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

Robberies. Alex Bane, A. M. Lee and J. Rise, patients in General Hospital, No. 7 & Baskervill's store, Cary street,) were arrested last night by the Provost Guard and lodged in Castle Thunder, for stealing $142 in C. S. Treasury notes from the pocket of a comrade named H. Roberts, on Tuesday.

Yesterday evening, as a soldier named Patrick McPherson, who had just been paid off, was passing a grocery on Cary, between 17th and 18th sts., a man rushed out, felled him with the stroke of a bludgeon, and stole his money. He made complaint at the office of the Assistant Provost Marshal of the Eastern District, and officers were dispatched in search of the guilty party.
