Reading matter for the soldiers.
--There is a great scarcity here of tracts and small religious books for circulation among the soldiers.
To supply this deficiency, some persons have resorted to the distribution of religious newspapers — a kind of reading more acceptable, we dare say, to most of the soldiers than tracts, and which, with a little attention on the part of their editors to this end in their selections, may be made quite as useful as the tract.
We suppose, indeed we are sure, that the publishers of any of the three religious papers in our city will, if notice is given them in time, furnish any number of extra copies, any week, at low prices.
We know of no other way how, for the same amount of money as they will cost, so large a mass of reading matter of this kind may be obtained, or one which is likely to be more useful by attracting and instructing the leisure hours of our men.
