Consolidation of companies.

--The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald says:

‘ It is the intention of Gen. McClellan to consolidate the different companies of each regiment of the regular army.

The exigencies of the service hitherto have made it necessary to scatter this force, so that there is hardly anywhere a whole regiment of the old army together. To effect this consolidation, a number of companies of infantry are to be sent to Pickens, where the rest of their regiments are stationed, and other companies are to be brought from Fort Pickens here to fill up the regiments to which they belong. Thus, in a little while, each of the regiments will be all together, for the first time since the Mexican war, and in some instances for the first time since they were organized.
