Flag of truce. --The Federal steamer John A. Warner reached Aiken's Landing, on James river, yesterday, where she awaits the arrival of some five or six hundred paroled prisoners, who, it is expected, will be sent from Richmond to-day. Mr. Wood, the agent for the exchange of Union prisoners, was expected in this city yesterday evening, from North Carolina whither he had gone to examine into the condition and number of so-called Union men in the prison at Salisbury and other places. If Mr. Wood arrives in time, it is the intention of our authorities to send off with the Yankee soldiers to-day over one hundred of the citizen prisoners held in confinement here. The last lot of Yankee soldiers received from the South were in a very destitute condition, both physically and outwardly. Seven hundred more, expected yesterday at 12 o'clock, had not arrived up to 6 o'clock last night, though a guard had been kept at the cars waiting for them.
