A detachment of United States Dragoons, unmounted, reached here yesterday afternoon, at one o'clock, per Northern Central Railway, for the U. S. Cavalry Barracks, Carlisle, Pa., on route for Harper's Ferry, where they will remain subject to the orders of the Secretary of War.
They numbered 64 men, including rank and file, and notwithstanding they are nearly all recruits, yet there are a number of experienced military men amongst them.--Lieut. Jones was in command, with Orderly Sergeant Wm. Kelly, and Sergeants McGee and O'Brien.
They were accompanied by several buglers, but marched through the streets without music, and bore the impress of real soldiers.
Blankets were folded in their knapsacks, and with the heavy overcoats strapped above, they looked like men ready for the practical operations of war. They left here in the 4 o'clock. Western train, and during their brief stay in the Monumental City were visited by a number of our military.
