There are 1,046 men in the regiment, all told, but those that did not go wait to be equipped, and will probably be sent off on Saturday. The officers all equipped themselves at their own individual expense.

Company K is the artillery corps, and its captain (Wutschell) has had considerable experience in the Austrian army. Col. Blenker has had a thorough military education, and has served in Greece, seeing there a great deal of active service, He also fought with distinction throughout the German Revolution of 1848. Lieutenant-Colonel Stahel is a Hungarian, and was in the Austrian army, which he left to fight the battles of his native land under Kossuth and Gorgey. He bears the scars of many a hard-contested field upon his person. Several of the captains and subalterns have likewise borne the brunt of actual war, and many of the men are European veterans.--N. Y. Tribune.
