From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/6/1862, p. 1, c. 4

Arrival of Yankee Prisoners. Sixty Yankee prisoners were received at the Libby prison yesterday, having been sent thither from Gordonsville by Major Boyle, Provost Marshal at that place. They were all privates in the 3d R. I cavalry, and were captured on the 31st of October, at Aldie, near Leesburg, in a cavalry dash by Stuart's men, while on picket. It is said that our men rushed on the surprised and sleeping Abolitionists like a whirl wind, and that they surrendered almost at discretion.
