The Jackson guards.

--The Pensacola (Fla.) Observer, of the 9th inst., in announcing the organization of a company of native Creoles, called ‘"Jackson Guards, "’ says:

‘ The Jackson Guards are composed of the native Creoles and adopted citizens of our city, principally Spanish and French. They are commanded by Capt. P. A. Caro, one of our oldest and most respected citizens, of Spanish descent, and the company displayed their good judgment in electing him as their commanding officer.

There are some features in the organization of this company that are somewhat peculiar and different from other military companies. The orders are all to be given in the Spanish language, and the company, besides being a military organization, is also a mutual benevolent society. They are to assist not only their own members, but all indigent foreigners who may chance to come this way, and who require assistance. This is a feature that will commend them to public favor.
