--We are gratified to learn that the statement of the arrest of Mr. Lanier
of the firm of Lanier
. & Co., copied from the Baltimore
papers, was erroneous.--He gave us this assurance in person on Saturday.
The junior partner of the firm, Mr. Selby
, was arrested by General Banks
' order, while on his way to Baltimore
, where his family reside.
This gentleman was taken to Baltimore
on Thursday and imprisoned in Fort McHenry
on the charge of ‘"treason."’
