COMMUNICATION
FROM THE GOVERNOR, ASKING FOR ADDITIONAL FORCE IN
THE OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL,

STATE OF NEW YORK:
EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT,

ALBANY, March 3, 1864.
To the Senate :

Since the passage, by the Congress of the United States, of the enrolment act of March 3, 1863, much anxiety has been felt by citizens of this State, relative to the quotas assigned to the several towns and cities of the State, under the several calls of the President for volunteers.

Thus far, only one draft has been actually made by the General Government under this act, and it is now understood that the result of this draft is to be credited upon the last call of the President for volunteers, bearing date February 1, 1864.

The desire to fill the quotas of the respective towns and cities has, since the passage of the enrolment act, led to active exertions in the procurement of volunteers, and large local bounties have in many localities been offered in addition to the State and General Government bounties.

Localities taxed to raise local bounties make every effort to obtain credit upon their respective quotas for all new volunteers, re-enlistments and enlistments in the regular army.

The clerical force in the Adjutant General's office has been inadequate to enable that official to open books of credit with the several towns, cities, counties, and Congressional districts of the State, for men furnished to the service. [Sentte, No. 51.)
