GOOD NEWS—THAT CREDIT ALLOWED.—Captain Hudson yesterday received a dispatch from Provost Marshal General Fry, stating that the credit of 337 men to which this State is entitled, had upon second consideration, been allowed. It will be recollected that we stated yesterday morning that the Provost Marshal General had decided not to allow the credit, which was understood to be true, and the information fell like a bombshell among those engaged in filling the quota of this county, as no preparation had been made for such a result. The able-bodied will be gratified to know that the credit has been allowed as it gives this county thirty-nine men.
