More arrests by the military in Baltimore county.

--We have information from the neighborhood of Cockeysville, says the Baltimore Sun of May 31st, that three arrests were made in that vicinity on Monday night inst. The names of the parties arrested are Geo. Worthington, Harrison Scott and Alfred Matthews. It appears that their several residences were visited at a late hour on Wednesday night, and they were taken and carried to York, Pennsylvania, where they are confined. The charge against them is said to have been a participation in the burning of the bridges on the line of the Northern Central railway and the destruction of the telegraph line between Cockeysville and the Pennsylvania line. The whole of the arrests were made by a squad of Pennsylvania volunteers troops. George H. Williams left, the city yesterday afternoon as counsel for Mr. Worthington. These arrests have created a most intense excitement at Cockeysville and the surrounding country.
