All the camps were flooded, and the men were put out spreading tarpaulins over the large piles of supplies that are at every camp. Except tho manoeuvring by the Twenty-fifth Infantry this afternoon Iwhen tho sun broke through the clouds, all drills wer"us pended until Monday, and hundreds of the sol diers spent the day In writing letters to the "glr's they left, behind them."

Company II of the Twenty-third, commanded by Capt. Stephen O'Connor, la yet to arrive. They left their post at Fort Brown, at the mouth of the Rio Grande River, on last Wednesday, and they are most probably coming by water ta Morgan City and will take the train arriving here to-morrow. The troops arriving at or passing through New Orleans n route to Chattanooga or Mobile report that they received fiowcrs, cigars, or lunches at ovory way station at which they stooped, and at moat of the places tbo local mllltla and bands turned out and greeted them with "The Star Spangled Banner," "Dixie," and othor airs. This was particularly the case at Jen nines. La., Bay St, Lonls, Blloxl, Mississippi City, and Meridian, Mhi. Fire thousand peo ple at Meridian, halt of whom were women, had gathered to extend them a warm welcome, but no one was prepared for the demonstration that followed. The men yelled until they wero hoarse, and women beat tattoos with fans and filled the air with roses. Tho regimental bands played martial airs for half an hour until the crowd poured in with the rebel yell. It waitho biggest demonstration ever had In Meridian, Gen. Shatter will not arrlvo here from San Francisco until Monday, and it will not be known definitely until then what 1 to be done with the soldiers here. Inspector-General Law ton explains the deflection of part of the Hoops from the city to Chlckamanga as meaning that the plan of tbo War Department nbw is to hold the regulars until a number of olunteer regi ments can be formed and placed in the fiold. The troops will bo rapidly mobilized Into three divisions. The volunteers will bo divided and mixed among the regularc The troops are to bo quartered at Chick.amauira, where tho camp ing ground Is almost Idea). There Is lots of room, and the water supply Is Inexhaustible. Most of theso troops coming South, have been accustomed to colder climates than this and to camping grounds higher than the fair grounds. For these seasons It Is thought best to hold the troops In waiting at Chlckamauga rather than at New Orleans or Mobilo or at Tampa. "Whllo there are 108 acres of land In the fair grounds, yet that does not furnish a good, exer cise ground," continued Col. Lawton. " It Is too small. At Chlckamauga tbey havo plenty of space." It Is announced that there will be 10,000 or 20,000 men encamped here within the next ten days. The soldiers are allowed great liberty of action, and several hundred are to bo seen every evenlnc or night along the principal streets of the city, giving New Orleans a garrison town look. Their presence has stirred up the latent patriotism of the city. The stores nnd theatres nre now f ullr blossoming with American flags and bunting-. Wnat has created a surprise here Is the fact tbs t so many of the regular officers and ssldlers are Southern men. Nearly all of the men In the Eighteenth Regiment are Texans nnd Tennes seeans. fine, hale, muscular looking fellows. The regiment has beon stationed in Toxas, and I as been lnrgely recrultod there. The routlno of the camp Is unchanged. The men havo beon unfortunate in striking a succession of storms. The troops are going throueh every military drill. Iho fair grounds aro rather small for a regimental drill, but there aro many fine roods running from them fit for marching. The regiments from Texas havo a great deal of this drilling to do and the offi cers want to keep them in practice. The Twenty-third is considered cood for thirty miles a dayotor on v rough country.

Tho officers nre all of opinion that a large party of the army of invasion for Cuba will leat e from here. Somo of the light artil lery expect to lenvohercfoiCnbawlthlu a few days. The Fourth Artillery. stationed at the Jackson barracks in this city, received their orders to day to leave at onco for Chlckamauga Park, and ulll lenve to-morrow. They received orders eight days ago to be roady to move to CblcLamaugo, but have apparently been for gotten since. Major Qtilnn has come back from the lower const, after ha lng spout two days at Fort Jack son and St. 1'hlllp and In the torpedo rene The Major declined to say If the mines and ex plosives had been lutd, and if so, where they were placed. A channel ulll bo left for the safe passago of friendly ships, but this channel may be closed at any time. Whether closed or open, it will be possible to pilot vessels through by a device known only to United States engineers. Tha ret enue cutter Smith has been designated as pilot vessel for this purpose, and she will pro ceed from this port to Port Eads in a day or two, should thero arise the necessity of com pleting the system of mines and tor pedo floats. Major Quins, Chief United States Engineer, has received additional orders from the Secretary of War's office forbid ding giving information relative to tbo move ments of troops nnd tho condition of fortifica tions and of scacoast defonccs. Similar orders camo a few dajs ago to Lleut.-Commandor Wadhams, In charge of tbo Eighth Atlantia cost patrol district, and to Ensign Sonn of the local branch of the Ilydrogrsphlc Office.

All tha SsMlera Asilsaea ta Tkat rieadrsvooa llava Arrlraq. Modii k, Ala., April 23. The martial spirit of the average citizen is becoming mora and more apparent down here in Mobile. There Is no doubt that it Is increased lav the presence of the large body of Uncle Sam's troops now encamped about five miles from tho olty. The camp has at last begun to assume the proportion of a settled encampment, and from either side of the rail road us far as Iho oyo can roach into the pine woods may be seen the white canvas tents glit tering in tho April sunshine. The list of the troops that will b quartered at this place arrived about 11 o'clock this morn ing, They were the Second Battalion of the Nineteenth Infantry, which came from Fort Braoy, ijiko Superior. Mich. They met with a rousing reception from their comrades In arms whea the train rolled Into the camp ground, and were soon on their way to Join tho other four companies ot tha regiment which arrived yesterday. The two battalions of this reglmeat met in Chicago last July, which was the first time they hud been in line since the civil war. Of courso they are very much re joiced to find that they aro together again, though for a time it was thought that the Second Battalion would be diverted to Chlckamauga. The onlr regiment which failed to reach here out ot the original assignment Is the Second, nhlch has bten diverted to Chlckamauco. Tho loyalty of tho people Is fast rcmlntr to the surtaco now that they realise that tho war Is on In earnest, and this Is shown by the fact that on many of tho houses which face the historic Spring Hill avenue "Old Glory" is flung to tho breeze. At tho home of United States District Attorney M, D. Wlckersbam a very large stand of the national colors is flung to the breeze from the gallery, and its folds can be seen by the sol diers through bowers ot roses as they pats to and from the camp. The men at 4he camp lotm to be mora ana f fTi1aijrraiffti1iili1Wirr r.jMtftM rooru delighted with, the location of their camp the longer they remain in it. One of them said when asked by True Sotf correspondent if h did not find the drill ground rough! "Why, man, this Is heaven to what we hava been used to." "Where have yon been stationed I" waa the next question. "In Arizona," was tb reply. The first drilling waa done at the camp this afternoon. The First and Second battalions of the Eleventh Infantry were out on the drill ground for an hour and a half, and their move ments were watched admiringly by the crowd ot spectators which had gathered nt the camp soon after dinner. Major Gllbreath put tho Second Battalion through battalion drill, while tho four companies ot the First Battalion were put through tho company drill by their Captains. When the order to " Charge bayonets " was clven the colored population, of which there was a largo crowd presont, thought the soldiers looked so formid able that they Instinctively broko and ran sev eral feet before they seemed to reallzo that tho soldiers were not after them .with their new fangled bayonets, wbloh look more like bowle knives than bayonets. The camp was In good condition this after noon after the rains of last night, and It was an Ideal day. Late In the afternoon there was a great crowd ot spectators out at the camp. A platform was In course ot construction this afternoon by the railroad people, and the Mobile and Ohio will run tratns from Spring Hill ave nue to the camp to-morrow. The Second Battalion of the Nineteenth In fantry, which arrived this morning, was com posed of companies E, Capt. French; O, Capt. Smith; II, Capt. Hall, and A, Capt. Verneau, who was in command of the battalion en route to tbe camp. There are now about 4,000 officers and men in camp. Gen. Copplnger Is still In the city and has not yet moved bis headquarters to the camp, his tent not having arrived. The Plant line steamship Florida Is due in this city to-morrow to losd a full cargo of coal, some 2,000 tons. It Is presumed that this coal Is for the fleet. Orders for 1,200 tons of coal to be shipped by steamer for Motlco were received to day by ono of the local coal companies, but could not be filled because ot the prohibition of the Government against the shipment ot coal to for eign ports. Tho Government has askod tor and received full Information as to the quality of coal furnished to steamers In Mobile, the quan tity that can be supplied, tho price and other in formation for use In case of need, and will ask for bids soon from those who have facilities for furnishing large quantities of coal on short notice. Gen. J. W. Burke, Collector of the Port, set eral days ago stopped the export of a cargo of coal for Mexico and a cargo of cattle for Cuba. Ho assumed this authority before there had been any overt act of war, and his action has been Indorsed by tbe Department at Washington. ATLANTA A ltEXDEZrOUS. Tbe lalunteer Army Will B Stopped Tbere en Its nay to Cuba. Atlanta, Go,, April 23 The volunteer army will bo concentrated here after It has been assembled at certain places and prior to going to Cuba. This information was con veyed in a notification recolted by the Denartment of tbe Gulf here to-day from Gen. Miles. Although all the troops will not come at onco to Atlanta, this city will be their ultimate rendezvous, and from here they will be distributed to ports whence they will embark for Cuba. Tlic orders nay that Washington will bo used as the gathering point for all the militia from the East, Richmond "111 servo the sauio purpose for tho volunteers coming from tbe States bctttocn Virginia and Goorgln, and in Atlanta will bo concentrated the men of tho West, including tbe Paclfle elope The or ders further bay that the men will bo drilled and equipped at theno three places, and that when tbey are efficient, or when necessity ar rives, the) will bo rushed to Atlanta, and final disposition made of them as developments may demtnd. . Preparations nre already in progress hero for the reception of this vast body of men. It Is known thas Fort McPhorson, where formerly was stationed tho Fifth Regiment, will bo pressed into service The post has extensive barracks and is well provided with water, while the immense drill ground and unoccupied plots offer sites for tho erection of temporary barracks. Anticipating that the fort will not bo sufficient accom modation for the final mobilization, the officials of the Department ot the Gulf have secured an option of Forest Park, 300 acres of meadow land, situated a mile from the post and accessible to steam and electric railroads. Steps looking to the provisioning of this big body of men have also been undertaken, and conditional bids secured on immense quantities ot flour, moat, and coffee. The mobilization orders are effective Immediately. TItOT XATIOXAT, aVARTIBlIElf. Major I,Uid aaja IHaar Will Hesitate ta BalUt as Individual eloateera. Trot, April 23. Major James H. Lloyd, com manding tbe Thirteenth Battalion, said this evening: " If the men are ordered out as companies of tbe National Guard they will turn out with full rank It they can retain their company organiza tion, their officers, and the identity of the bat talion, even as the nucleus ot a regiment. There will be few refusals to follow where their officers lead. The orders of the Governor, who is Commander-ln Chief, will be obeyed to the letter." "But suppose that the men are asked to enlist as Individual volunteers I" "Thon I cannot predlot," answered Major Lloyd. " II jw many will respond I" "Tbere are a great many, a large majority, who undoubtedly feel It their duty to obey the call of the nation and tbe State for volunteers. But there are others who think that their obli gation s National Guardsmen, including the suppression of Insurrection, the enforcement of law, nnd repelling invasion, do sot Includo an aggressive campaign In foreign lands. That being the case, they will weigh their duty to volunteer just as if they were not members of the National Guard, Married men, particularly, are balancing the needs of dependent families and tbe wages the men now receive against the 913 a month for military service in the United States Army. It Is Impossible to deny that their position deserves serious and at least respectful consideration." "Do you think tbere will be a sufficiency of volunteers!" " All that tho Government will need," said the Major, "Men stop me on tbe street and say they would like to be recruited under ma if the battalion, as a battalion, should not go to tbo front and If I should be at liberty to organize a volunteer regiment." spanjsji captain tronnixB, Doesn't Know Mbnlbfr to Ilcmaln la Yaafcra Pari or ta Hall.

Tllllnghast left for Troy at 6 o'clock to-night. Ha aald ha did not expect tho call from the President for troops before Monday, although it might reach the Governer to-morrow through the malls. For the first time since the present crisis bas been on the Adjutant-Generdl's office will be open on Sunday. The Adjutant-General and his assist ant. Col. Phlsterer, will be on hand to-morrow, when arrangements Will be completed to securo nn early response to the President's call. Al ready thousands of enlistment blanks havo been distributed among the Guard organiza tions, and others will be sent out on Monday. It was generally understood that the Presi dent was to call for 100.000 volunteers, and that this State's quota would be some 8,000 men, Ou this supposition the plan outllnod In The Sun this morning would have been adopted by Gov. Black in recruiting tho regiments which were to be sent from this State in response to tho President's call. Now that the President has Increased the call to 125,000 men and the indications being that New York will be asked to furnish 12,000, a change In the plan is necessary. The new plan to be adopted is likely to create as much apparent HI feeling among the Na tional Guard organizations aa the one de tailed this morning, as probably not moro than half ot the existing regiments. It that many, can bo allowed to v 'unteer as organizations. The present National Guard organization alone could furnish eighteen regi ments, and a call for 20,000 men would be noo essnry to enable tho Governor to permit all of tbcm to fill up and volunteer as regiments. Thero are seven regiments In New York, four In Brooklyn, two In Buffalo, the Tenth Battalion In Albany, which Is classed as a regiment, and fortr-four separate companies, which would be formect Into four regiments if their services wero utilized as volunteer organizations. The 12,000 mon that this Stato will have to furnish will be mostly infantry, and tho War Department will undoubtedly call upon tho Got ernor to furnish nino regiments of infantry, oach comprising 1,250 ofllcors and men, which ttould be 11,200. This ttould leave 7.)0 of this State' quota to bo filled, which would probably be moae up of ono battalion ot cavalr) of four troops of 100 men each, nnd ttt o batteries of light artillery of 150 men oach. The cavalry organizations of tbe Guard are In New Yore and Brooklyn, while thero aro four batteries, two in New York, one in Brooklyn, and one In BInghamton. In deciding upon a plan to raise this State's quota, the first consideration ot the Stato au thorities will be, no doubt, to furalsh a well equipped and drilled force in as short a time as possible. In considering this subject, however, it must be borne in mind that the general Government is likely to call at any time in addition to the volunteer! upon the National Guard of this State for serrlco along the Long Island coast nnd about New York harbor. It is not thought proper to take all of tbe National Guard that is willing to volunteer to fill tho expected call for 12.000 men. It Is, there fore, considered necessary for the State author ities to make selections of the National Gunrd organizations, which under tho changed plan may be allowed to retain their regimental or ganizations, and allowed to volunteer as such after recruiting up to the roquired strength of 1,250 men, as outlined In Tug Sun to-day. How to make these selections when nearly all of the organizations aro ready to volunteer is a problem which the Stale .authorities are striving to solve, with n view of mini mizing the feeling among tho guard organizations not designated b them to volunteer as such. As thero nre probably 75,000 men outside the Natlonnl Guard who want to enter tho United States service as volunteers, and who have signified such desire to Gov. Blaok. it Is considered proper that some consid eration sbonld bo given to these men. It is not unlikely that one or two volunteer regiments outside of the National Guard might be accepted by the Governor, though this has not been determined. One objection to selecting regiments of tho National Guard to volunteer as such under the plan proposed when It was thought that but 8,000 men would be asked for from tbls Stale was that their organization differed from that of tho regular army. This objection has been removed by Congress authorizing the President to accept such mili tary organizations as exist under State law s. While no plan for recruiting this fatato's quota of men under tbe President's proclamation has been definitely determined upon by the State authorities, it will follow that outlined In The Si'N this morning, with tho exception of tbo probable selection of some regiments ot tho present National Gunrd to volunteer as organizations. Tbe pltn will not be adopted until the Stats authorities receive full Instruc tions from tbe War Department detailing Just what will be expocted from this State, as re gards the number of infantry, cavalry, and artillery which will be required of us. Tbo plan outlined In The Scv to day seems to be objectionable to some of tho Guard organi zations. It Is stated, houcvci, that tbe plan to send regiments of the National Guard as they now exist meets with probably as many objections, if not more, than the other plan. It is likely, however, that a limited number of organized regiments of tbs Guard and one or two regiments formed of separate companies will bs accepted under tbe plan to be definitely decided upon as soon as the call is received offi cially. The regiments wnlch Now York Is to furnish will bs ready within two days after word comos from Washington. Tbe Now York State regiments. It Is said here. are not likely to take tbe Springfield rifle, with which tbey are at present armed, but it is be lieved tbey will be furnished with the Krag Jorgensen rifle now used by tbe regular army. Tbo Federal Government has 100,000 ot these guns on hand, and they are superior to the Mausor rifle, with which tbo Spanish soldiers are armed. This "ftornoonGov. Blnckrecelved a telegram from Assistant Secretary Roosevelt ot tbe Navy Department asking that tbe detail ot 203 men from tho State naval mllltla, which was made some time ago to man tbe auxiliary cruUer Yankee, be sent to tho Brooklyn Navy Yard at once, as the vessel bad boen fitted out nnd was ready for service, Adjt.-Qen. Tll llnghast Immediately directed Commander Miller of the State naval reserves to send the men to tho Brooklyn Navy Yard as soon ns pos sible. 1 be Adjutant-General nino directed Com mander Miller to send a division of telegra phers and signalmen toman the signal stations along the coast ot Long Island which aro al ready established at Montauk, Fire Island and Quogue. Stato Senator John Grant of Mnrgaretvllle, Delaware county, was ajt tbe Adjutant-Gcn-eial'a office to day and enlisted as a private In the separato company stationed at Walton, Delaware county. He remarked that, while be might like to go as a commissioned officer, ho thought that, as such opportunities were few, the only cham.c to see active service was to en list as n private. The Tenth Bittalton to-night, at a meeting In Its armory, volunteered its services to tbe Gov ernor upon condition that It be recruited up to a regiment, and that as far as practicable the re cruits bo taken from tbe former Tenth and Twcuty-flfth regiments, and that the present officers of the battalion bo continued as far as practicable. J. Meredith Read, who Is raising a regiment to bo known as the "Albany Rangers," has al ready Beoured 800 volunteers. The United States recruiting station here is receiving an unusually large number ot applica tions for enlistment, and about forty men were accepted yesterday and to-day, , - u otfAnnixkx itKamrr if. Interaret Oea. Tllflaiaastni riaa as a. Blew at Thlr Orranlsatlena. In an Interview authorized by Gov. Black and published exclusively in Tun Son yesterday. Gen. Tllllnghast said that the work of recruit ing the volunteers from the National Guard would be put in the hands ot the brigade commandori, that field and staff officers would be appointed by tho Governor and company officers selected by ballot by all ot tho commissioned officers of the brigade. Gen, Tllllnghast closed his Interview by saying that the enlisted men and officers would come as far ns possible, from the officers and men of tho National Gnard, all gaps caused by failures to volunteer being filled from men In civil life. In tbls arrangement the men and officers of the National Guard see a blow that they fear will result In the disintegration of the bodies they have spent years in raising to their present standard. They sea the promise that the integrity of tholr organizations would be preserved broken, and the National Guard going Into service In regiments tnado up of drafts from the various regiments in their brigade, and officered by men they have had no voice In putting over them. Tho result of this Is open resentment on the part of tbe rank and fllo of the Nntlonal Guard and dlspleasnre among the officers. Gen. Tllllnghast spoke on Friday of his satis faction at the largo percentage of men In the va rious mllltla organizations who had expressed their intention of enlisting tho moment tbe call for voluntoers was madoby tho Governor. Itcan be stated on authority that a very much smaller percentage of tho men ot this city will respond to the Governor's call unless they are assured at once that their Interpretation of the Adjutant-General's plans Is Incorrect, The idea of Gen. Tillinghnst's scheme that gained ground in this city yesterday wsb that six regiments were to be formed out ot the five brigades In this State. Tbe organization of those rrglmonts was to be loft to tho brigade commanders. As thero are three regiments In each brigade and It would not bo reasonable to take one regiment out of each, leaving tho otlierB to do homo duty. It was understood that tbe plan was to draw enough men from each regiment In a brlgado to make np one regiment. In the First Brigade this regiment was to be known aa tho Tlrst Regiment, New York Volunteers. Tho regiment mndo up ot the organizations In the Sacond Brigade was to be knotrn as tho Second Regiment, New York Vol unteers, and so on through the brigades. An additional regiment was to be made up afterward from all the brigades and some of the batteries and cavalry troops were also to be called in to make up New York State's quota. The fact that tho President's proclama tions calls for 125,000 men would of course bring the State's quota up to 10,000 men and chango these figures somewhat. Tho fact remained, however, that tbe New York cltv National Guardsmen could see nothing In this arrangement but thebreaklng up ot tbelr organizations, and they were red hot about It jestcrday. Added to this was what they regarded as an equal indignity, the placing over them of officers In the selection of whom thoy had no hand. There was deep gloom about Gen. Roe's ofilco in tbo Stewart building yesterdny. Gen. Roo nnd the members of his staff had evidently put the same construction on the out line of Gen. Tilllnghast's plans aa tho men had. Gen. Roo emphatically declined to say one word about the mattor. Gon. Roe was asked whether ho had been consulted about the plans made public by Gen. Tllllng hast, Again ho replied that he had nothing to say. That there was something In the wind was in 'dlcatod by the large numbor ot oiilcers who kept coming in and going out ot headquarters all day long. Among thoso who woro closeted with Gen. Roe nt didront times during tho diy were Major Andrews ot squadron A. Col. Greene of the Seventy first Regiment, Col. Ladd, Judge Advocate; Col. Hurry. Commissary; Col. Olln, Chief of Staff, and Majors Qrccr and Holland. These officers all' refused to be interviewed. Major Andrews,, when questioned, said: "It would be rank Insubordination for me it talk about tbe plans of ray superior officers. I will sav nothing at all be) ond tbls, that I am an officer in tho National Guard and am ready and willing to volunteer my services to my country when they aro wanted." Another officer said : "If the plan of Gen. Tllllnghast Is properly understood. It Is an outrageous thing. Tho National Guard have had ono promise slnco tho talk of their entering tho eervlco as volunteers began. That was that tho integrity ot their organlratlons would bo preserved and that tho oiilcers ttould bo retained. It was tbls promise that was responsible for the enthusiasm of tbe men when they were sounded last week. Now comes tho plan of breaking up all the regiments and put ting stnuizo oiilcers over tbo men. I do not bo liovo the men will stand It, and do not blame them in tbo least." SIICllIOAN MOBILIZATION.

The members of tho Massachusetts nav-il reserve who aro to man the monitor Catsklll, destined for Boston harbor, were surprised to-day by Commandant Casey at Lesgue Island by tbo announcement that they must formally enlist In the United States Navy It they continued In tho service. Those who wore unwilling to enlist or unable to do so would be at liberty to return to Boston. The term ot enlistment would bo for two yoars, or until tho dose of tho war with Spain. When the reserves were called to quarter at 10 o'clock they did not know this announcement was coming. It took them some time to con sider It, When they left Boston, many ot the mon had not arranged their buslnoas or prlvato affairs for a continued absonce. They hava been expecting dally to start ont with tho Catsklll, and havo been a little restive under the delay. Commandant Casey said that so far as possible the organization would be kept under one com mand intact. As far as known, the officers ot the battalion now in service will be commis sioned and hold their rank. The Boston mon believe that tbere Is a plan to divide them nnd detach some of their members to tho gunboat Vixen, which will aall In a few days. Her guns were put aboard of her to-day. After considering the proposition from Com mandant Casey, tho Boston reserves announced their wllllngnos to sign enlistment paper. Tb enlistments did not take place to-day. Seventy more reserves arrived from Massa chusetts this morning to complete tho crew of tho monitor Lehigh, the time ot whose depar ture is as yet Indefinite. The Catsklll, it I said, Is waiting fer a tug. Tho relnforcoments which arrived to-day were in command of Lieut, Horace F. Fuller. Of tho 105 members of the battalion only about twenty signified their willingness to enlist nssoamen in the navy in response to the announcement made by Commandant Casey. Tho other doclned deferentially, but firmly, to enlist at once, but Informed Capt. Casey they would consldor the mattor on tholr roturn to Boston. They said they had joined a Stato organization aa naval reserves with the Intention ot rendering service a such, but until the emergency appeared more pressing than at present they would decline to take the final step ot a two years' enlistment in tho navy until they could return to their homes and arrange their per sonal affairs. With this understanding the officers nnd men assigned to tho CatsWU went aboard of her, and she was anchored out in the river to-night. She will sail for Boston to morrow. Boston. April 23. The members of the naval brigade still hero feel that it is unfair that the Government should ask tho volunteers detailed to man the monitors to enlist until after they have fulfilled tholrmlssion in bringing the vessels to Boston and had an opportunity to straighten out their affairs here preparatory for a long ab sence There are only about 200 of the naval brlgado left In Boston now. and thev begin their annual two-weeks' tour of duty on the Minnesota on Monday, for which they draw State nay.
