July 18, 1863
Arrested. – Yesterday the United States Marshal arrested Michael Quinlan, who has just returned from the rebel army, and committed him to jail. He was soon afterwards, however, released by Commissioner Forbes upon two thousand dollars bail to answer an indictment for treason before the Federal Court.
Quinlan left this city with the Shriver Greys and served, we believe, many months with Stonewall Jackson’s command. Recently his health failed him and he was discharged from the army, being no longer able to stand the fatigues of the life which soldiers are compelled to lead. He returned to this city a few days ago and having been indicted for treason was arrested upon a capias.
