The Confederate authorities have made ft requisition upon the Slate for Two Thousand laborers monthly. The proportion of one-fourth heretofore called for, had failed to supply half of this number, lit >iew of this fact and the groat urgency of the demand for labor at this time, it is doomed expedient to shorten the internal between the calls, and increase the quota. This is tu> violation r.f the law. for it does not lix the quota of labor, nor the interval bi-twceu the calls, but prescribes that such proportion shall he called fur as will fill the rcqusition, giving thirty days notice. Each Division in the order lixed will 1*3 required to furnish this quota, and no injustice will bo dono to'nny. III. All parties, whether individuals or companies, who own or employ more than ono road hand, are required to furnish their quota, (one-half) unless relieved by detail from Department Headquarters. Tins can relieve only thoso bands permanently engaged on the specific work for which the detail was granted Commissioners of roads will givo their attention to this matter and report to tills office. IV. Great confusion exists from the imperfect man ner in which the unfiles of owners arc given to agents nt tho several depots. It is the duly of one, or riiore of the Commissioners, to be present to verify the quota of each owner, and prepare correct lists. Within live days after delivery on this cnll they will please forward to this office names of defaulters in their respective divisions of roads. R. B. JOHNSON, Agent) of the S(.ate of Soi Cn.
