Albemarle county.

The Charlottesville Review, of yesterday, has the following:

‘ When our friend, Lieut. Cochran, of the Albemarle Rifles, was starting to Harper's Ferry, he suggested to Tarlton, a family servant, who was going with him, that he would want "a suit of clothes." Tarlton, we understand, protested against it, remarking that ‘"he would kill a Yankee, and strip him, if his clothes were fit for a gentleman to wear."’

’ The ladies of the town, with characteristic readiness, have gone to work for the soldiers. Uniforms, tents and knapsacks will be provided as fast as their gentle, but willing hands can prepare them. We believe they would not object to take a part in the rougher work.

The North Garden Cavalry are drilling every day. The Whites, Martins, Durrets, Moores, &c., will make their mark somewhere.

Captain Davis's horse company, numbering 75, has been drilling incessantly for the past week. It is a beautiful company.

We understand that the Stony Point Rifles, Captain Peyton, have been ordered to be in readiness for marching.
