Arrival of more troops.

--The Western trains yesterday brought in about eleven hundred troops from Mississippi--the whole composing the Eleventh Regiment of that State--under command of Col. Moore. The following companies compose the Regiment--Lamar Rifles, Capt. Green; University Grays, Capt. Lowrey; Van Dorn Reserves, Capt. Reynolds; Prairie Guards, Capt. Hairston; Prairie Rifles Capt. Williams; Coahoma Invincibles, Capt. Delany; Chickasaw Guards, Captain Tucker; Carroll Rifles, Capt. Williamson; Noxubee Rifles, Capt. Weir; Nishobee Riflemen, Capt. Franklin, and the Spartan Band, Capt. Mallard. They are all magnificent looking soldiers, and are well armed and equipped, several of the companies being armed with Colt's six-shooter Rifle and the Maynard Rifle. When passing through the streets they marched to the tune ‘"Carry me Down to Lynchburg Town,"’ and seemed to be highly elated that they had arrived on old Virginia's soil;--Lynchburg Repub., 11th.
