Distinguished Arrival

WASHINGTON, April 5. – The arrival here of Lord Edward Cavendish, son of the late Duke of Devonshire, Lord Cecil, of the Rifle Brigade, stationed in Canada, and Col. Percy of the Northumberland Percy’s, now also stationed in Canada, is regarded as an event which claims for them a cordial reception, they being considered as a type of  a more friendly class in England than the members of Parliament, correspondents of the Press, and others, who, after visiting the South, return to Great Britain sympathizing with the rebels.

The Secretary of War directs that hereafter no persons belonging to the United States service shall be permitted to take passage in any public transport without special permission of the War Department.
