MILITARY ITEMS Who ^tole the new bushel basket ? Company F have suppendol drills nn<l tfon.i into summer «iuartt rs until Se^'tem-l> er l8t. Elementary drills amonjr the commis-sioned otRcers of tlio Mii8!>acliu8etts militia are now in vojjue. " Br^'vet Major ' says they hroujrht b.tck an old basket instead of the new one, ' which is better than none at all. Th« First Ueffiment band are talkinjj of securing the rink for a series of jiopular Saturday nijtht concert;". We trust thev will. New Haven sent its crack military com-pnny hen*, and the llillyers convinced them that the ball field'was als<f a sarse field. Some very funny excuses were given in the New llaven iiajters. rejrarding the Sarsfiehls' defeat. They were indeeil laugh-able. Lieut, t'owles of (1 Co. was in town Tue-silay. He re]>orls matters quiet in I'ostalcardville, and that the sash and blind shoji is running full time. ShiMit the proposed ])ermanent camping (grounds, is now the cry of theC. X. (}. (live us a rifle range, and then the cry of the National Guard will be. Shoot the Fea- Ixxly, Co. E,C. N. O., 4tli Ueffiment of Bridge-jKirt, Cspt. Uoodwin, will liold n jiicnic at the Scheutzen Park, West Stratford, on the Fourth of July. Music by the Wheeler & Wilson full band. (Quartermaster (Jeneral (Ireon expresses himself HS being op|M<se(l to a state ciimp ground and rifle riiiige together. Kifle practice at encampments would not amount to much ; it proved ao at Ninntic last fall. The S« venth regiment memorial xtatuo was unv( ile<l in Central I'urb, N. Y., Mon-day last with appropriate ceremonies, in-cluding a parade of the regiment and Vete-ran Association, with music by (Irafula. Here is some of tho Xne Ilneen Union's sarousm ; " There seems to be a rumor around town that the Sarsfield Ounnl in-tend chiillenging all the com)uinies in the Tnited States to competitive drills, to take place some time in S-ptember." The riiion says " the military committee will recommend a place tor a rille range and permanent camping grounds." The range is well enough, but you cannot find the members of thi- National (luurd, either olHcers or men, in favor of the latter. We don't want it. The article in last week's Armi^ and A'u* fjf Jiiurmil, entitled " A Field Day in Con-necticut " must have been partly anticipa-te< l by its reiireseutative, as it contained several errors. Tho Sarslields won ut the coui|H-titive drill according to his account. He must have left tuwu uu the first train after the shower. The Niantic Brass Uiiml is rehearsing nightly, and (H-casionally |>erfiirius in front of the Howard House, so Hewitt of New Loudon writes to tho Nonckh Adirrtiier. That is just what the Imperials did last September, and perhaps the home baud learned a note or two from hearing the renowned " liiips " perform. Cheney's Band, Capt. Prutting, accom-panied the Washington commandery K. T. to Springfield Wednestlay, and furnished acceptable music. Colt's Band also t(n)k part in the parade, idaying for the Spring-field commanderv. Elser's City Band were hire*! by the Northampton commandery. Massachusetts pet>ple know where to find good bands. The petition of the Wilkius colored battalion, composed of the Twenty ninth I'nion (hianl, Hartfonl, Wooster (hiard. New Haven, and Welch (luard of Bridge |>ort, asking that they W Incorporate*! in the Ct. (J., has been declined by tlu' military committi-e, and the petitioners given leave to withdraw. No colored Na-tional (hiard at ]iresent. i'erhaps the mu-sic (':) of that colorifl drum at the last parade brought aljout the alwve decision. r h e Sarsfields were received •i>on their return to New Haven after tlie drill by the (irays and otiier companies, with a display of fireworks and were iieartily congratulat ed u|>on their success, 'i'he" Sarsfields ap-preciated their reception, but their coni-railes as soon as the Sarsfields toU! them of the decisiim diiln't enjoy touching ot!" fire-works and things " as much as formerly." It seems a represt-ntative of one of the New Haven pa|>ers telegraphini down that the Sarsfields had won long l>efore the judges reni!ere<i their decision, and this reception was prepanni for them. The Sarsfields rather appreciated tho joke, and their comrailes made tho l)est of it after having found out they were rejoicing all for naugiit. Among the. many funny scenes on the Park at the unveiling ceremonies of the Putnam statue during the heavy shower which suddenly came up, was one which we will describe as follows; A party of the New York Seventh l)oyB in full uni-form, who were present to witness the dis-play, when the shower came rus^hed and got under a liack carriage that stootl on the driveway. 'i'here were five or six, and they were congratulating themst-lves upon securing even such a protection. While the shower was at its iieight the driver started up his hori^es und drove away, leaving the representations of the N. O. S. N. Y, exposed to the rain, which caused the First regiment boys who were in line wet as drowned rats, and witnessing their situation, to laugli at their sudden damp condition. One of tlie Seventh boys was heard to en(iuiro if all the people in Con-necticut were as mean aa that driver. The First Regiment band, (Colt's) gave their first of a series of ]iicnics and summer night festivals at Boardman's (Jrove lust Monday aftern(Kin and evening. A con-cert by tho lull military bund was given, followed by a dance with music by the orchestra and' pMUipting by Church. large number visited the grove and listenw! to tho wmcert pn>grainme, while in the evening, until miilnight, the dancing board was crowded, and the promenades will patroni/.ed. .\tnong tl>e jiarty present we noticM'd a.large numt>er of otiicers aud members of the regiment. The music was fine, tho illuminations brilliant, and the " i t Citeni* " pleasant to look at, ('apt. " Tom" led the orchestra with his usual ability. " Teddy " was in his glory, and propelled the hair of horse o'er the liowels of cat In his usual artistic style, while the Secretary am! Treasurer manipulated tho keys of his cornet ^lracefully, and smiled at the proHpi'Cts of a full treasury <m the morrow. The band clear over |3tK), for the Ix-nefit of the uniforiu fund.
