Georgia’s Volunteer Soldiery.
The convention of military men,

bly have an important beating on the
future of volunteer Military organi
zations. As a matter of general in
terest we take the following extracts
from the proceedings of the first day:
Tl c stole military advisory board held its

one in tbc northern part of the state, and
one on tile const.
It recommends the adoption of a uniform
service uniform, ami many other excellent
changes in tbc management, organization
and equipment of the state militia
The convention requested the udvisory
board to draft a bill for the legislature set
ting forth the needs of the state military
and asking for sufficient appropriation to
make the system efficient. The con
also memorializes the legislature,
the passage of a law making one year's mili

wisdom, has 'set hounds for man which

hydrostatic nobility, and whenever
man does not adapt himself to these
immutable laws every impeachment

self into a terrible accusation against

teach man to study first the laws of
nature and to take into account th
tremendous power of each clement
which he is more than willing to use
for his benefit and comfort whenever
and wherever he can. The devasta;
