The Yankee wounded. --Eight hundred were sent off yesterday morning at an early hour via Petersburg Railroad. On the happening of another similar exodus, all the wounded remaining in the different factories, will be concentrated at Libby's warehouse, when the cleaning out process will be repeated till all are gotten rid of. It was intended yesterday to remove from Belle Isle to Libby's building fifty very sick men, the hospital accommodations on the island being very small. There remain in this city but a corporal's guard of the hundred or two wounded Federal officers that fell into our hands after the recent battles before Richmond. In a few days all of the wounded Yankees will have been removed, when the authorities will devote themselves to the task of getting rid of the well ones.
Enjoying themselves. --The Yankee prisoners now encamped on Belle Isle seem determined to "make the most of a bad job," and to enjoy themselves in the best fashion possible. The majority of them are quartered in tents, and between and among these, in various places, they have dug wells, either for the purpose of obtaining better water than is afforded by the muddy bed of the river or to bathe in. They are permitted to go in the river by the dozen, and there is hardly a moment in the day that squads are not viewing with the rocks in disturbing the equanimity of the "noble James." The island is approached by a boat starting from near the Tredegar Foundry; but few persons are allowed access, save those called thither by official duties.
