was that they bad reduced their expenditure for repairs of uniforms, &c., to £20, the amount last year being £40 (applause). By this large reduction In >he expenditure they were enebled to pay off a lot of old scores, and he thought that the financial part of the corps waa ta ae good a condition aa the military part (hear, hear). It was a source of gratification that the good feeling which bad always existed in the corps was still being maintained, and. if anything. It was increasing, and he attributed to that In a very Urge degree the succsss of the corps. As to the future, be trusted that tha many kind friends who felt an Interest io the volunteers, sselng the past conduct of the corps, would be encouraged to in-creese their enbacriptioae so as to enable th* oorpe to get out of debt. Ha contended that the Government did not take (he volunteers in band as thay ought to do, for be considered that the volunteer force of this country were worth maintaining at all It should be maintained at the expense of the Government (bear, hear). He did not believe the country would grudge the extri money they would have to ipend upon It. The force had been formed now fhr!7 years anj the country bed c mAdence In It, and whenever the volunteers bad been called upon to perform duty In' camp or eleewhere tbey h^d always proved that >lhsy were nearly as good soldier* aa the regular troope Lt the line (cheers). A conference had lately been held of. the volunteer officer*, aad lie treated that a large amount of good would result from It, and he hoped that the volunteers would soon be placed lo a better petition than they were at preeent. They, as engineers, were only a small body compared with' the other volunteers, but the exneuses of tha engineers were greater. For Instance, their work necessitated the spoiling of i large amount of clothes, aa was shown by the fact that tbe Royal Engineers were allowed more cMbe* than the regular troops of tho line.
