GENERAL ORDERS No. 34.

HEADQUARTERS TENTH ARMY CORPS,
Before Petersburg, Va., September 25, 1864.

The Thirty-seventh New Jersey Volunteers, on the 26th instant, will leave for Trenton, N.J., reporting to the superintendent of recruiting service of that State, to be mustered out of service at the expiration of its enlistment. The major-general commanding cannot part with this regiment of 100-days' men without expressing his gratification and satisfaction with their conduct. They have endured fatigue, encountered the rebel foe like good soldiers, and have gained the esteem of the veterans of this corps. He is confident that when they return to New Jersey, a State that has furnished such soldiers as Kearny, Mott, Torbert, they will continue to sustain the veterans they have left at the front, doing what Sherman advised, "fighting this out like men." The major-general commanding will be pleased to assist the commanding officer of this regiment in reorganizing it to aid in the finale of the rebellion in conjunction with this corps. The quartermaster's department will furnish transportation.

By command of Maj. Gen. D. B. Birney:

 ED. W. SMITH,

 Assistant Adjutant-General.
