The Forty-first Regiment, N. Y. S. V., better known as the "De Kalb Regiment," which was recruited in this city, is expected to arrive home in a few days, probably this week, as their term of service will expire in a day or two. The regiment is composed of Germans, and their countrymen are making arrangements to give them a reception. The regiment left the city three years since one thousand and forty strong, out of which number one hundred and fifty only are expected to return. Their friends held a meeting on Saturday night at Liberty Garden, Bowery, at which Capt. Walters presided. Communications were received from the Fifth and Eleventh Regiment N. Y. S. N. G. offering escorts, and from several German Glee Clubs who offered their services. It is proposed to wind up the reception with a festival.
