If a man makes up hismind to ÃÃght for h is country, Lis country shoula ftirnisli good weapons. The Rio Grande correspondent oÃ' the N. Y. Spirit of the Times in onc of liis letters says: 'The itifunlry sword lor ofneers must be changad. We want a light but serviceuble sabrÃ©, with a sling belt. We miglu as well have a loasting fork as our present sword. It trips you up whea marchiog, and it would not kill a flea without three blows. Where would poor JordÃ¡n have been, if the gnllant Lincoln hnd not provided himself wiih a sabrÃ© and ground it? With a blow for each, hocut off the heads of lwo of the enemy, and sa ved bis brother oiRcer's life. With our 'regulation sword' he would not have scratched the skin.'
