Zarvona Zouaves.

--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. Colonel Thomas (Zarvona) 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.
