Showing their hands.

--The call for the militia has made a good many ‘"hombres"’ show their hand. The first ward has a large Italian population, a large proportion of whom evince a great disinclination to perform the service required of them. We are informed that the little village of Manchester is likely to be materially benefitted, as a number of ‘"noncombatants, "’ residing here since the ‘"call,"’ have selected that as a place of residence. Manchester being on the South side is for the present exempt.
