The Honourable Artillery Company is to hold a ten-days' encampment at Welbeck, the seat of the Duke of Portland, colonel of the regiment. On Tuesday the company arrived at Worksop Station in three special trains, and proceeded in marching order to Welbeck. They muster 40 artillery, 50 cavalry, and 129 infantry—making a total, including staff and band, of 274; and this, it is expected, will be increased to 350 on Saturday. The company has four 9-pounder guns.
