The Chicago Tribune says . . .

. . . that of the 60,000 Illinois soldiers in the field, more than 40,000 are Republicans. We presume the proportion in Iowa is the same, or perhaps a little larger, owing the number of Germans who have enlisted from this State. In the New England States, the political status of the enlisted soldiers is three Republicans to one Democrat.
