Evtmng Post suggesta that disabled oflicers and Btidiera bc given positions as Assistánt Assessors and Collectors undr tlio in ter nal revenas law, and suuh othcr offices uuder t lic Government as they may bc competeut to fill. This is right. We have iu tlic nrmy numbers of young and middle-agcd men of the best talent; tliey are daily coming home physically disabled (rom engaging in a löborious tradc, and tho Government can do no better tban to iustal them in Clerksliips, Collectoiships. &c, and let able-bodied civüians seek inore active cuiployment - These disabled 6oldiers can not be turned out on the cold charitics of the world, or left to starve on meagre pensions, and j it is cuily jusiice that they bo given offices they are competent to fill. t We fciir that unless something is dune by the State authorities, by the citizens, or by both, that officers recruiting for the old regiments will not meet with very good suecess. In every section of tlic Slate suc-h liberal bounties are being offcred by citizéns for men for the new regiments that the regiment n tho field will hardly get thc:r share. We do not know how the difficulty ca-.i be renwdied, but would ask if it may not be iu part by enlistiq; for tho old regiments for one year intead of three.
