LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.
IMPORTANT REPORT ON PHILADELPHIA ENLISTEMENTS.
PHILADELPHIA HAS AT LEAST 39,000 IN THE FIELD.
HER QUOTA MORE THAN FULL!
Entitled to a Credit of at Least 6000 on any Future Call.

To the President and members of Select and Common Councils:--Gentlemen--The undersigned Committee, appointed under a resolution of Councils adopted on the 11th inst., to inquire into the number of volunteers reported by the Deputy Marshals as mustered into the service of the United States, beg leave to report that they have carefully attended to the duty imposed upon them. Your Committee are of the opinion that no reliance can be placed upon the return made by the Deputy Marshals, nor do we believe their returns include fifty per cent. of the men who have enlisted from our city. Your Committee have had recourse to the only proper source for correct information by applying to the United States officer who is authorized to muster into service, and we take great pleasure in stating that Colonel RUFF, the officer in charge of this branch of the service, submitted to the inspection of your Committee the muster-roll and abstract records which contained a list of all privates mustered into service, with the names of Captain and Colonel commanding each regiment. The following list will show the number of volunteers mustered into service by Colonel RUFF:--
