day. It wits n in dragging, and was not to

motives. There were, also, some other rea
oiiei fur the abatement of enthasiasm The
I ople lud n: '.e- i utiSed with the man-aTiue.-it
of the war. We had been trying
t j ut duwn t' i rebellion with one band

viih the otber, and bad turned the cold
iboalder to the only loyal men of the Sooth.
Mr. Kolfe here called the speaker to order,
fcyin that he did not wish to remain and
hear the administration stigmatraed.
Mr. Rjberts eyt. tinned, eaym that he
sUutnintd tbe ad nrinitt ration. Tbe I'reai
dant u&i ju?t man. whose heart, he doubted
not.throbhcd m unison with his, rather than
with the gentleman who had interrupted

icg up to ihe work.lle would not be a croik

i.xd. and u.ithiii is rsioed by smoothing
over a lud state of thing'. He farther nr.
g led that t adopt tbe resolution and the
pjio it recommends would be no impeach
ment of the honor of tbe state ; but that it
would on the other hand be an honor to the
State to initiate tbe system, at tbe instance
and with the full oonsent of the people.
Henkt R. Campbell, Eq.. opposed Mr.
Uolfes amendment. The system of drafting
w that ol every civilized war power. Vol
unteering haJ already been maintained in
this wjr t.. au extent never known before.
It was tiu.0 it was succeeded by a more reli.
able and eqjal system. It wonld be as rea
onaUe to object to assessments on our proji
eriy for the support ot Government, and to
pruru.- to raise uur taies by voluntary sub
"cr.ption, as to object to drafting and reJy
n vjluntteting for a continuous supply of
men. lie wmt for a draft as consistent with
the highest patriotism of the people, and as
the best plan, because it is the speediest
will fumi-h a better class of men, and will
draw ibem from all parts of tbe State in tbe

wr .f 1S1C, when the troops were mainly

- Inch ho liyed two-thirds of the able bodied
i n, h.mself included, were drafted, and
iniit je i cheerfully at the order of the Gov-
i -HHI-..1. The draft would call out men
' ' 11 i ro'esiuns and all suitable ages, and a

Mr Henry Rolfe taid he had tuppotedit

ijiresed. He bad nothing to say against
th; plan of drafting. It was the resort of a

The Debate in tbe British Parliament on
the 10th alt., on Mr. Lindsay's motion con
cerning American affairs, was an important
one. W e can only gite a few points of it. Mr.
Lindsay's reeolu'.ion was as folloas :
That in tha omaioa of thii itouaa. the atauu
which have seceded Iron the Union of theiepabiie
of the Unite t States, have so long maintained
ihemeelvcs under a separate and cstabbsbtd gov
ernment, and hava given sack proofs of their de
termination aad ability to rapport their iiidepend-
eoce, that the propria' y of ottering mediation with
tbe iew of tormiaating hostilities between the
contending parties Is worthy cf tbe serious and
immediate attention ot Bsc majesty s government.
Hi' reaeons lot it were, that the War must
end in a separation, and a regard for ruffer
ing humanity sad English interests made it
desirable to end it as soon as possible. Ha
considered te cause of the secession move
ment to be severe and UDjnst taxation Jwiog
to tbe selfish policy of the Xjrth. Re-union
be cofteidered hopeless, and if so it behoved
England to offer her mediation, and to ask
tbe northern states to consider how much
distress the war was causing in Engl ind.
Others supported tbe resoluti jn.
Liord I'aliuerston spoke against it "trootjly.
earnestly advising that the iustinn should
be left in tbe hands of the gov rnuient. He
did not deny tho right of th j; jvernment to
acknowledge tbe tndepcndeai.i; cl Lc :.uth-
ern confederacy if they saw fit, and were satin-
fied that that iodep ndence was firm and es
tablishcd. This in bis view hi far from
being the case. AcknuHlotlgemciit itithout
active interference would o no good. A to
the sufferings and privation i.irruing io the
English jicoplc from the ar, no on.- cotiii
ba insensible to them , hut an interference
would only make the matter worse. The
war was one ol great propurti w. Ti.t thirty
years war in Genaany was hut a joke tj it.
As to its condition it had txen to contrary to
experience that he would be a b. 1 1 ru n who
would venture to prophecy what the 6ta'.e ol
affairs would be a month bene. He would
not di.ute the question of right between the j
parties ; the government would be happy to '
aid in bringing such a desolating and afflict ,

some ol whom arc received in charge little bet

The ladies' Relief Association ol this

special notice will be given. At their request
we draw the attention of tbe ladies of tkt
vicinity to thj matter, that they may, in the

among their household stores, each articles
of the alove description as they are willing
to contribute to this important and patriotic
object, at that time.
To some it may be more i-jovenknt ta
make contributijns in money, and there is
great need of money to purchase, fur tbe
use of the fl mting and other hospitals, neces-
sarios of various kinds which cannot be cnu
incrated, but which are 11 oat important for
the comfort and recovery of tbe sick aad
wounded. Though Government aims to do
all tbat it possibly can, to meet the wants of
the soldiers, every one knows that, to a great
extent its aid must bs given under general
rule and regulations, which cannot m- c all
I' culiar wants as they arise. The supply of
this.' must devolve upon the charitable, or
ganizations, tbe amistaats, physicians and

The following article from the New York
World contains a great deal of good sense,
sharply spoken .
Many men dread a r. sort ts drafting as a dire- .
fal evil. They noald almost rather let the old
Sag go by tbe board than save it so. Ths men ,
who talk thus are of two aorta Ike weak-keadca I

shirk danger. We base ssmcthia to my ts both ,
You people who have eaaght the notioa that

why do you not honestly ask yourselves what dis
tinction there eia be between compulsory eon
asjriaAJoa and compulsory taxation? How Is a
zoverauent more discredited ia obliging yea to
ahoulder your muaket in defease, taaa ia oUigiag
you to snrrendir your dollars for the tarn end .'
Wby not apply the volunteer principle to the
raising of money as well aa to the
raising of soldiers ? Unquestionably a great deal
of cash might be so raised. There sre multitudes of
srahle-heartcl patriots who would eoetribwts all
ia their power to carry on this war. Millions
might be so realised. Hut auall government
therefore barn np tbe lax bill aad trust to the
subscription paper Of oourse yon say, No 1 The
go'cxameat which would thus forego iu aataorily

money.farniabers, you would despise; and yet
yoa thiak it aanaaoaablc aad diacredi tabic taat
ths same government, ia aic same strails, ahoald
act forego iu aarJaortly to draft, and trusts its ex
istence to ths disposition of Tom, Hick, aad Harry
to volnateex as masket-bearera. Ho yoa say that
the Utter onmpauion is not necessary: ilnat
prophet informed you ' Where do yi u get your
assoraaes that the three hundred thoiioaad men
called for will be seasonably forthcoming, oa the
voluntary principle ? We say raj'-iaualjr forth
coming. Not six months hence, nor three months
bonce, but in time to confront the armed boats
which Confederate conscription has raised, aad,
for aught yst kaown.fs ah. ut t bar! against us.
Ihe man oul"ids of Kichmond does not live who
ana sjweraatec that a hostile army may aot be

an army not to lie resisted b- iny force we shall
thoa hava at command. ' j believed that

orn scant will loss credit by imposing a draft is
aa absurdity. Each aa act would have just the
contrary effect. Ir would impress the wvr 1 1 with
a new lease of rsssasvcaa strength. It wouel shew

The absence of officers and priratcs from their
duty, under various pretexts, while receiving pay,
at great expense and burthen to tuo Government,
miiss it necessary that efficient measures be taken
to enforee their return to duty, or that their plac
es be supplied by those who wilt not take pay
while rendering co service. This evil mortnver,
tends greatly to dissourags the patriotic impulse
of those who would contribute t3 support the
families of faithful soldiers.
lt is therefore ordered by the rrasideLt :
ftril That on Monday, the 11th day of Augan,
all leaves of absence and furloughs by whomso
ever given, nele s by the War lcpartment, arc
rsroked and absolutely annulled, and all o racers ca
pabls of service iro required forthwith to join thei?
regiments under a penally ot dismissal frcm tbe
service tr such penalty as a Oeutt Martial may
award, unless tbe absence bs coasloned by law
ful cause.
.Vecssif The only excuse allowed for tha ab
sence of officers or privates from duly after the
11th day of August, are first, the order or leave
cf the War Department; sees&J, disabilities from
wounds received in service; third, disability from
disease that renders the party unf t for military
daty but any ofScer or private whose health per
mits him ti visit watering places or places of
amusement, or to make social visits, cr walk about
the town will be considered tit for military duty,
and as evading his duty by absence from his com
mand or the ranks.
TUrd 0a Monday, the lath day 01 Aage.it, at
10 o'clock A. il., each regiment and corps shall be
mustered. The absentees will be marked, three
lists of the same made out, and within 18 hours
of the mutter, one copy shall be sent to the Ad
jutant General of the Army and oae to the Com
mander cf tbe corps. The third Is to be retained,
and all oSeers and privates, fit for duty, absent at
that time will be regarded aa absent without cause.
Their pay will be stopped and they will be dis
missed from the service or treated as deserters, un
less restcred ; and no c facer shall be restored to
his rank, unless by the judgment of a Court ef
Inquiry, to lo approved by the President. He
shall establish his abeeece was without cause.
'ourrA Commanders of Corps, Divisions, Bri
gades, Kegiments and Detached Posts are strictly
enjoined to enferce the muster and return cf afore
said Any officer filling la his duty herein will

for despondency no time tor distrust. He
was ili confident as ever, and had no douht
of oar final and complete success. Bat there

Our bcautilul temple of Liberty, stud Mr.
Foot, which was reared by tbe patriotic la
bors ol uur iorelathers, is on fire. The in
cendiary has rushed into its inner sanctuary
and profaned its sacred altars. More than
seven hundred millions of dollars huve al
ready been expended, more than one hun
dred thousand loyal lives have betn sacrificed.
There are millious, ot men standing ready,
willing and acxious to coma to our aid and
assist in the suppression ui toe raging conlli
gration and sive the temple. Shall we refuse
and sputn this proffered aid ? Wa cught
long ago to have aeoepted it. This has come
to be tbe sentiment ol loyal men of all polit
ical parties in the loyal States, and 01 the
majority of loyal men m tbe rebellroas States.
This ia the belief ol Siena tor Wright, t Doug
las Democrat, and of Senator Rice, a former
Breckinridge Democrat, bs openly declared
by them upon the floor of tbe Senate. The
rebels themselves make use ot tbctr staves
against the Government in large numbers,
and we should bars no hesitancy in making
use of Ibem ourselves). Better tbey should
be tor us than against us. Tiilk not to aa,
said Mr. Foot, ot ths constitutional rights of
traitors. They have no constitutional rights
except to be hone by the neck until thev are
deed : and the sooner tkeT rears the fall fro. '
mon ot mat rignt, tno better it will he for
the country and tasnkiad. '
