Escape of prisoners.
--Three prisoners, incarcerated by order of the Government
, effected their escape from the jail of Henrico county
on Wednesday night last, by working a hole through the wall of their cell, and letting themselves down to the yard, whence it was a comparatively easy matter to get into the street.
One of them is George W. Twalls
, formerly a lieutenant in the Ben McCulloch Rangers
, arrested on suspicion of disloyalty to the South
; another is O. C. Stanton
, a native of a Northern State; and the other 3d Sergeant Lawson
, lately in the Confederate
service on the Peninsula
Up to the present time they have eluded arrest, and are probably endeavoring to make their way to the enemy's lines.
