Loss than four thousand men are now required to fill tho entiro quota of '.ue I State and I earnestly hope ,at they will be found to come íorward cheerfully aud enlistV thé war, as all our troops tbus far have done. And I desire thig not so niueh becauso there is anything discredititble in a draft, as because it is exceedmglv desirable that all the troops from Michigan sliould stand upon the same, footing in the anuy. Let the people of : Michigan make one more loyal and vigorous cffort ai:d tho entire number re quired can be obtained, and the high rcputatioii of the State for patriotism and protuptuess will be fullv maiutnined.
