Whether the general inetructloua issued by Secretary Stanton to tho provost marshals In th? several Slates will bo deemod suiliclcnt by General Hays to enforce the law in this city Is not d< Uolloly known. No .peolal orders hnvo bent tabued so far as this city is concerned, but it may be that Geoeral hays will deem Mr. Stanton's official aunuuncamint sufllclqqi authority to proceed upon, and in that event tho draft will be com mencd Immediately In all those districts that have failed to Oil the.r quotas.
