The whole militia of the State having been called into service by proclamation of the Governor of March 10, 1862, such volunteers as refuse to re-enlist and are discharged from service fall at once into the militia, and must be immediately drafted into service at the points of rendezvous where such volunteers are discharged, and, if practicable, into the same companies to which they lately belonged.

General PENDLETON, Commanding Artillery:
GENERAL: I am instructed by General Johnston to say that he wishes you to march as many of your artillery command by land to the Peninsula as you can possibly get off. The demonstrations of the enemy in that quarter are such that he deems it imperative to hurry your artillery down at once. All that you are obliged to leave can go by water.
