From Norfolk. the arrest of Ministers Mason and Slidell--Exchange of shots between the British steamer and the Federal man-of-war — descent upon a gambling House — Court Matters, &c. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Nov. 18, 1861. The news of the arrival in Hampton Roads, of Minsters Slidell and Mason, also their Secretaries, in the U. S. frigate San Jacinto, excited considerable interest here Saturday night and yesterday. It is stated, by a gentleman from Old Point, that six shots were fired between the two vessels. It is also reported that the papers of the Ministers were not taken, and that the ladies connected with the party were allowed to proceed on the voyage. On Saturday night a prompt and successful descent was made upon a gambling establishment on Main, near Church street, by the police officers. The surprise was terrible among the money- making proprietors and their numerous patrons. The affair was well arranged by the offic
rced, also, to change their occupation. While the war which is waged to take from us the right of self-government can never attain that end, it remains to be seen how far it may work a revolution in the industrial system of the world, which may carry suffering to other lands as well as to our own. In the meantime, we shall continue this struggle in humble dependence upon Providence from whose searching scrutiny we cannot conceal the secrets of our hearts, and to whose rule we confidently submit our destinies. For the rest, we shall depend upon ourselves — Liberty is always won where there exists the unconquerable will to be free, and we have reason to know the strength that is given by a conscious sense, not only of the magnitude, but of the righteousness of our cause.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. the speculators — probable Detention of S. W. Ficklin — death --Bishop Meade, &c. Charlottesvills, Nov. 18, 1861. The citizens of this town and vicinity complain bitterly of the extortions of the speculators in the necessaries of life, and especially in the article of salt. A sack of salt from the salt-works of Stuart in Washington county contains from 139 to 140 pounds, and this is called three bushels, and the moderate price asked and obtained per sack in this place last week was nine dollars. But it is to be hoped this state of things has come to an end, as one of our citizens on Saturday purchased in Lynchburg salt at $4 per sack. and to-morrow one of our merchants will leave here to purchase a sufficiency for all who desire it, and the price to the consumer is to be cost and freight.
