Arrests

--The Provost Marshal's guard on yesterday arrested a number of parties for various offences — among the number Henry Fitzgerald, Richmond, on suspicion of disloyalty; Charles Murray, Franklin Schumann, and Wm. H. Harrison, for refusing to take the oath of allegiance. The parties work at Sampson & Pae's foundry, and it having been suspected that they were disloyal, the matter was tested by requesting them to take the oath of allegiance, which they utterly refused to do, declaring they were Union men and would rather die than raise their arms in defence of the Southern Confederacy. They were very bold in the enunciation of their treasonable sentiments, but will no doubt have the starch taken out of them considerably before they get out of limbo. John B. Taylor, of Baltimore, Md., was arrested for deserting from Captain Goldsborough's company, 1st Maryland Regiment. The levanting soldier was taken in charge by the 1st Lieut. of his company, and will be detained till called for. Up to 5 o'clock yesterday evening, five soldiers and seven citizens had been taken in custody, some of the latter for drunkenness. We understand that a Yankee telegraph operator was arrested near Dumfries, Va., yesterday, and brought to Richmond on the train.
