The lfiicials are ready to ,'fiot their military Jottery in motion, ' wbenovor tho Government stall seo fit, iiiiil it is surely time for our citizens to ''understand where they aro in this '' inattor, so that they may either take 1' liold vigorously, and sup)ly tho few jitori wh6 aro requiro 1 in this first draft, ""or prepare themsolves for thocouscrip tion on failing to do so. Thero is no reason to think1 that tho time will be xtcnod, 'and tho numbor required from bach district in tbe State is compara tively so small, that oo additional time to'bscapo a draft is Boeosnry, if a mod- 'crate effort is ruado to that end. Wo havo concluded to give below, ' ih addition to somo items concerning ' ''tho draft, a roviow of tho measures ,,J;ov taken by tho Government to raise '""volnntoors, giving tho bounties, pro miums, and all incidental advantages porlaining to the present method of'se- 1 '.curing troops by vol untoering. There '' 5s tl Confusion concerning this in the public mind, which can easily bo cleared "'jftwiiy, by an attentivo glance at the "'fact wo present. Sinco tho 2."th of last September, tho three years troops in the field have been nt liberty to cut -thpii' old enlistment short, and com marteo a now one for throo years or tho .

It is evident that the more speedily tho troops in the -field take advantago of this unprocedetitodly libelnl provision, "vtllo Sooner thoir socohd term of service '"will bo over. ' This is not thoroughly 1 ' "understood in tho army, wo havo ob '; 'oorod but tho order of tho War De- -'"'jiartmuriti which wo publish below, E1 ; will inakb it clear. We are indebted '"to Col.

This would re? .i,duce .tho quota of this county to about 4 500, pr 250 jn each Congressional Dis trict, or about onp ;n every soventy- :.ine THE VOL. 4. NO. 31. fivo ot tho voting population. The quota of' each sub-district (of which thero nro about twenty-two in each Congressional District in this county) is fitmut cloven and a half. It can therefore bo seen that this mere sqund of men could easily bo se cured by volunteering in each district. Iho Government oners to even Bound volunteer a bounty of $!502, and, in cases whoro tho volunteer bus served in any of our armies for a term not less than nine months, ho receives an ad ditional 8100, making 8402 in all. Iho recent call ot tho l'residont for 300,000 volunteers, of which number Ohio must furnish her quota, in addi tion to tho present deficiency of 5,000, and the lact that tho provision to pay raw volunteers a Government bounty of SJ02 expires December 1, or about six wocks, is proot enough that it is advisable toencourago volunteer ing in every way, and with all possi bio haste. Tho bounties now paid mako the sorvieepoeuniarily attractive to any man ' who receives a sahtny of less than ton dollars per week. In the army ho rocoivos his food and clothing, and his pay in such installments as to induce him to savd it. Thoro is no rea son why a privato, who has no claim on his wages, and who volunteers at the present tnuo, should not como out 8U00 or 8700 ahead, after deducthi"; three dollars per month for tobacco, stationery and "othor refreshments.' TflF, nOCNTY TO HAW VOLUNTEEUS Is, as wo havo said, $1502, paid in the foi'Iowing installments: 827 on being mustered into the service; $t0 two months after said muster; 810 six months after Baid muster ; 10 each at tho end of one year, eighteen months, .two jears,.two years and a half, and tho balance at tho oxpiration ot ser vice.. Ono month's pay is also ad vanced at tho muster, making a total of S40, paid to tho recruit as soon as he is mustered. Tho IVovost Marshals, it will bo re membercd, nro authorized to receive volunteers. Applicants aro examined every niornin::. at 11 A. II., and il passed sent to Columbus for muster. The recruit has tho privilege of so locting any regiment in the service for lus lujuro military career. Tun right is plainly of great advantage to the volunteer, who can enter tho service among the veterans of his acquuin tance, in whose hands ho will doubtless graduato much nnro speedily and agreeably than under othor circum stances. WHO MCST GET TIIKJR EXEMPTION PA PERS 11EP0RK THE DRAFT. Farents, who havo the privilege of solocting ono of their sons for exemp tion, in accordance with tho provisions of tho Conscription Act, mijst procure such exemption papers previous to tho draft, tor the obvious reason that, in asmuch as, in all probability, not moro than ono would be drawn, tho parent would, if permitted to mako tho elec tion after tho draft, select for exemp tion whichever ono was conscripted. This, of cotirso, tho law does not have in view. Tho Hoard of Enrollment sits ovory day at each Provost Mar shal's oillco. and application for this spocies of exemption, but none, other, must bo made to thein before the draft takes place THE BOUNTIES FOR "VETERANS." Any man who has been in service in any of tho armies in tho field for a period of nine months or more, is on lie 1 now, upon volunteering, to 8 102, in installments, as sot forth in tho or der of tho department relating to this matter, which wo publish below. Thoso who have served for that length of time, and who can puss tho surgjon, receivo that amount, and, also, have tho privilege of selecting tho regiment iu which they will servo. Those who are still iu service in the three years regimc.ts, can, in accord ance with tho order below, commence a new term of enlistment and receive 8102 in bounties. It will also be ob served that all soldiers so vo-enlisting are entitled to a speedy furlough of thirty days, which is long enough to got tired of civil life, if we may be lieve half of what wo hear from officers tint men on leave of absence from their regiments. It is time that activo efforts were bo ing made in tho army to re-enlist the three-years' regiments, whose terms expire next summer and fall. They are among tho flower of our soldiery, and cannot well be spurei' on any terms. Tho Government is willing to pay them well for furlhot' service, in greenbacks as well as gratitude, and wo think if the proper ellorts wero be ing made, the rolls of the '-veterans" might bo flowing back to Washington even now. The thirty days the' will bo permitted to spend utbomo, will be sufficient to induce thousands of tho ro eulisted veleraus to be thankful for re entering tho army ; not that thoywill not bo gratofully rccoivod, but boeauso they sooiit yearn for tho accustomed excitement of tho field...

The cost and trouble of organizing tho Provost Department throughout the country, lias been great, but now that tho wheels ot tho various districts are running smoothly, tho benefits arising from it are more than commen surate. Since tho inauguration of the office, 250 deserters havo boon return- o I from tho First District alono. If the eighteen other Districts have done as well, nearly 5,0(10 have been returned from the State. Nino-tenths of this number have bocn arrested during the last four or hvo months. Previous to the 28th of September a reward often dollars was paid to the person apprehending and delivering a deserter. Sinco that timo, tho reward has been increased to thirty dollars, which amount will be paid to any per son who brings a deserter before any Provost Marshal. In addition to the regular polico there aro a number of detectives employed in arresting the skulkers of the nrm Every Provost Marshal is furnished with formidable books, in which tho names of tho doscrtcrs from every rog- iment in tho servico nro entered. Uy referring to theso, ho quickly decides upon the truth ot a chargo ol this kind brought against an individual. The culprits aro sent back to their regi ments under guard, to await trial. CREDITS FOR VOLUNTEERS. Each district will be credited with the number of volunteers it furnishes, and as far as possible, every sub dis trict also.' If Hamilton county, within u week recruits her quota of five or six hundred, iy moro men will bo re quired from her, though tho draft takes place throughout tho rest of tho State. MARKING TREKS. Every body has fell the want of some effective plan of marking fruit trees iD the orchard. All sorts of labels have been tried, and most persons depend for strict accuracy on having a manu script list made of the trees as they aro numerically arranged on the ground. This is very well, but ns one has to have the list always about, or sometimes likes to graft several kinds on one tree, tho plan is so far object ionable. Xow, it is a well known fact, that tho scratch of a pin on the bark, leaves a sear that endures almost with the life of the tree. We were shown a beech tree,. Gently, in Delaware county, by a middle aged man, witu tuo iniuais of his father still plainly traceable, which were scratched on the bark when bis father was a boy. Tho samo can bo done with fruit trees, as we believe wo saw suggested somo years ago in an agricultural journal, but which, like a good many good ideas that yearly float over tho great sea of the agricultural press, has nearly been forgotten. Wo saw some trees a few days ago that had been marked in this way, and it re minded us that tho idea was worth re suscitating. . Tho letters of tho namo aro scatched on tho under side of the branch, and tho letters one above tho other.

Milk, good, sweet milk, is tho most natural and healthy lood of humanity. Children love it, old age craves it, and country people livo on it. Bread and milk is the far mer's healthiest supper, and certainly conducive to longevity. We have in mind persons ot great ago Wrose diet has been largely milk. The dill'erence in the healthiness of country and city depends in no email degree upon diet Milk is uot an exciting beverage It does not temporarily stimulate the fac ulties like hot or strong drinks. It is not a disliior tho bustling tradesman, or the warrior on the day of battle. It belongs to the country, to tho iuno- cenco of lite, to healthy growth, to uu- porvcrted taste, to calm and honest en deavor. No ono need greatly fear the villainy ot a lover of milk. Milk is an object of so much import ance that all agricultural societies should mako it a principal object to foster tho product of tho dairy. We need better cows. According to the last census, thero were 144, 4!) of theso animals in tho State. 1800 quarts per aunum is about tho average of the cows iu the Northern .States. (Some give 3,000 quarts and others only- 1,000. No cow is worth milking that falls below this average. Greater care and attcn tion to dairy stock will materially help tbe farm profits. No wonder that the farmer complains of hard times, when tho majority of tho cows arc kept at a loss. The average annual yield of Mas sachusetts cows, according to the last census, is only 1,108 quarts. Notwithstanding milk is so common, its management and preservation are noorlv understood. Milk wanted sweet Ibr 24 hours, should bo deprived of its animal heat as soon nspossiblo in hot weather. One of the best ways to do this is to place tho nowdy filled cans J in fresh, cold water.

A tnilk housc should therefore be closed when a storm is rising, and at other times havo pure air. Milk can also bo pre served by scalding ' and evaporation, but neither is asgood as the first meth od. Unlike other products, the value of milk is determined by its proximity to market. Sweet Cider. 'When it has ferment ed a very littio, remove all foreign sub stances bv straining, or other meahs; add to tach barrel about four quarts of crushed borse-radisb roots, and you will have cider, both sweet and pleas ant, that will remain in that same state as long as you can reasonably desiro.

Utterly exhnnsted I had dropped outside of her chamber door upon- tho floor of a front mom. AtmyleStand about four feet f.om me was the open door into the hsl:. I threw my apron over my head, bowed my head into my lap, find my soul began an unspolren prayer. 1 bad been in Gethsemane before, had wn-sUed in prayer until I vondercd that the sweat upon mo and the tears that forced their, way were not of blood; but never bad I known ivhat it was to be abandoned to an ag- o iy like tuat wuicn overwiieinvou io now. - i lift 1 ca.led .111 tlus j-pirivs 'Why bast thou forsaken me, my God?
