Payment of Troops [6 January 1862]

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.

 

Allotments of soldiers

 

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.
