This morning, at New Orleans, Lieut. Morel, of the Third District Police, upon information received, arrested a German named Frenzel, who lived on Charles street, in the Second District, charging him with being an incendiary and a traitor to the State and Southern Confederacy. It appears that Frenzel, who was quite an intelligent man, had excited Lieut. Morel's suspicions, by remarks that he was reported to have made in favor of Lincoln and his dynasty; he was watched — the result of which was, that he was heard to boast that there was a powerful organization in New Orleans — at least five thousand strong — which, the moment that the Lincoln army made its apance there, or on the coast, would rise and help them to the best of their ability.--New Orleans Crescent, November 23.
