Boston, April 25.--Touching incidents of the times are hourly becoming history. Humorous ones occasionally find a niche in which they are seen, and afford amusement, but none that are “decidedly good” should be overlooked. One good one that has reached our ears, we will give. One of the Justices of the Police Court, who has seen much service in our Volunteer Militia, was holding court a few days since, when a company of volunteers passed the Court House, marching to the immortal tune of the “Star-spangled Banner.” The spectators sprang to their feet, responsive to the understood order of “Forward, to the door!” Running feet shuffled in the entry. Boom! boom! sounded the band. “0, long may it wave!” screamed a patriotic urchin outside the window. “First Regiment, take the witness stand!” thundered the Court, which must have imagined itself on the green field at the head of its command. The outburst of laughter — unconsciously provoked — which succeeded, is yet going through the bar of the county.--Boston Traveller, April 25.
