WAR DEPARTMENT, Washington, May 14, 1861.

Governor CHARLES S. OLDEN,

Trenton, N. J.:

DEAR SIR: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your two letters of the 11th instant, presented to me by Colonel John G. Stevens, and it gives me pleasure to say that I believe Mr. Stevens' interview with the Department has been entirely satisfactory to him. Having fully advised him in regard to the troops yet desired from New Jersey, he has departed for home, and will be much better able verbally to inform you in regard to the inquiries of your letters than I can by writing.

I am, sir, very respectfully,

SIMON CAMERON,

Secretary of War.

Advised you by mail yesterday that five regiments would be forwarded to Washington the present week. I intend to accomplish it. Nothing can prevent but equipments. Five others will follow, in all, next week. The above ten regiments will be for two years or for the war.
