How the Yankee Army is to ije Ke
v "Up.?The New York Herald denies the. ti n
of the widely ciiculatcd report that there i*
be another draft immediately after the electio
and ad^ls:
There is not to I5e another draft, cither befo
^ the election or after it; but of course the go
ernment will soon want more men, and we a
glad to. learn that measures are finally to 1
taken .to establish a sensible, permanent rccrui
ing,aystcta. Men are not scarce in thiscountr
and the lhst call has demonstrated that by pro
er measures and a liberal bounty any nuttib
can be had. Men can be had in the Westei
otates tor three hundred dollars. It is propost
td offer fiv.e hundred dollars as a pennantbounty.
This sum ipakes an allowance for tl
Various expenses of the recruit, or even tlm
who .find him and bring him forward, and st
vleaves .a good margin for the benefit ol the *
cruit or his family. It gives a good sum, als
as a basis for the operations and activity of th
large number of persons who will thus he i
d\iced to lend their energies to the good cau!
of filling our'armies. Rccruitintr will thus b
come a permanent business in the country, wit
ramifications in every city and village, and wi
' " . for the first time jn the history of our war, 1
effective and productive of great results. .

United States-Consueatb,

Sir: The English screw steamer Sea King,
Viilt at Glasgow in 1863, cleared for Doinbay,
i\nl sailed from London on ilie 8lh instant
villi a large quantity of coal, fifty tons of metd,
and a crAv of forty seven men. in command
>f tJaptaih Cobbctt. Mr. Sisco, United States
onsular agent at Dover,-says he has reliable
nl'ormation that Captain Semmes is to base
[Ids vessel. From what is known at this office
ibout the Sea King, independent ot lire infbrination
of Mr. Sisco, I have not,the least doubt
ihc is the vessel the steamer Laurel is to meet,
and that Captain Semmes, wth the officers,
men and guns, taken ottt in the Laurel, will be
transferred to her. Their place of meet, ng is
not known to me.
The Sea King is a very fast; stromrlv built
find fine-looking sere * steamer. built ot' wood,
with iron Frame; and coppered, about one thousand
tons burthen and two hundred and 'wentv-two

Death of Ex Gov. Hammond.?The Hon.
James II.Hammond, ex Governor of South Carolina
and more recently a Senator from that
State, when the Union survived, died yesterday
morning at his residence on Beeeh Island. Tiro'
deceased was well known over nil this country
as a man of eminent genius and rare acqivir^
meats. His intellect was essentially classic-'?"
large, catholic and masculine; V* hen quite a
young man he was elected from his native
State to the House of Representatives and became
at once conspicuous as the opponent of
John Qnipcy Adams, on the Right of Petition.

From that time forth, until his health became
seriously impaired, this retnarkuble man filled
nearly all the most honorable and responsible
offices of the commonwealth of South Carolina.
