--Joseph H. Neff, a ship chandler has been arrested and committed for trial in Wilmington, N. C., on the charge of using language expressive of hostility to the Government as well as to the cause of the Southern States, and of approval of the course of Lincoln. The Wilmington Journal remarks, in reference to the matter:

‘ We fear that this case is not an isolated one There are men who have made all their money here, who have deserted the community, and who are preparing to desert it, and who, in the prospect of their early escape to Abolitiondom, are rather incautious in their expressions. They will bear watching. No man ought to be allowed to go backwards and forwards, to and from North, or to communicate with that section. It is neither more nor less than carrying on a correspondence with the enemy.
