Terry, com manding, the following regiments: Cavalry-Second and Seventh regi ments, twenty-four troops. Infantry-Third, Fifth, Eleventh, Fif teenth, Seventeenth, Eighteenth and Twenty-fifth regiments, seventy com panies. Artillery-Light Battery F, Fourth regiment. Allowing seventy men to each cavalry roop, seventy-five to the light battery, nd fifty men to each infantry company he total strength of enlisted men and on-commissioned officers would be ,255. The allowance to troops and corn anies is large enough to include the egimental bands and members of the on-commissioned staff. If each regi ment had its full complement of ofmeers present for duty there would be, in the department-excluding officers attached to the department headquarters, 95 sec ond lieutenants, 114 first lieutenants, ninety-five captains, thirteen majors, 9 lieutenant colonels and 9 colonels-335 in .all. Each cavalry regiment has 14 first and 12.second lieutenants, and each infantry regiment 12 firsts and 10 sec onds. A cavalry regiment has three majors and an infantry regiment one. The extra first are the regimental staff officers--adjutants and quartermasters. Each battery has one second and two first lieutenants. If all the commis sioned officers and enlisted men were on duty, therefore, the department could show a total strength of 4,590-a far 4 larger number than any other depart ment could muster.
