Confederate Memoranda on arrest of Caleb N. Stevenson, Guyandotte, Virginia.

Caleb N. Stevenson.-Born in Cabell County, Va., now Wayne; lives six miles and a half from Guyandotte. Was arrested by Capt. Vincent Witcher's company; for what he does not know. Voted for the Union because he was told it would keep war out of Virginia, but when Virginia went out of the Union he went with her. Had nothing to do with the Northern army or their friends. Staid close at home to keep out of their way. Ready to take the oath of allegiance. Mr. Laidly, delegate from Cabell, says prisoner is an ignorant, obscure man, but honest, and has kept himself very quiet in the disturbances in that county. Says Captain Witcher's company is one of independent scouts and are supposed to be indiscriminate in their arrests. I recommend this man be discharged on taking the oath of allegiance.
