The Confederate Congress has passed an- Act,
by which certain persons are exempt from milita-

All in the service or employ of the Confederate
States; judicial and executive officers of the Con-
federate and State governments; the members of
both houses of Congress, and of the Legislatures
of the several States and their respective officers;

The following are not exempt:
Military officers not in actual service, persons
exempt by State laws, but not by the above act;
foreigners who have acquired domicil in the
No person other than those expressly implied
in the above act can plead exemption from military
service in conformity with the regulations already
published, (General Orders No. 29;) and such ex.
emption is valid only so long as the said substitute
is legally exempt.
Our readers will excuse the issue of our paper

know that these are near election times and they

that it kept us very near the whole of this week
busy in printing tickets &c., for the candidates of
the Counties of Duval, St. Johns, Putnam and
Clay. We have no workmen but one young man
who has not quite learned the business yet, and
therefore, we of course have all the work. to do,
please excuse us this week.

EXPLANATION-When the U. S. Forces under Brigadier General J. M. Brannan visited Jacksonville, Fla., the
form of the "Southern Rights" was found standing in the Office just as it was left by' the Skedwaling Rebels.
The office was immediately "cleaned out," and-there being more "Devils" than printers present--the form was
thrown into "Pi" in less time than it takes to write it. A proof sheet corning into our possession, we re-print
the sheet as near like the original as possible, for the purpose of showing to our friends at the North, .the Tal-

'" PENINSULAR LIFE BUILDING
On Sunday, October 5, 1862, Jacksonville was occupied by Federal forces.
This was the second occupation of the town by U.S.troops since the beginning
of the war, the former being in the spring of that year. Captain Valentine
Chamberlain, of Company A, 7th Connecticut Volunteers, upon his return to the
Federal headquarters at Hilton Head, S.C., wrote a long personal letter giving
a description of the occupation and his impressions of the event. This letter
was dated Hilton Head, October 10, 1862, and is still preserved by the Chamberlain
family of New Britain, Conn., who kindly sent me a copy. In this letter Captain
"............Monday morning (October 6,1862] was a gala time with the boys before
the General (Gen.J.M.Brannan] found out what was going on; almost every store and
shop on the street was broken into. Most of them had been closed for a long time,
but there were goods in a few. A drug store was the best place. The boys pulled
everything open and such a medley as they brought away. You can imagine,perhaps,
a drug store, with most of the articles packed, opened and overhauled by soldiers
and then imagine them on their way back to their bivouac with their plunder. I
leave it at any rate to your imagination. The General soon put a stop to most of
this indiscriminate plundering. In the P.M. he gave me instructions to fire the
printing office of the Secesh paper and to gut it--I did both and more too. I
found some of the type up and so I added some to the matter, having printers in
my company, and printed a few copies. It proved quite a sell. The General thought
it was genuinely the last paper printed by the retreating editor. After we got
home the printers of the New South [a paper printed at Port Royal,S.C., by the
Federal army] got hold of a copy and they supposed it was real Secesh, so they
went to work and set it up anew and are making, I suppose quite a speck as they
sell the paper for five cents. After printing [at Jacksonville), as I have said,
I had my company take down the press and carry it to the boat.............."
The insertions,in parentheses, in the above quotation are mine.
The photostat opposite is of an original as re-set by the New South, now in
the possession of Miss Cornelia Chamberlain, of New Britain. It is quite apparent
that the additions made by the Federal printers are in the first column, under
Announcements the first and last paragraphs, and under Notice the first three
items. The balance of the matter is undoubtedly as originally set.
