WAR DEPARTMENT,

Washington, June 18, 1861.

Honorable CHARLES S. OLDEN,

Governor of New Jersey, Trenton:

SIR: I h ave the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter covering copies of resolutions of the Legislature of New Jersey, urging upon the General Government "the necessity of taking the necessary steps to complete the battery now under contract with the Messrs. Stevens in the shortest practicable time."

The subject referred to in the resolutions is one of acknowledged importance, and demands, and will receive, the earnest attention of this Department. It will be necessary, however, to have the action of Congress upon it before any decisive steps are taken, and it will accordingly be referred to that body for its consideration when it assembles in extra session on the 4th of July next.

With the highest respect, I am, sir, your most obedient servant,

SIMON CAMERON,

Secretary of War.
