Castle Thunder items

--Henry Swalmeyer, member of company A, 15th Virginia regiment, was arrested yesterday afternoon by the Confederate detectives, and looked up in Castle Thunder. Swalmeyer has been absent from his company over twelve months, and it is believed has been in the city the most of the time. He was a resident of Richmond at the time he entered the service, and was formerly engaged in mercantile pursuits here. When arrested he was in the neighborhood of his residence, and gave the detectives a pretty good run before they could catch him.

William Wright, slave of Robert Lane, of King and Queen, and Jim Johnson, slave of Dr. Maye, of Powhatan, were arrested by detectives Weathersford and Reese yesterday, charged with stealing a large lot of blankets, sheets, &c., from the C S Medical Purveyor's store. The stolen articles were found in a room occupied by these negroes, and in their trunks were found upwards of sixty keys of various descriptions.
