The news is of the most important
character. Sherman is reported to have
marched Into North Carolina, and is
steadily moving northward. An effort is
making to unite his and Sobofield's ar
mies, which will give Sherman an effec
tive force of from seventy to eighty thou
sand men. The Confederates are coir.iggi
trating their forces under (len. Joe John
son, to oppose the further progress of
Sherman's forces, and are said to have
gathered a large army. A Southern paper
reports a disaster to Sherman's army, re
sulting in the capture of eight thousand
of his men and many wagons, but the
story does not appear to be confirtned.
Active operations are in_ progress in
Grant's army, and a desperate battle is
daily expected. Thrilling news may be
impacted at any moment.

The present term of Republican rule,
says the New York World; is destined to
live. in history as the Most corrupt which
ewer cursed a free people. The corrup
tens- at Washington in the profligate ex
penditures of the War Department, the
mitten :expenditures of the Navy De
partment, the corruption-engendering
permit 'yawn" of the Treasvy Depart
ment, are dping their dreactitil work at
the centre lef government, but in the
States under Republican control the Wm
causes product like results. The Tribune
charges the New York Legislature, in
which Republicans are largely in the ma
jority, as susceptible of bribes and (mink
tion, and the Pose reiterates the assertion.
,The testimony of these journals on the
character of the men they helped to elect
not to be disputed.
In the Chicago correspondence of the
'ew York Amu, the Illinois Legislature,
majority Republican, is accused of similar,
oorruption,and the charge is openly made
that the passage of a horse.railway bill,
giving to existing companies -franchises
for which a million of dollars were offered
on the part of the city of Chicago, was
secured by the direct, and corrupt, use of
money and - stock.
The Albany Evening Journal charges the
Pennsylvania Legislature with the pas
sage of a bill giving up the bed of the
Allegheny river, in the oit, region, to '
speculators,:who expect t. bore its bed for
oil. The grant, it says, is estimated to be
worth millions, and it is charged "that
" the members who voted for the bill are
"to share in the plunder, of course."
t Suoh is the virtue of the party "foun
ded on great moral ideas." It stinks in
the nostrils of a suffering people.
The approaching city election is begin
ning to be oonsiderably talked about, and
• number of names are mentioned in con
nection with the various °Meer. For
Mayor we have . heard the following gen.
tlemen spoken of:,. Col. John H. Bliss,
Major Andrew Scott, David Shirk, John
Burgess, Matthew R. Barr, and F. A.
Becker. Out of this list it should not be
hard to select a man whose election would
promote the city's interest. Mayor Met
calf, it is generally understood, will de
cline to be a candidate again. We pre.
sums that no political issues; will be al
lowed to influence the canvass, and that
all will unite in supporting the best men
without regard to party.
_ Tss Richmond Enquirer frankly admits
that ehese is, or has been, a large party at
the South willing to return to the Union,
and that it would probably become the
dominant party if the peace commission
ewe had been proposed gent:one terms by
Lincoln and Seward. This is the first time
that any Richmond journal has admitted
• that reconstruction was possible. The
Xobile .Resider and Advertiser says that the
:•• people at that end of the Confederacy are
willing not only to come back, but to con,
sent•tb the gradual abolition of slavery,
provided in other respects they could
have the same "rights" they possessed in
the old Union.

We found the employees of the aloe;
about a dozen in number,bwiily employed
in preparations for the unpleasant work of
the draft. Some were writing names upon
the cards which are to be drawn from the
wheel ; and others making out: blank no•
tices for the conscripts . The cards are
about an inch in width,and two in length,
each one containing the name of an en.
rolled person. These will bó put into the
wheel in a jumble, and after being turned
about several times, a blind man or one
blindfolded will draw one out through a
'Mall door at the side of the instrument.
Every time a card is drawn, the wheel
will be given another turn. The card
wilt be handed by the blind man to the
Provost Marshal, who will call out the
name written upon it, and it will then be
given to the clerk whose diity it is to

The drat/ will patively occur on Monday
next, if the neceseary preparetions can be
got through with, and'eo order to post
pone it is received from Washington. The
labor required in order to get everything
in readiness is very great, and may delay
action far a few days, but it will not be
longer than a week at farthest: The
first names drawn will be those for the East
Ward of Erie city, and when these are
completed the balance of the wards, bor
oughs, townships aid counties will be
continued, in the order in which they ap
pear in the table below. It is expected
that the names- from Erie and Warren
counties will be .completed on the first
day, and those from the other parts of
the district on the succeeding one. The
men from this city will be ordered to re
port on the 23d of Manhood those of the
other Fella of the county on vargaui days,
extending from the 24th of March in the
first given plum, to the sth of April in
the townships Lest named in the table.
When the drafted men arrive at Ridgway
they will be examined as to fitness for
military duty ; if pronounced not liable,
they will receive exemption PaP•ra if

who do not procure substitutes s m do not

with temporary quarters at Eidgway,

this subject we speak from official author
ity., Any enrolled man may go as a sub

number drawn in this draff; and the prin
cipal is in no way held liable for him.
Neither subititutes nor conscripts have a
choice of service or regiments, but they
mast go wherever they are assigned by
the officers at Carlisle. A substitute must
be taken to Ridgway and pass thp exami
nation of Dr. Matson. If he is held, his
money and clothing will be taken into
the provost marshal's hands; the former
to be sent to his friends ; the latter to be
delivered to him - when he enters the
ranks of the army,pr be sent to the charge
of such persons as he may direct. Drafted
men and substitutes will receive sixteen
dollars a month from the government,
but no bounty.
Drafted men, may report at kidgway for
exiuninatio' n before the day fixed in their
notices ; but there will be no certainty of

inquire into the system upon Which it was
conducted. In This delicate matter the
_Provost lltiishal bad no option whatever,
being direetil to follow a rale laid dews
at Washington for its settlement is every
part of the country. The War Department
goes upon the principle of crediting each
district. not for the number of wen, but
for the number alms furaiiked. Thus,
if a township has sent to the war twenty
five three years ai r , it is entitled town,
credit' than the toenthip which has sent
sixty one year men In each instance the
excess of years furnished over those re:
.by the President's calls is credited
to the district, and taken into considers
tioir in arranging the , present quotas. A
knowledge of this rule will amount for
meaty of the seeming disproportions in the
quotas, and perhaps allay some of the
double and bad feeling engendered its the
mind of the public. To explain the sys
tem in full would require more space than
'we are able to yield at present, but the
above will give our readers sometking like
an accurate impression on this much de

The following table shows the number
of iiiirolled men in each district of Erie

number that will be drawn. It must be
remembered that one hundred per cent.
will be added to each quota in case of a
draft, although the original 'somber only

We must take this occasion to correct
an erroneous' impression that has been
widely circulated, vis : that the draft is to
be made in secret. We are assured that
it will be as public as any that have pre
ceded it, and that, to the extent of the
facilities of the office, an opportunity will
be granted to see the method in which
it is conducted to any who desire to do 40.
An invitation to be present will probably

Team ABSOLITTS Sacrieur.—Nearly all
active credits are now based on Govern
ment securities, and banks bold them as
the very strongest and best investment
they can make. If it were possible to con
template the financial failure of the Gov
ernment, no bank would be any safer. If
money is loaned on indiVidual notes or
bond and wilt be payable in
the saute currency as the Government
pays with, and no better. The Govern
ment never be. failed -to meet its' en
gagements, end the national debt 'is a
Irtgage upon the whole property
of the country. While other •stocks fluc
tuate from ten to fifty, or even a greater
per cent., Government stocks are always
comparatively firm. Their value is fixed
and;reheble, beyond all -other securities ;
for while a thousand speculative bubbles
rise and burst, as a rule they AT never
below par, and are often above.
ITN UMW. Inrausr.—The general rate
of interest is six per cent. payable annu
ally. TAis it seven and three tenths,pay
able son.onstually. If you lend on mort
gage, there must be a searching of titles,
imiyers' fee, stamp duties and delay ',and
you will finally have returned to you only
the same kind of money you would re
ceive from the Governmeat,and less of it.
If you invest in this lows you have no
trouble. Any bank or banker will obtain
it for you without charge. To each note
or bond are affixed five "coupons" or in
terest tkfrdi, due at the expiration of each
successive half year. The holder of a
note has simply to cut off one of these
coupons, present it to the nearest bank
er Government Agency, and receive his
interest ; the note itsell need not be pre- '
rented at all. Or a eoupon,thns payable.
will be everywhere equivalent, when due,
to money. If you wish to borrow ninety
cents on the dollar upon the notes, you
have the highest security in the merket
to do it with. If you wish to sell, it will
bring within a fraction of cost and inter
est at any moment. It will be very ban
dy to have in the house.
IT IS CONTINTLILZ into a six per cent.
gold-bearing bond. At the expiration of
three years a holder of the notes of the
7.30 Loan has the option of accepting
payment in full or of funding his notes
in a six per cent. gold-interest bond; the
principal payable in not less than five, or
more than twenty years from its date, as
the Government may elect. These bonds
are held at such a premium as to make
this privilege now worth two or three
per, cent. per annum, and adds much to
the, interest. Notes of the same
lulled three years ago, are now selling
at a rate that fully proves the correct
ness of this statement.

Harry, and I.
We wood where the snake-like ivy
Climbed over the tneadovr bars,
Ault watched as the young night sprinkled
The sky with her eream•white stars
The clover was red beneath us—
The air bad a smell of June—
The cricket chiiped in tbo grasses,
, And the soft rays of the moon, -
Drew nut shadows on the meadow.
Distoried and lank and tall ;
Ws shadow was kissing my shadow—
, That was the best of all.
My heart leaped up es he whiepered,
you, Margaret Lee."
For thew one arm of his shadow
• Went *round the shadow of me.
.•I lore you, Margery, darling, "
Because you are young and fair •
For your eyes' bewildering Maness,
And the gold of your curly hair.
No gum has hands that ars whiter,
No lark has s voice so sweet,
And your ripe 'dung lips are redder
" than the Glover at your feet
"My heart will break with its Minus :
Like a cloud o'erelisrged with !sin :
0 tell me Margery, darling,
How long mast I lore in THID ?"
With blushes and smiles, I answered—
(l will not tell what)—jnst then
I UMW that his Buoy shadow
Wu kissing my own again
He promised to love mo only—
I premised to love but him—
Till the moon fell out of the heavens
And the stare with age grew dim
0 the strength of man's devotion':
0 the vows a woman speaks
4Tis yens* since that blush of rapture
Broke redly over my cheeks.
He found a gold that welo brighter
Than that of my ficlog curls,
And married a cress-04d widow,
Kith a dozen grown up girls.
And I—did I pine and languish ?
Did I weep my blue eyes sore?
Or break my heart do you fancy ,
For love that was mine no more
I stand to-night is the meadow
Where Harry sad I stood then,
And the moon has drawn two shadows
Oat over the grass again.
And a low ♦oiee keeps repeating—
So, close to my startled ear
That the shadows met together—
"l love you. Margery, dear."
,"'Tie not - for your cheeks' rich crimson,
And not for your eyes' soft blue,
But ,beeauss your heart is tender,
And noble and pure ant true."
The voice is dearer than 114 rry's
And so I. am glad, you see,
He married the cross•eyed widow—
Instead of Margery Lee !
