TENTH ARMY CORPS,
The Thirty-seventh New Jersey Volunteers, on the 26th
instant, will leave for Trenton, N.J., reporting to the superintendent of
recruiting service of that State, to be mustered out of service at the
expiration of its enlistment. The major-general commanding cannot part with this
regiment of 100-days' men without expressing his gratification and satisfaction
with their conduct. They have endured fatigue, encountered the rebel foe like
good soldiers, and have gained the esteem of the veterans of this corps. He is
confident that when they return to New Jersey, a State that has furnished such
soldiers as Kearny, Mott, Torbert, they will continue to sustain the veterans
they have left at the front, doing what Sherman advised, "fighting this out
like men." The major-general commanding will be pleased to assist the
commanding officer of this regiment in reorganizing it to aid in the finale of
the rebellion in conjunction with this corps. The quartermaster's department
will furnish transportation.
By command of Maj. Gen. D. B. Birney:
