Yankee civilians

captured, acting in conjunction with their grand army, do not receive the backlit of the exchange recently agreed on between the two Governments, ours having determined to hold on to them as hostages, in consequence of the infamous orders of Pope and Steinwehr. S. S. Mann, a very intelligent Yankee, the sutler of the 16th Massachusetts, captured in the brilliant cavalry dash made by Gen. Stuart, has been paroled for sixty days to go North and negotiate an exchange of himself for Judge Geo. W. Thompson, a citizen of Wheeling, recently seized by the Yankees for disloyalty, and a Yankee sutler named Everlith, now here, for Samuel Price, Esq, a leading lawyer of Greenbrier, member of the late Convention, seized by the Yankees during one of their recent raids in that vicinity. The son of Mann, (who is a wealthy citizen of Boston,) now also here, will be offered in exchange for Mr. Lyon, a son-in-law of Mr. Norris, a leading lawyer of Baltimore, who fled from that place to escape the clutches of Lincoln Myrmidons. Lyon, his son-in-law, was not so fortunate. Doubtless, as Mr. Mann, the Yankee sutler, has position, money, and influence at home, he will succeed in his undertaking.
