The Exemption act Believes no one in service. Many persons are of the opinion that the exemptions apply to soldiers already in the army (especially to conscripts under the first law,) and that the act provides for their release from the service. This is a mistake, as will be seen by the following extract from "General Orders No. 82," just issued from the War Department, containing instructions for the execution of the late Conscription law. "V. Exemption.--The Exemption act will be construed prospectively, and does not authorize the discharge of any one enrolled or in service prior to the 11th day of October, 1862.""
