--The sick soldiers from the Peninsula
arrived in this city yesterday by the York River
We are informed that they were subjected to much suffering at West Point
on the previous night, for want of food and shelter.
Two of them, who reside some five miles from Richmond
, are reported to have started for their homes on foot, but were arrested as "suspicious characters" near Tun stall's depots and brought here as prisoners.--This is a rather strange proceeding if the facts, are as represented.
A few more sick soldiers, came down from Mahassa by the Central House
