The Ilarrisburs Tctyroph contains the following sensible hint : There is not much doubt that the Government will be compelled to issue another call for troops, and even if it should not be compelled to do so, the policy of drilling a reserve force must strike every man as judicious and necessary. No man can tell the extent to which our military operations may extend. The campaigns may be brief they may be long, laborious and devastating. In cither case, the drilliug of a reserve force will repay the time consumed in acquiring a knowledge of tactics and evolutions. When another call is issued, there will be no time to prepare.

But the trait 5s a good one. It is a sign of the most exalted form of patriotism, comprehending pride, affection arid faith. It shows unal- j terable devotion to our form of Govern ment, and an intense desire that the mag nificent experiment of our nationality hhould be sustained by other nations. Knglishmen are loyal and patriotic 3 but they have so long had peace and security at home, that they cannot appreciate the passionate devotion to one's Government that is awakened by a gigautic and rebell ious effort to destroy it.
