Attempting to Cross the lines. --The provost guard of Benning's brigade, stationed below the city, arrested yesterday the following persons, who were endeavoring to get within the enemy's lines: Edward Ricketts and Thomas J. Winder, members of company A, Second regiment Virginia local defence; Charles Murray, company E, same regiment; M. Cavanaugh, company H, Twelfth Georgia regiment; and William Burke, (over age,) a citizen. The papers accompanying the delivery of these prisoners to Captain Thomas W. Doswell, assistant provost-marshal, specify that they had already passed the main pickets, and, by an accident, came upon the vidette post. A small amount of money was found upon their persons, consisting altogether of species and State bank notes. They claim to be employees at the Tredegar Iron Works, and say that they got lost in trying to find their way to the city from Chaffin's Bluff.
