A splendid Legion from North Carolina.

The people of the Old North State are moving to raise a monster Legion for the war, in addition to the 30,000 choice North Carolina troops already in the field. The Legion is to number 5,000 men, in the following proportion: 30 companies of infantry; 10 companies of riflemen; 10 companies of cavalry, and 2 companies of artillery — the companies to consist of not less than 75 men, rank and file. No company will be received for a less time than the war. The field officers, commissioned and non-commissioned staff will be appointed by President Davis; also the captains of artillery. They will be men of the highest standing in the military line.
