Fayetteville Arsenal.

--The Wilmington Journal has the following:

‘ We learn that movements are on foot and will be consummated as soon as possible, to render the Fayetteville Arsenal a complete armory and arsenal of construction. The hands are now busily engaged altering the old flint and steel into percussion muskets.--Two large steam engines are to be constructed at Richmond to furnish power with which to carry on the heavy work of the establishment. Everything can be in place and in full working order sometime in the present year. Of course the machinery and the workmen will not stand idle in the meantime, but will carry on operations to the full extent of the power and capacity of the establishment.

We regret to learn that one of the workmen from Harper's Ferry, a gentleman whose name we forget or did not learn, having gone on from Fayetteville for his family, which he had left at the Ferry, has been arrested by order of General Banks. He is spoken of as a very worthy and useful man.
