TnatfTOK, N. J April 25.-OOV. Voorhee left
for his home In Elizabeth this evening bofore
tho details of tho President's call for volunteers
had been received. AdjU-Oen. Stryker re
ceived word by telegraph that threo Infantry
regiments would be Now Jersey's auota under
tho call, nnd to-morrow morning the Oovomor
and State Mllitiry Hoard will make the neces
sary arrangements td supply tho men.
At a confortneo hold last week the question
of bow tho State's quota was to be filled was
decided. The questions considered were
wholher a general call for volunteers should
bo Issued, whether n provisional brlgado or
regiment should bo formed, or whether regl
inciiU should bo called nut In thatr entirety. It
was decided that tho last preposition was the
host. At that tlmo It was tho understanding tlutt
less than 2,000 men would ho noedod from Now
Jersey, t'ndsr the President's proclamation
about 3.000 men will bo required, and the Gov
ernor In undecided wholher tho State ought to
be credited with the naval reserves already
In scrvlco and thoso under dotnll, tind whother
Todlt will bo givnn to Capt. Whitehead's bat
tery of light nrtlllory. Capt. Whitehead, with
his gun Bquad as a nucleus, has organized a bat
tery of IS I men.
Three regiments will bo needed under tho
call. Tho Corernnr sayn ho has decided which
relmtnts he will summon Into service, but he
declined to make publlo his selections until
they are embodied In an official order. It Is
general!? understood that tho First Ileglment
of Newark will be ono of those chefen, ns Col,
Kdwnril A. Campbell Is tho senior Colonol in
the National Ounrd. It helonf-s to the First
llrlgado. nil the regiment! of which are com
Kised of twelvo conipanlos, tho throe battalion
formation of the regular nnny.
The Third llcslment of Kllrnbeth will prob
ably bo ono of tho other rcgimonts, nnd tho Sec
ond Itcplment, fit Pnttoreon, or tho Sixth, at
Camden, will probably be the third. It was
decided nt last wcek'e conference that any do
flrleney In tho rogltnents would bo supplied by
recruiting from the other rogimentt nnd from
old Guardsmen who hnvo betn discharged from
the sorvlco. It wua tho sentiment of tho mili
tary authorities that tho best-drilled mon that
could be obtained should bo sent Into the ser
The objection to formlne provisional regi
ments or battalions was that It would tend to
disrupt tho organizations from which the men
were drafted. The Governor said that Uio
present oflleera of the regiments nnd com
panies would bo trotnlncd wherever they dcslro
to bo. Major-Gen. Joseph V. Plumo of New
ark, who commands the New Jersey National
Guard, has exprcssod a desire to enter the scr
vlco and Is willing to servo as a Brlgadlor-Gon
eral. In view of the fact that New Jersey will
furnish throe regiments, or a completo bri
gade. It Is probable thai the Governor, aided
by Gon. Sewall, Vice-President llobnrt, Attor
noy-Gcncral Griggs, and tho New Jersey Con
gress delegation, will try to Induco President
McICInley to commission Gen. Plumo ui tho
commanding ofllcor of the New Jersey brigade.
Tho New Jersoy volunteers will be moblllred
on tho camp grounds at Sea Girt Immediately.
Quartermaster-General Donnelly had a forco of
men nt work there to-day laying out the camp
and erecting the tents.
Sinco thcro has been a probability of a call fo
volunteers all the New Jersey Guardsmen hnvo
undergono a medical examination and thoso
physically Incompotent for service worn
dropped. Gen. Stryker Bays they will again bo
examined at Soa Girt by regular army medical
examiners. The work of recruiting to Mil the
vacancies will go on at different points in the
Capt Clayton J. Bailey to-night had secured
the signatures of fifty-three volunteers. He
wants 100 and when he has secured them will
offer them to the Governor. All tho men. It Is
understood, will bo required to enlist Individu
ally. State Camp, Ssa Gitit, N. J., April 29. Tho
preparations being made at the StatVT-unp for
tho reception of the National Gua&jraenwbo
will be mobilized here are unusually active.
Quartermaster-General Donnelly arrived this
mornlnr- with Col. Gcorgo A. Felton of Camden
and tho work of getting tho camp in readiness
was commenced at once. There aro thousands
of tents on the grounds. It la expected that
there will be accommodations for 0,000 Guards
men and a number of volunteers. Tho club
house at tho camp will probably be converted
Into a temporary arsenal. The men will prac
tice at the Title butts every day. To secure a
higher rate of proficiency tho soldiers will shoot
at floating targets off shore.

Ills Itespoasa to tbe Secretary or War's Reqnl
altlun nr Troope.
Boston, April 25. Gov. Wolcott received
atelegramto-day from tho War Department to
the effect that Massachusetts would be expected
to furnish four regiments of Infantry and
three heavy batteries under the President's
call. The telogram Is probably the tame as that
sent to the Governor of ovcry State. It in
quires what equipment, arms, and ammunition
are on hand, and what are needed, and asks when
(the troops will be ready to be mustered into
the United Stales service, and says that tho
details will follow by mall. Gov. Wolcott re
plied to Secretary Alger as follows:
"Your telegram received at 7 P. M. Four
regiments of Infantry and three heavy bat
terles of artlllory are ready for lmmcdljto ser
vice. For Infantry tbcro are sufllcient equip
ments, ammunition, arms, blankets, and tents
on hand. Same for beavy batteries artillery,
except that wo have'no heavy guns or ninmunl
tlou. I await details by mall.
As tho Massachusetts quota, according to the
stttteraontlrecently given out from Washington,
is 4,272 men, this order Is not quite plain to
Gov. Wolcott. As the militia is now ar
ranged four regiments nnd three bttteries
moan only 3,295 men or 1,017 short of the
quota. Just what regiments und batteries
will be solected to fill the War Department's
demand has not been decided, and In any event
It Is certain that tbe number of batteries men
tioned Is insufllclent by many hundreds of men
to man the harbor defences here.

Boston, April 25. In pursuance of his plan
that Massachusetts mllltla should be used for
tbe defence of his own State, Gov. Wolcott
Issued a statement to-night In which hosald;
"In view of the possibility that an Important
theatre of war may be on or near tho New Eng
land coast, and that a number of troops sub
stantially equal to tho present mllltla force of
the Commonwealth will be necessary for the

tho councllof officers to make publlo announce

to the olllelency of tho service to encourage or

connected with organizations, although oppor
tunities should also be given to individual mem
bers of the mllltla to volunteer, subject to a
proper consideration of the welfare of the State.

JlAnntsncno, April 25,-On Thursday next
the entire division of tho National Guard ot
Pennsylvania will bo concentrated at Mount
Gretna. Oov. Hastings issued orders at 9:20
to-night. Immediately tho instructions wero
telegraphed to tho various brigade and regi
mental commanders. Under the coll of tho
President tho total strength of Pennsylvania's
quota will bo 10,800 men. consisting of ten regi
ments of twelvo companies each nnd four bat
tories of artillery, 20i officers and men each.
Each company must hnvo not less than Bl and
not more than 101 men. oxcluslve of tbo officers.
The total strength of oach rogiment will be 1,233
officors and men.
Arrangements have been made for tho trans
portation of tho Guard to Mount Gretna, and
the various commands will at once got in shapo
to muster tho mon Into tho United States service
at that place. The most Important matter dls
cussod to-night Is the turning down of the throe
iroopjof cavalry and iho three light batteries,
all of which expected to be called Into servlco at
once. Under the call of tho Secretary of War thoro
will be neod for but ten Colonels, and nB there are
fifteen in tho Guard flvo will be compelled to re
main on waiting orders. Tho flvo Junior Colonels
are Corscn of the Thirteenth, Glenn of tho
Fourteenth. Ralston of the Third, Washabaugh
of tho Sixth, and Dougherty of the Ninth.
Thero will also be set aside ten Majors, thirty
Captains, thirty First and thirty Second Lieu
tenants, fifteen Sergeant Majors and fifteen Ad
jutants, beside other officers. In fact, the whole
Held and staff of the five oxtra regimental or
ganizations will bo left at home unless in the
cenornl reorganization at Mount Gretna there
shall bo onough vacancies treated through disa
bilities and other causes to make room for these
The chances are there will bo an opportunity
for overy officer and enlisted man to go tn tbo
front. There are zome officers In tbe present or
ganization who are not physically able to stand
tho strain, and their places will doubtless bo
taken by tho rooro able-bodied officers in tho
oxtra list. There seems, however, to be no
present prospect of either the cavalry or the ar
tillery, as nt present organized, getting to the
front. This will bo a great disappointment for
the City Troop, the Governor's Troop, and tho
Sheridan Troop, three organizations equal to
any in tbo Guard of the United States.
It is evident thnt Gov. Hastings will not make
any attempt to havo tho War Department
chango Its programme with respect to Pennsyl
vania. When ho was asked to-night about a
probable modification of tbo call from Washing
t- n in order to tiko In branches omitted, he said
that the orders would be obeyed and gave no
hint of any attempt to change tbem.
Under the call thero will bo 120 companies,
and as there arc In tho present Guard 130 corn,
panics, excluslvo of the Gray Invincible, tbo
only organization of colored troops. It Is
clear to what extent the company offi
cers will have to bo dropped. As there
must bo eighty-one men in every company
sent to tho front It will require atleqettwoor
three thousand voluntccrn In excels of tbe pres
ent total strength of tho National Guard to fill
Pcnnshanla'squota. It miidtalsobo remem
bered that many men of the Guard will not be
nblo to enlist for a Cuban war. A weeding
process will take placo nt Mount Gretna, wherd
United States officers will subject tho Guards
men to an examination. While there is euro to
bo dlsnppolntiiientovor the way In which troops
will be sent to tho front tho National Guard of
Pennsjlvnnln Is made of tho right stuff and
tbcro will bo no mutiny.
Attorney-General McCormlck was asked to
night whether tho Guard would be ordered be
yond tbe boundaries of tho Unltod Slates. He
said that question might bavo to bo met later,
and bo preferred not todlscuts It at this time.
Ab soon as tho Governor received the official
notlllcatlon from the Secretary of War ho
asked for Information regarding the total quota,
tho number of companies to n, rogiment, the
strength of each regiment and strength of each
battery, and, h-vlug received tbo answer,
be telegraphed Secretary of War Alger thut
the troop would bo mobilized at Mount Gretna
on Thursday. He also gavo Gen. Alger full
particulars as to the amount of ammunition,
number of guns, tents, and camp equipage, and
said that there Is ready for muster threo troops
of cavalry, sixty men each, fully equipped; thiee
light batteries, sevcntr-slx men each, fully
equipped, with three broech-loadlng guns to

IlAnrroitD, April 25. Gov. Cooko received

London a half hour earlier. It Is understood
here thnt tho call w as for ono regiment of Infan
try, one light battery and two heavy bnttcrlc.
In regard to tho lattor the War Department at
Washington must be misinformed, for thero has
never boon any heavy battery connected with
tho State mllltla. Tbo nearest approach to such
a battery has betn at tbo State camp grounds at
Nlantle, where there are a fow 10-Inch guns and
inoitars which, during tho annual encampments,
ore used for practlco woric by dolalls from the

Chicago, April 25. A despatch reoeived hero
from Springfield at 9 o'clock to-nlgbt brings the
information that Gov. Tanner has issued orders
for the mobilization of tho First and Second
Brigades, I. N. G at Camp Lincoln, Just out
sitlo the 'jtato capital, at once. The troops nro
directed to be In camp nnt later than Wednes
day noon. The First Brigade Is composed of
the Chicago reolmcnts-the First, Second and
tho Poventh and tho Ninth Battalion of colorod
At tho nrmortos of these organizations all is
bustle and hurry to-night. Arrangements havo
been mado to send tho mllltla of the First Brl
gado to Sprliigflold by the Illinois Central Itall
rond, starting at 11 o'clock to-morrow morning.
Possibly nil will not bo able to got away then,
hut the entire brigndn will be In Springfield by
daylleht on Wednesday. Tho Second llrlgnde ta
composod bf companies nnd regiments from tho
sinnller cities and towns of tho htato. It Is
thought that It will require ten days to two
weeks to get the Stato mllltla ready for war.
Gen. McNultn. who Is named as most likely
to bo appointed to tbo commnnd of the Illinois
volunteer forces, nrrlvod from Washington nt
6 o'clock this afternoon. The naval reserves
received a message from the capital yesterday
that Gen. McNulta had been working in their
behalf in tho Navy Dopartment and that ho
brings deflnlto reports as to tho place to which
tho Government will assign tho Illluols naval
Gen. McNulta's friends believe he will ac
cept tho offer to lead the Illinois National Guard
or voluntocrs to tbo front. Gov. Tanner ex
pressed his Indignation against the Washing
ton legislators who wero Instrumental in fram
ing tho Volunteer bill in such manner that he

sponse the regimental, troop, and battery com
manders summoned their men, and by nlrhUall
practically the entire military force of tho State
was under arms.
Reports reoeived from tho principal parts of
the State show an enthusiastic spirit, and with
nnd without authority men aro forming new
mllltla companies and recruiting the old com
panies to their limit. At Dayton the superin
tendent of tho publlo schools is forming a regi

Considerable indignation has been aroused bo
cause of the action ot fifteen members of the

this afternoon fixing Indiana's quota of troopa
under the President's call for volunteers at four

at once Issuod a proclamation to tho people of tho
State calling Into tho United States service
the First, Second, Third mm Fourth regiments

lates that oach reglmont must consist of 1.000
men. nnd orders them into camp nt the State
fair grounds, near this city, at onco.
Tho call Includes all tho regiments of the
National Guard aud two of tbo three artillery

may fall short of Iho required number when
they go into camp hero to-morrow. All of tho

the full complement of mon, but under the rigid
examination which will be enforced tit tho camp

Tho Governor has glvon orders that tho ex

Tho armories in this city wore all crowded
last night Ths men were anxious to learn
what orders bad come for them. They had heard
of the transmission of the President's oall for
volunteers to ths Governors ot tho States and
were anxious to know what disposition had
been made of the organizations of the National
Guard, They were delighted to learn that tho
President had expressed a wish to have each
Suite's quota mado up as far as possible ot mem
bers of tho organized mllltla. This they re
garded as ovldence that their organizations are
to be presorred so far as possible, and unless
the men find something in the text ot the com
munication to change their belief thers will
undoubtedly bo a prompt response when they
aro called upon to voluntoor.
Tbore was a good deal of uncertainty In some
of the armories, and the men were vory out
spoken in their lntohtlons. If they were allowed
to keep their regiments together, they said, they
would volunteer: otherwise they would not
This Is the attitude ot the National Guard of
this city to-day nnd It is doubtful If anything
oan mako tho men withdraw from tho stand
they have taken.
No artillery Is Included In New York's quota,
nnd the men of tho three batteries in this olty
wore badly dlsappolntod last night. Tholr feel
ings aro not in tbe least allayed by tbe proba
bility thnt thoy will bo called upon later on for
const defono work.
Gen. Itoo didn't return to this city from Albany
yesterday, and no orders were received by his
aides, who had charge of his headquarters In
the Stewart building.
Tho company rooms nt the Seventh Reglmont
wero all crowded last night. No orders came,
and when Artjt. Weaver went homo at lOo'clock
tbo man came to tho conclusion that none would
como nnd followed suit. The mon of tho Seventh
Regiment are as anxious for service nnd as
ready to volunteer as ever, but only on tho con
dition that they go to war as tho Sevonth. It Is
doubtful if fifty men In the organization would
voluntoor on any other condition.
Ilrig.-Gen. Goorga Mooro Smith ot the Fifth
Brigade was at hcadquartora In tho armory at
Park arcnuo and Thirty-fourth street last
night, tic said ho was groatly pleased with tho
plan adopted at Washington by which the New
York mllltla was to bo called Into servlco. He
did not knnw by what system the National
Guard would bo taken into tho United States
servlco until he read tho late despatches from
" Our Guardsmon,"'he said. " will be called on
the lines which to me appear to be tbe most sat
isfactory. Had my opinion been asked, I could
not bavo suggestod anything better. I
believe the manner of summoning tho mll
ltla will do away with all causes of dissatis
faction which it was reported was likely
to provall among the militiamen. This
supposed dissatisfaction, in my opinion, was
greatly cxaggoratod. I believe a large percent
age of tbo men will respond to tho call when
thoy find that the integrity of their organiza
tions Is to(bo preserved. No man, of courso, is
obliged to go if ho iloej not choose to do so. Tho
contract he mado with the Stato when ho Joined
the militia Is qulto different from the contract
he makes with the United States Government
when ho enlists to go to Cuba."
Gen. Smith said ho had received no instruc
tions from Gov. Black. Ho expected such in
structions to arrlvo very shortly.
" I f oel sorry for Capt, Wilson, whose battery
Is not to bo culled Into fcrvicc," tho General
said, "i know he will be keenly disappointed."
Col. Groono ot tho Seventy-first regiment went
to tho armory early in the evening. " I bellcvo
this plan will glvo satisfaction to thscntiro body
of tbo mllltla," ho said.
Most of tho members of the Seventy-first vis
ited tho armory in the evening to learn If thero
was any probability of assembling during tbo

roauy, and bad mado preparations to loavo tliclr
business and ffu to tbo front. It ii n great dis
appointment for them. Their batteries un
equal toanvtblngln Uncle1 bam'srcsularariuy."
Tho General s id ho did not understand why
tho Federal Government did not call for somo
New York artillery.
"They must have mado their artillery schema
at haphazard. They call for four batteries from
California, and that State has not a single bat
tery in service. Now York Htnlo has flvo
batteries and -l"'. nrtillanmpn. and tbo
Government docs not call for u single bat
tery. Maryland has no artillery, but tbo
Government calls for four bittcrleu. Seven
States hnving no artillerv are called upon lo
furnish sixteen batteries, nnd twcnty-slxStatis
having flfty-ono battorics aro not cillod on to
furnish any. And yet nono but trained men can
handle n battery. They must havo at loast four
months' experience beforo either tbe men or the
horses are competent to norl; tho guns."
Gen. Carroll said ho had sent a porsonal tele
gram to AdJt.-Gon. Corbln nt Washington, ask
ing why tho New York urtllicrv had been Ig
