Memoranda on arrest of Thomas McDonough.

Thomas McDonough.-Born in Philadelphia; lived in Boston seven years; returned to Philadelphia. I October, 1860, he came South. Worked in Wilmington, N. C., eight months. Left Wilmington in July last. Says he traveled on foot. Went to Raleigh; thence came to Petersburg and Richmond; thence attempted to go to Baltimore. Was arrested and imprisoned at Frederick and was released. He then attempted to get to Baltimore and was taken at Dumfries and sent here. Says he was in search of work. Will not take the oath of allegiance. I think he should be held as a prisoner.
