Volunteering OF Colored Men

—We understand that some seventy or eighty free colored men have enlisted in the United States service in the Clearspring District, and are awaiting transportation to Baltimore. It is now said that the County will receive credit on the draft for its volunteers, which, if true, will greatly diminish its quota.— Col. J. P. Crenger in a letter to the Frederick Examiner, says upon the authority of the Secretary of War that all men recruited in the counties will be credited accordingly.-
