COL. WALLACE'S REGIMENT.

The headquarters of this regiment are at the Government buildings, in Chestnut street below Fifth. Col. Wallace has selected Camp Edwards, on Islington lane, opposite the Odd Fellows Cemetery, where the men are sent as soon as mustered in. The grounds are beautifully situated, and well adapted for drill. The staff of this regiment is not yet complete. The colonel, Ed. E Wallace, and lieut. colonel, Geo. W. Todd, are both old and experienced military officers, having served with distinction in the Mexican war, and also were away in the three months service. The regiment is rapidly filling up, and will be among the number to leave first for the seat of war.
