Mr. Dorset, the father, says he already has two substitutes in the army, that he yet has three unmarried sons subject to draft, whoPage  364 will not shrink, and that he has still another son a prisoner among the rebels. He asks that this married son, now drafted, may be discharged. Let it be done. A. LINCOLN
