It has been intimated ten a ready half of All those who have corns no Jer tie control of the enemy have manse to a Mike rate do a to by starvation and exposure. Their Owa writers Are witnesses of this fact. The now York Herald is Bent upon having the National legislature Congress removed to a Mere secure place than Washington City. The editor says the experience of the past three years furnishes an unanswerable argument in favor of such removal lie adds that had the capital been removed the Large army limit has been kept there fit is Protection against the rebels could have been employed inputting Down the rebellion. Be urges that the removal be made at once to new York a the Moat suitable place my he recommends Wash nalon Heights As the proper site having All the necessary buildings in Tho immediate Vicinity and having also uie great advantage of being easily protected Gamst any stuck by the Rel la tits Volunteer Buist Iii As it is when the it cat in regard to the Mode of procuring volunteers White and coloured la this City and the country districts Are made known the Public will be forced to recognize a picture beside which All that Clarkson a us Wube Lorce onco declaimed about the horrors ill he slave Trade will be forgotten Iio cussing or the administration of drinks containing narcotic Noison. Has been for months one of the Ordinary vie Thoutt of promoting enlistments. False representation of every variety have also been in use and in Many cases the recruits have been compelled to swear in under threats of physical Viu Leuce in Case of refusal. Nor is this Tho worst. Between the Volunteer brokers and certain of the authorities there is at least Prima Facia evidence of something like complicity in a scheme of fraud the most cruel ruthless and Gigantic that Modem Days have witnessed. In almost every Street of our City parents Are lamenting the enlistment of their hapless sons Mere Boye Between fourteen and seventeen year of age who have been made drunk and then enlisted and robbed of every Dollar of their Bounty. Cases Are on record in which old graph Licad etl Man tottering on the verge of the grave have been carried while intoxicated to a Barber s shop their hair dyed their general appearance spruced up with some semblance of fictitious Juveni Lity and then enlisted their Bounty Money being the Reward of the patriots engaged in this honorable business.

Of the Many Hundred men Riker s be ipad and in other depots it a alleged and with Strong presumptive proof that they have Nat received an average at the outside Al one Hundred dolls s each of the Bounty thru allowing the had Baoe margin of four Hundred thousand dollars to be divided amongst the brokers and Auch others As they May have to Divide with. It a High time that government should interfere to put a end to this system which if unchecked will make our soldiery hereafter be know at the a a Moat Noble army of half a dozen of the Volunteer brokers should be sent to fort Lafayette to commence with and if it can bet roved in tit any officers of the government have been in complicity with thin those traitors in uniform should be either roasted alive or made brigadier generals. It never was easier to procure recruits of the beat kind family and honorable if Only a just system be adopted in their procurement. Thousand of Hearty and patriotic Young men Are willing to enlist if approached in a proper manner but under the system As now administered and it is much worse in the new England states the brokers can obtain More for some Tipsy broken Down unfortunate whom they can defraud out of nine tenths of Hia Bounty than they can Hope to receive from a sober Clear headed fit Volunteer who goes into the service with his eyes open and anxious to leave behind him when quitting Home some provision for the support of Hia .

The writer seems to have obtained some tolerably Correct information of affairs in Tex. He says the rebel have one fort at Littaua with two guns add another at Velasco with three guns and he says it is expected by mean of these two fortified pbie�3 and the troops stationed there to prevent the Federal from crop Sinju to the North Side of the it Ramos River. 11a says there is a mean depth of 7 feet water on the Brazos bar and 15 feet inside. But he say it will not be necessary to employ the Navy in Case of an attack and that the Witter is sufficient for the transports except three or four. Ija says they have some vague information from do Sorters of it rebel gun boat somewhere in Matagorda Hay.

Magrud a s Grey a unpopularity in Texas owing to bomb of his orders and f face All other Yankee Waltere be takes thu a a very Strong indication that our people Are almost ready for Lite restoration of the Union. This verifies the adage that drowning men will catch at a the truth is the Yankees Are obliged to make Union men of a Large majority of us on some pretext or other in order to keep up the weaning War spirit at the North. The same writer has a Good Deal to say about Oen. Mag Ruder order to born the towns of powder Horn ind Tauaola and Lavaca and the preparations by the inhabitants to resist that order and be pretend really to think that a civil disruption would have been the Cense Quence of an attempt to enforce that order. Since that order was issued he says the inhabitants have shown extreme willingness for those places to be taken Possession of by the Yankees. He Speaks of our last legislators As a conservative body by which he of coarse Means almost ready for Lincoln s Rule and the reason he assigns is that they refused to pass an act making Confederate notes a Legal tender. He then add san act nullifying the recognition of the confederacy would handsomely consummate their conservative he ought also to Call the Confederate Congress conservative for the very same reason for they have also thus far refused to make their own notes a Legal tender.
