L. I. Blues. --This glorious old company' commanded by Capt. O. J. Wise, has enlisted a large number of men, who are now under constant drill, and anxiously awaiting a call to perilous duty. Mr. Wm. L. Maule was elected senior 2d Lieutenant of the corps last Friday night. The Blues, who are the oldest company in the State, and can boast of historic renown, are not willing to live on the glories of the past. Their motto has ever been "upward and onward." Under the leadership of so chivalrous a gentleman as Jennings Wise has ever proved himself to be, they have become as an unit, and so act, and so will continue to act, whether as peaceful volunteers "placing soldier" or amid the din of the battle field and wars alarums. The Blues can be counted on as surely as the sun rises and sets. There is not a man, woman or child in Richmond that could not entrust his or her honor to their keeping, assured that it could be preserved to the death.
Expected arrival of South Carolina troops. --It was generally understood about the streets yesterday, that a reinforcement of troops from South Carolina, to the number of two thousand, would arrive in Richmond by the Southern train last evening. They did not arrive in the regular train, and had not arrived at 11 o'clock last night, at which hour we found a large number of baggage wagons congregated in the vicinity of the depot, in waiting. We believe that the Blues, under Capt. Wise, also repaired thither shortly after the hour named, hoping to greet their brothers in arms.
