Arrival of paroled Confederate soldiers.

--Four Yankee steamboats arrived at Aikin's Landing Sunday, bringing about 2,500 of our men, captured by the Yankees and paroled as prisoners of war. Most of them, before they were started southward, had been taken to that detestable place, Fort Delaware, where they received treatment more like brutes than men. Yesterday a large train, loaded down with rations, ready prepared for eating, were sent to Aikin's to relieve the necessities of these brave men. They had been so badly treated by their inhuman captors, but few were in condition to make a speedy journey to this city. The greater portion of the returned captives will arrive in this city to- day.
