RETURNED. – Captain G. W. Alexander, Assistant Provost Marshal of the Eastern District, has returned to his post in command of Castle Thunder, after a brief but eventful trip to Fredericksburg, whither he repaired with a company of picked men from the two military prisons, upon the opening of the ball in that quarter.
