Fine Regiment.

--The Fifth Regiment of North Carolina Volunteers arrived in Richmond yesterday morning via the Petersburg Railroad. The Regiment is composed of the choicest material. It comprises twelve companies, embracing an aggregate of eleven hundred and fifty men. The regimental officers are Col. McKenny, Lieut. Col. Ibrie, and Maj. Green, all good and experienced officers. Immediately on the arrival of the Regiment, they went into camp in the vicinity of the York River Railroad Depot, and being under marching orders left in the afternoon. The men of this Regiment have no reason to complain of the manner in which they are armed and equipped. They are capable of meeting the enemy with any weapon with which he may see fit to advance. Their muskets are of the latest and most approved description of that weapon.
