What Georgia has done and is doing.

--In summing up the outpouring of troops from the State of Georgia, and the spirit still pervading that State, to organize and send forth volunteers, the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle says:

‘ Beside the regiment of regulars, at Savannah, under command of Col. Charles J. Williams, Georgia has sent to the field ten regiments of volunteers under Cols. Ramsey, Semms, Wright, Doles, Jackson, Colquitt, Gartroll, Vrumby, Goulding, Anderson, three regiments independent volunteers (field officers appointed by the President) under Cols. Bartow, McLaws and Johnson of Kentucky, two battalions commanded by Majors Villipigue and Hardeman, besides two independent companies. There are also in Virginia Georgia companies enough to organize another regiment. So that we have now raised and sent off some 14,000 soldiers besides the regulars.--The Brigade of Gen. Phillips, encamped at Big Shanty, numbers near 2,500. The Toombs regiment--4th independent — is now organized under Col. Ector who fought in the Mexican war, and the 11th and 12th regiments will organize in Atlanta next week, under command, doubtless, of Hon. W. E. Stiles and Hon, Thomas W. Thomas. To these must soon be added Tom Cobb's Legion. Col. Cobb's independent regiment, Col. Hammond's, Col. McMillain's and Col. Underwood's, which will increase Georgia's fighting force, including the Regulars and Phillips' Brigade, to near twenty-five thousand effective troops, And this is only one-half or one-third or what Georgia can and will do, if necessary.
