The amendment in the nature of a substitute, submitted by Mr. Holman, was then read as follows, viz: Strike out all after the enacting clause and insert: “That all able-bodied white male citizens of the United States, between the ages of twenty and forty-five years, except as hereinafter excepted, are hereby declared to constitute the militia of the United States, and shall be liable to perform military duty in the service of the United States when called out by the President for that purpose in the manner authorized by law. “SEC. 2. And be it further enacted, That the following persons be, and they are hereby, excepted and exempt from the provisions of this act, and shall not be liable to military duty under the same, to wit: such as are rejected as physically, mentally, or morally unfit for the service; such as are necessary for the protection and support of aged or infirm parents, orphans, or helpless children, and such unfortunate persons as are not provided for by the public: Provided, That in each case above mentioned the circumstances of the party claiming exemption be such that he cannot render an equivalent for personal service; also, first, the Vice-President of the United States, the judges of the various courts of the United States, and the heads of the various executive departments of the government; second, the only son of aged or infirm parent or parents dependent upon him for support; third, where there are two or more sons of aged or infirm parents subject to draft, the father, or, if he be dead, the mother may elect which son shall be exempt; fourth, the only brother of children not twelve years old, having neither father nor mother; fifth, the father of motherless children under twelve years of age, dependent upon his labor for support; sixth, where there are a father and sons in the same family and household, and two of them are in the military service of the United States as non-commissioned officers, musicians, or privates, the residue of such family and household, not exceeding two, shall be exempt; seventh, all fathers having two or more children, no one of whom is over the age of fourteen years, owning or occupying and actually residing upon a farm of not exceeding fifty acres, upon which he is dependent for the support and maintenance of himself and family; and no persons but such as are herein excepted shall be exempt: Provided, however, That no person who has been convicted of any felony or other crime punishable by imprisonment in a penitentiary or State prison shall be enrolled or permitted to serve in said forces. “SEc. 3. And be it further enacted, That the national forces of the United States, not now in the military service, shall be divided into two classes, the first of which shall comprise all persons subject to do military duty between the ages of eighteen and thirty-years, and all unmarried persons subject to do military duty above the age of thirty and under the age of forty-five; the second class shall comprise all other persons subject to do military duty, and they shall not, in any district, be called into the service of the United States until those of the first class shall have been called. “SEC. 4. And be it further enacted, That the enrolment of each class shall be made separately, and shall only embrace those whose ages shall be on the 1st day of July thereafter between eighteen and fortyfive years. J “SEc. 5. And be it further enacted, That all persons thus enrolled shall be subject, for two years after the 1st day of July succeeding the enrolment, to be called into the military service of the United States, and to continue in service for one year, but not exceeding the duration of the war; and when called into service shall be placed on the same footing, in all respects, as volunteers for three years or during the war, including advance pay and bounty as now provided by law. “SEc. 6. And be it further enacted, That any person enrolled and drafted according to the provisions of this act, who shall furnish an acceptable substitute, shall thereupon receive from the board of enrolment a certificate of discharge from such draft, which shall exempt him from military duty during the time for which he was drafted, and such substitute shall be entitled to the same pay and allowances provided by law as if he had been originally drafted into the service of the United States. “SEc. 7. And be it further enacted, That such militia of the several States shall be enrolled under the authority of the respective States, and when any number thereof shall be called out by the President of the United States as authorized by law, the same shall be organized into companies and regiments by the governor of such State, subject to the regulations established by the President of the United States in pursuance with existing law, and the company, field, and staff officers of the forces so organized shall be commissioned by such gov. ernor as now provided by law for commissioning officers for the volun. teer forces: Provided, That such militia shall not be called out for a period of more than one year: And provided, further, That the President of the United States in calling out the militia shall apportion the number from each State according to population, having regard to the number of volunteers or militia already furnished by the States respectively. “SEC. 8. And be it further enacted, That such of the volunteers and militia now in the service of the United States as may re-enlist to serve one year, unless sooner discharged, after the expiration of their present term of service, shall be entitled to a bounty of fifty dollars, one-half of which to be paid upon such re-enlistment, and the balance at the expiration of the term of re-enlistment; and such as may re-enlist to serve for two years, unless sooner discharged, after the expiration of their present term of enlistment shall receive, upon such re-enlistment, twenty-five dollars of the $100 bounty for enlistment provided by the fifth section of the act approved 22d of July, 1861, entitled ‘An act to authorize the employment of volunteers to aid in enforcing the laws and protecting public property.' “SEc. 9. And be it further enacted, That any officer absent from duty with leave, except for sickness or wounds, shall, during his absence, receive half of the pay and allowances prescribed by law, and no more; and any officer absent without leave shall, in addition to the penalties prescribed by law or a court-martial, forfeit all pay or allowances during such absence. “SEC. 10. And be it further enacted, That the commanders of regiments and of batteries in the field are hereby authorized and empowered to grant furloughs for a period not exceeding thirty days at any one time to five per cent. of the non-commissioned officers and privates, for good conduct in the line of duty. “SEC. 11. And be it further enacted, That the pay of the privates in the regular army and volunteers and militia in the service of the United States shall be fifteen dollars per month from and after the 1st day of March, 1863, until otherwise provided by law.” And the question being put, Will the House agree thereto?
