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
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 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
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
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

THB MINNESOTA COMPANY THE FIRST ONE PUT THROUGH
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

Just completed the inspection of seven companies.
The Grand Rapids Guards did not appear for In

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

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
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,

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

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

and doubtless got a bad mark for it.

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

their comrades with great interest. As t he Soutli

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.

In St. John's church to-day, at noon, to witness
the nuptials of Mr. John carter, of Baltimore,

waistcoats, striped trousers, and a white rose and
valley lilies in their lapels.
The company was In and seated when the bride
arrived. She was escorted to the alt a. by her
brother, Mr. Fellowes Morgan. The bridal dress
was a trained robe of white satin, cut v-shaped in
the back of neck and slightly rounded in front. A
lovely necklace of clusters of Dearls were about
her neck. The veil was of old "point lace, caught
on the top of the head in a round cap, and falling
to the edge of the train in exquisite profusion.
The front of the dress was garnish*^ with a gar
land of orange blossoms, and the boquet was val
