From the Richmond Dispatch, 10/25/1861, p. 2, c. 2

Fire Brigade. The semi-annual parade of the firemen took place yesterday afternoon, under the command of Principal Engineer Barnes. The engines, including the steam machine, were tried on the South side of the Basin, and the squirting was very powerful. A good many people were present to witness the ancient ceremony.
