MAYOR'S OFFICE,
AUBURN, July 22, 1863.
To the Citizens of Auburn:
Thursday, the 23d day of July, instant, being designated as the day for making the Draft, under the order of the President of the United States, in this city; in view of the deep interest of the occasion to our citizens, I earnestly recommend to the Inn Keepers and other places in the city where ardent spirits are sold, to close their places of business and entirely abstain from selling liquors therein, or furnishing the same to any person whomsover, from and after nine o'clock this evening, for the space of thirty-six hours. JONAS WHITE, Jr., Mayor.

The Mayor has caused to be posted through the city a handbill embodying the "act to provide for compensating parties whose property may be destroyed in consequence of mobs or riots." This law has been published throughout the country lately, and contains information that may be new to many.

MERIDIAN.—The article in the Advertiser of the 13th inst., propounding the question, "must the rebellion be finally put down by the farmers?" is right to the point, and important interests hang on the decision that shall be given in reference to it.
It is true that the spirit of patriotism and the liberal bounties offered has drawn out an army unparalled [sic] in numbers or bravery; but the large acquisition of territory to be held by military force and the thinning out our ranks by disease and the casualties of war leave the brave hearts of our noble boys in need of assistance to accomplish the great work which they have voluntarily left their friends and homes to perform.
In their behalf and for the salvation of the country our Government has adopted the only course left them by resorting to conscription. And now as you say, shall the burden be thrown on the producing class? or, still further, shall it fall on the poor only? In reply we may say the service may and future history shall record them as the defenders of our liberties, and while they may endure hardships in the struggle, far more enviable is their situation than the man whose service is far less needed at home, and who from his ability to pay the commutation tax is exonerated.
While many can readily pay the $300, others will burden themselves by loaning the money to pay the fee far more than they would to go in to assist in the final death of the rebellion, and stand side by side with the gallant soldiers that have fought so bravely and now appeal for aid. Shall they appeal in vain or shall their appeal be met with the wholesale commutation in the cities and individual payment in the rural districts? We say emphatically, No! so help me God; and as one beyond the draft we propose to be one of 100 of such a class of persons, ie, exempt from draft, to volunteer for such service as the country may require. Can there not be such a company raised in Cayuga county.
—I very much regret that by the omission of a line or two in the report of the county school convention sent last week, you rob the school in District No. 6, Ira, of Miss Frank Foot, their teacher, and place her in charge of the Meridian Union School, and also leave out of the list Miss M. A. Tinker, assisted by Miss Sarah Tinker and Miss Elma Meacham, who are unsurpassed in their efforts or success in teaching the teachers of the Meridian Union School.

MERIDIAN ITEMS.—I see there is a call published in the "State League" for a county convention of the friends and members of the State Temperance League for the purpose of organizing a county League to be held at the Central Presbyterian church at Auburn, on the 27th last., (Thursday) at 10 o'clock, A. M. That a necessity for renewed or increased effort for the suppression of the traffic and use of intoxicating drinks exists is evident to every observer, and the organization proposed is worthy of consideration. Will not the friends of temperance attend  this convention and strive together to adopt some method to save our young men from the dreadful fate of intemperance.

WORTHY OBJECT OF BENEVOLENCE.—Mr. Hiram DePew, of Geneva, an agent of the National Freedmen's Relief Association presented the subject at the Baptist church on Sunday last, and will visit other towns to solicit aid for that object. Can there be a more worthy object where as much good can be accomplished with as little means?
—The annual meeting of the Cayuga Baptist Association will hold its next session at this place on Thursday, the 3d day of Sept., commencing at 10 o'clock, A. M.
At a meeting of the citizens of the Town of Sterling, called at the house of A. A. Stinard, Sterling Centre, August 13th, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted:
Whereas, The citizens of the town of Sterling at all the previous calls of the President for troops, have liberally volunteered soldiers to defend the unity and government of their country, and
Whereas, The long continuance of the war and the numerous calls for recruits have exhausted that part of our population who are not tied at home by the care of family, and the obligations of business, so much so, that this call of men can only be filled from those having dependant families, and
Whereas, It is believed that the town of Sterling has heretofore volunteered more of her young men than many other localities, and inasmuch as the conscription law provides "that in determining the quotas of men to be furnished by each state, regard shall be paid to the number of volunteers and militia furnished by them, respectively, since the commencement of the present rebellion, and that they shall be so assigned as to equalize the number among the districts of the several States, allowing for those already furnished, and for the time of service," therefore, we
Resolve, That recognizing our duty to our country, we promise cheerfully to bear our just share of the burdens, and we shall hope that other sections do the same, and believing that on an equitable adjustment, we have already contributed by voluntary enlistment, all, or nearly all, that has been asked of us by the government, therefore, a committee of three be appointed by this meeting, of which the Supervisor shall be one, to gather a statement of the number of our volunteers, and present it with our wishes to the proper authories [sic] for credit, and for such other business as will give us a just and equitable apportionment.
Resolved, That we petition the town board to furnish liberal aid to the families of all draft ed men and volunteers under the law of last winter authorizing such assistance, and we recognize the duty of those who stay at home to assist and furnish all needy families of both drafted men and volunteers, as we would the families of valued friends who are laboring to defend our common cause and country on the battle field.
The meeting appointed as committee James McKnight, William Kevill and James Hunter.
Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be furnished to the county papers and asking them to publish the same.
CHRISTIAN VAN PATTEN, Ch'n.
GEORGE MCKNIGHT, Sec'y.

The Draft for this county was made on Saturday last, at Auburn. Many of our citizens were present, and Rev. Father McGowan occupied a seat on the platform. All agree that the proceedings were fairly conducted. A full list of the drafted men will be found in another part of this paper. We think it is a more correct copy than any that has been published, as it has been carefully compared with the official list. The draft falls heavily upon some in our village, men with dependent families and possessed of but small means, but from the disposition manifested by our citizens generally, measures will undoubtedly be taken to afford all possible relief to all such who enter the field as soldiers of the Union. Two, three, and in one instance four, have been drafted from a family—all who were liable—while other families of equal numbers have escaped entirely. But few of our business men are among the number, and only one professional man—A. M. Dean, Esq.—while most of them are laboring mechanics and farmers. Two of our printers, F. M. Baker and H. W. Knight, are on the list.

AURELIUS, July 25, 1863.
The inhabitants of the town of Aurelius are requested to meet at the house of D. S. Westover, at the Half-Acre, on Tuesday, the twenty-eighth day of this month, at four o'clock P. M., to devise means to raise money to aid conscripts.

THE DRAFT IN AUBURN—PARADE OF THE CONSCRIPTS.
From the Auburn Advertiser of Friday.
Last evening our drafted men assembled in front of the Exchange Hotel, where, after mingling with the congratulatory crowd of friends, they were formed in line, headed by the band, and initiated into the marching exercises of Uncle Sam's service. Each ward of the city was represented, its "quota" marching under a banner, of which there were five, with appropriate and spirited inscriptions, and borne proudly by their respective supporters. The draft fell quite heavily upon the good-looking men of our community, and the procession was consequently one well worth witnessing. "The boys" evinced the utmost patriotism, jollity, and good spirits generally, and the entire throng of lookers on were filled with pride and ad-...

PARADE OF THE CONSCRIPTS.—Last evening our drafted men assembled in front of the Exchange Hotel, where, after mingling with the congratulatory crowd of friends gathered together, they were formed in line headed by the band, and initiated into the marching exercises of Uncle Sam's service. Each Ward of the City was represented, its "quota" marching under a banner, of which there were live, with appropriate and spirited inscriptions, and borne proudly by their respective supporters. The draft fell quite heavily upon the good-looking men of our community, and the procession was consequently one well worth witnessing. "The boys" evinced the utmost patriotism, jollity, and good spirits generally, and the entire throng of lookers on were filled with pride and admiration at their manly bearing. As the procession marched down Genesee street, led by the fine music of the band, we noted the following inscriptions the various banners:
"FALL IN!"
Borne by Mart. V. Babcock.

"OUR GOVERNMENT, OR NO OTHER!"
John Y. Selover.

"NO BLANKS IN THIS CROWD!"
Tommy Towne.

"HO FOR DIXIE!"
Ebenezer M. Walker, Jr.

"WE ARE IN!"
Thos Peacock.

The Mayor was then called out and made a brief and frank address, giving the conscripted soldiers his warmest sympathies and assurances of aid to any extent in his power, which were received with a spirit worthy the speaker's good wishes, and after hearty cheers for the conscripts and conscription, and for "Abe Lincoln," and groans for the New York rioters, the assemblage dispersed, and quiet and order have reigned unbroken in the city.
After parading the principal streets, followed by a large crowd, the boys were again drawn up in front of the Exchange, where they made a loud requisition on Hon. T. M. Pomeroy, who filled it with a most eloquent and patriotic address, interrupted by enthusiastic applause and cheers, in which he congratulated our community on its response to every call in the emergencies that have arisen since Sumter was fired upon—emergencies which called out the 19th, the gallant 75th, the now decimated and glorious 111th, the 138th, and the 160th, who have been heard from at Port Hudson, and at other points where valor and bravery were needed.—The address was received with enthusiastic plaudits for the speaker and his sentiments.
After Mr. Pomeroy concluded, loud calls were made by the boys for "Knapp, Knapp, the man that drafted us." Capt. Knapp responded to the call in his usual happy vein of eloquence, thanking all classes for the friendly spirit evinced toward himself in his official capacity, and toward the conscription which was made necessarily to fill up the ranks of freedom. During all his efforts to discharge his duties without fear, favor or affection, he had received no treatment which a gentleman could have reason to resent. (Loud cries of "You never shall.")
The Mayor was then called out and made a brief and frank address, giving the conscripted soldiers his warmest sympathies and assurances of aid to any extent in his power, which were received in a spirit worthy of the speaker's good wishes, and after hearty cheers for the conscripts and conscription, and for "Abe Lincoln," and groans for the New York rioters, the assemblage dispersed and quiet and order have reigned unbroken in the city.
It is a matter of congratulation to all that the draft has fallen so lightly on our city, taking but few who are unable to pay the exemption fee. Aid will be rendered the families of such as are to serve.
Seven colored men were drafted in the city—most of them from the second ward.
One clothing store loses its proprietor and one salesman; another clothing store loses two of the proprietors, and several other stores one of the proprietors. The telegraph Office is called upon for its whole force. Several cripples and one deceased person were drafted, the latter having died since the enrolment was commenced.

How The Draft Works.
The Auburn Advertiser of Friday says the demonstrations in this city last evening were of a character that must have carried joy and gladness to the heart of every loyal, law abiding citizen. The men who were drafted during the day instead of showing discontent and ill temper at their fortune were busy during the afternoon in making arrangements for a grand demonstration in the evening. Handbills were distributed all through the city announcing
that the drafted men would meet at 7 1-2 o'clock p. m. in front of the Western Exchange for drill and dress parade. At the hour named the gallant corps assembled in large numbers with banners and music. After  preliminaries were arranged the regiment took up the line of march through the principal streets receiving, as they passed different points, the cheers of the citizens who were out in large numbers to witness the demonstration.
After marching through the different streets the procession was halted in front of the Western Exchange where they were addressed by Hon. T. M. Pomroy, Provost Marshal Knapp and His Honor, Mayor Waite. During the exercises here the most undounded [sic] enthusiasm prevailed. The crowd numbered at least two thousand and among them all there seemed to be no ones so jolly as the men in the ranks. Cheers and a tiger were given for "The Union," the "Old 19th," the "75th," the "111th," the "138th," the "160th," "Old Abe," "The Draft," the "Provost Marshal," "Our Representative in Congress," "Mayor White," &c.
The demonstration proved beyond a ques­tion, that let what will come, the citizens of Auburn, of all clases [sic], are determined to show themselves a law and order community.— Real estate must have gone up at least 25 per cent. in this city last evening.
Seven colored men were drafted in the city —most of them from the second ward.
One clothing store loses its proprietor and one salesman; another clothing store loses two of the proprietors, and several other stores one of the proprietors. The telegraph office is called upon for its whole force.
Of the Draft in Canandaigua, an Exchange says:
A large crowd were present, but not the slightest demonstration of opposition or re­sistance was manifested. As a matter of pre­caution, however, the authorities had a com­pany of militia from a neighboring county paraded, ‘armed and equipped as the law di­rects,' for prompt action in case their services were needed.

THE DRAFT IN AUBURN.—A dispatch from Auburn says that the conscripts in that city formed in procession and marched through the streets in great glee.
A crowd of some two thousand persons gathered in front of the Exchange Hotel, where the conscripts halted, and were addressed by Hon. T. M. Pomeroy, Provost Marshal Knapp and Mayor White. The drafted men then gave hearty cheers for the Union, Old Abe, the draft and our resent victories.

The Draft in Auburn—Great Enthusiasm of the Drafted Men.
Auburn, N. Y., July 23, 1863.
The draft for the city of Auburn and seventeen sub-districts in the county of Cayuga took place in this city to-day. The best of order was observed, and the best spirit was manifested. The drafted men of this city have a dress parade this evening, headed by a band of music, and with colors flying. The city is quiet and perfectly peaceful.

Auburn, July 23—10 P. M.
There is a crowd of two thousands persons now in front of the Exchange, where the procession of conscripts has halted. They have been addressed by Hon. T. M. Pomeroy, Provist Marshal Knapp and Mayor White. The drafted men are cheering for "the Union," "Old Abe," "the draft," our "recent victories," &c., &c. It beats any demonstrations.

THE DRAFT IN AUBURN.
Those persons who imagine that a mob can be raised to resist the draft in the rural districts as easy as it can amid the excitable elements of New York, inflamed by the speeches of WOOD and SEYMOUR, will probably find themselves seriously mistaken. In the first place, there are not so many thieves, house-breakers, bullies and desperadoes in the country as in the metropolis; and in the second place the majority of the people are disposed to obey the laws, respect the proper authorities, and are abundantly capable of taking care of the disloyal minority.
While the news of the riots in New York has been gladly hailed in Richmond as an evidence of the existence of a "peace organization," that intends through the most bloody civil war to create a diversion in favor of the rebels, the intelligence of the manner the draft is conducted in the country will cause consternation among the Confederates; and joined with our recent victories, we fully believe that by the time the drafted men are put in the field the rebels will see the utter hopelessness of contending against this fresh army drawn from the loyal States, while their own resources and men are exhausted. Our late victories are of great importance in compelling a righteous solution of the war and an honorable peace, and we are convinced that the mere fact of raising another force of 300,000 men to reinforce our gallant veterans, already outnumbering the rebels, will be enough to decide the contest. The wiser rebels will see the utter folly of longer contending against the United States, and we do not believe that any drafted man will ever see actual service, unless he should chance to be placed immediately in some of the old regiments.
A good item to send down to JEFF. DAVIS is the draft in Auburn which took place for that city and seventeen districts yesterday. The best of order was preserved.—No riotous demonstrations of any kind took place. The drafted men assembled, formed in line, and had a dress parade with music and banners. The procession of conscripts halted before the Exchange last evening, where a large assemblage congregated. Union speeches were made by Hon. T. M. POMEROY, Member of Congress for the District, Provost Marshal KNAPP and Mayor WHITE. The drafted men gave rousing cheers for the Union, for "Old Abe," for the draft, and for our recent victories. The reporter of the Associated Press says that for enthusiasm the demonstration beat any meeting had in that city for years.
This is the way to do the thing. By this mutual good feeling—this acknowledgement of the claims of our Government to the military service of some among us—we do much to discourage and dishearten the foe. There is no bloodshed, no destruction of property, no wailing widows and orphans, no disturbance of the public peace, no convulsion of society, whose order and quiet is essential to the protection of all our rights and privileges. In this state of good feeling, citizens will be found willing to lend a helping hand to those on whom the draft falls with personal hardship, and finally, there is not one man, woman or child in the community who is not better off than they would be if a riot had been created.
We believe that in nearly all of the districts of this State the draft will take place with equal order. The only possible exceptions are New York and three or four other cities which contain vicious elements. But the Government is now prepared for the emergency and every outbreak will only bring swift and sure punishment upon its aiders and abettors.
Seventeen wagon-loads of conscripts arrived from Port Byron this morning, led by a band of martial music. One hundred and thirty conscripts from Galen also came in to day, for examination.
The work of examination is proceeding rapidly under the able supervision of Capt. Knapp, our popular Provost Marshal. The examination will probably extend to about the first of September. The report that another draft is to come off immediately is of course incorrect, as the result of the first-draft must be reported before another is ordered, and the order for the second drafting must come from head-quarters. The result will be officially announced.

The Draft in Different Localities.
It is a wonder, with the disposition Gov. SYMOUR has manifested to secure impartiality in all the operations of the draft, that he does not complain that it has been enforced in some ten or twelve Districts in the State while in others it has been delayed and may yet be postponed for weeks. We should suppose
Gov. SEYMOUR would look to this matter and that he would make it the subject of complaint in a long letter to the President. Perhaps, however, he has a good reason for remaining silent on this particular subject.
The fact that the Districts in which the draft has already been enforced are Republican may have a bearing upon Gov. SEYMOUR'S action. It would not be at all surprising if he should quietly submit to the enforcement of the draft in every Republican District in the State before it is made in a single Democratic District. He might even be more magnanimous than this, and take the ground that it would not be sufficient cause for revolution if the draft was enforced only in the Republican Districts, the Democratic Districts being allowed to get off "scot free." Does any one suppose that with all Gov. SEYMOUR'S persistent professions of desiring strict impartiality in the enforcement of the draft that he would utter one word of complaint if it was made only in Republican Deistricts [sic]? If any one thinks he would grieve over any partiality of this sort he does not know the man.
But there is another feature of the policy that has thus far been pursued in enforcing the draft to which public attention is being called, and upon which comments are freely and justly made. It has become a question why the administration hesitates to proceed with the draft in Districts which are strongly Democratic. Is it because trouble is anticipated in those Districts? Has it come to be understood that the Democrats will resist the Draft when they are in sufficient numbers to overpower the Republicans? If this is not the case why has it occurred that the Republican Districts in this State and the Republican States in the Northern States are called upon to make up their quotas while Democratic Districts and States are allowed to take their own time.
The facts we have referred to, show conclusively, that the Administration has not been especially anxious to crowd Democrats into the service, and also show that the reiterated charges of Gov. SEYMOUR, that such a disposition had been manifested, have no foundation to rest upon. He and his "friends" will be compelled to take new ground and bring forward new arguments for opposing the draft. Every excuse they have offered for their course, has been effectually answered. If they continue their oppositions, they must hunt up some new clauses to quibble about.

New Arrangements for Recruiting.
The draft is expected to go into operation shortly. We see it stated that from and after the first day of May, all enlistments of volunteers will be under the
special charge and direction of the Provost Marshal General, under the rules and regulations heretofore made, which are continued in force, and such other rules of the Department as may from time to time be made. All disbursing officers and the other officers connected with the enlistment of volunteers, will report to him. Officers of regiments going out of service by reason of the expiration of their term may, with the consent of their respective Governors, re-enlist in their regiments within thirty days for a term of two years, unless sooner discharged, and upon the regiment being filled up within the thirty days aforesaid, the officers will be restored with rank as from the date of their original commissions.—This, however, will give no claim to pay for the time between mustering out and reentry into the service. The law provides no bounty for men enlisting for two years. A man, however, who enlists for three years, unless sooner discharged, is entitled to one month's pay in advance upon the mustering of his company into the service of the United States, or after he shall have been mustered into and joined a regiment already in the service, and to a bounty of one hundred dollars, twenty-five dollars of which is to paid in advance when his company is organized, muster rolls made out, and the mustering officer's certificates given thereto; or after he shall have been mustered into and joined a regiment already in the service. Men thus enlisted for three years may, at the discretion of the Governors of their respective States, be assigned to duty with the regiments enlisted for two years. A State bounty of seventy-five dollars will be given to volunteers joining new organizations. Payment of these bounties will commence about the middle of this month. Major Frederick Townsend has been detailed for this duty, with headquarters at Albany.
Following, we give the list of the names of the drafted men from this town, for the benefit of those residing at a distance. We would cheerfully have published the names of the entire county, if we only had the space. Those who were drafted have received "notice" from Provost Marshal, J. H. KNAPP, last evening, to appear at his office August 31st, allowing over a month to get prepared to meet the examination. We see that W. A. HALSEY, of Port Byron, is authorized to receive exemption money, he being Revenue Collector.

Volunteers in Cayuga and Wayne Counties—No Necessity for Drafting.
Auburn, N. Y., Wednesday, Aug. 27, 1862.
The second Cayuga and Wayne County Regiment, Col. Joseph Welling, is mustered into the service. They number 1,046 strong, healthy, sturdy volunteers.
The third and last regiment from Cayuga and Wayne Counties is rapidly filling up with volunteers. One full company has already been mustered in. The Colonel of the regiment will shortly be designated.
The third regiment will soon be in readiness to march to the field of battle.
The fall quota of Cayuga and Wayne Counties, of the 600,000 men, will be raised without the necessity of resorting to a draft.
Cayuga and Wayne Counties claim to be the banner counties of the State in raising volunteers.

The Right Way to Do It.
We are glad to learn that there is a very general determination among the drafted men in this county whose business is such as to preclude them from going into the service, to employ substitutes instead of paying the $300 exemption money to the Government. This is the right way to do it. There is a large number of veteran soldiers in this county—men who have seen service, and honorably acquitted themselves in every emergency in which they have been placed. Many of these are ready, for a suitable consideration, to return to the field of active duty. In every case where one of these veterans can be employed as a substitute it should be the especial object of the drafted man who does not intend to serve to obtain his services in preference to the services of a man who has had no experience in the field. The Government will regard with favor every effort that is made to fill up the ranks with such troops.
But in case veteran soldiers cannot be found in sufficient numbers to answer the demand for substitutes, even then it is far better that those wishing exemption should employ men who have never seen a day's service than to pay over their $300 to the Government. The Government needs troops at the present time more than it needs money. The finishing blow to the Rebellion is about to be struck, and it is desirable to make it so powerful that the monster will never again rear its head. A large army is needed to do the work. Let it then be the object of all drafted men who do not intend to serve to send a representative in the shape of a good, sturdy, muscular man, who can deal blows that will tell. When a drafted man furnishes a substitute he is not liable, for three years, to be again drafted. This fact alone should induce him to find his man if it is in the range of possibilities.

Exemptions for Physical Defect, Etc.
In regard to the claims to exemptions on the ground of physical defect, the following instructions to the examining surgeons will give the applicants an idea of what is necessary to excuse them:
PROVOST MARSHAL GENERAL'S BUREAU.
I. The duty of inspecting drafted men and of determining whether they are fit or unfit for the military service of the country, requires the utmost impartiality, skill and circumspection on the part of the enrolling surgeon and board of en­rollment, for upon the manner in which this duty is performed will depend in a great degree the efficiency of the army.
II. In the examination of drafted men, the examining surgeons will bear in mind that the object of the government is to secure the services of men who are effective, able-bodied, sober, and free from disqualifying diseases.
III. The examining surgeon will also remember that the object of the drafted men in claiming exemption may be to escape from the service by pretended, simulated or fictitious disease, or by exaggerating or aggravating those that really exist, and that the design of substitutes frequently is to conceal disqualifying infirmities.
IV. The examination of a drafted man by the examining surgeon is to be conducted in the day-time, in the presence of the board of enrollment, and in a room well lighted and sufficiently large for the drafted man to walk about and exercise his limbs, which he must be required to do briskly. The man is to be examined stripped. The principal points to be ascertained are as follows:
1. Whether his limbs are well formed and sufficiently muscular; whether they are either ulcerated or extensively cicatrized; whether he has free and perfect motion of all his joints, and whether there are no varicose veins, tumors, wounds, fractures, dislocations or sprains that would impede his marching, or prevent continuous muscular exertion.
2. Whether the thumbs and fingers are complete in number, are well-formed, and whether their motions are unimpaired.
3. Whether the feet are sufficiently arched to prevent the tuberosity of the scaphoid bone from touching the ground; whether the toes are complete in number, do not overlap, are not joined together, and whether the great toes are free from bunions.
4. Whether he has any inveterate and extensive disease of the skin.
5. Whether he is sufficiently intelligent, is not subject to convulsions, and whether he has received any contusion or wound of the head that may impair his faculties.
6. Whether his hearing, vision and speech are good, and whether the eye and its appendages are free from disqualifying diseases.
7. Whether he has a sufficient number of teeth to masticate his food properly and to tear his cartridge quickly and with ease. The cartridge is torn with the incisor, canine or bicusfied teeth.
8. Whether his chest is ample and well formed, in due proportion to hits height and with power of full expansion.
9. Whether there is any structural or serious functional disease of the heart.
10. Whether the abdomen is well formed and not too protuberant; whether neither the liver nor spleen are considerably enlarged, and whether the rectum and anus are free from disqualifying diseases.
11. Whether the spermatic cords and testes are free from diseases which would impair his efficiency; whether the testes are within the scrotum; whether he has any rupture.
12. Whether there is any organic disease of the kidneys or bladder or permanent stricture of the urethra.
12. Whether his physical development is good and constitution neither
naturally feeble or impaired by disease, habitual in­temperance nor solitary vice; whether he is free from phthisic, scrofula, and constitutional syphilis; whether he is epileptic, imbecile or insane.

GREAT VALLEY, August 8. 1863.
WILLIAM A. MELOY, Esq.—Dear Sir; —In compliance with the "Freeman's" request of July 23d, I cheerfully transmit to you the following statistics and information.
Number furnished for two Years' Reg't, 16 No. do. bet'n June 1, '61 and July 1, '62, 38 No. do. do July 1, '62 and July 1, '63, 47 Total, —101
In the following Regiments: 37th N. Y. Vols. 16; 64th do. 4; 105th do. 16; 154th do. 40; 3d Excelsior do. 10. The balance are distributed in the 5th, 6th and 9th Reg'ts N. Y. Cavalry, and in the 85th and several other Regiments.
Classified politically, there were 26 Democrats and 75 Republicans.
This town has paid about $60 for the support of families of Volunteers. A fund of $250, was raised for the purpose—but so well have the volunteers cared for their families that only about $60 have ever been called for.  $261.50 was paid for bounties to volunteers.
Notwithstanding we have furnished such a number of volunteers, our business interests are well cared for. Last year and so far this year, farmers never have produced more, and (how I can't tell,) they have seldom secured their crops in better order or in better season, and with little or no extra expense, (we all work a little harder,) and seldom have we found a __me that we could pay debts easier. (An important item for Great Valley.)
We have now and then a Copperhead that cries "hard times, labor scarce, and whiskey dear," &c., &c., at the same time they bewail arbitrary arrests—(Rogues always do—honest men have no fears of being arrested.) Then again, Seymour's revolution commenced in New York city has proved a failure, (they being better at voting than fighting,) and some of them talk of going to Canada. They used to talk of going to Dixie, but they don't relish Jeff's Draft! Then again, their "staff of life" (whiskey,) is cheaper in Canada!
In haste, yours, &c., ARUNAH WARD.

NAPOLI, August 8, 1863.
W. A. MELOY, Esq.—Sir:—I herewith give you a statement of Volunteers raised in the town of Napoli, County of Cattaraugus, between the 1st day of June, 1861, and the 1st day of July, 1862, were: 36 No. of Vols. raised in said town between the 1st day of July, 1862, and the 1st day of July, 1863, were: 34 Total, —70
Of which the 64th Reg't N. Y. S. Vols. in Co. B, had 22; Co. F, 6; Co. C, 1;
154th Reg't Co. H, 14; Co. A, 3; 37th Reg't, Co. H. 1; 2d Excelsior, Co. H,
1; 5th Cavalry, Co. E, 1; 9th Cavalry, Co. E, 19; 4th Reg't, Co. not known, 1; Regiment not known, 1:—Total, 70
The amount of money paid to Vols. as Bounty was $1,323.00, and about $50 raised by subscription, for the families of Volunteers.
The farming interests of the town have not been sensibly effected, except the price of labor has advanced some 25 per cent.
One fact worthy of note is, that out of the seventy men sent from this town, eleven have died from some disease, while but two have perished at the hands of the enemy, showing that the fatigues and exposures of camp life  are as much to be feared, as the bullets of the enemy.
Respectfully yours, ORRIS MARSH.

Responses to Questions Propounded.
OTTO, Augusts, 1863.
WM. A. MELOY, Esq.—Dear Sir:—After some delay from sickness, I am happy to be able to give you the following report from the town of Otto, as requested in the Freeman of the 23d July:
No. of Volunteers raised in the town of Otto, Cattaraugus county, between June 1st, 1861, and July 1, 1862, for three years, was 43
July 1, 1862, for two years                                              4
No. of vols. raised between July 1st, 1862, and July 1st, 1863, for three years, was                                                                     35
Total                                                                             82
Of whom 64 Reg't N. Y. V. Co. C has— 40
   “      “ 154     "          "       "      B  "       12
   “      “ 137     "          "       "                     4
   “      “   85     "          "       "                     1
   “      “ 100     "          "       "                     1
   “      “   50     "          "       "                     6
   “      “   44     "          "  Ellsworth,           1
Buffalo Battery,                                          6
10th Cavalry,                                              8
9th        "                                                     1
Unknown,                                                   2
Total,                                                     —82
Money paid for relief of families,       $928 50
Bounty to Volunteers,                         3820
Total                                                 $4,748 .50
Of which town bounty of $50 each to 12 vols. in 154th Reg't in August, 1862, $600, and $140 each to 23 vols. on the call in November, 1862, 3220.
Total, $3820
The commercial part of the business of the town has decreased twenty-five per cent, partly from advance in goods, and a desire to save their money for the expense of the war.
Labor in the agricultural districts has advanced about 25 per cent., owing to the scarcity of laborers.
And well may the citizens of Otto make their report of the manner they have responded to their country's call—for the amount they have cheerfully donated. When we consider that Otto is one of the smallest towns in the County—with less than 250 voters—and raised, in 1861 nearly all of Co. C, 64th Reg't N. Y. V., and has furnished her quotas for every call since the outbreak of the rebellion, we are proud to be numbered among her citizens. So prompt have they been to the word, that on the call of Nov. last, in less than twenty-four hours after the reception of the President's proclamation, a meeting of the citizens was called, and $3,220 was raised by voluntary subscription, as a Bounty fund, with cheer after cheer for the Union!
If we are allowed the surplus of time in the call for two year's men, we are seventeen ahead of our quota, as our Volunteers were for three years. Still, Otto will most cheerfully respond to any demands of the Government for the putting down of the Slave-holder's rebellion.
I am, very respectfully yours,
W. E. HUNT.

MANSFIELD, August 4, 1833.
W. A. MELOY, Esq.—Sir:—With pleasure respond to your call for information respecting Volunteer Soldiers from the town of Mansfield.
1st. Whole number of volunteers from Mansfield, is - - - 58
2d. For two years Regiment,                                             - 6
3d. Between July, '61 and July, '62,                                   31
4th. Between July, '62, and July '63, 21                         —58
Of this number, 6 volunteered in the 37th Reg't, 12 in the 64th Reg't, 15 in the 9th Cavalry, 1 in the 85 Reg't, 1 in the 105th Reg't, 2 No. of Reg't not known, and 21 in the 154th Regiment.
But a small amount has been raised for the relief of families of Volunteers. What has been done for them is by private donation.
Paid for Bounties to volunteers $1139.10, about $50 per head for the 21 who enlisted in the 154th Regiment.
The agricultural interest has not been materially affected by the war. There is quite a scarcity of laborers, and prices for labor higher. Prices for produce is also higher. I think the aggregate valuation of personal and real estate has advanced in this town since the outbreak of the Rebellion.
Yours truly, J. M. SMITH.

A very large audience assembled at the Court House on Friday evening last to listen to the Rev. HIRAM EDDY, with whose long imprisonment at the South our readers are already familiar.—His vivid sketches of Southern life and character, his account of the sufferings and deprivations of himself and companions, his denunciations of the system and evils of Slavery, and his eloquent vindication of the Governments in its efforts to crush the Rebellion, all combined to make one of the most thrillingly interesting addresses to which we ever had the pleasure of listening. Mr. EDDY is a giant both in intellect and stature, and as an orator has but few equals in the country.
