he fact that the draft is to commence in New York city on Monday next. An official report made by the Adjutant-General of the State to Governor Seymour, shows that New York city has furnished from the beginning of the war 33,623 men in excess of all her quotas, not counting 20,851 men sent by her on occasion of sudden peril for the defence of the Yankee capital. The Board of Enrollment in the New Bedford (Mass.) district out of 1,286 drafted men. "passed" into the U. S. army 121. The Orleans (N. Y.) Republican gives some incidents of the draft in that district. It says: The enrolling officers had put down the names of all that they could see or hear of, including the lame, blind, deaf, and dead. This swelled the enrollment list, and of course the quota to be drawn. Among the names put in the wheel for this town we noticed that of Geo. K. Mason, who died in the United States service nearly a year since, and W. A. Shelden, who has not resided in this town in four years.
