Arrest* in the County. On Friday night last. aV>out 12 o’clock, a pome of Federal marines, numbering aome thirty men. under the command of Cspt. Mygwlt of the steamer Reliance, surrounded the house of Joseph 11. Mad do*, finqr., near Herring Creek on the Potomac, and arrested Joseph 11. Mad dox, Thomas H Maddox and Joseph S. Wilson, the latter of whom, we learn, is a resident of Haltimnre eiry. The arrested parties wars taken to Washington where thsy are present confined. Joseph 11. Maddox is represented by the Firming SUir to be an officer in the Confederate Army and all the parties are charged by the same piper to have been engaged in recruiting men for the Confederate service. We have no doubt that the allegations of the Star are false, and we trust soon to be able to reconi the release of the prisoners and their sals return to their families. The Peace Party. We are free to confess, that we now re gard the rrcanstruction of the Union upon any basis, and especially upon the basis of the Federal Constitution, as altogether a chimerical idea and beyond the range of reasonable probability. With this convic tion, we think that good and patriotic men. Instead of laboring to bring about a recon struction by war or childishly lamenting and complaining of tho evils which dis ruption may have brought upon the coun try, would bo far better engaged if their energies were directed to the making of peace and the most of the circumstances by which me find ourselves surrounded. The theory—which has alone commended this war to many honest minds—that there is a strong oppressed Union sentiment at the South, only wailing the successful ad vance of the Federal army to develop it •df and rescue the different seceded Stat< s from the domination of the Have oligar- j ♦by. as Ul' called, is fhst being d’s a, d by intelligent snd candid men even at the North. This section, without we are very niNoh mistaken, is industriously waking up to the conviction, that the South is a oni: and determined upon separation, cost i what it may. Whether for good reasons or for no reasons at all. the South has de termined in the most deliberate and solemn manner and with an unanimity which is without parallel in the history of ci i commotions, that it is well for her to be alone or at least to live apart from the uon-alare States with which she was re cently connected. In tho presence of this determination and of an undoubted ability to maintain it, it is bile to debate the ques tion whether secession is a crime against the Constitution or which section was orig inally in fault. We do not advance an j iueh by such a discussion. If the South is in the wrong, and the North can neither reform her by argument or by force, the very best thing, it strikes us. for the N rth to do in that ease is to mske peace and the best international bargain she can with the South. But it would be a great, an unbearable humiliation to our national; pride to acknowledge the independence of the Confederate-States. A great humilia tion it might be. but we deny that it would be unbearable. There is not a nation in the civilised world—certainly not one upon the continent of Europe—that has not been afLi ted with n similar humiliation, but they have all contrived to bear it and some of them have even fattened upon it. But •it I* idle to whimper after this fashion. The North cannot conquer the South and she knows It. The South knows It and the whole world knows it. The acknowl edgment of the independence of the Con federate States is a stern neceesity which may he postponed but cannot be avoided, and the question arises, whether the Stab* that still acknowledge the authority of the Federal Government shall consent to ruin themselves in order to postpone for n year or so n humiliation which is inevitable and which ia likely to be increased both in breadth and depth the longer the war cnonanes. The mission of the Peace Party ef Maryland, if we naderstand it, is to avoid this ruin by bringing the war which is new raging between the two sec tions to n speedy conclusion. Thus in terprstiag its purpose, we shall cheerful ly give to it in the coming contest in this Stale nil the aid and comfort we can command. i f £ InOVrpfl | Joseph Radford, a citicen jf Beggar** • Neck, in this County. was drowned whilst {attempting to crocs Britton'* Bay, in a canoe, on last.

I The Hews During the past ;wcek the most intense excitement has prevailed in our communi ty. growing out of ; the incessant rumors and reports that have reached here, in re lation to the posture of affairs in and around Washington. Evejry day brought tidings of the advance of tip* Confederates, togeth er with rumors thaff either Beauregard or Johnson bad. or wquld speedily cioss the Potomac, and make’ a flank movement upon the Federal Capitolj The week has pas sed, however, and jdie Potomac has not been crossed, nor has there been a further advance made uponjthe part of the Con federates. On the {contrary, late advices from Washiugton show a retrograde move ment on the part of Beauregard, though Munson Hill and ij:her recently fortified posts an* still in thejhands of the Confed erates. The prevailing Federal impres sion seems now to U>, that an attack npon Washington, if ever contemplated by Beauregard, h.u, at h a>t for the present, been abandoned. We, however, place no reliance in any thing that reaches us, by way of Washington! or indeed from any ! source, unless well authenticated by rclia ♦ v j ble and responsible parties. Indeed, in our judgment, it is more likely now that . the Confederates are;around Washington, in full force, than ifjthc Washington Star. Federal telegrams, and other and like sources of informatidD had stated that such was the case, and that they were hourly expecting an attack from the “rebels.” — The late heavy cannonading, heard In the direction of ia officially re ported to have been “battery practice, wi’hout balls,** but from other sources, we learn, that there has,been a series of heavy .-kirmishtiig between the outposts of the belligerents, for the past several days, in which, we infer from the non-puhlication of results, the Federate came of second best. Advices from Wcittern Virginia, to the Bth instant, state thsvt Ruseucrans is ad vancing upon l*ee, and that a great and decisive engagement, in that quarter, is imminent. From Baltimore city, we learn, that Gen. Dix and the Provost Marshall are again actively at work —making arrests, seizing upon private property, suppressing the picture trade, regulating the city fash j ions and laying strict;inhibitions upon the f colors, red and blue. This business— maU as it is—is crofting considerable ex citement in that city.’ and the loyalty of the juveniles is reported to be wavering under this new-fangled and puritanical species of oppression Mayor Brown has j also been ordered to suspend the payment |of the salaries of tho Baltimore Police. 1 upon the ground that it is “levying an unnecessary tax upon the citizens of Baltimore** and. that; “the peace of the 1 city is seriously endangered by the offi cial employment of nien to remain idle.” Capt. Alexander, f the Potomac Zou aves, has escaped from Fort McHenry, which has led to redoubled vigilance upon the part of the of that post. It is reported that Mntthias* Point has been by the Government, and that n large force bus been stationed there, and also at Pope*s Creek cn the Maryland side. The Peace Convention met in Balti m ort qm Tuesday last, tat we have re ~ * V ceived no report of its proceedings.

GEORGE H. MORGAN. Semtcmbor Bth 1801. THE HOME GUARD. A an earnest of what the Tories of Ma i rylund mean to do, we have under the auspices of the Government and with the approbation of The A liter icon and other : organs of the Union party, the organizu- I lion of a 44 Home Guard,” throughout tin* ’State, which is being regularly drilled, i aud supplied with arms by the Govern- I ment. The object of the move ment is apparent. It is to sow the j seeds of civil war among our own people ;to arm neighbor against neighbor, friend ; against friend. It is to reproduce in .; Maryland all the horrors which are now i being enacted in Missouri—to remove the i question of her destiny from the balh>t-box ' i to the battle-field, and to take away every ‘ possibility of a peaceful solution. This ;is the insidious design of the Adminis tration iu arming the Union men of Ma ! ryland. There is no pretence that the “Home Guard” is needed for the defence of the Capital or that its members are to • constitute part cither of the regular or , volunteer forces of the Union They are being armed, drilled and equipped at the Government ex (tense, without being en j listed in its service under the authority of r | a special act ot Congress, appropriating $2,000,000 fur the purchase and distribu - 11 turn of arms among the loyal citizens of Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri. In 1 the meantime every effort is being made ; i to disarm that portion of our people who are supposed to. sympathize with the i (South, or are known to be opposed to the aud policy of the Administra tion. Swords which were family heir !, loons, —muskets which hod been m pos - session of the families of the owners since the Revolution or the War of 1812—fowl -1 iwg-pieces which were never intended to Ibe used except in a partridge field or a snipe-bog—pistols which were kept mere i ly as a defence against burglars aud rob | here—all these have been taken from the , j bouses of citizens, and furnish now per . baps, part of tbe armory of this very “Hume Guard.” Why (his disarming of ' one half of our population, and secret arming of tbe other Y The very mystery . with which the organisation of (he Home Guard baa been conducted, justifies the darkest suspicions as to its purposes —sus- picious which a review of the past con duct and present spirit of the Union-men in Maryland, is calculated to strengthen rather than lemove. — South. ___ r Yotno America in England. —At a well-known bchool at Stoneyhurst, in Rag land, the boys have caught the lever of Ame lit an revolution, and, as Federalists ■ aud Confederates, have been fighting | obstinately.

Hatters* Inlet, the scene of the late eu [ gag>*tuent. in which lira Hotlsr won his victory, is situated alr-’Ut twelve miles 1 from Cape H altera? lighthouse It J* |, known to the mariner by ahw sand Island, 'which was formerly • round hammock, covered with trees u the east sice of the j entrance. The breakers seldom extend 1 entirely across the entrafife to the cove | or harbor, but r.t nosrly aW time*’make •on each side, and between them H*? the I channel. The bar b* approached front the northward and eastward, and vessrl should keep in four or five fath oms of water ab*ng the breakers until ! upwi h the opening. The least water on the lar is fourteen mean low w-iter. and the rise and fall of tlje fide but two j feet. Once inside thr inlet the mariner 1 finds g'Mtd nchrage in # hard sand bwt • tom: except a few sticky spots at the head ‘of the channel. The anchorage affords I protection from all winds except those ! fr**m the southward and westward.

I As an entrance to Pamlico, Albemarle and Currituck Sounds, tkc possession of Ilatteras Inlet is of vast importance to tbe Federal government. NN ith Ocracoke aud i Hattcras Inlets closed. North Carolina may ,j be said to be completely shut iu from the ocean. Privateer? can i.o longer be sent through the Dismal Swamp Canal *ud Albemarle Sound, and all odnuuuiii- I cation between Virginia aud Europe is effectually cut off. Newborn, on the : Neuse river: Washington, on the Pamlico river; Elizabeth City, on the Pasquotank, | and a number of other ports on the Roaii ! oke and Chowan rivers, will also be in- I eluded in tbe blockade. Pamlico hound (au inland sea. 80 miles long and from ten to twenty-five mile* wide, conn cting ' with the Albemarle Sound on the north and the Pamlico and Neuse rivers on the West) can no longer be of any service to ' the Confederates of North Carolina, now • that its principal inlet has been closed. ' Albemarle and Currituck Sounds will also be effectually closed. Ocracoke Inlet, which is about twelve : miles southwest-of Hattcras Inlet, is dc fenued by a battery of 82-pounders, six in i number. In a military jaunt of view its possession is equally as important as that ol Hattcras Inlet, as it affords an easy entrance to Pamlico Sound and its numer ous tributaries. Through tut? inlet ves sel? from Tarborough, Greenville aud Washington, on the Pamlico river, and Wayuesborough. Goldstorough and NVw b*-ra. on the Neuse river, have been in tbe habit of proceeding to sea. Tax Prisoners or War. —Almost nil the leading journal? of the North, even the hottest of the War organ?, agree in stie nuously urging upon the Administration the moral necessity for allowing an ex change of pri?ouers. The utter absurdi ty is admitted everywhere of clinging to ' a punctilio that can effect nothing but an j aggravation of those sufferings which are • crowding thick and fust upon us. Vet the Government seems as iu sensible to the re monstrances and counsel? of its own organ? u? it is to the most natural dictates of hu manity and of common tens;. It is diffi cult to conjecture what reasonable justifi cation can be offered by those in power to ! the unfortunate beings who are thus made the victims of Administrative obstinacy. 1 They were prompt to answer the call of the President, in his emergency, and now, in their hour of need, he deserts them.— Is this heartlcssncss, or Uit insanity Y The Administration knows that should hostili ties be protracted through one vigorous i campaign, there must be ultimately an ex | change of prisoners ; why then pout ami falter like a headstrong schoolboy about a concession that is inevitable ? Every j hour of delay is an hour of discomfort, j pain and anxiety to number? of worthy ; people, who deserve the especial consider ation of the Government, since in its ser vice their mishap occurred. Yel they are left lo languish in prison, because some ; miserable quibble or point of etiquette ; stands in the way of negotiation for their : release. This is carrying folly to the : verge of criminality.— X. U. Lktiiy ' Xrui. \ \ | From the Boston Courier.
