full front of between forty and fifty men, especially in double-quick time; and this was performed very handsomely by all the companies in the regiment.

After the review, the commissioned officers and the color-bearer and guard were ordered to the front and centre, and the regimental colors were brought forward. Hon. Edward Everett then stepped forward and addressed Col. Webster, in a very feliciious manner, concluding with the following words :

“And now, sir, on behalf of the friends of the regiment, on behalf of this favoring and sympathetic multitude, I bid you, with your officers and men, God-speed! The best wishes of those whom you leave behind will bear you company. The memories of Lexington, and Concord, and Bunker Hill, will hover round your march. The example of the Massachusetts troops who have preceded you will kindle your emula. tion. "Let the fair banner which I now confide to you be seen in the front of the battle. When it returns, in God's good time, with the regiment, it may come back torn and faded, but it will not, it shall not, return disgraced. Dusi and blood may stain it; the iron hail of battle may mar its beautiful blazonry; it may hang in honorable latters from its staff, but loyalty and patriotism shall cling to the last shred, -treachery shall blast it NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!"

Col. Websier, on receiving the standard, made a speech in reply, which elicited much applause. The color.guard advancing, he i ommitted the standard to their charge, and then, turning to his regiment, proposed three cheers to the friends of the Twelfth, which the gallant soldiers gave in true military style.

The standard is very beautiful, being made of a rich white silk, having a heavy gold band, and edged with blue. On one side the shield of the Union and the coat of arms of the State rest upon one another, to represent the mutual support each derives from the other. In a scroll is the Websterian moito - "Not a stripe erased or polluted, not a single star obscured." The motto - E Pluribus Unum - connects the insignia of the State and Union. The palm-leaf of victory, and the oak of sturdy strength, complete this side of the banner. On the opposite side is the simple inscription

“ The Webster Regiment, April 21, 1861." A halo of light, above the inscription, is set off by a war-cloud at the bottom. An oak and laurel wreath runs nearly round the painting, connecting the first and last words of the motto. The staff is of lance-wood, and the handle is elegantly wrought, with the letter W carved in it. At the top of the staff a gilt eagle prrches. Lower down depends a magnificent fold of satin, bordered with gold, and having an elegant fringe of the same material; this adds an element of gorgeousness to the banner. The painting was by Savory the well-known artist.

After the presentation exercises, the regiment proceeded to partake of an excellent collation, which had been spread under the trees on Beacon Sireet mall. About six o'clock the line was re-formed, and a dress parade was gone through with, after which the regiment starred to return to Fort Warren, under escort of the Second Battalion. In State Street it halted for a short time, and when it resumed its march the band struck up a lively air, and the men took the route step, carrying their arms at will and singing, after the manner of the French soldiers. The Twelfth embarked for the fort, about eight o'clock, and the battalion returned to their armors.

No accident occurred in connection with this visit. The embarkation was conducted with the greatest skill and dispatch, and such was the discipline in the regiment that no soldier was left behind. Whatever may have been the opinion of the public in respect to the regiment, certainiy, from this time, all acknowledged that no other regiment exceeded it in discipline and drill, and in the quality of the material of which it was composed.

On the afternoon of the 23d of July, 1861, the Webster Regiment left Fort Warren for the seat of war. The demonstrations of respect and affection which the regiment received on its passage through the city were of the most enthusiastic character. All along the route, long before ine appearance of the volunteers, the streets, sidewalks, doors, and windows were crowded with persons anxious to give a parting cheer, or a hearty “God bless you," to the men who were on their way to the natinpal capital.

The regiment came from Fort Warren and landed at Commercial Wharf, about halfpast six o'clock, P. M. The men wore their white havelocks, which, contrasted with their tanned faces and dark blue coats, gave them a very peculiar appearance. Their knapsacks and gray blankets were packed tidily, and strapped on their backs. They were armed with the Enfield rifles.' The Second Battalion of Infantry, Major Newton, accompanied by Gilmore's Band, received them at the wharf, and, after the usual military slutes, they marched through Commercial and up State Street, where an immense crowd had been waiting for several hours. The greatest enthusiasm prevailed, and the police found considerable difficulty in clearing the streets sufficiently to allow the soldiers to pass four abreast. From State Street they marched in double-quick time through Court, Tremont, Boylston, Washington, Beach, and South Streets to the Old Colony Depot. The train was in waiting, and the regiment, after taking leave of the escort, embarked as speedily as possible.

The doors and windows of the station-house were besieged by the crowd of friends, and notwithstanding the vigilance of the police, the place was soon filled. The disaster which occurred to the Union army on the previous Sunday was in the recollections of many wives, mothers, and sisters, and made the parting scenes very sad. Soon after eight o'clock, the signal was given, and the long train of twenty one pissen. ger cars moved slowly out of the city, drawn by two powerful engines. The baggage train, consisting of eight cars, followed, with the camp equipage, borses, baggage wagons, ammunition, &c. The men were supplied with ten rounds of ammunition each, and fifty thousand rounds besides went in the baggage train.

The departure of the Twelfth will long be remembered in the community which witnessed its birth, growth, and education. The relation which the regiment maintains to the city, and the reputation which it had achieved, secured to these troops an ovation second to that of none who have gone before them. Previous to leaving the fortress the regiment was reviewed by Brig.-General Andrews, the commander of the garrison, and then the Fourteenth Regiment, Col. Greene, escorted it to the landing. Passing the school ship Massachusetts, a salute was fired, the boys manned the yards and cheered the soldiers, and as the boats arrived at Commercial' Wharf, salutes were fired from the Pembroke and Cambridge.

The march of this regiment through the city was a grand ovation. State Street was packed with people, who cheered vociferously as the regiment passed up: At other points the people congregated in masses, and shouted God speed to ihe departing soldiers. The entire route swarmed with spectators, who, from window and balcony, dvorway and sidewalk, waved adieus to the brave men.

The regiment was provided with twenty baggage wagons, five ambulances, two hospi. tal wagons, one powder wagon, and ninety-six horses. The latter had been picketed on the old batile-ground of Lexington about a weck, and had been trained by the teainsters. Not a nan was sick or left behind; and all were in a condition to meet the enemy, at a moment's warning. So eager were the brave soldiers of this regiment to serve their country in this dreadful emergency, that they actually signed three sets of papers,

Throughout the whole route to Fall River the approach of the train bearing this noted regiment to its destination was greeted with the greatest applause. All along the way, during the night, crowds of enthusiastic persons were in waiting, enlivening the scene with fireworks, bonfires, and other illuzninations, and hailing the approach of the train, which bore the regiment, with cheer upon cheer.

On arriving in New York City, at about one o'clock, in the steamer Bay State, and landing at the foot of Eleventh Street, East River, the regiment marched to fourteenth Street, where the soldiers formed into line and listened to an address of welcome from the Rev. Dr. Adams, which was r plied to by Col. Webster. A large number of the sons of Massachusetts residing in New York, and an immense number of excur. sionists, from the New England States, then in the city, accompanied by the famous New York Seventh Regiment Band, had previously proceeded to Fourteenth Street, at twelve o'clock, to act as an escort, and were in waiting. The regiment then, preceded by the escort, marched through Fourteenth Street to Broadway, and down Broadway to the Park Barracks, where it was provided with dinner, which had been amply arranged by Mr. Frank E. Howe, military agent for Massachusetts. On their way, che soluiers, who took the route step, amused themselves by singing camp songs. The dense throng of spectators, which was stationed all along the route, cheered the troops most enthusiastically. The officers of the regiment partook of a generous repast at the Astor House, by invitation the “sons," and speeches of a patriotic character were made by Col. Webster, Rev. Dr. Adams, Frank E, Howe, Capt. Shurtleff, and Capt. Hichborn. At seven o'clock, the regiment left the Park Barracks and proceeded to Pier No. 2, where the soldiers embarked in the Kill Von Kull for Elizabeth port, New Jersey, to take the cars for Washington, via Harrisburg, followed by prolonged cheers of old men and young stalwart youths and blushing girls, until the last bayonet of the last man disappeared on board the boat, and the boat itself was beyond the reach of voices.

On arriving at Lebanon in Pennsylvania, the regiment met with the greatest kind. ness; persons of every class, sex, and age striving, without recompense, to do most for the Massachusetts boys. With a few stoppages, the regiment arrived in Baltimore about noon on Friday, where an unexpected reception awaited them: for the people there vied with each other in their hospitalities. "At midnight, Col. Webster and his command proceeded to Harper's Ferry, where they arrived in the forenoon of Saturday, July 27th, and pitched tents on the Maryland side of the Potomac, about a mile from the Ferry, calling their encampment Camp Banks. After tarrying here awhile, the regiment, which had been placed in Abercrombie's Brigade, in the division commanded by Gen. Banks, proceeded to Hyattstown, Maryland, thence in a fortnight to Darnes. town, where it remained until it removed to Cantonment Hicks, about four miles to the east of Frederick City, in Maryland, arriving there on Thursday the 5th of December, 1861. At this place the regiment remained in camp until the 27th of February, 1862, when it marched into Virginia for more active service.

Too much gratitude cannot be given to Messrs. Dehon, Eaton, Butler, Hallett, and Bradford of the general committee, who assumed the whole pecuniary responsibility attending the raising of the regiment; to these is truly owing ihe admirable condition in which the regiment left the Old Bay State.

Although the Webster Regiment has not been, as yrt, engaged in any battle with the rebels, it has, nevertheless, performed valuable service for the country by guarding the Upper Potomac, and assisting in preventing the enemy from crossing the river into Maryland, which would be attended with the most serious consequences. The suppression of rebellion in western Maryland has been effected by ihe position of the division of the army under Major General Banks, of which the command under Col. Webster forms a part. When inis regiment is called into a more aggressive duty, it will, undoubtedly, like the others from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, achieve for itself a reputation inferior to none of the others.
