From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/22/1861, p. 2

Runaways Apprehended. Two of the Abolition soldiers who were confined in one of the prison depots on Main street, made their escape a few days since, and got as far as the neighborhood of Newport News, when they were recaptured by a squad of the patriot army. They were brought back yesterday.
