Arrested for blockade running. --Dr. Wm. McClure, M. Harris, and Robert Kirby, citizens of this place, were arrested on Friday evening last, on the charge of illegal blockade running, and placed in Castle Thunder to await an examination before a Court Martial. The specific charges against these persons have not yet become fme of the arrest of the doctor, he was driving a wagon in which were two coffins supposed to contain dead bodies; but upon examination it was found that Harris and Kirby were the occupants. The hopeful trio were thereupon taken into custody and brought back to Richmond.--The direction in which the wagon was being driven leaves verction in which the wagon was being driven leaves very little doubt that the destination of these parties was Fortress Monroe.

Harris, charged with aiding and abetting persons to reach the Yankee lines, were again taken up. After the examination of witnesses the Commissioner failed to find any evidence convicting the two latter, whereupon Kirby was discharged from custody; but Harris, having a substitute in the service, and being, under a recent act of Congress, liable to milKirby was discharged from custody; but Harris, having a substitute in the service, and being, under a recent act of Congress, liable to military duty, was ordered to be taken to the enrolling officer.
