oss to one million eighty-five thousand eight hundred dollars. The whole number of drafted men, and substitutes for drafted men, who were sent to camp at Long Island, was 3,068. Of these, 2,720 were assigned and sent to regiments in the front, 224 were organized as a provost guard for duty at the camp. Of the whole number, 124 deserted. Of the drafted men or substitutes, 73 were colored, who were sent to the Fifty-fourth Regiment.

Thus six months of pay will, under the promised order, be made at one time. The question as to their pay previous to Jan. 1, 1864, is still unsettled; although, from a conversation I had with the Attorney-General, I think we shall have his Jan. 1, 1864, is still unsettled; although, from a conversation I had with the Attorney-General, I think we shall have his opinion before long. I requested him to give an opinion at that time. This he declined to do, on the ground that the request did not come from the President.
