d twenty had obtained substitutes, and of these substitutes already forty had deserted. The bill would not array the non-slaveholder against the slaveholder but was designed to give to those owning a large number of slaves the power to protect the public interests by keeping their slaves in subjection; and at the same time gave the same opportunity to the poor artisan to protect his own and advance the public interests by following his pursuit. Mr. Sparrow, of La., and Mr. Barnwell, of S. C., held similar views of the question, contending that the object of the bill was not to array classes against one another, but to abolish substitutes from all classes except two, and those two consisting of those persons whose exemption was actually necessary to the public interest. Mr. Wigfall, of Texas, objected to the introduction of such issues as that class of legislation, such as the "rich against the poor," and the "non-slaveholder against the slaveholder."

Mr. Phelan offered an amendment placing the detail altogether in the hands of the military commandant of the locality, who would, he believed, be the best judge of the necessity of such detail. The amendment was rejected. Mr. Preston, of Va., moved to strike out the whole section. He believed that the States themselves, were competent to attend to this matter themselves. He did not think it was proper that this conscript army should be turned into a police to guard our cintroduced except upon the application of the owner of the estate, and the recommendation of five respectable citizens. Several other amendments were made and others proposed, upon which the discussion becoming extended, On motion of Mr. Preston, was postponed until to-morrow.

Mr. Wigfall, of Texas, objected to the introduction of such issues as that class of legislation, such as the "rich against the poor," and the "non-slaveholder against the slaveholder." He had hoped that all such ideas would never be presented before him after he left Washington. As the substitute law now stood, it was liable to that charge for only the rich could procure substitutes, while the poor fought the battles of the country. By the proposed law, the interests of the people and of the cause
