The Daily Dispatch: May 3, 1864., [Electronic resource], Reported Sinking of two Yankee gunboats by the Florida. (search)
Capture of an "Iron-Clad." --The statement published some days since that Tim Morris, alias Joe Griffin, one of the "Iron-Clad" Opera Troupe, which for a few weeks past were giving exhibitions at Metropolitan Hall, but have since been broken up in consequence of the descent made upon them by the conscript gatherers, had succeeded in reaching the Federal lines, turns out to be incorrect. The "iron-clad" was boarded and captured by the Confederate detectives in the foretop of a house on 25turn their prisoner loose. By quickening their pace, however, and vigorously brandishing several heavy clubs, the viragoes were made to give up the assault and sulkily retrace their steps to the shelter from which they had so furiously sallied forth. Morris, alias Griffin, denies having even been out of the city, and avers that, while he has kept pretty closely within doors during the day time, yet at night he has frequently aired himself on the streets. He was committed to Castle Thunder.
