A Timely Order.
The following instruction issued by Lt.
Col. Benton, romtnandio? at StvAlban, in
new of n cent events are timely and judic
i jus, and nre a valuable here a there. We
commend them to tlie notice of our citizens,
cspcti illy those wbo bate enrolled tbemselres
for military service .
Tbe danger to t appreheisl.d is a srdden
dash and surprise. Accordingly the essential
point is to secure prompt action.
Te this end tbe citueas of all ths frontier
villages should have an orgvaizition, and be
prepared to act under recognized leaders.
Arms will beissued sufhiient to equip such
compinies. The arms so issued should cot be
krpt in any armory, or one place, for such ar
mory woull be the first place of attack, and the
arms so isiued would be used to defeat the pur
pose for which they are sent.
The moskcts should be d'sUrhutsl among the
members of tbe companies and kept at their sev
eral places of business w th the cquipmeats in
such position as can be put in use in the least
pts-tble time. Every member of the companies
should l personally instructed in patting on
his belt;, and prscticeJ till he can equip himself
in three seconds.
They should hare freqnent exercise in rallying
into line, so as to be able to get in order in the
1 . s poes.be time.
Too much pains cannot be taken to impress
upon the citizens the necessity of being in line
ween they meet the enemy Unlm they are
so, it is worss than useless to issue muskets, for
our own men are in as mush danger as tbe en
emy. Besides in line there is much less expo
sure. Properly organized, no pirty, however smill,
need have any fear of attacking the largest
parly of raiders, because they cannot stop to
hhr. They cannot know how many reserves
will corns up, and when resolutely attacked
must yield or run.
The chief obicct cf tha raiders is plunder, bnt
they cannot transport goods except jewelry. It
is not probable tbey could hare the means and
time to break open even a common safe if
the cities keep oa the alert.
The beat way for a msn to defend his store is
to unite with his neighbors and defend the who!
village. If every man stays at home, to.defecd
hia house, the result is the whole village ij taken
in detail, and the arms kept In tilt wayosly

ceives a mmkfcC from "the govemmeet must pledge
himself to use. it ta sons regular organization,
and under command of proper ofloers. Bales
and instructions In regard to the t ait at arms
will be furnished by tbe Adjutant General.
It is to be understood that the crgaxu'zttioca
here eontempUtod, are only tin tha Legislature

should be eumeieatly permanent to last till the
other action is provided, whenever that maybe.
