The old Dominion rifles of Alexandria.

A correspondent calls our attention to the meritorious service of this gallant company, attached, as Company H, to the 17th regiment Virginia volunteers. The corps went into service on the 17th of April, 1861, and on the expiration of its term, in May, will reenlist for the war as a rocket battery. This course was decided upon several months ago, before any bounty was offered for re-enlistment.

The officers of the company are: Arthur Herbert, Captain; Senior First Lieutenant' W. H. Fowle, Jr.; Junior First Lieutenant, Douglas Forrest; Second Lieutenant, William Zimmerman; Orderly Sergeant, Arthur C. Kell.
