An ex-congressman in Limbo.

--During these times of war, says the N. O. Bee, of the 15th, our detective police are kept busy almost night and day watching suspicious characters and hunting up spies. At eight o'clock Saturday night Smith Izard arrested a notorious personage in the St. Charles Hotel, whom he and the Chief had been searching for all day. This was no other than Ned McGowan, the California ex-Congressman, who was given twenty-four hours notice to quit San Francisco by the Vigilance Committee, and who found a new field for his energies in the Territory of Arizona. He is a tall and robust man, although about fifty-five years of age, fine looking, and wears a remarkable heavy moustache and goatee, the hairs of which are white with age. He arrived in New Orleans last Wednesday, and was at once recognized by a returned Californian, who questioned and watched him until he became satisfied that McGowan was entirely too busy seeking military information, and reported him to the Governor.
