CAMP CAMERON.
As we had tho first choice, we got, on the
whole, the bet site for a camp. Wo occupy
the villa and farm of Dr. Stone, two miles due
north of Willard's Hotel. I assume that hotel
as a peculiarly American point of departure,
"j and also because it is tho hub of Washington
''the centre 'of' an eccentric, having, tho White
"HonSe at tho end of its shorter, and thVCapi-
tol at the end of its longer radius moral, so
they say, a9 well as geometrical.
Sundry dignitaries. Presidents, and whatnot.
have lived hero in times gone by. Whoever
chose the sight ought to bo kindly remembered
for his good taste. Tho house stands upon the
pretty terrace commanding the plain of Wash
ington., From the upper windows we can see
the Potomno opening southward like a lake,
and, between us and the water, ambitious Wash-,
ington stretching itself along and along, like
the shackly files of an army of recruits.
Oaks lore tho soil of this terrace. There
are some noble ones on the undulations before
the house. It may be permitted even for ono.
who is supposed to think of nothing but pow
der and ball, to notice one of these grand trees.
Let tho ivy-corered stem of the big oak of
Camp Cameron take III place in literature I
And now, enough of scenery. The landscape
will stay, but the troops will not. There are
trees and slopes of green sward elsewhere, and
the shrubbery begins to blossom, In these bright
days of May, before a thousand pretty homes,
The tents aud tent Hfo aro mora interesting for
the moment than objects which cannot decamp.
The old villa serves us for headquarters, It
is a respectable place, not without its preten
sions. Four granite pillars, as truo grit as if
the two r residents Adams had lagged them on
their shoulders all tne way trom Vjuiucy, Massa
chusetts, make a carriage-porch. Here Is the
Colonel in the big west parlor, the Quartermas
ter and Commisiary in the rooms with sliding
doors on the cast, tho hospital upstairs, aim so
on. Other room, numerous as the cells in a
monastery, servo ns quarters for tho engineer
company. These dens are not, monastic iu as
pect. Tho house is, of course, a Certosa, sq
far as tho gentler sex ure concerned; but no
anchorites dwell here at present. If the seventh
disdained everything but soldiers, faro which
it does not common civility would require that
it should do violence to its disinclination for
comfort and luxury, aud consume the stores
sent down by ardent patriots in New York.
The cellura of the villa overflow with edibles,
and in the grcenhquse is a most appetizing. ar
ray of barrels, boxes, cans, and bottles, shipped
here that our Sybarites might not sigh for the
fleshnots of home. Such trash may do very

peace, halt hostility ; but when

then every soldier should drop gracefully to the
simple ration, aud censo to dabble with frying
puns. Conks to their aprons, and soldiers to
their guns.
Our tents aro pitched on a level clover field
sloping to tho Iront for our parade ground.
Wo uso the old wall tout without a fly. It is
is necessary to live in ono of. these a while, to
know the vast superiority of the Sibley pat
tern. Sibley's tent is a wrinkle taken trom
savago life. It is the Sioux buffalo skin lodge,
or Tepee, improved a cone truncated at the
top and fitted with a movable apex for ventila
tion. A single tent-pole, supported upon a
hinged tripod of irou, sustains the structure.
It is compactor, more commodious, healthier,
and handsomer than tho ancient models. None
other should be used in permanent encamp
ments. For marching troops, the French
Tcnte ttahri is n cnpilnl shelter.
Still our fellows niaimgu to bo at homo as
they are. Some of our model tents are types
of tho best style cf temporary cottages. Young
hous keepers of limited incomes would do well
to visit und take heed. A whole elysium of
household comlort can be had out ot n teapot
tin ; a brace of cups tin j a brace ol plates
tin ; and a frying pan.
In these days of war everybody can see a
camp. Every one who stays at home lias n
brother, or a son, or a lover, quartered in ono of
the myriad tents that hnvo blossomed with the
daffodil season all over our green fields of the
North. I need not, then, describe our encamp
ment in detail its guard tent in advance its
guns in battery its flag-stnff -its companies
qimrterod in streets with droll and fanciful
names its officors' tents in the rear, at right
angles to the right of company tents its kitch
ens, armed with Captain Vielo's cnpit.il array
cooking-stoves its big marquees, "The White
Houso " and " Fort Pickens," for tho lodging nnd
messing of the new artillery company its
barbers' shops its offices. The samo, more
or less well arranged, can bo seen iu nil tho
rendezvous where the armies are now assem
bling. Instead of such description, then, let
me give tho log of n single day at our camp.
JOU11NAL OT A DAT AT CAMP CAMERON, BY WU
VATE W,, COMPANY I.
Boom I
I would rather not believo it j but it is yes
it is tho morning gun, uttering its surly
" Hullo I" to sunrise.
Yes, nnd to confirm my suspicions, here rat
tle in the drums nnd pipe in the fifes, wooing
us to get up, get up, with music too peremptory
t) be harmonious,
I rise up, stir mon stant, and glanco about
mo. I, Plivato W., chance, by reason of sun
dry chances, to bo a member of n company re
cently largely recruited, and bestowed all to
gether in a big marquee. As I lift myself up,
i sco others lift themselves up on those straw
bags we kindly call our nmttrasses. The tall
est man of tho legimcnt, Sergeant IC, is on one
sido of mo. On tho other sidp I am separated
from two of the fullest men of the regiment by
Sergeant M., another excellent fellow, prime
cook, and prime forager.
Wo aro all presently on our pins n. uu muse
lengthy continuations of his, and the two stout
gentlemen on their stout supporters. The deep
sleepers are pulled up from those abysses of
slumber where they had been choking, gurgling,
strangling, death-rattling all night. There is
for a moment a sound ot legs rushing into pail
Jaloons and arms plunging into jackets.
' Then, as th'o drums afad fifes wlilfie arid clat
ter their last 'notes, at the flap of Our tent ap
pears our orderly, and fierce in the morning
sunshine gleams his moustache ono month's
growth this blessed day. "Fall in, for roll
call I" he cries, in a ringing voice. The or
derly can speak sharp, if need be.
We obey. Not " Walk in I " March in I "
"Stand in I" is tho order $ but "Fall In I" as
sleepy men must. Then the orderly calls off
our hundred. There are several boyish voices
which reply, several comic voices, a few mean
voices, and some so oarnest, and manly, and
alert, thai one says to himself, " Those are the
men for me when work Is to bo done I " I read
the character of my comrades every morning
in each fellow's monosyllable, " Here I''
Whon the orderly la satisfied that not one
of ns has run away and accentod n colonelcy
from the Confederate States since last roll-call,
he notifies thoie unfortunates wht are to be on
guard for the next twenty-four boars of the hon
or and responsibility placed upon their shoul
ders. Next, he tolls us whnt are to be the drills
of the day. Then, "Right facet Dismissed I
Break ranks I March 1"
With ardor we instantly seize tin basins, soap,
and towels, and invade a lovely oak grove at the
rear and left of our camp. Here is a delicious
spring into which we have fitted a pomp. The
sylvan scene becomes peopled with " National
Guards washing" a Scene meriting tho notice
of art as much as any " Dianaond her Nymphs."
Bnt we have no Ponssin to paint ns in the dewy
sunlit grove, few ot ns, indeed, Know now
pietnresque we are at all times and seasons.
Afterthis beau ideal of a morning toilet, comos
tho ante-prandial drill. Lieutenant W. arrives,
and gives us a little appetizing exercise in
"Carry arras I" "Support arms I" "By the
right flank, march I " " Double quick ''
Breakfast follows. My company meBses some
what helter-skelter in a big tent. We have very
tolerable rations. Sometimes luxuries appear
of potted meats and hermetical vegetables, sent
us by the fond Mew Yorkers, bach little knot
of fellowsj too, pooka something savory. Our
table furniture is not elegant, our plates are tin,
there is no silver iu our forks but (I la guerre, I
comme a la guciye, Let the scrubs growl I
Lucky fellows, if they suffer no worse hardships
tba'u this I
By and-by, after breakfast, come company
drills, bayonet practice, battalion drills, aim the
heavy work of the day. Our handsome colonel,
on a nice black nag, manoeuvres his thousand
men of the line-companies on tho parade for two
or tb,ree ljours. Two thousand legs Btep off ac
curately together. Two thousand pipe-clayed
cross belts whitened with infinite; pains and
waste of tlmti, and offering' a most inviting
mark to a foe reslrairi the beating bosoms of
a thousand brave', as they the braves, not the
belts go through the most intricate evolutions
unerringly. Watching these battalion move
ments, Private W., perhaps, goes off and in
scribes in his journal ' Any clever, prorup:
man, "with a mechanical turn, an eye for dis
tance, a notion of time, and a voice of com
mand, can be a tactician. It is pure pedantry
to claim that the maneuvering of troops is
difficult ; it Is not difficult, if the troops are
quick and steady. But to be a general, with pa
tience and purpose and initiative ah 1 " thinks
Private W., "for that you mnst have the man
of genius; and already in this war he begins
to appear out oi juassacnusetis ana eisewnere. '
Private W. avows, without fear, that about
noon, at Camp Cameron, he takes a hearty
diuner, and with satisfaction. Private W. has
had his ."casts in cot and chateau in Old World
und New. It is the conviction of said private
that nowhero nnd no-when has ho expected his
ration with moro interest, and remembered it
with more affection, than here.
In the middle hours of the day, it is in order
to get a toss to go to Washington, or to visit
some of the camps, which now, in the middle
of May, begin to form around the city. Some
of these I may criticiso before the end of this
paper. Our capital seems arranged by nature
to be protected by fortified camps on the circuit
of its hills. It may bo made almost a Verona,
if need be. Our brother regiments huva post
nearly as charming as our own iu theso fair
groves and ou these fair slopes ou either side
of us.
In tho afternoon comes target-practice, skir
mishing drill, more compauy or recruit drill,
and, at half Dust five, our evening parade. Let
mo not forget tent inspection, at four, by the
officer of the duy, when our band plays do
llciously. At evening parade, all Washington appears.
A regiment of ladies, rather indisposed to beau
ty, observe us. Sometimes the Dons arrive
Secretaries ol State, of War, of Navy or mil
itary Dons, bestriding prancing steeds, but be
striding them as if" 'twas not their habit often
of ati afternoon." All which the bad teeth,
pallid skins, and rustic toilets of tho fair, und
the very moderate horsemanship of the brave
privates, standing at case in the ranks, take note
of, not cynically, but as men of tho world.
Wondrous gymnasts are some of the seventh,
and, after evening parade, they often give ex
hibitions of their prowess to circles of admirers.
Muscle has not gone out, nor nerve, nor activ
ity, il these athletes aro to be taken as the types,
or even as tho leaders of the young city-bred
mcu of our time. All ihe feats of strength and
grace of the gymnasiums aro to be seen here,
and show to double advantage In the open air.
Then comes sweet evening. The moon rises.
It seems always full moon at Camp Cameron.
Every tent becomes a little illuminated pyra
mid. Cooking fires burn bright along the al
1f9. Tho bovs lark, sinir, shout, do all those
merry things that mako (ho entertainment of
volunteer service, aub genua muuu iuu. uu,
mild and amused, the fairest lady of all that
visit us.
At Inst, when the songs have been sung and
il, lmnrtrvrt rumors of the dav discussed, at ten
the intrusive drums. and scolding fifes get to
gether and stir up a concert, always premature,
called tattoo. Tho seventh regiment begins to
peel for bed ; at all events, Private W. does i
iu- .;.! w tttL-na ulian Ka nn. nrecious rood
IU1 BHIU ,. . tun,.-, n.b w j r R
care of his cuticle, and never yields to the lazy
ttiwl iinwtinlpHnmn hatiit nf uoldiers sleeping in
the clothes. At taps half-past ten out go the
lights. If they do not, presently comes the
sentry's peremptory command to put them out.
Then, and until the dawn of another day, a
cordon of snorers inside of a cordon of sen
tries surrounds our national capital. The outer
cordon sounds its " All's well j" and tho Inner
cordon, slumbering, echoes it.
And that !h the history of any day at Camp
Cameron. It is monotonous, it is not monot'
ouous, it is laborious, it is lazy, it is a bore, it
Is a lark, it la half war, half roace;.and totally
attractive, and, not to be dispensed with from 1

OUH AtlVANCE INTO VIRalNIA.
Meantime the weeks went on. May 23d ar.
rived. Lovely creatures with their taper fingers
had been brewing a flag for us. Shall I say
that its red stripes were celestial rosy as their
cheeks ; Its white stripes virgin white as their
brows ; its blnu field cerulean as their eyes j and
its stars scintilating as the beams of tbo said
peepers? Shall I-y this? If I were a poet,
like Jeff. Davis and each and every editor of
each and every newspaper in our misbehaving
States, I might say it; aud, Involuntarily, I
have said It.
So the young ladies of Now York including,
I hope, her -who made my sandwiches for this
march hither had been making us a flag, as
they have made us havelocks, pots of jelly, bun
dles of lint, flannel dressing gowns,' embroidered
slippers for a rainy day in a camp, and other
necessaries of the soldier's life.
May 23d was the day wo were to get this
sweet symbol of good-will. At evening parade
appeared General Thomas, as the agent of the
ladies, the donors, with a neat speech on a clean
sheet of paper. He read it with feeling, and
private W., who has his sentimental moments,
avows that he was touched by the general's
earnest manner and patriotic words. Our
colonel responded with his neat speech, very
apropos. The regiment then made its neat
speech, nine cheers, and a roar of tigers very
brief and pointed.
There had bee'n a note of preparation in
General Thomas's remarks, a " Virginiat cave
canem !" And before parade was dismissed,
we 'saw our officers holding parley with the
colonol.
Something iu the wind I As I was strolling
off to see the sun set and the ladies on parade,
I began to hear' great, Irrepressible cheers
.bursting from the streets of the different com
panies. "Urucrsto oe reaay to marcn at a moments
