CAMP SHIFTED TO SOCKBURN.

[ ' CHRISTCHURCH, Sept. 7 I Tremendous activity was apparent at the Addington Camp from an early hour this morning, as to-day the whole force—"Horse foot, and guns"—is quitting the Show Grounds, where it has lived for three and a half weeks, and trekking to the new camp at Sookburn on the trotting track. The reason for a shift of camp was not solely because of. the outbreak of minor ailments of an infeotious character, though it is true that the medical officials recommended a move, but also to give the men Rome practical experience in doing what they will doubtless have to do on many an occasion. Nevertheless it is felt tbat a move will be beneficial to the health of the men, who have been quite long enough in one spot. The ohief officers of the Force seem to consider that the cloße proximity of the Addington Camp to the city, and the continual influx of the public visiting the men is not an unmixed blessing, and it is thought extremely probable that the scarhv tina whioh broke out was either brought in by some outsider, or one of the men contracted it in town, and so carried the infection to his comrades.
