This opinion of the Supreme Court, Governor Banks said, has been approved by the Legislaturetend the area of its domain. The views of Governor Banks at this time are also important and interebe said, however, in this connection, that Governor Banks, upon retiring from office, did not deem iter retiring from the gubernatorial chair, Governor Banks made arrangements to remove to Illinois, hiven these extracts from the addresses of Governors Banks and Andrew, that their official opinions to which office he had been appointed by Governor Banks; he was also acting Quartermaster and InspColonel Sargent had served on the staff of Governor Banks.

roops, and their organization and equipment, rendered a division of military duties, and the enlargement of the staff of the Governor, a necessity. By law, the Adjutant-General, in time of peace, was Inspector-General and acting Quartermaster-General of the Commonwealth. In time of war, the triple duties of these offices could not be performed by one person; and therefore Colonel John H. Reed, who had experience in military affairs, and had served as senior aide-de-camp on the staff of Governor Banks, was commissioned, on the nineteenth, Quartermaster-General of Massachusetts, with the rank of brigadier-general. General Reed entered upon his duties immediately, and relieved the Adjutant-General of all quartermaster's duties and responsibilities. Many of the duties had previously been performed, during the week, by the aides-de-camp of the Governor, and by private gentlemen, who had volunteered their services. From the hour the telegram was received by the Governor, the pressure

The meeting was addressed by John C. Park, ex-Governor Banks, George S. Hillard, and Thomas H. Russell in speeches filled with patriotic sentiments and earnest appeals to the judgment and conscience of the people. We now return to the State House, where the work of fitting out regiments, organizin
make appointments to fill them. Within the past week, I have received notices from Major-General Butler, from Fort Monroe; from Colonels Couch, Cowdin, and Cass, and Lieutenant-Colonel Blaisdell, at Washington; and from Colonel Gordon and Major-General Banks, at Harper's Ferry,—of vacancies existing among the officers of their respective commands, and I am anxious to fill them, if I have the power to do so: for delay in filling them is prejudicial in various ways, which I need not mention. the regiments with great spirit and cheerfulness. Major Dwight writes, I had the honor and pleasure to receive the Governor's proclamation for Thanksgiving. I give a short record of the day's celebration. Military duty was, by authority of General Banks, suspended. At ten A. M., we had the proclamation read, and religious service by the chaplain. The men afterwards sat down to dinner, which may be summed up as follows: turkeys 95, weight 997 1/2 pounds; geese 76, weight 666 pounds; chicken

Army of the Potomac at this time, failing in its object, —the capture of Richmond, —was falling back on Harrison's Landing, on the James River. The command of General Banks occupied the upper waters of the Potomac. The army under General Burnside had captured Newbern, and other important places in North Carolina, and was holding port to the Adjutant-General of the army, at Washington. The Forty-first Regiment, Colonel Chickering, left the State Nov. 5, and was ordered to report to Major-General Banks, at New York, who had superseded Major-General Butler in command of the Department of the Gulf, and who was then in New York, superintending the embarkationhers Massachusetts has sent. If it shall be necessary to send them immediately into the field, it is the desire of Maggi to be assigned to Sigel, and of Wells to Banks; and I should like to have their wishes gratified. Both these regiments would have gone a week ago, but for the delay in giving them their bounty and advance pay.
f we get authority from the President to muster a captain and four lieutenants to a battery, additional authority or permission is to be had from the War Department after the battery has left the State. The officers have been commissioned and mustered in, and they have been to the expense of buying uniforms and horses, have spent months and money in recruiting the company, and are two thousand miles from home; and they are to be mustered out. I have heard unofficially, that the order of General Banks to muster out two lieutenants in each battery has been rescinded by the War Department. I do not know that this information is reliable; but I think the order should be rescinded, and that our officers should no longer be subject to its requirements. The Governor directed the Adjutant-General to write to the Adjutant-General of the army, and represent the case to him; which he did on the same day. Referring to the letter of the 14th of May, from which we have quoted, he was directe

On July 1, General Banks, with his command, was in front of Port Hudson, ich was the base of supplies for the army, while General Banks was marching through Teche country to Alexandriaas ordered to proceed forthwith and report to Major-General Banks at Port Hudson. It there bore its share in tet, and proceeded to New Orleans to report to Major-General Banks the results of the unfortunate expedition. Wulf.

and barbarism, near the home of the arch-traitor, in the abiding-place of the social curse which has been the cause of all our woe, the tide of reverse was turned back, the men of the East and the men of the West fought side by side, the star of Banks and the star of Grant sent forth their mingled radiance. Unfriendly cabinets and aristocracies abroad caught the foreshadowing, and improved their speech, if not their wish. The free and loyal States at home have been elastic, progressive, deter just ended, on almost every field, and in every department of the army, where our flag has been unfurled,—at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Port Hudson, and Fort Wagner; at Chickamauga, Knoxville, and Chattanooga; under Hooker, Meade, Banks, Gilmore, Rosecrans, Burnside, and Grant. In every scene of danger and of duty,—along the Atlantic and the Gulf; on the Tennessee, the Cumberland, the Mississippi, and the Rio Grande; under Dupont, Dahlgren, Foote, Farragut, and Porter,—the sons<
your Excellency's permission, I left this city on the 18th of October, to visit our Massachusetts regiments and batteries in the field. I had been on duty at the State House almost without a day's relief for two years and a half: I now have the honor to report my experience during the three weeks I was absent. I left Boston by Fall River route for New York on the evening of the 18th ult., and arrived at the Astor House, New York, the next morning, where I had the pleasure of meeting Major-General Banks, who had recently arrived from the Department of the Gulf. There also was the body of Colonel George D. Wells, late of the Massachusetts Thirty-fourth Regiment, who had bravely fallen in battle; and kind friends were conveying it tenderly to its place of sepulture in the Old Bay State. During the forenoon, I called at the headquarters of Major-General Dix, to ascertain what decision had been made in regard to having the forts on the coast garrisoned with one year's troops, whose t
