Suspicious Characters. --A man named William E. Kendall, who professes to hall from Richmond, Texas, was sent to the Provost Marshal of this city, on Wednesday evening, by Gen. Field, as a suspicious character. He was apprehended by the forces of Gen. Field, while endeavoring to make his way through our lines towards the enemy. He professed to be on his way to see his relatives in Loudon county, Va; but, when his person was subjected to an examination, a number of letters addressed to parties residing at the North were found on him, tending greatly to discredit his assertions and induce a strong suspicion that he was setting the part of a spy. He was sent to Castle Godwin. A fellow named Stuart, and a negro, were also sent down by Gen. Field at the same time, and being charged the first with disloyalty and the latter with treasonable practices, were also sent to Castle God win.
