From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/5/1862

Runaways Caught. Six negro men, employed by the Fredericksburg Railroad Company, were taken yesterday by a squad of cavalry, while making tracks for the Yankee lines below Fredericksburg. They had provided themselves for the journey, and were making good time when overhauled. They were brought to Richmond and put in Castle Godwin.
