Recruiting at the North.

--A gentleman recently from New York informs us that the recruiting in that city proceeds slowly and that a draft will probably have to be resorted to. The lawfulness of this draft, under the theory that the South is a rebellious district of the United States, is disputed by some lawyers, but law being obsolete in the United States, and Lincolnism being supreme, the draft will go on. Our informant thinks that while parties interested in army contracts are eager to fire the popular heart, yet Manassas gave it such a soaking, it does not burn rapidly. ‘"On to Richmond,"’ however, is still believed practicable, but not by the Manassas route. Our informant anticipates scenes of great misery and riot in New York this winter.
