The Daily Dispatch: December 16, 1862., [Electronic resource], Heavy robbery of Confederate Bank notes (search)
heerfully publish the fact, and it may perhaps be a caution to intended or present visitors of a dishonest stamp to know that their brethren engaged in this outrage are now safely in irons. Fortunately for the public and the contemplated new issue of Confederate States bills, suspicion as to the parties engaged in the robbery took the right direction from the time of its discovery. The Chief of Police, before the thieves had well recovered from the first feelings of pleasure at their success, had them safely bagged, and, with the whole of their plunder, safely lodged in prison. The names of these men are Capt. Wm. M. Leake, Lt. Jesse M. Lawson alias North, W. B. King alias Williams, Eugene Horton, and as accessory to the crime, a woman named Louisa Kelly. They have undergone several examinations, and as the evidence, in addition to the recovery of the stolen bills in their possession, is most complete, there can be no reasonable doubt of their ultimate conviction and punishment.
