From Mississippi.

Mississippi, which was entitled to second place, this having been the second State whose troops reached Virginia in 1861, was represented by the Columbia Riflemen, twenty-four strong, Captain A. J. McDonald, and the Brown Cadets, forty in number, Captain William P. Brown, commanding. They have a very pretty dress uniform of olive green with old-gold trimmings and white helmets. They constituuted one of the handsomest bodies in the line and marched well.
