ESKOLLMSNX OF COKSCKIPTS,
As the earoUmeat of censenpts is now pro
gressing ia this aad other States, a recurrence to
the act of Congress on the subject may not bo
oat ef the place. The act provides that not over
two castns ef iastroctioBS shall bo established
in any State, each of which is to be assigned to
an officer not below the rank of major. The
whole doty of this officer is comprised in taking
charge of "the enrollment, mastering in, sub
sistence, transpertetton, and disposition or re
cruits" raited muter the act. He is required to
make application to the executives of tho seve
ral States for permission to employ State officers
for the daty of enrollment, and only upon such
permission being refused can the War Depart
ment take charge of tho matter through its own
officials. And "where State officers are employ
ed," says the enactment, "the regulations of the
respectit States, in regard to military enroll'
meat, must ie observed as far as applicable."
The 19th seotioa of the law in regard to ex-
eatptkxx roads as follows :
Parsons claiming exemption from military
duty under this act shall be required by tho en
rtfilinp n&ctr to make oath that they are law
fully exempt, and shall be furnished by him with
a certificate oj tttch exemption."
We thiak that the true purport of this section
js been nnsuaderstood to a great extent by
some of the government officials. Its object is
to relieve sack parties as are palpably exempt,
from the useless trouble of reporting themselves
at a distant camp of instruction, and at the same
time to save the government from the expenses
of their transportation, which in the aggregate
is no small item. The practice in Georgia and
other States is for the enrolling officers of the
various counties to give certificates of exemp
tion based npoo certificates of disability obtained
from "any regular army surgeonSn good stand
ing." Tnis is tae true intendment or tne law
of Congress oa the subject and no apology for
its evasion ought to be tolerated or accepted.

Cofpbville, August 15, 1862.
Editors Api'bal: I have taken the follow
ing statistics from Mitchell's School Atlas, and,
although your able editorials have often set
forth the same facts, while your trumpet elo
quence stirred our hearts and girded us for the
battle, yst the view of them herein taken will
supply perhaps a word of enconrsgament to the
desponding, and perhaps nerve some soldiers to
arm for the great struggle before us. I will
further add that in our efforts cbeer up" under
gloomy events and sad reverses, wo have
sometimes been too sanguine, and stated our
resources at higher figures than facts would
jusury. J. tie masses were deceived, ana are
now suspicious of all statements made to them,
and I have on this account drawn my facts
from a book in tho hands of every family a
common school atlas so that the reader' can
easily rectify them. They &to from the statistics
of 1850, and a reasonable allowance can be
made for the intervening decade.
My proposition is simply tbis : We can raise
more soldiers than tho United States can?
The tables above referred to show that they
had, in 1850, militia, to-wit: men between 13
and 45, 1,200,000. (I use only round numbers.)
That Southern States had 600,000. Thus far
they have trr o for one; but let us go on. They
have 4,000,000 negroes, while we have 3,000,000.
Ours are employed in agriculture, while theirs,
living for the most pait in towns and cities, are
boot-blacks, shop-keepers, scullions and vaga-
oonus, anu cannot ds rendered available in pro
ducing subsistence for anarmy. Their four mil
Monmust therefore bo put down as an absolute
incumbrance, and their legislation to prevent
this species of emigration shows their own view
ot it. or no state would impede au emigration
which enriched the commonwealth.
Ours, on the other hand, are the best agricul
turists in the world, and the 300,000 give by ratio
oi s ma laDies uu,vuu a Dove toe age ot fifteen.
Or, in other words, 700,000 laborers who, in war,
are as useful, as soldiers.
There is but one othsr class of citizens,'"!, e.
those under 15 and over 45. both in the North
and South, and although they (tho North) hav
a majority in tnis class, it must be remembered
J that vast numbers of them are manufacturers
and tradesmen, whose habits of life preclude
them from turning their attention to agriculture.
They thereforo produce nothing from the soil,
and trade being destroyed, are, like the colored
population, an incumbrance. I will say, how
ever, that tbis class in the Nerth, and the negroes
there, do not incumber the commonwealth, but
simply support themselves, and any tolerably
well informed person will say that 1 have done
them ample justico. Than how does the" argu

It will bo recollected tbat about four years

time, beinsr a merchant in Aspinwall, had a
zinc coffin made, in which she was placed, and
also a quantity of alcohol, the whole then im
bedded in ch&rcod in a stilllarger coffin, for tha
purpose of preserving her, its it was her hus
band's intention ot Having per remains sent to
England; but shortly afterward he took sick
himself and died, as also his child. The body
tben remained in tho cemetery undisturbed, until
a short time ago, instructions were received from
hor relations in England to have the bodv ex-
burned and interred in thojcathedral. On open
ing the coffin it was found to bo pelsififed end
perfectly marble-like, but strange to gay, as
quick as the air got to tho body it changed to a

Sredl Correspondence of the Memphis Appeal
Since my last letter, Malvern Hill has again
ifallen into our possession, without a struggle
th0 only "force" encountered by our advancing
army consisting of a squad of. videttes, who
were 60 badly frightened that they ran, bolter
skelter, into our lines, luto so many crazy
chickens, and were captured, of course. All is
quiet now along the James. The enemy's gun
boats have within the last fow days been en
gaged in miscellaneous sholl-practico, against
the woods and farm houses, below City Point,
doing considerable damago to piivnto property
but effecting no object of material military im
portance. McClollan's army at Berkoloy is still
lying in tho snnshino, fighting musquotoes, and
waiting for something to turn up.
Tho telegraph has already announced to you
another brilliant achievement abovo Gordons-
ville, which has opened the ball for operations
in that qnarter. Tho particulars of tho affair,
as far as they have reached us, describe a spir
itod engagement, on the Orango and Alexandria
railroad, twenty miles above Gordons villo, be
tween considerable bodies of both armies, the
movement upon the Confoderato side being
directed by General Jackson. It commenced on
Saturday morning, and continued for several
hours, raging fiercely, until at length, the Fed
oral forces gavo way to a decisive defeat, leaving
in our nanus over luieo nunuroa prisoners,
including Brigadier-General n. Prince, Colonel
George D. Chapman, of the 5th Connecticut ;
Adjutant-General G. B. Halstead, of Augur's
division; Assistant-Adjutant-General W. D.
Wilkins, of Williams' division ; Major E. W.
Cook, of the 2Sth New York, and twenty-four
captains and lieutenants. The whole number
arrived by the Central train this morning at four
o'clock. The namo of the other captured gen
eral I have not yet been able to learn.
A participant in tho engagement gives a lively
description of a hand-to-hand conflict between
ouo of tho Confoderato and one of the Federal
regiments. Tho former advanced rapidly upon
the latter ; neither fired a gun, though each had
an equal advantage to pour a destructive volley
into one another's ranks before they closed. In
a few moments thoir bayonots wore crossed, and
the struggle commenced. Each man seemed to
have his match, and here and there, amid tho
clash of arms, one man would fall, pierced
through the heart Around them the battle was
raging, volley alter volley of musHetry, and
boom after boom of artillery echoed amid the
hills. Yet they fought on with cold steel, as if
determined only to crimson their bayonets in
one' another's blood. But scarcely fifteen
minutes had elapsod before the Federal front
began to waver, and onr mon taking advantage
of tho indication, redoubled their energies, and
rushed amid thom with unparalleledimpetuosity,
The enemy broke and fell into confusion, aud
the Confederates, now uncontrollable, dashed
upon them, and left scarcely ono in tlio enttro
Federal regiment " to tell the tale."
No report of tho losses on either side havo yet
reached us. .
Tne temptation is irresistible to recount an
incident of tiie interview held, this morning, be
tween General Winder, the "military command
ant of the Richmond district, and General Prince
General Winder is possessed naturally, perhaps
unfortunately, of a peculiarly brusque and vin
dictive disposition, and novor permits an oppor
tunity to pass in which he can exhibit his just
hatred of tho Yankee race. A repsesontative of
Pope's army was, therefore, a delicious morsel,
As soon, sir," said he to Prince, " as I can
make tho proper arrangements, I shall lock you
up in duugeon." "But" began the cap
tive general. " No, sir, no huts, sir, to mo," in
terrupted General Winder, "you have been
permitted to stop at the Exchange hotel, as a
courtesy, a courtesy you don't dosorvc none of
you." "at, general," ogam broke in tlie
prisoner, and as soon again interrupted General
Winder, No, sirKstop no huts I say, sir, all
of you are a sit of thieving, murdering scoun
drels, you cannot bo considered prisoners of war,
you don't deserve it and you won't receive it,
sir. As soonj sir, as I can prepare a dungeon
you shall go in it. That will do, sir." And
with this, Gen. W. handed him over to tho
guard and sent him back to tho Exchange,
where ho will have but a brief enjoyment of tho
luxur.os of hotel life just brief enough, per
haps, to render him more sensible of the roali ty
of tho dungeon in which ho is to be confined
On yesterday, the entire front of tho enemy
was forced book by the columns of Jackson, and
to day the news comes that thoy are still retreat'
ing. it remains yet to bo seen wiietaer ropo
will retire from the base he has established,
which is now considered impregnable, shielded
as it is by mountains and hills, which furnish
positions against which scarcely any forco could
make an impression sufficiently violent to i ustify
its abandonment. Perchance Jackson may in
aURurato ono of his sudden "roar movements H
which will effectually upset their entire pro'
gramme. We shall see.
The arrival of exchanged Confoderato pris
oners from the North has created somo excite
ment in military quarters, and given stray offl
cers and government military clerks something
to do. All of the privates are being gathered
in camp for distribution to their separate regi
ments, and tne oiucers aro permuted to onjoy
themselves in the meantime, after first reporting
themselves and their whereabouts. -
The weather continues intensely hot. The
thermometer is deemed quite an unnecessary in
dicator of tho temperature, and might as well be
kept in the ice houses for all the comfort they af
ford to "snflenng humanity. Under such cir
cumstances, it is impossible to conjure up that
pleasant flow of thought so essential to tho pro
dnction of a readable epistle. The friends of
tho Atpeal must thereforo pardon the sterile ver
biage of this lotter and draw from its material,

cause of the disturbance is not clearly stated,
but is understood to have been caused by Irsh
and' German stevedores trying to prevent their
fellows from working for less than had been re
cently paid them. The rioters at one time over
powered the police, during which time Chief
Dullard and others ot the force were severely ht-
lured, finally several of the ringleaders ware ar
rested, but not until the officers' revolvers were
used. Two rioters were shot but not danger
The mayor ordered tuo militia under arms,
but their services wore not needed. A renewal
of tho disturbance is expected to-day.
