Organizing at home.

The people of Alabama and Georgia are organizing themselves into companies with the view of presenting some obstacle to Yankee raids should they occur. It is easy for a body of cavalry to pass through a country where there are neither soldiers nor armed local guards to present some obstacle in their way. If those who are not in the field are enrolled, officered and armed, even with shot guns, they could be promptly called out, and would in many cases afford efficient protection, and prevent the destruction of a great deal of property. The example of Georgians and Alabamians deserves to be followed elsewhere.
