Cumberland troop. --A fine troop of Cavalry, 100 in number, dressed in blue uniforms, arrived from Cumberland county, Va., yesterday evening, under Capt. Johnson. They will soon proceed to the Cavalry encampment at Ashland.
a refugee, was arrested at Camp Curtin on Friday, on suspicion of being a spy. He was handed over to the civil authorities, and had a hearing before Mayor Kepner. His statement was that he is a miller by trade, from Pomeroy, Ohio, but for some time past has been working in Orange county, Va., which place he left because he would not serve in the military or take the test oath. He was twice arrested before he got out of Virginia. His intention was to go from here to visit an uncle in Cumberland county, but while here he had partially made up his mind to enlist. On the way from camp to the city on Saturday he informed persons that every person in Virginia was enlisting, and that the troops of Pennsylvania would have a stronger enemy to contend against than they had any idea of. For these remarks he was placed under military arrest. At the suggestion of District Attorney Herr, he took the oath of allegiance, and was permitted to depart with a certificate to that effect.--Harrisburg
