§ In reply to Major ANSOW,
§ MR. CARDWELL
said: No fresh appointments of paymasters of recruiting districts under the Warrant of 1860 will in future be made, it being considered an unnecessary expense to keep up a special department for payments on the recruiting service. With respect to paymasters generally, I have made no new appointments since I came into Office, every vacancy at my disposal having been employed in providing for reducible officers. As regards the Control paymasters, no new persons have been appointed, the places being filled in every instance by gentlemen already in the service.
