—Tho Hollefonte Fencibles (Co. Is,) were
treated to a very pleasant surpriso upon
their arrival hero from Camp, Vincent on
Tuesday evening. Captain Mullen, al
though forced to leave carnp on account of
bad health did not forget the boys, and
while the men were regretting his absence
from thel midst, he was planning a little
reception for them. When the train steam
ed into tho depot about o'clock, bearing
the sunburned veterans of his command,
Captain Mullen was on hand and after tho
usual greetings, escorted the boy* into tho
spacious dining room of the Hush House,
where mine host, Mr. Teller had spread a

so kind and capablo a commanding officer
as Amos Mullen.

After is pleasant und uneventful journey
from Bellofonte, we arrived at our destina
tion at 3 o'clock on last Wednesday and
went immediately to our quarter*. The
trip hero was not marked by that air of
boisterous hilarity which characterized tho
first cneampment of Company H. The
boy* felt, rather than know, tin; difference
in the circumstance*. Instead of looking
upon going into cnmp as a tort of picnic,
in which there wa* plenty of fun and no
work, they wero impressed by tho convic
tion thist they were in iculity soldiers and
a* such wero expected to comport them
selves in n soldierly manner. Tho ride
over tho Allegheny mountains wa* de
lightful, and many were tho exclamations
of wonder and admiration which burst
from the men a* point after point of tho
superb scenery which lines thi* portion
of tho l'ennsylvunia Kailroad came into
view. The fstnotis Horse Shoe Bend came
in for a great share of attention, while the
im|H>*ing handiwork of nature, as seen in
towering mountains and deep impenetra
ble valleys, combined with the triumph
of human genius which mastered every
difficulty and surmounted every obstacle
in tho building of this inagnillcient trunk
line, imbued oven tho most careless with a
feeling of awe. Hut even the grandeur of
mountain scenery and engineering skill
paled their ineffective light a* we rapidly
approached llio banks of the storied Kit
kiminita*. Kye* flashed with a new light;
expectancy irradiated every countenance ;
and why not ' Were we not soon t<> a<t
ualiy see that mighty river, upon whose
broad bosom were to float rich argosies
laden with the varied products of General
Harry White's native county, whose hur
rying water- were to hear the burden "f
a vast and increasing commerce through
the Allegheny and Ohio t" the Father of
Water*. Wa not this magic to l- accom
pli*h<ii by that Genii of the nineteenth
century—an appropriation —and had not
the member from Indiana made the first
step toward building up a great internal
trade here in these mountain fa-tnes-*
We soon ha 1 our curiosity gratified. We
came in sight of a dirty little stream a!, ul
the width of the Bald Eagle and our vis
ion of an inland sea vanished a- complete
ly a* General White's tpiixotic idea of
diedging tho sonorous Kiskiminita We
also had a splendid view of the new hotel
at Cresson Spring*. It i an imp-sing
structure, with towers an 1 gables, and
mut be capable of accommodating an
army of guests. I wa informed it ha*
leen filled to overflowing ever since it
opened. S>on we rush pa-t the pleasant
village Of >all*burg and in a moment the
groaning, creaking train *t ; j •• 1 and it*
load of blue coated, whit" gloved freight
wa* on tho platform. The regiment a
quickly formed and aftr a march of ai- ut
three hundred yards up a considerable
bill, wo came upon an extensive plateau on
which was built a city of pure white.
Thi* wa tho camping ground of the sec
ond brigade.
It was a beautiful sight. The K>th. l ß th,
15th and 14th regiment* were already in
camp. General lb-aver greeted u* as we
passes) his headquarter* which made us
sort of fee) at home. Our tents were all
up and ready for occupancy. Tho men im
mediately went to work to put their tem
porary residence* in order. I/>ads of
boards were ordered, floors laid In the
tents, and soon a general air of comfort
pervaded our company streets. The men
in tho other regiments had the front* of
their tents shaded by largo trees, cut in
the adjoining forest and plant's! so as to
afford them artificial protection from the
sun. The effect wa* quite striking and of
fective. Before wo could follow the ex
ample of our comrades, General Ib-aver
issued an order saying that thi* is a mili
tary ramp, and has it* proper military de.
ignation and ta to be conducted upon mili
tary principle# and that lurther ornamen
tation of company street* is to bo discontin
ued. That effectually stopped that branch
of business. Our officer# as usual were
indefatigable in their endeavors lomako us
comfortable. They were here, there and
everywhere looking to our want* and see
ing that we lacked nothing that would
conduce to our comfort. We are all feel
ing badly over ('apt. Mullen * continued
ill health. He overdid himself for the
first couple of days, and to the universal
regret of the company, was compelled to
return home on Saturday. Captain Mul
len has by his kindness to the men and his
courteous bearing to them on all occasion*
earned and deserve* the good will which
every man in the company bear* him.
However, he left ut in competent bands.
Lieutenants Potter and Hale have done
ail that car. bo desired. They are both de
servedly popular with the men.
Tho work in camp is systematic. There
I* no holiday soldiering here. The discip
line is rigid, and is enforced with strict
impartiality. There I* no centrist between
Camp Vincent and Camp Hayes. One
wa* the congregation, it is true, of almost
tho same material at that which compotm
thit camp ; but there wa* lacking among
the troops at Camp Hayes that which the
French call, lUpril <iu Chrpt. Tho men
did their duty in some cases, and in some
they did not. There was no fear of retri
bution ; therefore there was a lack of
whoteaome discipline. There I* none of it
wanting hero. Cnmp Vincent is conduct
<•<l * if an armed enemy was in it* front.
5 ou receive your order* and to receive it
to obey, and any failure to do *o i* follow
ed by unpleasant consequence*, a* many
hero can testify from personal experience.
The reorganization of the National (iuard
may not be complete, but it ha* lukon a
great atridu forward. It it not too much
to my, after teeing tho working* of the
new tytlem, that tho time I* not far .lis
tant wlicn Pennsylvania will have the beat
cltizen-toidiery in the world. Tho work
in camp i* unremitting. "From early
morn to dewy eve" the men are engaged
in tho ta*k of perfecting theinaelvet a*
aoldiera. They are routed from their
tin in ber* at live in the morning and can
not retire until after roll call at nine and
a-half at night. There it company, squad
and ballullioti drill, dro** parade and tar
get practice ; beside*, there is guard mount,
guard duty, fatigue duty and innumerable
other thing* that elfectually take up the
time. The Commissary i* everything that
can be desired, and we of Company li are
fortunate in having two excellent cooks.
There it one thing that hat attracted
almost universal attention, and that is the
general homlinett of the. ladies from the
surrounding country who have visited u
in great numbers. (It is proper to remark
here, that although we are technically sup
posed to be encamped at Sail-burg, iri In
diana county, wc are actually in Wet
moreland county—the Kiskiminitus being
the dividing line). Tliit ugliness, by the
way, is not confined to the ladies, the men
making a very fair record on the side of
decided uncoulhness. In talking over thi
matter with tiiat veteran journalist, J. H.
Sanson), of th>- Indiana he in
dignantly repudiated the insinuation ti.at
the ugly girls came from Indiana county.
He remarked, parenthetically, that they
came from Westmoreland, ami the uglj
men came from Indiana. He said, in con
elusion, that he was the only Democrat
from Indiana county on the ground. The
otii regiment wa* in-; <•< t-1 by Adjutant
General James \V. I.alta and the members
of General Heaver ■ staff on lat Friday
evening, at •' o'clock, and the inspectF-n
was eminently satisfa. lory t • the m-j • t
n.g offl. -r- ai d < orr -j ondingly gratify ,t,g
to the men.
Ily the way, C .mpany H has made great
improvement in drill under the (*;).
direction of us officers, and on two luc
re.mc evenings, at dre.-s parade, f e.v 1
quite aii ovation frotn the larg" crowd in
attendance. <ln the first eTening, while
tiling in review before Colonel Hurchfie.d
and the officers of the vari. is compani.
the Kencibb - came down in >u- b |<-rf<#t
order that they w.re loudly applauded, not
only by the spectator* but by the re
of the other companies. This w repeat
ed on lat evening and we feel quite proud.
Company B has in it the mat'rial to make
an exceedingly good military • rganir-ation
i ine of the great difficulties ex; erier. ■ 1 in
(.'amp is to ascertain which is the most
| imj-ortant individual—a general of divis
, '.on or a drum major. It i but just to say
that the burden of opinion is U|->n the side
of the magnificent individual who wields
| the hai ,n. However, this question bids
1 fair to l>e definitely settled by the non
roinmiMioncd officers. From present a; •
pearani e it will not be long before the
-ergeants and corporals vaill put th the
j starred general and the gorgeous drum
major completely in tho hack ground,
tine of tho dangers of the service is the
elevation of men to the minor positions
who do not know how to fill them. The
officers are kind and courteous in almost
every case, but complaints come from ail
quarters that the understrap|>ers abuse
their authority and are disp>os<*<l to "strut
their brief hour upon the stage" in alto
gether t<ai loud a manner. The review on
Saturday was a grand affair. A slight
shower about three o'clock cooled the air,
freshened tho gra-s, and made it an alto
gether irreproachable day for the brilliant
pageant. Gov. Hoyt was on the ground,
and with General* Hartranft, Heaver and
their staffs reviewed the troop*. Three
thousand gleaming bayonets and flashing
sabre* glistened in the tun light, while
frowning artillery fittingly brought to a
close the great event of the encampment.
Thousands upon thousands of people filled
the vast spare* and enthusiastically cheer
'■d tho perfect appearance and marching
of the "Hoy* in Blue.' 1 The weather ha*
lieen simply perfect. Tho sun is exceed
ingly hot at inidday, but there it always
a good, pure mountain breeze blowing,
while the evening* are comfortably cool.
Tho ramp ground it all that could be de.
tired. It comprise* four hundred acre* of
level land, with a fine surrounding of
forest and grove, On thia property are
located the famous Kiskiminita* Mineral
Spring*. A fine hotel, situated in the
midst of a beautiful park, i* a favorite re
tort for summer visitors, and it also a part
of thit estate. It it as yet uncertain when
Camp will break, possibly on next Wed
fleneral Beaver named our camp after
General Strong Vincent, of Erie, who was
killed at Gettysburg.
Andy Morrison went home on Saturday
on a recruiting expedition. We have not
heard yet whether it Is to be a son or
daughter of the regiment. Before leav
