ARRIVAL OF Troops.

During the past week several batteries and some three or four regiments of Infantry have reached the Potomac at Williamsport and other points from Gen. BANK's Division. Among these were the 1st Maryland Regiment, Col. KENLY, a great favorite with the people of that locality, the 5th Connecticut and the 29th Pennsylvania, together with Capts. COALE and HORNER's Cavalry Companies from the 1st Regiment of the Home Brigade, and BEST's and one or two other batteries. There may have been other arrivals along the line of the Potomac, but these are all that we have heard of. The rebels are said to be in strong force on the opposite side of the river in both Berkeley and Jefferson counties. They are known to have several camps a mile or two from the river in the vicinity of Dams No. 4 and 5, and probably also at intermediate points, but it is believed that they have been sent so near our lines by Gen. Jackson to notify him of a forward movement of our troops rather than to attempt one themselves.
