§ COLONEL FORDE
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary for War what the intentions of the Government are relative to any allowance to be given to the men of the Regiments of Militia which they intend to disembody?
said, the volunteers, on being disembodied, would of course receive the unissued portion of their annual bounty. They would also receive fourteen days' pay, without beer money. This would be paid to them at once, and not by instalments as usual. They would also be allowed to take away their tunics, trousers, and boots, issued during 1857 and 1858, and their fatigue clothing, together with their shirts and socks.
