THE 7AY TO BO IT.
The conscription law in a great measure
failing to accomplish the object for which it
waa designed, (the filling up of the army),
on account of the greater number of those
who are drafted paying the three hundred
dollars cammutation, the question arises
How is the Army to be kept up? An asso
ciation of loyal men in New-York, seeming
ly, hare hit upon a remedy, which promises
to accomplish all that can be desired by the
most earnest patriot towards furnishing a
steady and constant accession of recruits to
tak the places of those brave men who
have fallen in battle or been disabled by dis
ease or wounds. The plan is as follows: A
number of the most influential citizens of
the city of New-York, Grinnell, Spaulding,
Roosevelt, and others, most of them exempt
from the draft, have organized for the pur
pose of placing fighting representatives in
. the field. They have their Recruiting
Rooms and are now obtaining men at 400
each. The Association is increasing in num
bers and influence, and already has forward
ed a large number of enlisted men to the
field, and every day adds to the popularity
and success of the scheme. Ere long every
loyal man in the great Metropolis without
reference to age or ether claims for exemp
tion from military duty, will be found en
rolled in this patriotic Association. If this
plan, on a sure ba.i, be ai once and gener
ally adopted and proclaimed in our lare ci
ties, a corps tT armee of 50,000 men could
be raised in less than sixty days. Let but
one-half the zeal and patriotic exertion be
displayed in this behalf which has been re
cently evoked by the Sanitary and Christian
Commissions, and our army will be main
tained in its integrity and numbers. These
Recruiting Associations in every district,
town and city of the free North will com
mend themselves at once to public favor and
supercede the old Board of Enrolment in
furnishing the muscle an ! sinew required by
the Nation in this crisis of her fate.
Official Statement of the National Debt.
As the Copperhead papers are continual
ly misrepresenting the amount of our Nation
al Debt, the following official statement will
be read with interest ;
In answer to a resolution of the House,
the Secretary of the Treasury furnishes a
statement of the public debt of the United
States up to June 14, 1864, the totals of
which are as follows :
Debt bearing intr'st in coin, . $837,941,001
Debt bearing interest in lawful
Debt on which interest has ceased, 370.170
Debt bearing no interest. . . 501,383,104
The annual interest in coin i50.823,672
45, in lawful money. S20.876,057 70. Total
interest, $71,699,730 15.
The ten-forty bonds amount to $70,239,
250 ; the three year thirty per cent, notes
to $118,577,950; United States notes out
standing to $432,041,330 ; fractional cur
rency outstanding to $21,031,918 85. The
remainder of the debt bearing no interest
consists mainly of unpaid requisitions.

. A dispatch from the headquarters of the
army of the Potomac, dated June 18, 8 p.
m.,says: the lighting yesterday was very
severe along the greater part or the line,
the mo. t determined efforts being made to
break the enemy's line at several points.
But little ground, however, was gained, ex

being about the center. At some points
of the line our gun.- are within a mile and a
halt of the city, which can be destroyed
at any time with ease. The havie.-t light
ing occurred on the right center, where each
division of the 2d corps at different hours
charged the rebel works in front, but with
out success. These works arecf the strong
est character, and the rebel troops were
massed behind them, and our men had to
cro open fields of from two to four hun
dred yards in extent to get at them, exposed
to a cross-fire from the batteries so as to
sweep the entire space. The last attack was
made at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, by the
3d division, under lien. Mott, and the loss
wa9 probably heavier than in any of the

General Sherman, in a dispatch dated
this evening (7.30 p. m. ) says : "I was pre
mature in announcing that the enemy had
abandon ?d his position. I based my report
upon those of the army commanders. The
enemy has thrown back his iiank and aban

apex of his position with his Hanks behind
Noonday and Moses Creeks. We have

Gen. Foster, commanding the department
of ihe South, at Hilton Head, forwards the
following dispatch, dated June 15, at Hil
ton Head, S. C : "I have the honor to re
port that I have to-day received from Maj.
Gen. Samuel Jones, commanding the rebel
forces in this department, a letter stating
that five General officers of the United
States, as prisoners of war, had been placed
in Charleston, to be retained there under
our fire. Against this weak and cruel act I
have protested. In the meantime the fire
on the city is continued. I respectfully ask
that an equal number of relei officers of e
qual rank may be sent to inc. in order that
I may place them under the rebel fre as long
a3 our officers are exposed in Charleston."
This department has issued a retaliatory
order, transferring to Gen. Foster an equal
number of rebel general oincers. to be treat
ed in the manner proposed as long as our
o fleers are exposed in Charleston.

The ISth army Corps. Gon. Smith, has
returned to Bermuda Hundred, having been
relieved from its position in front of Pc-teis-bui
ir. General Smith has issued the filiovv-
iiiir order: To the Eighteenth Arm it Corn:
The Genera! commanding desires to express
,to his command his appreciation of their
soldierly qualities, as have Wen displayed
during the campaign of the lat seventeen
days. Within that time they have been
call e 1 upon to undergo all the hardships of
a soldier's life and been exposed to ail r f its
dangers. Marches under a hot sun have
ended in severe battles ; after th battles,
watchful nights in the trenches taken fiom
the enemy. But the crowiiint.' point of the
honor they are entitled to has been won
Mnce the 15th instant, when a series of
earthworks, in most commanding positions
and of most formidable strength have been
carried with all the gun? and material of
war of the enemy, including prisoners and
colors. The works have ail U en held and
the trophies remai . in our hands. The vic
tory is all the more important to us. as the
troops have never li.n regularly organized
in camp, where time has been given them
to !-a. ;i th discipline nwe-sary to a well or
ganised coijjs (1 nrmee, but they Lave been
nastily concentrated and suddenly .summon

our country's being. Such honor as they
have won will remain imperishable.

Major (icneral Dix : Dispatches from City
Point, at 4 o'clock this evening, report no

Allien are not now proper lor publication.
The Richmond papers report an attack up
on Lynchburg by G en. Hunter on Saturday,
and that he was repulsed. It is believed,
however, that there was nothing more than
a reconnoissance, and that, having ascertain
ed the place to be strongly defended, Gen.
Hunter withdrew, and is operating upon
theenemy's communications at other points.
A dispatch from Gen. Sherman's head
quarters, dated yesterday at o clock,
states that ';it had rained almost incessant
ly, in spite of which our lines have been
pressed forward steadily, and an important
position has been gained by Gen Howard. "
The enemy made a desperate attempt to re
take this position last night, making seven
distinct assaults on Gen. hittakers bri
gade of Stanley's division, and losing not
less t han seven or eight hundred men. Two
hundred killed were left on Whittaker's
front. This assault was followed by a heavy
fire of artillery, under which the position
was fortified, and is now safe. Our cavalry
is across Noonday. Creek, on our left, and
one brigade of the 23d corps is across Moses
Creek on the right ; but the rebel left is be

bornly, and attempting the defensive when
ever he can.

No military intelligence from any other

the Weidon Railroad, did not result so disas
trously as was at firt supposed. The line
was formed by Barlows' division beiiiir on

on the centre, and Gibbon's on the right.
It was expected that the 0th corps would
have connected on the loft with Barlow, but
it sH-m quite a gap was left, into which A.
P. Hill's corns entered, and lie for our men
were aware of it thev received a vollov from
the rear which created a panic in the ranks
and caused a rapid retreat to the woods in
the rear of the 3d division. This left the
flank of the 3d Division unprotected and
the enemy, taking ndvanrage of if, charged
through and fairly into the pits, ordering
our men to surrender.
The troops, however, left the trenches
and fell back rapidly, but many of them
were captured and quite a number killed and
wounded. Our loss in prisoners is reported
at about 1.000, while some make the figure
higher. Our loss in killed and wounded is
probably 1,500. Four officers engaged in
this fight had just joined their command af
ter being exchanged, and when surrounded
and ordered to surrender, replied, ""never,
death rather than Libby." and fighting their
way as best they could, several of them got
back safe. At 8 P. M. a charge was made
by the 2d Corps, and the line of works from
which they had been forced in the afternoon
recovered. We lost scarcely a man in this
advance,as the enemy fired too high. and the
balls all passed ever the heads of our men.
A number of prisoners were taken.
