THE CONSCRIPTION. Fourth Conscription in this District— The Wheel in Motion—Destiny in a Churn—List of Names Drawn. Trovost Marshal Wilcox's churn Is tho casket which holds the destinies of the men of the Seventh District. When It moves Its motions are more momentous to those within than the ordinary motions ol the earth up on Its axis ; when it halts it seems as if a pestilence had taken unto itself wings and fled. It is tho personification of uilsfor tune, tho embodiment of ill luck. The meanest thing is often the medium for tjho greatest events, and In this day and gener ation a man's fate is decided by the revolt! tlons of a churn. To the rich man it brings a pang, for it commands htm to part with his money; to the poor man it conveys a malediction, for It condemns him to part with his family, perhaps his life ; to all it brings tidings of uneasiness, regret, mortl flcation. sorrow and despair. The churn re volves with smooth and easy regularity, but in its revolutions It carries with it more sorrow and desolation than the wheel of an artillery wagon, which has been likened to a machine furrowing graves. - The Provost Marshal's churn was put in motion again yesterday, for the fourth or fifth time within two months, and there were seventy-four names drawn out. The draft was for thirty-seven men, but one hundred per cent, was added to make up deficiencies that may be made by the exam iviing boards. The following arp the names drawn: FRANKLIN COUNTY.

House op Correction Mayor Thomas In the message to tho City Council, which we published yesterday morning, on the sub ject of the establishment of a house of cor rection for lewd women, suggests the only possible remedy of the evil of which there Is so much complaint, and such a startling Increase in Columbus. Tho present system of eradicating the evil by arresting a few dissolute women and dismissing them after a short term In the city prison, serves to harden instead of correct the women. They only lose the slender stock of self-respect still left them by this course of treatment, and when released are more desperate, reckless and depraved than ever. The Mayor draws a startling picture of the condition of the city lit regard to the num ber of Cyprians now inhabiting It; but the records of his court and the reports of po lice officers show that the picture is not ex aggerated; and the misery and sorrow whlqh their presence entails is beyond com putation. The sufferings of this class of women, against whom so much complaint is made, If they could be accurately known or described, would be considered by all merciful persons a sufficient punishment for their mlsdopi)iors and a substantial argument in favor of, some means of cor recting their manners and alleviating their miseries. These unhappy women are often reduced to the point of starvation by their course of life, and compelled by their ne cessities to become the slaves of negroes who have not themselves been out of bon dage for a twelvemonth. Instances of hor rors of this kind too terrible or disgusting to be published', frequently come uuder tho notice of the public authorities. The only feasible plan to amend this grievous evil is tho one suggested by the ' Mayor, and it should receive the careful consideration of the City Council am their prompt and energetic action. ' a Affecting Incident. An inebriated veteran, just returned from the big wars, and feeling jolly in consequence of his re-i cent discharge, In passing a tobacco store, yesterday, at the. door of which stands a wooden representation of" the legendary Indian, pipe In haud, stepped up to it and clasping it by the neck in the most affec tionate manner exclaimed in pathetic tones "Let me kiss him for his mother!" The tone of voice and gestures, and the scene were so perfectly ludicrous that it was re ceived by tho bystanders with shouts of .laughter. . State Yard Concert. The Camp Chase Brass Band gave an excellent free concert on the eastern terrace of the Stato House last evening, to alarge and appreciative Au dience. Their music is excellent and their good nature in asking no admission fee can not be too much commended. If they were to perform on the west side of the State House it is thought they would have a much larger audience and a wider circulation for their notes, but of this the members of the1 band are the Judges.'

Exciting News from Washington-- Rumors and Speculations. Baltimore, July 11. The news from Washington Is exciting. The Star savs the skirmishing on, the Itockville road, that commenced at an early hour this forenoon, was continued by the advance of the rebel force to a point about four miles west of lennailytown. mere their progress on that road stopped, and they dispersed In some other direction. Subsequently we near oi mem Skirmishing Detween 11 and 12 o'clock on and around the Seventh street turnpike, near the Clagget farm and ine resilience oi t .i: jnair. it is reported to-day that the rebels burned the residence of Blair.- - . There were elzht hundred Infantrv onlv In the force encamped at Rockville last night, though the panic-stricken refugees arriving to-day from tho vicinity of Ed- warua terry, report the reoeis crossing north of that point yesterday and to-day in large numbers, some say '12,000 stronir. others 30,000. Breckinridge is believed to be in command of their advance in this di rection, and Imboden commands the cav alry now hanging around the fortifications. All was quiet in front of our picket lines upon what is known as tho river road, up to noon to-day. The Star savs: The number and mirnnses of the rebel invadinjr force are confusiiiL'lv conflicting. We give elsewhere tho opinion entertained by many around us, that the rebel force Is not of weight sufficient to un dertake a serious attack upon the fortifica tions of Washington, and that it is not their purpose to do so. Per contra, we have just received the following from a source of great Intelligence and reliability one that lias on repeated occasions had the earliest and most accurate information of rebel movements in Virginia. The information received from this quarter is as follows: Tho rebel army of invasion marched down tho valley 45,000 strong, Including 8,000 cavalry, under Breckinridge, Imbouen and MeCausland. Longstrect was at Gordons ville Tuesday last with additional forces to join tho rebel army of Invasion, and. the purpose ot that army was to attempt tiie capture of Washington by surprise. The Viririnla central railroad was renalr- ed and running from liichuiond to Stanton. Moscoy has 242 men In his command, and expects to havo his forco increased. In the tight at Aide Moseby captured e ghtv-ono cavalrymen, killed twentv: captured a Ma jor and a Impounder cannon from Kinchel- or s command; one company is operating near Fairfax -Court House and near Ou-coquia. LATER. Up to ouartcr past two o'clock the state of affairs in the vicinity of Ilabbltt's Kanch Postotllce continued to be about the same as during tho morning.. There has been no general engagement, but cavalry skirmish ing is going on at intervals. The enemy has hot made his appearance anywhere within range ot our guns, and so far has shown no disposition to do so. No casualties have been reported on our side in the fight this morning between Lowell and the rebel cavalry. Caiko, July 12, 11 I M. The steamer Belle of Memphis has just arrived with Memphis papers of yesterday. Transports from White river report guerrillas active along that stream. The Seamour and Com mercial on the way up were tired Into at Lambert's landing, on the 6th. Several other boats were tire fired into at different points along tho river, but sustained no damage. St. Louis, July 12. Bagwell and John son, lceses of the Olive street hotel, burned last night, estimate their loss at f 35,000 insured tor f 8,ouo. value ot building not known. The occupants of stores under neath the hotel escaped with trifling losses. urig. ucn. rue, superintending colored recruiting in Missouri, is ordered to the field with a brigade of colored troops. Gen. Ewing is hereafter to have charge ot r.egro recruiting in this State and will prosecute tho workwlth greater vigor than heretofore hos been done. Gen. Uosecrans' order No. 18 is belne very generally responded to throughout the State, anu citizens are gathering for self defense, and a determination Is every where manifested to put down bushwhack ing and plundering. LATER. Escape of Gen. Tyler---Conflicting LATER. Escape of Gen. Tyler---Conflicting Rumors as to Gen. Franklin--- Reported Fight Within Seven Miles of Washington. Philadelphia, July 12. The Baltimore American of last evening says Gen. Tyler escaped from the rebels and had reached Elliott's Mills. 'Reports of tho capture of Gen. Franklin are conflicting. Havre db Grace, July 12. A construc tion train left here this morning to repair the railroad and telegraph lines of the Amer ican Telegraph Company. Communication with Baltimore will probably be re-established this evening. Scml-ofllcial intelli gence has been received here that yester day afternoon a tight was progressing seven miles from Washington, on the Seventh street road, near Chrystal Springs. Parties from Blair, sixteen miles from here, report rebel cavalry there last evening. There is no doubt of tho Immediate necessity for heavy relnforcemente to Washington. PiiiLApKr piiia. July 12. Manager Wil son, of the American Telegraph Company, in Baltimore, went out last night and re built the lines destroyed by the rebels, thus reopening telegraphic communication be tween them and Washington. Trains now run regularly from Baltimore to Washing ton. Perrysville, Md, July 12. The report ed capture of General Franklin was incor rect. The mistake was made by the resem blance between the General and a passen ger. This statement is confirmed by one of Wallace's staff. , Baltimore, July 121 P. M. Every thing was quiet around the city last night. A force of rebels passed through Towsen town on their way to Join the main force. The rebels had with them Gen.

General Order from Gov. Seymour Albany, July 22. Gov. Seymour has is sued a general order directing the com mandants of all regiment of National Guard to hold their commands In readiness for immediate service. The Majoa Generals and Brigadier Generals are directed to see that this -order is at once promulgated throughout their divisions and brigade?. In connection with this order ho also issues an appeal to the people of the Stato to aid in carrying it out (jy joining the National Guard or by such other measures as will give that organization the number required by law. lie says unless this is dono at once, I can not respond to the call now made by the President of the United States. Tho na tional Constitution declares that a well reg ulated militia is necessary to tho security of a free State. If we had heeded this truth we should not have been exposed to invas ion, to the disgrace of riots, and to the haz ards of still greater calamities. The negli- enee and false economy which led us to isregard this warning have been fearfully realized. The cost of arming and equlplng r.hp National Guard would hare been trilling compared with the amount which New York must now pay as Its quota of tho ex pense ot driving back the armies which now threaten the national Capital. Let us be warned by tho errors of the past. I implore all citizens to lay aside passion and prejudice, and to unite in car rying out a law clearly demanded by the honor, tho interest and the safety of the State and nation. In many parts ot New York this duty has been utterly neglected, and the burthen of answering calls for the militia has been thrown upon a few sections of tho State. In time of civil war we are perplexed with many questions which are beyond the grasp of any mind. We see them from dif ferent standpoints and read conflict ing conclusions. It is onlv ignorance and bigotry which will make these differ ences and views the occasion for controver sies. However we may differ on other points, there should be no conflict of opinion as to the duties we owe the State and national governments. I exhort all not to allow their passions, their prejudices and suspic ions to increase the dangers which over hang us. Let us cordially unite in meas ures essential to tho preservation of the national unity, to the power of our State, the peace and good order of society. Fore most among them Is the organization of those liable to duty, without respect to creed or political opinions, into loyal military companies in order to meet the constitu tional demands of the General Government, to secure the enforcement of the laws of the State, and offord security to the lives and homes of our citizens. Tills must be done at once. Capture of the Steamer Electric Capture of the Steamer Electric Spark by the Pirate Florida. NewYoiik. Julv 12. On Siiiiilnv nfW. noon, the steamer Electric Spark, on a voy age from this port to Havana and New Or leans, was boarded and taken possession of uy tne privateer morula. W lien the Florida was first discovered she was distant about fifteen miles to the northward. and niakinir for tho Electric Spark, which gained on tier rapidly; when seven or eight miles distant uiu r 11.1 kiu noisieu me n,ugiish nag, which sho kept Hying until within twelve hundred yards of the steamer, when the rebel colors were substituted and a shot fired astern of tne iMcctric Spark, closelv followed by an other aecross her bow. Tho steamer not coming to immediately, a shell was lired, which, alter striking the water a few feet from the vessel passed directly over her about midship. The steamer then hove to and was immediately boarded bv a Dart v from the Florida, who took possession of ner anu oruereu her uiptain on board the privateer with his papers. All personal property was destroyed or taken, but the steamer with all tiic mails contained in six ty-live bags was retained. The English schooner Lave had been tire. vinusly boarded by the Florida, and was near by at t'.ie time of the capture of the Electric Spark. Botli steamers soon head ed for the schooner, which hove to until they came up. The Captain, crew and pas sengers, about forty in number, were then put on board the Lave, which was bound for this port. The Lave arrived here last evening. The Electric Spark had a very narrow escape from destruction, being mistaken for a transport. Had she not stopped after ine mini snot, a Droausiue irom the rebel battery, which was in readiness for the pur pose, would have destroyed here. Capture of the Steamer Electric Spark by the Pirate Florida. Hotel Burned--Guerrillas on the Missouri River. St. Louis, July 12. The Olive Street Ho. tel, formerly the Missouri House, kept by MiiicKwcu uuuuounson, was ncany destroy ed by lire last night. Losses not ascertain ed. Until further orders no steamboats will bo allowed to ascend the Missouri river above Jefferson City, without sufficient arms, ammunition and crew competent to defend her against the guerrillas now swarming in the counties along that stream. From Hunter's Command. New York, July 12. The World prints the following letter, dated Lexington, Va, June 12th: Yesterday we marched from Midway here, being quickened in the ad vance by the sound of Crook's guns, en gaged with General MeCausland, who held this place. They defended it with great acrimony, burning the bridge, playing on the hills as we came up with shells, and bushwhacking us from behind every tree. This was madness on their part, as we had beaten them before being Joined by Gener als Crook and Averill, and are now of course ablo to whip them twice over. It seems, however, that MeCausland was waiting for Breckinridge, who had been detached with his division from Lee's army to drive us back, or at least hold us between there and Richmond or Lynchburg, whichever we strike for. It is supposed the plan is to put all the broken brigades of the valley under Imboden, Jenkins, Mudwali Jackson, Me Causland, Jones, &o ralljcd together on a division of Lee's veterans, and then give us another trial for the valley. This morning we destroyed the Virginia Military Insti tute; to-morrow we move at daylight, but I have no irioa in what direction. Our sit uation is pressing and critical. But if not tuny employed by Grant, he can send down troops enough via the Lvnchburcr railroad to overwhelm us, but if Grant will hold all Lee's forces at Richmond, this column can make the rebel capital untenable within a few days by cutting off tho last main ar tery of supply.
