From Fortress Monroe--arrest of a Virginian. Fortress, Monroe, July 1. --Two regiments will advance to New Market bridge to-morrow. It is raining incessantly. Col. Carey Jones, of Hampton, has been arrested in consequence of several letters found on board the prize British schooner Tropic Wind, which implicates several prominent persons. [This is the schooner which the British Consul at Richmond, in a card on yesterday morning, stated had "been released and given back to the charge of the master."] Fortress Monroe, July 1.--It is well known here that an attack on Newport News was only prevented on last Friday night by the incessant rains which prevailed during that night.
