The Conscripts.

In view of the immense preparations of the North for Southern subjugation it is the evident duty of the Government to avail itself of all the means of resistance which Congress has placed in its hands. The forces authorized by the late extension of the Conscript law, if not called into the field, ought at least to be thoroughly organized and regularly drilled, so as to be fully prepared for the time when their presence in the field will be required. The importance of this must have suggested itself already to the Government, although we should like to see some indications of the fact. The war is assuming more formidable proportions every day, and it behooves us to neglect nothing, to look ahead and call into requisition every element of strength.
