Licensed preachers.

--The enrolling officer of the Raleigh (N. C.) district decided that simple licentiate preachers were not exempt from conscription. From this decision an appeal was taken to the Secretary of War, and the Secretary has sustained the appeal and reversed the decision of the enrolling officer. Hence this question is settled while the present law continues in force. Every man in every denomination who is authorized to preach, and is discharging his duties as required by his church, is entitled to exemption.
