in examination ot substitutes and vol-
unteers, we had more trouble with boys,
not more than 14 or lo jearsof age, than
any class ot men
They were frequently brought from a
distance always claiming to be 18 years
of age. They were eo well drilled by the
brokers having them in charge, that they
would torce a very full inspiration, strut
about erect as old eoldiers, and go through
every process of examination with as
much activity as a set of lofty tumblers.
They were taught before coming here that
in mis case mere was do wrong: in pre
tending to be several years older than they
really were. We rejected many boys who
were over the minimum standard, because
they were undeveloped in bono and mus
cle, and evidently not over 15 year old
No reliance could be placed on the word
of themselves or those in charge of them
.as to their age. lhey presented every
variety, from tho stripling boy of" 14, to
that oi lull developed puberty.
Again, old men over 50 years of ago,
came with hair dyed, and in some oases
artificial teeth inserted, claiming to be
aliens and under 4a years ot age. These
frauds were so easily detected, that I be
lieve we were not in any instance imposed
on by this class.
I have no suggestions to offer in addi
tion to what have already been hiated at,
to avoid or overcome these difficulties in
future, except such resources a3 the skiti-
ful and vigilaat surgeoft will readily call
to his aid as the exigency may occur.
Of the men examined, the number of
Pennsylvanians largely preponderated
over all others combmed, and in my
opinion, they presented the greatest phv9i-J
cal aptitude tor military service. A very
large proportion of Pennsylvanians fur
nished by this district certainly cannot
be excelled in symmetry of form, rhv&ica)
endurance and intellectual development
by any equal number selected from any
nationality. This i3 accounted for by the
habit" of industry, sobriety and frugality.

With ono or two exceptions, I cannot
imagine that the present enrollment law
requires any amendment.
I would, however, suggest that the en
rollment law be eo amended, that all or
dained ministers of the gospel, who have
a charge, be exempt. The present law,
requiring ministers of the gospel to boar
nrms, is certaiuly a retrograde step in any
government founded on the principles of
civilization, as a class, we fand preachers
physically unfit for military duty to greater
extent than an equal number of men in
any other calling.
With much deference, I would respect-
fully suggest the importance of obtaining
the first class of medical talent in the
country as surgeon of the Poard of En-
rollment is SO obviors, that no argument
equally clear, that the salary of burgeons
in this capacity was, during the war, by
no means an equivalent for the responsi-
bility, labor, and in some respects, disa-
greeable duties connected with the office,
A respectabb physician in full practice
can under ordinary circumstances, collect
ns the proceeds of hU practice double and
often treble the amount prescribed by laws
os compensations of surgeons of Hoards,
and then have the advatitage of enjoying
the comforts of home. The inference i.s
therefore clear that a physician who from
necessity or choice is anxious to secure a
competency for himself and family in de
clining years by his professional labor,
would not accept this position at the pre
sent rank ot the surgeon:
The question may be fairly asked of
your humble servant, " Do you not claim
professional respectability with a profitable
practice at home ?" I answer yes. ' It is
now full tliirj-fivo years since I encaged
actively in the practice of medicine in my
present locality, and at the time my ap
pointment as surgeon came, which was
unsolicited by, and even unknown to me,
I was mediating retirement from the
laborious part of professional life. I de
cided to accept it as a change, aud once
initiated, I became interested in the cause,
and felt that as we must all make sacrifices
in putting down this terrible rebellion, 1
would do what I could in tho consumma
tion of thi great work.
An amendment to theJflw ranking sur
reon of tle"J3oard as Major, would in
my humbla opinion, hereafter secure the
services of est medical men, the ad
ditional expense of which would be more
than compensated for by the assurance

TIIURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1866..
Editorial Correspondence. A
Washington, D. C, Dec. 12. 1865.
After President Lincoln's death, great
solicitude was naturally manifested as to
the policy to be pursued by his constitu-
tional successor, Andrew Johnson. About
that time the Vice President, in occa
sional speeches, used language not a lit- Slavery has ceased to exist. in the Uni

reconstruction of the rebel States very of the States, and the Secretary of State
different . from that of the lamented Lin-
coin. Suddenlv called to the Presidential
l . .
chair, President Johnson found himself in
a position where he was not only obliged to
r . . . 4 .
euunciate theories, but put them in actual
operation. All eyes were turned to the
" V hite Ilouse,' watching with intense
anxiety the terms and conditions of recon-
struction a3 th ,hould be develo d in
, . . . ,
,Q adminstration of the new chief ma-
gisfcrate. The general expectation seemed
to be that ("to use the language of the
President as he then expressed it in his
speeches,) " treason would be treated as
as a crime and traitors punished " in
other words, that the leading rebels would
bo compelled to answer to the government
for the heinous crimes they had committed
against it. - '
Subsequent events, however, have de-
monstrated, that Ptesident Johnson did
not carry his implied threats towards the
reb?Is into execution. Patriotic conside
rations, and a desire to win back the re
bellious South, caused the President to
adopt a different policy, one of great leni-
ency and mercy. Any policy involving
reconstruction at that time was an ex-
penmcnt, something to be tried and
tested; and with this view of the case,
the President appointed Provisional Go-
necessary machinery in motion to bring
,. , , ... .
:ne reDel 6tate governments back into the
Union. Instead of trying and hanging a
Datch or two ot the principal traitors, the
President took the other evtr
unconditional rardons to a larrrfi nnmlipr.

In one view of the case President John-
son's policy has been a failure in another
it has not. It has failed to change the
hearts of - the rebel leaders to loyalty, and
still further to bring back the masses in
many of the .rebel States to accept the
logical results of the war. A majority of
these leaders still secretly hate the. govern
ment and cling to the political heresies
which impelled them on to secession and
rebellion. They sport the same haughty
airs, put on the same 'imrjerious manner.

BOWDYISM EAMPAXT A BARBER-SHOP O CITED
A MAS 8HOT BY. A WOMAN FESTIVAL AT
TUE i PRESBYTERIAH CHURCH THE HCTCHIN
80X FAM1XY, AC, AC.
r JonNSTOWN, Dec. 31, 1865. .
Dear AUeghanian: Never in the histo
ry of this city has there been, we think,
so much lawlessness and rowdyism, with
so. little effort on the part of our munici
pal authorities to preservo the pub
lic peace, as at the present time. On
ounaay preceaing nnstmas, tnis was
shown by the appearance on our streets
oi perhaps a hundred drunken, brawling,
insulting young men and boys, and proven,
too, by their guttiog a barber-shop kept
by a colored man named Chambers, on
Clinton street, and by. rows and street
fights on Main and Railroad streets, both
on Sunday and Christmas following. ,
With regard to the barber-shop affair,
oon on Sunday,
we observed a constable or two in the
vicinity some four or five hours afterwards,
calmly surveying the damage sustained by
the barber. If we had any apprehensions
of further difficulties, we were then en
tirely satisfied that no danger or trouble
impended, or the custodians of the Bor
ough peace would not have been about.
xrui 11 10 aua' noer; lDt "tey
took the law in his own hands and struck
one of the rowdies on the head with an
iron poker, making a severe if not a dan
gerous Wound. Some arrests have since
been made in the cases of street fights,
and tlie parties bound over for their ap
pearance at the next Quarter Sessions.
We learn, also, that on Tuesday night,
last, a man named Hinton was shot by a
woman , or boy, living on the Island, while
attempting to burglariously enter their
dwelling. Since the occurrence we are
told he is lying in a dangerous condition,
having some fifty buckshot in the region
of hi9 stomach. Hi? recovery under the
circumstances is certainly doubtful. To
our knowledge no blame attaches to the
woman who is supposed to have shot him,
and if the fact is. as stated, she certainly
deserves credit rather than censure.
The only entertainment or amusement
afforded our community during the holi
day season consisted of the festival aud
tableaux at the Presbyterian church, and
the concert by the Hutchinson family, on
Tuesday evening, at the same place. The
former were, gotten up to assist in dis
charging the debt incurred by the congre
gation- in the erection of their nejv and
handsome church, and we- are glad to
learn proved very successful. Wb had
the pleasure of listening to the Hutchin
son family, and must pay the willing tri
bute of our admiration and appreciation
of the entertainment they afforded to a
large and appreciative audience. .
Yours, Don Diego.
