Protect the batteries.

The press ought to call attention to the proper construction and bomb-proof protection of our batteries till the thing is attended to. We never heard of such shocking apathy and neglect as we might point out in certain cases but for calling the notice of the enemy to it, who probably, after all, knows as much about it as any of us. With the materials convenient, the thing perfectly practicable, and disater after disaster teaching its necessity, no more heed is given to it in certain localities than it we desired to invite calamity to our cause and destruction to our soldiers Such suicidal indifference is mournful, astounding, almost incredible.
