Holmrs, reparatory to their going iorirard to the front ru meet the enemy. VVe have ssarcely ever seen so fine a body of meo, taking them altogether, tnd their trofioiency io drill coonot be ezoelled; rc fleeting great credit upon their Commander and ■•thers who have bee*i over them. The review 1 eing over, the whole line was drawn op in olof^e order and wa^ addressed by Gen ‘Ilolmes. He tuld them that he eame to an- noooce to them that they wore needed in tbe field, •od must prepare to go at once. That he had juat returned from Richmond where he had en dearored to makearrani^ements for theic to go io a bodV, under the lead of their beloved Com mander, Col. Mailctt, under whom they had long .«erved; but that such ao arrangement was not oumpatible with the regulations of the service— new organizod troops not being admissible. They must, therefore, select the Companies to (Chich they wished to be attached and go to join them in meeting the enemy, who were about reaiy for the onslaught. Q!*h. ilolmes complimented the Battalion as being the best drilled one he had seen any where ard especially oomplimeuted them for the exalt ed reputation they bore for correct discipline asd ^igh moral virtue. It was a highlj iatoresting oecasioof and when fhe troops returned to their quirters, they made the echoes ring with buzzibs at the prospcot of meeting the enemy. CjI. Mallett seemed much 'movt‘4 at this parting review of his troops whose wcllaro'he has been ever assiduous to promote; iffliile the men seemed to hav» bat one regret and that was the parting with their loved com enemy’s iufantry and artillery all crossed at the i '^“V'TT—*: ^ lower fords last night, and spread this morning | them into a WMked hat.' ” from Obaooellorsville up to Parker's Store, a point I. ^ uMbt hut thu force, so roizghh about 20 mihi^s below her«.
