I. Each Division Commander will detail from the Captains or Lieutenants of his command an Acting Assistant Inspector General and a Judge Advocate, and from among the Lieutenants of his command an Ordnance Officer, for duty on the Staff of such Division. These officers will perform their duties under the direction of the Inspector General, Judge Advocate, and Chief of Ordnance of the Department, respectively. The Judge Advocate will preferably be detailed op all General Courts Martial appointed at Division Headquarters. The names of the officers so appointed will be immediately reported to these Headquarters.

II. All requisitions transmitted to these Headquarters will be presented to the Chiefs of the Staff Departments concerned, viz:

For all supplies furnished by the Quartermaster's Department, to the Chief Quartermaster.

For Subsistence Stores, to the Chief Commissary.
For Medical and Hospital Supplies, to the Medical Director.
For Ordnance and Ordnance Stores, to the Chief of Ordnance.

III. Colonels of Regiments will immediately report direct to these Headquarters the dates from which they take rank as such.

IV. All enlisted men of the Volunteers, wishing to transfer into the Regular Army, will record their names at the Adjutant's Office of their regiments at once, or before the 1st of March next. Lists of the names so recorded will be forwarded weekly to Brigade or Division Headquarters. Regular officers desiring to enlist soldiers from the volunteer service, will hereafter apply at the Brigade or Division Headquarters for such lists, and will also apply at the same Headquarters for permission to visit the regiments to recruit the men. No Regular Officer will hereafter enlist any volunteer soldiers, whose names are not on such lists, and care will be taken not to take from any one regiment more than the number authorized by General Orders No. 162, of 1862, from the War Department, Adjutant Gereral's Office.

V. The special attention of all officers in tbis Department is directed to paragraph 451, Revised Army Regulations, of 1861, the requirements of which are too generally disregarded, viz:

“ All official correspondence between the beads of the different departments of the staff of any command and its commander, must pass through the Adjutant

General, Assistant Adjutant General, or Adjutant of his command, as the caso may be. Communications to and from a commander and those under his command must pass through the Adjutant General, Assistant Adjutant General, or Adjutant un duty with it; excepting only such communications between a disbursing officer and the cbief of his particular branch of the staff, as relate exclusively to the ordinary routine of business in their own department. All communications, whether from an inferior to a superior, or vice versa, are, as a general rule, to be passed tbrough the intermediate commanders. The same rule governs in verbal com nunications; for example: A Lieutenant seeking an indulgence, must apply through his Captain, the Captain through the Adjutant, and so on.”

Experience has abundantly shown, that a strict observance of these provisions is essential to the discipline and efficiency of a command; a violation of them has ever proved the fertile cause of jealousy, misunderstandings and miscarriage.
