‘"Tennessee all Right"’

--The First Regiment of Tennessee Volunteers arrived in Richmond, by the Danville cars, about 10 o'clock Sunday night, and marched from the depot immediately to their camp, which had been established southeast of Howard's Grave, near the ‘"Black Pond."’ The regiment, which numbers 1,000 men, are composed of citizens of Coffee, Grundy, Lincoln, and Franklin counties. They are all stout, able-bodied men, capable of doing their part of the work which has been carved out for them by Lincoln and his pestiferous adjuncts. The regiment embraces ten companies, making an aggregate of 1,000 men. The staff and company officers are as follow: Col., Turney; Lieut. Col., Holman; Major, W. D. Holeman; Adjutant, J. W. Custer; W. G. Brooks, Commissary; Capts. A. B. Patten, Ramsey, J. E. Bennett, Jos. Holden, Salmons, Clement Arledge, W. L. Simpson, Davis, Jacob Cruse, Miller Turney.

The Second Regiment of Volunteers were on their way, and expected at 10½ o'clock last night by the same road. They number 1,000 men.
