Foote finished inspection to-day audln conversation with thu Flint: I'jir.Ks re prosentntivo said thu men would miiko good soldlcru if their services should be needed, Tho olllceis, however, show a need of thorough training at tho hands ot com- o:ent drill masters. Tho clothing and equipments of some companies are oxcellont while that of others very poor. Not nil tho comiianlcs lmvo yet secured tho regula tion blue uniform and the old gray uniforms are in u very poor condition. It is hoped nnd cxpectod that next year all compniiles will wear blue, ns tho appearance of tho regiment depends, largely on ho uni formity of uniform. Somo of the compa nies seem to think thnt their npponriinco is much improved by additions of their own to the prescribed uniforms but Lieut. Footo considers this a great mistflike. Tho military npponriinco ot tho NatiounI Guard of Ver mont docs not coniparo with thnt of tho rogular army but will compare favorably with tho nvorngo militia of other States, which hnvo tnoro material from which to choose. 3Inny of the faults of .the mon could be corrected by olllcor3 if they themsolves wero batter posted In tho military tactics of thu present day, Witli regard to tho battery Lieut. Footo said their movements wero slow, bnt this was to bo expected with tho little drill they receive. At tho same time ho regarded tho battery as a very elllciont organization nnd said they could take the Held now and in a few days defects now noticed would dis appear.

Yesterday, when tho ofllccrs advanced and saluted Secretary Proctor and broke ranks at the close of tho dress parade, tho secretary remarked to Chaplain Hill that his olllco seemed to bo a lifo tenure. And to it is likely to prove, for us long as Chaplain Hill w ill consent to servo he will meet ,sith no opposition for tho olllco. He is deservedly popular with every member of tbo regiment nnd it would be hnrd to find a better man for the place. Long may ho continue to minster to tho welfare of the boys.
