The encampment.

--The encampment of cavalry at the Central Fair Grounds commences to-day. At 5 o'clock last evening, six companies had arrived at the camp, namely: Governor's Guard, Henrico Light Dragoons, Company B of Chesterfield, and the Troops from Hanover, Caroline and Amelia counties. --More companies were on their way thither, and Camp Lee will present an imposing spectacle this morning. The horses that we saw were generally good steeds, and the men rode as if they were used to it. The tents are pitched on the plat of ground beyond the Exhibition Hall. Though camp service is new to many of the soldiers, they entered upon their duties with alacrity, and seemed to anticipate much pleasure as well as benefit from the experience.

Persons desiring to visit Camp Lee can go up in the cars at any hour that suits their convenience.
