Catholic, as that the act of the
United States favors the rich at the
expense of the poor. To the act of
the State, enrolling the citizens,_ with
an exemption fee for a certain class of
$3OO, be gives his approval ; to the act
of the United States, enrolling the eit
zens, with an exemption fee for a cer
tain class of $3OO, he sanctions oppo
sition by his example, addressing those
who make it a pretext for insurrection
as his "noble-hearted friends!" Are
there any so blind that they cannot
see; so deaf that they cannot hear?
WHAT IRISH SOLDIERS MINK.—The
following is an extract from a letter
from an officer in Corcoran's brigade,
showing the feeling existing in the ar
my in relation to the . riots in N. York :
"In the papers of the 14th we got ter
rible accounts of the riots and mob
law in New York. New York lies
heretofore been so law-abiding that
can hardly realize the scenes of revo
lution, and bloodshed there enacted.—
The army look at it with grief—it is
litterly a fire in our rear. Is the coun
try worth preserving if its citizens at
home turn against it ?"

The New Albany (Ind.) Ledger of

Bickley, supposed to be the originator
of the order of the Knights of the Gol
