Movement OF Troops.

—Last week Capt. ZELLER's Company of Cavalry, also Capt. Patterson’s, and Capts. KARNS and KENNEDY'S Infantry Companies, attached to Gen. LAHON's Brigade, proceeded East for the purpose of being taken into Gen. Cooper’s Brigade, the first named Brigade having been disbanded. The Infantry Companies are to be attached to the Third Maryland Volunteers, and the Cavalry Companies to the Third Maryland Cavalry. During the week Company H. 1st Michigan Cavalry, commanded by Capt. THOMAS M. HOWRIGAN, arrived at the Fair Grounds near town. This is a splendid Company, having elegant horses and being finely equipped in every respect, and has taken the place of Capt. HORNER's Company in guarding the Government Telegraph, the latter Company having gone up the road. Though rumored that Capt. WELSH'S Company had been ordered to Fort Carroll near Baltimore, that Company is still here discharging its duties as a guard to the Government stores, &c. HAMPTON'S Artillery, with its six ten pounder Parrott Guns, Carriages, Caisons, &c, is quartered upon the Fair Grounds, and if we mistake not, with make its mark upon the enemy's ranks whenever or wherever it may be brought into action.

P. S.—Since the above was prepared Captain WELSH'S Company received marching orders, and as we go to Press this (Tuesday) morning, they are preparing to leave for Frederick City. As they are a Washington County Company, they carry with them the best wishes of our citizens for their future welfare.
