Washington Shooters.

The city of Washington sent down two companies, and they were assigned the positions just in front of the Virginia infantry. The Rifles, commanded by Captain W. E. Beagle, have 40 men, and the Sharp-Shooters, whose sack coats, cartridge-belts, and unique uniforms attracted universal attention, had about 25, and were under Captain E. G. Benson.

The Lynchburg Zouaves came in with the Washington boys and also claimed very general notice. The Zouaves are a well-drilled lot.
