The Floyd Brigade,

This admirable body of soldiers, enlisted and equipped in an almost incredibly short space of time by Brigadier General Floyd, has been organized, and will be ready to march to a few days. The companies in camp near Wytheville, are undergoing a persevering drill, and are fast acquiring the discipline and pore of soldiers. The men are remarkable for their stalwart, hardy and enduring frames. They are fired with the true spirit of freemen, and would prefer death to defeat and submission to the degraded and ruthless tyranny at Washington. They will be led at an early day to a point of activity and danger, and we are one will under their skillful and brave officers, achieve deeds of heroism that will supply some bright pages to the history of the present glorious struggle. As many of our readers in the South-west are personally interested in the organization of this fine brigade, we give below a list of it companies and officers:
