We hear that Gen. Scott, immediately on learning that the Maryland Insane Asylum at Catonsville, had been occupied by Federal troops, without authority, ordered their withdrawal. It is supposed they will leave today. An advance guard of sixty United States troops were at Hallafield, above Ellicott's Mills, yesterday morning.

More arrests by the military in Baltimore county. --We have information from the neighborhood of Cockeysville, says the Baltimore Sun of May 31st, that three arrests were made in that vicinity on Monday night inst. The names of the parties arrested are Geo. Worthington, Harrison Scott and Alfred Matthews. It appears that their several residences were visited at a late hour on Wednesday night, and they were taken and carried to York, Pennsylvania, where they are confined. The charge against them is said to have been a participation in the burning of the bridges on the line of the Northern Central railway and the destruction of the telegraph line between Cockeysville and the Pennsylvania line. The whole of the arrests were made by a squad of Pennsylvania volunteers troops. George H. Williams left, the city yesterday afternoon as counsel for Mr. Worthington. These arrests have created a most intense excitement at Cockeysville and the surrounding country.
to the battle assured of success, and hurt upon the heads of these daring and barbarous invaders the punishment they deserve by expelling them with ignominy from our soil. In this campaign against his mother-land — against his conscience--Gen. Scott is doomed to an infamous immorality on the page of history, by being linked with the name and deeds of the traitor Arnold. A coward at heart, and destitute of common honesty, many descendants of the name of Upshaw would be proud to meet him inwould be proud of an opportunity to draw ounces of blood from his carcase to repay them the dollars — their pay for military services — which he drew from the Purser's hands and withheld from them. The stamp of infamy is branded on him. As an officer and a man, he is justly consigned to infamy. " Birds of a feather will flock together;" General Scott is, therefore, most appropriately associated with the condemners of all constitutional obligations, with the licentious and the vile. Se

J., raised a large American flag over the residence of Gen. Scott, in that place. The regiment of volunteers at St. Louis, commanded by Col. F. P. Blair, Jr., has been ordered to Fortress Monroe. Col. Miles, U. S. A., recently stationed at Fort Leavenworth, left St. Louis on Monday for Pittsburg, whssigned, embraces so much of that State as lies within one hundred miles of the Ohio river. Headquarters for the present, Louisville. The Garibaldi Guard marched to the President's house this afternoon, and were reviewed by the President, Gen. Scott, and Secretary Seward; afterwards they drew up in line before the residence of the Sardinian Minister. It is understood that the Garibaldi Guard and New York Ninth Regiment will very soon be ordered to an important advance movement into Vi
Republican Senator that the grand attack is to be made by forty thousand picked men, and the Lincolnites, little knowing the courage of our own gallant men, who are fighting for their homes and their firesides, expect, by the aid of the traitor, Scott, to overrun and subjugate us with very little loss. Judging from what I have seen here, their number, multiplied by ten, will hardly be able to carry out their designs; for a more miserable, ignorant, brutal looking herd I have never seen together than are the armies with which Scott hopes to crush out his own native State. Let our leaders be prepared for them at all points and we have nothing to fear. While standing in Willard's Hotel last night, a small party of men gathered near me, and engaging in earnest conversation, I heard one of them say to another, "Jeff. Davis, the rebel leader, is soon to be cared for." I have just seen with my own eyes the gentleman who has sworn to take his life at any cost; and he will do it. His
