WEDNESDAY EVENING, NOV. 22, mi. AirOTHEH COIISCItlPTIOIT. A glance at our national aCurs, gives certain evidence thaVero long another . . , . , . .. , k conscription will lx rondo. Ttia character of it is clearly foreshadowed iu the re ports of tbo Secretary of War now in preparation. And when his recbtumend ations have been adopted, as they certain ly will, wo shall feci a conscription ns merciless in its perations as any we have toon so ready to denounce in the sonthern States. . j. , ;, , , v i He substantially recommends that the conscription law bo so amended, that nei ther substitutes or commutation shall be rccoivod in any. caso, and that the draft . may be made without nolico. With such a law in force, ono may leave his homo in the morning foe the workshop, (he field, or the office, and at night find himself in the United States barracks, a soldior. The commutation clause 1 has been promptly strickon out of the laws, and it is a grave question whether the govern ment will not deal more justly with its ' poople by compelling the conscript to servo personally instead of allowing the rich man to get a substitute. If the .recom mendations of the Secretary of . War are addptod, the dictates of common human ity are thai the list of exempts should largely extend, so that, a suddon. con scription may not fall too hard upon thoso who are dependents, such as motherless children, or those of poor parents. Our first national conscription was vir tually for poor men and rich men's money Subsequently it was for poor men and rich men's substitutes.' The next should call upon the rich and favor the poor. It would be economy to take as few men as possible whose families in their absonco would have to receive relief. -The rich roan receives the greater protec tion from : government, and the burden should fall the greater upon him as well in the way of defending it, as in paying its taxes. Especially should this be so, after tho laboring classes have been call ed upon as they have. ! '.'" ' Tho law of self-protection will suggest to our readers tho propriety of, offering inducements to enlist. Should another . draft be ordered, without a change of the law, tho great amount of local bounties that will bo called for will imposo terri ble taxes..: . To be satisfied that another call will bo made, and that, too, soon, one needs but to roccoljcct that beforo the next summer's campaign opens a very large number of the troops in the field will bo discharged, as their times will then expire. ' All- the army commanders are advocating , tho re inforcement of their armies.. ;In almost every locality where 'any one connected with the war department who' thereby has an opportunity to learn the designs of the administration, upon this poiut, we see tho people acting under tho advice of theso men, arb , encouraging enlistments, preparatory to anothor conscription. : Tiik 1st Mich. Engineers & Mechan ics, Col. W. 1 Innes, commanding, were mustered out of tho United States' ser vice, at Atlanta, on the 28 th ulL, its terra of Eorvico having expired. Wo notice some of tho boys havo arrivod homo safe and sound after their thrco years hard and dangerous service. Beforo tho regi ment left Atlanta, tho Colonel was' pre sented with the snug sum of $1,400 by tho soldiers of his regiment, in token of thoir esteem for their lato commander. Tub salt well at Grand Rapids has reached the depth of 700 feet when a salt lako was struck yielding brino of an exp edient quality. Wo anticipate the Grand River Valley will, at no distant day, bo abundantly supplied with salt from the wells at Grand Rapids, to- tho great mon etary advantage of parties interested. . 0 Election la Ottawa Ccnnty. .Tbe Board of County Canvassers for this County met in this village, on Tues day last, but owing to some mistakes in tho returns they were returuod to tho sev eral towns for correction.

"' 0 Tub prospect that Ottawa County will, at an early day, bo tho possessor of a regularly endowed Collegiato Institute, is quite flattering. Our Holland Colo nists upon whoso petition an act was passed, at the last session of our State Legislature, enabling .them to legally convert their flourishing academic school, in tho village of Holland, into a College, aro manifesting a very praiseworthy libe rality and zeal in the enterprise. Already several thousands of dollars have been subscribed toward the endowment by tho citizens of Holland., Wo aro inform ed it is the intention of Revs. Phelps and Oggel, now connected with the academy, to enter soon upon a tour, tho ono east ward and tho othor westward, to solicit funds to complete tbo endowment with tho most flattering assurances of success, A College Instituto in our midst, amply endowed, will exalt the name of Ottawa County among hor sister counties it be ing the , first institution of the kind es tablished in western Michigan.

On Monday night last, Hoods entire force including Forrest's' cavalry, were in the immmcdjate neighborhood of Tuscum bia and Florence, Ala., watched by a body of troops under the command of Major General George H. Thomas,' of such strength as will render the invasion of Tennessee an impossibility,' and even the withdrawal of Hood for service else where, an operation of extreme delicacy. New York, Nov. 21. " .

The Company claims for it a decided superiority over all othor machines in uso. Hundreds . of persons in this city, who aro now using it, endorse this opinion to the fullest ex tent, and not a few who are now using other first-class", instruments, have ex: pressed a willingnoss to sell them out at half cost in order to get the " best," '.'., the inimitable " Florence."- Go and sco it,' everybody.
