From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/27/1862, p. 1, c. 1

Prison Items. Lewis Beckham, a deserter from the 1st Virginia Battalion, was arrested yesterday, by order of Major Griswold, and sent to Castle Thunder. Twenty eight deserters, mostly from North Carolina regiments, were also received there the same day from Camp Holmes, having been sent thither by Major Mallett. In the above prison proposal punishment has been substituted for sacking. Eight men, who fell on an inmate of the Castle on Tuesday, and robbed him, were each twenty five lashes. Among the eight were deserters from the Yankees.
