private and sent him back to his regiment, a free man. The President of the United States could not suffer it that one of his boys should be shot to death for being overcome by sleep.

Noble conduct of citizens of Richmond. The following is an extract of a letter from a member of the "Garde de Lafayette," dated Norfolk, Va., July 10, which we find published in the Mobile (Ala.) Tribune. We are glad to find that the efforts of our citizens to contribute to the comfort of our brave volunteers from our sister States, meets with so much approval: "I dined with the sheriff of Richmond last Monday. His name is Henry K. Ellyson.--What is worthy of all praise by our people is, that he takes our sick to his own dwelling, and gives them every attention. His kind lady does everything in her power to promote the comfort of the sick soldier. The rooms that our sick occupy are furnished with elegance. He has had seven at one time to attend to in his house, and kind Dr. Albert Shead is giving his own services free."
his is a rich crimson sash worn around the waist, which, with the scarlet fez with blue tassel, or the parti-coloured silk turban, presents to the eye a pleasing effect. The Berdan sharp-shooters wear a curious dark green sack — scarcely a sack — in fact, more like a cavalry jacket, trimmed with a light-green cord, wide blue bag-trowsers, and russet leggins.--They wear a cap of the old French infantry pattern, surmounted with a hen's feather of dark green. The 55th New York regiment, (Garde Lafayette,) the members of whom are all Frenchmen, wear the uniform of the French infantry of the line — blue frock coat trimmed with scarlet, scarlet pants, and the French full dress infantry cap, with the double scarlet pomnon. They have recently adopted a gray uniform overcoat, trimmed with scarlet cord, which gives them a gay and imposing appearance. The D'Epeneuil Zouaves, a magnificent body of men, dress in the picturesque uniform of the Turcos, while the 88th New York (Irish brigade) wea<
