From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/13/1862, p. 1, c. 4

Mayor's Court--Wednesday, Nov. 19th. -...John Haley, of the 1st South Carolina regiment, having been picked up in the Second Market while corned, was dispatched to Castle Thunder, to be sent back to his regiment.

John Norman, a free negro, and Molly, slave of Mrs Mary Muse, were brought up for fighting and disturbing the peace on 2d street, near the new Alms-House. The testimony showed Norman to be in fault, and he therefore received an order entitling him to receive a thrashing.
