    WASHINGTON, D. C., July 12, 1857.

    DEAR SIR:-Some of our citizens, I am told, lately left here for Philadelphia, three of whom were arrested and brought back.

    I beg you will inform me whether two others-(I., whose wife is in Philadelphia, was one of them), ever reached your city.

    To-morrow morning Mrs. Weems, with her baby, will start for Philadelphia and see you probably over night.

    Yours Truly, J. B.
