The Light Infantry Blues.

--In our notice of this gallant old company yesterday, we stated that Captain C. P. Bigger was in command at the time of the surrender. This was a mistake. Captain Bigger was succeeded by Captain E. J. Levy, who was retired on account of impaired health, and he was succeeded by Captain George Jarvis, who was sick in Richmond when the Confederacy and all things pertaining thereunto "went up." Lieutenant McDowell was actually in command of the Blues at the time of the surrender.
