TO THE EDITOB. Sir,— Allow mo to say a few words through your oolnmns with regard to volunteer church parades. Now, a church parade is a very pleasing sight, and one which, I think, ought to be more frequently observed. it elevates the hearts of the people, who are filled with a pride that they are’ so well protected. lam sure the volunteers of Dunedin, who are mostly young fellows in their prime, would be only too glad to spend an hour or two in this way. Make it, say, once a quarter, or even more frequent. I do not see why the Salvation Army should have to do all the church parading on Sundays. Why confine the parade to one or two churches ? Why not give them all a turn ?—I am, etc., Uniform. Dunedin, August 3.
