The Call for Troop,
Wc publii-h to-day the proclamation ol
Governor Smith, together with the orders,
in detail, from the Adjt. General's office,
speciryins the numlr of men to be raised in
each town and giving the needed instructions.
The record of Vermont is a most honorable
one so far.From the day of her birth as a State,
nay more, from the day when her valiant
sons under Allen, Warner and Stark, were
only known as " men from the New Hamp
shire Grants," as " Green Mountain Boys,
the Verinontcrs have been relied ujion in the
cauK; of their country to be as sure as the
foundations of her own everlasting hills. No
such word as flinch or fail has ever been
coupled with their names. And the day for
pucli word, we trutt, will never come.
The inducements fur active effort to supply
nur mmr. wrrc ncve so ffrcat as now. The
men must be had, to ghe the final blow to
the rebellion, still detjierate and dangerous,
though staggering to its fall. The people
hae just decided afresh that the war shall
lielought through to full victory. If the
troops are not forthcoming as volunteers,
they will be taken by dralt. And the draft,
be it remembered, will call not only for all
dtEiitncies under the last call but also for
the deficiency under the former draft.
Fifty-nine volunteers will satisfy the last
call for the town of Burlington, but if failing
to raise them the draft is ordered, it will call
for one hundred and tcenty nine. Three
hundred anduvrtecn men, is the quota of
Chittenden County, under the last call ; but
if not raised by the fifth of January, the
draft will take jSre hundred and thirty eight.
The statement of the care is enough. The
men can and must be raised as volunteers,
and the draft postponed forever. The time
is short for volunteering. Let us be at work,
The results of Tuesday's elections are as fol
lows: Hew York gives the Union ticket 30,000
majority, with a. Union gain in New York
City alone, of 12,000.
Masscuhsctts reelects Gov.Andrcw by 40,000
majority. State county and town tickets, eve.
rything, is overwhelmingly Republican.
Wisconsin gives a Union majority of 15,
000 on the home vote alone.
The Union gains are heavy in Missouri,
Kansas, Michigan, New Jersey and Illinois,
in which last only county officers were elect
ed. Push on tho War ! No compromise with
traitors in arms ! The nation shall not die !
Such is the voice of the people in the Fall
Henry Wnrd lleccher in Enzlnnd.
On the first arrival of Kev. Henry Ward
Beecher in England, he was urged toaddrefs
the people on affairs in this country. He
refused but intimated that if he should return-to
England from his continental excur
sion he might then do so. On Me return a
few weeks ago the request was renewed with
urgency; and he has spoken in Glasgow,
Manchester, Liverpool and Iindon, to great
assemblies and with powerful effect. In the
first two of these places, though there w ere
present some who w ere resolutely captious
and disposed to interfere with his speaking un
interruptedly, the sentiment of the great mass
of those assembled was strongly in his favor.
He evidently reached the heart of the people,
and their gratification was shown with an
enthusiasm which could not be mistaken..
At Liverpool the case was considerably
different. This city was in former times and
for a long period the great centre of the
slave trade of the world ; and probably no
city in Europe at this day contains in its
population so large a proportion whose sym
pathies are with clave traders and slave
owners generally, and with those in particu
lar who in this country are in rebellion and
striving to break up the United States for
the sake of slavery. Great efforts had been
made by incendiary placards about the city
to excite the people against Mr. Beecher ;
and from the beginning to the end of his ad
dress the interruptions were so incessant and
turbulent as to make it almost imjiossible for
him to speak two sentences in succession.
Very few men in such circumstances could
have spoken at all. Though the majority
were evidently disposed to listen in an hon
orable manner, the rowdy minority was too
numerous to be kept under any control.
Even Liverpool papers not at all favorable to
the cause of the Union condemn the unman
ly and disgraceful conduct of Mr. Beccher's
assailants. With admirable self possession
and good temper, however, Mr. Beecker kept
bis place and said his say in spite of all, and
bis speech is printed at length in several
widely circulated English journals. The ef
fect of the whole affair cannot but be favor
able to our cause abroad.
Good Advice. Count Gasparin, the noble
Frenchman, who of all foreigner! has best
understood oar great contest, in a recent pri
vate letter, gives the following advice t " Al
ready the hour of your success seems
to have come. How do I rejoice over it !
But just here it is that you will need to re
double your wisdom. Close in around Mr.
Lincoln. Make sure the abolition of slave
ry. Practice equality toward men of color.
Avoid foreign quarrels. Avoid oppression
intheSouth. Your glory should consist in '

In the nt battle fought at Frcdericksburgt,

was distinguished for its gallantry,
The bravery and coolness with which the brig

Bank's Ford, on the fourth cf May, haie never
been excelled by any troops. They stormed aud
carried the heights of Fredericksburgh, on the
Sd of May, in the face of a terrific fire; and when
on the 4th they protected the rear of the Sixth
Corps and enabled it to cross the Rappahannock
in safety, the masses of the enemy, greatly out-T,,onl.nn.-
them, were persistently hurled
against them in vain. They were attacked by
and repulsed three rebel brigades, of four regi-

On the 5th of June the brigade again crossed
the Rappahannock, at Fredericksburgh, and as

most gallantly and taking many prisoners. 1 j

the brigade, anu of Lieut. Lou iwis, nno com

near Funkstown, Maryland, the brigade again
met the enemy, in superior force, and gallantly
repulsed them, holding a sxinnisn line oi some
three miles in extent, without supports within
assisting distance, against repeated attacks of
nrni linea of rebel infantry. . .
The brigade moved with the Army of the Po
tomac into Virginia, in pursuit cf the enemy,
and were then detached and sent to the City of
New York, to aid, if necessary, in enforcing
obedience to the laws of the United States. The
brigade is now with the Army of the Potomac,
near Culpepper. Va.
Too much honor cannot be awarded by the
Teople of Vermont to the officers and men of this
gallant brigade. They arc the men who respond
ed among the earliest to the call of the nation for
assistance in suppressing the rebellion and re
storing and preserving the National existence.
They have fought gallantly in every battle, in
which the Army of the Potomac has been engag
ed, since the war commenced. Distinguished
alike for bravery and discipline, tney nave ac
quired for themselves an imperishable record in
history, and have won for the troops of the Stat
in the field a reputation for untlinching courage
and dashing bravery, which is only equalled by
the distinction which the people of theStatehave
earned for persistent loyalty to the Union, which
is their proudest boast. .
The Seventh Regiment has been stationed
at Pensacola and in the vicinity, a portion of
the companies garrisoning tort rickens, dur
ing the year. There has been no change in the
Field Officers. The regiment at the close of the
last vear. was euSerine severely from exposure
during the unsuccessful attack upon Vicksburg
and afterwards in camp. i wo nunureu ana
eighty-five officers and men died previous to
December 1, 1862. Since their rtaioval to a
more healthy location the regiment has greatly
imnroved in condition, and the men are now
more generally healthy than those of any other
regiment from this State in the service.
The unjust aspersions, which were sought to
be cast upon the regiment by the General then
commanding in the Department of the Gulf,
were removed by the result of the Court of In
quiry, which was demanded and obtained by the
Colonel of the Regiment, and their colors which
hail been taken from them, were restored. It is
now known, that the officers and men, who were
on duty, fought as bravely at the battleof Baton
Rouge aa any troops who were engaged in that

Brashear City, constituted a part ot the force,
which moved under the command of Maj. Gen.
Banks, from that place to Alexandria, uin the
Red River, and thence to Port Hudson, was a
part of the besieging force at that place until its
surrender, was moved from thence to Thibo
deaux. La., and now constitutes a part of the
force which has been detached for service in
Texas. At the date of their last report, they
were at Brashear City, La.
In the expedition from Brashear City to Alex
andria, and during the siege of Port Hudson,
the regiment behaved most gallantly, and won
for itself the reputation, which has distinguished
Vermont troops, whenever brought into action.
They constituted a pirt of the assaulting force
on the 27th of May. and again on the 14th of
June, and were distinguished for their icfiinch
ing bravery. ...
The Ninth Reoiment, which had been cap
tured at Harper's Ferry, in September, 1662,
was exchanged, January 10, lc63, and was re
tained at Chicago, guarding a camp of rebel
prisoners, until the first of April. The regiment
waa then removed to Fortress Monroe, from
thence to Suffolk, Va., from thence to West
Point, Va., and i now stationed at Yorktown,
Va. This regiment, although not in any en
gagement during the year, has sunered severely
in numbers, as the result of their long detention
as prisoners of war. The men became much
disheartened, many deserted, and many enlisted
in the regular army, under the orders then in
force, allowing the regular army to be recnr'ed
from the Volunteer regiments. Since their
transfer to Virginia, they have been employed
in more active service, and are now in very fair
condition, though suffering much from sickness,
incident to their present location. They have
not yet had a fair opportunity to distinguish
themselves, except for patient endurance.
The Tenth Regiment has been stationed, dur
ing the most of the year, near Poolesnlle, Ma
ryland, performing picket duty on the Upper
Potomac, brigaded with the 3"th Massachusetts,
the 14th New Hampshire and the 23d Maine.
During the invasion of Maryland and Penn
sylvania by the rebel forces, this regiment was
attached to the Third Army Corps, and is now
serving, in that Corps, with the Army of the
The Eleventh Regiment was changed, by
special order of the War Department, December
10, 18C2, to Heavy Artillery, and has been sta
tioned, during the year, at Washington, D. C,
occupying Forts Slocum, Totten and Stevens.
The regiment has had no active service, but has
performed much heavy labor in constructing
The First Regiment or Cavalet have per
formed active and laborious service in the field
during the year, have participated in many en
gagements, and have distinguished themselves
greatly for their dashing bravery. At times,
their service has been very severe. During the
early part of the year they were engaged in pic
ket duty in front of Washington, having detach
ments at Fort Scott, Drainsrille, Annandale,
Lewinsville and Vienna, and subsequently at
Freedom Hill, Warrenton, and Btistow Station.
On the First of April they were engaged in a
disastrous skirmish, near Drainsville, with Mos

Legislative Dibectorv and Mamal.
We are indebted to Henry Clark, Esq., Se
cretary of the Senate, for a copy of the Di
rectory and Kules of the Senate and House
of Representatives for the present session
also a copy of the Manual of the Legislature
of Vermont for 163. The former is tlie re
gular annual printed by older of the Legis
lature, containing the list of the scleral state
officers, and the members of the two legisla
tive bodies, and their several officers their
residences while in Montpelier, &e., the lists
of the several standing Committees, the rules
of Senate and House, 4c.
The Manual published at the prime ex
pense of some one, contains lists of toe con
gressional delegation of the State, its judicial
ous executive officers and the State Senators
and Representatives, with the date of birth
and mention of the place of the nativity for
each one. In addition to this there is given
the occupation and religious connection of
each one. Wc doubt the wisdom of making
cither of those last statements. The occupa
tion of the members in many eases, probably
in a majority of them, is a mixed one, and
therefore the statement must be more or les
inaccurate. The tendency of such a list i
also to excite jealousie" and promote clan
nish feelings among the members, which are
always to be avoided. The same objection,
and with greater force in our view, lie
again-t the designation of the religions con
nection of the members. Wo know of no
good wbi a are oome from such a classifica
tion, and as a mere matter of curiosity it is
as much out of place as a descrijition of their
personal appearance severally would Ii.
A Somewhat Pointed Ketlv. A copper
head Ohio captain by the name of Stout
recently got a reply from one of his former
company, whom he had attempted to elect
ioneer for Vallandigham, of which the fol
lowing is an extract :
Headquarters 102d O. V. I.
Cowan Station, Tenn., Oct. 1st J
Dear Sir; Yours of the 21st Sept,
came to hand and was read in ditguit. First
you ask pardon for addressing me, at this time.
This is granted, for I think a man who will hide
behind a stone fence when in command of a good
a company as Co. F, and go unpunished, should
be pardoned for any offense. Well, you say you
feel it your duty to write to me, knowing that I
was a good Democrat, and hope that I still am.
I am, and hope ever to remain such, and that I
will vote the whole Democratic ticket Ihare no
doubt, but it will be (Ae Union Democratic tick
et. I can't see the Democracy in you, nor your
ticket. We have no use for such men or tickets
in the army. I think yon have got on the wrong
side. Ihare not seen a rebel in six months who
was not a lrallandigham man. Why are you
not down here among your brethren can you
tell T I can because you did not find ifone fences
in the rear of all picket potts. You ask me
to give the tickets you sent me to all good Dem
ocrats in Co. F, and have them vote them. Well,
if I wanted 30 or 40 pair of army brogans taken
away from my rear, I would know of no better
way of getting it done than to ask the boys of
Co. F, to rote for Vallandigham, or cheer for
John Stout. '
The Dratt. It has recently been 6toutly
asserted by the copperheads, and reiterated
by some republican papers, that in case of
another Draft in any State, the State would
receive credit only for the men actually fur
nished under the late Draft, and not at all
for those who purchased exemption. The
matter is cleared up in the following letter
from the Provost Marshal General :

It is not true that the State of ew lork is
charged as with a deficiency for every citizen
who has paid commutation money, receiving no
credit therefor. On the contrary the State re
ceives the same credit for a man who has paid
commutation as if the drafted citizen had gone
in person, or furnished a substitute, and in bke
manner towns which have raised tne money to
pay their quotas receivelj the same credit as it

President has ordered every citizen who has paid
the S300 commutation shall receive the same
credit therefor as if he had furnished a substi-
lute, and is exonerated from military service
for the time for which he was oraneo, 10 wit.

mar Free I'rtu :
The feeling of the Honc with
reirreace to the expniiency of sabstitating a B
eense law for the existing prooibitorr liquor
law, ih manifested to-day in a manner that
leaves littk room for doubt as to what will be
the ultimate action en the subject. Mr. Bar-
j rows of Vernon introdoeed a bill. proTming fcr
1 such a chanze. Mr. Borrows u not only the
k representative from Vernon, but tne cmef man

member rose and spoke a word in his favor, and
the House humored him, and let the bill have
a second reading. Then Mr. Burrow wanted
the bill referred to a select committee of seven.
This was too much and the House would not

I notice that the House do not heshale
much to snub the Senate when oeeaaion oSer.
A Senate bill adversely reported by a House
Committee, though it may have cost the Senate
a good deal of time to perfect and pass it, is
thrown overboard without so much as an inqui
ry into its merits, or the reaons of the Commit
tee for reporting against it. A bill was so disposed
of this morning, not more than a dozen members
voting. The nailing of the bill was called for
by a member of the Committee reporting agaiat
it and the hare reading was deemed to give suffi
cient information, and the vote wa taken with
out further delay. The Senate are equally un
ceremonious in killing some of the House bills.
MOMTEUER, Oct 2$.
The main questions of the ses
sion are now fairly up for discussion and actios.
The Military Question has been presented in
about every form that is favored by anybody,
and the contest in regard to it is now in order at
any time. There is first a bill providing tor an
active organization of the Militia of the State;
then a bill for an amendment of the existing taw;
and proposals of various kinds to organize a por
tion of the Militia, and other propositions which
will reach the question in any form that mem
bers may prefer.' There is, evidently, a strong
party in favor of amending the existing law; but
there is, at the same time, an impression that to
do this will not satisfy the demands of the people.
The Appropriation Bill was taken up this
morning. In relation to the subject of Appro
priations, Mr. Chandler of Woodstock made
some statements to show that, if bills now pend
ing before the House should eventually be pass
ed there would be expenditures past ami pros
pective amounting to two and a half miluess cf
dollars, for payment of which provision woukl
need to be made. These expenditures, which he
particulirizeJ were military expenses of various
kinds. He thought, if said bills became iaus, it
might be expedient to impose a State Tax ouch
greater than that proposed in the bill. Thellouse
ordered the bill to lie.
