When the drums of the First Regiment announced the approach of that fine body of soldiers, there was a general commotion on the grounds. The regiment entered the Broad street gate, was met by a squadron of cavalry, and marched to the place of parade. We observed the following companies: Howitzer Co. H. Capt. Randolph; Grays, Co. A, Lieut. Bossieux; Co. B. Lieut. Mitchell; Co. F. Capt. Cary; Montgomery Guard, Co. C. Capt. Dooley; Blues, Lieut. Scott; Co. I. Captain Morris; Co. G, Capt. Gordon; Co. E. Rifles, Capt. Miller. The Public Guard, Lieut. Gay commanding, was also in the line, We can say unhesitatingly, that while we have seen the regiment parade in greater force, we never saw it look better than on this occasion. The men marched well, and exhibited in their general movements a proficiency showing their careful attention to the instructions of the drill-room. We he

Richmond publications. --Messrs. West & Johnston published on Saturday the new work on Military Tactics, by Captain R. Milton Cary, of Company F; also, a pretty volume for young people, entitled "Brown and Arthur," written by Mrs. Anna Mead Chalmers, of Halifax county, Va. They also published last week another volume of Matthew's Digest, making three publications in one week by this firm. We believe this is a display of enterprise not heretofore reached by Richmond publishers, but we hope to chronicle many future evidences of go-aheadativeness in various quarters.
