e recruiting raid armies to take Washington, and I am actually assured that General Scott has alleged as a reason for raising a standing army around the Capitol, tha made the pretext for raising menacing forces.

The entire party were taken to the second station-house. Crossmore, who is charged with selling tickets and chances in a lottery, and associating with slaves in an unlawful assembly, was afterwards admitted to bail in $500, for his appearance before the Mayor this morning. The negroes arrested are: Reuben Pleasant, free; Henry, Tom and Edgar, slaves of Jas. A. Scott; Henry, slave of Geo. Timberlake; George, slave of John Freeland; Henly, slave of T. B. Grundy; Preston, slave of Jas. Pleasants; Clem, slave of Wm. H. Haxall; Phabious, slave of Edward Rawlings; Lewis, slave of L. Brander; Caleb, free; and William, slave of John Priddy. Part of these colored speculators were punished and discharged; the others were held for Court.
