   THE DRAUGHT.—Among the citizens of Boston whom the wheel of fortune has summoned to the service of their country are six policemen, the incumbent of a church, a postmaster, and a poet. In Rhode Island several coloured men were drawn, also a Catholic priest, and the editor of Providence Journal is “in for it.” The latter writes in his paper :—We thought we had some friends, but we had no idea that they were so many as called to congratulate us yesterday afternoon. And how delightful it was to find such a surplus of editorial talent in the visitors, and such kindness of heart as to offer to fill our place during our temporary absence of three years in the army! In 15 minutes we were so fortunate as to come into our office two or three gentlemen ready to take the 'heavy leaders,' one witty paragraphist, one reliable gentleman, one intelligent contraband,² one deserter, who had always been a Union man, and one veracious lady who had escaped from rebeldom. I was cheering to think that so much help was so promptly at hand in the emergency.”
   ILLICIT DISTILLATION.—Early on Saturday morning last, Constable M'Caughan and party, of the Omagh Constabulary, made a seizure of a still, still head and worm, in full work, together with 270 gallons wash, and a number of utensils, in a glen in Botera, within a few miles of town. They also succeeded in capturing two men named Peter Hughey and James M'Carroll, who were brought before R. D. Coulson, Esq., R.M., and summarily convicted in a penalty of £6 each, or three month's imprisonment. The fines not being paid, prisoners were committed.—Derry Journal.
(Before Mr. JOHNSON.)
TWO labouring men were each fined 10s. with an alternative of fourteen days' imprisonment, for assaulting the police while bringing them to the bridewell on last night. A woman of the town named Mary Bradley, was sent to jail for a fortnight in default of paying a fine of 10s., for having been drunk and disorderly in the streets on last night.
   Thomas M'Carthy was remanded on a charge of being absent from the West Cork Artillery.
   Anne Murphy was put forward, charged with using indecent expressions opposite Dr. Lefebure's office, on Lapp's Quay, and also with assaulting sub-constables Meehan and Hogan, while they were conveying her to the bridewell. She was sent to jail for a month in default of finding bail for her good behaviour.
   Mary M'Carthy was put forward, charged with stealing two pewter pints from Mr. Mulroney's public- house, Great George's-street.
   One of the women in the bazaar market, proved that she bought the two pints from the prisoner.
   The prisoner said that she was a servant of Mrs. Mulroney's ; that Mrs. Mulroney owed her some wages, and that she took the pints before her face.
   Mrs. Mulroney was sworn, and said that she did owe the prisoner two shillings ; the prisoner did not take the pints before her face.
   The prisoner was discharged.

A VACANCY having occurred on the Board of Guardians for the Youghal Union—there were two candidates.

      For James Joseph Barry  ...    ...  385
      For John Conroy Brown  ...    ...  238
      Majority for J. J. Barry  ...    ...  147

   INCIDENTS OF THE DRAUGHT.—A man in Acton [Massachusetts], having a presentiment that he could be drafted, went to Boston, enlisted, and secured his bounty ; his name was the first drawn. Yale College is called on pretty loudly ; eighty students and several tutors and professors had their names on the roll of honour. A grocery store in Worcester completely drained, all the proprietors and clerks being draughted. A lady in Cambridge has sent three sons to the war, two of whom have been killed in battle, and the third died from sickness. A fourth has now been drafted. Many are the expedients to which the draught has given rise. One draughted man procured a substitute by giving him 200 dollars and an insurance on his life for 1,000 dollars. If he falls within a year, the substitutes friends are to receive 500 dols., and the other half is to be reserved by the insurer. If he serves his time out and comes home with honour, the life insurance policy is given to him. More than 1,000 persons, whose names have been published on the papers as having been draughted from Boston, have left for the British provinces.—Springfield Journal.
   We understand that Mr. Baron Wilde will succeed to the office of Judge Ordinary of the Court of Probate and Divorce, vacant by the death of Sir Cresswell Cresswell. —Globe.
   THE ISLINGTON MURDER.—The charge of murder against William Henry Clarke, was withdrawn, but the prisoner was committed from Clerkenwell Police-court after our report[er] left, to take trial on the charge of indecent assault on two little girls, named Mary Ann Baxter, aged 12, and Sophia Allen, aged 8. Mr. Barker expressed his willingness to accept bail, the prisoner himself in £100, and four sureties in £25 each ; but as it was not forthcoming the prisoner was removed, at the same time protesting his innocence.

1—Edward Gallwey was actually the second casualty of the Civil War, having been mortally wounded when a cannon exploded while firing a salute at the ceremony surrendering Fort Sumter to the Confederate forces. The first fatality was Pvt. Daniel Hough who was killed in the same accident. Thus the first casualties of the Civil War were from “friendly fire,” the first deaths from hostile action taking place when the 6th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia forced their way through Baltimore on their way to Washington on the 19th of April 1861.
2—Contraband was the term used to describe former slaves who had been freed by Union forces advancing into Confederate territory.
