The just theory regarding “strikes” of!
employees is r.r«y simple one. Strike if you j
please, “foryonr altars and your fires,” bnt J
he careful who yon hit. Knock off work,
.yourself, when yon like, and enjoy your con
stitutional privilege in such respect, but do
not' carry it to the unwarranted extent of in
sisting that others shall not work, and the
place yon vacate shall not he filled. This is
to become disorderly and dangerous, and the
law has abundant penalties in store for all
such diseased relations between employers
and their employees. There Is no class or
sphere of enterprises in whose harmonious
workings the public are more Interested than
our r.iliroade. The transportation of passen
gers, freight and mails may be varied and
modified from within, but any violent agen
cy from without is not to he tolerated.
The,Qld_ Illinois regiments appear to be
most all re-enlisting as veterans, and many
arc homeward bound. The 46th, CoL Dorn*
bltser, reported from Cairo yesterday by tele
graph to Adj. Gen. Fuller, and were ordered
by him to proceed direct to Freeport, where
they will rendezvous.
The S9lb, Tates Phalanx, CoL Osborne,
also reported by letter yesterday, from Hilton
- Bead, that they would leave for Illinois in a
few days. To meet these numerous demands
for quarters, Adjt. Gen. Fuller left for
Chicago last night to -complete the organiza
tion of the Ifith'Hlinols cavalry at Chicago,
nnd the 17th cavalry at St. Charles, so that
they may soon* he ont of the way. After
•conferring with Capt Potter, V. S. Quarter
master, he will proceed to Geneva, Aurora,
Freeport, Dixon and other places, and make
arrangements for the accommodation of
these veteran regiments.
The policy adopted is a good one of allow
ing these regiments to rendezvous, when pos
sible, in the vicinity where they were recruit
ed. We understand additional barracks will be
immediately ordered by General Fuller,* at
Wright’s Grove, Chicago, for the regiment
which V ill he ordered here.

, In the earlier days of recruiting the machinery
wns far less complicated than at present. Then it
needed the subscription of the muster toll only
and the final mnster-in by the proper officer to
transfer the raw recruit Into the finished soldier.
There were no Provost Marshals who asked
troublesome questions, no Governmental doctor
to cause the candidate for military honors to dis
robe and subject in purit naturaitou* to profes
sional inspection, no County War Fund Commit
tees to haggle over the payment ol indifferent
bounties—everything was conducted on free and
•easy principles. The complicated machinery neces
sary now to enlists regiment Is wonderful. Most
.singular and oftentimes impertinent questions are
.asked, end some people are often put to great
pains to answer them truly, and yet in such terms
as will secure their bounty. The payment of pre
miums for enlistments has caused to spring up in'
•our mldrt a class of enlistment brokers, well dress
ed, oily-tongned young men, abounding In patri
otic zeal and love for, the almighty dollar. They
buttonhole cadi stranger whom they encounter In
the vicinity of recruiting offices who looks as if
Jic might desire to enlist, and npoa some plausible
pretext or other indace him to believe that they
alone arc able to present him with a reasonable
prospect of passing inspection. These men are
often eacceeeinl in obtaining presentable candi
dates, and are doing a thriving business. Tester
day one of them secured seven certificates, worth
one hundred and live dollars—a reasonable com
pensation for one day's work, and one day's exhi
bition of zealous patriotism.
* Yesterday onr reporter spent the day amonjlbo
various recruiting offices, and the result of bis la
bors, given below, will reveal some "remarkable
facts. "We are able to present the nationality of
recruits mustered in by the Provost Marshal, but
the office of Capt. Pomeroy, the Government mas
tering officer, tree deficient In this species ofinfor
mstion. Enough data have, however, been obtained
to dispose of the claim made in behalf of onr Irish
fellow citizens, that they are largely in advance of
all other nationalities in the number of enlistment?.
The figures we give are those up to the close of
business yesterday. The total number of musters
by the Pfovost Marshal is 727,' distributed among
the various regiments of the State as follows:

From the foregoing exhibit the foundation of
the claim that the Irish are largely in excess of the
Germans in enlistments can be readily seen.
The former occupations or the recruits are al
most as various and as numerous as the number
enlisted. It will be seen that the greater number
are obtained from fanners and laborers, and the
least from “business men,™ chandlers, book-keep
ers, Jewelers, engravers, lawyers, draymen, fire
men, bill posters, nailers, soap makers, plumbers,
barbers, miners, millwrights, druggists, surgeons,

In addition to these there should be counted in
the two hundred and fifty enlistments in the 17th
Cavalrv, now in camp at St. Charles, which were
mado here and will be counted upon our quota,
and they reach the respectable figure of fifteen
hundred and it should bo remember
ed, however, that not all these will be credited to
Cook county. Probably one hundred and fifty trill
bo passed to the credit of other counties. Upon
these latter, of course, no bounties will be paid by
the City and Ccn.nty War Fond Committees.
The statistics which follow will show more
dearly the nnmbcr which will bo credited npon the
quota of tins county.
These bodies had, up to last evening, paid ten
hundred and sixty-two bo on tics, distributed

In addition to Ibis amount, the city pays a boun
ty of seventy-five dollars to each enlisted man who
resides within the corporate limits and counts on
the quota. The sum thus paid is $72,575 or a total
of paid to recruits alone from Cook coun
ty under the iste call of the President. If we add
to the ten hundred and sisty-two recruits tints
paid, the two hundred and fifty at St Charles, we
shall have thirteen hundred and twelve, which is
probably about the number that will be credited to
Cook county, up to the evening of the 20th.

Wo have at different times adverted to the
claim mode somewhat portonadoosly In certain
ocarters that the Irish constitute the bulk of our
fighting population. From the above It will be
seen that the proportion of Irish recruits as com
pared with those ot native birth is as one to two
ai d a half nearly—the proportion of Germane as
one to one and a half. The disparity ia more
clannewben we consider that the Irish cletfent
in point of numbers is at least one third larger
