Arrest of suspicious characters. --It was made known to the Vigilance Committee of this city, on Saturday, that a Union flag was flying from the mast of a small vessel near the mouth of Tanner's creek, and Mr. John S. Rosson was sent down to arrest the parties who had raised it. At 2 o'clock, Mr. Rosson and several others returned to the city, having in charge E. W. Waterhouse and Warren Hansel. They were taken to the office of the Mayor, who committed them to jail to await further evidence, which may be adduced this morning. Arthur P. Jones is the name of the vessel. A large red flag, the "Union" part of a United States flag, and a large pennant, were found on board the vessel. These, it is supposed, they had been using as signals. Waterhouse hails from Connecticut, and Hansel is from New Jersey.--Norfolk Argus.

Target practice. --After the Tredegar battalion were dismissed from parade on the 4th instant, company D, commanded by Captain William E, Tanner, preceded by a band of music, marched down Main street, and thence to Voegler's Garden, where they partook of a dinner prepared for the occasion. After dinner, they engaged in a target practice, when, upon examination, it was found that private Joseph Melvin had made the best shot. He was then presented with a silver modal suitably inscribed. Late in the afternoon the company returned to the city much pleased with the exercises of the day. The men of the battalion make admirable material for soldiers.

From Norfolk. runaway negroes--"Bohemian" gone to North Carolina--the news, &c. [special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Feb. 3, 1862. I learn that more slaves effected their escape last week from Norfolk county. They belong to farmers residing on or near Tanner's creek. They doubtless get off at night in boats sufficiently large to cross the Roads and land them at or near Fortress Monroe. The loss of valuable negro men falls heavily upon the gentlemanly and kind-hearted farmers and gardeners in the section of the county above mentioned, and prompt and judicious measures should at once be taken to prevent slaves from getting off by water to the forts and vessels of the common enemy. The deluded negroes, thus leaving their best friends and comfortable homes, where they are fed, clothed, and allowed all reasonable privileges, vainly suppose that they will fare better, and the more favorably situated, under the protection of the Yankees, than at ho
