From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/15/1862, p. 1, c. 5

Prison Items. Six deserters were received at Castle Thunder yesterday from the Provost Marshal of Petersburg, to be returned to their regiments. C. Ryan, of the 10th Louisiana, was put in as a deserter by order of Major Griswold. H. B. Glenn, a soldier, was imprisoned for playing old sledge with another soldier for his transportation ticket and furlough, which he won. There were 390 prisoners in Castle Thunder yesterday. All the battle-field plunder collected by detectives of the Eastern District for some time past, was yesterday sent to the Government warehouse for distribution among our soldiers.
