Arrival extraordinary. --Major Philip Barry, of Moundsville, arrived in this city on the Central train Sunday. The Major is a veteran soldier, and for many reasons is calculated to attract interest. He was an ensign in the battle of Waterloo, being then only seventeen years of age. In the famous "Black Hawk war" he commanded a company, of which Abraham Lincoln, now President of the United States, was a private member. In the Mexican war he served a Captain. He is a genuine Southerner in sentiment, a gallant gentleman in the army and in civil life, a true friend, and a deserving officer. He has made immense sacrifices in the cause of the South, and with great difficulty succeeded in escaping through the Federal lines.
