The Daily Dispatch: November 15, 1861., [Electronic resource], Unionism in the
Arrival of prisoners. --The Danville train yesterday brought in 45 prisoners, in custody of Captain Phelps, of Floyd's cavalry, and a guard of eleven men. These prisoners are all Virginia Unionists, except two Ohio soldiers. They were captured by our cavalry in Wayne, Kanawha, Boone, and Raleigh counties, on the 24th of October, while they were holding an election under the bogus Government of Wheeling. The poll-books, lists of voters, &c., were also secured. The whole number of prisoners taken was 58, of whom 8 were shot as deserters from our camps, and five others, who had taken the oath of allegiance to the Confederacy, and were found with poll-books in their hands, were left behind to be tried for treason. As a general thing, this party have a more respectable appearance than the majority of their stripe now in our prisons, but there are some hard looking customers amongst them.
From the army of the Kanawha. --The Norfolk Day Book, of yesterday, publishes the following extract of a letter received in that city: Raleigh C. H., Va., Nov. 4th, 1861. I have just returned from another scout which proved successful to us. We killed several of the enemy, and took 15 prisoners, with many valuable horses. We visited several Union houses during the scout, and I laid in a large stock of bed quilts, woolen counterpanes, blankets, and other necessary articles. I will not suffer for bed-clothing during the winter. I think that our whole force will be in Charleston in a week or two. I understand that Floyd killed and captured about 1,000 Yankees on yesterday — a pretty good haul for this late season.
