The Drafc. The Washington steam-ship has brought files of papers from America, and amongst the latest news is that the draft has been concluded in New York. This has been carried on, it is said, without the least interference in any district, and without any intimation of disturbance. The vile, cowardly rabble (says the New -York Times) who, on the former occasion, took advantage of the powerless condition of the city to rob, burn, and murder, were cowed into submission by the preparations made to enforce the law, and, on overt acte, to summarily and severely handle them. There is no occasion for any congratulation that everything passed off quietly.' The thieves and vagabonds who committed the former outrages and interrup- tions deserve no such direct acknowledgments. It was determined this time that' everything should pass off quietly,' and that the law to its last letter should be enforced and obeyed, not only so far as the ignorant and brutish (who held not revel before) were concerned, but also the master spirits, who encouraged them on, yet held themselves aloof from active participation. There has been a wonderful improvement in act and tongue in this city within the last two weeks, and it is due to the determined action of the national and local Government, and to the determination of every decent citizen, that the law should be sustained at any cost."
