Feather for the 3rd V. B. Border Regiment

We understand that the 3rd Volunteer Battalion Border Regiment, our local Rifle Volunteers, were medically examined when recently in camp, and were pronounced by the examining officer to be the fittest Battalion he had examined.

Considering the cry out there has been about low standard of the Volunteers generally, this may only be negative praise; but so far as it goes it is good. It would not be surprising if we had fuller information, to find that the Battalion was not only comparatively good; for Cumberland bone and sinew have always borne a high reputation.
