The Daily Dispatch: June 26, 1861., [Electronic resource], Judge Parker's charge to the Grand Jury of Frederick county, Va. (search)
In addition to the above, the reporter is informed by Mr. Alfred Inloes, formerly Alderman for Jefferson Ward, that E. H. Craige, the Richmond agent of the pestiferous creatures above named, has been at least one time before Mayor Mayo, on suspicion of hostility to the South. The reporter does not know Mr. Craige's sentiments, but he thinks he would bear being carried before the Mayor once more. Let the authorities of the Confederate Government confiscate the sewing machines owned by Wheeler & Wilson in Craige's keeping, as contraband of war. The reporter does not know Mr. Craige personally, and therefore cannot be accused of wishing to injure him socially or in his business relations.

The arrest was made on the affidavit of Mr. John W. Davies, of this city, on a charge of hostility to the South, and giving aid to the U. S. Government. Mr. Davies and several others appeared as witnesses for the Commonwealth, but failed to prove anything at alsiness, and often goes North to buy goods. To this latter fact and the reports in circulation that the manufacturers of his machines had given a flag to some New York company, we attribute his arrest. We are now perfectly satisfied as to what Mr. Craige's sentiments are, and are pleased to know that he is honorably acquitted. We will also state in this connection, that we have it from good authority that the Wheeler & Wilson Manufacturing Company did not give the flag, as reported; it was
