Even the Quakers are aroused, as appears by the following:

A Quaker merchant in New York said to one of his clerks:

Well, friend----, is thee willing to enlist?

“I have thought of it,” replied the clerk, “but hesitated because I feared to lose my situation.”

“ If thee will enlist,” replied the Quaker, “not only shall thee have thy situation, but thy salary shall go on while thee is absent. But if thee will not serve thy country, thee cannot stay in this store.”

This is but a fair sample of the spirit now being displayed all over the free States. Can freedom be crushed out among such a people? Not all the Yanceys, Wigfalls and Jeff. Davises in creation could do it!--Evening Post.
