Patriotism in the South.

--A friend calls our attention to the formation of a company in New Orleans called the "Confederate Guards," composed of gentlemen of the highest standing in commercial circles there. The Captain is P. N. Wood, Esq., President of the Merchants' Bank. Among the privates are Rev. Dr. B. M. Palmer, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in that city, and several of the Elders of the Church.

In Georgia, two companies are forming, both commanded by clergymen--one a Methodist and the other a Baptist. Both Captains are said to be natural commanders.
