Target practice. --After the Tredegar battalion were dismissed from parade on the 4th instant, company D, commanded by Captain William E, Tanner, preceded by a band of music, marched down Main street, and thence to Voegler's Garden, where they partook of a dinner prepared for the occasion. After dinner, they engaged in a target practice, when, upon examination, it was found that private Joseph Melvin had made the best shot. He was then presented with a silver modal suitably inscribed. Late in the afternoon the company returned to the city much pleased with the exercises of the day. The men of the battalion make admirable material for soldiers.
