rar We notice that a resolution has been
introduced in Congress to confiscate the
property of all persons who evade the draft,
by running away, to an amount sufficient to
procuro for them a suitable substitue.—
"What next ?" as the toad said, when his
tail dropped olf.
Another attack, it is said will be made upon
Fort Fisher by the navy, It L rumored that
Gen. Grant with a large land force will co
operate. Gen. Thomas is still crossing the
Tennessee River. It is hoped that he will
reach the south bank in safety. Judging
from the length of time he has been doiiig so.
it must be one of the widest bodies,of water
in the world, The news from other quarters
is comparatively unimportant.
car The Court adjourned on Tuesday.
Owing to the absence of P. M. Osterhout E<q
and the illness of Judge Peckham, no civil
causes were tried. Most of the time was oc
cupied in the disposition of cases on the ar
gument 1 st, granting rules, motions,&c.
The Grand Jury found true bills in the
following cases,—Commonwealth vs James
Mullison, charge embezzlement of Public
Comwth vs Helen Williams, charge assault
and battery.
Comwth vs Rebecca Wilson, charge assault,
and battery. This case was tried, and Del't
acquitted on the ground of insantity. An
order was ruade fur hor removal to the State
Lunatic Hospital.
An indictment was preferred against Simeon
Gay and J. P. Dyuiond, supervisors of Exe

The Grand Jury reported against the
building of a new Jail, "in consequence," as
they said, "of the exhorbitant prices of la
bor and material."
Correct the Enrollment,
The enrollment, we understand, is to be
r eviscd and corrected, previous to the draft
to be made in February next. The Board of
enrollment are to visit each county for that
purpose. Notice of the time of their coming
will of course be given. The of each
Township in the couuty should at once meet
and appoint a committee to make a thorough
canvass of their-respective towns, for the
purpose of fixing their true quotas. Through
the extreme "Loyalty," if not culpable igno
rance, negligence and fraud,of deputy provost
marshals, scores of names,are wrongfully add
ed to the rolls ; thus increasing the quotas by
a false exhibit of names of men who do not
exist, or who are not liable to the draft. AH
persons of the following classes,should be no
ted, that their names may be struck from the
rolls :
All persons who are deceased..
All who have served two years.
All who are in the service.
All non residents.
All under age.
All over age.
All aliens.
The R"ard wish to add to the rolls all who
have arrived at the age of 20, all who were
omitted from last enrollment, and all who
have gained a residence since last enrollment
We presume, too that the names of all per
sons, manifestly, pennanontly disqualified by
reason of physical disability, would upon ap
plication aud proof be stricken from the rolls.
All such may save themselves a trip to Troy,
and considerable expense, by giving attention
to this matter; and at the same time reduce
the quota of their townships. Now that an
opportunity is afforded, to remedy one of the
greatest evils connected with this "infamous"
conscription act, let the committees and all
others interested meet the board with their
proofs end insist that a correct enrollment be
The matter should be attended to at once.
Among other incidents of the Sher
man campaign through Georgia, the following
discreditable story is told of some of the
western soldiers. A foraging party visited a
plantation and entered upon the pleasant
passtimc of strangling chickens and bayonet
ing hogs. Finding a fine flock of sheep tluy
"went for them/' as the boys say, when the
rebvl owner came out and told them to take
alt but two imported merino sheep, which
•ho highly prized. Having pointed the pets
out to the men, she returned to the house
A few minutes after she says, they rctucned
informedJher that t hey had killed the petted
sheep, and proposed to dine upon it. Said
they. "Madam®, give us the piano; it is a
sacrilege to cook so choice a mutton with
common fuel." The piano, she av C rs, was
carried out, broken up. the fire kindled in
the yard, and dinner highly relished by the
clly foragers.

'fcie Coming Dralt,
General Grant's "glorious" campaign re- j
! suited in a conscription f;r 300,000 men;
and the announcement of Gen. Sherman's
! splendid achievement is accompanied by a
j call for 300,000 more.
i The If'orhl and other Dem oralic journal
were temporarily suppressed ! >r anticipating
I the President's former proclamation, ai d
; previous to the lite election every McCTellsn
man was denounced as a rebel sympathizer,
and a traitor, who dared to give utterance to
! his convictions that in the event of Mr. Lui
j coin's ro-elect.i in another draft w< ul i be ic
| evitable. Nut only did the lesser iuhts of j
| Abolitionism howl themselves -hemselvt- j
! hoarse with the old Cnrtin shibboleth, '"\ oe j
| the Republican ticket, and avoid the draft,"
, but those high iir power, and who ought to
! have been good authority upon such subjects
i reiterated again and again the pledge-that no
more Conscriptions would be necessary, and
: none would be enforced. Secretary Seward
i made a point of this promise in his Auburn
| speech, and Solicitor Y> biting assured th®
! country that the last draft hal been success
ful aud that the government had obtained all
the men, and even more than was needed to
capture Richmond and finish up the Rebel!
ion. The people took these gentlemen at
their word, and have re-elected Mr. Lincoln,
j The reward follows even more promptly than
was anticiprted by the most ultra Copper
j head; but it has come, and, though we may
| not expess a disappointment we do not fee!,
! we may at lca-t be permitted to give utter
ance to a genuine condemnation of the miser- j
able falsehoods resorted to by the imbeciles
in power to insure a retention of their hold
upon the public purse and the public throat.
Since February last—considerably loss
than one year—the Administration has is
sued calls, and ordered draft, f>r a million i
and a half of men. In February the Presi- j
dent "called" for five hundred thousand vol - !
unteers, all deficiencies to be supplied by a I
| draft. On the 13th of March he ordered a
draft for two hundred thousand men, to
meet the immediate necessities of the army
and navy." On the 10.h of July another
draft was ordered f r a half million of men :
1 and now wu h&vo another call for three bun- •
• 1 i
l ! dred thousand mote.
, ! Mi. Lincoln is yet filling his unexpired'
. first term, and has been designated by tin
j chosen electors of the Union as the iucum
, j bent of the presidential chair fur four year.-
longer. Hi s soldiery are air-ady stat tn i
in every county, and are engaged in hunting
down the desperate victims of firmer con-'
. scripticns. The families of those who have
. already been enticed or f >rced into the wa r
are begging f r an increase of the scanty j it
, tance allowed them by B ards of Relief.—
j Those able-bodied men who can are flying
. from their h uncs and seeking freedom in a
monarchy. Conscription, tsxer, desolation
and want keep pace with each other, and the
time is not far distant when the almost uni
uersal sentiment will be, "Give us any kind
t of peace rather than thi- 'aim! d v.i-u'iug
, war." Ia that day "they who have .- >w
the wind shall reap thewhuln : I,"
Of one thing the, pnwt-rs thai b - m.i
assured: the people wdl not eubmit </:'• :ty
to another draft bofi re tl. y I ,ve ruived
some satisfactory response to ihe foil wine;
inquiries, which cannot fad to sn/gc-! them
i selves to every ret! voting mis 1.
J First : If the draft under the I-.t call f r
i 500.000 men was enforced to the letter, the
| government assured the people it would b .
and as the country suppose 1 it bad been—
what has become of the men, and whence tin
need of another draft ! According to It
lowest estimate of Secretary .Stanton, and aft
' er deducting ail claims S.B<! drawbacks from
every quarter, the dralt was to produce not
less than 300,0o0men; and as "all that Gen
Grant asks for the capture of Richmond, and
♦o give the finishing blow to the rebel armie
yet in the field, is 100.0;; I men." the remain
ing 200,000 would "be adequate for garrison
tn forts, and to guard all the lines ofcoinmu
nicalion and supply, free the coun'ry from
guerrillas, give security to trade, piotect c nu
0 niercc and travel, and establish peace, order
u and tranquility in every State."
n Second : If the draft vas not enforced *ac
1 cording to the programme laid down with
~ I such a flourish of trumpets by the g< vern*
• j incut, why vas it not 1 And it by should
" j the government talk ab >ut another draft u:t
'• J til it enforces the last one in all localitie
' ; where a deficiency yet remains 1 It is nor
1 j to be supposed, after the emphatic
! of governtront officials to the contrary, that
1 j the President refrained from enforcing tlu*
L , | draft in any locality before the election for
I ; political reasons, and yet we have heard of
j supplementary drafts in Washington and of
a draft ordered, and then postponed, in
" | Kentucky. What is the meaning of these
| reports? Is it true that the last draft still
' ; remains unenforced in any part of the coun
Jtrv ? If so, the government can't be too
- I quick in completing it, and until thtv do
; this, there should bono talk of enforcing
-• another draft in those Sta'es which have filled
i their quotas.—E.c.

not been Verified in the progress of this War. y
But to the contrary, also to show, that jour e
1 course in this Wat has been nefarious—and , p
j deserving of the highest censure.

have been making rapid progress in fully, |
vice, shame, and marked profligacy.

and embittered feelings. Neighbors who 1
used to respect and esteem each other, now j

, r. o EH.— \mong the many humorous
, things from tlie army, the best we have
i j have heard is one related of a certain pious
j- gcr.tletnau connected with that good and wor
i | thv institution, the Christian Commission,
j which is to this effect. The P. G. of the C.
I\ was on a vis.t to the hospitals near \<<rk
, town, giving consolation and courage to the
po r fellows who have been w< uuded, or
| taken ill while in the trenches before Rich*
inond. Seeing one soidier who seemed to be
almost dying, the good man approached him,
and after inquiring as to his disease, he in a
most pious and feeling manner beseeched the
dying man to iv-ign himself to his fate, and
I - °
to ask lorg'v ne.-s for his sins, and closed his
, | exhortation bv asking him if he knew who
| bis Heavenly father was? This was toe
much for tho exhausted condition of the
, ■ wourdi d hi r >'s intellect, and with a look of
theTuo-t perfect astonishment and contempt,
after viewing the pious pilgrim from to
fot lie exclaimed in a feeble, sickly voice,
'Well, now, ain't this "a purty time to be

Revenue Department, and enlarge the sala

thousand, and other officers in.proportion.

the tax payers,
n earnest rivalry with Cincinnati in the bu
siness of meat packing, claiming that she is
the "porkopolis" of the present day. The j ]
Chicago Times anticipates that the business J
in pork-packing in the west will be more im- j
portant this year than ever—not that there !
will be a greater number ofanimals slaughter
ed, but because of the extraordinary prices .
prevailing. It says :
"There wll probably not be less than 3,- I
000,000 hogs packed in various portions of
the country, and at au average weight of 220 ,
pounds, each hog will be worth §20,40, and
the total number worth over seventy nine
million dollars, and if Chicago packs 800,000,
which is not an extravagant estimate, her
proportion of the business will be over twen t
ty-oue millions !"
Last year Chicago packed 904,059 hogp— j
This year, since the commencement of the j
packing season, (from Oct. Ist to Dec. 4th,)
Chicago received 504,214 hogs, and shipped
131.055, leaving fur the packers 372.559, which (
shows only a moderate deficiency compared
with the same months in 1803. Chicago al
so claims the foremost rank among western :
cities in the beef packing interest, having
packed last year over 70,000 head, worth at
least §4,000,000. This season the busines is
expected to in crease largely, as the packers
already have 02,000 animals, which is an ex ,
eess of more than 5000 in favor of ISGL
As regards the salt used in packing, a pre ,
fcrence is given to the Onondaga, compared i
with the Saginaw, on account of the latter
having no uniform grade. Michigan should
see that suitable inspectors are appointed.

the Surgeon of the same regiment, was lately i
murdered in Kentucky, by a band of guerril- ,
las. The dee'd, when killed, was sitting in j
the*parlor of a farmhouse in company with
the family. When the guerrillas rode up the
owner of the house went out and stated to
the leader of the band, that there were two j
Union officers inside who would surrender.—
The Captain of the hand replied, "we take no j
prisoners," and straightway, inhumanly sh t .
both Capt. MeCormick and the Surgeon.—
The Capt's remains were brought home this
week to his distressed parents.

World : "It is known in Washington tiia
England has been quietly organizing a large j
force of men, to be held in readiness for
some important duty. An order, moreover,
is known to have been issued, peremp'orily
refusing leaves of abserce to the officers of ;
several of the best regiments of the K ielish j
army, and the recent maivelous promptness
of Canadian au'hoiitiz-s in raising men,
even at the expense of an enforced draft, un
der the pretext of an apprehended invasion
by the Fenians, is thought to point clearly to
the fact that they had been instructed to'
seize the first opportunity of organizing all
available forces fui any emergency."
citizens have by this time learn
ed many new war phtazes, but the new
order recently issued by General Grant has
been construed as follows :
"On tu Richmond," that's tu say, if the
bussed rebels will allow it.
"Parallel lines," are them kind of lines
that never cum together.
"Military necessita,"— ten officejs and a
ealon of whisky to every three privates.

"Awl quiet on the Pottermuck"—this

"Pickets"—thesearc chaps that are sent
out tn borry tur'oackcr of the enama, and tu
ee if the cussed rebels has got a pass.
county Newspapers have raised their sub
scription price to §3 a year, with a deduction 1
of 50 cts. if paid in advance. The same thing j
has been done, as a matter of necessity, by !
the papers of several other counties. At the
present rate of expenses, no newspaper can
be printed, and yield its publishers a living, i
for less than §3 a year. If the paper makers' j
monopoly continues, all weekly new spapers
w ill be compelled to go up to §3 a year, or
slop.— Sunbury American.
Alarming Desertions from the Federal Ar
[From the Hartford Press, (Republican)
We speak of what we know when we say ,
that more men, on the James, desert from
our side to the rebels than desi rt from the
rebel side to ours. Day after day we are
filling our quota with scoundrels, theives, .
jail birds, hand dog bounty jumpers, known j
to be such by the substitute brokers, and
often by the officers whose business it is to
stop such outrageous swindling. Every day
hundreds of these rogues are sent to the
front. They do not add anything to the ar
my. They weaken it. They cannot be trust
ed, either as guards or pickets, or to go into
a skirmish or battle. They steal what they
can and then desert.
