REMINISENCES OF THE P.\L
MKTTO REGIMENT-[iTS D)IS
--Considering its opportunities fir ta'ctic
Sexereise, we regardl the Palmetto Regi
menr, a *well-drilled an'] well-disciphirid
corps. Every one knows, it was hrrrie'd
ont, fro-n the time of its organiiza'imn, to the
ive services of the camnpaign, with scarco
preparation eniough to becorue acquainted
with the rudiments of the soldier's duty.
If wye except, indeced, tho fe' idrills on the
Island of L'dos, it was entirely without
instruction in the tactics till ius arrival nit
nebla in the beginning of sutmmet. To
engage itn tactical itistruetiptn duritig the
stege of VeraCruz, was altogether imoprac
l' icable; and out of this time, the regime~nt
was constantly on the march. But while
in garrison at Puebla regular exercise was
fairly begun. Thie utmoist diligence was
exerted to reurder thu troops aicturate in
evoluttitns; aind the ell'arts maide by tie
.officers itsthis particular, wtere repaid wit h
frappy success. Improvemetnt wnent on at
a rapid pace, and, in a shotrt ti:r~e. the re
,gament was more than respiectable in the
performance of its vairious exercises. In
alie school of the batttrliun it w:as expert;
and its execution ini the evoltutionis ofi the
itne was highly creditable. Somte compa
flies dirnishdteselves in the race
Simprovement. This honor will be grant
~ed, we believe, to comtpinies lI, F, anmd
I. Ins the manual, in moarchitng, in tihe
Vschool of the soldier arid compainy, they
could be brought into competition with
also, they exhibited an active spirit (if in
provement. We do not make these dis
tifictiotis invidiously, or '01.11' OWO j:ild'
ment ; but with a view of rendering justice
to those who had ambition to excel'; and
they were made in accordance with the
opiuions of in litTerent spectators. and of
the superior oflicers of the Regiment, of.
ten.publicly expressed. It was generally
admitted, that company F, held first rank
in the manual, and in. neatness of person
anl arms, and that company D1 was enti
iled to second rank. On one occasion af
ter iuspectihg the lattor company, Genl.
Shields. struck vith the manly bearing of
the-men. and with te great neatness of
iheir persons and accoutrements, walkcl
up to the lieutenant in command, and ex
clanimed,-- Sir, any man migit be proud
to command such a company."
1Jt itf these companies xcelled in the
ptnticulrs above mentioned. they were
surpassed, perhaps, by companies ,...
and G, in goo I order and sobriety. We
di not wish, hwever. to posh this con
parison any forther. Every co npany In
the regiment deserves praise for its marked
anid rapid alvancement. There was no
one but what male efforts to imnprove.
This-wi maifesm to all; for this spirit I
showed its,.lf in outward form. In a short
ii-ne the whole aispect. of the regiment
changed. The men d iffed their citizens
clothes, and put on the neat blue jaieket
aid cap of the regular army. They bright
ened their muskets astonishinglv, and ren
dered their persons and accoutrements neat
and pr.oper. They began, also, to mirch
well the cadence step. so becoming in mi
litary maneuvres, and to carry themselves
erect like true souldiers, At these manifest
strides of improvement, the fl-id ollicers
of the regiment, begin to hold tip their
heads a little, atnd to encontage hopes of
future usefulanss an-t ditincti-m. It wAs
easy to see they were growitng proud of
the Palmnettoes. Overlboking the bAld
and resolute spirit that glowed in their ho.
sons', they h-id hitherto almost yielded
themselves a prey to desponde:try, on ac
count of the awkward. uicauthly aspect of
of the men. Bnt now bright gleams
hope re-anituated their hearts. and they
cherished the highest excpectation-for their
beloved regiment. The attention of iy
stiders was likewise attracted. II its
marchings through the streets of the city.
crowds of spectators of b1oth sexes flicked
Ito see the regiment, and it was scarcely
recognised by the ifficers aud soldiers of
the artiy, its old associates on the march.
InI passing a Church, one Sunday, where
rnumber of oflicers and sildiers were co.
lected.and among ibet.the general in-chiel,
his staff. and other high ofticers of nome, thu
regiment was mistaken for the Gih infai
try-oneof the most showy and best drilled
corps it' the army.
Hut.it was iii good ordqr, and honora
ble demeanor, that lay the chief excellence -
of tie Palmetto Regiment.. .1i these par

If we inqinire inito the causes of this r:t
pid i mptrovemtet, o'i this superiority ini
poit of getteraml cooluct, exhibited ini thle
Regimetnt, we will ftndl thiem amrribuotable
mainly to two eireatmostines. First, the
intelligenice and high -beating of tie young
meni in the regiment. And se::in.iv, the
kindc, though firm rdisciphline ittroluced by
its much lam'ned and estimable colotiel.
Few regimnen:s ever enitered the service
oour counatry with the same degree ofiti
tellig.ence and totne. These chamracteris
tics are ruost usuarlly found arrong corn
missioned oflicers only; httt in the Pal
rnettJ R-gitment. they extended to non
ommissiotned ollicers and privates, miany
f whotm wcrc liberally educated aml well
ared gentlemmen. Thtmy had all thec feel
ngs, too, of an enligten ad state pride, which
nade themn high -mitndel art] chivalrous,
aind caused t herm to shuni all low an it de
gradintg, practices ; calcuilated to affect
injuriously the character of the regimnetnt.
This spirit among these young inent had a
nmost powe-rful itfluetnce mn thme regimcent.
It was a lump of leaven, that leavetned
the whole body. It elevated the standard
of character, aind intronluuted a gentlemanly
deportment among the men, for which
th-ey were noted in the aroty. It paved
the way, also, for tho great improvement
matnifested ini the regiment. By creatintg
a prtoper self respect, atid excititng a hiisi
feeling of state pride. ifired the mnen with
an ambiiomn in exeel, which urged them to
submiit cheerfully to the restraint of moilita
ry discipline, an-i to strive to perform well
the duties of the soldier.
These hteh souledu sentiments atnd this
elevation oft character formewd a solid basis
upon which to erect the admirable super.
struemture of moral government, exercised
by Got. Butler. *With such an admiixmure
of initellectual antI mortl feeling,. thters
was cert ainly no need tof int roducing sever
ity of discipline, or of oncouragttg a prin
eiple of slavish fear. The power of mnoral
suzsion wasa almost snci::ient to secure all
ippeal to the h'nor of me'n acluated by
motives so elevated and honorable, would
exert a moire powerful influence than all
he terrors of physical i1enalties. The rea
Iv mind of Coh Butlor soon discovered
11iis secret. He read at a glance Ifie mo
lives by which the young men were actti
ated, and catching up the springs of their
actiotn, he iegulnted them to his own -taste
and fancy. Ii his goverumnit, he seidoni
resorted to the infliction of physical. pun
ishment, hut achieved his purposes alhost
exclusively by tihe influence (of moral pow
er. He acqiirel at most ahsolute con
trol over the men-carrying his plans, and
iing his ends, by appealing to -their
onor as gentleinen ; by stirring up their
unhiiin ; anl by exciting amoti them
feelings of emulation and rivalry. Wtile
an-ig oilier volunteer carps, and anoing
lie regulars. the disgracefi pionishieut
)f glose confineme'i on bread and water,
uf bucking. ironing &!, were put in daily
practice, he made mnost of 'his coirrectionq
ur misdeineaors by speech making. If
lie wishedl to punish for neglect of duty, or
for improper conduct, a pbtldic reprimand
was his method. When he ;wished to in
eiie to imnprovement. lie ilirodiced the
principle of rewards rather than, of punish.
m nits. To urge the men, for instance. to
appear neat in their perstiii, and to has
iow labor cin their guns and accoutreineits,
lie would exempt from military duty every
d.iy, those who excelled mostly in these
particulars. lie punished only in those
eases wikch were ubsolutely necessary, in
which the ollenders could not be %% orked
tipon by moral influences. And it is as
toniihing what results this discipline pro.
