More Particularly to be observed.

--Gen. Winder has ordered that hereafter the descriptive list of Yankee prisoners paroled by us shall contain their names in alphabetical order, state their rank, age, color of hair, eyes, and complexion, number of feet and inches high, regiment and State, former trade or profession, and remarks on same. Heretofore only name, rank, and regiment have been inserted. No doubt it has been found necessary to use additional caution because a good many of the Yankees, on being released, have proved oblivious of the obligations imposed on them by the terms of the parole. Preparations are now being made to send of 2000 prisoners, and they will be dispatched as soon as descriptive lists can be prepared. Included in this number will be fifty five Federal officers, not belonging to Pope's army, and who, by the terms of the late cartel, are considered prisoners of war.
