MEKTlNG OF THE WA8HIHOTOH EXEMPTION
A-fe ? ?a ? h>n.?This association,better known
as the Bacon Club, met on Saturday evening
In tbe court room. City Hall, agreeable to a
call, Mr. Canfleld, Vice President, in tbe chair,
and R. S. Davis secretary.
Tbe Chair stated that the object of the meet
ing, ae he understood it, was for the purpose
of taking action to relieve those already drafted
in the First Ward and those wbo may here
after be drafted.
Mr. D. C. Pearce, to meet the case, offered a
preamble setting fortn that as the members of
the club who are dratted are required to report
Tor duty tnrnish subtitules before tbe draft is
concluded, ami before the exact amount due
each drafted man can be ascertained, accom
panied by a resolution, instructing the officers
to pay not exceeding $5(>? to each man drafted
as soon as be is accepted, and after the close
of the tirait the balance of the money to be paid
him. r
Mr. B. F. M. Hurley suggested the adoption
of a reeelution directing the issuing of war
rants for such sum of money for tbe purpose of
procuring substitutes for those dratted or to be
drafted not to exceed-hundred dollars, and
that in view of another draft in the District no
money shall be divided pro rata among tbe
members dratted unless the quota shall be
filled.
Mr. ?. Elliot raised a point of order that the
constitution provided for the distribution of
the tonda in a manner different from that con
templated in the resolutions, (the equal distri
bution among all those drafted.)
A question was asked now many had been
?drafted in the Fust Ward, when the Chair sta
ted that be understood that out of over lift ? ?a
that ward four nad been drafted, and from
what be bad learned there was but little doubt
but another drat: would be made in that
ward.
A eentleman here anneunced that he waa one
of the drafted ones, and he proceeded to give
his experience in trying to put iu a substitute.
He had tried to get in three but they were re
jected, and he believed it almost impossible to
get cue in without the aid of a substitute bro
iler.
A lengthy dehatp ensued between Messrs.
Hurley, Lyles, Elliot, Holzlander, Davis, and
others, win. h terminated in the adoption of a
motion offered by Mr. Elliott, to appoint a com
mittee of five to consider and reper? a plan
whereby tbe object of tbe meeting could be at
tained, and Hes?rs. K. Elliott, L. Holzlander,
?. Lyles, B. F. M Hurley, and J. W. W. Mc
Will, were appointed and immediately retired,
the meeting taking a recess meau while.
In a short time the committee returned, and
Mr. Elliot made a majority report, signed by
Messrs. Holzlauder, Mdfill, aud himself, pro
viding for instructing tbe Hoard of Directors
to pay the members wbo maybe dratted, not
exceeding ten in each ward, s*n? ?? to assist them
In proenring substitutes.
Mr. Hurley presented a minority report signed
by Mr. Lyles aud himself, providing for tbe
payment of *3i?ti to each man drafted, unless
he'ia exempted.
A spirited uebate ensued on these reports,
and the majority report was, on motion of Mr.
E. C. Ecklotf. amended r?y striking out the
limitation of tbe number to' be benefit.ted to 10
to each ward; adopted.
Mr. Ellott then raised a point of order, that
the resoiution was unconstitutional, and
another debate, partaking somewhat of a per
sonal character, took place, which was,
however, cut abort by Mr. Lylea raising
another point, that Mr. Elliott's point of order
should not be discussed all night, and the
President. (Mr. Lloyd) be having come, ruled
Mr. Elliott's point to have not been well taken.
Mr. Elliott appealed from thia decision and,
the question being taken, the Chair was sus
tained, and the majority report, a? amended,
was adopted
Mr. Elliott offered a resolution giving the
privile** to any member, so wishin?, to with
draw his subscription, which was laid on the
table, and the meeting adjourned.
G? RTH Ward Draft Mestino.?The
Citizen? of tbe Fourth Ward held an adjourned
mee leg to take measures in relation to tbe
draft, on Saturday afternoon?Mr. Lloyd pre
aidir>g, and J. C. Clayton acting as secretary.
The committee to revise tbe enrollment, re
ported that they had discovered thus far that
tbe ward should receive a credit of one
hundred and seven men?those who are en
rolled aLd were in tbe service or furnished
substitutes.
Lieut John Y. Donn, of the let District regi
mi nt, made h statement in regard to Adjutant
Young, of his regiment, on whom a vote of
censure had been passed growing out of put
tin* a roan in tbe service. Lieut. D explained
that tbe man wno it had been charged through
Adiutant Young, had been wrongfully credited
to Georgetown, thereby the Fourth Ward be
ing cheated out of the man, had been recruited
to tbe credit of Georgetown before the Fourth
Ward committee approached him.
Mr. Cbauncey made tbe amende honorable
as tar as he was concerned, stating that the
committee bad been deceived by the man who
had tbe recruit in charge, and expressed the
belief that Lieut. Young was innocent of the
charge made.
Lieut. Donn stated that he hrd three recruits
winch would be put in to the credit of the
ward on Monday.
Tbe committee on recruiting reported that
they bad put in five recruits during the dsy.
Mr Groasmayer offered a aeries of resolutions
giving permission to all who be 3 subscribed to
the flou fund to withdraw tbea subscriptions
and form a club to procure substitutes to ex?
empt all tbe members of tbe club, the members
obligating themselves to subscribe auch addi
tional sum as is necessary to accomplish the
object- Laid on tbe table.
Mr. T. B. Perricks offrred a resolution pro
viding that all mone.t raised for the recruiting
fund remaining on hand after the draft shall
be divided equally among those drafted and
accepted.
Mr. I'termehle made a few remarks deprica
tlng anything which looked like the forming of
an exemption club save for the purpose of put
tin* la recruits. He believed that if the money
paid into exemption funde had been paid into
a recruiting fund the quota of the city would
have been filled long eince.
Mr. Frazier stated that the police of the
Fourth ward bad over $?400 in hand which they
would turn ever on Monday.
Mr. Perrick's motion was then adopted and
the meeting adjourned to Tuesday evening.

A m.etijg of this association was held Satur
day uigbt at 1. lauti Hall, Mr ?.S Noyes pres
ident and Mr. W. j. fituna*b secretary.
A communication was receited from Wesley
Zion Chimb Association o? colored p. >ple,
stating that since their previous report taey
bad collected an additional sum ot E32 ?5 in
cash and ?155 on guaranty fund.
JMr. John ? Semines reported the progress
made in recruiting for tbe qnota of the \v ird
He complained of considerable sharp pr -,'tice
Which bad been indulged in to the detriment
ot tbe Seventh Ward, aud of Ute District, but
he intended investigating tbe mutter next week.
Mr. F. A. Boswell reported, as one ot th*
commute attending the convention of wards
that Georgetown and tbe Third and Sixth
?? arde were not represented there. They hid
agreed on B?0O as the bounty to be given sub
stitutes and recruits. He thought tbe Fourth,
Fifth, and Six h Wad? hai no mene?, ami
though the Seventh Ward had not overmuch,
it would do better by acting independently
Mr F. A. Bartle, another of the committee,
said he would like to have action tsken on the
matter He thought the Second, Foiir'h and
Fifth Wards hud bnt little monev, they ki-_
the Seventh Watd had money; and it see n-l
as though it was sa effort to b?nd other w rds
??.????...? using tbe advantages the possession of
money gave them. Georgetown and the ? ntrd
Ward were not bound by tbeaet on ot the com
mittee, and could bv offering large bounties,
take all tbe recruits. He did not like tbe ac
tion of tbe committee in keeping the ma ter
from tbe public. Tbe price determined on jvas
?too, and it ought to have been reported io 'he
morning papers, that the city at large could
know It, siri act accordinly.
Mr W. S Y atti an, of the committee, said be
had voted tor the ?2?? limit in tbe convention,
but now regretted it, as lie was sau?aeU lu.?
tbe arrangement would not work well.
Tbe Chairman said tbe Georgetown Councils
had appropriated *20,<KK) for bounties, an 1 the
*igeuts of that city, he learned, were busy in
Alexandria, outbidding competition in tbe way
of getting recruits. It was tolly for the ward
to be bound by tbe action of the convention,
from tbe fact that tbe convention was a nullity
in itself, as tbe Third Ward and Georgetown
were not represented, and the Sixth Ward also
sent no delegate, and would not probably feel
bound by the action of the gentleman from that
ward who volunteered to represent her on the
occasion. The arrangement could have been
of any practical effect only in case every ward,
and the city of Georgetown also, had com? into
it; and by the failure of any to co-operate the
whole thing fell through
Mr Semmes said he thought it best to man
age tteir own affairs in their own way. If he
could get a recruit tor g-5<?, be did so; anil if be
bad to pay 3250, be would do it, rather than
lose him. He would never lose a man for the
sake of F5<) or 81 DO.
Mr J. I. El vans said Mr. Semmes bad been
authorized to use bis own discretion, and
would they stultify themselves by binding
him to a certain sum ! No; get all the recruits
possible, by giving just such bounties as were
necessary. He felt the ward was not bound
by the action of the committee, and would
leave the matter, as heretofore, to the discre
tion of the Treasurer. He therefore moved
that the association express its non-co-icur
rence in the action of the convention, aud that
the cemmittee be discharged. Carried.
Mr. Anderson would like to know how
many were yet required to till the quota ot the
ward.
Mr. Semmes said he had put in seventeen re
cruits during the week If the printed report
was correct, there remained to be tilled 111; it
the written report handed to him by Captain
Putnam was correct, they lacked loi. He ex
pected to get a further credit of fourteen on
Monday.
Mr. W. J. Murtagh, secretary, said he had
the enrollment lists ready to be place 1 in the
hands of tbe collectors, and that in or 1er that
every person enrolled should be promptly vis
ited, it was necessary that the ? urn be of col
lectors should be enlarged.
Tbe following additional collectors were ap
pointed:?A. W. Ward, llaniel McGiven, John
I.andvoight, E. Tasten. Wm. T. Hall. G. H
Larcombe, John Ellis. Mr. Dunn, Chas. Bishop,
Mr. Saeur, Sinclair Fletcher, John Riddle, T.
H. Walker, John Soliere, Jacob Bean, T. M.
Harvey, and Jas. Adams.
The meeting then adjourned until Monday
evening, at half-past seven.

Fibs.?Yesterday afternoon a barn on Cor
coran's farm, near Harewood Hospital, took
Are and was consumed. The dry combustible
material of which it was constructed burned
very rapidly, and resisted the efforts of the sol
diers and citizens toexMnguish it before the ar
rival of tbe firemen. Tbe steam engine Rucker
and the Hook and Ladder of the 3d division of
the Are department, were soon on the spot, and
rendered efficient service in saving the oth*r
property in that vicinity. The foreman ot tbe
3d division was informed that a company of
soldiers were quartered in tbe barn, and that
several were missing, but this report has not
been confirmed.
