Refusing to take Confederate money.

--A citizen of Fauquier, named C. W. Hoffman, was arrested yesterday at Charlottesville, Va, and sent to Richmond for refusing to take Confederate money.--Hoffman is a German, and formerly lived at the North. He came over from Fauquier with a load of something to sell, and first attracted notice by his announcement that he would take nothing but Virginia Bank notes, and going to the town Treasurer of Charlottesville and demanding that description of currency in exchange for an amount of corporation which he held. The Provost Marshal here will dispose of the case as justice may seem to require.
