Albany, Ky., April 26th, says: ‘ Louisville papers, of the 18th and 21st, contain a list of gentlemen and ladies arrested at Nashville last week, by order of Gen. Mitchell, and lodged in the Penitentiary. Miss Fannie Battle, daughter of the gallant Col. Battle, who is so well known throughout Tennessee, was arrested a few days since and sent to Camp Chase. Also, Miss Hartie Hooker. These arrests were made because they had been furnishing provisions to some of our cavalry stationed in Davidson county. Arbitrary arrests are being made daily, more than was ever known, and that often on the evidence of some refugee negro, or his like, an accursed Abolitionist, and buried, with Jacobinde clangs into some prison. These arrests are not confined alone to Tennessee, out embrace this State, and all State where the most unlimited sentiment of Southern feeling is known or suspicioned of existing. Hence the growing discontent in the Abolition army and in the political circles. These are facts gathered from their own papers. ’
