We have not been able to obtain the votes of this town in relation to the war, nor who were the town officers in 1865, which we regret. Marion furnished about one hundred men, and had a surplus of ten at the end of the war over and above all demands. Two were commissioned officers. The whole amount of money appropriated and expended by the town on account of the war, exclusive of State aid, was four thousand two hundred and twenty-five dollars and forty-five cents ($4,225.45). The amount of money raised and expended by the town during the war for State aid to soldiers' families, and repaid by the Commonwealth, was as follows: In 1861, $86.57; in 1862, $724.00; in 1863, $1,115.00; in 1864, $1,330.00; in 1865, $478. Total amount, $3,733.57. The ladies of Marion, we are briefly informed, ‘contributed money and clothing for the sick and wounded.’
