IsBth reghnent - of Pennsylvania drafted nien
returned here to be mustered out of service
on ••Thtirsday evening last, when the men
-were furloughed to go home until Monday.
On that day they returned and were mustered
Anit by, Lieut. C. M'Kibben, U. S. army, and
'vas eirietd they would be paid to-day:
As'soon as paid they will be discharged.
iThis , reginicnt is composed of most of
drafted men of this county=all but one corn-.
pant',, we, believe, which joined the 165th
regiment,-rand all the dtafted men -from
Cumberland and Fulton. It is conceded on
all hands that in ptiint of discipline, efficient
"ay and' behavior generally, it was unsurpas
' sad by any regiment in the. service. The
men, as a elai,s, were of our own best citizens,
and they were most fortunate in their - cd' :
oars. r Clol. - David B. 3Tliibbin, of the reg
. ular army, was entrusted with the command,
'and while he 'enforced the most thorough
discipline, .he -commanded the respect - and
of of his men. Indeed it has rarely
been the fortune of an Officer to bring to such
a high degree of drill and, order generally,
raw troops, and at the same time preserve
•the ardent attachment of his command. We
would indeed that no worse officers than
3l'Bibbin wore the stars of Brigadiers.
Ile was ably seconded in all his efforts by
Lieut. Col. Troxel, of this county;.and Maj.
Hale, of Cumberland,—both efficient, un
tiring and brave officers.

monstrous difference—there , is between the

worded note to supply our feet with "crocodile

'always rendered the bill "To one pair croco

for the :sturdy old poplars "whose slender

"boiled and hot troasting ears.". Ears ! that
reminds us of the. great
,number of mules
thronging our streets. Our streets are very
dirty, and no wonder, when our streets are
stables, and the pavements stalls. We are
under martial law; that is, a citizen has to
mind his-Ps and Qs or he'll get his Is into
trouble. It's a frightful thing to have so
many men on horseback/or the first time in
their lives ; and then if the horses happen to,
run off, some may "ride to the devil," and
that would be a.pity-,-for the devil. There

Maps MEETING.- I .A. very large and en
thusiastic Meeting of the Union men was
held in the diamond on Monday evening last,
under the direction of the :Union League o
this place. Hon. Win. D. Kelly, of Phila
delphia, was the speaker of the occasion, and
he Nindicated the cause of the government in
a truly masterly and eloquent manner. He
is a bold, fluent and most impressive speaker,
and is second to none in his ability to grap
ple great questions and elueidate them tri
umphantly. He showed clearly to whom
must be charged the responsibility of this
bloody fraternal war, and also demonstrated
that the last lingering hOpe cif the now 'des
'ponding traitors Is in rebel sympathisers in
the North who decry negro enlistments, con
demn drafts and defy the laws •as far as their
cowardly instincts permit them. His able
speech was a most conclusive. vindication a
the war policy of the administration, and his
appeal to Pennsylvania to- maintain , her fi
delity to the cause of the Republic by the
re-:electron / of Gov: Curtin, was most earnest
and convincing. The Union men of the
“Green Spot" are grateful to Judge Kelly
for his address, and biChim God speed in
the good work. Resolutions were read by
Isaac H. McCauley Esq., endorsing the ad
ministration of, President Lincoln and the
re-nomination of Governor Curtin.

Two decisions' have been made: by the
Provost Marshal 'General relating to the
draft since we published a summary of the
law and'various orders. Substitutes between
18 and 20 may be furnished, if physically
qualified for the service, and where a man
pays $3OO to exempt him from service, the
Provost MarShal does: not draw another to
fill the place. Some doubt has been express
ed abOut drafted 'men getting bounty, ad
vance pay, &c., as do volunteers. , In order
to set the question at rest we copy the section
of the act of congress. It is as follows:
SEC. 2. And be it further enacted, That all
persons thus enrolled shall be subject for two,
years after the first day Of July succeeding
the enrollment, to be called into themilitary
service of the United States, and to continue
in service during the:present rebellion, not,
however, exceeding the term of three years,
and when called into servicesh.a// be placed
on the same footing; in all respects, as volun
teers for three years or during the war, in
cluding, advance pay and bounty as now pro
vided by law.
AN order has been issued forbidding the
remoi;nl of bodies from - the battle-ground of
Gettysburg, during the months of August
and &interfiber, "Ilt is as follows . -
