I THE 24th AT LLANDILO. The portion of the gallant 24th at present en route through South Wales had on Wednesday the pleasantest march they have yet bad or can have before they reach their destination, having traversed the intervening 12 miles between Llandovery and Llandilo over an almost level road and through the most charming part of the Towy Valley. A drizzling rain fell in the morning, but it did not last long enough to become inconvenient. On reaching Tanyrallt, the residence of Mr Vincent Peel, they were provided with a lunch by that gentleman, This was exactly midway between LUndovery and Llandilo, By 8 o'clock, signs of the approaching post were observable at Llandile, a party of the Cyclists' Corps reaching the town at that hour. A few hours later the pioneers arrived, then came the baggage waggons. The main body wer emet shortly after 11 o'clock just outside the confines of the town by the Volunteer Band, which played them into the town. Passing the Intermediate School they were lustily cheered by the boys who were assembled outside. Entering the town the regimental fife band played and then again the Volunteer Band. As the field on which they were to encamp Adjoined Llandilo Bridge Station it was necessary they should march through the main street, which was gay with bunting, as were other parts of the town. The field had been kindly placed at 11Ihe disposal of bbe regimenb by Mr Hopkins, Cawdwr Arms. In heu of a dinner the ^townspeople presented each man with 6d. The oamping ground was reached by 12 o'clock. It was visited in the course of the afternoon and evening by hundreds, the surrounding mining districts sending in a large number of visitors. Looking down upon the camp from the town the scene was most animated. At intervals after four .o'clock the bands played. In the evening the officers were entertained to dinner at Bryneithin I 'by Mr Lewis Bishop, agent to Lord Dynevor.
