The Greenbier Cavalry.

This fine Company, numbering eighty, in command of Capt. Moorman, arrived in this place on Sunday evening last, bearing a beautiful banner which had been prepared and presented to them by the ladies of Lewisburg. It contained the Virginia coat of arms on one side, and on the other, the inscription "God speed you." This is one of the finest Cavalry companies in the state. The soldiers are men of character and respectability, and the horses are A No 1. Greenbrier has now three companies in the service---two infantry and one cavalry.
