Previous to the President's calls of July and August, 1862, no fixed district or town system for recruiting men for the military service had been formed by either the Commonwealth or by the General Government, and no system of local credits had been arranged, by which we could tell how many men had entered the service from any particular city or town. True, the names of the men in the service were upon the muster-rolls of each company and regiment, and copies of them were in the offices of the Adjutant-General of the State, and the

and in case the charges against the city exceeds its credits, the treasurer is directed to pay such excess to the treasurer of the Commonwealth; and in case the credits exceed the charges, the treasurer of the city is authorized to receive such excess from the treasurer of the Commonwealth, and to give a receipt in full. The city-treasurer's report, made in compliance with the above-named act, showed that the number of three-years men, under the two calls of the President in the months of July and August, 1862, to whom bounties were paid, was three hundred and eighty-six (386); number of nine-months men to whom bounties were paid, one hundred and sixty-two (162), making a total of five hundred and forty-eight (548).

Campbell, Merritt Torrey, Samuel W. Lincoln, Albert Dyer, Merritt Jones, and Joseph Sears. The town-clerk and town-treasurer during the same period was Freeman Hamlin.

Two meetings were held in July and August, 1862, and it was voted to pay a bounty of one hundred dollars to each volunteer who would enlist to fill the quota of the town. The immediate effect of which was that three persons enlisted for three years, and eighteen for nine months service. The town continued to furnish her quotas all through the war. Plainfield furnished sixty-one men for the war, which was a surplus of seven over and above all demands. Three were commissioned officers. The whole amount of money approp
