An Escaped prisoner. We had an interview on Saturday with Mr. Wm. H. Wilson, of the 28th Virginia regiment, who recently made his escape from Castle Williams, on Governor's Island, New York. He was captured by the Yankees at the battle of Williamsburg, and immediately paroled for three weeks to wait upon the Confederate wounded. At the expiration of this time he was sent under guard to Fortress Monroe, and transferred thence to Governor's Island. Among his observations while there was the fact that the prisoners taken by Gen. Van Dorn at an early period of the war, and subsequently released, are performing guard duty at Castle Williams, thus virtually violating the conditions of their parole Mr. W. effected his escape on the 22d of June, in a manner which it is not necessary to state. After remaining for a short time in New York, he proceeded to Philadelphia, where, by adroit representations, he borrowed a sum of money from a Union man, and in due time reached Baltimore. In
