Looks like a volunteer as noted above (the braid on his uniform appears to be white, not yellow as it would be for a regular - yellow appears quite a lot darker at this time due to the photographic process).

Also, could be artillery - very similar uniform, but blue tunic with red details rather red with blue details.  Again, you really can't tell the difference between red and dark blue in nineteenth-century photos, due to the process.
