the population oi Canada was true. to itself,
it could preserve it ludependenee without

The Geuersl Order of Gov. Hoi brook for
completirrg the quota af Vermont towards
the SCO.GOO men for three yean or dnring
tbe war, appears in our columns to day.
Twelve hundred of the nsmber are to fill up
tbe ohl regiments now in the service. If
tho whole qnota (which includes thoee 1
reaiy enlisted for tlie 9th, 10.Ii aud 11th
regiments) is not mado up by volunteers by
the 18th int., tbe de&eiency is to be filled
I r,7 draft
The advantage, as th Governor'1
statements us to extra pay make it, in
a ptrui'iary ioit,t of vicw.to volunteers over
drafte l men, i very great, and we hope
there wil, be a plenty to avail themselves of
it. There are enough able bodied men of
prop r military age who onght to step for
ward with alacrity. They are to lie f ;und
in ail employments, trades and professions
rone are too good, none are too neb. none
too poor to serve in tbe cause of their
country. The sound oi mastering volun
teen by thousands comes up to us from other
States all around. Already some States
have their quotas complete. We hope Vtr
mont will not be found to lick a man 1 o
lore the week is up. There are enough un
der 18 and over 45, with those who are not
sound enough of body tor military service,
and the women, to carry on the employ,
menu of life at home. Every able bodied
man should at once answer to his country's
call : ' here am I."
