CO. D, 3d REGIMENT GEORGIA INFANTRY.

We are indebted to Commodore G. N. Dexter for the complete list of members of the Madison Home Guards, which is the most correct list we have seen, and will no doubt be perused with great interest by the surviving heroes of that grand company, and by our readers generally.

Total enrolled from April 26, 1861 to April 9, 1865, 142 members. Compiled from muster rolls and morning reports. From "The Advertiser, " Madison, Ga. July 31, 1887. Published by E. A. Rice.

Last Tuesday we were shown the tattered and torn remnant af the old battle flag of the Third Georgia Regiment by Commodore Dexter. It was the only battle flag under which the regiment fought and has a notable history.

Beginning its career on the 29th af April 1861, it passed through all of the prominent battles of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania. At the closing scenes at Appomattox, when Colonel Claiborne Sneed, the gallant commander of the regiment, saw that the cause was lost, he tore the old flag from the staff, thrust it in his bosom and brought it safely back to Georgia, and it will occupy the most conspicuous part in the reunion at Eatonton next week. The surviving members of this brave old regiment will ever love and cherish this flag, torn and rent as it is by shot and shell. It is an emblem of their deeds and valor, and death alone can tear it from them. It was never disgraced or captured, and bloody shirt wavers of the North will never possess it to be held as a hostage in the vaults at Washington.

This Company on the night of the 19th of May (Sunday night at 12 o'clock, ) 1861 was called out "ta arms", and transported to Suffolk, Va., to prevent a landing of the enemy. The wharf and river was given in charge of this Corps, and picket guards were stationed down the river in signalling distance of each other, as far down, as 7 miles, by water. In the afternoon the pickets were called in and the troops returned by railroad to Camp at Portsmouth. Suffolk is upon the Nansemond River 20 miles from the Camp and in Nansemond County, Va.

This Company has been at its present station ever since it arrived here, a few days after it was mustered into the service of the Confederate States of America, except for twenty four hours on the twentieth of May when it was ordered up to Suffolk to meet an apprehended attack on that place. The condition of this Company as to clothing, uniforms etc., is good. It is deficient in arms and accoutrements. The discipline of the Company is good. The drill and maneuvering of the Company is very fine. With a few more muskets, cartridge boxes, cap pauches, knapsacks, it would be fully and finely equipped.
