n«rulent Battalion is In splendid trim.
It is Just finishing the last movements
of the battalion drill, and is in perfect
order. The regular drill yesterday was
indeed o fine one. every man knew or

The band, too, is getting on exceed
ingly well under Chief Musician Trow
bridge’s management, and he deserves
great credit for what he has done. One
week ago last Monday the band Instru

judging from the excellent music fur

had been practicing for months. Last
night Lieut.. Col. Thompson said Its
success was something beyond concep
tion. Tbe members of the band take
great Interest In It. About 10 o clock
last night, when I was at the camp they
were diligently practicing.
Off for Washington.
This morning Col. Jones and Lieut.
Col. Thompson leave for Washington
in the interest of the regiment.. They
will be joined by Senator MoLaurin at
Greensboro, N. C., and will go at once
to tbe war department.
The object of this mission is to ask
the government officials to grant per
mission to the Independent battalion
to proceed to Cemp Alger at once and
join Butler. The Second battalion,
vliicb is almost completed, will be re
tained here until it Is completed. When
this is done the Third battalion will be
