Payment of Troops
[6 January 1862]
Arrangements have been made to pay all the
troops up to the 1st of January. Orders for preliminary musters
were issued several days ago.
The Commissioners for New-York to receive
the allotments of soldiers are visiting the camps, about Washington
with great success. Company G, of the Anderson Zouaves, allotted over $600
to their families, much of which will be payable within a week. Other
companies, composed of a different class, have allotted largely
more. If this liberality of the soldiers is maintained, the destitute
families In New-York City will soon be in receipt of a quarter of a
million dollars monthly.
