Arrested for blockade running. --Dr. Wm. McClure, M. Harris, and Robert Kirby, citizens of this place, were arrested on Friday evening last, on the charge of illegal blockade running, and placed in Castle Thunder to await an examination before a Court Martial.

The hopeful trio were thereupon taken into custody and brought back to Richmond.--The direction in which the wagon was being driven leaves verction in which the wagon was being driven leaves very little doubt that the destination of these parties was Fortress Monroe.
