know that a number of volueteenr now sta
tion, d in Merylaild, guaruing to lroeds, al
though furnished with new uniforms, are
obliged to wear their long overcoats as substi
tutes; fur pantaluves. As far as I know they
have plenty to eat, and of good quality.
Much has lately been eat(' in pubic prints
on this shameful imposition on our soldiers,
and it is quite possible teat some men in en

it. Div oljett is now to state to the public
what I know snout the treatthent of at least
our c ut,peny now at Camp Curtin.
About five weeks ago the 'deli Infantry of
Munich Chunk,—Capt. Dennis McGee—receivers
orders to march iuto Camp, which order was
promptly obeyed. The men comptaiug said
tympany expect* d, es they had a right to ex
pect after re ,cluing the camp, that they vreut-1
be furnished—within a reesunable time—ii
nut with unifolms, at least such at tides as are
intlispeneible. They waited paii.ntly fr. m
day to day, and from week to week, receiving
very go d food end plenty of it, but not a rehoe,
slob is or pair of pantaluone or any other a. tic! -
iu that ti,e 801118 of them had no change or
shit tf r five weeks Darin.: the extra eessiou
of the Legislature I frequently visited the com
pany, and felt called upon to give them the as
surance almr at daily that "tee pewees 'hit be"
would, iu a very snort time, attend to tht it
wants. Isucceseled in satisfying some of tnem
at lea-t, that this delay, or apparent neglect
was unavoidable and they wee wiling, most
; heinfolly, to cuff r a little ionuer. Yesterdey
I ...gain visi ted this neglected, p etient and truly
patriotic company Some trine or ten were en
drill entirely barefoot, d. Several could trot ap
pear in the ranks at all for want of pantaluone,
ehilet others were in the ranks with shirts cm
their backs for five we, ks without change!
They appealed to me, as their friend, whether
this is tbe kind tre etrueut Arne.lean soldiers
must put up with! They keew that the Legie
laturo promptly voted =Mobs to organize,
clothe, feed and equip the soldiere, and yet
some of them were almost entirely baked! I
pledged my word that something would be
done for them without further delay. With
another friend of the company I visited the
Quarter Master's department, in the camp, and
stated the case. I was told that, as the com
pany was 'not yet ilirmally mustered into ser
vice, they could do nothing for them without
an order from Quarter Master General Hale. We
immediately allied on him' at his department
and stated the case to him. His reply was,
"Can't do anything for them, sir." I re
minded him of the fact that they are men and
soldiers, but naked, and insisted that they
must have something to wear. He_again re
plied that as they are not formally mustered
into service, it would be a violation of the
rules and regulations to give them clothing.—
I then appealed to hint to give me an order for
about a dozen pairs of shoes, pants and shirts.
to supply those who are really almost naked,
at the same time offering to deposite into
his hands a sufficient amount of money
to indemnify him, and thus make myself
'responsible, the money to be refunded to me af
ter the company shall have been formally mus
tered in. This he also declined, because it
would be "against their regulation," and com
plicate tbeir accounts I Satisfied that the Quer
termiester General bad no inclination to do any
thing for these poor but brave mu n, I withdrew
from his august presence and proceeded down
town, where I bought thirteen pairs of shoes,
ten pairs of pants and ten shirts. These few
articles soon found their way to the company,
and were properly distributed by Captain
M'Gee among the. most needy. lam as
eared that some of the Harrisburg ladle,
are about furnishing this company with ad
ditional articles of clothing. If they do I
know that they will recieve many beauty "Goo
