AX UNJUST DISTI.VCTIOS.
The regulations governing the ac
ceptance ot recruits and drafted men
make, it seems, a distinction which is
b'tli unwise and unjust. It is this, that
a man who will not he received as a
volunteer will be taken if drafted. Cit
izens of this place who h.ive gone to
St. Paul to enlist, within the past few
days, have been rejected, but at th*»
same time informed that they would be
held as fit for military service if taken
by draft. Th regulations, it is ex-
plained, presume that a dratted man is
already in the .service, and that causes
which would exempt him must be such
as would discharge a soldier from the
service while in the ca of volunteers,
perfectly sound mer. are required.
The ill effects of such a distinction
are apparent at a glance. There are
many cases in which men with large
families, fearing that the quota of their
town will not he filled, determine
to enter the serviee voluntarily,
and thus obtain the local and Govern-
ment bounties, by which the loss of
their daily labor may be ins me degree
recompensed to those dependent upon
them for food. For some physical
disability they are rejected—still they
arc refused exemption papers, and are
liable at any time to be drafted, when
their families will be left almost liter
ally without the means of support.—
And there arc cases in which men ac
tuated by those high and noble feel
ings of patriotism, which we do not be-
lieve are all dead yet, spring forward
to struggle for the safety of the nation
but they are met with a rebuff and bid
wait till their names arc drawn from
The presumption up~n which this
distinction is founded seems to us aibi
trary and strained £'f't«r. If a man is
fit for a soldier, he should be taken
when he goes with his soul into the
work, if he is notfit.he should be left at
home. This presuming a man to be in
the army when he is not, and binding
him as a conscript when he would not
be taken as a voluntary recruit, tends
to make men affected by it stubborn
and morose in regard to filling our ar-
mies and to breed a spirit of insubordi
nation. What good effects art expect
ed to result from it. it is difficult to
One of the many contradictions to
which it leads, may be found in the de-
cision of the Provost Marshal General
in which he declares towns responsible
for drafted men who fail to report or
in other words, that* they are to be held
for the safe delivery of uien "already
in the service."
Let this unjust distinction be done
away with, in one way or the other
so that men who are capable of doing
duty in the field may step into the
ranks willingly, and not be compelled
to await the draft which is usually for
skulkers while those who are unfit for
service shall bo allowed to remain qui-
etly at home.

WASHINGTON, Feb. Hi,
Editors St Paul Pi-ess
The Railroad Hi'l passed the House to
day extending .)»«? lime for ilie completion
of t'io Miniuwota Land Giant Railroads
vight years mid granting four additional
sections to each road.
This will help out our Railroad com
panies ertatly. To the indefatigable
efforts ot) our Minnesota delegation in
connecti- with the Superior Railroad
Company. ,wc owe the establishment of
the precedent o? giving ten ctions of
laud per mile which now enures to the
benefit of the other companies. We
presume the bill will pass the Senate
without much difficulty.
It must be some great service that
could wing from the Press such com
mendation as the above of "the youth
ful representative" of tins District.—
The truth is, Mr. Donnelly is one of
hardest working Congressmen Minne
sota has ever hal, and the result of his
efforts can be seen, and his influence
judged, by just such benefits as this
hat he has secured for the State. We
are glad to see that the Press is inclin
ed to render him deserved credit, even
at the eleventh hour.
We take the following extract from a
private letter received from a gentle
man, formerly a resident ot St. Cloud,
now in Washington
"To morrow the Committee is expected
to report back Mr. Donnelly's Land Grant
Bill to the House, when it will be imme
diately put upon its passage, if the o» igi
nnl has not been too seriously altered by
the Committee. The outside pressure is
very great, and much low cunning has been
resorted to to fix the terminus of the Su
perior road at Crow Wing** (this is the
branch expected to come to St. Cloud) thus
cutting your place off. Mr. Donnelly has
had several severe engagements with the
Committee, in which lie bravely defended
the interestB of St. Cloud. This importaut
bill is now hanging in the balance. 1 hope
it may ^o threugh all right, but there is
much in tha way ot an easy passage."
We learn that this move was defeat-
ed, and the road is to run to St. Cloud

of the heavens, moving slowly toward the
north, where it sank below the horixon.
At times it appeared about as large and lu
minous as the full moon, and anon it would
nicker and diminish in size, like a burning
candle subjected to the action of the wind.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14th, -'l§66.
Enifoit l)jfc£ockAT.-~F" suppose
your refers ktiow thai the Smithsoni-
an is burnel. tt was, ant still is, a
lalye brick-pile between the Potomac
and the Canal, in that part of Wash-
ington called "The Island," a part of
the city in which inbod) lives who can
find quitrtt*rs trl*ewhere. It is low, mud-
dy, miasmntic, unhealthy. The dis:in
guishing features of this low ground
are the Washington Monument, still
unfinished, and this Smithsonian now
burned. The Litter was built with
money bequeathed to tht* government,
t»y an Englishman named Smithson,
"for the promotion of human uowL
edge." After years of dispute, debate
and consultation in Congress, it was
concluded that human knowledge could
best be promoted by making a brick-
pile on the Island, having it hollow in
the middle and there collecting some
dead Egyptians, live snakes, pictures,
papers, well paid professera and other
precious rtlics Fat contracts were
given out to men who did what they
could to remedy the mistake of build
ing the house, by patting in "defective
flues," and so ensuiing the burning
down ot this national blunder. Luxu
rious quarters were provided in it for
the mummies, the professors and the
snakes. A fine lecture room was fitted
up, and shuttrd up, and locked up,
consecrated like all the other portions
of the building, to dead men and dead
subjects—all but the snakes.
Iu the winter of '62 the dear, dead
professor who there reigns supreme
over the other relics, consented, by aid
of a medium I presume, to permit the
Washington Lecture Association to
have a course ot lectures there. When,
lo and behold he and the ether mum
mies narrowly escaped being brought
to life by the sound of such voices OK
those of Wendall Phillips and Horace
Greeley. They visibly shook in their
wrappings, and from then until now no
live man has been permitted to open
his mouth in that hall, on any topic of
news less ancient and interesting than
the formation of the glaciers, or the
d»ys when this continent was covered
five hundred feet deep in ice. The use
made of that Smithsonian iund is a Na
tional disgrace, scarce hightened by the
burning caused by "defective flues"
which it is now said were known- from
the first to be detective. If the nation
rebuilds the structure it is to be hoped
that some use will be made ot it, hav
ing some bearing on the present and
future of humanity and that the "hu-
man knowledge" there promoted may
have something to do with the human
race, and promote the happiness of the
future for the many, rather than the
curiosity of the few, whose only human
lite is in the ariti-Adaniic ages of the
world. May Smithsonian knowledge
get down to some epoch subsequent to
the time when Adam lived, or Pharaoh
died, but never until then may the
house be rebuilt.

anitattd from the Minntiota Steals Ztitwsg.
In our last issue it wis briefly raen
iioncd that the legislative Committee
instructed to investigate whether the
Stats was not unduly burdened in re
gard to 'it's quota, had reported among
other things, that the reduction of our
3111 ta from the original amount asked
to ita present moderate measure, was
principally due to the efforts of Gover-
nor Miller. We now have more close
ly examined the report of the commit
tee, and from the official correspondence
between the Governor and the Provost
Marshal General it appears that Gov.
Miller's merit in this important matter
is great indeed. 11 is letters, furnishing
a lucid statement of our claims, are re
markable for the decided language in
which they are couched, and which did
not fail to attain .the result desired
But it was not to mere lette.*-Writing
that the Governor limited his efforts,
to secure our rights, but in, person re
paired to Washington. The result of
this exertion was, that 800 men under
former calls were .credited to the State,
and the Government accounts remodel-
ed according to our figuring.
More essential yet was the service
rendered the State, by the Governor af
ter the late call, when the -claim of the
Government was reduced from 5978 to
To show the reader to what extent
we are indebted to our Governor for
this reduction, we extract, the following
paragraphs from.his last letter:
1 would also remark that, taking
the vote of the loyal States at the re
cent Presidential election ass basts, our
proportion of thrs* hundred thousand
men would not exceed throe thousand.
I should also state that as early as
March, 1864, I requested that meas
ures be taken by the Piovost Marshal
General to prevent the departure of en
rolled men from Minnesota, unless upon
special permission from the National or
State authorities, and the response in
duced me to believe that the drafted
men who failed to report would be con
sidered and arrested as deserters by the
United States Government, snd would
therefore be credited to the State.
"The heavy contributions already
made to the army, and the constant ap
prehension of Indian raids by small
parties of savages along a frontier of
several huudrcd miles, has so prostra
ted our people,' that a demand for 5,978
men would I fear, dishearten and dis
courage the most loyal and active sup

nation may be attended as will remove

the excessive quota exacted from the
State, and encourage the sub-districts
to raise their respective quotas by se

This language, as strong as it is api
proprtatc, had its desired effect, and
should our State this time succeed'in
avoiding a draft, or palliating its op
pressiveness, it will indebted therefor
to the fortunate circumstance only that
a courageous, faithful and wide-awake
official stands at the helm ot its govern
ment—a man whom no selfish crav

superiority may be claimed for the LA PE
