[Endorsed.] Governor's Message, stating number of men and arms furnished C. States during the present war, Oct. 8, 1863.

Statement of the number of troops furnished the Confederate States by the State of Virginia as taken from the first rolls on file in the Adjutant and Inspector General's Office:

64 Reg'ts Infantry,52,496
20 Reg'ts Cavalry,14,175
2 Reg'ts Artillery,1,779
28 Battalions Cavalry, Infantry and Artillery,11,717
9 Battalions Artillery, Army No. Va.,4,500
214 Unattached Cos. Artillery, Infantry and Cavalry,18,248
Total number of men,102,915

Of the sixty-four Infantry Regiments, only sixty-one have rolls on file in this office, and only nineteen Cavalry Regiments. The rolls are very defective in all arms of the service. The above statement does not embrace the recruits or conscripts furnished by the State of Virginia, of which we have no returns.
