For the day tomorrow Lt Col. C. Millen.

For duty the first Jersey regiment.

The Quarter Master General has fixed on three Markett places to which Provisions of all kinds intended for sale to the troops are to be brought—One in the front of the interval between the New Jersey and New York brigades, one in front of the interval between the first and third Massachusetts Brigades, and one in the rear of the hospital hutts—by the road that runs between those Hutts and the Hutts of the 2d Massachusetts brigade.

A return of the number of Cartridges wanted to compleat the men of each regiment in this Cantonment, that will probably be under arms on Thursday next to three rounds per man to be given in tomorrow at Orderly time.

A subaltern officer is daily to superintend each Market place established in the orders of this day. They will be furnished, in the following manner; the Maryland, Jersey, York, and Hampshire regiments in rotation, begining on the right that between the York & Jersey Lines—the first and third Massachusetts brigades, regimentally from right to left, that in the interval between those brigades—and the 2d Brigade in the same manner, that between the hospital hutts and those of said brigade.

The officers on this duty will find their Instructions in the orders of the 24th instant.
