On Tuesday noxt the troops con
posing the South Carolina quota of
the v-olunteers called for by the Presi
dont will begin to roll into Columbia,
becoming very soon thereafter re
gularly enlisted soldiers in the Uni
ted States army. Thoro is no longer
any real doubt as to where the troops
are to be assemblod. - Governor
Ellerbe has dotermined to bring
them bore and has selected Hyatt
park, or rather an excellent field in
the immediate vicinity of the park,
as tho point for the pitching of the
tents and tho t-slablishment of the
camp. Thoro is practically no doubt
that the troops will remain here after
they are mustered in until thogovern

the front or the getioral point of
mobilization of southern troopp,whinh
is expected to be either Chickamauga,
Atlanta or Richimoti-d, if Columbia
doeis not put. i,i her chin and get in
on the band wagon. In this
wholo gectiorn of the sout h no bottor
placo for assembling of the troops
could be found than selected. It is
one of tho highest points in central
South Carolina, tho ground is well
d rained. t here are two minoral springs
in closo proximity to t hocamp ground,
and it is only two miles from the
city, being reached by electric car
line and by a macadam ropd. Messrs.
Hyatt, Marshall and other property
holders there have offered the gov
ernor everything that will be needed.
All baggage, eqnipments, etc, will be
carried to the camp freo of charge by
the electric company.
It was known yesterday morning
that this city had been practically
agreed upou at last as the rendez
vous for tho volunteers from this
State, and that the war department
had intimated that it would mako the
necessary change in its orders, but
Governor Ellerbo would not gn that
far in what ho had to say about it.
It was about 1 o'clock when ho made

looking to the formation of a battal

He has been very anxious to get a
chance to move to the front. His
