At one time during the reading a murmur passed through the line of the mutineers, and when that portion of the order directing to surrender its colors was read, a private in one of the rear companies cried out in broad Scotch tones.--"Let's keep the colors, boys !" No response was made by the remainder of the regiment. Major Sykes at once rode up the line to where the voice was heard. It would have been more than that soldiers' life was worth had he been discovered at the moment, in pistol range, by any of the officers.

One cause of the difficulty seems to have been that the men did not wish to join the brigade of Gen. Sickles, to which they had been assigned, while it is also stated that they claimed the right to go at the expiration of three months service, which was denied them. The regiment was drawn up into line to hear the orders of Gen. McClellan, namely, that the ringleaders of the mutiny were to be placed in arrest, and the regiment was to be ordered to fall in by company and march to the quarters assigned them in Virginia, and if they refused to obey this order they were to be fired upon.
