Richmond Light Guard.

--We notice with pleasure that our esteemed townsman, Mr. Chas. M. Wallace, is engaged, with Lieuts. Nicholas and Pearce, in reorganizing the old "Richmond Light Guard," which, it will be remembered, served throughout the campaign in the West with Gen. Wise, and was captured, together with Capt. G. A. Wallace and 2d Lieut. J. C. Little, on Roanoke Island, after one of the hardest fought battles of the war, taking into consideration the great odds arrived against our little force there. These officers, with their experience in the field and camp, are well qualified for their positions as company officers, and we are glad to learn that the friends of Charlie Wallace are now enrolling their names in this popular corps. One feature in this organization which we approve, is the fact that they will not take substitutes, thus making it a select volunteer company. Capt. G. A. Wallace will no doubt soon be exchanged, when they will gladly welcome their old Captain to his former position.
