adjutant is Charles S. Hardee, late second lieutenant of the Tattnall Guards, an unattached company, stationed at Oglethorpe Barracks, Savannah, Ga. As most of the officers of the regiments, &c., which will report at once at camp are very deficient in a acknowledge of tactics, and will need instructions, and as the conscripts will commence to report at camp by Monday, the 16th instant, I have selected a list of drill-masters whose names I respectfully submit to the Secretary of War, with the request that their commissions be forwarded at once. I shall order as many of them as I think will at present be necessary to report at camp without delay, and as fast as they arrive I will assign them to their respective duties.

I have the honor to be, your obedient servant,

JOHN DUNWODY,

Major and Asst. Adjt. Gen., Commanding Camp, &c.
