From the Richmond Dispatch, 2/14/1862, p. 3, c. 2


The 40th Virginia Regiment, commanded by Col. John M. Brockenbrough, stationed on the Northern Neck, have re-enlisted for the war.
In the 57th Va. regiment, Col. Armistead, now stationed at Howard's Grove, near this city, a considerable number have re-enlisted for the war, and it is presumed that nearly all will do so. The men are devotedly attached to their Colonel, and anxious to be led to battle by this brave and accomplished officer. It will gratify the friends of the regiment to learn that its sanitary condition is rapidly improving, and that the sick list is now quite small.
