gnrd to ihe mustering of (ho militia responding
to tne can for one hundred days' scrv lea still
continues to exist here.
It has already created much hoiirtburiiinj and
disappointment nmong the hardy yeomanry whs
are uocking to tbe defense of our border.
That the whole matter may be fully under
stood, it is ouly necessary to state tho order of
the War Department, viz :
"No fractions of companies can. bo mustered
iiuo mo service.
This order is rigidly adhered to by the com
manding ollleir at this post, the result of which
is tb at there ure more thiiu 2000 troops hero, in
compai ies from of 25 to 75. If these men wore
mustered In they would bo consolidated Into
companies-, after allowing their olllcers time lo
recruit them to the maximum strength; but
under Hit present condition of the order Uoted,
their service is lost to the Government, aud they
ate fat becoming demorallied.
This stntemeut is due to Governor Curtin, as
many of the. volunteers and their friends imigino
(bat he is responsible for tbe present state of af
fairs. The contrary is tbe case, as be has ex
hausted every appeal and all tbe resources at bis
command to secure tho mustering of the troops
now hero with a view to the encouragement of
Ihe volunteering of a still larger number.
