COL. WALLACE'S REGIMENT.--We are informed that Col. Ed. E. Wallace has now about six hundred men in camp, and that the prospects of his having a full muster roll are very good. His camp is one of the most eligible situated in the vicinity of the city. His men are steady, respectable, and intelligent, and the officers he has chosen are such as a brave man may follow into battle with respect and confidence. The headquarters are in a portion of the Government buildings, Chestnut street, below Fifth--the same apartments that were formerly occupied by Col. Chantry's regiment--but which were thoroughly cleaned by Col. Wallace before taking possession of them. This regiment will be among the first now forming in this city to leave for the seat of war.
