THE ARRESTED LADIES IN WASHINGTON

The Administration at Washington continues its arrests of ladies suspected of Secession sympathies.It can now boast among its prisoners the wives of ex-members of Congress, ex-clerks in the Departments, the wives and relatives of officers and soldiers in both the Federal and Confederate armies, boarding-house keepers, ladies of wealth and refinement, ladies in the humbler walks of life, and female servants of all grades.A large house has been rented in Washington for the confinement of the ladies.Its garden is surrounded by a high brick wall, which will prevent their escape.

Mrs. Greenhow, one of the arrested, is a sister of Mrs. Senator Douglasís mother.
