The Conscription Law. J
One of ,tbe last lilj3as?eJ by Con
rres was a Ccncription Law. MTe in
"jtend publishing it as soon a?! can find
room in our 'columns. It provide that
all the a"llebodied men in the United
military duty at the call ot -the jPiesi-
dent, judges of the -various courts of the
United ' States ; Head of Departments;
the only son of aged and infirm pa'renis
dependent upon him; thesevho Lave
been guilty of some infamous crime, and
a few others in cases where aed cr m-
firm relatives were dependant; on them
for support. : ' : 1
It includes all Government Officials ;
Members of Legislators'; Governors of
States ; Ministers, and all classes of peo
ple'. - ;
It is thought that the rre?idcnt wiu
call out six hundred thousand soldiers un
der this' law, to be apportioned among
the States according to" popujution, ref
erence to be had to the number of men
already enlisted. YVe; suppose if it is
ascertained that Ncbrcska . has furrish-j
ed more than her proportion of volun
teers no draft' will lake place here. But
should it take place it will not require
rnore than 700 meroto fill pur quota.
Provost Marshal for Nebraska.
Awong the gratifying occurencs cf lute
is ibe formation' of the Territory of. Ne
braska into a Provost District, and the
appointment cf Maj Geo AiisiSTRO'a.'Df
the 2d Nebraska Cavalry as IrovcstIar
shal. Had this been done before, . we
to-day would have less .eneourogement
! given the rebellion - by the "sptaking,
writing, or publishing disloyal senti
ments." It is not only a mistaken, but
suicidal notion cr policy that " many of
fences which in time- of peace are civil
offences" do not in "time cf war become
military offences, to be trie I by 'military
tribunals, even in places where civil tii
bunals exist." Treason cf late, has
'stalked abroad in noon-da) within our
Territorial limits, and there has been
none to. say "thus far shall thou go and
no farther." The loyal and Union loving
citizens of Nebraska owe a debt of grat
ltude to Maj. Gen. Ccetis, not only for
the establishment of the Provost District,
but for the appointment ef Maj. Atm
strcng. In common 'parhnce, it is the
"right man in the right place." Major
Arnmstroug's political antectdets are,
lllUiC Ul OLl UiU scuvui lyniiunm. v. . ,
since the breaking, out cf the rebellion,
he has not allowed party issues of party
lines to interfere with his patriotism.
He is one of the Butler and Dix stimp,
of uncompromising Union men, and who
is not afraid of hurting rebelsV . We may
lo.sk for a vigorous and prompt. discharge;
of duty at the hands of JUaj. A. He
has published a lengthy, order of
Col.'' Dick, Provost Marshall Generalof
this Department, in relation to the power
duties and jurisdiction of. provost Mar
shals, frocs which we make the following
"Provost Marshals .will arrest, and
take evidence against all persons guilty
ofr disloyal conduct, such as giving. aid.
and enoouragement to the rebellion, in

.There . is a class cX pretended -loyal,

joined the rebel army, have encouraged
iheir relatives and neighbors to go. and
who uphold and support them by secret

u'ho -associate with men who have bean
disloyal from the first; and With, kno.vn

men. while pretending that they are bet

who sustain its polity and measures as;

such conduct. "and language gives strong
d encouragement to those ac-j

ha a strong and growing party in the
north, bv'whose agency they eventual
will be able to divide the country perma
nently; and .strengthens and prolong
the efforts cl the rebels. 'Men', are. not

The good cf society and the safety of

rebellion, offences such as those spoken
of abavehould be tried and punished by
aiihtary .'power.1 .Many--oences- wnih
