Under the provisions of section five, chapter one hundred and eleven, of the statutes of 1862, most of the companies of the Volunteer Militia of the State paraded one day in the month of May, for inspection, drill and discipline. The number of men inspected was three thousand and sixty-eight. A portion only of the troops went into camp under section six of said chapter, the recruitment for the nine months' service having commenced at the time usually allotted for fall encampments. The number of men inspected in camp was eight hundred and thirty-three. The Fourth Battalion of Infantry, Major Lee, performed two separate days' duty in lieu of camp service-present one hundred and sixty men.

The Volunteer Militia has been reduced, during the year, to a small number of corps available for service in the State, the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Regiments and the Second and Fourth Battalions of Infantry having been recruited to the regimental standard required by the United States, and thoroughly reorganized for active duty, and mustered into the service of the United States, together with the Battery of Light Artillery, of the First Brigade, as a part of the militia contingent of Massachusetts.

The organized corps now in the State are the First Battalion of Light Dragoons, (two companies,) Major Wilder, and the corps of Cadets, Lieutenant-Colonel Holmes, in Boston; the company of Light Dragoons, in North Bridgewater, Captain Shaw; the company of Cadets, Major Marks, the company of Infantry, Captain Staten, and the section of Light Artillery, Captain Wilson, in Salem; and the company of Light Dragoons, Captain Stanley, in Waltham.

The number of militia commissions issued in 1862 is nine hundred and eighty-eight; officers in commission for nine months' service, six hundred and forty-seven. Number of discharges in the militia during the year, two hundred and ninety-nine. Of these, ninety-five were third and fourth lieutenants, discharged under General Order No. 7, fifty-three were officers of disbanded corps, and ten were officers in the late Fifty-Fifth Regiment, dishonorably discharged the service.

During the past year there have been issued from this office sixty-three General Orders, covering one hundred and seventeen manuscript pages, against twenty-eight Orders, covering thirtyeight pages for the year 1861, and of Special Orders, thirteen hundred and twenty-three, making four hundred and eightynine manuscript pages, against six hundred and fifty-one Orders of three hundred and sixteen pages for the year 1861.

Five thousand seven hundred and twenty letters, covering upwards of thirty-eight hundred pages have been written and recorded this year, against eleven hundred and eighty-six letters during the year 1861.

Seventeen hundred and twenty-five commissions have been issued during the year, to officers of three years troops, in addition to the nine hundred and eighty-eight militia and nine months commissions before mentioned.

Upwards of thirty thousand certificates of enlistment have been issued to families of volunteers, and the average number of persons visiting the office on business is over two hundred a day.

The amount of labor required to be performed has taxed to the utmost the powers of all connected with this Department, since the commencement of the war, and the difficulty of doing the work satisfactorily has been aggravated by the size and insufficient ventilation of our rooms.

Several of the Colonels of our Regiments, and Captains of our Batteries at the seat of war, have never failed to send to these Head-quarters a monthly report of the condition of their commands, but the greater number have failed to do it,

though requested. These monthly reports are of great value, and I would respectfully impress upon our officers in
