--A train arrived at the Petersburg depot
on Saturday evening, from the South
, with the most valuable lot of freight which it has been our good fortune to see since the commencement of the war. It includes a large number of cases well packed with Enfield rifles; bales of blankets; kegs and boxes of cartridges, and many other articles unnecessary to enumerate.
It matters not whence this valuable supply was obtained — whether from England
, or elsewhere; but the style of packing is as unlike anything we have been accustomed to see in America
as a hawk is to a handsaw.
We consider the arrival a very important event in the campaign.
The arms, munitions, and stores will be transported to the point where they are most needed, and we expect to hear a good account of them hereafter.
