Wilmington Light Artillery.

 

††††††††††† This Company, originally organized under Captain Hedrick as a light artillery corps, has been serving during the last twelve months, or nearly so, as heavy artillery, but has now re-entered for the war, and will go immediately into the branch of service for which, as its name indicates, it was first intended.The men are now practicing the light artillery drill, having received their battery, and as they are thoroughly disciplined in infantry and heavy artillery movements, they will very soon acquire a very serviceable proficiency in the manual and maneuvers of light artillery.Captain Hedrick having been promoted to the rank of Major of artillery in the Confederate service, Lieut. J. D. Cumming has been chosen Captain of the company.All who know Mr. Cumming will be satisfied that the Company has selected a good and efficient man to command it.And by the way, there is no better company anywhere than that which Captain Cumming commands.About twenty additional recruits will be taken to fill up its ranks to the desired number, and among them a good blacksmith and a good saddler.óJournal.
