CAVALRY Company.—The following complimentary notice of Capt. Fiery's Company of Cavalry, we copy from the Cumberland Telegraph :

"The cavalry company intended to be attached to our Home Brigade, arrived here on Saturday last, from Frederick. The company was raised principally at Clearspring in Washington county, and will constitute a portion of the Allegany regiment. The company is an excellent one in every respect, and well equipped. Each man is armed with a Sharp's rifle and navy revolver, and will, in a short time, be furnished with a sabre. The company is officered as follows William Fiery, Captain ; Alexander Flory, 1st Lieutenant; Albert Motz, 2d Lieutenant. The Captain is a gentleman of experience and great energy, and a brother of Louis P. Fiery, the Union champion of Washington county, who is now a candidate for State Senator, of that county. This company will prove a valuable accession to our military force in Cumberland. The secession cavalry across the river will now find something to engage their especial attention."
