The Prince of Wales reviewed the Northern. Volunteers at York

on Saturday, the 11th inst., and, the affair seems to have gone off admirably, though the Prince was obliged to leave before the review had concluded. Twenty-five thousand volunteers appeared on the ground, and went through their evolutions in a way which called forth a warm encomium from the Duke of Cambridge. They would have made an admirable corps d'armee, could they only have moved, fed themselves, or camped out in the face of an enemy. It is not the volunteers who want improve- ment, but the departments which need to be organized. How

would the volunteers, for example, like to go into action without a fielet hoepital ?
