A gentleman of this city has a sister in Baltimore who is one of the sufferers from the iniquity of the Federalists. One of General Dix's no gun police officers resides in one of her houses, for the rent of which she lately called upon him. He replied that he would pay no rent to an Irish rebel, adding a most insulting epithet The spirited lady rejoined that Jeff. Davis would soon be there, and would make him pay it. whereupon he forthwith arrested her upon the charge of treason. The letter which contains this information also states that Davis arrival in Baltimore would be greeted with such a triumphal procession as the Monumental City has never yet witnessed.
