Arrival of Tooops.

--Yesterday morning, about half past 11 o'clock, the 2d regiment of the Sickels New York Brigade arrived by way of the Philadelphia and Wilmington Railroad. Many regiments of inferior-looking men have passed through the city, but the worst of those already noticed were excellent compared with this regiment. Of all the ragtags and bob tails which have ever been mustered into service, there has been none to compare with this regiment, unless it might be the country gang of the jolly old knight, Sir John Falstaff. Some had uniforms on, and some had parts of uniforms, and others were dressed in rags. In appearance they looked as though they had been drinking something besides water for the past few years. Some were lame, several blind of an eye, most of them knocked kneed and pigeon-toed. The regiment is commanded by Col. Geo. R. Hall, and marched by way of Lombard street to the Camden station, where they took the cars for Washington.

About seven o'clock in the evening, the 4th regiment of the same brigade, Col. Taylor in command, arrived and passed directly through to Washington. The men composing this regiment were much better looking than their brethren of the morning.--Baltimore Exchange, 26th.
