New York
Civil War Newspaper Clippings

Allotments from Companies A and I, 13th Regiment.
The following is a list of the members of Companies A and I, 13th Regi- ment, who signed allotment rolls directing portions of their pay to be transmitted to Francis Gorton, of the Flour City Bank for distribution. The table also contains the name of the party to whom the money was assigned, the address, and the amount.
The money will be paid at the Flour City Bank. Those who do not call in person for their allotments should be careful to attach a two cent stamp to their orders, as they cannot be paid without:

 

THIRTEENTH REGIMENT. Yesterday morning the officers of the 13th Regiment held a meeting in the Arcade, at which arrangements were made to perfect the muster rolls of the Regiment, which will require several days to do. The Regiment will probably be mustered out and paid off early next week.
Since the above was written, Lieutenant-Colonel Schoeffel has issued the following order:
HEADQUARTERS 13TH REGIMENT N. Y. V.,
No. 93 REYNOLD'S ARCADE,
Rochester, N. Y., May 7, 1863.
General Order No. 12.
The officers and men of this command will report at the Armory of the 54th New York Militia on Exchange street, in this city, on Monday the 11th Inst., at 10 o'clock in the forenoon, for muster out of service. First Sergeants will send their morning reports to the Adjutant at 10 ½ o'clock. All absentees will be reported as deserters.
By order of Lieut.-Col. F. A. SCHOEFFEL,
Commanding the 13th N. Y. V.
JOB. C. HEDGES, Adjutant.

Adjurned Meeting of the Old 13th Volunteers—Resolutions on the Death of Major Sullivan--Organization of an Independent Company.
The adjourned meeting of the members of the Old 13th was held last evening, and was organize by appointing Lieut. Col. Schoeffel President, and Dr. W. H. Lakman, Secretary.
The report of the Committee of Arrangements having been submitted, was unanimously adopted.
The resolutions submitted by the Committee were also unanimously adopted—which are as follows:
Whereas, we have heard with unfeigned sorrow and regret of the sudden and unexpected death of our former comrade in arms, Major Jerry A. Sullivan, of the lst. Veteran N. Y. Cavalry, who fell bravely fighting in defense of his country's rights, in a skirmish, on the 10th of March, at Snickersville, Va.; therefore,
Resolved, that in him we have lost a kind and sincere friend, a noble and generous companion; the community an exemplary citizen, an honorable and upright man, and the army an efficient officer, a brave and gallant defender of "Liberty and Union.''
Resolved, That we as a body can bear testimony to his honorable conduct in the camp and his valor in the field of battle, during his service with our old 13th Regiment; of his untiring devotion to the cause for which has so nobly sacrificed his life, and of his cheerful alacrity and earnest zeal in the performance of each and every duty assigned him.
Resolved, in all the relations of life our departed friend was honored and respected by all who knew him, possessing as he eminently did all those qualities of the mind and heart which won and retained for him the esteem of a very large circle of friends, who as they recall his aimiability of disposition, his generous nature and kindness of heart, will, now that he has been removed from earth, experience with us emotions of the profoundest sorrow and regret at his untimely and premature death.
Resolved, That whilst lamenting his untimely end, we must not be unmindful of his bereaved relatives, to whom we tender our sincerest sympathy and condolence in this afflictive dispensation of an Allwise Being, to whose unfailing love and mercy we commend them.
Resolved, That we, in a body, attend the funeral of our lamented Sullivan, and, in token of our respect for his memory as a soldier and a brother, that we wear mourning for the period of thirty-one days; also, that a copy of these resolutions be transmitted to the family of our deceased brother, and be published in all the dally papers.
F. A. SCHOEFFEL,
C. S. Benjamin,
Wm. H. Lakeman, Committee
Previous to the adjournment of the meeting, the following resolution was submitted and adopted without a dissenting voice, and signed:
Resolved, That we, late members of the 13th Re'gt. N. Y. State Vols., organize ourselves into an independent military company, or association, to be designated and known as the "Old Thirteenth, for the purpose of drill and of still more firmly cementing our bonds of brotherhood, and that this organization only discontinue with the death of the members.
