--Owen Riley, a stone-cutter, late of Richmond, was arrested in Petersburg, Va., Wednesday, on the charge of cutting down the secession pole erected there a few nights since.
He had proclaimed the act, and walked about town with the "lone star" cut from the flag pinned on his back.
He was bailed in the sum of $500 to answer the charge.
