Rumored arrest

--We copy the following from the Norfolk Herald, of yesterday:

It is reported that Miers W. Fisher, Esq., the talented and patriotic delegate from Northampton to the Virginia State Convention, has been captured by the Abolitionists on his way to his home on the Eastern Shore, from York River, and that he is held a prisoner by Gen. Butler at Fort Monroe. This is unpleasant intelligence, and we hope it may not be confirmed.
