The arms for Virginia.

We are glad to correct the statement that the New York police had forbidden the shipping of arms and "muniments" (to use a popular term) of war on board the steamers plying between that city and Norfolk and Richmond. The agents, Messrs. Ludlam & Watson, have authorized us to contradict it positively, after communicating with their New York house. Since the statement, the Yorktown has left with quite a lot of arms for our ports. The statement was made by the Norfolk Day Book, upon what that paper no doubt considered good authority. We say we are gratified to correct the statement; for our difficulties with the Northern States are already sufficiently complicated, and we desire not to see them aggravated by any more issues between the individual States. We have another reason, and that is, that while we desire to see Southern direct trade festered, we would always, if possible, be on friendly social and commercial relations with the noble city of New York, who merits alike admiration and esteem for her enterprise and her liberal and catholic spirit.
