hat two captains and fourteen privates have just been taken prisoners. Arrest of a native of Lynchburg. A Washington dispatch, of the 16th inst., says: Banker Smith's son, just arrested here, is a native of Lynchburg, Virginia, has arrived here since 1854, and always voted for Southern proclivities. The proof against him is that, in a rebel mailbag recently seized on its way across the Potomac, a letter to the rebel General was found containing an account of the numbers of the Union army of the Potomac, plans of fortifications, and a scheme for capturing Washington. There was a fictitious signature to it, but it is now known to be Smith's son. Fort Henry. This fort is 90 miles from Paducah, and 20 miles below the long bridge, across the Tennessee, of the Memphis and Ohio railroad. It is an open fort, (not casemate,) but has, we understand, several very heavy guns in battery. Fort Donelson is on the Cumberland river, and 13 miles distant from Fort Henry.
