A., of the number of men by cities and towns furnished by Massachusetts for the war, as it is contrary to the rules of the Department to furnish copies of such papers. We have therefore been compelled to be content with the returns made by the city and town officers, in 1866, to a committee of the Massachusetts Legislature, of which the Hon. Tappan Wentworth, of Lowell, was chairman. Those returns are neither complete nor entirely accurate, although they approximate to both: one thing is greatly in their favor, they do not exaggerate, nor claim more than they are entitled to; on the contrary, they fall short of what is justly their due, a discrepancy which can easily be accounted for by the probable fact that they make no claim for men which were credited to the State at large, and a majority of the towns have not taken into account the surplus of men who

The amount of money raised and expended by the city during the war for State aid to soldiers' families, and which was repaid by the Commonwealth, was as follows: In 1861, $9,726.19; in 1862, $39,143.75; in 1863, $46,370.11; in 1864, $55,000.00; in 1865, $36,000.00. Total amount, $186,240.05. The ladies of Roxbury were very active in their good works for the soldiers and their families. On the 16th of December, 1861, Miss Anna C.

This society, of which Mrs. Henry Bartlett was the president, held weekly meetings for nearly four years. They raised the sum of $7,860.00, and forwarded to hospitals and camps through the Sanitary Commission 12,180 garments; besides books, newspapers, wines, fruits, vegetables, bed linen
