The seven original companies of this command were among the first three years volunteers raised in Massachusetts, that were mustered into the United-States service. While these infantry regiments were being organized and forwarded to the front, a battalion of infantry for three years service was organized, and sent to Fort Warren for garrison duty. It was composed of five companies, of which Francis J. Parker, of Boston, was commissioned major. It was on duty at Fort Warren, at the close of the year 1861. Two companies of sharpshooters, with telescopic rifles, were recruited at Lynnfield. The first company, under command of John Saunders, of Salem, was not attached to any regiment. It left the State for Washington on the 3d day of December, 1861, and was ordered to report to General Frederick W. Lander, who commanded a brigade near Maryland Heights, on the Upper Potomac.

Parker; and orders were received to recruit four new companies, and make it a regiment, which was speedily done. This was what was called afterwards th

In conclusion, he said, Let us pledge ourselves anew to defend the Constitution, and, in the presence of the great Webster, swear that we will give life, honor, and every thing else, in support of it, till it shall float in undimmed splendor over the whole country in peace and in honor. Judge Parker, of Cambridge, was the next speaker; and, in the course of his remarks, he took up the address drawn up and signed by the Governors of the loyal States, as agreed upon at Altoona, Pa., a few days preceding.

At this point, Mr. Saltonstall, of Newton, stepp

The highest compliment I can pay to its fervor and liberality is to say that it is consistent with the entire history of the municipality of Boston under your Honor's administration. The regiment here spoken of was the Thirty-second, of which Colonel F. J. Parker was the original colonel.
