' Thc cemetery is kept in a much more ered?table manner thin it ivas a}decade ago but not so well as it was two-??r three .years ago. There is some complaint 'that the money raised for this purpose is not wisely spent, or at least thc results obtain ed are not as satisfactory as were some time ago. A colored man should be employed to give six days in lhe week to the cemetery, and not divide his time, in part at least, between individuals here and there. The keeping of the cemetery in proper condition will require all of the time of one man. Unless the entire cemetery is well cared for, the day will come when it will not be an easy matter to raise funds for this purpose. ' Company, Attention! Company F. 2nd. Inf., N.
