Tb<- fact that the Inspection was to trke pin was soon rr.ade manifest by the mustering of t respective companies at their several armories, which rooms, however, the curious crowd w? debarred access for the most part by sent! m orm?d with mn?ke1a, said muskets having as a -pendant " perk?d" looking Instruments that d not invite collision. It had been given out thst en Inspection of o rlMzen soldiery would take place, but the undi standing was that it was to be by companies, ai on different days, hence the sensation when t suddm change of programme on the part of t War Department ?u ascertained; added to t exciting intelligence that the companies were be mustered at once into aervice. The Star ofllce hns been literally besieg through the day by easier enquirers as to " W ha up?" and of course the vicinity of each crmo bad it* excited crowd of lockers on, amoni wbrm ten thousand various reports and rumi were In busy circulation. The Inspection was made by Inspector Genri t*tone. >1 D C.. who will report to the L>epa ment and the M.ijor General sommandlng t condition of the corps as to drill and erjulpmei and t *pec!ali v of the commissioned and uoa-coi missioned officers.

Stone. At tbe conclusion of tbe conference, the b< laiton wan formed In column and addressed Col Davis, wbo informed tbe men that there w a call for fco volunteers from tbe battalion to i port at once at the Adjutant General's Office, \V Department, for special duty. When he had I <eivcd tbe oider to must> r the battalion he hi made a selection of clflcers to command the coi p*ny so ordered o?it. In doing so. he bad t leavored to do hisbe?t to satisfy the officeis of t several companies; this baa alvi ays been hisdesi m au^bt he had ever done with reference to tt < realization; ne baa sometimes failed to plea the officers, but never so signally at on this ncc sion Objections had been made to Lis sele.ttior !?hd ir. such a way as to decide him as to bis ov future course with reference to his command; ar he new informed the battalion tbat this was tl last time he should have the pleasure of comman in.< them.

About forty-five men did so at once, ai after a f'*r moments many more, nearly furnis inp the complement required. Capt.
