Castle Godwin. – Several persons were arrested by the Provost Marshal's force yesterday and placed in Castle Godwin. Among the number, M. May and M.

A man named Charles Smith was arrested for joining several military companies, and receiving the usual bounty, when the law provides that he shall not join but one.
