Mr. George Turner, of the firm of Wadsworth, Turner & Co., of this city, having but recently returned hither from the North, and being suspected of entertaining disloyal sentiments towards the Confederate Government, was on Saturday notified that he was regarded as an alien enemy. Mr. Turner, we learn, detailed the truth of the charge, and avowed his willingness to take the oath of allegiance — not, however, at once, but as soon as he could go to the North and return again to Richmond. This proposition was not satisfactory to the authorities, and the privilege requested was therefore refused to Mr. Turner, who will have to take the oath forthwith or be treated as an alien enemy under the late act of Congress.

Mr. John Gaynor was arrested at the same time, under like circumstances, and manifested the same feelings and intentions with Mr. Turner. Both of these gentlemen were suffered to go at large, with the understanding that they were either to take the oath of allegiance or depart from the Confederate States within a specified time. If they leave, their estates will be confiscated.
