New volunteer Companies. --Two new volunteer companies have been formed recently on the western suburbs of the city. One of the companies (the Oregon Hill and Sidney Home Guard,) numbers seventy-five active members. Charles Y. Morriss, Esq., is Captain, and Edward McConnell — a graduate of the Lexington Military Institute--is 1st Sergeant. It has adopted grey jackets and caps as part of its uniform. The other company, which is equally strong in numbers, has not yet been named. Its commander is Lawson H. Dance, Esq., formerly, we believe, commandant of the Henrico Dragoons. John Crosby is 1st Sergeant. No uniform has been yet adopted by the company, so far as we have heard. The officers of both have been commissioned. The people residing in the western portion of the city propose to raise a battalion of uniformed men, and they certainly can do it if they set to work under the leadership of capable officers.
Organized. --The Richmond Zouaves, who number about 70 men, are partly uniformed and thoroughly organized under the following officers: Captain, Edw. McConnell; 1st Lieutenant, Edw. M. Alfriend; 2d Lieutenant, N. Dixon Walker; 3d Lieutenant, Robert McConnell. The company will be mustered into service on Friday.
False Pretences. --A man named F. Thomas was yesterday cited before the Mayor at the instance of Capt. Edward McConnell, of the Richmond Zouaves, who charges Thomas with fraudulently obtaining from him the sum of $5, one roll of ducking, and one gross of buckles. It appears that Thomas undertook to make a lot of leggings for the Zouaves for 75 cents per pair, and received on the contract the money and articles above named. When the leggings or gaiters were called for, Thomas alleged that he charged $1.50 per pair, and refused to deliver the balance of stuff unmanufactured or the articles already completed.--Hence the complaint, which, prior to Captain McC.'s arrival, had been heard and dismissed. It was, however, at his request, re-opened, and then continued.
