With Freedom's soil beneath our fiet, And Freedom's banner strtamirnj o'er us.'' .,._., ._ IMPORTANT OMUEH. "ol. Averill has been authorized to accept one hundred and thirty-two rc cruito for the Second Minnesota Caval ry thirty-nine for the Independent Cavalry Battalion thirty-one for thea Third Battery, and twenty-six for Brackett's Battalion of Cavalry. Capt. Keith will muster at his office in St. Paul sixty-six rcciuits for the second cavalry, and the recruits for the Independent and Brackctl's Battalions. This will afford an excellent opportuni ty fir many who wish to enter the or ganizations stationed in the State, to enlist, thus avoiding the draft and drawing the large bounties given vol unteers. No time is to be list. Col. Averill has also received an or der by which drafted men who have become deserters by failing to report, will be credited on the quota of towns if sent to the Provost Marshal's office Some ot the towns in this County can that themselves in no better way than by bringing forward their skulkers EXEMPTION DIFFICULTIES. The muttcrings of complaint from different localities where the Board of Enrollment met in the First District, charging fraud and extortion, have culminated in the arrest, by Col Aver ill, of Capt. See, Provost Marshal, and Dr. Mayo, Examining Surgeon, and al so a number of physicians and attor neys. The evidence elicited on trial i'afls to implicate Capt. See, but he is blamed for allowing others to practice extortion. Dr. Mayo admit?, that he made private examinations after regu lar ho rs, charging therefor a fee of live dollars. This he claims he had a right to dp. Col. Averill thinks other wise, and has ordered him to report at llochcster under arrest, and the whole matter has been referred to Washing ton. In consequence of this state of affairs orders liavc been issutd by Col. Aver ill for a re-examination of the exempts in a number of the towns, and if any fail to appear their exemptions will be annulled. This virtually docs away with the previous examination 'of the Board. Col. Averill is determined that the difficulties shall be rightfully settled. It is no small credit to the Board of this District, under Capt. Keith, that the whole matter of examinations and exemptions has been satisfactorily and straightforwardly conducted. Not a sin gle whisper of comtiliint has been made, or the slightest charge against Capt. Keith or the Examining Sur geons. There have, of course, been many who thought they should obtain exemption papers, but they doubtless returned home well satisfied with the Surgeon's assurance that they were bet ter men than they thought they were. MISKK90TA TROOPS COIKG TO N E W ORLKAXS. Governor Miller received a dispatch on the 9th, says the Press, from Lieu tenant Gorman stating that his (theinsurance. Tenth Minnesota) liegiment was en route- for New Orleans The telegram was dated at Paducah, Kentucky, Feb ruary 8th. Col. Marshall also received a dispatch yesterday from Lieut. Col. Bradley of the Seventh Minnesota, dated at Cairo the Pth. Though the telegram made no mention of the fact, the probability is that the Seventh is bound for the same port, and possibly other Minne sota troops which were at Eastport, may accompany the Tenth.

Ig natius Donnelly, of Minnesota delivered a spee.h in Congress on the Indian policy of the Govcrnmetit. The New York Ih-rnlrf gives the following sy nopsis "Mr. Donnelly charged that the deg radation of the Indians on the. frontier wa^ the result of this policy. He urg ed that ihe government should abandon its system of treaties with the Indians, and legislate tor them. It should give no money annuities, but should labor to make the Indians farmers, and place •lam under the military authorities, should enforce order and protect the industrious from the disorderly.— He showed that the total appropriations for Indians since 1798 amounted to iioarly ninety millions of dollar, equal to thirteen thousand dollars lor each chief of the annuity Indians. He pro posed a system of checks to prevent frauds by the agents. He argued that the Indians were capable of civilization and referred to the former high civili zation of Pennsylvania and Mcx'co as proot of this. He urged that the red race could not rise above barbarism under such system, and that justice to the Indians was necessary to the safety of our frontiers." -a— THE DRAFT. Cap*. Keith has made a statement of the excesses, in years, of the sub-regiment. districts in the Second District. Our readers will be specially interested in the following: STEARNS COUNTY. Fair Haven. 26, Maine Prairie, 13, Sauk Centre, 17, Saint Cloud, 3?, Te cumseh and Le Sauk, 2—90. BENTON COUNTY. Langola 19, Sauk Rapids 8, Saint George 4, Watab 7—38. MOUUlMiN COUNTY. Belleviow 9. Little Falls 5—14. Divide the excess of years by three, and the result will be the number ot three-years' men which can be deduct ed from the quota of the town when it is made known. THE URBAT PENNSYLVANIA CEN TRAL R. R. We clip the following from the St. Paul Pioneer It is a fact cot generally understood in the Northwest, but none the less a fact, that the Pennsylvania route is sixty-one miles shorter than all others to New York, and is the only mute with but one change of cars from Chi cago to that city (via Allentown) or to Philadelphia and Baltimore. To theWilson latter place it is forty-three miles short er than by way of Allianee and the Bal timore and Ohio Railroad, and seventy five miles shorter than by way of Tole do and the Baltimore and Ohio Itai' road. This is the only route by which passengers leaving the principal Kail road Towns on the Mississippi River Saturday morning, can leave Chicago the same evening (at 5:30 1». M.) and run through without delay, arriving in New York 27 hours in advance of all rival lines. Besides the saving in time via this route, it is considered the safest in the Union, having been incomparably the freest from accidents. The grandeur ot the mountain scenery is spoken of in the highest terms by all who have ev er passed over the road. Persons trav eling for business or pleasure will con sult their own interest by choosing the Pennsylvania Central. The time table and general informa tion concerning this line will be found on our fourth page. I E A ST. ANTHONY.

ALL INSTRUMENTS WARRANTED FOR FIVE YEARS. We confidently believe that the LA PE TITE ORGAN, because of iu artistic ex cellence and adaptedness to the practical warns of the public, is destined to be more widely used, both in private houses and in churches and halls, than any other large musical instrument. Without detracting from the merits of the Piano-Forte, which stands confessedly in the highest place as the interpr ter of certain classes of music, superiority may be claimed for the LA PE TITE ORGAN in that to some extent it unites the powers of the Piano with those of the Church Organ, while its capacity for thefitexpression of sacred and home music, to which Americans are chiefly at tached, is entirely superior to that of the Piano Forte. Add to this the fact that it can be furnished AT MUCH LESS COST. The Instruments manufactured at this establishment combine all the recent im provements, and are WARRANTED PERFECT In every respect and should ary repairs be necessary before the expiration of TIYK YKABS from tho date of sule, Mr. WILDER holds himself ready and willing to make the same free of charge, provided the injury is not caused by accident or design.
