Browne's cavalry.

--While on drill at Fairfield Race Course last Friday evening, an order was read to this battalion which took most of them by surprise. It announced that all members under 45 years of age, being liable to conscription, would be allowed twenty days to enlist in companies in the field of their own selection, members over 45 to be permitted to remain in the battalion. The members had heard of this order Friday morning, but it being all fools' day, they thought the report was put out as a hoax. We understand that Capt. Wood's company, being composed mostly of men over 45, will be little affected by this order. Not so with Hayward's and Norfleet's companies.
