Arrival of more Mississippi troops.

--Five more companies from Mississippi--the ‘"O'Connor Rilles,"’ ‘"Coonawa Rifles,"’ ‘"Calhoun Rifles,"’ ‘"Iuka Rifles,"’ and the ‘"Pontotoc Minute Men,"’--about five hundred strong — arrived in this city yesterday, and, together with the companies which arrived Wednesday, composed the Second Regiment of Mississippi. They are under command of Col. Faulkner, all of them well armed, and are composed of the same kind of brave men who did such terrible execution at Buena Vista, and by whom the fate of that battle was decided.-- Lynchburg Republican, 10th.
