and the officers and men under their commands, for gallant military service. The House also passed a bill to provide for the payment of provost marshals and military clerks. Also, a bill to increase the compensation of the Surgeon-General, so as to give him the pay and allowances of a colonel of cavalry. The House then took up for consideration the exemption bill. Several attempts were made to table the bill and recommit it to the Military Committee, but they failed. A clause was adopted exempting all ministers of religion engaged in the discharge of their duties on the 17th of February, 1864. Also, an amendment to exempt all mechanics and agriculturists over forty-five years of age, habitually engaged in the prosecution of their calling, who have eight white persons in their families dependent on them, and all such persons now in the army who would have been so exempted had they been at home. Pending the consideration of the bill the House adjourned.
