--We notice with pleasure that our esteemed townsman, Mr. Chas. M. Wallace
, is engaged, with Lieuts. Nicholas
, 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.
