PROGRESS OF THE NEW REGIMENT. - The Fourth Onondaga Regiment is progressing beyond all reasonable expectations. The regiment yesterday numbered about nine hundred men, and it is expected, at the rate in which enlistments are being made, that it will reach its maximum number to-day or to-morrow, at farthest. The five companies which have received the minimum number, and are already mustered into the regiment, are, we understand, lettered as follows : Co. A - Capt. Light, Seventh Ward. Co. B - Capt. Grumbach, Second Ward. Co. C - Capt. Lynch, First Ward. Co. D - Capt. Graves, Manlius. Co. E - Capt. Woodford, Pompey. Two other companies, now nearly full, will receive their designating initial letters perhaps to-day, as the Military Committee will meet at the City Hall this forenoon, to complete the company organizations of the regiment.
