The camp-tire at Camp Clark, so fondly anticipated by the old soldiers, wasgreatly disturbed by the rain last evening. Ample provisions had been made for an out-door meeting, but a heavy rain came up just when the meeting should have begun, and so it became necessary to go totheuiiin hall, or the headquarters of the Forty -fourth. It was half past ctight when tlie meeting was called tj order by Comrade Cllne, In the absence of Captain Ab Mat tox, who was to have led the caiuji-hre, but who was unavoidable alisent. Comrade Cllne, after a few timely re marks, introduced Mayor O S Kelly, who extended the freedom and hospitality of the c.ty, giving the old boys a cordial welcome. He spoke nt the several organizations that had gone out from thlscity and county, and and especially ot the Fort) fourth, which, just twenty-six ) ears ago this month, was camped upon the same grounds now occu pied b) Camp Clark, and left for the froot 1,000 strong. He said the citizens were proud of them, as well as of all other companies or detachments, who left our count) for the war, as all did their dut) nobly. The rt-spouse was made by Col. I,. W. Tulleys, of Iowa, colonel of the Forty fourth, who read refulls-prepared ad dress, containing m ,'ixsl points, but he unfortunately wound up by givlugaset prohibition speech, to which the boys strongly objected. So great was this feel ing that at last the) forced the Colonel by their disapproval to suliside, one old vet calling out, "No iolltics at a camp tire." What he said was well enough hail it been in its proper place, but as one comrade re marked he was just one we'ek teo late, that he "should have been at the late prohibi tion camp meeting"' The Big Six then plived a lively selec tion, after which Cagt Win. Wade, of the Thirty-first Ohio, now of Missouri, was introduced as master or ceremonies, tor the rest of the evening He responed in a few brief words, telling humorously about his connection with the war, and of his grett monest). which had a!wa)s prevented him from doing an) thing eminent, either as a soldier or a citizen Captain Wade repre sented Missouri In congress most bril liantly. He then called for the next speaker on tlie programme. Fletcher White, esj , was to have spoken at this polnL but was not present, and Col. J. T. Mitchell. Slxty-lxth O V.

In marching past other and perhaps newer troops, when askeet "vv hat regiment?" would perhaps answer "First Babvlon" or "Tenth Jerusalem, and always had an answer suitable for tlie occasion. Col.

Yankee Doodle was then rattled off b) the band. Major Peters, of tlie Seventy-fourth Ohio, spoke upon "The loy all citizens who su, talned us at home, while we fought in the front" His remarks were good and to the point. Captain Conners next spoke of 'The bummers In the army," in a wav that brought rounds of applause He said it was the duty of the bummers, among other things, to deploy out over the country and search for chicken roosts ami anything good to eat as some one suggested, not even fc rgetting applejack.

Captain Wade opened the meeting for vol unteer talks by the hoys. He sat down, but was called up to make one himself. He responded, and In strong terms made a tell ing speech against the great crime of our country, in allowing over s.uoo of the old war veterans to be inmates of the different county poor houses and pauper homes ot our country "What a burning shame for our great land of liberty and freedom to thus treat the warworn veterans who savesl thecountry only tube thus inhumanly treabsl in return "" Kev Mr. Wilkinson was also e ailed out and made a short and witty talk.
