At about ten o'clock crowds began to ar
rive on the review grounds, which are situ
ated about one mile from Parola and di
rectly in front of the Panola Academy.
The piazza of this institution of learning
was crowded, and ever where o0 and about
the grounds were the bright and dashing
uniforms of cavalrymuen, and intermingled
in the vast crowdl tha white heluiets of the
Manning Guards were conspicuous.
The Manning brass band enlivened the
gay scene by issuing forth familliar airs,
and the young folks took advantage of the
music to talk love, politics, and war.
About twelve o'clock the officers of the
Connor Mounted Rifles and the Hampton
Light Dragoons mounted their horses, and
in a short time the stentorian voices of the
first seargents were ringing in the air
commanding the men to "fall in " Down
the road was the rendezvous, and the com
panies whea formed were turned o-er to
their respective commanders-the Dra
goons to Captain Richardson and the
Rifiesto Captain Dingle and these were
under Lieutenant Colonel Brailsford and
Major A. J. Richbourg, respectively. Be
fore the parade began it was ascertained
that General Watts would not be present
and that Major Locis A ppelt, of the staff of
General Stoppelbein, was detailed to rep
resent his chief. Major Appelt was
promptly on hand. and had assigned to
him as a staff Ma;or A. J. Richbourg and
Lieutenants J. M. Richardson and W. S.
The parade then began and Col. Brails
ford put the battalion through the field
movements. which they executed in a re
markably fine manner. and especially so
was their "platoon wheels." These wheels
were exeonted as if the men and horses
were on pivots. and in several of these
movements regular United States soldiers
would b put to their trumps to beat. The
Colonel then bronght the battallion up in
front of the reviewing officers, saluted and
gave the command. "Fours right," making
the battalion ride the entire length of the
field and in full view of the eight hundred
spectators. He then brought them around
to pass in review. As the battallion came t
arching towards the reviewing officers,
ajor Appelt advanced the length of his
orse in front of the staff, and then with
unovered head he reviewed the1
assing columns and then with
he commanders of the companies arrived
>pposite, they promptly saluted.
After the review, the reviewing officer ac
empanied Colonel Drailsford, Major Rich
ourg, Captains Dingle and Richardson,
and Lieutenants Richbourg and Richard
sn proceeded to inspect the arms, accon-1
rements, horses and uniforms, and these
rere found to be in excellent condition.
'he number of men was sixty-eight rank
ad file. They were all splendidly mount
ed and equipped. and the inspection was
ery creditable and satisractory.
After the inspection the men remounted,
ad after a few well-executed commands,
hey were brought to a front and marched
o writhin a few feet of the reviewing officer.
ol. Brailsford saluted, and Major Appelt
ode forward and before dismissing the
oldiers made the following remarks:

reached me that General Stopplebein, our
Brigadier Genendl would be with us to-day
was delighted, for I knew that he would
meet with two of the crack companies of4
his brigade, but when later I received a let

him here in order that he could through

for his kind andl courteous invitation, and

to lend charm and grace to this ever-to-he

who are here as yonr guests, have two
purposes in view in coming here: One is
to dazzle the eyes of the mothers with their
pretty uniforms and the excellence of their

purpose-is to capture the girls. With this
warning I caution you to look well to your
fair ones and order the parade dismissed.
At the close of the reviewing officer's re
marks, the band played Dixie amid cheers
proposed by Col. Brailsford.
The Manning Guards were then formed
and Captain Davis took his men, about
thirty strong. throngh a thorongh course
of diilling, and as the boys marebed past
the crowds, their even step illicited ap
