Billy Wilson's Zouaver.

--The Pensacola Observer has the following in regard to this exemplary regiment:

‘ It is said that not a single one of Wilson's Zouaves have now the clothes they came to Fort Pickens in, having stolen each others all around, and that old Harvey Brown has but one suit of clothes left, (the one he wears) and has to sleep under a body guard to save them, and further that Wilson had to put his commission in the powder magazine to keep them from stealing it.
