Practical Workings of Conscription.
The case of Mr. Samuel L. Crocker, Jr., a member of the Suffolk Bar, and a conscript from the Third District, has been widely published by the Press and Telegraph. He presented a substitute when he was first summoned to appear before the Provost Marshal, but on refusing to comply with certain terms demanded by Captain Shaw, his substitute was not received. Mr. Crocker appealed to the authorities at Washington, who sustained the Provost Marshal. The matter then rested until last Saturday, when Mr. Crocker was arrested as a deserters, found able bodied by the examining board, and ordered into the service. He was, however allowed a furlough. The following extract from a letter, originally published in the Post, sets forth the difficulty between himself and the Provost Marshals:—
On Friday, the 24th Aug , I appeared at the office of the Provost Marshal, of the Third District, at the appointed hour for the acceptance of substitutes, having given the required notice of my intention so to do, to offer a substitute for three years military service.
The substitute presented was examined by the surgeon was pronounced entirely satisfactory. My name, age, height, &c., were then entered upon the records, and those of my substitute were also duly recorded. The requisite oaths were then administered to my substitute by the Provost Marshal, and were duly subscribed, and all that was essential to his acceptance was fully accomplished. Capt. Shaw then inquired what sum of money he was to receive, and insisted that it should be paid into his (Shaw's) hands. I replied that I had no objection to the arrangement if the man consented to it. He said he thought he should receive his money as soon as he was accepted. Capt. Shaw replied in that case he should be placed under guard until afternoon. My man, who had already served as a volunteer in the service of his country, replied that he had no intention of deserting, but that he did not care how closely he was guarded. Upon which Capt. Shaw retorted, "Very well, sir, if you can't trust the United States, the United States won't trust you. You can go away. We won't have anything to do with you."
I then said, "Captain Shaw, I have promised this man that I would pay the money into his own hands, and I know nothing in the law that authorises [sic] you to interfere with this arrangement." To which he replied in a very insolent manner, "if you have come here to raise any of your law quibbles, you are in the wrong shop, or words to that effect. "I have come here," I replied, "to discharge my duty as a citizen of the United States, and I have taken great pains and trouble to discharge it faithfully." He then ordered me to be seated, stating that he would refer my case to the Board of Enrolment. In a few moments he addressed the Board to the effect that I had presented a man who was unwilling to comply with the rules of this office, by depositing his money with the Provost Marshal, he promising to repay it on his arrival at the rendezvous.
I then briefly addressed the Board, stating that I had been at great pains to discharge my duty, by procuring for the Government a better man then myself for the required service—that in the accomplishment of this object I had no desire to save myself labor or trouble—that I had refused to bring before them men who had offered their services for the reason that I was not satisfied with their character, or with the agents that were trafficking in them—that no objection had been offered to this man, except that he insisted that his own money should be placed in his own hands, giving as his reason therefor [sic] that he had seen during his term of service delay and inconvenience resulting from tardiness in the payment of money from the
Government to the soldiers in service—that I had promised this man to pay the money into his own hands, and felt bound to carry out my agreement. The Commissioner replied, "we take no men who refuse to comply with the rules of this office." I then said, "Captain Shaw, I offer this man as my substitute; he has passed your examination, and taken and subscribed the customary oaths. I offer him here and now, without any condition, qualification or reservation whatsoever, and I demand my discharge." To which he replied, "you shan't have it; and what is more, I give you warning you will be arrested as a deserter, at the expiration of your notice, if you fail to appear in compliance to the rules of this office." I then left his office, followed by the man I had offered as my substitute.
Comment upon such proceedings is needless. Captain Shaw well knows, or if he does not, he is totaly [sic] unfit for his office, that he is not the agent of the United States to receive in its behalf money furnished for substitutes, or bind government by a promise for its repayment. His receipt binds only himself individually.

The Argus and Conscription.
From the Atlas and Argus.
One of the arguments alleged against the constitutionality of recruiting the army by Conscription, is that such a process was wholly unknown at the time of the adoption of' that instrument. Conscription is the child of the French Revolution.
The position of the Argus may be summed up in a dozen words. It denounces Conscription as the offspring of the "Higher Law" doctrine of Mr. SEWARD, and demands that it shall "die." And it does this in the face of the fact that Conscription is a Democratic hobby, that it was advocated by WASHINGTON, and MADISON, and MONROE; that it was made an issue in 1814—nearly every Democrat in Congress voting for it and every Federalist voting against it! And, in order to prop up its wretched case, it borrows its arguments from the memorial of the Hartford Convention.
The Argus, confronted by the "truths of history," endeavors to crawl out of its humiliating position by claiming that the Conscription, as originated and matured by WASHINGTON and MONROE, were different from that at present in operation! Who claims that they are identical? But the principle is the same. The question—and the only vital one—is:—Has the Government the right, under the Constitution, to compel the citizens of the several States to bear arms in its service?
WASHINGTON contended that it had. He claimed that every Government "possesses not only the right of personal service from its members; but the right to regulate the service on principles of equity for the general defence." Nor did he allow that this right was subordinated to State authority. On the contrary, in the very extract from his "plan," quoted by the Argus, he proposed that "the Executive of the United States, or the Commander-in-Chief of the militia of each State," should make the draft.
JAMES MONROE held to the same doctrine. In his exposition of his scheme of Conscription, he used these emphatic words:—
The idea that the United States cannot raise a regular army in any other mode than by accepting the voluntary service of individuals is believed to be repugnant to the uniform construction of all grants of power, and equally so to the first principles and leading objects of the Federal compact. An unqualified grant of power gives the means necessary to carry it into effect. This is an [sic] universal maxim, which admits of no exception. The Commonwealth has a right to the service of all its citizens, or rather, the citizens composing the Commonwealth have a right, collectively and individually, to the service of each other, to repel any danger which may be menaced. The manner in which the service is to he apportioned among the citizens, and rendered by them, are objects of legislation. All that is to be dreaded in such case is the abuse of power, and happily our Constitution has provided ample security against that evil.
The Democratic Congress in 1814 was of like mind. Its voice was largely in favor of Conscription. The conclusion of Peace arrested the discussion of the question, and rendered the passage of Mr. GILES' Bill (a modification of Mr. MUNROE'S plan) unnecessary: but the position of that body on the subject was unmistakable. Not only was the right of the Federal Government to enforce a Draft indirectly through the State Executive insisted upon, but an amendment to the original bill, authorising [sic] the President, "in case of neglect or refusal of the Governors of the States to execute the provisions of the law, TO CALL DIRECTLY ON THE MILITIA OFFICERS OF THE STATES TO CARRY THEM INTO EFFECT," was engrafted by the Democratic majority.
Nearly every prominent Democrat of the time occupied the same position. Mr. INGERSOLL, a staunch Democrat, from whose "History of the War" of 1812 the Argus pretend to quote, in a speech in the House of Representatives, pending the discussion of the Conscription bill, thus proposed to "override the Constitution" by the enforcement of a Draft:
We must have armies and we must have money. * * * I venture to assert that the mere enactment, by something like unanimity in this House, of a good military system with indications of acquiescence in it out of doors, would secure us a peace forthwith, without the necessity of enforcing the system. * * * I appeal to the gentlemen who are so clamorous for peace, to coalesce for an object so desirable. That system, in my opinion, is a classification of the white male population of the country for the purpose of a draft in the regular armies., You may call it by what odious, ugly name you will, [the Federalists then, as the Argus and its yoke-fellows now, endeavored to excite the passions of the ignorant by denouncing the Draft as "odious" and "tyrannical,"] Conscription, or what not, but it is the only sufficient, the only Republican, the only fair, the only equal plan for applying the physical means to the end of common military defence and protection.
Referring to the plea that the Draft was "unconstitutional," he said:—
As to the constitutionality of this measure, I refuse to argue it. I hold it to be too clear for argument. Independent of the explicit terms of the Constitution, this power [that of enforcing military service] is inherent in the nature of the Government. Its EXERCISE AND EXTENT must be referred to their regulation to a sound discretion. I adopt the sentiment of the Chairman of the Military Committee (Mr. TRBAT). that the Constitution authorizes it, and if it does not, such a Constitution is not worth having or regarding.
The Argus itself, in those days, was an earnest champion of "conscription," and supported its most prominent advocate, Mr. MONROE, for President. Indeed, our neighbor no longer ago then last summer still adhered to its time honored faith on the subject, denounced volunteering as inadequate and expensive, and called upon the Administration to enforce the Draft. On the 28th of August, 1862, it gave utterance to such patriotic words as these:—
MR. STANTON does great injustice to New York, and to the army of her sons at present mustered on the battle fields of the Union, when he attributes to the State any disposition to dispute the authority of the Federal Government to call upon her citizens for support, or any disposition on the part of her citizens to evade the duty they owe to their country. Whenever the necessities of the nation demand that a conscription shall be made, however wide in its limits, the people of New York will cheerfully submit to their full share of the burden.
Thus it will be seen that the principle of Conscription has been a cardinal point of Democratic doctrine from the organization of that party down to the past few months. It was one of the principal issues between the Democrats and Federalists in the last war. The latter, as do the Argus and its fellows now, denounced it as "tyrannical," "unconstitutional" and "odious." The Hartford Convention stigmatized it as a "deliberate, dangerous and culpable infraction of the Constitution, affecting the sovereignty of the State and the liberties of the people," A prominent "Blue Light" member of Congress declared, as do the depraved New York Express, World, News, &c., that Conscription "would not be submitted to by the people; that they ought to resist such oppression—such infringements of their rights,—and he hoped they would."
These were the words of the "peace men" of the last war. Their authors have left an unhappy memory behind them. They did their best to embarrass the Government and oppose the "wicked war" against Great Britain. But they did not succeed. The country was saved in spite of them. The "despots" they denounced became the idols of the people. President MADISON retired with honor. Mr. MONROE, his Secretary of War—the author and champion of Conscription—was elected President. The party that favored a "vigorous prosecution of the war," and stood by the honor of the country, became the dominant party and maintained its power almost unchallenged for thirty years. Will the Argus heed the lesson; or will it, following the lead of its bad passions instead of the lead of its reason, repeat the folly and share the fate of the old ...

THE NUMBER OF ENLISTMENTS IN ALBANY SINCE THE DRAFT WAS ORDERED—WHAT SHOULD BE DONE—The following is a correct transcript of the number of enlistments in the city of Albany, with the names of the organizations to which they are attached, since the 11th of last May, to an including the 24th of August, as taken from the record of the Examining Surgeon, Dr. Peter P. Staats. The whole number enlisted and credited to this city is 783, of which 101 were rejected upon a medical examination, leaving an actual credit of six hundred and thirty-seven, as follows:
13th Cavalry...... 46 8
7th Artillery....................... 146 51
15th Cavalry 1 —
1st N. Y. Artillery............. — 7
9th Artillery....................... 2 91
Corning Cavalry....... 124 19
3d Infantry (N. Y. S. V.) 43 1
49th Infantry (N. Y. S. V.) — 1
11th Artillery 84 29
1st Cavalry, — 1
16th Cavalry ...................... 3 4
Empire Cavalry........... 31 9
43d Infantry (N. Y. S. V.) ... 6 —
13th Artillery .. 99 11
3d Artillery ...... — 22
15th Artillery — 3
12th Cavalry... ........... — 22
16th Artillery 25 42
14th Artillery..................... 4 —
McClellan Cavalry 35 1
9th Cavalry — 1
9th Infantry — 2
15th Infantry . . . . . — 1
Up to November 10, of last year, the Adjutant General admits a surplus in the county of 150. Between November and May (of which we have, as yet no reliable statistics), probably at least 250 were enlisted, which should be credited to Albany. Making that estimate, the result (in the county) would be:
Surplus Nov. 10th, '62. (Adj. Gen. rep.) .. 150
Enlisted from Nov. 10 to May 11 250
Since May 11th....................................... 637
Total………………………………….. . 1037
These figures are below rather than above the truth; and it is eminently just that they should be presented to the proper department, that old Albany—which has been pre-eminently prompt in responding to every appeal upon her patriotism—may be duly credited upon the forthcoming draft.
Should Albany be credited on the draft with the 1,037 men enlisted since November last, it will require but very little exertion to raise the balance of her quota by voluntary enlistments. We don't wish to see a draft take place in the city, when it can easily be prevented by recruiting. Some attention should be paid to this important subject, and we therefore call upon Mayor Perry, who is Chairman of the Executive War Committee, to convene that body and take immediate steps in the premises. If an effort is only made, we are satisfied that Albany can get clear of the draft. Come, wake up, gentlemen of the War Committee.
The Quota of Albany.
On referring to the Report of ex-Adjutant General HILLHOUSE, we find that in November last our city was in excess of all the quotas levied upon her, two hundred and four men. From that time until June last, we have no information as to the number of volunteers raised here; but it appears, by the books of Pay master General VAN BUREN, that since the 10th of June to the 10th of August (only two months), some five hundred and twenty men were enlisted here. These, with the, excess credited Albany last Fall, will make up, within two or three hundred, our total quota under the draft that is now being enforced.
This is a matter of the greatest importance to our citizens, and the War Committee or the Common Council should set to work, without delay, to ascertain the precise number raised here during the seven months between November last and June of this year. There is no doubt but that the entire quota of the city, and more too, has been raised; and those who have had charge of the matter heretofore should see to it that the city receives full credit for what has been accomplished. Other localities are sending messengers and committees to the Adjutant General's office, to ascertain how they stand in this respect, and there is no reason why Albany, with a record so honorable, should be neglected. The Common Council having voted to pay the commutation price for every man drafted, hundreds of thousands of dollars will be saved to the treasury by securing credit for all our volunteers, and thus avoiding the draft.
Clerks are now at work at the Capitol to ascertain, as near as possible, the excess or deficiency of every town, city and county in the State, on former calls, and the local authorities are invited to communicate their claims, in this respect, to the proper Department. [Argus.
Several weeks since, we suggested some movement to ascertain how nearly our city and county had filled up their quotas. We knew that we had raised a handsome surplus on the last call, that recruiting had progressed somewhat actively since, and that a fair count would present both city and county in a favorable light. Nothing formally has been done, however, thus far; but tables are being prepared which will enable the proper authorities to judge pretty correctly what has been done.
In Albany, Rochester and Buffalo riotous demonstrations were exhibited, but they were promptly put down. There appears to have been a secret understanding throughout this State, among the sympathizers with Rebellion, that these riots should be simultaneous.
ALBANY, THURSDAY, JULY 23, 1863.
How About the Draft!
If we are interrogated once we are an hundred times daily, as to when the draft will take place in this city, and throughout the State, and being entirely ignorant of the intentions of Government with reference to the matter, our replies are not very satisfactory, we are sure.
Gov. Seymour and his friends, not only, but a large number of influential supporters of the Administration, are of the opinion that injustice has been done to this State in the matter of the quota which she is called upon to furnish under the draft. They claim that New York has furnished more than her quota under the calls for volunteers, and that this excess should be deducted from the quota to be raised by draft. They also claim that the services of the State Militia, which has been several times called out for a short term, should be allowed, and the aggregate time of such service deducted from the draft quota. Pending the settlement of these claims Gov. Seymour is urging upon the Government to postpone the draft, and he also urges that if not inconsistent with the public safety, it should be postponed until a case can be brought before the highest Court, and the constitutionality of the draft law be tested.
A Committee, consisting of Ex-Gov. Morgan, Ex-Judge Pierrepont, Saml. J. Tilden, Esq., and others, representing both political parties, proceeded to Washington on Sunday evening last to confer with the Government authorities upon the matters above stated, and to try and bring about some satisfactory arrangement, The result of their mission has not yet transpired.
Meantime Provost-Marshal Nugent, of New York, has received no instructions whatever from Washington relative to the draft one way or another. Albany Votes $300,000 to Pay Exemption.
The Common Council of Albany on Monday evening met in special session and adopted the following resolutions to pay the $300 exemption for every man drafted in that city provided the law is declared constitutional:
Resolved, That the Chamberlain of the city of Albany shall pay the sum of $300 for each person enrolled and resident in the said city who shall be drafted, to go, or furnish a substitute in accordance with the act of Congress, entitled an act for enrolling and calling out the National forces and for other purposes, provided that the said law be declared constitutional, and the sums paid for persons drafted shall not exceed $300,000.
Resolved, That the details necessary to carry out the above resolution shall be agreed upon hereafter by this Board.
Adopted. Ayes 10, noes 1—Ald. Orr.
The Statesman, leading Republican organ, says:
We congratulate the Mayor and Common Council for the good sense which they exhibited [sic] last evening in carrying out the wishes of our tax payers. They passed a resolution giving $300 to every man drafted in this city. With this he can buy a substitute or pay his commutation fee. Should he desire to go to the war, (and the most of them will do this,) they will retain the $300 as bounty money. As we gave $300 last year to two year men, there is no reason in the world why we should not give this year $300 to such men as agree to serve three years, provided the war is not crushed earlier. But we imagine it will be crushed earlier. With our victories at Vicksburg, Port Hudson and Gettysburg, there is no earthly reason why the rebellion should not be utterly wiped out in three months. Provided always, that our contractors can be kept out of the war and navy departments.
The Common Council not only acted wisely with regard to the draft, but it also exhibited great good sense by temporarily increasing our police force by adding 100 new men to the present department.
The Draft Postponed in this District.
The following Order postpones the Draft in this district for the present:
HEADQUARTERS PROVOST MARSHAL,
14TH DISTRICT, NEW YORK,
ALBANY, Sept. 19, 1863.
Public notice is hereby given, that in pursuance of order just received, the Draft for this District, which was to take place on the 21st of September inst., is postponed till further notice.
J. O. Cole,
The Draft Ordered for Monday Next.
In compliance with orders received from the Provost Marshal General, the Draft under the Enrollment Act will commence in this District on Monday next. The total number required from the District is 2,514, and from the City 1,134. The quota of the District is arrived at in the same manner as elsewhere, by taking one-fifth of the number enrolled in the first class. There are, therefore, enrolled in the city 5,670 names in that class, and the cards containing those names will be placed in the box. To the 1,134 called for is added fifty per cent. for persons rejected by reason of disability, making a total of 1,703 names to be drawn from the wheel, for the City.
Concerning credit for previous enlistments, the Argus has the following:—
If allowance were made for all the recruits raised here since last Fall we are confident that our quota would be nearly or quite made up. We will be credited, however, with those ___ who have been mustered in, since the 11th of June. Thus far Ald. Johnson and those engaged with him in ascertaining the number of this class, have been able to discover some 350. The evidence that 132 of these have been mustered in, is at Washington, and it is feared that they only will be allowed, unless prompt measures are taken by our citizens to satisfy the authorities at Washington of our full claims. The evidence that the remainder of the 350 have been mustered in, is on file at the offices of Adjutant General Sprague, Major Wallace, and of the mustering-in officer of New York. It is proposed that this evidence be placed in the hands of a Committee of two or three prominent citizens, whose duty it will be to proceed to Washington and lay it before the proper authorities.
They will also claim credit for all Albany Volunteers that may be mustered in during the present week, and ask that the evidence of the fact, when furnished the proper United States officers here, will be sufficient; for if it is required that the evidence shall be sent to Washington first, the week and the number that may be recruited within that time, will be lost. Senator Harris, Hon. Erastus Corning and Franklin Townsend, Esq., have been mentioned as such Committee, and at a meeting of a few gentlemen at the Mayor's Room Saturday evening, it was understood that these gentlemen will not decline the mission, if it shall prove that their going is essential to the procurement of the just claims of the city. We can thus, probably, make good a claim of 40_. This much may be done towards mitigating the severity of this conscription, and we trust that no time will be lost by those having the important matter in charge.
The City Provision for Drafted Men.
The resolution adopted by the Common Council on Friday evening, appropriating $200,000, was given practical effect by the proceedings at the special meeting last evening. Resolutions were adopted—12 to 5—directing the issue of city bonds to the amount named; said bonds to be issued in amounts of $20,000 each, the first to become payable in 1881, and the last in 1890. The money is to be disbursed under the direction of an Executive Committee, originally ___ as follows: Ald. McKeon, Green, Van Valkenburgh, Gurley and Fales; to which Committee, afterwards, was added the names of his Honor the Mayor and Alderman McManus.
This action would seem to close up "a vexed question." There have been differences among our citizens as to the manner of meeting certain difficulties, and there has been cause for these differences. The same liberality the city has shown from the commencement in providing means for the war, she has all along been willing to still further manifest. The last act previous to the one under consideration, was the offer by the Common Council of the liberal bounty of $50 for all volunteers in the Griswold Cavalry.
The attempt will, doubtless, be made to deceive some nervous taxpayers with the idea that the city is likely to expend the whole of the $200,000 in meeting the emergency of the draft. There is no such probability. The city is called upon for about 700 men under the present call. Facts soon to be officially ascertained and published will show that of this 700, Troy is entitled to credit for more than 400, on enlistments made up to a recent date. Not a drafted man is required to report to the Provost Marshall of this District before the 14th of next month, and meantime the city's quota will be growing less and less. It is now probable that but a very small share of the $200,000 will be required, to satisfy any claims the Government may have on Troy for men. The sum of $200, 000 was named as certain, to cover all contingencies. To appropriate the sum, and make provision for realising [sic] it, was deemed only the dictate of a wise caution. Whether much or little of it will be used, depends wholly upon future events.
THE DRAFT AND OUR QUOTA.
The probability that the draft will soon take place in this District, causes considerable anxiety as to the prospect of our city being exempt from the operation of the law, by reason of having furnished a sufficient number of volunteers to fill the quota assigned to her. A few days since we furnished to the Press and the public, a statement of the number of men enlisted in and credited to this city between the 11th day of May and the 25th of August showing that six hundred and thirty seven volunteers had been examined and passed by the surgeon, mustered into the service, and credited to our city. From previous decisions we presumed that all enlistments, subsequent to November last, would be allowed and credited on our draft quota. But a recent decision, the very latest we believe, is to the effect that we can only claim and receive credit for volunteers enlisted since the seventh day of June last. Notwithstanding we shall have credit for a large number of men, we have good reason for believing that we can establish the fact by proper and accredited authority, that we have still a sufficient number of credits to clear the city. We do not state this as a postive [sic] fact, as a very careful examination of books and papers must be made before it can be deed with certainty. Still there is every thing to warrant the belief, and we hope to be able to relieve the minds of the people, by showing that our supposition is well founded.
