strates lhat four-fifths of the disorders

The military parade which came off. on
Saturday last, . at Orangeville, was quite a
fine affair. There were representatives of
eight companies present, bul no one com
pany with its full compliment ol men ; ana
we believe but two companies muy organ
ized onder the laws of ibe Slate. . In the al-
ternooa H R. Kline, Brigade Inspector, took
ihe companies under, his command and
marched them into a field, where he dnlle-
i j i -1
ihem for an hour or iwo won a aoou ue. u.
satisfastion to boih the companies and spec
tators. After Ihe companies were marched
back to town, they were entertained a few
moments, with a neat little address, deliv
ered by Por, Shauk, of the Orangeville
Male and Female Academy.' His remarks
were on the war question and were well re
ceived, frequently bringing out shoats of
applause... Upon the whole, all passed off
smoothly. ' Il was a goa day in Orangeville.
