The reports of desertions, from all the regiments, are not sufficiently reliable to report. It very frequently occurs, that men are reported as deserters, or as dropped from the rolls, are found upon the next Hospital Returns received, to have been in hospital all the time.

The following Table shows the Station and condition of the Regiment at the several dates specified. In this and all similar abstracts in this Report, the column entitled "On duty" includes those reported present for duty, those on special, extra or daily duty, and those on detached service. The column entitled "sick" includes all the sick, present and absent.
