Maj. Seymour Howell, of the First regiment, arrived in the city Wednesday evening, from Adrián, for the purpose of witnessing the movements of Co. A, it being his custom to make a tour among the various companies of the regiment, just previous to going into camp. He arrived by bicycle express, just as the sun was reddening behind the tree tops, and was perspiring at every pore. He was wrung out and dried off by porter Wilson of the Cook, after getting a change of raiment and his supper, looked quite the efficiënt and popular officer he is. Later the company came out, and after the movements, Maj. Howell gave the company a talk concerning the new plan on which guard duty will be performed at the encamp" ment, under the regimental guard system. Concerning Major Howell, the same is he who after a fine boom that promised to sweep all before it, had gone forth in his favor, for state treasurer on the republican ticket, withdrew his name, claiming that the Pingree people were getting him into a false position. Had he allowed himself to be nominated hï would have developed a doublé quick gait as a runner.
