Lieutenant Colonel R. C. DRUM.

Assistant Adjutant-General, San Francisco:

COLONEL: I have this day received a report from Captain Starr. * He was at Bear Valley, Mariposa County, and reports everything quiet, and apprehends no more trouble on election day than is usual on such occasions. The company being raised in Mariposa for the Seventh Infantry has about seventy-five men enrolled, and will be ready for organization soon. Captain Starr has about ten days' subsistence now with him. If the general thinks it necessary to keep the company there later than the 12th I will dispatch a wagon with additional rations at once. Please let me know to-morrow. I think it would be well to keep the company in Mariposa for a few days until everything quiets down after the election.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

G. WRIGHT,

Brigadier-General, Commanding.
