--We notice the arrival in our city of a very effective and handsomely equipped regiment, composed chiefly of Louisiana
Creoles, and commanded by experienced officers, who have been educated in the military schools of France
This is the 13th Regiment of Louisiana
, commanded by Col. Mandeville Marigny
, who was educated at the Polytechnics school
; was the military companion and associate of the late Duke
, and is a Creole gentleman renowned for his chivalry and soldierly qualities.
, Jules Denis
, is also a splendid officer, and the Major
, served with distinction in the Crimean war. This regiment has marching orders for Manassas
, and will, we doubt not, sustain in the coming conflicts the high repute of the Louisiana Creoles
for gallantry and patriotism.
E. La Sere
, formerly a distinguished member of Congress from Louisiana
, is Quartermaster
of this regiment.
We learn also that another fine regiment, 900 strong, from Louisiana
, will arrive probably to-day, under the command of Col. Sulakowsky
, a distinguished Polish officer.
