Books of Military instruction.

--The officers of the State Militia are all decidedly in favor of the passage of the bill recently introduced in the Senate, which authorizes the Governor to purchase for distribution among them 4,000 copies of Maj. Gilman's Manuel of instruction, provided the same can be had at $1.50 per volume. If the bill becomes a law, the books are to be so marked as to designate them as State property, and the Adjutant General is to deliver to the Commandant of each regiment or battalion, enough to supply one copy to each field officer, and one to the Captain of each troop for the use of the officers and members of said company. Should the bill become a law — of which we entertain little doubt — those who may obtain books will have to receipt for them, and the parties authorized to receive them who may fail to distribute and take receipts, are subject to a fine of not less than $20, nor more than $100; an officer failing to return a book is subject to a fine of $20.
