BOROUGH BOUNTY. —In the report in
regard to the local bounty subscription in
last weeks issue of the Citizen, the sur
plus was stated at 8174,43. Since then
'one of the $20,00 subscribers refuses to
pay his subscription. This will leave
8154,43 of a surplus, in the Treasury.
Committee.
fcy A Quarterly Meeting will be held
in the Butler M. E. Church, commencing
next Saturday at 1 o'clock, p. m. Rev.
T. N. Baird, D. D., will conduct the va
rious exercises of the meeting. Services
on Saturday evening at (i< o'clock, and
on Sabbath morning, at 10} o'clock.
BCRUI.ARIKS. —On Thursday night of
Jast week, the Restaurant of Samuel Sykes,
Jr., was broken open. The burglars gain
ed access by going in through the cellar
and prying open an inside back door.—
They were no doubt-fond of smoking as
they took about SC,OO worth of cigars.—
They also took a small amount of change
(hat happened to be left in the drawer.—
On last JlTinday night a pane was taken
out of the window of the Restaurant of!
(ieorge Hoeh, and from the opening thus I
made, three jars of candy were extracted, j
These acts of burglary and pilfering have I
their origin from the habit of street prowl
ing ; of boys being out at night. It is
but a short time since we spoke of the sad |
consequences that flow from the practice j
of boys "being out after night." The '
guilty in the above transactions, will, it is
feared, goon from bad to worse, until they i
find themselves arraigned before a court !
of justice, and find a safe lodging in the i
Penitentiary.
C»l>l. 11. I'illtMi.
U. S. Recruiting officer for this county, |
lias established an office in this place.— j
All wishing to enlist in any branch of the i
I 'nited States Service, can do so by call- i
ing on him on or before the Ist of March
next, at which time volunteering will cease 112
under (lit! present law allowing S4OO to ]
veterans and S3OO to others. Any town- J
ship not having furnished its quotij of the
f>00;000 men, at that time will have to j
experience the " oppression" of another
draft, and it should be remembered that
the next draft will be a " wholesale" one.
One half the men drafted will not be ex
empted for legal caime or physical ditabil
ity. 'I he draft will bo made under the
new or amended conscription act. which j
exempts but very few.
There is not a township in the county ,
but what can, with the proper action, clear j
itself of the coming draft. The only j
thing that is necessary, is for the citiiens |
to make the necessary effort to raise a rle- j
cent local bounty. Recruits are plenty.
We see men every day wanting to enlist,
and are willing togo for any township that
will pay a reasonable local bounty. Let
each and every township be up and doing ;
the time is short. The first of March is
drawing near.
If the quota of any of the districts in
our county is not filled by the first of
March, let there be no complaint or fault
finding against the Government. Now is
the time to work, and it should be done
without delay. Do "not suffer meu to leave '
our county and go lor some other because
:i local bounty is to be had therein. Act
now, and act energetically, and our quota
•will be filled without a draft.

THE CALL TOR LINCOLN.
The call for Lincoln, ooce again
To hold the govermental rein,
■frmmlh from the morelands of the north,
And from the lowlands of the sooth,
From fair Atlantic on the east,
T«» wild Pnciflcon our west,
j From Colafornla's mine# of gold
1 And hill* and plains of wealth untold
And from New England comet, the strain,
' Our suffrage give to Abe again.
The slave demands* it at our hands,
To break nway the galling bands,
That binds them soul and body down
Beneath a tyrant* vengeful frown;
i Humanity demands that we,
Upon thf candidate agree,
i Whom soldiers on the tinted field,
llave chosen and will never yield:
From each department comes the strain,
Let Liucoln be our guide again. •
The Democrat* are moulting fast,
> Before'the fierce and angry blast,
Of public sentiment and scorn ;
For they were wretched and forlorn
While in the rank Ophidian nest,
Obeying every vile behest,
Of sufh ns Sevmour. and of Wood,
W ho'd split the Union if they could:
They've moulted fhst, are moulting still.
And*call for Lincoln with a will.
The soldier stained with Southern sand,
Has often seized his honest hand.
And by some Innate feeling knew.
That Lincoln wa* his friend and true:
I've heard them proudly sav, I went
To see old Abe, the President,
And lie (though his cortege was grand)
Would deign to clasp u soldiers li'ind :
Now every soldier joins the strain.
Let Lincoln guide our cause again.
Aye, let the mnn of iron nerve,
Another term an guardian serve,
Our Nation, want' none other than,
The mightv Proclamation man:
Then let our banner be uufcrled,
For Abe the wonder of the world,
'Till contrite States go huud in hand.
To freedom's ehrine with Maryland :
From every point we hear the strain,
Place Lincoln in the chair again.

Army Correspondence.
For the Citizen.
BEAT/TON STATION, VA.,
Feb. 4th, 1864.
MESSRS. EDITORS. —We are encamped
j along the Orange and Alexandria R. 1!.. ,
j between Bealton Station and Warren ton
Junction, about midway between the twa I
places. AVe have a very fine camp, !
on high rolling ground. We have about
j 4t'o veterans in this regiment (62(1 Pa.), j
I as brave men as the Army of the Poto
! mac can produce. They h»vc acquitted
themselves nobly in all the engagements
I in which they have participated, which
the history of this regiment lias fully |
j shown. The old soldiers are not so rash j
| in their ways towards the new recr > and '■
I drafted men as some men tliou t they j
would be.
I had been in the army bef' and I
never saw a better dieiplined regiment |
than the G2d Pa. in the service The 91.-t j
! Pa. and the 82d Mass. have r enlisted and J
arc home on furlough, which has caused
us to perform almost doubl duty,but this
j will soon end. Every duty is performed
1 with cheerfulness. W< have good and '
j tried officers. Col. Switicr is acting as
j Brigadier General ««f 01 Brigade. The
j Regiment is commanded by Lieut.-Col.
J. C. Hull. A.M.
The l!ral'l as i< is lo be.
The enrollment ell, as it passed the
House retains th< IWOO commutation
clause, but limits "lie term of exemption
only until the names theu in the wheel are
exhausted.
I Enrolled men. wlim scape the draft, and
go in as si^istitutes,only free their princi
| pals until the next draft, that is, they and |
their principals merely change place*.— \
Aliens, who are not subject to the draft, if
they go as substitutes, free their principals
for the full term of service.
Only sons of widows or of aged and in- i
firm parents, only brothers of children un- I
der twelve years of age, fathers of moth
erless children, sons elected by aged anil
infirm parents, nnd indeed all who, on ac
count of peculiar family relations and con
ditions. were entitled to exemption under
the former draft, are now just as liable to
draft and to service as others. Enrolled
whether their names have been stricken
from the rolls, or their papers endorsed by
the board of enrollment, will be restored
to the rolls as before.
We give this distinct notice of these
facts, that parties interested may be induc
ed to unite with those who hare never had
any plea to offer, in efforts to free their
sub-districts from the operat'on of the
draft. To give an opportunity to do this,
the draft was postponed for about forty
days, from the sth of January to the 10th
of March, and most nobly havemanysub
distriets come up to the work. Indeed,
we think, judging from the way things are
moving, that there will be but few that
will suffer the draft to fall upon them ;but
the ppople of such as do suffer it to take
place, may be assured that it will be rigid
ly enforced, and the full quotas exacted
either in men or money.— Pittsburgh Ga
zette..
Jiiylu Idaho uothing goes as a circu
lating medium but gold dust. Every man
carries his little buckskin pouch, and, no
matter what his purchase is, he pays for
it in the precious legal tender of the
realm, which is weighed out on scales kept
for the purpose, whether the article bought
be a cigar, a horn of whisky or something
of more utility and value. The minimum
of value is a quarter of a dollar, and the
weights arc graduated from that sum up.
aft?" A new gunboat, the Ouachita, has j
just been completed at Cairo. She is an
iron-clad, but differs from the other craft
of that description in retaining her cabin
and upper works entire Iler batteries
consist of howitsers and rifled Parrotts,
and are in such a position as to command
the banks of the river, and enable her
crew to engage rebel batteries at almost
any point upon equal terms.
THE KANSAS U. S. SKNATOUSIIIP.—
At a meeting of the Union League the
night of the oth instat Leavenworth, res
olutions were adopted denouncing an elec
tion of United States Senator by the pres
ent Legislature as an infamous fraud up
on the people, and a disgrace to the State
of Kansas, and expelling all members of
the Legislature belonging to the League,
who voted for the joiut- resolution togo
into an election. A meeting of the citi
zens is called for to-night to take action
on this matter, and similar meetings are
to be held throughout tho State. There
was no candidate voted for against Carney.
Thirty-one votes were cast, but all were
blank or against the fraud.
The minority and a portion of the State
officers issued a protest against the elec
tion.
VOLUNTEERING IN FRANKLIN COUN
TY. —The Cbambersburg Repository says:
The volunteering in this oonuty during
the last week was unexampled since the
first call for troops. Col. Boyd's cavalry
regiment is now about full—certainly not
less than one thousand strong, and every
branch of the service has been liberally
strengthened by our county A majority
of the districts have already filled their
quotas, and-we doubt not that before the
Ist day of March every man called from
the Old Green Spot will be in the serv
ice ; and besides we have scores of men
to other localities. The districts
of this county all paid liberal bounties—
ranging from SIOO 1 - loOperman. Not
less than 850,000 has already been raised
by subscriptions to pay bounties, and all
that may be needed can be readily raised
in addition. We iloubt not that such leg
islation will be had as will reimburse the
subscribers by tax 1 tion—th us imposing the
burdens equally lpon all. If all the coun
ties of the Stat, are as prompt as Frank
-1 lin. Pennsylvania willbeagain, as ever be
fore. among the first to discharge her
whole duty to preserve the life of the lic
public.
CRKI.IT "K THE DRAFT. —A great mis
take is boii - made with reference to cred
it on the 'aft, and many districts after
1 having . ponded large sums of money to
fill up their quotas, will find that they
I have 11 : in reality furnished a soldier to
secure exemption on the present call.—
The < ris committed in this manner :
Agci - are now in Ilarrisburg from all
part- 112 the State, looking after the vet
er;i who have just returned on furlough.
These agents make it a business to bargain
with the veterans, paying each soldier a
j certain sum of money to allow to
i be credited to a certain district, when that
j veteran has already been creited and rc
! ecived a bonnty. The locality of the en
! listment of tho veteran —where he was
first credited, cannot be and was notohang
!ed when he reenlisted. Hence the wrong
of tempting these men into allowing their
names to be credited to localities only now
offering bounties. In all cases, such cred
its will be disallowed by the Provost Mar
shals in tho several districts. The people
J will at once see that if the double credit
j were allowed, the Government would get
no soldiers while the people would be
enormously taxed.— Pittsburgh Gazette.
A requisition was made a few days
ince on the government for boots for the
j colored regiment in camp at Quiney, Illi
nois. The sizes were so enormous that
! they could not bo procured at Chicago,
[ and the agent had to telegraph to Wash
ington to know what was to be done. lie
was ordered to have the regimental feet
( measured and send the result to Washing
ton, so that the boots could be const rue
ted there. The sizes range from 10's to
20's. This regiment will be apt to ''tram
ple on the rights of the South."
A young Englishman was sworn in
at New Haven, last week, who was
one of tlio famous "six hundred" im
mortalized by Tennyson.
