ay of August last a requisition was made upon me by the Secretary of War for 5,340 slaves, to work upon the fortifications around Richmond. Copies of the papers are herewith submitted to your consideration, and I particularly invite your attention to the draft made upon the several counties. The apportionment upon the counties seems to be entirely arbitrary, and bears very unequally. In some cases five per cent. of the slaves is called for, and in other cases less than one per cent. Thus, Amelia, with upwards of 7,000 slaves assessed with taxes in 1862, is required to furnish 50, while Alleghany, with less than 700, is required to furnish 30. The county of Albemarle, with 12,681, is called upon for 200, while Brunswick, with 9,212, is called upon for 250. The county of Augusta, with 4,460 is called upon for 80, while the county of Rockingham, with 2,164 is called upon for 100. Hanover, with 8,621, is called upon for 80, while Prince Edward, with 6,998, is called upon for 150. Th
