Hume to the Cheltenham Battalion of Volunteers, which has suffered the penalty of inattention and irregularity at drill, and been severely reprimanded in consequence. We should state that Colonel Hume was the first officer. who officially inspected the Haverfordwest Volunteers, of whose proficiency and steadiness he spoke in terms of the highest commendation:—' I should not' said the In- specting Officer, I be doing my duty if I were to tell you that you have gone through your movements in a soldier- like manner, because it is not so. I consider that the first part of your movements were done in a very loose way 1 might almost say in a manner unworthy of your position—indeed, worse I never saw in my life. That, I cannot help thinking-arises from a want, on the part of many of you, of a regular attendance at drill. I have seen your drill and practice returns, and am surprised to find that not more than one-third of the members have been anything like regular in attendance at drill. I may here state that this is the first time 1 have inspected a Gloucestershire Dattalion- and I really expected to see the movements done more steadily. I could see at once the men had not attended their drill regularly,, and that, if they had they had not paid attention to it. Thc officers -and I am pleased to say it-pave done their work well; but it is impossible for them to carry out their object unless you attend to your drill. It js impossible for them to do so. But you must improve; anihow can you do so unless you attend to your drill? The government having taken up the movement, and put their liands in the pockct of the country to, support it, something more wil! be expected of you, and I am bound to report how you have done your work. I have noticed that severad correct iocs, published in the last new book, have not bieu taken notice of; if they had been 1 should have known that the men attended their drill. It is really d most important that these matters should be attended to. I raast also tell you that your file firing was very bad- it was vaHey firmg very nearly. But your volley firing was very good; and the few movements towards the end, were executed much more steadily than those at the commencement, and that convincesmethatifyou attended more regularly to your diillyou would be more effective; It is impossible that either the Adjutant. or the Command- in £ odlcer can do their duty if you do not attend drill, aud, 1 hope, that,by the time I come here again to iuspcct you that I shall find you more steady in your movements, and a well-disciplined regiment. I may tell you that I am a man who speak of things as I find them—1 speak my tain..); and I hope and trust you will receive my re- marks in the spirit which they are intended. 1 wish to lmpi-esa upon you the importance of regular attendance atdrill, so that, when I inspect you another year, I may speak of you in more favourable terms. The officers, throughout the movements, have shown that they have patd a Rreat deal of attention to the drill, and I hope you will follow their example. I tell you that it is painful to me so to speak my mind, but it is my duty to tell you of your shortcomings, and so long as 1 hold the position I do, I shall continue to do so, feeling, as I said before, that it is my duty,'
