rg Artillery, Capt.Braxton; Co. "B," Fredericksburg, Capt. Chew; Co. "A," Fredericksburg, Capt. Sener. The train last evening brought the Caroline Greys, Capt. Quisenberry, a fine looking and well-drilled body of men. The camp is under the command of Capt. R. Milton Cary, of Co. "F." The men are rapidly progressing in the drill, and the raw recruits are put through about seven hours each day. The strictest military discipline is enforced, and everything is upon complete "war footing." Several of the men have suffered somewhat from indisposition, but Dr. Cunningham, of the First Regiment of Virginia Volunteers; Dr. Brock, of the Blues, and Dr. Lyons, of Col. "F," have been unremitting in their attentions, and have established a hospital which they zealously attend. Our camp will give a good account of itself when the "tug" comes, and will show to the vandals of the Ape that we have been "diligent in well doing." Our watch-word now is "order," it will be then, "victory." Mercer.
