Increase of the pay of the Volunteers.

This matter ought to be attended to as soon as Congress meets. The pay of the volunteers is, at this moment, $11 a month. A short time since we had a pair of coarse brogue boots made for a volunteer, who had lost all his clothes in a retreat, and we had to pay twelve dollars for them — exactly one dollar more than his month's pay. The pay bears no sort of proportion to the price of articles of prime and absolute necessity.
