Governor of Vermont. (search)
Message of the Governor of Vermont. --On the 22d inst., Gov. Rolbrook, of Vermont, was installed and sent his message into the Legislature. He estimates the total expenditure of the year for military purposes, including the national tax, which he recommends the Legislature to take measures for collecting, at $1,088.068. Five regiments of infantry are in the field, and one of cavalry is recruiting by authority of the War Department. To make up the full quota two more regiments must be raised, and additional legislation is necessary for this end. Governor Holbrook also hints at the propriety of allowing the company of sharp-shooters attached to Col. Berdan's command extra pay.
