From the Richmond Enquirer, 3/7/1862
A NEW PROVOST MARSHAL. - We understand that Capt. A. C.
Godwin, finding the combined duties of Provost Marshal and Commandant of the
prisons too onerous to be efficiently performed by one person, will resign the
former position, and will be succeeded by Capt. Porter, with the rank of
Colonel. Capt. Godwin will act, however, as deputy Provost Marshal, Col. Jones
will be retained in his position as chief of the passport office.
