Editors, my sole object in writing this article is, simply to correct an error into which "Militia" has fallen, and which is calculated to injure the volunteer system now going on in the city and county, without the slightest intention, I am sure, on the part of "Militia" to do so. So, according to his own statement, the city and county together is yet 293 short of the quota. But his figures are very far from being right. I have been informed by a Colonel of one of the city regiments, that the city has furnished considerably over and above her quota; but from accurate calculation the county is 410 or 415 short. I was anxious that "Volunteer Private" should reply to "Militia," but as he has not done so, I determined to notice it myself. If the county is short of her quota, as we are told by the gentleman already mentioned as commanding a regiment, then they should come forward at once and fill up the ranks of the various companies now forming in the city and county.
