Total $1,838,698 98

Besides this there are outstanding allowances not yet present-
ed at the Treasury, which will probably amount to $100,000
additional. These amounts do not include pay of the officers
and men, the pay rolls not having yet been presented or made
out. The Paymaster-general estimates the amount necessary
for pay alone, to the 1st of June, at $1,000,000, for troops now
in the field. Additional forces now called out will require more.
He also estimates that there will be required, for commutation
for clothing of the troops, and commutation for flirage for officers,
the sum of §841,000. Total required, $3,679,698 98.

General^ — I beg to communicate through you to Governor
Letcher, that I am forwarding to Winchester, with all despatch
possible, the arms atid machinery at this place, retaining only
such of the arms which are complete, and rescued from the burn-
ing as are thought necessary to equip the troops, imperft;ctly
armed as they rame in. There are now about thirteen hundred
men here, and I expect reinforcements to the number of five hun-
dred in a few hours, and I have information of about a thousand
now on the way. It is estimated by a number of the workmen
lately employed in the armory, who presented themselves to me
to-day as a committee, that it would take several months to re-
move the machinery and other public property from this point,
but I find they are much disaffected, being property holders, and
therefore disposed to exaggerate the difflculiies. I hope, how-
ever, that the interview impressed them with different views of
their own interests, that their labor which was their support, was
their most valuable interest. They will be needed wherever
their works may be removed. This 1 believe will induce them
to aid heartily in the purposes designed by the Executive. If
authorised to give them assurance of employment, it would re-
lieve me of some difficulties, and probably promote the public
interest. The armory at Richmond could be put in operation at
once. I make these suggestions for the consideration of the

The inf^irmation I have received in regard to the condition of
affairs in Maryland, and especially the city of Baltimore, added
to the appearance of men on the mountain on the Maryland side,
commanding this place, induced me this morning to send an
officer to the high' sheriff of the county, notifying him of my
distress to, and of my unwillingness to trespass UfX)n the soil of
our sister State, unless compelled by necessity, requesting him
to call out the militia to maintain their neutrality. My messen-
ger has not yet returned, and < ircumstances have since come to
my knowledge which impelled me to order a company to occupy
the heights during the night.

My labors have been so incessant during the day that I cannot
communicate more freely at |>reseiit.

Division Headquarters, )
Harper's Ferry, Nov. 20, 1861. j"

Dear Governor, — I have addressed you officially through the
Adjutant General, and I only wish to say to you here, thai you
know me, and that 1 ninst necessarily be allowed to act to a great
extent upon my own jndgaient, as to what is required by the
exigencies of my position. Yon have honored me with a high
trnst, involving great responsibilities, and 1 will rely upon you
for all needful support.

The influences aronnd me at Winchester, I found to be so
unfriendly that I determined in a few hours to remove my Head-
f^uarters to Charlestown. But one company had arrived which
I took with me, and left orders with an officer directing the troops
as they came in to report to me at that place. The use of the
telegraph was denied me by the operator, and the President of
the road saying he was unable to get another operator, 1 closed
the office, tn prevent its being used against me. I do not doubt,
however, that the mischief was done by theoperator, even before
my messenger returned, and that the commanding officer of the
post was informed of my movements.

In haste, yours truly,

Major General Coimnandi?ig.

His Ex'cellency, John Letcher, Governor.

Executive Department,
November 16, 1861.
Gentlemen of the Convention:

On the 17ih day of June last, I transmitted to ynu a commu-
nication, accompanied by sundry documents, intended to show
what Virginia had done in the way of preparation, and also what
she had dime in aiding the successful prosecution of the war in
■which we are now engaged. In this snpplerrient to that com-
munication, I propose to continue the history and to bring dowa
her action to the present time. This course is rendered neces-
sary in consequence of the fact that evil-disposed persons in our
midst, claiming to be Virginians by birth, have misrepresented
facts and distorted truth, with a view of injuring the public
authorities in popular estimation, and disparaging the efforts
made by the Commonwealth to advance the common cause.
The authorities are content with a reference to the record, and by
that, they are wilhng to allow Vu'ginia to be judged, and her
claims to prompt, patriotic and efficient action to be decided.

The paper herewith transmitted from the Ordnance Depart-
ment of the Stale, under the energetic and intelligent adminis-
tration of Col. Dimmock, will show the issues of arms, equip-
ments and munitions of war, since the 14ih day of June last, to
the present time. This report completes that branch of the his-
tory of the operations of the State, and to it any Virginian can
refer with the proudest satisfaction. (See Appendix G.)

The amount expended by the State for war purposes since the
secession of Virginia, exceeds six millions of dollars. Every
demand against her has been promptly considered and disposed
of by the Auditing Board, and it is a source of infinite satisfac-
tion to me to know, that every demand has been paid on presen- •
tation at the Treasury. The Auditing Board are especially de-
serving of the thanks of the Convention for the zeal, industry
and faithfulness with which their onerous and important duties
have been discharged.

An ordinance of the Convention, passed April the 17th, 1861,
instructed the Executive to ''invite all efficietU and worthy Vir-

4 [Doc. No. 86.]

ginians and residents of Virginia, in tlic army and na^T of the
United States, therefrom, and to enter the service of Virginia,
assigning to tliem such nmk as will not reverse tlie relative rank
held by them in the United States service, and will, at least, be
equivalent thereto," And by an ordinance passed April the oOth,
1801, yon extended the invitation to "officers in the revenue ser-
vice and cnast survey service of the United States." In accor-
dance with the instructions contained in those ordinances, invi-
tations W(!re extended by me to the several classes of officers there-
in referred to, and many have presented themselves — have been
accepted and assigned to positions in the Virginia service. When
the Convention was agreed upon between the State and the Con-
federate Government, no provision was made for these officers,
and the consequence is that some officers of each of these classes
hold no commissions in the Confederate service. They are of
course receiving tlieir pay regularly from the State treasury.
As your ordinances have pledged the faith of Virginia to provide
for these officers — a pledge given under the most solemn circum-
stances — I feel persuaded that it will be redeemed. I bring the
matter to your attention for such action, as in your wisdom, may
be deemed proper.

It is important that some action shall be taken at the earliest
moment to put down the growing evil of extortion, almost uni-
versally prevalent throughout the State. I desire that all branches
of business shall be fairly and justly remunerative; that the
farmer, the merchant, the mechanic, shall receive good profits
on whatever they may have to sell. The questioir is no longer
one of fiir profit, but it has become a question of how much can
be extorted Cor a necessary article from the people. All things
necessary for the comfort and support of the volunteers, who are
exposing themselves in the public service and risking their lives
and health in defence of our honor and independence, have
been run up to an almost incredible price. All things necessary
for the comfort and support of their families, are run up iti the
same way. Unless something shall be done by yon speedily to
strangle this evil of extortion, a vast deal of suifering, will be
entailed upon the country. When the Legislature assembles
much of the mischief will have been done, and hence my appeal
to the Convention to interfere.

The volunteer who receives only eleven dollars per month for
his services, cannot afford to supply his tlimily witli salt at from
twenty to twent\'-five dollars per sack, and shoes, clothing, &c.,
in like proportions. Men who are neither contributing physical
nor pecuniary aid to the prosecution of the war, should not be
allowed to reap exorbitant profits. 1 suggest, therefore, with
great respect, that this subject should claim early consid,eratiou.

[Doc. No. 36.] 5

The terms of service of most of our volunteers will expire in
the months of April, May and June next, and 1 call your atten-
tion to the fact, that some action on your part may be tai^eii to
supply tiieir [)laces. The war must be fought out, and to do so
successfully we must keep up our army and provide for its con-
tinuance ill the field, until our independence is fully recognized
by our old associates under the Federal Government.
