FROM OUR MORNING EDITION,
Nfe are indebted to a military gentleman con
nected with , the corps of riflemen to be Mus
tered into service under Colonel Barden,
for some interesting facts with regard to it, and
the qualifications for membership.. The candi
date (who is, allowed to use his own rise) before
being enrolled, is tested 83 to his skill, and re
quired to shoot withprm;ision enough to put ten
~om the, centre of alazget,,,k4l4:*4i
e die tnce of six hopired feet. nAmigh
o ':each shot is measured from the centre point
of_ the target to the centre of the bullet. hale,
and the sum total of these distances ninst . not
ex a fifty inches. This precision isimpent
tiv required, and UQ
. person is accepted into
thesegiment who cannot fulfil all that is set
fop above. Upon this point Colonel Borden
hal eclded, and an excess of even a small frac-
Ulan of au inch beyond the limits prescribed,
E' ualifies the eppliCant. The regiment is
recruited trona . air the States, and will
bar about 1,00. The Governor of each
kite is charged with the selection and enroll
ment of the men, but in Missouri, where the
gubernatorial department is 'rather in confusion,
Frank Blair is to raise and command the quota
Of that State.
Many complaints have been made that the
requirements are too strict, and that such ;
die shooting could not be made by the Colonel
himself. To stop these grumblers, Colonel
Bbrdan, while on the grounds of the first regi
itent, at Weehawken, New Jersey, leisurely
took up a rifle anil put ten balls in a target, at
a total distance of eleven and a half incihes
'from the centre, or at an average distancoof one
inch and a half for each bill.
The regiment will be rendezvoused at Wee
ibtiwken, .preparatory to their departure for the
, seat of war. The drill will not-be according to
the usual mannit,.buismuch se the men are in
*ended to deploy in small Squads on the field
of battle and! manoeuvre at mill in , picking off
commanders,officersandartdlleriste of the enemy.
.4.00de4f signals will be , adopted among the
en to warn each other Of die lapproash of
cavalry—talody effective , brWnoli of the ear
-1 !oleo ininttineup -The men will also
be drilled to load a fire in lying, sitting and
I' erlostatief 0010 make their Witligarbl
et a 'huige Cerroza die habil'
dyed to a thousand yards. The uniform will be
of green throughout for summer and gray for
winter, without any appendages of brass but
tons or plates that might serve to make the
men target; The uniforms are intended to
assimilate to the colors of nature so as to render
the men almost indiscernible to the enemy,
thus permitting them without any extra risk to
themselves to approach and pick off their foes.
Colonelßerdan is devising a model for an im
proved rifle, which, when manufactured, will
be supplied those of the regiment preferring
them to their own private arms.
The company from Pennsylvania, which is to
be composed of seventy-five men, will be mus
tered in as soon as formed, which will be in
about twenty days. Those able to meet the
requirements, and who wish to join the regi
ment from this State, must make immediate
application to Mr. J. If. Dewey by letter ad
dressed to this city. The rifles must weigh te
tween ten and fifteen pounds, and not to carry
over thirty-five long balls to the pound.
[There is a poetic force and eloquence in the
following story which are heightened by the
moral grandeur and martial daring of the
event they describe, that cannot fail to elicit
the warmest response of the reader. We clip
the production from the Washington National
Republican, and present it to the readers of the
Tsulattaxn as a true and pointed specimen of
COL. CAMERON, SEVENTY-NINTH REGI
Died in battle, at the head of his command.
DT L. A. BAUGIB
How eloquent is death ! For equal laws
Struggling and striving to his latest breath,
He gave his life to consecrate a cane,
And so: he died : how eloquent is death !
Beyond ev'n envy's reach, he stood =blamed ;
• In honor's forward path he ever trod ;
Tender andiaue to man, he only.claimed
To rank among the chivalry , of God 1
When.the old. flag 'mid clouds of danger flew,
And 'round it gathered many a threat'ning
His country called ; fail well her voice he knew,
And, eager then, he buckled on his sword.
He fellas heroes fell,' among the brave,
When mighty hosts were crashing in their
When battle rolled its red and human wave
Against a fatal wall of steel and fire.
He fell as heroes fall—the foe before,
The plaids and tartans rushing on behind,
The country's banner proudly streturking o'er,
Like a bright meteor through the murky
His-requiem was the roar of guns; the shot
Made music 'round him with avenging sleet;
Ah I happy, doubly 'happy, was the lot ,1
Of him who died unconscious of defeat !
Not now we sing his prairie: the day will, come,
When war shall hold its hand for very shame,
And high above the cymbal and the drum,
Some minstrel voice shall rise to tell his
Time, chance, and circumstance, all these
must c hange.,... --.
They rule the present hour with brief control;
Example is eternal, and its range . .
Is universal, as the human soul.
