for exemption a large number of justices of the peace and other county officers, and am pained to believe that the duty imposed upon them has not been efficiently discharged; and I am, therefore, bound to declare that, if this apathy and negligence continue, I shall feel it my duty to revoke many of the certificates which I have already granted, in order that such officers may be required to take the places of the delinquents whom, by their negligence, they have failed to restore to their several commands.
