Jacksonville, Fla., March 3, 18G4.
Dear Rettjbmcaw: On the evening of
the 23d olt. the 13th Ind. embarked on the !
steamer Peconic, at Pannel Landing, Fol
ly Island, and moved to Stono Inlet and
dropped anchor to remain over night. At
day break on the 24th we weighed anchor,
and sun np found us on the bosom of the
broad Atlantie, steering our course in a
southerly direction. The sea was some-
what rough, and our old craft went pitch
ing along like a wild fawn jonipitig over
logs, and the consequences' were, half the
men on board were very soon dividing
their breakfast with the sharks, &nd curs
ing the man that wrote "Life on the ocean
wave." We traveled all day, and until 4
o'clock on the morning of the 25th, when
we again dropped anchor at tho mouth of
St. John's River, Florida. At sun up we
started up the river, and at 10 o'clock we
landed at this place and went into camp.
On the first inst. General Gilmore arrived
hero and reviewed the troops at 9 o'clock,
A. M., and immediately after review there
was heavy tiring heard up the river, and
we were ordered to take onr places in the
trenches late in the afternoon the firing
ceased, and our forces that bad been engag
ed returned to camp bringing with them
over 50 prisoners, and the rebels retired,
evidently glad to get away. Oar loss was
not more than 10 or 12 killed and wound
ed. The enemy's loss I could not learn.
To-day all signs'indicate that the enemy
has disappeared from our front, and we
are again in camp, snugly stowed away in
our little shelter tents.
The weather here is very changeable,
the days being so intensely hot that we ac
tually 8ufTer with heat, and then the nights
are so cold that frost falls, which is also
disagreeable when we are on picket; but,
notwithstanding all this, I do not know of
a single man in the reg't., being on the
sick report, and all of tho troops are in the
best of spirits. Jacksonville was once a
nice to vn and evidently a nice place to
live. Beforo (he war it contained 2,100
inhabitants, several large churches, a gas
factory and many magnificent dwellings,
and was the mo9t extensive commercial
town in the state of Florida, bot about a
year ago the town was totally destroyed by
the 1st S. C (colored) Regiment.

Eeitor Repidlicax: I am very glad
to learn through the medium of your pa
per that onr much loved Captain has ar
rived safe amongst his friends onca more,
and I sincerely hope he will receive the
honor and respect that is doe him, from
all loyal men and women of bis acquaint
ance. I do not mean to say his sufferings
and privations while in Libby prison enti
tle him to a place in your hearts, bat his
heroic deeds on the bnttle fields, which
have been overlooke, combined with the
ten months sufferings he has nndergone,
certainly doe, and I do hope that party
prejudices may not be allowed to mar his
pleasure while amongst yon. At the bat
tle of Miii frciboro he distinguished him-
elf bravely, not by taking refuge behind a
tree a? many commanders did, but by aid
ing his boys in loading their guns, and al
so arming himself with agnn and catridge
box which he picked up on the battle field
and nseJ it with a coolness worthy of no
tice, notwithstanding he was the only
commissioned officer we had at the time,
onr captain being killed early in the morn
ing. At Day's Gap, Ala., he aleo acted
with the same cool and determine 1 spirit,
his every act and word giving new life and
energy to his almost worn ont men on
that occasion, and alter a successful chargo
on Roddy's men Capt. Matt Boyd again
possessed himself a carbine and the ammu
nition belonging to it, and used it the
same night in our three hours fight at
Crooked creek against Forrest and his men.
At the same time I saw officers looking ont
for places of safety for themselves leaving
their men to themselves to fight or run.
Our company is frequently called the
copperhead company. This nickname has
been given by some one whose loyalty U
exhibited more by words than deeds, and
who cannot this day show any better re
cord than we at a company can with a
very few exceptions. But I do net think
the entire company should be thus brand
ed on their account. And now, my dear
Repnblican, and fiiends of the Union cause,
and of those engaged in it, and especially
for the sake of those who love Captain
Boyd for his real worth as an officer, do
everything to make him happy while with
you and assure him that we are ever rea ly
to receive bim again and will willingly
follow him through any danger necessary,
bot hope we may never be under the pain
fnl necessity of delivering him np again to
The boys of this detachment are enjoy
ing themselves very well. Moat of us in
addition to doing our duty are making S40
per month, which is very acceptable. I
cow conclude with wishing the Union
cause every success at home, and I assure
yon we will do all we can to sustain it in
the field.
I Yours for the present and the success of
i law and order, Rob't Fryab.

Provost Marshall General's Office
Washington, D. (J., Sept. 14, 1863
His Excellency, Oliver P. Morton, Gover
nor of Indiana, Indianapolis, Indiana
SlR I have the honor lO inform VOn i
that the State of Indiana stands credited I
upon the books of the Adjutant General of .
tho Army, with an excess of 28.501 over
- -
all calls for troops, in 1861, 1862, and
1863, np to the 4th day of June.
The quota of the State for the present
draft is 26,833. The excess of troops
heretofore furnished by it, over the quota
is 1,668. There will, therefore, be no
draft in Indiana under the present call for
troops, and the number of 1,668 will stand
to its credit in the future demands of the
General Government.
1 am, Sir, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
James B. Fby,
Provost Marshall General.
On the 19th day of October, 1863, the
President of the United States issued a
proclamation calling for 30 ),000 volun
teers. On the 21st day of Octol ar, 1863.
I received a dispatch from the Secretary of
War, assigning the quota of Indiana, un
der this call, at 18,997 men. This quota
was apportioned among the various coun
ties of the State upon the basis of the set
tlement made between the State and tho
War Department, in September, taking
into account the number of enlistments
made between the date ot the settlement,
and the apportionment of the quota, as far
as they could be ascertained.
On the 1st day of February, 1864. the
President issued another call for 200,000
additional men. Adopting the ratio nnder
the call of October, 1863, the quota of In
diana under this call would he 12.C65 men,
which, added to the quota under the call
of October, would be in the aggregate 31,
662 men. Immediately after the last call
was made Adjutant General Noble visited
Washington by my direction to effect a
settlement between the State and War De
partment if possible, and ascertain the
number of men already iurnished, and the
number that was still required from the
The War Department was not prepared
to make the settlement or give the required
information, and General Noble returned
without accomplishing his mission. Gen
eral Love returned from Washington last
week whither he had gone on the same bu
siness. He brought with him the adjust
ment which will be found hereinafter in
the letter addressed to Colonel Baker, but
as it was not officially famished and was
subject to revision, no publication was
made. Yeiterday Colonel Baker, the As
sistant Provost Marshal General, received

The surplus ol these credits over quotas

the credit of the districts and sub-districts,
on future calls.
I am, Sir, very respectfully.
Your obedient servant,
James B. Frt,
Provost Marshal General.
From this it will be seen that Indiana,
on the first day of February last had fur
nished her qnota nnder all calls, and had
an excess of 7.330 men, not including re-
enlisted veterans. To this excess ia to be !
a ided the number of men mustered into i
the old and new regiments since the 1st of
Pahmar and thft number Kiinnoead to ha i
a vi , . ri
enlisted not mustered in, ana tne numoer
of re-enlisted veleraus, in ull estimated at
16.000 men, making the total excess about
24.000 men, which number w.l probably
be largely increased by the 1st of April
Tbe settlement made in September was i ment of the Whington correspondent of struggle and confined themsel res to eow
t satisfactory, aa I believed that n'l j tbe Cincinnati Gazette, usually careful and i ' PrfiJ"on8' stealthy aaannlta npoai
credit had not been ci.cn for recruits
which had ioinoi the army in the field,
and tbe original basis itself waa incorrect.
But I had no data, nor did it exist in the
War Department, upon which to correct
it. In tbe present adjustment, it will be
perceived that the September settlement is
entirely ignored.
On tbe first day of March Colonel Ba
ker received from the Provost Marshal
General following dispatch:
Washington, Feb. 29. 1864.
Col. Conrad Baker, A. A. P. M. Gen
Be fully prepared to commence the
draft ob (10) tenth March, and to make
it in every sub-district which shall not
have raised its qnota before March 1st.

may be deducted after draft commences.
