Arrival and reception of the Massachusetts Regiment in Washington — their wounded, &c.

Washington, April 19
--The Massachusetts Regiment arrived here safely at half-past 5 o'clock, from Baltimore, and was welcomed at the depot by an immense concourse of citizens, including many ladies. On their march to their quarters, in the Capitol, repeated cheers from the multitude rent the air. Twenty-five of their wounded members were conveyed in carriages to our infirmary, where Drs. Waring, Butler, and a corps of assistants, quickly made arrangements for their reception. The examinations, just concluded, show that none are seriously injured. Every attention is paid them, and the belief is that in a short time they will be again ready for service.
