A communication was received from the Governor, by Mr. Pleasants, secretary of state, which he delivered in at the speaker's table, and then he withdrew.

Said communication was in writing, and is as follows:

Executive Office, Dec. 24, 1823.

Gentlemen of the Senate and of the House of Representatives,

In adverting to the return of the late Quarter-master Genera, an obvious necessity will appear for repealing or subjecting to some restrictions, the latter part of the 23d section of the militia law of last session. This section embraces a provision whereby the captains of volunteer companies without control shall have authority on filing bond, to issue orders on the Quarter-master General For all arms necessary for their companies.

It is expected, that our new quota of arms will shortly be received; and under this provision if unrepealed, we may expect them almost as soon to be distributed.

I believe it will be found the most effectual mode of preserving the public arms to have them carefully boxed and occasionally examined, cleaned and oiled under the care of the quarter-master General. In case the public defence should call for a detachment of our militia to go into actual service, it is very important that arms sufficient should be at the command of the Executive. The new quota expected will not much exceed the quantity necessary for a regiment of infantry, exclusive


154

I have ordered for two companies of cavalry. In hope the legislature will reserve this portion to be free from the uncontrolled order of the commanders of volunteer companies.

ISRAEL PICKENS.

Ordered, That said communication be referred to the military committee.

And then the House adjourned till 3 o'clock this evening.
