Arrival of wounded Confederate soldiers. --One hundred and forty wounded Confederate soldiers were brought to Richmond from Varina yesterday partly in the little steamer Sea Bird, and partly in a canal boat towed by the Sea Bird. On their arrival in Richmond the men were distributed in the different hospitals, and appropriately cared for.--From the representations made, some of the men must have suffered considerable by being detained at the landing since Sunday morning. There does not exbeing detained at the landing since Sunday morning. There does not exist at Varina any means for the suitable accommodation of such of the soldiers as may be brought there wounded. Some eight or more tents are stretched along the shore of the river, but these barely suffice for the guard, for whose use they were put up. Persons conversant with the subject are of opinion that temporary quarters at least should be provided for the wounded and disabled, who must otherwise inevitably suffer much.
