Zzzan old Howitzer.

A picturesque figure in the line was Nicholas M. Crouch, the author of ‘Kathleen Mavourneen.’ Though eighty-six years old, he marched each time the visitors were on the street. He wore a Confederate gray coat and wide-brim slouch hat, and was heartily applauded along the line of march.

Professor Crouch is an old Howitzer, and when he walked into Mr. J. B. Lambert's store, which was headquarters for the veteran Howitzers and Louisianians, accompanied by Mr. James T. Gray, he was accorded a touching reception.

Captain F. M. Colston, of the banking firm of Wilson, Colston & Co., Baltimore, while at Maryland headquarters yesterday, fell down a short stairway and bruised his limbs so that he could not join in the parade.
