To day I am busily engaged in enrolling conscripts for the Confederate army. The Steamer Ruthven arrived from Galveston with a large freight and full list of passengers. The boys are engaged in the ware house under the directions of Sam*, storing freight. The little woman is still confined to her bed, but somewhat improving. weather clear & pleasant.
