It appear from the inijiortant order from Col Fry, published below, that the quota of Vcnnont, of . r00,000 men, is 5550, against which we have credits amounting to 7572. In other words Vermont has still a surplus of over liro thousand men. There may lie towns, however, which are en titled to no share of this surplus.and are still deficient.

A "a ction of the Approriation bill, roi iding ,200,000 for the expenses uf the " National liuanl," so calbsj, lYasmnIor consideration. Mr. Alioni on tho floor denounced tne appointments ol ' commissioned ollicers under the new law as extremely artisan, mid asserted that they were in his district as nioetueli unfriendly to tho Government, to otic who a- true to the flag. "Another gentleman, aays the .V 1. Kie roil Mr. Healcy, of Wyoming, said that 111 his county the regiment organized nas entirely partisan; the colonel is chairman of the County 1 Democratic" Committee; tbe lieutenant-colonel is a leading "democratic politician," the major has been a ''democratic'' candidate for the Assembly, and the captains and lieutenants are democrats. Their foHowers were all told that if they joined this regiment they won id lie j exempt from the draft. They were told that Governor Seymour had control of this Guard and ' he was all right. . ' The evidence is conclusive that the icrsoDs ! engaged in organizing the "National Gaard have endeavored to surround themselves with men ' who do not sympathize with the government, in I its struggle with rebellion. Some, indeed, of 1 the more prominent managers have openly la- , bored to array the State against the general government In nearly every instance extreme men have been appointed by Governor Seymour. I Out of ninety-tix colonel, all but one are democrat ' " Kepeatelly loyal men have lieen turned away without commissions, to make room for partizan favorites. In one case, when i in the hour of the nation's perils a full regiment j wa (offered to Governor Seymour, it was reject. I ed without a single commission having been j given, fur no other reason than the disposition of 1 the men to fight for the country, while almost immediately thereafter a commission was given 1 to a man who is a colonel without a single sol- j dier. In another case an individual has been ; made colooel of a regiment who is an open so- 1 ccssionist, boldly opposing the war, and avow- 1 ing publicly that he would rather see the eoun- . try divided than the rebels subdued. i Another fact equally significant was disclosed in tbe course of this debate. Of all the regi- ' tnents that went from this State last July to the , defence of the North against invasion, not one i belonged to this pet National Guard." The ire of the democrats was greatly aroused by what was e tiled during the de bate. A correspondent of the N. Y. Com- 1 mercial says Charges of deliberate falsehood were freely ( given and retorted, until Gen. Crooke, of Brook lyn, obtaining the floor, hoped his old Demo- j critic friends would not show so much over-sensitiveness whenever a Democrat was charged I with being a Secessionist These charges really 1 meant nothing, and should be taken in a Pick- 1 wiclrian" sense. Everybody knew that Democrats, . as a body, were not all secessionists, but it was a lamentable fact that when a man was foun 1 whose sympathies were with the rebels he no(u rally sagged over to the Democratic rarty it was their misfortune. This brought down the house." He said that on his return from Get- tysbure with the Brooklyn troops last July, he was informed that organizations were forming , for secret purposes. He made investigations in relation to this matter, and ascertained that ( there were in King's County two such, with ' over fifteen hundred members each, sworn to oppose any draft by the General Government and to stand by the State Government; and further, that every man of these was'eithcr a so-called Democrat or an alien. He did not state this on hearsay, but as an actual fact This was a stunner, and progress was report ed on the bill. It was made a special order for March 1st. The entire appropriation will lie stricken out, the Act of 1HJ2 re-aled,.and the eld law revived, with some improienicnts " pro vided, alaais." that the l'jiecutii' iitodoes not prevent all this.

Unity Timet, Feb. ISA 1 Wi are endeavoring to lay this uicuin ad monition to heart, and to la; duly grateful Tor j such nuiortaiit information on a subject con cerning which certainly wc "ought" to have ' known something, and might hau known omething. it seems, by inquiring of our younger neighbor. ' Seriously, v.c can find nothing in the Fkie Press implying that the article (or"iinuiu tiicuiun," if the Times prefers that word,) signed "A.-'fi " was an editorial in that uifaT, or of ccitorial oiigm On the con- trarj . we expressly mentioned that it was signed " License," and spoke of the "writer" not of the editor. There are many, habitual drinkers in this town, whose ample means allow them to send out of the State for their supply, and keep it in their cellars and on their side-boards, for their own use and to give to their friends. Of course the Prohibitory Law does not interfere with their tastes or gratifications. On the other hand there are many honest, in dustrious, respectable, laboring men, who can not atfofd this expense, but who, in Mrir own opinion, need a little moderate ttiinulus. Is it just or fair that this l itter class should be praf- Ucally prohibited from its moderate nse, unless they are williue to "Ink their manhood bydrink- ing in mean ilaces, behind the door? The principle ot the Prohibitory Law, when thoroughly enforced, secures to the rich man his liquors but aits the poor man oil. litis u one reason that, in a democratic republic, it can not j e persistently aisl continuously enforced. Pat- ' It Timet Feb. 2K. The 7'imes has been arguing all along that ' the law is " miserably ineffective in restrain ing the sale and use of intoxicating liquor." AVe are glad to see that it is now frank ' enough to drop ibat pretence, and to own that the law iua-raL a. a iiractiraj nrohibi- tion of the use ol liquor to a great extent in the iMminumti , and to opposa: it on that ground. . (For Ike Fiat Pres.. -1juii. Edttort; I have bee nucb amused oy nading the "editorial" in the Uaily Timet of thai morning, headed 'The County Conven tion." The Editor considers the Convention of "grave importance.' I suppose he means the rnbjeet that calls the Cennutioa together, is of "-nit importance." I agree with him in that; for 1 believe it harries awre men to their grare than all other evus in the world. Jitvt. he seems to think it will be attended by bat lea of tbia respectahle citixna of tbe Count 1" .w. Can he mean to intimate that most of tlnae that will attend are not respectable Hrdoeshe mean that bis " large body of independent citi zens" ore afraid to come out and act in conven tion That is independence with a ven- ! geaace. No won-ler he calls them " think- Iing voters," as well as " independent citizens." I should suppose that a man who was asbam ' ed or afraid to speak and a t his sen timents on all proper occasions, would not 1 only "mi .iA ", but have the horrors of conscience besides. But who does the Kditor intimate that , they are afraid of nobody, only a few "tAnati- I prohibitionist : iiiers. He then iii 1- tn it the Prohibitory Law can be 1 teed."

Mr. Dawes regarded it as eitraor- dinary that Mr. Davis of Md. should on a form, r day have motel to lay these credentials on tne ublewithout even giving Arkansas a fair hear ing. Mr Davis of Md said hts objection was that his credentials assumed the pre-existence of a tate government in Xrkansas, which was not true io noint of fict.
