Escaped from Fort Delaware. Joseph Cox, a member of Capt. Atkins's company, Wheat's battalion, who was taken prisoner in a skirmish at Slabtown, in the Valley, on the 23d of last April, and who was sent to Fort Delaware, recently escaped from that prison and arrived safely in Richmond on Tuesday evening. In effecting his escape, he was at times subjected to the severest privations, and such as were well calculated to deter a less bold and determined spirit. After he had succeeded in making his exit from the prison, he immediately took to the water, and for several hours struggled with the current.

Here he remained until the 4th day of July, when he was transferred to Fort Delaware, from whence he escaped about a week after. In his escape, he was accompanied by Mr. J. A. Toole, of the 9th Virgs in the same State, but cautiously refrained from making known their situations.--When they arrived in Kent county, Maryland, they disclosed the fact that they were refugees from Fort Delaware, and found plenty of friends and sympathizers. Mr. Cox says that on the night of the 3d of July the Secessionists of Middletown, Del., hoisted a Confederate flag on a pole which had been erected by the Unionists, and that early on the morning of the 4th the "Stars and Bars" were saluted with forty r
