Eleventh Regiment N. C. Volunteers.

--This Regiment lately arrived here, but is not at present in Richmond. Old Mexican Volunteers, who have inspected this command, speak of it as formed of the best material.--The men composing it were armed and equipped ‘"according to law"’--that is, in the best possible manner.

The rear train of the two conveying the regiment ran into the forward train Tuesday night, at Beaver Dam Depot, wounding four persons. The dispatch received from Mr. Fontaine, President of the Central road, at two P. M. yesterday, states that three of them — John C. Royal, D. A. Vestal and John B. Howell — are only bruised. They are walking about, and may be able to travel on the cars to-day. The only other who was hurt (W. D. Harrison) is suffering from a strain of his back, but is improving. They are all of the 11th N. C. Regiment, (Capt. Connelly's company.) They shall be well cared for, and if not detained to wait for Harrison, the others will be fit for service in a few days. It is not thought that Harrison's case is at all dangerous.
