    A BAD BEGINNING. – Maj.-Gen. SANFORD, of Georgia, has made a report to the Commander-in-Chief, in which he states that his command is in a state of complete disorganization,- and he thinks that the same is true of the entire militia force of the State. This is a bad state of things for a disunion movement. He urges the Legislature to provide at once for organizing and drilling a force of at least ten thousand men. If they are in earnest in their menaces of secession, they ought by all means to act at once upon this advice.
