Dri1ll of tho Hampton Rifle Guard -
Spooches by Major homias and Cap
R)ou--vAv. August 29.----On Tos
day, 27th inst., the Hampton Rifie
Giard appeared in'fifll iniforin for
the first timo, and presented quito
a showy appearance. Their uniform
is a (ark b)Wlue coat, ti immed with
rod, white pants, and cap to match
coat. The ladies say ou1r uniform
is very pretty and becoming, and
wo aro perfectly satisfed with their
tasto. The company formed at the
depot and marched to the vacant
lot in rear of the Methodist church,
whe~rc qjuito a number 6f ladies and
citizens wvas assembled to witness
the drill. Among the spectators
was our newly elected major, w~hom
thme Guards acknowledgod by pre
senting arms as he passed. The
company was then exeroised in the
manual of arms, after wich followed
the company drill including skir
mish drill. On this last the company
w~as compliincntod by our major.
Modesty forbids us, as a member of
tihe company, from saying howv well
the manouvres w'as exccated, or
howv the girls watched the par
ticular "fellow" in whose perform,.
anco they were especially inter
ested. Night closing -in put an
end to field exercisos. The Guards
were then marched to the residence
*of Captain Dosportos and being
comfortably seated woero waited on
by the young~ ladies with refresh
ments furnished by Mrs. Desportos
amnd Mrs. Ruff.' This was 'by no
means the least pleasing feature of
the day (we speak for t~he Rifle-~
men). After thafnks had boon
returned to the ladies by Liouton
ant Hinnant for the refreshment,
throo rousing cheers wero givon and
Captain Desportes called on Major
Thomas to address the company.
Major Thomas r'espondecd very
happily in an impromtu, as'follows:
JFe3low-SMoliers of the llamnpton
10fle Ghuar(l :-I expected, wvhen I
came up)on the grounds, that the0
enjoyments of thme evening wore to
be furnished at the expense of the
H~amp~ton Rifle Guard,. but as you
have called on me for my con tribu
tion, I shall respond briefly. Indeed,
1 would be wanting in common
gratitude did I mi0t *tako this occa
sion to express to you my sincere
thanks for your continued confl.
*doncio inl my foeoblo- r'vices. To
say that I appreciate your kind
ness is but an ihmb~lo acknowledg
mont of my inability to find words
sufficeont to express to you my
thanks. Raised by y'our unsought
suffragos to the highest military
- ofilee in your gift, singled out from
among my follow~oitizons, many of
Iylom soar abovo m in lofty intel
loet and military genius, i an
loior tiat I well may be prou of.
If ill the course of our livos it should
Iover become necessary for us to
lay asido the peaceful pursuits of
life, and in oqIoying "stern duty's
behest" placo ourselves on a war
footing, I feel, vIen I cast my eyes
along your sorried ranks, and s0
you standing before mo il solid
array, a "living wall of bristling
bayonets," that I can venture the
assortion that the spotless folds of
your battlo-flag will bo stained with
some of Carolina's warmest blood
ere it triils in lime dust of dishmon.
or. As~ regards yoir battalion, it
remains for you to say whether you
shall have a battalion in name or a
battalion in reality. You muist
bear iin milnd that for your com
mianding oflicer to succeod, 110 must
be ably seconded by his subordinate
officers and his mon. Do this, and
with practico and an emulating spirit
of en thusiasim porVading your rink
and file, you will yet mako tho
celebrated Columbia Battalion bo,
Hove that you aro "foomen worthy
of their steel." Again tendering
you my thanks for the honor con
forre;d, I will now bid you adien.
Captain Desportos was then
called on, and said
Ludies, Gen tlemcon, ahd Coknnrades
of the hLaIpton Rile G/uard :
This is a proud day for you, and a
proder day for him who has the
homor to commandail( you ; for on this
day we see tho fruition of our hopes
an the final burial of all ourappro
hiniijonus of fajlur.. [Cheus.] Near
ly two years ago, in the' fiace of a
hostilo government, surrounded by
foes in every shape, you had the
hardihood to organizo for the
defence of your altars and your
firesides, and for the overthrow of
the worst governmont the world has
over witnessed. Truo to the ho-ri
tago bequbathed you 'by fathers
and brothers, in -many instances
dead iijon the field of battle ; true
to the baptism received from 'your
own wounds, you spurned the flim
sy guiso supposed to exist in the
words club and president, the night
your company leupod into existence,
and you assembled and flung to the
breoze, upon the very bayonets of
the enomy, .u1 inspiring, and proud
inamo of "HaImpton Riflo Guard.'
And with your flag, now soiled by
service--preseonted by the beautiful
young ladies who surround you,
and for wlioso -approving smiles
you would charge upon an abattis of
bristling bayonet,' into the lnoutlf
of flashing- artillory-you marched,
neither wavering to the right nor
the left, but waxing bolder and
stronger until you placed it with
your peorloss governor upon Caro
lina's citadel, crowned with civil
liberty, independence andi vi'ctoit !
[Cheers,] To-thmAadies, to wvhom
we are so largely iiidebted for the
handsome uniform we wear', w
would expreCss our gr'atitudo. Wec
are taught that their fragilo naturc
clahns our protection, and we plodge
ib to them forever
"D)simulao our bondfage as wo will,
"is Woman, woman rulecs us stinl."
My comriad1es, it roemains only foi
me to add a wvord of caution, and. te
beg you~ to sleep on your arms, that
at'the first sound of alarm you may
in "double time" prepare for action.
Forget not that the enemies of ' vir~
tue, intelligence, and constitutional
liberty are still in your midst, and
they outnumber you more than
two to one. Boe not deceived, and
above all permit not trivial matterd
of minor local impjor.tance to caumsc
you to fall away from the party of
safety, and thme high pr1inlciple9 61
truo D~emocracy as exemplified in
thea p)oo and sot forth in the
character of the "tallest man in
American politics"-A~ado HalmptLon,
