Moved Camp.

The cavalry, under command of Captain Edson Gerry, moved their camp last week to grounds near Funkstown, in this County.— This will prove beneficial to the troops and decidedly comfortable to such of our inhabitants as dwell in our suberbs [sic]. It is so natural for soldiers to get up independent scouting and foraging parties that they cannot resist the temptation when quartered near a town of the size of this.
