Iho MflRtilflccnt Knees At tlio Fair find the Excellent Showing . Made In All of tlio Other Departments. The Day at tlio Camp. Yesterday , at Camp John A. Logan was about as airrceablo as could have been de sired. A breeze from the southwest tempered tlio heat of the sun , and.as a consuquence.ov- erjbody was at liberty to take In all tlio eights and entertainments uf tlio well-trodden tented Held. . Tlio early trains broilht In hundreds of people nnil veterans from tlio Interior of tlio statntho mid-day and nftcinoon ones rolled In laden with people ) fioin tlio city , whoso employers had Klven them half a day otl to visit the cimp. During tlio day nuarly live luimlri'il ( farmers' wagons entorcd tlio cn- closure from all tlio surrounding counties , tirlngln ; : with them between two and three tlirco thousand visitors. Then , tlio overtime trains swelled tlio attendance by several thoiiMiiil more so that during tlio day not loss than 25,000 people wcro on the grounds. Tlio camp , everywhere resounded with mar tial music , tlio persistency with which It vv.n maintained arguing tlio devotion of tlio musicians as it did also tt < o great number of iniislc.il oriranl/.atlons on tlio ground. During thu day , the stand In front of tlio commandei's headiiuartes was frequently occupied by ambitious and pains-taking orators tors and musicians , who endeavored to entortaln the crowd which stood around not withstanding tlio tiimperaturc was such as to siu'cest a morn sheltered spot than that around tlio stiiuo upon which their ontertaln- eis were posted. Among tlio most prominent of the orators was tlio gcntlenunlio is known to fame as Loner , tlio lighting chain- plain. These exercises wcro prolonged In tlio early evening until tlio campground becamealmost Uescited by the hcAlraof visitors to "Pina fore. " which was suiiir to a largo house , and the running of the batteries of Vlcksburg , which uas witnessed bv at least 20,000. At the conclusion of the latter enzneemenl , the grounds lor tlio space of milo from below the "I'lnafoto" amphlthoatro to the north cud of tlio camp was covered bv a mass of human beings and pee ple-laden vehicles , such as Omaha never snw bofoio. The Duong , tlio driving hither and thither of mounted ladles and gentlemen , the arrival of carriages , coupes , landaus and Hansoms with occupants enner to see the sights , and the departure of others after hav ing had their curiosity satisfied , was well nigh beyond belief. .It was such ascenoas could ho witnessed only In a metropolis , and tlio effect of the same was rendered indo- pciibablo by the darkness In which the whole was enveloped , only tlio Impovoilshcd light of a few lumps and that from the stars being available to dimly outline the heterogeneous mass. IteKlmmtnl Hounlons. Tlieso are among the most Interesting features of a soldier's experience at the cajrirt. _ ThC7 "ouurallv take place on the fourth and fifth days of the onuainpmont nnd , when missed by a veteran , are ever afterwards a souico of regret. Each state lias Us own gathering. The survivors of the regiments meet at a common place , and form a hollow squire. In the middle stands the president of the re jlmental association , and If there bo a secretary ho also stands In the square. The numbers of the regiments arc then called consecutively. First , come the Infantry , then the cavalry ana finally the artillery. As the soldier's regiment Is num bered , the survivors walk to the middle o ( the enclosure and there grasp hands , shnkc and indulge a moment of reminiscence. 11 there be a doslro to prolong the meeting , the group retires to the side of tne gathoiing foi that purpose. Frequently it hnppuus , as may well be understood , that the survivors never met ono another while In the tield , or. If they did , the lapse of years , With the changes of form and feature has snlUced to blot out all recognition of the long absent face. As a con equeiice , when the veterans meet In the squnro , there Is a iicnetratlng glance , a smile , n Miako of the head , which shows that there Is nothing In common between the survivors except the memory of having once fought under a common loadrr from a beloved state and In the cause of the union. Sometimes these calls are responded to by no one , oven though , when made at the preceding reunion several persons may have rushed to the Iront , This evidence of "de.id , wounded 01 mlsslnit" Is explained In a few words , thai the soldiers \\lio responded last year have an swcrcd the loni : mil , to take part no morn In the battles of this life. It is on such occasions as these that the soMler.ls biought tacotofac ( with the Immutable fact that , with the average ago veteran , age , Inlumlty , death at best cai. bo hut a tew years behind while to many It Is already within the cjcle of a much shoitei period. Yesterday at one of thcsu reunions the number of ix certali regiment was cillcd. No survivor ro sponded. A comrade noting this , stepped It the mlddlo and said : "Comrades. At our reunion last year tin TliUteoiitli regiment was responded to hi Comrade. Atkins. Ho was then slxty-sl : years ot ngr.

Ycsteulay afternoon the Now England boys paid a visit of respect to Commander Russell , and atter that called upon Genuial Wlieaton. who was ono of the .second regi ment of RhoOo Island vnli'iiteorB. Battery Xhunilcra. Yesterday afternoon the artillery marched by way of thocoiumindoi's tent to the exer cise c rou net and wcro followed by at least 20,000 people. Colonel WoodiulT rode In the load and the men and horses seemed in the best of spirits , 'llio urand stand was packed with about 4,590 people while the other sides of the squat o almost as far as the eye could reach , were lined with thousands ot people. The battery wont through a number ot pretty movements with ease and precision , tiling in a half a dozen different styles into action front , and aligning with the perfection of front worthy of a well trained batalllon ot Infantry. They had hardly reached the ground , when , ono after another , the loud hearse volco of each of the four lams rang accompanied by a short propulsion of llirhl- brown smoke in which could be dis tinguished the flash of the powder. The sight was an unusual one and was found Intensely Interesting to the thous ands present. 'Ihls Interest was Increased when the guns were limbered and command was given , whereupon tlio whole battery started at a rapid gait , wheeled with the rapidity of running horses and , out of a ser ies of complicated movements , In which everybody and every horse seemed doomed to one llnnl and fatal collision , succeeded in co mini : to front as straight as it could hnv-rt iwou ! formed If the eltort liad consumed au hour. As the hocses and ordnarieJO swung and rattled over the Sward , the audience burst Into ono long stoun of applause. The front formed , the caissons were unllmbcred. the guns charged , and , as If but ono shot had been fired , the four guns at the same Instant belched a volume of smoke and lire , the re port of which shook the earth and dislodged a Hock of crows from a feast In a corn held beyond the ground. Several other move ments were made at the sound of the buck and the volco and sword of the Colonel , Woodruff , which were characterized wltli great precision and celerity. As the battery retired from the field they were liberally ap plauded. linnd nicotines. When the Bun reporter returned from the artillery practice , ho found his quarters occupied by a se.oro of war-worn veterans , each of whom was In possession of a musical Instrument of some kind or other. They proved to bo Iho National Drum Corps of the department of Nebraska , who had met tc form a Veteran Drum corps for the purpose of attending national encampments of tin G. A. It. The members present were : M. L , Pcmbleton was elected president ; 11. K. . litwler , vlco president. Grand Island ; (1. W. Miller , secretary. Cameron ; J. S. McGlasson , Cameron ; S. L. llawlov , Central City ; Oscar Hockfoid , Hastings ; A. W. Juttars , Aram- hoe ; D. A. Copson , Ounhn ; John llooy , Omaha ; Jonathan Nell , Wymoro ; Guor c Morrow , Pacfflc Junction , la. ; 11. D. Owen , Hastings : F. A. 1UII , Weeping Water ; It. Morrow , Hastings. A constitution and sel ot by-laws were adopted after which the meeting adjourned till this morning , whet : they will near a report from a committee appointed to ascertain the best means oi securing a representative ot the corps as t member of the state encampment of tin G. A , It. The Navnl Engagement. "Commodore" Hastings had no authority to announce the afternoon engagement yes turday between the Monltoi and Merrlmuc Ho made thu same without thn knowledge o the committee on management. Conno qucntly the engagement did not take place and for that reason there were several thous nnd of disappointed people. Hut hejiad all the authority In the worli forthorunirtngof the batteilcsof Vicksburi at night. Ills authority Is what Is known a : carteblanche. . Ho ex'crcjsed It by construe tiug four tun boats , three of which were a ! black as a sinful soul. A fourth would havi been us black as the other throe had then been suniclcnt tlmo to cover the skeletal frame with serge. Two of thu boats wen shaped like the traditional Merrlmac , a thin ono was fashioned after the Monlto of ulorlous memory. Those lay mooruc at the base of a high bank on the shore o Cut-Olf lake In proximity to tlie Pinafon amphltheatie. NUlit gradually settled upoi thu scone , and the giant sea monsters I in patiently worked at their moorings , as theli forms becimo indistinct In the starllcht am the breeze of the south tempted them lnt < the open surf.ice. Working nrouin them was Commodore IListin : ' of Aurora , W. II. Michellsof Grand Island and several other doughty seamen. Th commodore , Ilko almost e\ery man who ha sought distinction near the cannon's \eiit , I hard of hearing , though he makes an ctfor to hear e\erytlilni ; addressed to him , tliougl ho Is sometimes compelled to osuulisl connection between liis commodore's ca and his left auricular by means o Ins hand wheu encaged In con versatlou. Ho complacently per milled the HKK'S war corresnonden to occupy the flotilla on Its perilous run , am accorded thy jcribfl a position pn board | U flagship , the lienton.vlion thfl carrospon dent went on board 40,000 ojes gazed lonnin ly at the flotilla , the dcpatturo of which the awnlfui with Impatience. The turret of th Tuscnmbia required repairs , and when a length everything was In readiness , th boats were towed in the luk by "tho side-wheeler , Lady of th Lake , the Honton being firs the Carondalet second , tinder Mr. Michael : the General llragg third , under Lloutouaii Commander Mitchell , the General Krag under Lieutenant Commander E. McDuun They were Krceted with beautiful Uwwork from II. M. 8. Pinafore. They had hardly reached the middle ot the lake when they commenced to tire upon the works of Vlcksbur/ , The war correspondent of the HKI : was placed In charge of the magazine , which was filled with powder and fireworks. This ho watched with dill- eenco several times brushing off myriads of sparks which rained .In golden drops upon the canvns covering of the explosives , as the fireworks , bombs , big ctackers and candles were exploded. As a result he mourns a qulntctto of burned lingers. Meanwhile tlio mlnlaturo mortars of the boats barked at heights and with the concussion of every shot , out went the Illuminating medium and left all the deck In darkness. Suddenly ono of the gunners of the Benton exclaimed ; "That boat ( tlio Cnrondalot ) "Is on tlrj. " Sure enough , the iron cloth sides of the boat wcro In flames. Then came a "burst of thunder loud , " and the whole front nnd sldo of the monster burst Into flame. Then about n hundred rockets exploded at the same instant and at In- 'ervals , giant tire-crackers burst with deafen- ng detonation , while the Interior of the boat looked like a section of the Inferno. Forth rushed a human being lu flames from hand to foot. Ho was about to jump Into the lake , when one of the gunners on the Henton shouted. "Don't do that ; you'll get drowned. " Tlio poor follow was denuded of Ills burn- ng clothes and then hands hold him fioin a wateiy bath , while half a dozen reached buck ets Into tholake.and with water extinguished the flames. There was not enough money In the business for the HI'.K'S corre spondent to protect the magazine and at the sumo time tire olt uyroteunlcs calculated to send him to perdition. So ho quietly hailed ' : ho "Lady of the Lake'1 nnd scrambled over icr stern Into the sympathetic hands of some pleasure-seekers. Tne line connecting the steamer and the Benton. at request was cast oil'nnd all the boats floated toward the shore , whore they were mercilessly fired upon by the batteries on the heights. The Bragg was burned and presented n hand some spectacle. The Caiondalet and the Benson , although out of danger , kept up n wnim lire with the moitars upon the heights. The name of the young man who was burned In the explosion could not bo learned , because n small boat took him to shore before the reporter could reach him. To-day' * Sham Hattlc. This morning there will be a grand bat- talllon drill in trent of tlio grand stand , in which all the companies of the Twenty-first nfantry present will take part , The drill ivill bo accompanied by skirmish firing nnd the body will bo under the command ot Cap tain Boyle , whoso comm aid has been at four of these state reunions.

The vet erans will be under the command of Mnlor Claikson and the roulars under Major Butler , of the Second Infantry. The com manders of the opposing forces weio not an nounced up to this writing. Thron People Injured. Yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock the breast check of the team of carryall No. 193 broke as the vehicle was belli ; driven down the hill on Sixteenth stieet under the Mis sourl Pacific , on the way to the camp.
