exiicditc the enrolment, docs not agree in all j

diversity exists in the different States in re-
lu "'uu-uivi.ions or minor iirganira-
tlfs to which thc people resort lor the

It n desirable that these organizations
should lie abhercd to. as far as pjssihle in '
raising volunteers. You will therefore con- '

as indicated alrnve. In large cities, wards

After you have arranged the sulsdivi-ions
as aliovc. vou will make a rert of them,
giv ing their number and name in each Con

correspond with thc suli-ditricts under the
old svstem. Then, whenever a man volunteers

town which furnishes its full quota, as as
signed by General Order No. 2, cufrent seri
es, dated November 2, 1S63, will not lw sub

lie credited with all the men furnished by it,
toward tho several quotas thus assigned, in
case a draft becomes neo-sary.
As this assurance obviate-, the principal
hindrance to the work of raising succe-sfully ,
by towns, the men called for, it i expected
and believed, by the Governor of this State,
that each tow n vv ill prosecute the work
promptly and vigorously . and with full con

In a previous communication from the I'rovost
Marshal General io the Governor of tins State,
dated 'ct. l'.. lftt, the quota of the State un
der the President's Proclamation for 30,no0
men, awl for the deticieney under the draft,
were stated as given In paragraph 2:1 of the In
structions to Selectmen, dated October 2s, ISM.
It will be perceived by the above telegram,
that assurance hu ln obtained, that the draft
ordered tor the ith of January, lr6l. will Iwde
rerrnl. in case the several towns in this State
shall, previous to that time, raise by volunteer
ing, the quota assigned lo them under the Presi
dent's Proclamation for 300,000 men, which is
the ijuota statel in tlie first column of Gen. Or
der No. 2, dated November 2, IS'. But the
ileficieiicy under the present draft still remains
a charge" against the State, and against the seve
ral deficient towns in the State, to lie included m
the draft ordered for thc flth day of January, or
at such other time as a draft may hereafter be
ordered, in i-av? a draft is rendered necessary by
a failure to raise volunteers.
The Selectmen of the several towns will, there
fore give their sjavial attention to recruiting men
first for filling the old regiments, under thc call
of the President.
All recruits, however, who may tnlit in the
new regiments awl Uittery now raising in this
State, will be received, ami will lie paid the
bounties severally mentioned in General Onler
No. 1, dated Oct. 2f. 1SV3. awl will be credited
to the quota asigned for the deficiency, under
the draft, of the town furnishing them; and
premiums for such recruits will be paid, as men
tioned in the additional instructions to the Select
men, dated Nov. I, 1S63.
Colored men, who enli-4, will be credited to
wards the deficiency under the draft, and will be
assigned to serve in colored regiments.
By order of thc Governor.

Tho above settles definitely a point which
has been a little in doubt. The question for
our town now is, shall we furnish fiftynine
volunteers, or be drawn on for one hundred
and ticenty-nine? and for Chittenden County,
shall it furnish three hundred and fourteen
volunteers, or have fist hundnd and thirty
eight taken by draft?
Men of Chittenden County ! these Volun

The section of the bill on the location of the
college was discussed by Messrs. Richardson,
Stoughton and Child, when Mr. Cree moved to
amend by requiring consent to the location by

Mr. Stoughton opposed the amendment. He
thought that we should take into consideration

the interests of the colleges.
Mr. Sifiord also opposed the amendment He
said there were two institutions upon the west

Mr. Nichols said he felt constrained to oppose j
the bill and the consolidation of the colleges. He
thouirht the provision which requires the college I
to be located in one jf the towns in which these
colleges are now situated, is objectionable, as the
whole people of tbe Sute have an interest in the
matter. He thought that the colleges would be I
unwilling to merge all their interests in this new
college. He understood that nearly all of the
real estate belonging to Msldtebury College had
been ceiled to it on the condition that the college I
should be used for specific purposes in Middle
bury; and. in his opinion, tne trustees or tbat
College would be unwilling to give up their real
estate. This bill would probably cause a war
among the colleges, and result in the benefit of
one college at the expense of ethers. The sub
ject has not been discued to any great extent,
and as it was of no great imjsirtance tbat this
law be pasMii at the present time, he hoped the
bill would not pass.
The bill was finally approved by the Commit

amendment; and the Senate adjourned.

The ISuston Traveler's army correspondent,
writing Nov. .id from near Bealton, says :
Every day has its movements in this part of
the army, conducted with greut caution, secresy
ami strategic skill, and as yet without loss. The
end aimed seems to be a slow but sure com
pression ol the ritel forces into a compass as
small as possible, so that if needful, they may
suddenly be assailed awl routed. The 3d Corps
left Cauett's Station three days ago and are
now compactly encamped within a couple of
miles of Bealton. !jwe six or eight miles off,
across Ibe Rappahannock, the rebels keep up a
she of force and have thrown np extensive
earth works to contest our advances. Our ca
valry watch their every stir and feel of them in
front and Hank whenever advisable. The other
I Corps, 1st, 2d, .ith and 6th, camp now, and then
move, according to the plans of Gen. Meade,
its mynad Lvnce-hke crystals. But the dan are
bright, clear and comfortable, the air bracing,
and the temperature even. There is no season
of the year better for marching and fighting,
than this, and it will hardly pass away without
an eilort ou the part of General Meade to force
his wily adversary to take the back track.
The Traveler's Washington letter dated
Wednesday evening says :
I hear good news from Gen. Meade. It i
sail that his whole army it moving. I don't
pretend to say irAere, but it is enough to know
that it is executing some new plan. Some say
that it has moved upon Lee, is crossing the Ra
pidin, and so forth. Others assert that Meade
is moving down to Fredericksburg and means to
take the short cut to Richmond. Others still
say that the army is falling back (strategically
of course) ujon Centreville. I will not attempt
io siaie me exact tacts, lor Jlr. Stanton might
accuse me of giving aid and comfort to theene-
m? thereby. It is sufficient to state that uiu.
19 doing, and I am certain of one thing
that the Army of the Potomac is in excellent
condition to deliver battle.

I'ETTER "hks--A returned soldier,
"".""s' report to a religious society, said :
' 1 vt'"" to speak of one way m which you
can do great good to your soldier friends in
the army. vv, rite to them many letters. I
am a sergeant, and so I bad much to do with
tlie mails of our regiments. 1 know that
when a mail arrives, every man looks for a
letter. All are looking. They want to hear
from home, l'hey think they ought to be re
membered. And when the mail comes in,
bringing no letters Irom loved ones at home,
I have seen men lieeonie exasperated under
the bitter disappointment, and take to gam
bling and drinking, nnd anything to kill
time. They will do these things out of
spite. 'Ihey will say, ' Our friends at home
cure nothing for us, and tbeyinust not blame
us if we caro nothing fur them.' And so
they will attempt to drown their sorrow in
tbe indulgence of some kind of vice. If
you could know liovv much good, kind,
Christian letters from fathers) and mothers,
and brothers and sisters, and wives and
sweethearts do to wildiers, in cX)infbrttrig,
restraining ami encouraging them, I Vhink
you would not be slow to write such letters
to them. Oh if yon would save them from
ruin, write many'lcttcrs. Then they feci
that your eye is upon them, and they are
restrained from falling into many sins.
The Great Okgas. Thc great Organ just
opened in the New Music Hall, in Boston,
about which the " hub" is all agog, cost, all
told. $65,000, of which the cose of the case
alone was $15,000
The case, 48 feet wide and 60 feet high, ii in
itself an art study. The whole front is black
walnut, relieved only by occasional touches of
gold, and a brilliant row of burnished metal
pipes; and almost every place where they could
be disposed, are grouped designs of every Hrt-
races and figures both (tern and grotesque, typi
cal and legendary, and musical mitrnmenta
every thing in moat perfect keeping. The two
immense towers, which, standing oat, boldly on
either tide or the centre, first fir youratteaticn,
are supported by two giant-like hermie whose
muscular development is aetcniihitig, yet if it
were less tEey would seen unequal to their,
There are also on the sides of thesa fow'rxi, two
heads or lions which are most remarkiIt 'for
their fiirceness. Every design' from the exquis
ite figure of St Cecelia with her lyre, lurtaounU
ing the whole, down'to the honest face of " oH
Sebastian Bach, is carved with a boldness, and yet
with a delicacy that is wonderful. Tie "stops axe
89 in number, and the pipes 5,474. Tie. wind
is gathered and condensed Is a huge reservoir,
holding some 400 cubic feet, which fed by six
great pairs of bellows, worked; by-a tiach&re.
whose wheel is turned Jy the Cochiroate water.
The greatness and importance of as organ is
not, however, to be measured altogether by the
number of its pipes. The York Cathedral ,01513
boasts 8,000 pipes, yet it is not great' as organ
as our own, which lacks some 2,500 of 'that
number. The great organ at Ula has nearly
109 stops, but for admirable proportions, com
binations, beauty and purity or tone, the Boston
Organ is said to excel any yet constructed, and
may justly be considered Walcker'a muter-work.
