Richmond Light Infantry Blues.

--We have been informed that one of the members of this favorite old company, who was taken prisoner in the engagement on Roanoke Island, arrived in Richmond yesterday evening and stated that the remainder of the company would arrive to-day, having been liberated on parole by the Hessians. This is good news — though when they come all will miss the accustomed presence of the gallant Wise, their leader, who now sleeps the sleep of death. We beg to remind those who design joining volunteer companies now being formed in this city that Lieut. Sanxay, of the Blues, is now engaged in filling up the ranks of a second company, who will have the honored name of the old corps.
