MILITARY PARADE. — TARGET EXCURSION.

MILITARY ARR.VNOKMIiXTS | [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 1 March 1849
MILITARY ARRANGEMENTS. Some important movements have recently been made by the War Department for the Western frontier of the Republic. The departments of Oregon and California (10 and 14) are consolidated into one, called the Third or Pacific Division, under the command of brevet Major Gen. Persifor F. Smith. We are indebted to the Adjutant General's office for copies of the following general orders designating these arrangements. The general order No. 54 creates the Third or Pacific Division; No. 55 assigns brevet Brig. Gen. Riley, Lieutenant Colonel 2d Artillery, to his brevet rank; and No. 61 assigns Gen. Smith to the command of the Pacific Division, on his brevet rank of brigadier general. From the established character of both these distinguished officers, it will be seen that they are admirably qualified for the responsible and distant stations to which they have been respectively assigned. — [Washington Union, Nov. 19.
