Of the Now Infantry Corps formed here all the members calcnlatcd from the first on having to provide their own uni- form ; but they aro not disposed to raise any obstruction to tho liberality of Parliament in this matter; and I think it is in contem- plation to subscribe a sum equal to the amount placed nt tho disposal of the govern- ment for the uniform of this corps,_ and devote it to tho purchase of some prize to be contended for by the members.
