Erie County, New York
Civil War Newspapers:
The draft and Conscription


PROVOST MARSHALS—Gen. G. A. Scroggs has been appointed, by the President, Provost Marshal of the 30th Congressional District, (embracing the county of Erie) and has been ordered to report for duty, and to establish his headquarters in Buffalo.
—Mr. Joseph P. Richardson, of New Hartford, has received the appointment of Provost Marshal for the twenty-fist (Oneida) District, with the rank of Captain of Cavalry. His headquarters will be in Utica.
— The Auburn Advertiser announces that J. N. Knapp, of that city, has been appointend [sic] Provost Marshal for that District, comprising the counties of Cayuga and Wayne.

The Conscription.
The work of drafting men in this State to fill the National quota of 300,000, has begun, and is proceeding in various portion of it. At present there are but few signs of hostility to the draft in this State, and those are confined to newspapers, whose sympathies are manifestly more with the Rebellion than with the government. The New York World leads off by characterizing it as "a mysterious draft," and likens it to such as "is common in Russia and Austria, but is quite new in this country." Then, to inflame the passions of the cowardly and disloyal, and afford them occasion for inaugurating open hostility to the draft—it says—"So far we have no assurance that it is to be an equal conscription." Then again its base insinutions [sic] run off in this wise: "In the absence of any official announcement by the government of the number of men it requires, how do we know but what the secret instructions of the Provost Marshals are to conscript, heavily in the Democratic Districts, and lightly in the Republican Districts."
What baseness must possess a mind that would conceive such an idea, and how much more base must it be when it gives utterance, to it, to poison and inflame the popular feeling against the government. The draft is as fair as any lot can be—and will be perfected under the strict principles of evenhanded justice. Republicans, Abolitionists, War Democrats and Copperheads, will enjoy an equal chance under the turn of the wheel, to enter the ranks of their country, and we hear none but Copperheads whining at the prospect of being drafted into the National service.
It is refreshing to see the Courier take a more manly position on this question than that occupied by the World. It says that the draft "will be conducted fairly and above board at the Provost Marshall's office." This being so, there will be no excuse for the man who may undertake to resist the draft. He acts upon his own responsibility and under motives of "pure cussedness."

POSTSCRIPT.—Since the above was written the first harvest of the sowing of the N. Y. World, Express, FERNANDO WOOD & Co., has been gathered in the city of New York. A mob, incited by those influences, has broken upon the city with a demoniac fury which involves the destruction of property if not of life. At the present writing the telegraphic communication with that city, is broken, so far as we can learn at all points, and hence we are without information as to the extent and destructiveness of the mob which ruled hour when last heard from. This is but the legitimate consequence of the teaching of such presses and men as we have named, and until the majesty of the law, either of statute or of the forces, subdues this spirit and subjects it to a more benign power, all the rights of person and property will tremble in the balance. Mob law is the ruling spirit of Copperheadism, and it seeks vent, whenever and wherever it can strike at the Government or its supporters or defenders. It is time now for the true men of the country to decide the question, whether or not we are capable of self-government under our institutions. This issue must be met boldly and promptly, and with a power which will hereafter command respect. Every friend of Government has a duty to perform in this crisis.

The Common Council and the Draft.
A special meeting of the Common Council has been called for this evening to consider the subject of the draft. It is expected that a imposition will be made to raise a fund by tax upon the city to relieve the poor men who may be drafted. We are not advised what action is contemplated, but it is presumed that the object of the meeting is to afford relief to those upon whom the draft may be oppressive.
Such a meeting is timely and proper. There is no reason to fear a disturbance of the peace in this city, or any of that disregard for law which has disgraced other cities. Still without some action like that suggested there would be cause for much of that dissatisfaction which was the origin of disturbance elsewhere. If the Common Council of this city act promptly with a determination to relieve the poor from the suffering which the draft may cause, it will be sustained by all liberal minded citizens, and secure the confidence and gratitude of those who are thus to be benefited. Let the Alderman act discreetly in this matter and secure the end desired—relief for those who will be really oppressed by the draft, and they may rely upon the support of all fair minded citizens, and Rochester will maintain its good name as a city of law abiding, people, while sister cities will be convulsed and disgraced by outrages upon persons and property.

The Draft.
The draft has been the absorbing and universal topic of conversation about town for the past few days, and numerous have been the rumors and speculations current on the subject. Some authorities had it on Saturday that the conscription was to begin, sure, on Monday.—Others were confident that it was going on even then in the shady recesses of the Provost-Marshal's office. We are able to set the minds of our readers at rest to some extent, although unable, on account of an order from the War Department, to give full particulars in advance of the event itself. The Draft, then, has not begun yet, nor will it begin to-day, probably not even to-morrow, so that conscripts in anticipation may yet breathe a few breaths of free air. The order to proceed with the draft in this county as speedily as possible has, however, been received, and the delay is simply owing to the non-completion of some details. When it begins there will be no secrecy about the operation. It will be conducted fairly and above board at the Provost Marshal's office, Granite Block. Like any other game of chance, it will be a very interesting and perhaps even an exciting thing for spectators.
The number to be drafted in the county or  even in the State has not been officially announced, but from the quota required elsewhere, we judge that the State will be required to furnish about 70,000; the county between 2,000 and 2,500. These will be drawn from what is known as the first class—that is unmarried men from 20 to 45 years of age, and married men from 20 to 35. Fifty per cent. additional will be drafted to allow margin for those obtaining exemption through disability or other sufficient cause.—Thus, about 3,000 or 3,500 will be the number "broken on the wheel " in this county.
The disposition to be made of drafted men has not been made public. They are probably designed to fill up old regiments. Captain Tidball we hear is to take charge of those in this district. Lieut. M. Kay advertises for subsistence [sic] for the conscripts. Provost Marshal Scroggs publishes an advertisement elsewhere which will be of use to those claiming exemption.

ARRIVAL OF GEN. DOUBLEDAY.—Maj. Gen. Abner Doubleday, whose appointment to the command of the depot of the drafted men for this district we mentioned several days since, arrived in the city, accompanied by his wife and staff, yesterday, and took quarters at the American Hotel. Lieuts. Lee and Martin constitute his staff.
We learn that Gen. Doubleday was waited upon by persons representing one of the trades unions, last evening, who informed him that in case the process of drafting could be witnessed by a committee of the working men, all would be satisfactory, and that no disturbance would follow. The General informed his visitors that there was no objection to the course proposed; the conscription would be conducted openly and fairly, and any who chose to witness it could do so.
The selection of Gen. Doubleday for this position is a very judicious one. He is an officer who has served with distinction, and is in every way qualified to discharge the duties. He commanded the Division in which the 21st regiment served in the battles of Antietam and the second Bull Run.

Wednesday Evening, July 15, 1863.
The Draft in Erie County.
We are informed by Provost-Marshal Scroggs, that he will be unable to perfect his papers for several days to come, and that meanwhile the draft will necessarily be postponed.
The Marshal's office has been removed to the State Arsenal, on Batavia street, where all persons having business with him may find him during usual business hours.
Notice will be given of the time and place of making the draft.

Drafting in Buffalo.
We were in many parts of the city on Wednesday the first day of the drating [sic] in Buffalo, and were much gratified at the general quiet and order prevailing everywhere. Not the slightest indication of riot presented itself at any point. There was clearly indicated in every group, upon the corners and at public places, a spirit of quiet submission to the mandate of the General Government. In the most reckless and abandoned resorts not the slightest show of insubordination was manifested.

The drafting was conducted at Fort Porter in a fair and public manner. In the grounds of Camp Morgan were perhaps 1,000 soldiers, including about 300 from Gen. Rosecran's army. A half hour's conversation with these heroes was very instructive and profitable.—We sat amid a group of a dozen or two several of whom were very talkative and frank in their expression of sentiment. It was interesting to hear them speak of "Rosy," as they termed their favorite General, in terms of such universal esteem. They say he is the "commonest fellow" in the world; associating with the "boys," freely when not in active field duties. They express the assurance that the "western, boys" would rush through any danger, however imminent at the bidding of "Rosy." But the most marked feature of their conversation, was their bitter hate for "northern copperhead traitors." They declared it would give them greater pleasure to shoot one of these, than "Jeff. Davis" himself. This feeling is very general amid all soldiers.
We saw the result of the drawing in three wards, and noticed several friends among the lucky ones. N. G. Benedict our successor in Public School No. 32, drew a prize.—Another teacher in the same ward was elected. "Uncle Samuel" may depend that these "conscripts'' will do the honorable thing. The Courier is almost half indignant that the fair fame of Buffalo has been thus misrepresented, by intimating that there was any danger of riot, and making ample preparations for any emergency, however great. Has the Courier forgotton [sic] how the fair city of Buffalo was disgraced a few weeks since by a murderous riot? Has this rowdy element disappeared? It is all in Buffalo, but it is held in most complete and beautiful subservience by the intelligence and strong arm of the people. Thus can our people ever do. The intelligence and foresight of the American people are competent to maintain law and order.

AN INDIANA REGIMENT FOR BUFFALO.—Last evening the 32d Indiana Regiment, consisting of 350 men, passed over the New York and Erie Railway, en route for Buffalo, to remain in that city during the draft. This regiment was ordered from Rosecrans' army, about three weeks since, for service in New York. Not being needed any longer in that city, they have been transferred to Buffalo.

THE DRAFT.—Notice is hereby given to parties interested in the impending draft, that they can secure the means to provide for their exemption under the "Conscription Act" now being enforced, by availing themselves of the benefits offered by the "North America Life Insurance Company of New York," who are issuing "Special War Permits," at a cost of $100, with life policies,—at table rates. Parties who may avail themselves of this method, if drafted, by surrendering the special war permit to the company, can realize $300 for it, thus enabling the party to commute with the Government or furnish a substitute, as they may elect. Parties intending to avail themselves of this method, must do so before the draft occurs in the district in which they live. For further particulars, call at the office of the company, over the "Old Post Office." an5t11                         H. J. BROWN, Gen'l Agent.

The Draft.
It has already been announced the Draft for the County of Erie will commence in this city, at Fort Porter, at 10 o'clock this morning. The question who is to be called upon to assist in dealing the death blow to the already reeling rebellion will be decided publicly, and in spite of all that disloyal cowards have said or may say, in the fairest manner.
The following are the sub-districts interested in the turning of the wheel to-day, with the quotas required from each:
                        Sub-District. Quota.
1st Ward             1st.    160
     "                      2d                    76
    2d "              3d               296
    3d "             4th               214
The Provost Marshal's guard at the Fort, was strengthened last evening by the arrival of 274 troops of the invalid Corps, from Elmira, under command of Major G. S. Jennings, formerly Lieut. Colonel of the 26th Regiment, N. Y. Vol. The names of the other officers are as follows:
Adjutant Frank D. Garrety, formerly of the 15th Kentucky Vols.
Co. A.—Capt. H. Yoho; Lieut. Bowers.
Co. B.—Capt. H. H. Read.
Co. C.—Capt. Thompson; Lieut. Rowe.
Co. D.—Capt. Culver; Lieut. Dart.
The 65th and 74th Regiments are under orders from the Mayor for duty, and some three thousand of our citizens have been summoned by Sheriff Best, to appear at the Court House this morning, to act as a
posse committatus during the draft.
The most ample preparations have been made to secure peace and good order, but it is to be hoped, for the good name of our city, that nothing will occur to render military or civil interference necessary.
For the public information we subjoin the following opinions in regard to exemptions were promulgated by Col. Joseph Holt, Judge Advocate General of the army, Aug. 1st.
The only son of aged or infirm parent or parents is not exempt unless his parent or parents are dependent on his labor for his support. If he is in a condition to support, and does support them without his personal labor for that purpose, he is subject to draft because he is in condition to perform military service without depriving his parents of the support the law designs to secure them. The parents need not be wholly dependent on the labor of their son for support. If they are so dependent for the principal part of their support the right to exemption arises.
In the case of a widow having four sons, three of whom are already in the military service, the fourth is exempt, provided his mother is dependent on his labor for support.
In the case of a widow having two sons, one of whom is already in the military service, and the other has been drafted, the latter is exempt, as the only son liable to military duty in the sense of the act.
In the case of aged or infirm parents having two or more sons subject to military duty, election of the son to be exempted must be made before the draft, and his name should not then appear in the draft-box. If one of only two sons of such parents is already in the military service, the other is exempt, provided his parents are dependent on his labor for their support.
Persons having conscientious scruples in regard to bearing arms are not on that account exempt. They are not found in the list of exempted classes, and the act expressly declares that no persons except those enumerated in the list shall be exempt. The Society of Friends and others entertaining similar sentiments, if drafted, may find relief from their scruples in the employment of substitutes, or in the payment of the $300.
The children of an insane mother, who may, at any time, recover her reason, cannot in the sense of the law, or with any propriety of language, be termed motherless children. The father of such, though they may be dependent on his labor for their support, cannot, therefore, claim exemption from the draft. The case is a hard one, and probably would have been provided for had it been foreseen. It is, however, the law as it is and not as it may be supposed it ought to be, that it is to be so enforced. In the case of a father having four sons, two of whom have died in the military service, it seems clear that the remaining two are not exempt from draft. Before such exemption can be allowed it must be shown that the father has not had two sons in the military service, so the law is written. Congress might well have accepted the loss of two sons in the field as equivalent to their continuance in the service, and therefore securing the same privileges to their family; but this has not been done. To hold otherwise would not be interpretation, but legislation.
In the case of aged and infirm parents having two sons subject to military duty, the father, or if he be dead, the mother, may elect which of them shall be exempt. The right of this exemption does not rest upon the parents' dependence on the labor of their sons for support. The law does not contemplate any such dependence.
Gen. Doubleday has been relieved from his command in the army of the Potomac and ordered to take command of the depot for drafted men to be established in Buffalo, and where the quota for this county will report.

GONE TO BUFFALO.—An order came to Col. Marshall yesterday to send a detachment of his men to Buffalo to preserve the peace during the draft. One hundred or more left at 11 this A. M. for that city.

THE QUOTA OF ERIE COUNTY.—We are happy to receive and publish the following note from the Provost Marshal of this District. We shall, at an early date, avail ourselves of the promise of Gen. Scroggs, and shall lay what information we can obtain, and deem important, before the public:—
BUFFALO, July 27, 1863.
MR. EDITOR,—In your paper of this date, after speaking of the result of an investigation, made as to the quota in the 28th District, you make the following inquiry:—
Should not a similar investigation be made in this county, before proceeding to the draft? In other districts, the quota for each ward and town is published. Is there any good reason why this should not be done here?
In reply I beg leave to say that any person desiring information or themselves or for the public, concerning the quota of this district, or that for each town and ward, can have now, and could have had at any time heretofore, all I possess in reference to these or any other matters relating to the draft, by calling at my office and making their wishes known. I am, Sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
G. A. SCROGGS, Provost Marshal,
30 District, N. Y.

The Draft in Buffalo, Etc.
BUFFALO, N. Y., August 17.
The draft in this district, the Thirtieth, was completed on Saturday without the least difficulty.
Drafting for the Thirty-first district commences  in Dunkirk to-day. No difficulty is apprehended.

The Quota of City and County by Wards and Towns.
We are permitted by Provost Marshal Scroggs to present the following table, showing the quota of Erie county, by towns and wards, under the new enrollment. The county or district is divided by the Provost Marshal into sub-districts, the boundaries of which can be ascertained by application at his office. There are enrolled in the district, of all three classes, about 24,000 persons. The first class, consisting of unmarried men from 20 to 45 and married men from 20 to 35, foots up 13,195 persons. The second classes, comprising all other persons subject to do military duty, consists of about 8000 or 9000 persons. The balance, known as the third class, is made up of persons in the military service of the U. S. at the time of enrollment. The quotas given below, include the fifty per cent additional, the real quota of the county being 2,539:—

OVERPLUS ON LAST YEAR'S CITY QUOTA.—An interesting question for our citizens at present is, whether the city or county will be allowed credit on its quota for the men who have been enlisted here since the quota of last year was declared full. We learn that in Rochester it is fully expected that such will be the case. A calculation was made of the number of men thus enlisted; and their names were sent to the War Department, coupled with the enquiry whether they would be counted on the present quota.—The answer received was that fair play would be observed, and that no district or part of a district but would receive full credit for what it had done. Buffalo was declared in February last to have filled her last year's quota. Since that time there has been an amount of recruiting done here, which would materially alter the face of affairs in the event of a draft, provided this reasonable expectation were fulfilled.

The Draft in Buffalo.
[From the Courier of yesterday.]
We are not disposed to regard lightly the stern necessity which seems to have rendered a draft necessary all over the northern states. The measure is as severe as any to which a loyal people can be subjected; but the "powers that be," who are supposed to know more about the immediate wants of the nation than those who do not occupy their high stand point, have decreed that conscription is necessary, and the people can only submit with the best grace possible. That there has ever been at any time in this city a serious disposition on the part of any responsible organization to oppose the enforcement of the draft with violence, we have never had good foundation for believing. It is true, that to a very large proportion of the people here as elsewhere, conscription is distasteful, and it is equally true that the people of this city have believed that there was just cause for complaint, in the fact that they had not received proper credit for the herculean efforts which they had put forth to raise men for the support of the government. If we add to this the fault-finding which has been indulged in against the $300 clause in the conscription bill, we think we may say, in fairness to all classes in the city that the offending, of what are spoken of, as the laboring classes, "hath this extent no more." If our neighbors were to give credence to the statements made by a portion of the press of this city, or were in any way to sympathize with their melancholy forebodings, they must needs have set our city down as one entirely at the mercy of a set of murderers and thieves, who were only awaiting for a pretext to destroy life and property. That the case is otherwise, is not the fault of these heated scribblers, who have left no means untried to bring about the very disasters which they would seem to deprecate.
The scenes of yesterday, however, showed how willingly and cheerfully all classes could submit to a measure even as severe as that of conscription.  During the draft at the Fort, the scene was one of jolly merriment, and still later on the streets, instead of gathering mobs, and terrible mutterings, we saw nothing but smiling faces, and heard nothing worse than the jest at the expense of the good-natured conscript. It would be impossible to justice to the draft in Buffalo, yesterday. Of course the manifestations of outside indifference, or joy, gave no clue to the sorrow which the wheel of fate had brought to many a home; but it proved that the people of Buffalo had been most wofully [sic] belied.

THE DRAFT YESTERDAY.—We are not disposed to regard lightly the stern necessity which seems to have rendered a draft necessary all over the Northern States.

The Draft.
BUFFALO, Aug. 17.
The draft in this district, the 30th, was completed Saturday without the least difficulty. The drafting in the 31st district commenced at Dunkirk st., to day.
The 4th Massachusetts, and 28th Maine regiments, arrived Sunday morning, and left immediately for home. The 47th Massachusetts arrived Sunday afternoon, and left in the evening, all via the Central Road. Five soldiers died in the hospital here, yesterday. Two of the 16th N. H., two of the 15th N. H., and one of the 26th Maine regiments.

THE DRAFT.—The draft for the city of Buffalo was brought to a close yesterday, much to the gratification of everybody. The very best of feeling has prevailed throughout the work of conscription, and it is a noticeable fact that the city has not been as quiet in a long time.
This forenoon the draft in the country towns commences. The following are the towns to be drafted, with their respective quotas: Alden 57; Amherst 90; Aurora 50; Boston 39; Brant 41. The names of those of our country friends who may be lucky enough to draw prizes will be published in full in the Courier & Republic of this afternoon.

HOW TO TELL A WILLING CONSCRIPT.—Since the first day of the Draft in this city, persons have been frequently seen in public, wearing a red ribbon in the button hole of their vest or coat. This, we understand, is a mark of honor; those wearing them, having taken the advice of the Express, and disdaining to claim exemption from physical inability, or pay the three hundred dollars, or furnish a substitute, have concluded to abandon father, mother, wife, children, property and all, and upon the call of General Scroggs, rally to form the conscript corps of the "Eagle Brigade." These patriots are numerous and comprise members of some of our first families, and should be greeted with a cheer whenever met.

A Few Words to the Drafted.
For the "Buffalo Commercial Advertiser."
FELLOW-CITIZENS: The enemies of the rights of man, falsely called nobles, and would-be aristocrats, have made war on our nation. They saw the continued prosperity, the increasing power, the rising greatness of a people for the most part educated in public schools—by nature's right rulers, by nature's law noblemen; and in their fear and fancied superiority they wickedly attempted to weaken and ruin that people, to dissever and disgrace our nation. They forced war upon us. If they succeed, if they dissever our nation, they, the English, French and Southern enemies of the rights of man will dictate to us terms of peace; they will control our legislatures, they will force on us their interpretations of international law, they will make us and our children their by-word; they will hold us their inferiors, their dependents, their vassals, their slaves.
Shall these things be? Shall we not resist them? Shall we not fight them? Shall we not humble them? Shall we not maintain our glorious independence? Shall we not show them that in moral and educated men there is the highest nobility, no matter where such men may be born, or where they may labor? Shall we not honor ourselves and our posterity forever?
Fellow-Citizens: To meet these enemies of the rights of man, our noble-hearted brethren voluntarily offered themselves. They have done valiant things. They have restrained our foes. They have contracted their boundaries. They have stripped them in part of their pride, their confidence, their resources, their strong holds arid their armies. But to subdue these rebels against wise laws and universal prosperity—to make them cry "Hold, enough"—our brethren now in the field are insufficient. You, fellow-citizens, by a process approved and adopted in all times, by all nations, and lately by our nation's highest councils, are called to stand side by side with your soldier-brethren, and join in this mighty contest. To leave your families, to take your places in the line of battle, are painful duties. But what nation ever existed whose citizens were not called on to perform such duties? What citizens were ever called on to perform such duties in a juster, nobler, holier cause? Bear in mind that this war must be fought through to the victorious end by us or by our children, or else we and they must be snubbed, mocked and controlled by a law-made nobility [sic]; and pitied, reproached and despised by the advocates of human freedom in other lands. Will you, then, fellow-citizens, now shrink from the calls of justice, of humanity, of honor, of patriotism? No! Never let it be said that freemen shrunk from the defence of their freedom! Never let it be said that freemen sought to live at their ease, knowing that thereby their children would become slaves! However heart-rending it may be to take the first step towards answering your country's call, yet take it. Go, like men, to your duty. Go, leaving to your wives and children the long-retained inheritance, the memory of patriotic husbands and fathers. Go, trusting your families to the kind providence of your and your father's God. Go, looking confidently, wherever need be, to the generous sympathy of your fellow-citizens remaining at home. If, in your absence, your dear ones shall be abundantly provided for, O how encouraging it will be to you, and how blessed to those who may give! Go, fellow-citizens, to the performance of your high duty. Go cheerfully, go manfully, go trustfully.

THE DRAFT FOR THIS DISTRICT —The Draft commenced at Dunkirk, on Monday, at 1 P. M. The place selected for the drawing was the Lodge Room in the Eastern Hotel building. A blind man, Patrick Mahon, who furthermore, "to make assurance doubly sure," was blindfolded, drew the names while the wheel was turned by Deputy Provost Marshal GLISAN. A detachment of the 17th N. Y. Cavalry came up from Fort Porter to serve as a guard during the drawing, and a portion are stationed in the building to act as sentries, while the remainder are held in readiness for any emergency. A special police force of citizens was also sworn in by Sheriff Kannedy. No fear, however, is entertained that their services will be needed. A large crowd was in attendance at the drawing on Monday and to-day, and a jovial feeling seemed generally to prevail, which became uproarious whenever the name of any prominent individual was announced. The lucky prize-holder fonud [sic] troops of friends to congratulate him, and an intense thirst seemed to be generated, which caused a speedy adjournment to the nearest lager stand. We publish the names of those who have been drawn up to this time, comprising 737 names, leaving 417 more to be drawn in the County to:day and to-morrow.

THE EXAMINATION.—The examination of claimants for exemption continues to-day. The following is a schedule of the work of the board up to noon to-day:
Number examined                               300
Number rejected                                 199
Number accepted                                101
Exempted for alienage, &c.      86
Number of substitutes accepted   51
Number of substitutes rejected    12

Thus far but one man has been before the board with his receipt for $300 from the collector of internal revenue.

THE LATEST DRAFT CIRCULAR.—AS there are various questions concerning the draft, exemptions, &c., which are not generally understood, the following from the renowned exhibitor of "wax figgers," Artemus Ward, may be regarded as decisive and final. Our friend " Harry" may depend on  its entire correctness:

CIRCULAR NO. 78.—As the undersigned has been led to fear that the law regulating the draft was not wholly understood, notwithstanding the numerous explanatory circulars that have been issued from the national capital of late, he hereby issues a circular of his own; and if he shall succeed in making this favorite measure more clear to a discerning public, he will feel that he has not lived in vain.
1. A young man who is drafted and inadvertently goes to Canada, where he becomes embroiled with a robust English party, who knocks him around so as to disable him for life, the same occurring in a licensed bar-room on British soil, such young man cannot receive a pension on account of said injuries from the United States Government, nor can his heirs or creditors.
2. No drafted man, in going to the appointed rendezvous, will be permitted to go round by way of Canada on account of the roads being better that way, or because his "uncle William" lives there.
3. Any gentleman living in Ireland, who was never in this country, is not liable to the draft, nor are our forefathers. This latter statement is made for the benefit of those enrolling officers who have acted on the supposition that the able-bodied male population of a place included dead gentlemen in the cemeteries.
4. The term of enlistment is for three years, but any  man who has been drafted in two places has a right to go for six years, whether the war lasts that length of time or not—a right this department hopes he will insist on.
5 The only sons of a poor widow, whose husband is in California, are not exempt, but the man who owns stock in the Vermont Central Railroad is. So also are incessant lunatics, habitual lecturers, persons who were born with wooden legs or false teeth. Blind men—unless they will acknowledge that they "can't see it"—and people who deliberately voted for John Tyler.
6. No drafted man can claim exemption on the ground that he has several children whom he supports and who do not bear his name, or live in the same house with him, and who have never been introduced to his wife, but who, on the contrary, are endowed with various mothers, and "live round."
A. W.

THE DRAFT.—The order of business before the Board of Enrollment at Fort Porter yesterday was as follows:
Receiving and examining of substitutes for the whole district.
Examination of drafted men who proposed to serve.
The regular order of business, as already announced was gone through with for the First Ward, and the Second Ward was called as far as applications for exemption on the ground of erroneous enrollment.
The following is a summary of the exemptions granted:
Over age                                  16
Under age                               10
Physical disability                   48
Only son                                    5
Aliens                            3
Error in enrollment        4
Paid $300                                  2
Thirty-two substitutes were accepted, and fourteen rejected.
Two conscripts presented themselves to be examined for duty: Thomas Orr, a porter at the American Hotel, and Frank S. Carpenter, formerly a member of the 21st Regiment, The former was accepted, and the latter rejected because of imperfect front teeth. Those papers which "have yet to learn of a single instance in which drafted men propose to go," will please make a note of these cases.
There are now 119 substitutes in Fort Porter, and appearances indicate that a much larger number of men than was generally anticipated, will be obtained by the draft in this District.
The order of business for to-day will be substantially that of yesterday.
The draft has its ludicrous aspects, and presents them after the editor of the Orleans Republican who is drawn and is going advertises for a substitute for the editorial chair:

"SUBSTITUTE WANTED.—Anticipating a pressing invitation from his Uncle Samuel to give his valuable aid toward restoring to sense certain refractory members of this 'great keantry.' The editor of this great paper desires to procure a substitute to conduct this journal during his absence; should he be included in the invitation now being issued. The applicant must believe in Andrew Jackson and Stephen A. Douglas; must have the reasoning powers of Bacon, the humor of Lamb, and the wit of A. Lincoln; the mildness of William Penn, the pugnacity of the Benecia Boy, and the general sweetness of character of a first class cherubim are indispensable. To such a person, in want of engagement, will be paid the munificent salary of $13 per month (U. S. notes or current funds) and rations. Apply in person."

According to announcement the long and anxiously looked-for draft was fairly inaugurated yesterday forenoon at Fort Porter. The attendance on the Grounds was not large, and from all appearances but little anxiety was manifested by our citizens generally as to the result of the day's operations. If we may except the soldiers which constituted the Provost Guard, the number at any one time in the neighborhood of the Fort, could not be estimated at over three hundred or four hundred. The first business of the
day was to dispose of a certain number of armed troops, around the Fort in such a manner as to prevent any interference with the business in hand. The Wheel of Fortune was located in the right front room of the Fort. The Board of En­rollment was present, consisting as is generally known of G. A. Scroggs, Provost Marshal; William F. Rogers, Commissioner of the Board, and John F. Trowbridge, Surgeon of the Board. We also noticed present Col. Brooks of the staff of Major A. S. Diven, Assistant Provost Marshal General of the Western Division of the State.—Nelson J. R. Guenther and Mr. M. Cadwallader acted as clerks.
The hour of half past 10 o'clock having ararived [sic], Provost Marshal  Scroggs, in the presence of some forty well known citizens read the order for the draft, and after some consultation with those present. Mr. Wm. S. Rice was selected to make the drawings, and was accordingly blindfolded. Four criers were stationed at different points leading from the room outward towards the assemblage gathered at the end of the bridge leading from the fort to the bank, the duty of each being to catch the name announced by the Commissioner and Clerk, as it came from the lips of his predecessor and give to it all the publicity which good lungs and sonorous voices would admit of. Everything being ready the draft for the First Ward was commenced.
The Commissioner then counted into the box the slips containing the names enrolled in the First Ward First District. The number thus placed in the box by Col. Rogers, was 553; number to be drawn, 160. On a second count the number of tickets was made 535.

This concludes the Draft in Erie County, a fact which we contemplate with much satisfaction.

The Town Meeting in Aurora.
The town meeting, in reference to issuing the bonds of the town for an amount sufficient to pay $300 for each drafted man, to be used for the support of his family if he should go to the war, or for the purpose of hiring a substitute, or paying the exemption fee, was held on Monday, in pursuance of a call made by the Town Clerk.—The town Board, consisting of four Republicans and one Democrat, by a partisan vote refused to sit in an official capacity. The citizens present, on the plea of "military necessity," organized the meeting and appointed two of the Justices of the Peace to act as tellers. The polls were kept open all day, and 187 citizens voted on the proposition, all but four depositing their ballots in favor of it. Those who opposed this measure, did not vote, although martial law had not been proclaimed in Aurora, and the polls were not guarded by bayonets.
The understanding at the preliminary meeting was that if the proposition to raise the money should be adopted by the town meeting, the citizens should unite in a joint note or obligation on which the money could be raised, relying upon the legalizing of their action by the Legislature. After the expression of opinion at the informal town meeting, the obligation was drawn up, and twenty-five citizens signed it, nearly all of whom were democrats, the Republicans generally declining to carry out the original understanding. The number of men volunteering to become obligated for the amount not being sufficient, the project fell through and the plan was abandoned. There was no disposition to make a party question of this matter on the part of the democrats, but the Administration men raised the cry of "Copperheads," and forced the issue as has been stated.
These men were zealous in stating that the Administration wanted men and not money, and that the object of their movements was to embarrass the Government. This being the case, every Republican drafted will, of course, go to the war. No one, not a "Copperhead," will insult the Administration by offering to procure his exemption with money. To be sure, the Administration says "give us men or money," leaving it entirely optional with the conscript; but this fact cannot be used by the "Blueskins" in extenuation of the crime of accepting the alternative offered. We learn that the young men of the town, almost without exception, supported the proposition to raise the money.

—The cordial greeting, with which our worthy Mayor has so abundantly been plied since his safe return from Eldorado to the bosom of his municipality, must have convinced him long ere this of the heartiness with which Buffalo welcomed him back. But if any doubt on the subject lingered in his mind, it would have been dispelled by the ratification of the general welcome which occurred at Bloomer's Hotel last night. The occasion was a complimentary dinner, tendered to him by a number of his personal friends. At nine o'clock about fifty gentlemen sat down to the following bill of fare, elaborated in Mr. Bloomer's best style. We give the bill with its very appropriate heading:—
"Home Again."
Given to
by his friends at
Bloomer's Hotel, Friday, Aug. 21st, 1863.
Blue Fish, boiled, Egg Sauce; Spanish Mackerel,
broiled; Brook Trout, fried with Pork.
Chicken, Parsley Sauce; Ham.
Fillet of Beef, larded, Mushroom Sauce; Spring
Buffalo Tongue; Chicken Salad.
Soft Crabs; Stuffed Clams Broiled Oysters.
Prairie Chicken, broiled, on Toast.
Cherry and Apple Pic; Snow Custard.
Peaches, Melons and Pears.
Almonds, Raisins, Figs.

After the cloth had been removed, Judge Verplanck, the Chairman, gave utterance to the uppermost sentiment of the company in the fol­lowing happy address:
Mr. Fargo:—
We have invited you here this evening to express to you, as your personal friends, our heartfelt joy at your safe return from your long and hazardous journey, and to bid you welcome home.
And not only as your friends, but as citizens of Buffalo, we welcome you back to your office of Chief Magistrate of the city, which you fill with so much honor to yourself and advantage to the public; and it is no flattery to say that the office of Mayor of the city of Buffalo has had no worthier occupant, or one who has enjoyed to a higher degree than yourself the esteem and confidence of the citizens.
We are proud to do honor to you, Sir, not only as our friend and Mayor, but also as one of our principal business men, and we recognize the fact that to you as much, to say the least, as to any other person, we are indebted for the establishment of that indispensable institution, the Express business; and that this agency, with the Overland Mail, in which you are also largely interested, has done much to bind in a Union never to be broken, the Pacific with the Atlantic States.
Above all, we honor you as a lover of our country, and its unity; and we rejoice with you, Sir, in the recently glorious victories of our army, and the repulse of the rebel invasion of the loyal States. I repeat, sir, you are welcome home.
Gentlemen, I have the honor to propose a toast to which I know you will most heartily respond: The health of our friend, the Mayor of Buffalo.
His Honor, the Mayor, responded as follows:

Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen,--For the complimentary manner in which you have been pleased to allude to my return, and for your expressions of personal kindness and partiality, I thank you. Returning from a long and wearisome journey, next to the welcome of home, nothing could be more pleasant than to enjoy the hospitality of the gentlemen with whom so many years of my life have been passed, and to whom I am indebted for so many evidences of good will.
Since leaving Buffalo, I have traveled two thousand miles by stage, and have crossed the mountains and traversed the desert which separate the Pacific States from the fertile prairies of the West. A few years ago, the overland passage to California was known only to explorers; now this route is traversed with as much regularity as a well conducted railroad. The tables at the eating houses on the line are spread in anticipation of the arrival of the passengers, and the coach very rarely disappoints the landlord.
Twenty years ago the Express business was in its infancy, and confined to carrying small parcels between the principal cities of the eastern States. Now its connections extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and with the Overland Mail Company and the Telegraph Company, unite the civilizations of the East and the mighty West. These companies have suggested what the Government ought to carry into effect at the earliest possible day. My journey has satisfied me that the Pacific Railroad is a national necessity. This work would make the Union more positively and materially valuable to the people of the Pacific States, and would bring them into closer relations of commerce and intercourse. If proper attention is paid by the Government to their mining and other local interests, and this bond of national unity is constructed, no people will be more loyal and patriotic.
You have alluded in terms more eulogistic than just, to my discharge of the duties of Mayor of this city.—Whatever success may have thus far attended my administration, is due simply to the effort to do the business of the city as I do my own. I am so fortunate as to know little of politics beyond the cardinal duty of supporting the Government, respecting the National and Municipal Constitutions, and obeying and, so far as my office requires it, enforcing the laws. If the policy I have pursued has met the approbation of the community at large, or of any considerable portion of it, I am amply rewarded for my labors.
You will excuse me, gentlemen, for taking this opportunity of expressing my obligations to Ald. Beckwith for the able manner in which he has borne the honors and the burdens of the Mayoralty during my absence. Unfortunately for him, the past three months have devolved unusual cares and responsibilities upon the City Executive. It is a matter of pride with me, as it doubtless is with you all, that our city has escaped whatever dangers were impending, and wears, to-day, an untarnished fame. The credit for this gratifying fact is certainly not mine.
Again thanking you most cordially for the honor you have done me, allow me to propose:
The Citizens of Buffalo—A Union-loving, order-loving, law-abiding people. It is a pleasure to serve those who know so well how to govern themselves.
To this toast the chairman called H. S. Cut­ting, Esq., to respond. Hon. A. M. Clapp, Wm. Dorsheimer, Esq., Dr. F. C. Brunck, Hon. F. A. Alberger, C. S. Macomber, Esq., and other gentlemen, followed in response to a succession of appropriate toasts, which we have not space to detail. We make room only for the following, received from R. N. Rice, Esq., Superintendent of the Michigan Central Railroad, a gentleman who, on account of his proverbial success as a generous host, ought to have had his turn at the festive board last night as a guest:
DETROIT, Aug. 21, 1863.
It not being in my power to join you in honor of the distinguished guest, I propose the following sentiment:
To our Honored Guest: May a long and prosperous career be the fortune of one who shall so Far-go from the friends of his bosom, and be restored to them again unscathed and unscalped amidst the temptations and perils lying in his path. To welcome him back is one of the most joyous events of our lives.
The dinner as a whole was one of the most harmonious and happy affairs of the kind we have ever known. We exercise an amount of self-denial when we express the hope that the occasion may not soon arise for its repetition.

EXAMINATION AND ACCEPTANCE OF SUBSTITUTES.—The Board of Enrollment convened yesterday morning at Fort Porter, for the purpose of examining and accepting substitutes. The substitutes first offered were the first received for examination. The formula of examination is as follows: The conscript gives to the Board his name, age, place of birth, occupation, date of enlistment, &c. His substitute is then examined by the Surgeon of the Board, and in the event of his being accepted, a card is given to him to that effect, which being passed over to the Clerk, he is at once enrolled. The conscript is then placed in possession of triplicates of the following document, which must be sworn to before a Justice of the Peace, by the substitute, and upon the return of same to the Board the conscript is released, and the substitute is at once turned over to the service of the United Slates. The affidavit reads as follows:

STATE OF ____, TOWN OF ____. I, ___ born in the State of ____, aged ___ years, and by occupation a ____ Do hereby acknowledge to have agreed with ____, Esq., of ____ to become his Substitute in the Military Service, for a sufficient consideration paid and delivered to me, on the ___ day of ___, 1863: and having thus agreed with said ____, I do hereby acknowledge to have enlisted this ___ day of ___ 1863, to serve as a Soldier in the Army of the United States of America, for the period of Three Years, unless sooner discharged by proper authority: I do also agree to accept such bounty, pay, rations, and clothing, as are, or may be, established by law for soldiers. And I do solemnly swear that I will bear true and faithful allegiance to the United States of America; that I will serve them honestly and faithfully against all   their enemies or opposers whomsoever; and that I will observe and obey the orders of the President of the United States, and the orders of the Officers appointed over me, according to the Rules and Articles of War.
The following is the Certificate of the Board of Enrollment:—
WE CERTIFY ON HONOR, That we have carefully examined the above named Volunteer Substitute agreeably to the Regulations, and that, in our opinion, he is free from all bodily defects and mental infirmity which would in any way disqualify him from performing the duties of a soldier; that he was entirely sober when enlisted; that he is of lawful age, (not under 18 years;) and that, in accepting him as duly qualified to perform the duties of an able-bodied soldier, and as a Substitute in lieu of ____, drafted in ____, 1863, we have strictly observed the Regulations which govern in such cases. This soldier has ___ eyes, ____ hair, ____ complexion: is ___ feet ___ inches high. The Declaration of the Substitute is as follows:—
I ___ desiring to enlist in the Army of the United States for Three Years, do declare, that I am __ years and __ months, of age; that I have never been discharged from the United States Service on account of disability, or by sentence of a Court Martial; and I know of no impediment to my serving honestly and faithfully as a soldier for three years.
The business transacted during the day was confined in the main to the first order of business, although some examinations of those who were physically disqualified were made. The names of the substitutes examined and accepted, with names of principals, the district enrolled from, and commencement of term of service, will be found below. It was found impracticable yesterday to adhere strictly to the order published by the Provost Marshal, hence it will be seen that the Districts do not appear in a regular order. It is possible .... two's experience matters will .... smoothly.

It will be seen that the number of Conscripts exempted yesterday, as given by the Surgeons, differs from the table furnished above for the same day, the former being 50, and the latter 48. We are inclined to the opinion that one of the number was finally held for duty, and that the other furnished a substitute. Our future lists will explain the matter more satisfactorily.
The following is the list of the drafted persons who received their final discharge yesterday, with names of substitutes, &c.

EXEMPTED.—Wm. Mullen, who is conductor of a freight train on the Central Railroad, was drafted at Buffalo. He procured a substitute, for whom he was to pay $250, and went with him to the Provost Marshal's office to he examined. While waiting to have his man examined, an individual stepped up and offered his "sub" $60 more. The latter said he must go where he could get the most money. "Go to—thunder!" replied Mr. Mullen; "I wouldn't send you to fight for me now, under any circumstances. I'll go and fight first myself, rather than send you!" The conductor went in to see if he would be received, when lo! he was rejected by the examining surgeon. He thinks he had a narrow escape from sending a substitute who would have deserted on the first favorable opportunity.

An Anti-Draft Riot there
The Buffalo Evening papers of yesterday has not yet been received here, but the following is significant:
(From the Rochester Union, last evening.)
We hear from passengers from Buffalo this forenoon, that that city is again disgraced by a mob—this time on account of the draft. Fears were expressed that thee mob would seize the State Arsenal there and government property. What arrangements have been made to quell the riot, we have not ascertained.
