, were yesterday sent down from the Army of Northern Virginia on the charge of mutiny, and accompanying them was an order that they should be put into double Irons until tried by court-martial.
The parties are members of the 1st Va battalion of regulars, under command of Major
D B Bridgeford
The battalion has been up to this time employed as provost guard for the Army of Northern Virginia.
It appears that these parties, becoming dissatisfied from some cause, on Monday threw down their arms and refused to do further duty.
They were immediately packed off to this city, and have been lodged in Castle Thunder.
This is the first time that anything of this kind has occurred in any of our armies.
