MILLS, Chm'a Oonnty Central Committee, We publish the President's call for 500,000 men, to be raised within 50 d«ys or they will be raised by draft. .. It can hardly be necesrary in Iowa who has so promptly and fully honor ed all drafts npon her patriotism and loyalty, to nrge the importance and necessity ot this call, upon oar people. No arguments will be required here, at least by the mass of the citizens of Iowa, to prove that, owing to the un avoidable cnsualties of the service, the expiration of term* of enlistment and the incalculable importanoc of the movements now in progress, more men most be had, tor future needs.— Grant and Sherman may have force eoongh to-d »y but a few months hense, they will not have so many Some will have perished in battle, some will be in hopitals, while many others, having honorsbly served out their time, will be discharged- These contingencies mast be provided for in season. Iowa will fhrnlsh her share. Indeed, we doot think when the de fioits of some of the Eastern States are made up, the draft upott tn will be very large. **he deHcribed condition of our neighbor baring State of Missouri, is well calculated to suggest to those living along this border, the possibility of a raid into onr State, and it strikes us that som* measures to meet such a contingency, would be wise and pru dent. But we at the same time deem it al most useless to gay anything on the subject. Such is the temperament of the people of thia country, that we have no Idea anything short of a rebel army actually with in our borders would arouse t*ie public to the importance of organizing and arming in defense of our homes and property. Have we not a militia law? If so, it would be a good idea to put it in force. 4odit'ii Lady'6 Book.—Our lady readers will 3nd the number of this excellent maga zine for August one eminently worthy of their approval.

The latter must not be liable to military duty, and roust make idian the second, but this Georgia campai oath that they are exempt from the dratt by reason of alienage, or having served two years in the United States army or navy since April 15, 1881. In such cases certiii cates of exemption will be granted to the principal for three years by the Proyoat Marshal of the district in which he resides, on receipt of the oath, and enlistment papers of his substitute. incessant labor, hard marches, short rations and hardships generally, makes us look back at Shiloh, Corinth and Vicksburg as holiday affairs. We have very hot weather, good water, but nothing to eat in this country but blackberries and apples, just getting ripe in small quantities. The army is enjoying ex cellent health considering their fare and ex posure. Every one is confident of our ulti mate success. Excuse the construction and penmanship of this communication, as I have written it with our batteries playing overhead, while every few minutes a rebel Minie comes "ka zip" along after you, knocking the dirt up at your feet, whistling by your ears, cutting through your brush "shebang," while an occasional shot from a rebel gun comes screeching, screaming and hissing over your head uncomfortably near, while the boys yeil ont down the lines "to your holes."

As yet, we are a bloodless regiment, and have rm.t with no adventures that are not peculiar to new troops. Yet we claim to bs having a harder time than any regiment of 100-day men from Iowa or Illinois. We are further south, in the worst place, and under as strict discipline as any of the raw on?s. This is probably the worst hole in the universe for impure water, death dea'ing m'asrnas, and ever-croaking frogs, excepting Cairo, Ills., at least my exnerience, even though it be limited, urges me to make this assertion with no foar of successful contradiction.— The regiment has about one-half as many effective men now as when we left Towa the sick list showing 315 unfit for duty, and the number constantly upon the increase. Thirteen have died and have been buried with military honors probably realizing that it is a proud thing to die in the service of one's country. If we stay in this dam nable hole of corruption, I am fearful that many, many more will bo seized with this horrible faoination to perish upon the altar of a beloved country. As a company we are extremely healthy, not reporting over ten unwoll at any one time. Those in hosr pital, two with sore arms from vaccination, and four that we report unfit for dutv, when the truth is they do more mirc'iing than any men in camp. They always move up on the double-quick in leaving their tents, and as persistently come in upon slow time. In faot they are a forlorn looking set, and have acquired very "loose" habits. When they start upon the run you can hear the boys yell, "there goes a man with the Ar kansas quick-step." How to account for our health as a company, I do n«t know, unless it is that we confine our m»n to army rations, and prohibits the use of all green vegetables and fruit*. The boys complain when we confiscate a nice lot of green ap ples, but it is no use, we make them let the trash alone. I would rather hear a well man grumble than a sick one groan. Every one of tbe Ottumwa boys are well, and in good spirits Yours, Ac. J. Hawley, Jr. iu/ I '•iLow i St. Joseph, July 19. €W.
