The Second Goldstream Guards have been cautioned at Wellington Barracks. Being ordered out for kit inspection the body of men refused to parade, and locked themselves in their rooms. The staff was sent for, and the inspection abandoned. The men then paraded, hissing and hooting Col. Maitland. The War Office is discussing the matter, and the regiment will probably be ordered on foreign service. The men complain of being harassed by useless drills and needless inspections.
