The Bangor Whig says that during a drill of Capt. Burton's six-footers, at Oldtown, a few days ago, while marching upon a platform toward the river, where the platform ended, no order to halt being given, they kept on until ten had jumped into the river, and commenced swimming. Had not the order b)en given, tile whole company would have followed them, and probably kept on swimming to this day.----Boston Transcript, May 23.
