6TH REGIMENT N. C. TROOPS.—We learn that this regiment was thrown into commotion, soon after the battle below Richmond, by the announcement that Capt. Issac E. Avery, of company E, had been appointed [by the Governor] Lieutenant Colonel over Maj. Webb and others, who were justly entitled to the place. Maj. Webb, who fought through the battle ofManassas, under Colonel Fisher, and through the battle below Richmond as commander of the regiment, at once resigned his place as major, as he should have done under the circumstances, and returned home. His resignation, however, makes room for other favorites; and Captain Avery will most probably now become Colonel, Capt. Tate Lieutenant Col., and Captain Kirkland Major. Lieutenant Alphonzo C. Avery becomes Captain of Company E in place of Capt. Isaac E. Avery promoted.—Raleigh Standard.
