The Volunteer Review came off as usual on Easter Monday.

Brighton was again selected, the review was attended by the Prince and Princess of Wales, and the number of citizen soldiers on the ground exceeded 20,000. The most noteworthy feature of the affair was the rapidity and ease with which the railways per- formed their part of the work, without disturbance to ordinary traffic. An Irishman in the London Irish was arrested for carry- ing ball cartridge, with which he threatened to shoot the Prince of Wales,—but as on inquiry he turned out to be very drunk and perfectly loyal, he was let go again. The thing most wanted now in this movement is a volunteer commissariat. Suppose the regiments next Easter Monday undertake to feed themselves on the ground.
