Wholesale arrests in Maryland.

Baltimore, Sept. 14.
--The Provost Marshal at daylight on yesterday arrested Mayor Brown, Ross Winans, Charles and F. Lawrence, S. T. Wallis, and L. P. Scott, members of the Legislature, and delivered them to the commander of Fort McHenry.

Congressman May and legislators Henry M. Morfit, and W. G. Harrison, are reported to have been arrested. It is also reported that Benj. G. Howard, the peace candidate for Governor, has been arrested; and also Dennison Giventeur and Dr. Lynch, members from Baltimore county, and J. Hall, the editor of the Baltimore South.

The Maryland Legislature was to have met on Tuesday.

[In the names of the members of the Legislature from Baltimore arrested, as stated in the above message, there are evidently several mistakes. We give below a list of all the members from Baltimore, which will enable the reader to correct these errors. apprehend that all these members who have not escaped will be put under arrest, to accomplish the object of the infernal tyrant at Washington, which is to prevent any action adverse to his schemes, by the Maryland Legislature.--Eds. Dis.]
