Welcome arrival.

--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, France, 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.
