: The enrollment under the conscript law in New
York city exhibits either pro -4 partisaa corrup
tion or inexcusable official carelesne?s. Tbe
report of the Judge Advocate General to Gor.
ScTMocr., to which we have heretofore referred,
demonstrate the outragei which hare been com
mitred in the Democratic districts in that State
most concln?irely. Here are few facts which
it wilt be well for the people of the country to
consider and reconsider, for they illustrate tbe
manner which the party in power u atterupV
log to enforce that odious enactment:
la the Second Ward in New York city the
whole population it lfc'6f) wis 2.607; males 20 to
49847. The enrollment of the first clae in
this ward is 1,646! The full vote of the ward is
only 450. ..
Nineteen districts which gare a rote of 457557
with Republican majorities, are to furnish 39,626
conscripts, while nine districts which gare Demo
cratic majorities, on a rote of only 151,243, are
required to fumUh 33.729 soldiers!
Twelre tlistricta which gave SxTK.ra majori
ties on. a rote of 1S6.255, are to furnish 49,237
conscripts, while sixteen districts, which gare
Wadswobth majorities, on nearly double the
rote of the other twelve, to-wit: 253, 621, are to
furnish fewer conscripts, namely, 33,068.
Seven districts in. New York and Brooklyn
are to furnish two-fi fibs of the whole draft,
while twenty one other districts only furnish
three fiitb!
- The Adtninistratisn has shown favoritism in
other repects ia the enforcement cf the draft.
The authorities at Washington gave the State of
New Jersey the opportunity to fill her quota by
enlistments when tbe same privilege was denied
to New York. Tbe New York Herald, in com
menting upon this action of tbe Administration,
remark: ...
' The mult is that volunteers : hire presented
themselves in Urge u umher, with every prospect
that the entire quota of New Jersey will be made
up before the expiration of tbe time granted
them. .The Urge bounties offered hare also at
tracted the attention of meu in this city, and w
are asstfeed that a Urge number bare gne over
td New Jersey and enlisted, preferring to rolun
teer and obtain the large bounty to running the
risk of the draft at home.
Now. if President Lineola suspends the draft
in one Sute and gives the people an opportunity
to fill their quota by volunteering, what is there
to prevent his persuing the same course here?
What cUim has New Jersey over the Stale of
New York? Why should she be treated leniently
whilst New York, which has furnished tbe meint
to carry ob the . war, is forced into
bloody scene.? Certainly our citizens are
none the lea patriotic. The books at Washing
ton show that ehe has answered every demand
made on her for men and money. It is true that we
hare had riot, which the fanatics bare labored
In vaia to prove was an insurrection to benefit the
South.' But President Lincoln must bear in mind
thai in bo other city hve the people been goaded
aa thev hare is New York by the journals that
pretended to represent his riews. The Tribune,
Times and Post hare been for months insulting
portion of our people by their diatribes and
isms ol all kinds, no einer city oas na any
thine in eomoarison to it. No time or opportu
nity baa beets loot by those journal in driving oe
portion of our citizens into oppostuou to me Aa
ministration. -.In this condition an attempt was
Made ta enforce the draft. The result u too di
graceful to repeat. - New Jersey at that time was
giren the apportunity to resort to enlistments,
aad Äew lork refwsed that boon.
D ies not this, alter all. look as tho eh the
Administration was -backing np the radicals in
taew eetenniwa'ioa to brtnz bloodshed and de
traction apon this city? But Mr. Lincoln says
"time" is important If time is important for
few York why is it aot for New Jerser? Ut
York is ahead on all former calls, whilst New
Jersey is behind. Will Mr. Lincoln explain?
Tb Administration officials commenced . some
four weeks ago to draft in this city, but they hare
not oouunea one conscript from tbis city ret
New it ia well known thatoo the Friday and
Saturoay previous to tbe riots sit hundred an en
enlisted ia this city .It is stated by antboriu
tire sources that one thousand enlisted in this
city last week, and wer taken to tbe camp on
Staten Island. . Bf which system is the most men
obtained? Hew mach better it ) bare been
alt concerted If, instead of the President and
be Goftrnor spending tbe time sine, 9 r ju
wrangling over the enrollment and the quota,
the President had at once announced that the
draft would be suspended lor thirty or sixty days,
and the State giren an opportunity to fill its
quota by enlistments, the same as in New
Jersey. Accompanying that statemeut should
hare been the announcement that the draft would
be enforced at the expiration of. that period for
all delinquencies. Tbe people would then have
taken hold of the matter and offered large lioun
ties. If one thousand can be enlisted in this
city in one week, under the present circumstances,
what is to prevent five times that number beinz
obtained, with increased bounties and a universal
effort to obtain recruit? Tbe claims for dam
ages agaiiift the citr ftr the destruction of prop
erty amount to nearly one and a half millions.
Suppose tbe city had appropriated that amount
be lot e the draft commenced, in bounties; is there
any person who doubts that with an additional f um
to the State and United States I ounties the quota
of this city could hare been obtained? Would it
not hare been far belter for the reputation of all
concerned? Had we not belter spend a like
amount in bounties than another such sum for
property destroyed?

Strength or thk Armies to be Frittered
Awat The Armt or the Potomac to be
Kept Ixactiti The Fruits ok thk Policy
Special Correspondence of the Chicago Times.
Washington, August 11.
The militarr policy of the Administration for
the summer tnd fall campaigns i? now definitely
a e reed upon. So far as it relates to the Army of
the Potomac, it is o distasteful to General Meade
(because it is o uiiwi that that gullant and
able officer has asked to be reliered of his com
mtnrl. That policv is as follows: To keep the
500.000 or 600,000 men comprising the Union ar
mies scattered at di?lnnt points, orennged in a
number of disconnected little eiptdiüons, ech
one of them having no relittioii to any jenen I
plan; to send all the veteran troops in the Eist
th-4t can be spared to Charleston, in order to e
cure the reduction of that city ; to fill up the deci
mated and depleted regimrnts of the Army ol
the Potomac with conscript, but to act on the
defensive with that army until the cool weather
of the fall; or, if Uen. Meade assumes the offen
sire at all, to compel him to cross the Rappa
hannock, to coutinne the pursuit of Lee's army,
and to force the latter to fipht somewhere be
tween th ;t stream and Ric!.mo: I.
This programme U the most unwise and inju
dicious that the wit of man could have conceived,
except in regard to a single point. If it is per
sisted in, it will result in failure and di.-ater at
II points except that one. That one is in re
gard to Charleston. Gen. Gilimore has been re
inforced aud is s'ill being reinforced, in a manner
and to an extentth.it no other Union General
has ever been favored. He baa command before
Char'eston, or will hare in a few days, of an
army exceeding in numbers either the army with
Inch ten. Orntit reduced V ichstuir, or with
hich Geu. McCielUn made his Peninsula cam
pain; and it is composed, too, of the bestdU
ciDlined troops in the service, with all the ap
pliances that are needed for the work. It is.
indeed, the firft time that Charleston has been
approached with a lorce at all adequate to its
reduction, or in the marjner indicated in n.j
letter of April 21. If Charleston can be taken j
at all, it must be in this manner And, nn
less the Confederates have concentrated there
at legist 75,000 troops, there is a probability,
at least, that the city will fall.
The present relative positions or the armies of
Gen Meade and Gen. Lee are such that it would
he mndncss in the former to attempt to reich
Ii elimond by the overland route, or even to cross
the Rappahtnnock and seek to bring on an en
gagement with the latter. Tbe whole countrv.
North and South, knows wbt the strength of
Geu. Meade's army w?s at the time Gen. Lee
eluded him and crossed the Potomac into. Yir
giuia, at Williamport, on the 13th ult. After
the fe.irfu! losses it had suffered at Gettysburg,
ml after being rein force I, on the HUhorllth,
by the troops recently in the Peninsuln, it did not
number orer ba.OUU or IHIU . men. It has not
been reinforced since, and, except bv sending con
scripts to it, the Administration will not further
reinforce it. It is idle to tilk about the 30,000
troor under Gen. Heintzleroan at this city, and
the 27 ,0t0 or 30,000 now uuder Geo. Morris at
Baltimore, who, in the absence of Sclienck, lias
been placed by the War Department in the com-
m md of the Middle Department. Those 60,000
troops will remain just where they are Neither
Lincoln, nor Stanton, nor Halleck could sleep
quietly at night if one of Heintrlemati' soldiers
should be sent away from here; while the safety
of the Baltimore .nd Ohio railroad, which was
opened to-day for the first time, for the through
trarel along its whole extent, from here to Par
kersburg, will require everr man of Gen. Morris'
30,000 troops, and 2),000 more besides. It were
well indeed for that roac, and for the country,
if Schenck would stay away altogether, for then
Gen Morris, who is a soldier, would take a sol
dier's method to protect the former.
Gen. Meade, then is to be reinforced by con
script tour readers can judge what kind of
soldiers they will make. After they have been
forced from their homes, they are put into a large
well lighted room, stripped naked, aud examined
all orer. by the agents of the Government, in
order to see if they are defective in any respect.
Alter this inhuman outrage, winch a man of any
delicacy would rather die th in submit to, they
are marched off to the cousenpt camps under a
strong guard, and thence immediately ser.t to the
army. On the way, it requires all the vigilance
of the guards to prevent their escape, and dozens
of them have already e-caped Eight or ten
cases hare occurred where the guards hare fired
upon conscripts thus endeavoring to escape, and
four men li;tve beeu killed in this way four men
who, a month ago, were free American citizens,
and who were torn from their fa m lies and forced
to fight in a war which they abhorred, because
they believed it to be unjust. Such men will not
make the best of soldiers
The regiments of the Armr of the Potomac
originally numbered 1,000 men each. There is
not one ngimeut thtt now numbers over 300
men. If thev are filled up to their maximum
strength, therefore, the army will be composed of
one third good soldiers, and one third raw recruits
and discontented men Call it half and half, how
ever, and say the army is raised in this manner to
laU,0tU men. C tn such an armr be depended
on? Tbe Administration thinks evidently not,
and therefore Gen. Me de is to spend tbe summer
and e fly part of the fall in holding the line of
the Rappahannock and in drilling his new re
emits. This does not Fuit Gen Me ide. He knows
very well that whatever passes in his camp is
known to Gen Lee in twenty four hours. He
knows that, when Gen Lee is convinced that the
Union army will not move, the rebel army will
move, and get in bis rear if possible; at all events,
will make it necessary for him to retreat to Wash
ington. So while Gen. Meade has not been rein
forced, Gen. Lee has been He came back from
Pennsylvania and re occupied the line of the
Rappahminock with 75,000 troops, and with 12,
000 fresh horses taken from the Pennsylvania
farmers. He has since bfn reinforced by 50,
tHX) troops from the West, making his present
strength not far from 150,000 men. Included in
this is a body of 25,1100 carxlry; 12.000 of them
Stuart's veterans, tbe rest new recruits.
Rather than pass the summer in this manner.
and be compelled to retreat to Washington and
r'uk the defe.it of his armr, and cut the capital
in peril; rather than do this. Gen. Meade would,
I believe, prefer to assume the offensive even
now, and Adrance across the Rtppabannock and
try to make Le Hirnt. 1 rue, this would be es
aclly what Gen Lee wishes him to do, and
what he is maneuvering to induce him to do
And if Ge. Meade, with 90.000 troops ia com
pelled or allowed to cross the Rsppahannock and
to fight Lee's 125,000 or 150,1X10 troops, the
country w'u! bold the Administration responsible
Tor the result.
The true policy ot the Government is to insti
tute and organize icsUntly a Peninsular cam
paign against Richmond, composed of 200,000
Li. I
veteran troops, supported oy a suiiaote narai
force, and to make the James River the line of
operations. That force is available. It would
only require the 60,000 troops indicated abore to
be added to Gen. Meade s present lorce. and ail.
COO more to be drawn from the West. While the
campaign was in progress, Washington could be
defended br jrolunteers Irom new xork end
Philadelphia, 50,000 of whom would ruah here
for that purpose. And the Baltimore and Ohio
railroad might safely be left to the protection of
Gov. Cnrtin, who. for the sake of the safety of
h's own Sute, would see that it was not mol'et-t
ed. ' X.
Ttie Possibility ol Iteslerlng the t'n
lon Hepublican View of the Ques
tion. We copy the following article upon "the possi
bility of restoring the Union," from the Spring
field Republican, the ablest Administration jour
nal in Massachusetts. The riews expressed by
the Republican are eminently worthy of consid
eration, and significant, too, considering the
source from which they emanate: -
William Whiting, solicitor of the War Depart
ment, has written a letter to the Union League
ol Philadelphia, in which be undoubtedly repre
sents the theories prevailing at the war office as
to the proper treatment of the revolted States,
and they are remm kable in being in exict oppo
sition to thofe frequently and distinctly declared
by the President and by Congress. It would
seem as if Secretary Stanton were at tbe head of
a little Government of his own a sort ofimper.
um in imperic and that it is not considered
that his department shall be in htrmony with the
rest of the Administration, either iu theory or
practice. Gov. Johnson, of Tennessee, acting
under authority from the President, has officially
assured the people of tbatSttte that he will issue
writs for the election of a Legislature at the ear
liest practicable moment; ihnt ia, ma soou aa the
rebellion is so thoroughly put down in the State
by the milit try arm that a general and free ballot
will be possible, aud aa the people ahill show a
disposition to tetuin to the Union. We supjose
this declaration indicates the President' policy,
and that Tennesre is not to be treated excep
tionally, tint th-tt the St-ite now occupied by tbe
rebel armies, will be permitted to return to the
Uiiiok in tliesume way whenever they are ready.
But Mr. Solicitor Whiting takes quite another
riew of the tiHtter. He supposes th.-tt after the
power of the rebellion is broken, the people of
the South will hue the Government and the
North as Utterly as ever; that they will still be
traitors at heirt. nnJ seek to" get back into the
Union only i i obt-tiit the power they have failed
to secure by fighting; thai they will make State
laws excluding Northern men mid Iree blacks,
destro; freedom of speech and of the press, and
send back to Congress the conspirators who have
brought civil war upon the country; and, finally,
"the ins.'itiity of State rights doctrines will be
nouiinhed and strengthened by admitting b-tik a
conquered people as our equ ls, aud i:s b meful
iiidtience c.uinot be estimated!" Mr. Whitirg
therefore protests agiinst allowing the Southern
States t ca tne hack into the Union until they
have changed their constitutions and abolished
shivery, nd he nrgue lli.it the rebellion has
given us the right to treat these Sutcs as Teiri
tories aud re admit them only on such conditions
as we may i-Iioom- to im;xse. Mr Whiting sums
up his Klicy of reconstruction btiefly as follows:
"Allow the inhabitants of conquered territory
to form themselves into Stntes, only by adopting
constitutions euch as will forever remove all caue
ol collision with the Uoitet .States, by excluding
shivery therefrom, or continue military gorern-
menlover the conquered district until there sbill
appear therein a snmcieut number ol loyal inhab
itants to form ii republican government which by
guaranteeing freedom to all shall be in accord
ance with the true spirit of the Constitution of
the United States."
We state the two theories without at this time
discussing them. Whether tbe President or his
war Secretary is right, and which ia likely to carry
his point at last, time willswu show. But what
we now question is the corre-U.f a of Solicitor
Whiting's assumption that the hostility of the
Southern people to (he Union will continue after
the iebel:ioti is crushed out. It may prove to
with the leaders, but all pre-ent indications go to
show that the I.ire majority of the Southern
people will take kindly to the Constitution aud
the old fi:ig again; that the wr hits taught them
to respect the Northern people, and has tli-sipa-ted
many of the political fictions by which they
were educated to become rebels. The fraterniza
tion ol Union and Confederate soldiers at Vicka
burg. Pri Hudson and elsewhere, so sincere and
hearty as to cause general surprise. U siginfic-tut
in his direction. The readiness of a large por
tion of the rebel prisoners to take the oath of
allegiance and eveu enlist in the Union rank;
the universal complaints of the lebel papers that
the Southern people sliow m. disposition to give up
their experiment aud Ulk abou'. a ret'irn to the
Union; the splurge of falsehood and bid rhetoric
with which Jeff. Divis attempts to counteract
that tendency these, and ro my like facts, daily
reported and increasing upon u, show the drift
of the Southern mind, and so very far to remove
the fear, or hope, expressed by S lit itor Whiting,
that the S inthern people will settle down into
sullen l;of-tiliiy to the Union after their defeat,
making it necessary eiiber to exterminate
them absolutely or to wait until another genera
tion is born and reared, before the Union can be
restored. ...
The account by the ctrrespondent of the New
York Times of the reception of Geu. Banks am1
staff at Natchez, Mississippi, on their way -to
Vick"burg, is very striking and suggestive:
While at Natchez, it was impossible not to
mark the evident spirit of friendliness which
greeted us, and which is so different from what
we might be led to expect from the teachings of
rebel leaders and their Northern sympathizers.
The fact is that matter luve gone so far now
that the people brderiug the Mississippi river
would become glad to see the old flag waving
undisturbed forever, and commence reuniting the
bonds so rudely torn asunder by designing
knaves and politician. When we came among
the upper classes, where animosity would be ex
pected to be most bitter, we found the feeling
still more remarkable. Not only at every house
they visited, did GetuB nks and his party receive
all that unbounded hospitality for which South
ern character is s respected, bnt in passing
among ihe rariou plantations, ladies on their
pjazzis ac'u tllv waved handkerchiefs at them.
The scenes und incidents now around as are of a
character to warm the heart and nourish the hope
of every true patriot in the land. Tbey are of
the deepest sL'tiificii.ce; and I am glad that
among the p.rtv was a British consul and the
captain 'if a French man of war, who would both
do well to co iiver f iithful impressions of these
things to their respective governments."
To the Mine purport is the testimony of the
Memphis Bulletin, after conversing with leading
men from nearly nil of the seven original rebe
States, when it sas:
"" 'Tis useless to lis.'uise the fact that the peo
ple of ihe South ie e irnc-tly anxious that the
United Si'e should mke some proposal of
peace on the Irakis ol a restoraiiou of the Union.
Nor will they be truh-ed by the opinions, riews or
feelings of those who h ive !el themntray. The
newspapers !onot rep-eent the sentiments of the
massas or the Sou'h. On the contrary, they (.the
newspaprrs) are ignored, and their sentiments
rureed by large proportion of the people. Our
Informant has traveled through Alabama, Geor
gia and western North Carolina, and has come to
the deliberate conclusion th tt the people are ripe
for the restoration of the Union on anything like
an honorable basis."
A 'correspondent of the Boston Trareler, at
Gen Meade's headquarters, writes:
"Within the last three dtys some twenty de
serters hare come atithln our lines at this place,
including an Orderly Sergeant from a Louisiana
regiment, who says he resides within forty miles
of New Orleans, and is desirous of returning to
his home. He reports that large numbers of
Lonisiiuians are watching for a ftvnrable oppor
tunity to desert, being anxious to return to their
home. . Mr informant also aays that the news of
the fall of Vicksburg and Port Hudson, and tbe
opening of the Mississippi, has greatly disheart
ened tbe Mississippi and Louisiana troops. This
feeling of discontent and despondency, he as
serts, is not confined to particular State regt
ments, but til save the Texatis are discouraged
at the present aspect of aff.iirs In the so called
Conredertcy. Quite a nombet have been placed
nnder arrest and confined in the guard house for
ottering language prejudicial to the Interest and
safety of the South."
... It is possible, notwithstanding the obvious ten
dency of Southern opinion and feeling at this
moment, that solicitor Whiting's diagnosis may
turn eat to be correct. But it clearly it not wise
statesmanship to fix a policy upon tbe mere as
sumption of a fact that may prove to be not a
fact, end to the policy chosen defeat its own
object. . ; '
The commutation moner paid by drifted
men will amount, it it supposed, to tome forty or
fifty millions ot Ooujlm inrougaout tbe country.
The Riot at Washington Cxrr Child.
The following we copy from the Vincennes Sun:
Io our last issue, we referred in brief terms to j
the riot which occurred at Washington, our
neighboring town, last Saturday. Since then, we
have been furnished from jeliable sources with
more of the particulars. j -
It appears that Capt Childs of the 65th Indiana
rofunteers, a. detachment of which is row sta
tioned at Henderson, Ky , uoder command of
Col. John Wi Foster, caused band bills to be
posted all through Dariess county, prior to his
rwitto Washington, for the ostensible purpose of
recruiting, He had with him some twenty of bis
meu mounted infantry. : On llie fth, according
ly a large crowd Supposed to be from 1,000 to
1.500 persons assembled at that place. On the
same dy was held there a Democratic township
convention, also largely attended.
At the recruiting meeting, inflammatory har
rangues were made by the chaplain of the regi
ment, besides a Mr. Donaheyjfrom Petersburg
denouncing Democrats as traitor, copperheads,
and the terms In the vocabulary of Republican
tlang. After the crowd came on the street, it
was addressed by Mr J. W. Burton, who was at
the time under the influence of liquor, in a like
strin denouncing private cifisens by name, &c
Under these circumstances, tbe crowd headed by
some of Capt. Childs' men who were also drr.nk
aud naturally excited, soon after Mr. Burton's
speech ma Je a rush on the law office of Mr. Jas.
T. Pierce who is chairman of the Democratic
central committee, and succeeded in forcibly
dragging from Mr. Pierce'sofficeaMr. McKinney,
another Democrat whom they beat and wounded
with their guns and otherwise.
Soon after the soldiers attacked a Mr. Brown,
of this county, and who is himself a discharged
soldier, and lor no valid cause run him into Mr.
Pieice's offices snapped guns and pistols at him.
tore him out of there, and beat and badly wound
ed him. Whether he will recover or not we are
unable to say. . -
In the attack the soldiers wereheaded by Capt.
Childs himself. He was intoxicated at the tiue,
and even went to tbe length of riding on horse
back into the hall lending to Mr. Pierce'e law
office, with his sword drawn.
In a few minutes after the soldiers made an at
tack on Mr. Joseph Brown, a respectable, sober
and inoffensive citizen of Dariess county. He
ra-.i the soldiers, with Capt Childs, pursued hi in
On horse buck for about two hun li-id and fifty
yards, and there overtook Lim overpowered
hint, got him dowu. and finally stabbed him with
a bayonet, causing bis bowels to protrude, and
p;trti-illy serering one of bis intestines. He now

On Friday last, the 14th inst., another enthu
siastic meeting ol the Democracv took place at
Wiggs' Station, Henry Wiggs, Esq , presiding
apon the occasion. In a few appropriate re
marks he introduced the first epetker, J. P.
Solomon, Esq., cf New York. Mr Solomon
eloquently portrayed the rapid growth and pros
perity of-ibe country ander Democratic rwle, ex
hibited Ibe unhappy condition of the people co
der the fanatic ruling of the present dynasty, and
urgently besougnt them to be true to the princi
ples of their forefathers, to take warning of the
tyranny practiced br the Administration and to
defend their rights by the ballot at all haxards.
He was followed by John MulUnr,Esq.,a rising
lawyer of Columbus, Indiana, and Prosecuting '
Attorney of the county.
In forcible language he traced the origin of the
Republican party, exhibiting it in its raried as
pects of Federalism. Know-Nothingism and Ab
olitionism. He showed the resemblance of John
Adams' administration to the present party in
power, and read from the writings of Jefferson
appropriate selections touching tbe liberties of the
people in connection with the alien and sedition
laws of that period. After shoain that the ob
ject of the Abolitionists was to raise the nerro to
a social equality with the white man, and to de
grade them, he closed by reviewing the conscript
act. .
The meeting was closed by a stirring speech
from W L Bane, Esq., of Ohio, now practicing
law at Columbus, Ind. He showed the origin of
the present war, the capability of the Republican
party and tbe tyranny practiced by the present
Administration, showing that the despotism prac
ticed br the military power in Kentucky at the
late election was a sample of tbe treatment that
the people of Indiana might expect at their elec
tions. A large number of ladies graced the occasion
by their presence, and nothing occurred to mar
the harmony of the meeting, erery body depart

The Indianapolis Journal and other Republi

Morcan found "aid and comfort" at tbe hands of
the Democrats (or copperheads and butternut, aa
they call us.) of Indiana during hit sojourn in tbe
Sute. Morgan, however, did not think to.
Captain Cunningham, Morgan's Adjutant Gener

and baa since safely arrived at Richmond. . He
gires the Examiner a long account of the it id,
which the Cincinnati Commercial ' pub

If it was men, not money, the Goremanot
wanted, whr did the law provide for toe or

law teadf, we take it that the Government is in
different as to whether the conscription brings it
men or money. For a City Council, or a Board
