The Daily Dispatch: October 2, 1863., [Electronic resource], An attempt to discover a murderer by photography. (search)
John Welsh, a member of Capt. Rogers's cavalry, rode the horse to this city, and was arrested. Welsh proved in his trial that he borrowed the horse at camp in Charles City, and he was therefore discharged. Yesterday it was proved that the prisoners carried the horse to Rogers's camp, and claimed it. As the theft was committed in New Kent county, and the horse was taken to Charles City, the Mayor decided that the thieves must be tried in one or the other of those counties, and therefore determined to send them down, unless he could discover some law, lately passed, giving the Courts of Richmond jurisdiction over the matter. Neither the jail of New Kent obe tried in one or the other of those counties, and therefore determined to send them down, unless he could discover some law, lately passed, giving the Courts of Richmond jurisdiction over the matter. Neither the jail of New Kent or Charles City are safe prison-houses at this time, owing to their proximity to the Yankee lines.
