KNOCKED DOWN AND ROBBED. – Wednesday night, Jeremiah Murphy, Twelfth United States Regulars, visited the camp of the Eleventh regiment, at Camp Winder, where he was knocked down and robbed of his pocket-book, containing about $100 in greenbacks, and a draft for a [illegible] more, with sundry papers. Murphy had previously received a wound in the arm at Camp Jackson, which disabled him, and he was thus prevented from making effectual resistance against the garroters. The draft, which was on the First National Bank of Richmond, was stopped before business hours.
