The report of Adjutant General
, Kenney hw been prepared andwül be
fubmitted to the Legislature. The f ol
lowing is a summary of it:
The strength of tfie national guard,
"»per the returns Just made, 1s 567
officers and enlisted men, organized
Into one regiment of infantry, (eight
companies), and one squadron of
! cavalry, (two troops). I am of opin
he ; Ion, and would most respectfully
recommend that the present
tion of the Infantry should bo
by abolishing tho existing regimental
formation, and Instead a formation of
two battalions of four companies each
be made. This oould be done, so that
Companies A, C, Fand H, ol
ton and Now Cast
, First Battalion, and
&ex oompaniea,B, D, E and G, would
j constitute the Second Battalion, each
the'ftf which to be commanded by a
1 Ueu tenant-colonel. Then going a step
i farther and forming the two battalions
and tho squadron into a brigade, would
mako the most perfect organization
! that could bo had.
I The law limiting the strength of the
ftoard to ton (10) companies should be
changed, and the limit made n the
