which appeared in this paper last week: 

"To secure, however, the requisite aid

the slave States, it is primarily essential 
iRat the General Government should adopt 
in its civil, no less thaa in its military, ad-

give to the communities involved sufficient

trary, an effective carrying out of the

honorably discharged. If the quota be 
not filled in any district by one draft, an- 
other is to be made until the number shall 
be obtair.ed. 

The section authorizing the Secretary 
to assign drafted persona with religious 
scruples against bearing arais, to hospi-

reported, with a proviso, confirming such 
provisions lo (hose whose deportment is

The House provision for the drafting 
of colored men is returned with the es- 
senliHl modification: When the slave of 
a loyal master is drafted and mu.itered 
into the service, thereupon such slave 
shall be free, a nd the master shall be paid 
the bounty of 8100. 

It ia understood this is the disputed 
point upen which a contest is expected

On Tuesday, 1 5th inst., a negro 
on Mr. E. H. Green's farm in Hopkins 
county, became refractory and att-mp'o.! 
theli(«ef Mr Mill*, the overseer 
M. drew his pistol, shot and mortally 
wuundad the negro, who shortly after- 
wardadied. The negro was a likely boy, 
«{(eJ aboBt 21 years. 

tS" We stated last week that the ne- 
jjroes in this city belonginsj to Mr. Buford 
Farris, who was arrested by an officer 
from Louisville, had been turned over to 
the military authorities. Such was the 
order, but it was not done. Mr. F. has 
rtfurned to the city, there being no 
ground for any charj^os that may have 
been brought against him. 

To CoBRBsrosDifiis. — "Read One, 
Keat! All," by "A. T. S.." will appear 
next wtek. "Woman's Rights," by 
"Mayflower," is well written, but ia de- 
clined for the reason that we have already 
published enough on that subject. — 
Would ke plensed to hear from the writer 
on other subjects. "Woman's Ricrhls," 
br "Nannie Gray," respectfully il«!c!:ried 
— the verses are not measured correctly.
