--Adjutant George W. Alexander
arrived in this city yesterday, and is stopping at the Powhatan Hotel
He makes but a brief sojourn, being on duty for the battalion.
One noble- hearted lady fitted out twenty-four of the Zouaves in shirts, drawers, and socks; but forty others require some articles of clothing, which they cannot get from home.
Any articles sent to the Adjutant
will be thankfully received.
A party of the Zouaves at Tappahannock
, the other night during the alarm, volunteered and marched ten miles through a drenching rain to assist in Fort Lowry.
These men were not yet mustered in, some only arriving that day from Maryland
as an escort for Mrs. Alexander
, who, we are happy to state, is safe in Westmoreland
, after many adventures since her husband's escape from Fort McHenry
, in which she played so remarkable a part.
) is still in Fort McHenry
, and is well, but strictly guarded.
Any Marylanders who desire to join the Zouaves can see Adjutant Alexander
, at the Powhatan
, from 8 to 11 A. M., until Wednesday.
