The conscription act.

An act passed the House of Representatives yesterday, extending the operations of the conscription act to forty-five. It authorizes the President to call on the Governors of the respective States for their respective quotas of men. The Senate was engaged yesterday on the exemptions to be made in the conscription act now before that body.
