LE ROY REDEEMED.—Last spring, the Democrats elected their Supervisor in Le Roy, by one majority. The office becoming vacant, a new election was held last Tuesday, and the Republican candidate is elected by a majority of 53.

Loyal League at South Byron.
MR. EDITOR.—Loyal men are moving in earnest to sustain the government, and not to be behind in the noble cause, a goodly number of the citizens of South Byron met in the Hotel Hall, in this village, on Saturday evening, May 30th, and organized the South Byron "Union League," and adopted the following preamble and resolutions, as their pledge of faith to the government:
Whereas, It is the sacred duty of every citizen to uphold and sustain by moral and physical means the government of the United States, in this time of peril, when traitors in arms and in counsel are striving to destroy the freest and most beneficient government on earth. Therefore, we do hereby, following the example of our Revolutionary Fathers, in the first battle for freedom, "Pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honors," to the holy purpose of saving our nation and putting down traitors and rebels, who are threatening the very existence of our Republic. Our motto shall be, "The Union, it must and shall be preserved." "Strike till the last armed foe expires."
The Secretary offered the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That it is the duty of every American, who has a spark of loyality [sic]  in his heart, to stand by the Government in this dark hour of his country's trials, for if the Government falls, the Union falls, and if the Union falls, then falls the last hope of human liberty throughout the world.
W. P. Burnham offered the following, which was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That we approve, and will sustain the Government in sending Vallandigham among his brother traitors.
CYRUS WALKER, President.
J. RAMBO, Secretary.

"INGENIOUS PARAPHRASE."—This is what the Democrat now styles the bogus hand bill, circulated at Le Roy and Batavia, calling a meeting to sympathize with Andrews and Vallandigham. Yesterday the thing was presented to the public as a genuine document, and doubtless many readers of the Democrat believed the call was issued by Democrats. To-day it is spoken of as an "ingenious paraphrase."
It can only be truly characterized as a stupid imposition—one that plagued its authors more than anybody else, for it was condemned by respectable Republicans when it appeared. We have no time or inclination to answer the reflections of our cotemporary upon this paper or the Conservative people of Genesee County. Both will survive its assaults we trust.

Native Wines Wanted for Hospital Purposes—To the Ladies of Le Roy.
[We cheerfully make room for the following appeal to the Ladies of Le Roy and vicinity, from our old friend Adam S. Pratt. We hope it will meet with a hearty and immediate response.]
WASHINGTON, July 23, 1863.
FRIEND THOMSON:—Permit me through the columns of the "Gazette" to speak a word in season to the people of Genesee county, and especially to Le Roy folks, in behalf of sick and wounded soldiers in hospitals.
You have done much already by liberal and timely gifts to alleviate suffering, and no doubt you are still working and will continue to work so long as there is a necessity.
A good supply of pure Native Wine is much needed and would be one of the greatest blessings to the suffering men; and it is to stimulate you to action in this matter that I now address you.
I therefore appeal to the Ladies—the mainspring in all benevolent action—to convert a portion of their Raspberries, Currants, Rhubarb, Grapes, &c., into Wine for the Hospitals. You cannot tell the benefits that will result from such a course, nor number the blessings that such a gift will call down upon the donor from many a prostrate Father, Husband, Son or Brother. The last thing I put in my satchel before leaving Le Roy, was a bottle of raspberry wine which some friend had left with Mrs. Clark to be forwarded to the sick soldiers. I took it to Armory Square Hospital, and there I found among many others, young Delemater, a boy volunteer in one of our State regiments, lying wounded, sick and weak—no appetite, longing to get home, and grateful for sympathy. I gave the wine to the matron of the ward, for his use if the doctor would allow it. Two days afterwards I met and spoke with the physician in the same ward, and these were his words: "Sir, that wine was just what the lad needed; he has been taking it, a teaspoonful every four hours since you left it; it is the only thing for days past that would lie on his stomach. His case is a critical one, but he is young and I have hopes of his recovery." That boy was faithfully attended to, regained sufficient strength to return to his home, after receiving his discharge, and it is but a few days since my friend and co-laborer in hospital work, Mr. Bryant, (who took a deep interest in the boy's spiritual as well as temporal welfare,) received a letter from him, expressing his thanks for kindness received while here, and telling of his welfare.
Messrs. G. G. Elmore and Chas. Annin donated ten gallons of fine grape wine, which has been nearly all distributed among the wards of Armory Square Hospital, where the most severely wounded of our men have been placed, as it is most convenient to the wharf where the boat landed the thousands of sufferers from the Chancellorville fight. The amount of good this liberal donation has been the means of effecting cannot be estimated.
The Ladies of Le Roy, I know, can devise ways and means to obtain a good supply of home-made wine, and forward it, if possible in kegs, boxed, to the "Christian Commission, 13 Bank street, Philadelphia,"—marking the packages "Hospital Stores."
The weather has been cool and pleasant during most of the month, with occasional down pours of rain that sounded like a shower of torpedoes. The people here are in good heart, and no excitement exists in reference to the forcoming draft, which will fell heavily on the city, so few having volunteered.

GRAND COPPERHEAD DEMONSTRATION IN GENESEE COUNTY—SYMPATHY FOR ANDREWS AND VALLANDIGHAM.—The following handbill has been circulated in Genesee county and the adjoining country with immense effect. We are glad to learn from it that the claims of that distinguished "leader of the people," John W. Andrews, upon the sympathy of "American freemen" are not to be disregarded. The wrongs of Vallandigham are to be remembered under the same auspices. It is a pity that neither of these worthies can be prevailed upon to address the meeting in person. Circumstances beyond their control render it impossible for them to attend.

UNIVERSAL EXCITEMENT AMONG THE PEOPLE—ILLEGAL ARRESTS STILL CONTINUE TO BE MADE!—AMERICANS, WILL YOU TAMELY SUBMIT?—GRAND INDIGNATION MEETING! TO BE HELD IN FRONT OF THE COURT HOUSE, IN BATAVIA, ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 30.
The loyal people, irrespective of party, will assemble in Mass Meeting at the above time and place, to adopt resolutions of condolence with that political martyr, John W. Andrews, (editor of the New York News,) who has just been illegally and unconstitutionally arrested in New York, at the bidding of the minions of despotic Republicanism, for no other offence than inciting by word and deed, an insane and unprincipled mob to the crimes of burglary, arson and murder. His martyred spirit now pines in Fort Lafayette. Americans, shall we submit to this unparallelled [sic] outrage upon our political and civil rights? The spirit of our Ohio-Canadian political martyr, Vallandigham, will be with us. His wrongs also cry aloud to us for redress. Resolutions will also be adopted and a committee appointed to wait upon President Lincoln and demand the release of Mr. Andrews in the name of Constitution and Liberty.
Eminent and eloquent speakers will be in attendance FREE TRAINS will be run from Buffalo, Rochester, Canandaigua, and intermediate stations. Also, an hourly stage line to Roanoke, East Bethany and Pavillion. Rally! rally!  our liberties are in danger!
July 17, 1863.
By order of the Committee.

THE GREAT REACTION."—At a special election in Leroy last week Abial Robertson, Republican, was elected Supervisor over M. P . Lampson, Dem., by 58 majority. The town went Democratic last spring. The Board of old Genesee is now unanimously Republican.

"Le Roy for the Union!"
So announces our Wyoming County Mirror, on the election of an Abolition Supervisor in that town. Le Roy was not for the Union last Spring, because she then elected a Democratic Supervisor by one majority! John H. Lent, who then carried the town against the Radicals for the first time within the reach of memory, is dead; Radicalism again triumphs in the election of his successor; and, we are told, "The result shows that Le Roy is for the Union and against the submissionist democracy.'' But, what does the Mirror mean by the submissionist democracy?" Plainly, the minority now (majority last spring) in Le Roy; the majority in Attica and in Warsaw!—the majority in the State of New York, and, doubtless, in the entire Free North! If this "result shows" who are "for the Union," we pity "the Union!"

The Genesee Freewill Baptist Yearly Meeting.
The following resolutions were unanimously adopted at the recent annual session of the Genesee Freewill Baptist Yearly meeting, held at Wheatville, Genesee county, which we have been requested to publish:
1. Resolved, That the President's Emancipation proclamation, of January 1, 1863, in which millions of slaves are declared to be free, meets our warmest approval, not only as a "military necessity," but as a measure of justice to the down-trodden and enslaved, an honor to the country, and alike creditable to the heart and head of Abraham Lincoln.
2. That all who desire to save the country from the corrupting power of a despotic aristocracy, proclaiming human slavery to be the corner-stone of the so-called Confederacy, should pledge themselves, with unyielding  constancy, to the support of the proclamation.
3. That war, in conjunction with the emancipation policy of the Government, has placed thousands of freedmen, made ignorant and degraded by slavery, within the reach of true religious instruction. We regard the establishment of schools among them as a movement in the right direction, and deserving of our confidence, sympathy and co-operation.
4. That we recommend to such of our friends and churches contributing moneys for the support of such schools, to forward the same to Wm. Burr, Esq., Dover, N. H., Treasurer of the Parent Anti-Slavery Society, said Society wishing to assist in supplying the schools with teachers wherever furnished with the requisite amount of funds.
5. That confidence in the ultimate success of the Government in suppressing the rebellion, is greatly strengthened by its recent recognition of colored men as soldiers; and that their heroic bravery in battle, not only at the late attack on Port Hudson, but on other occasions at the time and since the war of the Revolution, settles the question that negroes will fight.
6. That to become despondent, so as to abandon hope and acknowledge ourselves powerless to put down the rebellion, considering our resources, the loyalty of the masses, and the righteousness of our cause, would be treason to God, insulting to the memory, heroism and glorious deeds of the fathers of the Revolution, a burning disgrace to ourselves, and an unpardonable reproach to the whole civilized world.

"Then conquer we must,
When our cause it is just;
And this be our motto—
In God is our trust."

7. That our deepest and most constant gratitude is due to the brave soldiers who have been called from the endearing associations of home and the peaceful pursuits of industry, to battle for the honor, safety and perpetuity of our Government; that we deeply sympathize with those whose husbands, fathers, brothers and sons, have fallen on the field of battle; and that we will cherish the memory of thousands who have thus fallen, with profound regard, gratitude and veneration.
8. That peace without purity, is peace without justice; and that as war for justice is less terrible than peace without justice, we prefer war with all its sad sorrows and dire calamities to that kind of peace looking forward to the cessation of hostilities by the overtures of unrighteous concessions and compromises.
R. MARTIN, Moderator.
J. L. MADDEN, Clerk.
North Parma, N. Y., June 30, 1863.

THE DRAFT.
All loyal men should sustain the government in this hour of peril. The safety of the republic is above and beyond all minor questions.—The law passed by Congress, at its last session. authorizing a draft for men to aid our brave soldiers who are in the field, fighting for our liberties, for the life of this great nation of freedom and freemen, was a wise law, demanded by the exigencies of the hour, operating in common and equally in all of the loyal States, and must be executed and fulfilled. The wheels of government must and will go on; the rebellion must and will be crushed. The sides grow bright; our successes are unparalleled in the history of warfare, and now no man should falter or shrink from his great duty in putting his energies, moral and physical, life and property, into this great work of saving our country.
The man or men who oppose the execution of this wise and necessary law, so equal and just to all, are false to their Country, and to the great cause of free government. If in individual cases, the draft should operate hardly upon any man, a generous community, which has been so self-sacrificing and has poured forth its blood and treasure without stint, will again step forward and help the poor man to pay his $300 or procure a substitute for him. There are enough and more than enough, rich and poor, who are ready to lay upon the altar of their country, their lives, their all. There are enough who are ready and willing to go into the battle-field, if necessary, and fill the ranks of our brave army.
This is no time to count the cost—no time to quarrel about offices—no time to hesitate when our country is in peril, but let us all, as one man, fly to her rescue. If the draft does not bring enough men into the field, let all gird on their armour and go into the battle, resolved that the last man and the last dollar shall be sacrificed to save the Republic.
If we deserve a free government, this opposition to the draft will disappear, and all that can go, will go, whether drafted or not. Those that are drafted and can't go, without too great sacrifices, on account of their families or otherwise, must be taken care of by a noble and generous community. They will be cared for, and this Draft, when put into active operation, will prove to be the wisest law of our Government.

Capt. WELLS HENDERSHOT has kindly furnished us the following quota for the Draft in the 29th Congressional District:

The number to be drawn from this District is 1,767, to which 50 per cent. is added to make up exempts of various classes. The number asked for by the Government is about one in five of the whole number of the 1st class, which is 9,332.—The number drawn is a fraction over one in four of the first class.
The time and place of drafting has not yet been designated.

[COMMUNICATION.]
THE DRAFT.—There are persons who, knowing that the Draft will be enforced, dare not resist it themselves, but try to incite the ignorant to resist it, by professing great sympathy for those who are drafted and not able to purchase or pay for a substitute. They say that the law permitting any man to procure a substitute or pay $300 to enable the Government to procure a substitute is unjust to the man who is not able to do so. How or why is it unjust? If the law did not permit any man to purchase or pay for a substitute, that would not help the man who is not able to pay for one. He would have to go in either case, if drafted; and the hardship to him is the same, whether another man who is drafted goes himself or pays for a substitute. The hardship arises from the fact that, encouraged by their Northern friends, Southern Democrats rebelled, and thereby creates the necessity for n Draft.
The meanness of those who try to excite resistance to the Draft, is shown by the fact that in the City of New York, the very editors and politicians who excited the ignorant to oppose the draft by force, now in order to save themselves from punishment, are as loud as anybody in denouncing mobs. It is so everywhere. The basest of men are those who, in broadcloth, have prudential loyalty enough not to commit an overt act of treason themselves, who say or print everything they dare to say or print, to try to excite others to commit the crime and risk the punishment.

THE DRAFT IN BERGEN.—A correspondent at Bergen says the drafted men of that town are 48. The real number required is 32. All but three or five will pay the $300. The majority of the conscripts are young men, who will, in some instances, put up the last cent they have for the government to commute, and stay at home with the rich men, who will remain to make money while the poor are fighting the battles.

THE QUOTA FOR THE 29TH DISTRICT.—The quota of men to he furnished by draft for the service of the United States by the 29th  Congressional District—composed of the counties of Niagara, Genesee and Wyoming—is 1,767. The following is the apportionment from the several sub-districts including the 50 per cent additional: Cambridge, Niagara county, 54; Hartland and Somerset, 120; Lewiston, 64; Lockport, north of canal, 143; do. south of canal, 212; Newfane, 88; Niagara, 1244; Pendleton and Wheatland, 114; Porter, 44; Royalton, 126; Wilson, 75; Alabama, Genesee county, 58; Alexander, 48; Batavia, 127; Byron, 46; Bergen, 48; Bethany, 47; Darien, 60; Elba, 49; Le Roy, 73; Oakfield, 35; Pavilion, 46; Pembroke, 62; Stafford, 45; Attica, Wyoming county, 58; Bennington, 57; Castile, 46; China, 50; Covington, 32; Eagle, 26; Gainesville, 39; Genesee Falls, 27; Java, 63; Middlebury, 50; Grangeville, 27; Perry, 63; Pike, 38; Sheldon, 61; Warsaw, 72; Wethersiield, 35. The time and place for drafting has not been designated.

BATAVIA:
SATURDAY, AUGUST, 1, 1863.
PUBLIC MEETING.
A public meeting of the citizens of Batavia, was held on Wednesday evening, at Ellicott Hall, to take into consideration the means of raising a fund to help the drafted men to furnish a substitute, or pay their exemption fee of $300, when the following Resolution, on motion of H. U. HOWARD, was unanimously adopted:—
Resolved, That the town officers of Batavia, legally authorized to act, be requested to issue bonds in the name of the town sufficient to raise funds to pay $300 for every man drafted in the town; the sum of $300 to be paid to each drafted man who is willing to join the army; the same amount to be paid to the Government for each drafted man who chooses to remain at home, or to a substitute if he will furnish one.
On motion of H. U. Soper, the following perons [sic] were appointed to present the above Resolution to the Town Officers:—J. Haskell, John Fisher, Seth Wakeman, H. U. Soper and Wm. G. Bryan.
The Rev. J. H. Knowles stated that he was drafted from this town. Whatever
claims his country had upon him, either for his services or his property, he desired to discharge himself. He therefore requested that the $300 which might be due him under the Resolution, be given the families of persons in destitute circumstances who have gone or might go to the war.
On motion of Wm. Tyrrell, H. U. Soper was appointed a member of the War
Committee in the place of Benjamin Pringle now absent from the country.
On motion of Wm. G. Bryan, a vote of thanks was tendered H. I. Glowacki for his perseverance and untiring energy in his endeavors to have this town credited with the volunteers that had gone from Batavia into the army.
H. I. GLOWACKI, Coairman [sic].

THE ATTEMPT TO GET CREDIT FOR TOWNS IN GENESEE COUNTY.
Judge Soper, of Batavia, who was commissioned to go to Washington to obtain credit for the surplus enlistments in the towns of Batavia, Alexander and Bergen, writes the result of his effort as follows:—
After a brief discussion of the matter with Col. Fry, he stated that the excess to be ascertained by comparison of names, &c, with the rolls in Washington, would be credited, and the same number of drafted men discharged. I  prepared telegraphs to this effect, submitted the messages to him, and they were forwarded to Batavia, to the Drafting Board at Lockport, and to Albany, as approved by him. As soon as I received the list of names from Albany, I was referred to the Adjutant General's office for comparison and verification, and was there informed that the proof could not be furnished under some months. The Provost Marshal then stated that he had prepared a letter to the Governor of this State, and he furnished me with a copy; and then returned to Albany and had an interview with Gov. Seymour, who stated that he had referred the matter to a Board, to whom I was referred. I called upon the board of which Adjutant General Sprague was one, and held a long conference, the result of which was that it was impracticable to comply with the requirements of the Marshal—that they had not the Muster Rolls in the office, so as to make the necessary report.
I suggested that they must regard as authentic the action of the War Committees of the Counties, and that in this way only the difficulty could be solved. I was assured that they would immediately correspond with the Marshal and advise me of the result. * * * *
The difficulty now is, to show that we had such excess, by satisfactory proof.
Dated SARATOGA SPRINGS, July __, 186_.

THE DRAFT QUOTAS.
D. D. WATTE, ESQ.: I arrived in Washington on Monday morning, the 3d inst., and called upon Gen. Martindale, the Military Governor of Washington, who very kindly offered to go with me to the Provost Marshal General's Department, and gave me much assistance in accomplishing the object of my mission to Washington, which was to have credited to the towns of Batavia, Alexander, and Bergen, the excess of men enlisted in those towns over the quotas assigned in the call of July 2, 1862. After a brief discussion of the matter with Col. Fry, he stated that the excess to be ascertained by comparison of names, &c., with the rolls in Washington, would be credited, and the same number of drafted men would be discharged. I prepared telegraphs to this effect, submitted the messages to him, and they were forwarded to Batavia, to the Drafting Board at Lockport, and to Albany, as approved by him. As soon as I received the list of names from Albany, I was referred to the Adjutant General's office for comparison and verification, and was there informed that the proof could not be furnished under some months. The Provost Marshal then stated That he had prepared a letter to the Governor of this State, and he furnished me with a copy; and I then returned to Albany and had an interview with Gov. Seymour, who stated that he had referred the matter to a Board, to whom I was referred. I called upon the Board, of which Adjutant General Sprague was one, and held a long conference, the result of which was that it was impracticable to comply with the requirements of the Marshal—that they had not the Muster Rolls in the office, so as to make the necessary report.
I suggested that they must regard as authentic the action of the War Committees of the Counties, and that in this way only the difficulty could be solved. I was assured that they would immediately correspond with the Marshal and advise me of the result.
As the matter now stands, it is utterly impractible [sic] to do any thing which will result in the allowance of the excess to the towns. I found on examination of the muster-rolls of the 151st regiment, that the names of twenty-five persons claimed to have enlisted in that regiment from this town, did not appear on those rolls. I was also informed that there were no muster-in-rolls of the 129th—Col. PORTER'S regiment—on file in the Adjutant General's Office.
The difficulty now is, to show that we had such excess, by satisfactory proof.
Yours, &c.,
H. U. SOPER.

A Conscript Clergyman—His Vindication from Unjust Aspirations.
The following letter explains itself. Its author has been most scandalously assailed in a little Copperhead sheet published in Batavia, called the Spirit of the Times, and in the hope of terminating at once all further discussion on his own personal merits, asks the use of our columns to make a plain and brief statement of facts. The integrity and patriotism which has marked his conduct will be recognized by all loyal men:

TO THE PUBLIC.
Recent assaults upon my personal and ministerial character in the Batavia Spirit of the Times, demand at my hands, only a simple statement of facts.
1. At a meeting held in Ellicott Hall the undersigned, one of the drafted men in this district, declined to give his personal influence to exempt all the conscripts of the town of Batavia by a partisan scheme of taxation. He did not then feel that the time and place would warrant him in public discussion. He simply rose and declined to participate in the scheme. On the following day he wrote this card, which appeared in the Buffalo Christian Advocate:
At a meeting held in Batavia, July 29th, measures were taken to raise a sum by taxation, sufficient to release each drafted man who may desire exemption from active service. This plan, if universally adopted, must embarass [sic] the government in its efforts to increase the National forces. Merciful as the provisions may seem in special eases, the principle is subject to grave objections. Ranking among the honored number recently drafted, I decline receiving aid upon this principle. Loyalty to my country, and a sense of obligation to its wholesome laws require me to meet the full demands of the Conscription Act, in its spirit and letter. I cannot give my influence to any scheme, however generous in its provisions, which will shield indifferent or disloyal citizens. It is difficult to see how genuine patriotism could have dictated it.
If this scheme of taxation is perfected, I desire that the $300 at my disposal shall be applied to those families in the town, that may be suffering from the war.
2. The undersigned chose to express on the next Sabbath evening, in his own pulpit, his honest convictions on "the duty of a Christain [sic] minister to his government."
3. He appeared before the Board at Lockport and stated that he had no plea of exemption to offer; that he desired to meet the full demands of the government, and that the Board must decide as to his duty. They saw fit to exempt him for reasons which they deemed sufficient.
4. The promptings of a heart, always proud to own its loyalty, induced him to put immediately in the ranks, of his own free choice, and at his own expense, a volunteer substitute. For doing this, after a legal exemption, he deserves no special commendation. He does not lay claim to any more patriotism than should glow in the breast of every citizen. He purposed from the beginning, to do as much as this—to offer some personal sacrifice upon the altar of the country. He will now pursue his ministry as heretofore, cheered by the thought that a veteran soldier, of more than two years experience, represents him in this glorious cause. He leaves the above record for the inspection of a candid public, regretting the necessity of obtruding personal matters upon their attention.
J. H. KNOWLES,
Pastor M. E. Church,
Batavia, N. Y.

The Conscripts of Genesee.
During the past week the enrolling officers for this county have been busy notifying those who have drawn prizes in Uncle Sam's lottery, to appear before their betters at Lockport, on a stated day. Attached to the printed notice is an order of the railroads to transport the parties to their destination at the Government expense, and when at Lockport they will receive subsistance [sic] from the military authorities.
The following are the days appointed by the Marshal on which the Conscripts of this County are to appear at headquarters:—
Alabama and Alexander, Aug. 21, 1863
Batavia,                              "     22,   "
Bergen and Byron,             "     24,   "
Bethany and Darien,           "    25,   "
Elba and Le Roy,                "    26,   "
Oakfield and Pavilion,        "    27,   "
Pembroke and Stafford,      "    28,   "
Already a large number have been over and got exempted, from various causes; others, again, not being blessed with some physical ailment, are under the necessity of paying their little $300 for the privilege of staying at home.
Many are the denunciations heaped by some of the drafted men on the head of Father Abraham, and the whole black Republican Abolition crew, for passing this obnoxious, tyrannical and unjust conscription bill. When these same men were coaxed into voting this fanatical party into power, they little expected that they would fall victims to the tyranny of the god of their creation; but now the treachery of their professions stands forth, and victim after victim is demanded for the sacrifice.
We believe not a single man will enter the service under this draft from the town of Batavia; certainly no Democrat who can pay his exemption fee, will bow the knee to the American Autocrat, and we are assured that those who are in circumstances too limited to enable them also to escape, will be assisted in their hour of trouble. On the other hand, where are the Republicans who for the past two years have preached war, war, and "crush the rebellion," who now are branded with the hissing, grating appellation of "Conscript?" Is there one who now in his Country's hour of trial, will honorably step forward and enter the ranks to prove the sincerity of his doubted loyalty?—Again we ask is there one of such in the town of Batavia who will not shrink his duty under cover of the $300 exemption? We believe not one. In all cases when Republicans are drawn in the town, do they openly avow their determination to pay their money, and stay at home. In
fact so valiant and brave are they, that we learn when one of their number from Batavia, entered the Marshal's office in Lockport, to be examined, he fainted thro' fright, and it was only by the continued appliance of restoratives that he was again brought to reason. Of course after such an exhibition of his courage, the Examining Board respected his weak nerves and allowed him to be restored to his grief stricken family.
This determination of the people, not to voluntarily go into the ranks, is partially owing to the treachery and double-dealing of the gouernment [sic] in not allowing the just and proper excess of men furnished under the previous call, from the various towns. Especially does this apply to the town  of Batavia, that has an excess of some sixty men, and with the volunteers entered the service within the past month, would almost make up the number required under the draft. But all this is ignored, and thinned of young men as has been the town during the past two years, eighty four more have fallen victims to the tyrant's will.

Rev. Mr. Knowles, of Batavia--His Letters and his Patriotism.
The following communication from a respected citizen of Batavia; in reply to. Rev. Mr. Knowles of that place, we publish because the Reverend gentleman has chosen the Rochester Democrat as his medium of communication, rather than the Republican papers of his town:
Mr. EDITOR:—The Rochester Democrat and American of this date contains a letter signed as follows:
"J. H. KNOWLES,
Pastor M. E. Church, Batavia,"
The object of the letter seems to be to relieve the person signing as above from a degree of odium resting upon him, in the opinion of a large portion of the people of Batavia, by vaunting a superior patriotism which subsequent events most conclusively proved he did not possess. His letter consists of a series of paragraphs of the flatulent order of which the following is the first and a specimen:
1. At a meeting held in Ellicott Hall the undersigned, one of the drafted men in this district, declined to give his personal influence to exempt all the conscripts of the town of Batavia by a partisan scheme of taxation. He did not then feel that the time and place would warrant him in public discussion. He simply rose and declined to participate in the scheme.
Preliminary to any observations upon the merits of the Reverend gentleman's defence, let me note en passant, the luminous introduction of the "bright particular star" that presides over the department theological.
The following letter explains itself. Its author has been most scandalously assailed in a little Copperhead sheet published in Batavia, called the Spirit of the Times, and in the hope of terminating at once all further discussion on his own personal merits, asks the use of our columns to make a plain and brief statement of facts. The integrity and patriotism which has marked his conduct will be recognized by all loyal men.
You will not fail to notice the flippancy of style and most commendable disregard for truth and decency pervading every line and sentence. "Little Copperhead sheet called the Spirit of the Times." Why, nothing short of a political priest combined with a Professor of Moral Philosophy in the same individual could have excelled that. The Spirit of the Times was an organ of public opinion of State and National reputation a quarter of a century before the world was astonished by the sudden and somewhat startling birth of the Democrat and American. It had passed the tide of successful experiment when this brace of Reverends were "puking and muling in their nurses' arms." So much for the introduction.
Rev. Mr. Knowles says he declined to give his influence to a partisanscheme of taxation. He intended to produce the conviction that the scheme for taxation was partisan and attached exclusively to the Democratic party. In that sense his Rev. Brother, to whom he writes, accepted it and "encountered it as a bride and hugged it to his arms.'' "Mark now how plain a  tale shall put you down." Rev. Mr. Knowles knows that Judge Soper, the gentleman who introduced the resolution, is a leading Republican. He knows that Mr. H. Howard, the gentleman who moved the only amendment to the resolution is a Republican. He knows that Hon. Seth Wakeman took the platform and made an able argument and patriotic speech in advocacy of the resolution. He knows that Hon. Seth Wakeman is in a greater degree than any other man the leader of the Republican party in the county of Genesee. He knows that not a Democrat made a remark or offered a resolution bearing upon the subject of the meeting. He knows that the resolution was unanimously passed by one of the largest meetings, composed of all parties, ever held in the town of Batavia. He knows that the Town Board, consisting of a Republican Supervisor, four Republican Justices and a Republican Town Clerk, without a dissenting vote, ratified the action of the meeting at Ellicott Hall. He may not know that the large meeting did not give him credit for a fervor of zeal in behalf of either the "cross or the flag" that does not attach to ordinary mortals.

...perhead,"—"serve him right, d___n him," and many such that we will not
repeat.
In Batavia we notice that the Episcopal and Methodist Ministers drew prizes, and that the two bank cashiers—Messrs Cowdin and Warner, (also the cashier of the Le Roy bank) are among the lucky ones. When the list reached Batavia, an excited crowd were in readiness to bear the names of those read who were entitled to a suit of blue, and on some particular name being called it created much merriment. The "lucky dogs" felt greatly elated and had a good time generally until a late hour, discussing their future military prospects and chances when marching to the tune of Yankee Doodle or " John Brown's March."

The Democrats Urging a Resistance of the Draft!
The Prattsville News, the new organ of the Democracy in Greene County, is out in an article urging people to petition Gov. Seymour "to adopt such measures as he may deem necessary to prevent the enforcement of the Conscription Act passed by the late Congress." That delectable sheet publishes, in connection with its disgraceful appeal, the form of a petition, which it suggests should be cut out, signed, and forwarded to "His Exellency [sic]."
At a time when our soil is being invaded by the enemy—when the Government is urging every means in its power to push the War to a successful close, and when the time of very many of our brave volunteers is expiring, and more men needed in the Army to save us from an ignominious and everlasting National Defeat and Death!—what but the spirit of an  incarnate fiend could be willing to counsel the State authority to place itself in a position to thwart the purposes of the Government in raising the men necessary to save the Nation from that direful calamity?
Is it feared that a fair proportion of democrats will be compelled to go to the battle-field, having been sadly in the back-ground as volunteers?—Or are we to consider their petitioning the Governor to resist the draft as a frank and now openly avowed desire for the defeat of our Arms? It looks marvelously [sic] like both!

KINGSTON PRE....
The Enrollment and the Catskill Recorder.
Among the systematic misrepresentations of the Draft and of everything relating to it, constantly resorted to by the Copperhead press; and which was so successful in exciting the mob spirit in New York recently, is the declaration of the last Catskill Recorder, that while the number of men enrolled in this Congressional District last year was 17,743, the number is only 16,051 this year—leaving the inference that 1,692 names have been wilfully [sic] left off the rolls in order to screen certain parties from the Draft.
Now what are the facts in the case? We have been at some pains to enquire into the charge, and find as follows: That the enrollment of last year embraced persons between the ages of 18 and 45 years, as will be remembered, while that of this year only takes those between the ages of 20 and 45 years; and that the number of the former in this District (as per the returns to the Adjutant- General of the State) was 17,091 instead of 17,743 as stated by our Copperhead cotemporary, and that the number of the latter, as on file in the office of the Provost-Marshal in this village, is 18,804. If it is objected to the latter that it embraces the volunteers now in the service from the several towns, we answer so did the former and also all persons who had been in the service from the beginning, from this District.
We have been at the trouble to correct the error of our cotemporary in this matter and to set the public mind at rest upon it, but with no hope or expectation that we shall thereby silence the misrepresentations of those presses that are bent on nullifying the efforts of the Government to suppress the Rebellion, and thereby to bring about a successful and speedy termination of the war.
