The Mutinous Guards.
[pee, pkbss association]
London, July 22. Large crowds assembled to witness the departure of the Grenadier Guards, who embarked for Bermudas at daybreak. The greatest enthusiasm was displayed, and ji large number of police were i-equired to keep the crowd m order. The men were cheerful, and were taken straight on board H.M.S. Tamar at Chatham. The popular impression is that the Guards have been harshly treated. The officers are out of touch with the men through nonresidence. Many members of the House of Commons are urging Mr Edward-.Stanhope, Secretary to the War Department, to reduce the sentences passed on those convicted of mutinous behaviour.
