The Howitzers, on Saturday, paraded at their quarters, Spotswood House, and marched through several of the streets, with a force of about 185 men, uniformed and otherwise. There is no doubt about the popularity of this arm of the service. The Artillery will soon have an equal number of good and true men on their lists. One of the Howitzers, loaded with ball, would do as much execution as eighty muskets in the hands of infantry.
