The Infantry Competitive Drills. THE TROOPS FORMED IN BATTALIONS. Orders In*ued by Gen. Augur?Slcetcbee of Camp Life?The Firwt Drew Pa rade?Note* from Ibe Camp, Jtc. Camp George Washington was wide awake early this morning, and the routine prescribed in yes terday's orders from reveille to taps begun in a merry way. The sun was bright and the day in every way delightful. Matters were reduced to a system at headquarters. Gen. Augur's soldierly Instincts led him to prefer a tent to the portable house constructed for him, so he spent the day in a tent beside the headquarters building. The camp and its surroundings presented an interest ing sight. All around the camp pacing up and down were sentries, and no one could enter the camp except through the regularly ordained entrances. Fourteenth street along the whole front of the Monument grounds, and for some dlstanc ? north, was lined with venders of peanuts, canes and ginger cakes, establishments Tor testing one's weight or strength, or how much electricity one could take and still live, and all the institutions that usually congregate at country fairs. The en terprising proprietors of these establishments could not cross the lines, but did a trood business and carried on a ceaseless chaffing. Early In the morning preparations were made by the different companies that were to drill to-day, and during the morning they marched out, one by one, to the drill ground THE DEADLY CADET. The very young ladles who visit the camp find no spot more attractive than the quarters of the Cadet regiment. There are no more natty-looking soldiers In camt) than these young Cadets, Their uniforms are cut so as to show off their figures and wasp-like waists to good advantage, and most of the lads are handsome fellows. Some of them, too, are cultivating mustaches. Their close atten tion to military duties has not made them yet In different to feminine smiles. TO-MORROW'9 REVIEW. To-morrow win be one of the special days of the week. It will be the day of the grand parade, when the President, with the governors of States who have been invited to be present, will review the troops from the stand erected In front of the White House. This afternoon orders will be issued forming the organizations in camp In Imtf allows In which form they will parade to-morrow. The command will move at 12 o'clock from the camp, proceeding by way of 17th street to Pennsylvania avenue, along Pennsylvania avenue to 4v street, up 4# street to D, along D street to 9th, nence to F, to 15th, and back to the camp. In passing the President In review they will pass from west to east in true military style, with guides on the right. This will be the only opportunity that will be given, probably,when all the troops can be seen marching In a body. At the dress parades during the week the different bodies will appear In suc cession. This evening there will be five battalions on dress parade: the 1st, Louisville Legion; the 2d, Ohio; the 4tb, consisting of the companies from Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama; the 6th battalion, comprising the Michigan, Minne sota. and North Carolina companies, and the 8th, composed of the Cadet9 of the Military Academies. One night towardthe end of the week will be given to the Virginia troops. The organizations will be formed for review to morrow In battalions substantially as directed In the order Issued to-day respecting the dress pa rade. THE HOSPITAL. The surgeons on duty at the Red Cross hospital to-day were Drs. F. Fernald, J. B. Hood, Lachlan Tyler, and J. W. Bayne. Miss Barton said this morning that they had treated about thirty pa tients with various complaints. The hospital, she said, was equipped and managed just as It would be in the field. The nurses and surgeons wear the Head Cross on their arms. Miss Barton wears be sides decorations she has received from the Queen of Servla, the Duchess of Baden, and other royal personages. The hospital headquarters are located in a portable house like that in which Gen. Augur and his staff have their headquarters. This is surrounded by hospital tents, eighteen In number. The hospital Is strictly and rigidly military. Miss Barton's face was bright with pleasure when she looked It over with the Star reporter. "There could not be a better hospital made," she said, and she has had long experience In military hospitals. Everything about the place looked fresh and clean. Miss Barton told a star reporter that this was the first time surgeons had ever been decorated with the badge of the Ked Cross In America. TUe nurses on duty to-day were Miss Margaret Vandersall, chief nurse; Misses Maggie Garges, Louisa Beverldge, E. M. Snowden. and Annie Piatt, and Mesdames L. s. Bertton, Dr. Ripley, K. B. Shelden, S. J. McLeod, Alice Fries, Laura Medfeldt, and Margaret Elchenlaub. Mr. Thos. G. Foster was ward master for the day. the first drkss parade took place In the National Drill ground last night, the Louisville Legion, a battalion of the 2d Ohio and the Washington Light Infantry, appearing on the ground. The parade was witnessed by two or three thousand people in the grand stand. The Marine Band furnished the music. The three bat talions, all well drilled, made a splendid exhibi tion. The Washington Light Infantry were eagerly applauded by the spectators. When the dress pa rade was over a number of drill squads took the field, and began practicing for the competitive drills. , the pyrorama. Six or seven thousand people visited the drill grounds last night to see the first exhibition of the pyrorama, or the fiery spectacle of the battle between the Monitor and Merrlmac in Hampton Roads. The exhibition, which is on a large scale, with large sized vessels moving about, is quite realistic and fuU of life, light and fire. First is shown the destruction of vessels of the Federal fleet by the Merrlmac. some of the vessels are burned during the engagement. The second part begins with the appearance of the Monitor, and the light, between the two strange looking iron clads. This was a very spirited engagement, but resulted last night in a termination quite differ ent from what was intended. Instead of giving victory to the Monitor, as was on the bills, chance gave It to the Merrlmac. The rockets, candles, and other explosives in the turret of the Monitor took Ore and went off in a terrible explosion, play lng-sad havoc with the Monitor. The small boy who managed the guns of the Monitor escaped through a port hole and the vessel was placed Aor* au combat. The boy stood on the burning dock long enough, however, to be quite badly sooiched. The Merrlmac, however, la a spirit of ? - o* ?- *, imk accommodation carried out the program and tvT*16 exh,bltl0Q was cut some )v~;at **y Ws. unexpected occurrence on J? j; f1 the cl09e * set Piece in the ? a Patrlotlc combination of S^MufiuSiSS!74*** "" "* 0B THB TROOPS FORMED tJ.

Tbe Competitive l?rill?. THB MINNESOTA COMPANY THE FIRST ONE PUT THROUGH THE MANUAL. It was only a few minutes after 10 o'clock this morning when Co. A, 1st Minnesota Regiment, 26 men, Capt. Jno. L. Amory, commanding, filed into the drill grounds through the southern gate, ready to commence the drill test. CoL Black, Capt. Has kelL and Lieut. Smith, of the board of Judges, had Just completed the inspection of seven companies. The Grand Rapids Guards did not appear for In spection owing to the sickness of two men. As Co. A, 1st Minnesota, formed In readiness to be put through the drllL Capt. Amory drew forth the printed slip on which were the maneuvers through which his men would have to go. The Judges? Capt. Woodruff, Lieut. Evans, and Lieut. Clark stood by with note-books in hand, ready to record the relative accuracy with which the company obeyed orders. OUTSIDE SPECTATORS. Guns were first stacked, and the men were put through a series of movements with little fingers touching the trousers stripes. This was what a Star reporter learned had been done after he had waited for 15 minutes for the company to appear before the grand stand where their movements could be seen. The few hundred spectators also waited on the grand stand. Thev could see a body of men in blue uniforms down below the pyrorama apparatus going through some military move ments, but they had no idea that the drill had com menced. The troops in going through the re quired drill were compelled to march over consid erable ground, and then it was that they found their way to within a 100 yards of the grand stand, and it could be seen that they were drilling. They staid In that vicinity but a few minutes, and then made their way back to a point below the pyroram.i light-house. The Star reporter, with the others, then realized that the competitive drill was really taking place. SPECTATORS WHO WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE. Quietly creeping under the railing separating the drill ground from the grand stand the Star man slipped over to the pyrorama light-house. He took a seat in the shade of tbe surrounding can vas rocks and took a good look at the soldiers. A hundred or more of the persons who had paid to see the drill swarmed Into the same vicinity, but a squad of policemen soon made their appearance and cleared the field. No member of the drill committee was on hand to give tbe spectators a chance by seeing to It that the arrangements were ' changed. The governor of Minnesota was seated In the grand stand and saw as best he could the crack company of his State go through the drllL After being put through a series of movements , without their guns they resumed their pieces, and i then foUowed MANEUVER AFTER MANEUVER that tested the military efficiency of the troops from Minnesota. They wheeled this way and way at the word of command; divided into fours and twos, changed their guns to every position known to the manuaL Tbe three Judges, with their note-books in hand, skipped hither and yon. Sometimes one came near getting caught in the closing ranks; but they were old hands at drills, and invariably got out of the way without causing a break in the line. The most interesting move ment was firing kneeling. As the troops knelt on tbe green sward as one man they presented a very pretty long-distance view, a squad of carpenters were at work on a large platform in front of the grand stand. ASTONISHED CARPENTERS. As a volley from twenty-six rifles rang out on the clear air as from one piece, half as many car penters stopped their hammers In mld-alr, with an accuracy equal to that of tne troops. They had been oblivious of the presence of soldiers, but as the smoke cleared away they saw what It was, and calmly resumed their work. The Minnesota men were attired in plain blue I uniforms and black helmets with gold spikes. Their general appearance was creditable, but their drilling was not of a character to entitle them to the first prize. This was their first competitive drllL and they were naturally somewhat nervous. When the half hour fixed for the dim had expired time was called, and Co. A, First Minnesota, marchetftiack to Camp George Washington. Be fore they had completed the drill theElghth Sep arate Company of Rochester marched into the grounds, only to march out again, for they were not to see what their competitors were doing. When the Minnesota troops had disappeared, THB ROCHESTER OOMPANT made its appearance. The men wore uniforms very similar to those of the Minnesota troops, ex cept that their helmet front* were covered with gilt trimmings. They, too, hugged the pyrorama works and didn't come near the grand-stand ex cept when they were compelled to. There were occa sional breaks In their ranks also, which will doubt less prevent their carrying away a price. A few minutes before they had completed the diUlttie Southern gate opened and THB MUSCATINE RIFLES. of Iowa, the company that drew No. 3, filed In. They presented a very fine appearance in their ahowy uniforms. As soon as they were Inside the grounds their backs were turned at the word of command that they might not see the my-hetter ?ten at work. The latter were soon through and the field was clear for the Muscatines, They evi dently were proud of their proficiency, or else the committee had received word of the unsatisfactory condition of affairs, for the newly-arrived troops Immediately inarched up in front at tbe grand sund and ^stacked their arms. The spectators, who had hugely Increased in numbers, at oooe be came Interested, and gave their undlved attention to the drllL The company that was entirely hrao rant of what was expected of it made a vet7 pretty sight. The dark blue uniforms of the men were well set off by the broad white cross belts and gold epaulettes. The white helmets, with Ion* white norse-Lall plumes gleamed lu the bright sun light. They might well wme up in front of the grand stand, for they proved t hemselres a well drilled company, going through the required drill in a very creditable manner, their only apparent defect being a slight inaccuracy In wheeling. As they executed the required inanouvrea with accu racy the spectators applauded them generously. or*. ACOfR TO THE RESTCE. After the first two companies had drilled General Ordway, at camp, received word from a member of ttt committee that the companies were drilling where they could not be seen well, and he imme. dlately Issued an order directing that those to follow should execute their movement* nearer the grand stand, greatly to the satisfaction of every m GRAND RAPIDS GrARDS had drawn number four, but they withdrew from competition on account of the sickness of two men. Their place was taken by the next organi zation which had drawn number five. This was COMPANY a, FIRST BATTALION, VIRGINIA TROOPS. Their uniform was the regular miutia uulform of the state; dark blue trousers, gray coats, white trimmings, black belts, black helmets, with golden eagle on the front. It Is safe to say that company A did not take the fli>t prize. They would nave done better if they had known before nand what was going to take place, so that they could have practiced some. The captain had several bad marks recorded against him, while Ids men were not up to the scratch. Some of their movements were executed very creditably, but they illd not always keep step, and some 01 the wheels had the appearance of a dog's hind leg. Firing to gether was not a success. THE STATE GUARD. VA., (COI.ORKDV, next came up on the double-quick. They belonged to the regular State mllltla, and their uniform was the same as that of the preceding company. Their movements also were not characterized by that accuracy which will entitle them to a prize, ibe captain, unfortunately, dropped his sword once, and doubtless got a bad mark for it. THK TTCESBrRG So IT H RUNS, the next company to drill, were escorted to the grounds by their red-coated band. Four men acted as color guard and held the company flag at a distance when the drilling commenced. The band ceased playing as soon as they entered t he grounds, ana stationed themselves near the pyro rama light-house and watched the movements of their comrades with great interest. As t he Soutli mns marched toward t he urrand st and ttiey received rounds of cheers and applause. They marched as one man, and their general ap|KM.r.ince was tine. Their uniform was very effective?dark-blue trou sers, with wide white stripe; tlght-fltting blue coats, with white stripes across the che>t? and tails trimmed with white, and pure white sh;ikos, wit h gold tassels on t he front. They went to work in a deliberate bu&lness-dke m inner, and succeeded In making a very favorable Impression. Most of their movements were made with perfect precision, but occasionally then- was an ln<llvidual break that doubtless Injured their nvord some what. on one occasion a man dropp?d his bayo net, which was picked up by one of the judges, who immediately recorded the fact In his little note-book. The Southrons fired to perfection, the hammers of all tailing together. Their wb?rling was not as good as that of the Muscatlue& When they halted irom double quick, one man was unfortunate in dropping his musket. In firing from a kneeling position one man dropped his cartridge, on the whole their drilling, however, was very creditable, and they divided the honors of the day so far wit li the Muscatlnes. The Southrons were at a disad vantage In being required to drill on slippery grass to which they were not accustomed. It was supposed that the drills were all exactly the same, but the maneuvers did not seem exactly alike. At any rate the movements were not .<11 in the same order. This gave considerable variety to the drills, as tne spectators did not see the same thing over and over again. As the Southrons were about to leave the grounds COMPANY A, FIRST VIRGINIA REC.IMENT, filed Into the grounds. They wore white trousers with the gray coats and gold trimmed helmets of the regular Virginia mllltla. SOCIETY ."NOTES. Leading society people of three cities were met In St. John's church to-day, at noon, to witness the nuptials of Mr. John carter, of Baltimore, and Miss Alice Morjran, daughter of Mrs. D. P.
