The First Train Through. - the first train from Baltimore over the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, since the last destruction by the rebels, arrived yesterday morning. The train had very few through passengers, owing of course to the fact that the trip was in many respects a trial trip. The portion of the road recently built is very rough and the train could not make more than ten miles an hour over it, but she was only about five hours behind time. If Stonewall Jackson and his crowd will only manage to mind their own business for a while the road will soon be in as good condition as ever.
