Curious developments. The reader is directed to another column of this paper for an article of the New York Herald, detaining certain developments which were elicited by the capture and search of Mr. Muir's baggage upon the occasion of his arrest a short time ago. They make the knees of the hoary-headed sinner who governs the Herald smite together in the very extremity of terror. He goes, as plainly as it is possible for a man who has of late shown himself so willfully blind to all the sit is, if Russell had told a lie about the Yankees at Bull Run, he would have been in no danger but the truth is more than they can stomach. It is always the first step of cowards in battle to revenge themselves on the weak and helpless. The cowardly scoundrels who field at the first fire join the hand of Sheriff Muir, revenge themselves by misusing a poor dropsy woman — the property of Meg Melodies — who was supposed to be tainted with Jacobus principle, and a oy in the Prominent war

The New York correspondent of the Philadelphia Ledger writes: No more State prisoners, it is understood, will be sent to Fort Lafayette, for the reason that the number of "transient boarders" at present occupying that place is fully equal to its capacity.
