The Draft. The following important
circular relative to the draft has been,

Circular No. 2.
Keep un volunteering as much as possible
after the fifth (Cth) day of September, and let
it be known that volunteers will be counted
on the quotas of the present call up to the
last practicable moment before the drafted
men are accepted and seut to rendezvous.
By order of Capt. R. I. Dodge,
8th Infantry, U. K. A. Sup't.
It mu?t not be inferred from this that
the draft is or will be postponed. "We
have the assurance that the teverse will
be the case. But in most districts the
Provost Marshals are .not yet ready to
commence drafting, and it is to afford ev
ery facility to volunteering that the order
is issued. If enough volunteers come for
ward to fill the quota of the State, of
course the draft will be dispensed with :
if not, the "wheel of fate" will be set in
motion as soon as the different Provost
Marshals can get it in readiness, up to which
time volunteers will be accepted and the
Government bounty paid.

- Col. J. M. Campbell and Adj'r. W. II.
Rose, of the 54th P. V., returned home
last week, their term of pcrvice having
expired. These officers have been in ser
vice three years, and have seen much
arduous duty in keeping the Shenandoah
Valley clear of guerillas, and latterly in
the series of battles culminating in the !
late engagement near Winchester. Col.
Campbell was considered one of the ablest
officers in his department, and for the
past few months commanded a brigade.
Adj't. Rose was wounded in the thigh
during the battle of New Market, but . is
now fully recovered.
Capt. Lowman departed for Tittsburg

week, with over 150 men. . His company

looking men in this section. Capt. Rut

failed to be mustered into service, and the
greater part , have returned home. A
company is now being formed here, under
the auspices of Capt. Mackin. His rolls
number over 50 men.
There is a pretty well authenticated
report here that Geo. D. BerliD, of this
place, who was appointed by Gov. Curtin
military agent to recruit negroes for West
