Visiting Military.

--A handsome military company (F,) from Norfolk came among us yesterday quite unexpectedly. The corps numbered 38 men, and though but recently organized, their appearance indicated excellent discipline, and reflected credit upon the accomplished commander, Capt. Bradford. --The object of their visit — which is alluded to elsewhere — was most meritorious, and speaks well for them as soldiers and as citizens. The uniform of the company is dark blue, trimmed with gold cord, black cap and pompon. They quartered at the Spotswood House, and our soldiers bestowed upon them those attentions calculated to make such a visit agreeable.--They leave for Norfolk this morning, by way of Petersburg.

Capt. Bradford, who was lately an officer in the U. S. Army, expressed himself highly delighted with the reception accorded to his command by the volunteers of Richmond.
