We understand that Colonel Maxcy Gregg
, commanding 1st South Carolina Regiment, stationed in General Huger
's department, has been promoted to the rank of a Brigadier General
, and ordered to report to General Robert E. Lee
, commanding Confederate forces in South Carolina
. General Gregg
proceeds at once to engage in the defence of his gallant State.
His promotion is a well- merited tribute to his military capacity and a just reward of his distinguished services to the country.
We predict for General Gregg
a brilliant career if the enemy shall afford him an opportunity.
