regiment where there is an open chance for
promotion,;than an old one where the of
fices will be claimed by those who have serv
ed faithfully during the war. It is, therefore,
mainly from thia class tliat we muht hope to
fill the new regiment and battery. . If we
can accomplish this we shall have the old
regiments filled with new recruits, who, by
the side of the veterans, will in a very short
time become themselves veterans, and thus
we sliall effectuaily promote the efficiency of
both old and new regiments.
T here are in every town in the state, a
sufficient number of returned nine months'
meii to fill the quota of the town for deficien
cy under the draft. Hut I regret to say that
that class of men seem reluetant to re-enlist.
And yet, in some way thty must be induced
to do so. The country needs their services.
The state requires thera for filling up the
17th regiment and the battery, and if they
hold back and refuse to respond to the call
of the country, and of the state, the honor
of the state will be tarnished by a disgraceful
fa lure to accomplish what t has undertaken.
I have no fear but that in two weeks from
this time the people of the state will be j
aroused to the necessity of raising men, and j
a degree of excitement will exist which will j
ensure the laising of the quota under the
300,000. When that state of public feeling
exists it will be infinitely easier for the tosrns
to make up also their deh'ciency under the
draft, than it will be at a later day, after the
excitement shall have subsided. If they re
gard their own interest they will "strike
white the iron is hat."
I wisb you to present these views and such
others as may occur to you, fully and explic
itly to the selectmen and loyal citizens of the
several towns within you district. Impress
upon them the xluty, and absolute necessity
of raising their several quotas of the 300,000
required. It is idle to say, that with six
weeks before us, in which to work, we cannot
do voluntarily, what we knoio we can be and
shall be compelled to do at the expiration of j
that time. But also impress upon them the i
duty and importance of filling their entire
quotas, of taking advantage of the present
opportunity and placing themselves again in
a position where they can rest from their la-
bor, with the satUfaction of knowing that
they have occomplished all that is required 1
of them. Urge them to impress upon
those of the returned nine months' soldiers,
who can, and should re-enlist, the duty of re
enlisting at the present time. It is but very
little more work to raise 5.000 men than to
latse 3,000. I believe it can be accomplished ,
and I most earnestly desire that may be. j

Dr. Walters, an Indiana scout, captured
in Georgia, and just released from llichmond,
says the deaths of our raen in the Itichmond
hospitals average 4i a day, and that most of
them get their de'ath warrants on Belle Is
land. This sandy desert is low, damp, swept
with winds, and wrapped in fogs. Our men
are without blankets, and but one-third of
them sheltered under mold-eaten tents. All
the starved sicken instantly, and run down
with frightful rapidity. Four dogs, enticed
to the island during the twenty days that
Walters was confined there, were greedily
cooked and joyfully eaten. In the hospital
to which he was transferred, the sole diet
was corn bread, made up without salt. Not
u beef animal has come to llichmond in
twelve days. Virginia is swept for food; so
are tne border pnrtions of North Carolina,
Tennessee and Kentucky. Five thousand
Union prisoners are now on the way to
Lynchburg and Danville, for easier access to
such food as can be reached. Walters' pic
ture of waste time and cunning in a vain
endeavor to entice the more confiding one of
four fat pups from a slut seated outside a
fence, which coops our raen on Belle Island,
to trot under.it to be eaten up.is one of ghastly
humor, and a sure measure of the misfortune
to which our friends so speedily Buccumb in
that Golgotha.
Soldiers' Pay.A Washington dispatch
says a bill will be introduced into Congress
early in the session to have the bounty of
soldiers paid in monthly installment in ad
dison to their monthly pay. This will make
their stated pay S'30 per "month instead of
Imi'ortaxt to Pexsio.v Agents. All per
sons transacting business with the pension
office will be required to file in that office ev
idence that they have taken eut the license
required by the excise law. This fact mav
be shown by a certificate from the collector I
from whora their license was obtained, or by J
a copy of the license d'dy authenticated
The idenity of the dead soldier who was
found on the bloody fieid of Gettysbur,
with the picture of his three pretty little
children tightly clasped in his hands, has
been ascertained within a dav or two. The
wide publicity given to the touching circum
stance through the medium ot the press pro
duced the desired result. The name of the
deceased was Hummerton, and his widow
and three children reside at Portville, Cat
teraugus county, New York.

The Work to Do.
It is no time to discuss abstract questions,
or to moralize about this or that policv. It
is altosetber too late to augue the moral
right of going to war; we are already in a
gigantic struggle for liherty and life even,
and the only question is how to carry on this
war to a successful tenuinalion. We have
left this question for the decision of an able
and we believe honest administration. This
administration has decided that the only way
in which to bring about a peace that shail be
enduring is to fill up our armies already in i
the lield and subdue by force ihe rebels now
in arms. To this end the President has call
ed for 300,000 more men, and he has given
the loyal states their choice, either to till up I preparations for thanksgiving next Thurs

It is useless to regret what Congiess has done

The Dedication of Gettysburg Cem
etery. Our readers arc aware that a part of the
battle-field at Gettysburg has been purchased
as a cemetery for the remains of the brave
Union defenders who fell on that bloody
field. We do not know who first conceived
the idea of a national cemetery at Gettys
burg, but the thought was a happy one, and
its consecration on last Thursday was one of
the most imposing and touching scenes con
nected with this unholy rebellion. The
President and members of the cabinet were
present, there was an imp.ising civic and
military display under command of Gen.
Couch, and an address by Edward Everett
which is unequalled even by the productions
of that eloquent man. As a matter of his
torical research it will well repay a careful
perusal. We hope to give a portion of it in
our next paper.
The closing speech of the occasion was by
President Lincoln, and we append it entire
below. Of this the Snrincfield ReDublican
says : Surpassingly fine as Mr. Everett's
oratbn wasin the Gettysburg consecration.the
rhetorical honors of the occasion were won
by President Lincoln. His little speech is a
perfect gem ; deep in feeling, compact in
thought and expression, and tasteful and el
egant in every word and comma. Then it
has the merit of unexpectedness in its verbal
perfection and beauty. We had grown so
accuslomed to homely and imperfect phrase
in his productions that we had come to think
it was the law of his utterance. But this
shows he can talk handsomely as well as act
The following is the Epeech :

Facts which the times are developing show
that the condition of the Boston sewiug girls
is little above that of their New York sisters.
There are fifty sewing machine establishments
in the city and vicinity which employ on an
average loO girls each, and their average
wages is only $2.50 to $3 a week, which is
hardly more than they have to payforboard,
while mnny do not make as much, and are
therefore sorely pressed. The prices paid
girls in other shops are also less than the
bare cost of living.

The Knoxville Whig and Rebel Ventilator
of the 11th has the lollowing : Since the
Union army has taken possession of East
Tennessee, many very wealthy Union men
have been cruelly murdered by the villain
( iis rebels in arms, as&isted by perjured citi
zens who had come forward and taken the
oath. Murder, treason, robbery, infamy and
ruin are the order of the day in the counties
above and below Kuonville. In the upper
counties, they have shot down and otherwise
murdered Union men and women ; and the
soldiers, turning out in bands of marauders,
have robbed the families of everything in
their houses and on tlieir farms. Wherever
ihey were unable to carry off all that they
found, the thieving villains have destroyed
it, berning private prwperly and burning all
before them. They have, within a few weeks
past, murdered old men in the presence of
their families, com.Tiitti;ig crueland infamous
atrocities that would disgrace wandeiing
Arabs. In Washington county the other
day, they murdered Kev. Mr. Bowman of
the Dutch church, in cold blood, and upon
no other pretext than that he was a Union
man. In the counties of Blount, Monroe,
Hamilton and Bradley below Knoxville,
they have recently committed some of the
most atrocious murders ever known to this
hell-born and hell-bound rebellion. They
marched an old man man named Smith out
from his house in Blount county, and shot
him down in the road. He was in his GOth
year, and left a poor and helpless family of
nine persons who had been dependent upon
i::slaborjfor their daily bread. The only charge
was that he was a Liticolnite. They cru
elly murdered liev. Len Carter, and one of1
his sons in Bradley county, and the charge
was that he was a Lincolnite Methodist
preacher. They cut the throat of the Itev.
Mr. Blair of Hamilton county, a Baptist
preacher, in the presence of his family, and
his offen.se was that he was a Union man.
They murdered C. Carter of Bradley county
in like manner, as refugees from that quarter
report to us. They are said to have mur
dered two of the Carsons in Monroe countv.
for no provocation whatever. They murder-
ed Kev. hliram Douglas of the Presbyterian
church, under circumstances that would dis
grace any Algerian mob. They shot down
a man by the name of Coseart, for no other
offense than that he was a Union man. And
these are only items in the long list of wrongs
and crnelties daily peruetrating by a set of
scoundrels acting under leaders who have
been false to their allegiance, to their friends,
their neighbors, tlieir states and their nation.
