THAYER, Editor. J. S. SILVERTIIORS, Associate. We copv, this morning, from a special dispatch to the Cincinnati Ga zette, a most ungenerous and ungentle" manly attack on Gen. Roseecrans by the Washington Chronicle. We have not read anything for some time that gave us so much pain or made us feel so in dignant If Gen. Roseerans is in the condition stated in the Chronicle, his misfortune should make him sacred. His great services are entitled to other treatment than that accorded him by the Chronicle, although his removal may be just Inefficiency of the Draft. In another place we print an article giving the reason for the failure of the Eastern States in the recent draft to furnish their quota of men under the various calls of the Presi dent It is well known by this time that j the draft was an entire failure, as to raising either men or money. Out of the 250,000 names drafted, the Government obtained onlv about 35,000 conscripts and substitutes, and a money represent ation, under the $300 clause, of about 20,000 more. The remaining 195,000 slipped through the bill under the vari ous exemption clauses, &c, the research es of Prof. Lieber, who was employed by the War Department, and furnished at least 100 pretexts for exemption. In deed, such a standard of health did he erect, that, were the whole male popula tion of the Northern States between the ages of 20 and 45 drafted, it is thought not over 200,000, would when measured by his rule, would be found fit for milita ry duty. The failure of the draft to raise men is charged against the $300 exemption clause. How unjustly, is manifest from the statistics we have above given. The fault lies with the War Department for adopting a standard of health to which not one man in ten in the whole com munity can reach If the object of the Government was men, why should it employ a distinguished professor to hunt np excuses for exemptions? Why not let the Examining Surgeons settle the question as to the fitness of conscripts for military service? But few of the New Englanders, who have thus slipped through the mesLes of the net, would have objected to paying their $300, and ; the Government would then have real- ized something out of the draft wit which to pay bounties to volunteers. Bu ; under Stanton's management, it got ' j neither men nor money. Jnow that the i whole thing has proved a farce in the j Eastern States, as every intelligent man : supposed it would, the law is to be amended so that it will catch those in ' the West. The people in the Western StelM won't fancy this kind of an ar- ' rangement If the Eastern States can't furnish men, there is no scarcity of money, and they should be made to bear esc share of the heat and burden of the day. All through the last summer, while the Eastern States have not had their proportion of men in the field to the extent of the number called for by the last draft, the Western States have had more than their proportion of men faith fully discharging duty as soldiers. This, it strikes us, is spurring a willing horse too severely. But what we desire to call atten tion to more particularly is, that the $300 Exemption Clause is not responsi ble for the failure to secure men. Nor is the law itself justly chargeable with the failure. The War Department alone is responsible for the deficiency. It put a construction upon the phrase "fit for military duty," totally unwar rantable. Men were exempted when they were, physically, the superiors of thousands of noble hearted volunteers who have served through the hardships and toils of many campaigns; who have endured the piercing cold of winter, the malaria of summer and the storm of battle ; and are now ready for any service their country may ask at their hands. If the sons of wealth felt that they could not possibly discharge the duties of a soldier upon the field, as little as they could ask would be the pay ment of $300 each. In that case the Government would have made something o more than a " water haul. " Had each of the 125,000, (allowing 70,000 for bona fide cases of exemption), who were set at liberty by Prof. Lieber's " one hun dred pretexts, been compelled to pay his $300, the Government would have realized the sum of $37,500,000, with which to pay bou niies and hire substi tutes. Thirty-seven and a half millions oi aouars would have placed a mfliir c n 1 1 1 1 . i-u in I. c.i i m. great j v.- ... iW ueiu. it mi have removed the necessity for a second draft As the cne now stands, the Eastern States are behind hand nearly 125,000 men. This deficiency will have to be made up in the West In other words our 125,000 gallant volunteers have been offset by 125,000 drafted men who were exempted from service by a handsome little arrangement, originating in the War Department and entirely out- side of the Conscrint law. Mr. Stanton is an ingenious cabinet officer. If, how ever, his ingenuity was . more frequently displayed in devising and executing plans for the overthrow of reliels, we would admire it the more. It seems to us just now to be employed solely in in terfering with the plans of successful general, and screening his eastern friends from sharing their proportion of , the dangers and hardships of the rebel lion. Captain Tom Williamson is making good headway with his cavalry company. He has already enlisted about sixty men, and expects to have his company full by the 8th of next month. He designs can vassing this county by townships, and give the patriotic a chance to enlist in a good (company. Vanderburgh county has, as yet, done nothing in the way of vol unteering under the recent calls. We do not think she ought to be willing to be behind other counties in this particu- lar. The county is very large, the war cannot possibly last beyond another cam- j and those who enlist now will not paign. have to endure the same endure the same amount of hardships and dangers through which the old regiments have Jiad to pass. The 8th of November is the time fixed upon by the Governor for the completion of his regiments. Vanderburgh county ought to furnish two more companies; indeed, she will have to do so. If no volunteer ing is done, the inexorable draft will make up the deficiency; and there is every probability that the $300 clause will be repealed as soon a3 Congress meets in December; this will bring con scripts up to the rack, and will occasion much distress. How much better, by iberal bounties and a little effort, to raise the quota of our county by volunteer ing !

This morning's CAronicfecontains the following double-leaded editorial: " We are in receipt of astonishing intelligence in regard to the removal of Gen. Rose erans. The whole country will be stir red at what we shall chronicle. It is ru mored that three charges are made against this late popular commander. Tl,o fieof nhnrcrc ia nroforro1 Kr I lor, o-l. , rr--""- J .

" The second charge, it is rumored, i3 made by the Government to the effect that his orders were to remain at Chatta nooga till reinforcements should arrive. The third charire, as is rumored, is to , . .. . me eiieci mat he aecni! ea to move irom Murfreesboro' in June last, when ordered to do so by the Government, as an op portunity was offered to crush Bragg, a large portion of his army having been withdrawn to succor Johnston, who was operating against Orant It th'se charges are true, it is mcst unfortunate, '' name of Roseerans was a talis- w. . c - i . rni vr - y' ui.ih in linmo se weit'ni. ine nn i ;.;i-tb make tne sweeping accusa- . t i ' tion if: piii't tne battle ot tnicamau- ga uens. itteecraasj Crittenden ana Mc Cook were arlep at Chattanooga. We learn, semi -officially, that in regard to Critteuden this statement ifl false, and nothing has warranted tho circulation of such a paragraph. The blame, it is said, AT ' . . ' . , m M corinected with the failure at Chicam.iu ga, will rest wholly upon llosecrans." In another editorial, anparently writ ten before the above, the Cironicle sava: "It will doubtless te generally assum--) ed that Gen. Roseerans' almost total ab sence from the engagement was the prin cipal reason for his being relieved of the j command, more especially as the general who bore the brunt of it has been appoint- I ed in his stead. We have reason to know j that his conduct ou that occasiqp, when J the news o!' the battle first reached here," t was severely censured by the military j authorities, and was probably the turn- j ing poiut in the decision that has been j reached, but we hazard nothing in say ing that prior to that there has been grave cause of complaint against the General. He was once before on the eve of being removed, for a failure to move to aid Grant, and make a diver- sion in his favor by attacking Bragg; and at another time was somewhat strongly remonstrated with for his delay in moving from Murfreesboro. General Roseerans has, in many things, shown himself a good officer, and his superced ure, we believe, has been very reluctant ly determined on, but neglect of orders from his superiors will unfit the best man for a miliary command." The al.me are specimens of stories the Eastern press are telling on tha sub ject 9 WX s - On the (. er hand, here is the close of an editorial in last night's New York Evening Pes': " The removal of Rose erans will fill many hearts with sadness. He has during the past year gained a high place in the esteem of our whole people, who thought with pride of the itnlomnitable resolution which won the great battle of Stone River, against such fearful odds, and who have the belief that Rosecarns is a man of pure patriot ism and a soldier, and not a politician only. It certainly would be a shameful thing if so sudden a removal of suchjin officer did not bring a pang to the pub lic. No doubt the Government is fully jnstiSed in withdrawing him from his command, and the appointment of Grant and Thomas is unexceptionable. The presumption is that sufficient reasons make the change necessary, but we shall not be guilty of the meanness of charg ing the victor of Stone River lying asleep within sound of the enemy's can non and surrounded by a flying army. " Our Washington correspendent writes that the health of Gen. Roseerans has failed of late. We know that before the last great battle he was quite ill, and have heard that he had for some months become subject to a disabling mental disease, which must have affected his of fice in the field. Whether these or some other circumstances baused his removal, we 'are satisfied that the good of the ser vice demanded it, and that is enough ; but it is not necessary to commit the meanness "of circulating disgraceful stories about the retired general, as we notice the Tribune with discreditable haste has done. " Stories about Roseerans having epi leptic fits, and being injured by the use of opium, are circulated with great per sistency; but it is admitted that these were not the cause of his removal that having been determined upon before they were known. Government officials are representing that dispatches show him to have been fairly stampeded at Chica manga The Chronicle has the following from Meade's army: Thus far the rebels have made no move of consequence. In all probability they will not. The retrograde movement of Lee has been attributed to several causes; but we are inclined to believe that the chief reason of his precipitate flight is his fear for the result. Our cavalry find no enemy in possess ion of important gaps; and it is our iin pression that Lee is making haste to his entrenchments. To this statement of the Chronicle it may be added that our army yesterday prosecuted its pursuit as far as the South side of the Rappahannock, having passed through Warrenton as long ago as last Tuesday. Of course, the foolish stories of intense excitement here, and the probable invasion of Mary land or Pennsylvania, of a battle being imminent in front of Washington, of danger to the capital, and the like, are absurd; add the whole excitement over the Eastern situation presents here an aspect rather ridiculous than otherwise. It is believed that but a single corps of the rebel army (A. P. Hill's) was the whole force in front of Meade's army, and it was from this imposing force that the Army of the Potomac was flying back to the intrenchments of Washington. Some such feeling as existed in the War Department after the battle of Chica mauga, is said to be now smouldering there concerning these movements in Virginia. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. REGULAR PACKET.
