more men Into the army Instead of taking out The best currency that could be pasted would be one to increase the army One victory at mauga would do more for the restoration of the rency than all the

accomplished by exempting farmers and planters If we have no country to vate T Unless an army teas got tn and that he would not tint a great for all the bills that were pasted If the under

soil from the limply from tht want of men not because tht urat had not bun properly attended to Mr the not propose to exempt agriculturalists generally but only those who bad substitutes in field Mr he would never any con- circumstances vote for a to exempt that class from Ibe military service It would he thought be unfair to who after having in the army for three years wore made to continue In vice while there were those outside who had never smelt gunpowder It waa unfair to discriminate be- tween the farmer who had a substitute and the who had a substitute Mr took the ground thM the was to protect the vital the country He admitted that we ought to have moro men but to stud mtn into Mr army without supplying them with food was to send them out to starve He wanted to give exclusive

the removal of ants that city may be lift as much to the men As of any magnitude mus t necessarily be suspended ID Virginia and Tennessee during tan Winter months tho probability Is that Is as likely to be attacked as any other point on the coast The purpose of enemy Is to bisect the Con- federacy and the possession of Mobile would no doubt be desirable as a necessary preliminary and as a base of operations for cooperating with the de- scending column from Tennessee Should these apprehensions be well founded the city will probably be subjected to an attack both by sea and land Whatever msy be
