Seoond Lieutenant in the Lonsdale Bat- talion (11th Border Regiment), and he has been with them at Blackball Camp, Carlisle, since their formation in September last. He has paid for all his equipment out of the Govern- ment allowance, and not only lives on his pay, as he believes most, if not all, of his fellow-officers do, but he tells me that after defraying all necessary expense., he has a margin of some five shillings a day left.—I am, Sir, dre., Longmarf on Rectory, Carlisle.
