An adjournment took place to the Columbian, where they found an abundance of good things to eat and drink. After the close of this entertainment, the company escorted Capt.

Bound for the West. --The Richmond L. L Blues were mustered into service yesterday by the Inspector General. During the day, this old and favorite company had an accession of some half-dozen new members. They came from Aquia Creek a few days ago with 95 men, rank and file. We understand that they start this morning for Lewisburg, thence to the Northwestern portion of the State. Wherever they may go we are sure that they will give a good account of themselves. Lieut. Wm. L. Maule, who has been serving with the company since the inception of hostilities, was yesterday promoted to the Adjutancy of the First Tennessee Regiment, now stationed at Aquia Creak. First Lieutenant James A. Scott resigned on account of domestic affliction; and an election being hold, Fred. Carter was elected First Lieutenant, Charies P. Bigger, Second, Richard S. Sanxay, Third, and Ezekiel J. Levy, First Sergeant.

rmur. Though his noble spirit took its flight when yet away from home and kindred, yet it is a consolation to us to know that he died amongst friends, where all that the hands of kindness could offer was freely rendered to alleviate his sufferings; and as a small token of our feeling of this sad occurrence, we unanimously concur in the following resolutions, viz: Resolved, That in the death of our beloved fellow soldier, Dr. Thos. F. J. Williams, we have lost a firm friend and companion and our country a brave defender. Resolved, That we hereby tender our heartfelt sympathies to his deeply bereaved family, and mingle our grief with them in the loss we all sustain. Resolved, That the foregoing preamble and resolutions be entered upon our company records, and a copy sent to the family of the deceased and one forwarded to the Richmond Dispatch, with the request to assign them a place in its columns.

t regiment, Wise Legion. --Nine companies of this regiment, under command of Col. John H. Richardson, arrived here at an early hour yesterday morning, by the Danville Railroad, from Western Virginia. They were escorted into the city by the Armory Band, and marched directly to their camp, near the reservoir. The first company of this regiment, the L. I. Blues, of Richmond, received a cordial welcome from the many personal friends of the members. They came in under the command of Lieut. Fred. Carter, their captain having been in Richmond for some weeks past attending to duties of an official character. We understand that the company will be entertained in the good old fashioned style (Blue Bowl included) on Christmas day, by the honorary members and others. After an arduous campaign in the mountains, such a reproduction of the jovial events of peaceful days will be doubly agreeable to the soldiers, and we wish them a merry time of it. The Wise Legion, we are informed, is under
e Light Infantry Blues made suitable preparations yesterday to carry their wishes into effect. The invitation having been extended to the company at their camp, near the reservoir, they marched into the city in the morning, with the Armory Band, passed through Capitol Square, saluted the Washington Monument, and paid their respects to the Governor; after which they received the honorary members and proceeded with them to the hall on 13th street, where the entertainment awaited them. Lieut. Fred. Carter, who was in command of the company, having arranged his men around the well-spread tables, ordered a charge upon the "enemy" in the corner, which happened to be capacious bowls of egg-nogg and apple toddy, and we need not say that the order was executed in a spirited fashion. This over, the company was cordially welcomed to the festive board by Col. G. W. Munford, the oldest ex-Captain present, in a speech replete with retrospective allusions and patriotic sentiment. This was follow
e them. The Light Infantry Blues, (Company "A," of the Legion,) date their organization as far back as the year 1793, and number among their honorary members many of our oldest and most venerated citizens. The history of the company is so well known that we need not repeat it here--Capt. O. Jennings Wise was elected commander a short time before the war broke out, and the corps was one of the first to respond to the call of the country. Captain Wise is reported badly wounded, and Lieutenants Fred. Carter and Charles P. Bigger, are taken prisoners, with, it is presumed, a majority of the men. The Jackson Guard, and the Light Guard, both attached to the Legion, were enlisted here after the commencement of the war; Capt. Hiram B, Dickinson of the former, and Capt. Gus. Wallace, of the latter, reported captured by the enemy, are well known citizens of Richmond. Lieut. Miller, of the Jackson Guard, is said to be mortally wounded. Major Hugh W. Fry, who is among the prisoners, has many
isoners. They fought until their ammunition gave out, and before surrendering broke their guns in pieces — This course was also adopted by the McCulloch Rangers, none of whom are reported killed, though some are wounded. Lieut Bigger, of the Blues, is a prisoner, and unhurt. With twenty-two others, he got into a small boat with a view to escape, but the enemy brought a gun to bear upon them, and ordered them back, and they were forced to return. There are conflicting reports about Lieut. Fred. Carter, though Metzler thinks he is not wounded. It is stated that Frank Johnston, of the Blues, received a flesh wound, but bravely fought on until he was taken prisoner. The Light Guard and Jackson Guard, of this city, lost very few in killed or wounded. It is believed that neither Capt. Wallace nor Capt. Dickinson is wounded, though both are prisoners with their companies. One of the Blues had his gun shot from his hand. He coolly picked it up, and finding the barrel slightly

Sanxay, of the Hines, who accompanied the remains of the officers to this city, a list of the killed and wounded in the Richmond and two or three other companies, received by the flag of Our entire loss in killed was eight and in wounded thirty. This is the statement of Dr. Cole, and it may be relied upon as correct. Richmond Blues. Killed--Capt. O. Jennings Wise, private Wm. H Bennett. Wounded--Lieut. Fred. Carter, (shoulder,) Sergeant Geo.
