From the Richmond Dispatch, 1/8/1863, p. 1, c. 5

Captured. – George Swain and Lemuel Underwood, two members of the 4th Louisiana regiment, arrested some months ago and put in Castle Thunder, and who escaped therefrom, were re-arrested yesterday by the detectives of the Eastern Military Prison, and conducted to their old quarters. Four Yankee negroes, who also escaped from the Castle some weeks ago while unloading wood into the yard, were gotten out of the county jail Tuesday, where they had been placed as runaways, having been arrested by our pickets between this city and Williamsburg while trying to regain their late associates.
