With regard to UalUlfy to draft of mem'bsrecf 1U Enrollment Bod'd cad of Supers, Owkiok,—lt seems that under the compre hoj«vc language ol the Enrolling Act, sutlers, together with the members of the enrolling boiud are necessarily subject to draft If the latter ore now in the military service it may be aground, should they be draped, for re lieving them from the duties of the field, but not having been In the military service on the So of March, the law gives them no privilege of exemption beyond that which is secured to other citirene. Jn cat <f Ezeirplioi, s Obtained by Means of Sfji - davit. Ortxios<—So long as the certificate of ex emption remains in force, it would not be proper to hold the drafted man as liable to iDillT»ry service. Tho judgment of the. En rolling Board is declared by the law to be final upon questions cf exemption, bat it is so only while that judgment remains nure versed. The Board, like any other quasi ju dicial body, may revise Its om action, and correct any errors which it-may have commit ted. If, therefore, the decision has been based on oaths or testimonies subsequently ascertained to be false, theßaaid should, hiv ing first given notice to the party, proceed to' reconsider Its action; and ifi fur the reason mentioned, the judgment should be found to be erroneous, it should be set aside, and the certificate of exemption based upon it, should be vacated and held for naught. The persons making the false oaths in the matter would be subject to prosecution, but as the military authorities have the fimclaim upon the patty drafted, he should not be turned over to the civil authorities without the special direction of the Secretary of War. Jh cate of perto/ii* who were exempted from Vx draft of aB*S, hy reason of being engaged in the mauvfact-re (f art ns for the Ootemment. Omxio»-t Nogrouodia perceived on which the claim of exemption made for these men can rest. The letter of the Secretary of War does not tench the question. It recognizes them, it is true, as in the service of the Gov ernment, but this they may well be without thtir being In the military service in the sense of tho enrolling act. They do not seem to have been ever enlisted, or to have been for mally entered into the service for which they were drafted, but, on the contrary, were ex cused therefrom because of their being en gaged in the manufacture of arms for the Government in Colt’s establishment. It is in reference to this latter employment that they arc spoken of by the Bee rebuy of War as in the service of the Government, and such ser vice most clearly cannot exempt them. In cagtcfasub*titut( uho prvseito ht a dererUr from military <?erri«. or a man altcadyhiihii tertlce. Omaox.—A znan who is under obligation to' perform military duty on his own account cannot certainly be received as a for another. To be acceptable In the sense cf lac law, he must possess all the legal qualifi cations for the service, but an enlisted man has disqualified and absolutely disabled him* pelf for performing the duties of a substitute !.y engagements entered into with the Govern ment. If the Board of Enrollment hoe been imposed upon, and has granted a certificate of exemption because of a substitute famished who proves to be a deserter, or one already in the military sendee, the Board should, after notice to the party, proceed to reconsider Its action, and should set aside its former judge ment, and annul the certificate of exemption granted. Its right to do so on a proper show ing Is undeniable, the act ot determining up ?n the acceptability'of the substitute being judi cial in its character, and subject to revision and reversal- The certificate of exemption having been thus vacated, the party’s original liability under the draft remains. Jab. B. Fur, Provost Mar’l Gen’L TEE OXXT SOX'. The clause concerning the only son, liable to do military duty, or a widow, dependent upon his labor for support, Is thus construed by the Provost Marshal General: A widow may have several other sons, but if they are not liable to do military duty, then the particular son on whom she ie dependent jor support will be exempt; but if her other sons are liable to do military duty, the fact that she is dependent on the labor of a parti cular eon for support, will not exempt him from the draft ALTEXB. The following order in regard to aliens was Issued bythe Provost-ilarbhal-General to-day: Wab DBrAjnsnarr, ) Pbovost ItAMtUL-GexEnaL’s Office, v Wa-inscTOrr, D. C., Aug.

Until snch decision shall have been obtained, all action in the case shall be suspended. The certificate of the State Deportment shall be deemed conclusive evidence, and the question of liability or non-liability to the draft shall be decided by the Board of Enrollment in ac cordance therewith. Javca b. Fbt, Provost-Marsh al-GeneraL Drafting and Volunteering In Wis consin* State op WiscoNnx, Executive Dxpat’t, ) Madison, August 8,150 J. f To the People of Wisconsin: On finding a report In the public journals that the General Government had given thirty days* time to the State of New jersey, before enforcement-of the draft therein, in order to enable the people to raise their quota of troops by the volunteer system, I applied to the Secretary oi War for the eamc privilege for Wisconsin, and have received the follow ing reply: *‘Tbe preparations for the draft In New Jersey are not yet completed, and tbe Governor of that Stale is permitted to continue tbe enlistment of troope by volunteering until the draft takes place, w hen the State will bo credited with the men thus xalFCd. The case is similar in Wisconsin; the prepara tions tbare, also, are not completed. Too can, therefore, proceed with the enlistment of volun teers until the draft is ordered; and the troops so raised and reported to the Adjutant General of the Anoy, as mastered Into the united States service, wifi be credited on the quota ot the State.” If; therefore, towns, cities or counties in this State desire to avoid conscription, or to reduce their quotas by volunteering, they may proceed to furnish volunteers lor three years or daring the war, and will receive credit ior them. These volunteers may en list in Wisconsin regiments in the field or in the battalion of heavy artillery now being re cruited. 1 have not yet been advised of the number ol men required from Wisconsin, or Irom any district, and whether new regiments can be organized. In another communication from tbe Provost Marshal General concerning the assignment of quotas to towns, he cays: “Tour letter of the 85th last. has been received. 44 W’hcntho quotas of the several districts of Wifconeln arc calculated, the excess or deficiency of troops furnished by each district under the calls of 1661 and 1862 will be considered, and due credit elves, bat in regard to assigning quotas to par* ucnlar towns or location, there are no sufficient data upon which to make the necessary calcula tions. 44 The statement furnished to Col. Lovell by the Adjutant General of Wisconsin and by him sent to this office, gives only a portion of tue number claimed to have been famished, to particular towns. Tor example in the statement referred to, the let Congressional District is represented to have furnished 1M men enlisted since the enroll ment of 1682. of which only 77 are assigned to tonus, the remaining 87 being reported as persons whose residence cannot be ascertained. It is therefore impossible to calculate the quotas to be furnished cnocr the present enrollment in any other way than by taking the number enrolled in the whole Congressional district as a basis and allowing credit for any surplus which may have been furnished by that district under former calls. This will l>e done, and if It shall be found, after ouotas have been thus assinged, that any partlcu lartown has ectuaJlyfomished a surplus of men over Its previous quotas, a number of those draft ed to tffis surplas wm^dlschwged. •*Tbe only means of ascertaining whether a town has actually furnished an excess trill be to have a list of the names of all the men famished by towns claiming an excess prepared, and com pared with the names of all men from, that town flctnelly mustered into the service United States, and borne upon the mustcr-Jn-toHs on file in the office of the Adjutant General of the army. “Tbisv.lll show how many men from a town nave been actually furnished, while the tables glv “C numbejs claimed to have been furnished differ bo much from the numbers known to have been Clothe United Slates service, thatno inat conclusion can be arrived at from them.” Under these circumstances, I would advise HAJftI GMEBAL JOIN A. LOGAN, IVc Ocvole a large share of oar space else where to the eloquent utterances of Major Gen. John A Logan, to an immense gather ine of loyal citizens at the Court Souse Square last evening. It will gratify many of our readers in and out of the city that we are able to accompany this rcoprtof Gen.Logan’s views of the war, with a very accurate like ness ot this gallant Illinois soldier. He is in commend of the 3d Division of the 17th army corps, under Gem McPherson, which in his leadership has permanently earned the proud title of the “righting Third.” Gem Logan is a native IlUuoisian, and was bom in Jactson county, la 1533. Receiving a common education, such as the schools of that day afforded, native talent and industry stood him. In good stead, enhancing and to the fullest degree realizing upon the limited advantages ha enjoyed. At the ago of nine teen years bo served in the Mexican war, first as lieu'enant, and subsequently as Adjutant in the Ist Hllncis Volunteers. Retut uing to hie native State at the elese of the war, he entered upon the study and practice of the law, and speedily took a prominent rank among the growing yourg politicians and request that the people of each town, or ward of a city or village, appoint at once a committee to prepare a complete list of all men that have volunteered from such town or ward, as they may be ready with the re qnim-d evidence. These lists should be very ctr< fully made, giving accurately the name of the soldier end the company and regiment in which he enlisted, and not containing the name ol any one who was not, when he en listed, an actual resident of such town or ward, fox, if inaccurate, such a list may be entirely rejected.

Boeccrans, urging again upon the alien* lion of the Administration the plan he urged Bet year, and the mounting of a considerable infantry force to operate through Kentucky and Northern Alabama against guerillas. It is believed that a special necessity exists now for speedily putting such a force in the field, as otherwise the rebel arms will degenerate into mere marauding bauds of guerillas, and tic whole country will be filled with their pillaging. Gen. Bosseau seeks to raise a force ol 13,003 to 16,000 men, a small portion to be equipped as regular cavalry, the rest as mounted Infan try, armed with Sharp’s or Colt’s rifles. It is believed that superior inducements as such service would offer, would speedily famish a decided number by volunteering. A more gallant and dashing officer than Gen. Bossean could not be found to lead them. TVahungto!*, August 9.—Gov. Seymour, -under date of Albany, Aug. 8, writes to the President with respect to the draft la New York and Brooklyn. He condemns the course of the Provost Marshal, in commencing the draft without consultation with the city or State officers, at a time when the militia were absent at the seal of war, and while there were not even soldiers enough to mm the fortifications in the harbor. The Governor complains of unfairness in tbe enrollment, and thinks, in this lottery for human life, as be terms it, there should be strict impartiali ty. In the rand districts, the draft has been executed' with justice, and conscripts have accepted their fate without a murmur, and sometimes joyfully. In the districts of New York, however, with a population much less, the number to be drafted is, in some cases, double that of the former. Tbe attack on the enrolling officers, which subsequently grew into the most destructive riot known in the history of the country, he pronounces unjustifiable. Speaking farther of the riots, InNewTork, hesays that the disregard for law, and disrespect for judicial tribunals, pro duced their natural results of robbery and arson, accompanied by murderous outrages on a helpless race, and, for a lime, the very existence of tbe commercial metropolis of onr country was threatened. It is gratifying that the citizens of New York were able, without material aid from the State or nation, to put down this dangerous Insurrection. For a time, the nation had not the means to pro tect its own arsenals and navy yards. One tbousaue men could have seized them all, aud then used armaments for tbe destruction of the shipping, and the city ilfielf, to say noth ing of the vessels which were at that time en gaged in burning our merchant sldps almost within sight ol our coast. The Governor also complains that no credit has been given to the city for the number of volunteers sent, and the noble exertions of the militia in times of peril. He therefore asks for a suspension, at least, of the draft till its constitutionality ■ is tested. The President, in reply, under date of August 7tb, cays he cannot suspend the draft in New York, because time is too important. He admits the disparity of the quotaem differ ent sections, aud accounts for it by tbe £icfc that so many more persons fit for soldiers are in the city than in the country who have too recently arrived from Europe to be included in the ‘census of ISTO. Stul, he would not consider that reason sufficient. He would direct the draft to proceed, drawing only the average quota of all districts. After this. drawing, the city districts shall be carefully re-enrolled, and the Governor’s agents might witness every step of tbe process. Due credit will be given for volunteers. The President would not object to abide by the decision of the Supreme Court. Be would be willing to facilitate It, but could not consent to lose the time.

No dcubt is now entertained of the ability of the Secretary to procure oil the funds necessary to the successful prosecution ol the war, if economically and vigorously conducted.

He has been Indefatigable in his zeal in pushing forward the glorious campaign in the Southwest. He was made a Major General in the early part of the present year, while at Lake Providence. Gen.

On Saturday, as Deputy Marshal Barger, un der United States Marshal Keys, of this city, with a party of five cavalry, were scouring the woods in the vicinity of Lavonle, fifteen miles south of here, he came upon a lino of EL G, C. pickets, who opened fire upon him and his men. The Marshal charged and scat tered his assailants, capturing one man armed with U. 8. Army revolver and belt. They took these from him, and proceeded to Lavo nie. On Sunday, some one hundred of the K. G.'C.’s gathered in the neighborhood of the village, and threatened to burn it if the revolver or Barger, they did not care which, was not given up. A committee of leading Democrats went out to meet them and prevailed upon them to ; abandon tbclr diabolical purpose’ until the matter was investigated.^;Me&awhile the in habitants cent for aid to this city and about 200 of the Union men armed themselves to repel the invaders.

Very grave complaints arc made iu conse quence of the suffering In the rebel army, eaused by its recent movements. It has been .poorly fed, and all are despondent.

Aug. 10.— There was a meeting at Fasin, Hi., on.:the sth, at which thero were about 600 persons present. - It was addressed by one Robert Davis, a lawyer of Hillsboro* in which he used language of the following Import: He said—“ You should resist the conscription with your rides, your shot guns, and whatever weapons you can get hold of.’ If your young men don’t resist the conscrip-, tlon,you arc unworthy to be called American citizens. Will yon permit Lincoln and his /shoulder-strapped Phillips’ any longer to' moke laws and put them In force at the point ol the bayonet. It was only last Monday the election came off in Kentucky. On the Friday previous, Burnside issued on order that no Democrat should be allowed to vote.

No armed bauds will ptobably gut through the moun tains. Our news from-Tennessee, though similar in tenor to what we have been'accustomed to receive any time during the war, becomes un usually painful, in view, of the long-suffering of tbis abused people. The late conscription act appeals to be the only-one--last piece-of cruelty needed to complete -the*ruin ot' E wt Tennessee. , The able-bodied men had either been forced Into the' rebel ranks, <-r. made, their escape. The rebel government now de mands the services of all between the ages of forty-five and fifty-five. A requisition has been made by Davis on Gov. Harris for 8,000 of this doss, and as many will escape, this number will take about oil that may be left up to fifty five years. The most desperate and determined efforts to escape, on the part bt conscripts, are met by the most wanton cruelties by the rebels, wbo do net attempt to take them, but shoot tlem down like wild beasts whenever and wherever found. The inhuman slauchter of there poor fellows taking place daily and openly, Is absolutely horrible, and would bo incredible but for'’ the testimony of almost hundreds of wi'nessea daily. It is a- worthy comment upon the Immitigable insolence and stupendous hypocrisy of Mr. Vice President Sicpbets’ pteudo mission to Mr. Lincoln “to mitigate the barbarities of war.” This war, and scarcely any other, can surpass the inhu man cruelties pmeueed by those lying hypo crites In East Tennessee. Even this last con scription act is intended and employ ed more *os a cloak to their bar beries than to obtain- soldiers, since it fur nishes excuse to seize property, hang, kill and vent the moat infernal passions with im punity. Boys under twelve years of age have been riiot on their kness at their mothers’ feet; Onion men, old and young, have been shot audhanged in presence.of their agonized wives or mothers; females have been brutally murdered for concealing tbeir sous or hus bands, or violated in presence of their bound and helpless male protectors. Rapine, pil lage, arson, rape, - and murder arc no longer crimes in East Tennessee, and no rebel soldier lus yet been punished for any offense against a Union man or woman. And these are the demons who prate of rights aud. superior civ ilization, whom Northern Peace Democrats think are wronged, and to whose superior aromas Northern mudsills should submit the control ot the Government. v The wheat crops In East Tennessee were large. The rebel Government presses harvest hands and thrashers, and assumed the owner ship ct the whole, collecting and moving it os rapidly as possible. The corn crop is on average one. The rebel Government orders details for Its culture and preservation, and will gather that also when the time comes. News of rebel forces differ but little from previous diipatchcs. Gov Robinson has re ceived information, however, of Bragg’s en try into East Tennessee, 40,000 strong. Time will no doubt develop a new campaign on the part of rebcldom, whose base will be iuTen nessee. We shall see. The Trial of Steam Fire Engines In Englund—icoport of Ciiluf Engineer Hatrltt, of Chicago. To Messrs B. 1L Skinner, J. H. McYlcker, Gage «fe Drake, Stiles,' Burton, Gago & Waite, Walters & Rogers, Lewis, Pago & Go., and others: Gentlemen: To you, -who, with others, so kii.diy aided mo in the arrangements In my visit to London, with a view of Improv irg my knowledge of fire apparatus, and the management and conduct of the same at fires, it is hut proper that on my return I should make a brief statement of the results: I Ufc Chicago on the 4th day of June, and proceeded to Boston. I immediately put myself In communication with George S. Alien esq., Secretary of the Bos'.ou Fire De partment, who, with Chief Engineer Bird and Ex-Chltf-Enginecr Barnlcotc spared no labor u> promote the object of my visit. Under the guidance of these gentlemen I inspected thoroughly the engine houses, apparatus, and the fire alarm telegraph. Of the latter, its necessity and its mine. I cannot sneak too highly. On the of I left Boston per steamer Asia, Capt. Shannon, Jas. B. Penn, chief steward, and Mr. McAllister, chief engi neer, all of whom 1 take great pleasure In thanking tor their kind attention during the voyege. Upon arriving in London I was re ceived with the utmost courtesy by our fel low citizen, Charles L. Wilson, esq,Secre tary of the American Legation. To Mr. Wil son it is but juijt to say mat I was mainly in debted for the uniform courtesy and attention which I received from every London official with whom I came in contact, or with whom 1 bad any business. The value of such assist* ar.ee can only be tollv appreciated by those who have experienced the difficulties of gain leg access to public officers in a foreign coun try. Mr. Wilson, with all the pride of coun try, and proud also of his own city, was un tiring In his efforts to have the humble repre sentative of the Fire Department of Chicago treated with respect and attention; and ne succeeded most admirably, for never in any part of the United States did X meet with more attention, or greater effort to facilitate my object, than I received from the various officers, high and low, in London. With Mr. Wilson I culled on B. M. Shaw, esq., Superin tendent of the Loudon Fire Engine Depart ment, at his office. That officer gave mo much valuable information, and he imme diately ordered to have the floating steam en gine on the Thames worked for us, that wo might have a practical exhibition of the use fulness of this important branch of the ser vice. 1 found several Americans in Loudon, to all of whom lam greatly indebted ioractsot kind assistance, and for those little courtesies that made my stay there so personally agree able. The Secretary of the Royal Society for the protection of life from firs, S-mpsonLow, jr., ordered a special exhibition of the fire escape at Whitehall place, in order that I might have an opportunity of witnessing the practi cal working of this valuable Invention. This Society, it should be stated, Is purely humane In-its objects, and is supported by voluntary contributions, and is independent of the fire brigade, but works in conjunction with it. I have brought home with me copies of print ed drawings of the machinery, with full in structions as to their use and manage ment, and I think that with some modifica tions the escape might at no distant day be introduced into our fire department with profit and advantage. The official reports of the operations of the Society during the last year, copies of which I have brought with me, show how valuable have been its efforts in sating life. 1 saw the distribution of med als, Ac., to those who have saved life daring 1662. I found that steam fire engines in England are yet in their infancy, there being up to this time only three in use, and these arc in London. .The object of the exhibition of steam fire engines which I attended was to endeavor to impress upon the public mind their great value andituportance, and by the offer.of liberal premiums to manufacturers of locomotives and other steam machinery, to induce improvements and other changes, that the imperfections of those now in use might be remedied. The exhibition was, how ever, a very small uflUlr—not as great as we might have gotten up in Chicago. There were but seven engines present; of these, two were of American make; hat the Manhat tan engine, Ho. S, from New York, In pro ceeding to the place of exhibition, was upset, and so injured that it could not be worked until repaired; the other first-class American engine did work, and was successfully leading oil its competitors, when, unfortunately the bead of the cylinder blew off, and she was forced to withdraw from the contest. The award of premiums waS as follows: Ist, To the patent steam fire engine of Messrs. Merriweather & Sons, of Longacre, £250. 2d. To the steam fire engine of Shand, Mason & Co., of Blacktrlars road, £IOO Second . 'Chits—To the email steam fire engine of Stand, Mason «fc Co., £250, and to Lee’s engine, £IOO. Though 1 found that even in London the steam Ore engines have made but little progress, and that In their uae'aa well as manufacture this country leads England at a long distance, still, from the working and discipline and general management of the London Fire Department, I learned much practical Information that I could not have ob*ained except by personal observation. Upon returning to New York I was very kindly received by Chief Engineer Decker and Assistant Engineer Miller, and to those gentlemen I was indebted for on opportunity of inspecting many ladder arrangements, the model cf one of which Z have brought home withxae, and which can bo aeen at my office, on LaSalle street, near Washington. In eonclu6ion«lct me renew my thanks for the kindness and liberality which enabled ms to male this visit to London and elsewhere, ard let me assure you, and our citizens gen erally, that as my purpose was to be barter informed, that I might discharge my duties mote beneficially to the public, a recollection, of your kindness in this particular, and of the NUMBER 35. repeated marks of confidence on the part of the people ot this city, will urge rae to give to tte dfocliargc of my official duties all the labor and attention In my power, and to Im prove that labor by the experience and infor mation I have gained in this trip _ Tours, truly, XT.
