ent. --A Columbus correspondent of the New Orleans Crescent relates the following incident: We had a scene on the parade-ground the other evening, during battalion drill. The regiment was standing at open order and ordered arms, when Col. Marks gave the order stack arms. Your military readers will a once see what a blunder this was, and how impossible it was to execute such an order according to modern tactics. It threw the line into confusion; some companies stood fast without obey teaching him how to execute the movement, indignantly ordered him to marvel his company off the ground, and report him self under arrest. The remaining companies then finished the bungles of stacking arms from an open order. Subsequently Col.

Marks ordered the Continentals to appear before him at his tent which they did, under command of Lieut Babin. The Colonel informed the company that he did not order them off the parade fore him to punish them; he merely wished to let them understand distinctly that in battalion drill he alone was their commander, and that when he gave the order, right of wrong, it must be obeyed, if possible.

The Lieutenant then offered him his sword; this the Colonel also refused, saying he had just as good a sword of his own. Soon afterward the Colonel sent an order to Captain Fleming to return to his duty. And so the matter, as far as I know, has "simmered down." High
manner, shouldered arms without order; the rear rank marched forward without order, and then the stacks were made without order. Among the companies that didn't obey the order was the Continental Guards. Seeing this, the Colonel shouted to Capt. Fleming, wanting to known why his company didn't stack arms. The Captain repeated that he didn't know how to execute the order. The Colonel said he would teach him how. The Captain replied than that was just what he wanted.
