--Five hundred and thirty-five Yankee soldiers were sent yesterday, about 11 o'clock to Varina, under a flag of truce, to be exchanged. There were none at privates in the above whom posed exceedingly dilapidated, more as in fact, than any parcel we have seen dispatched from this place. Some twenty-five or thirty vehicles were brought into requisition to transport those who were unable to walk. The party after their arrival at Varina, embarked on board the steamer John A. Warner for Fortress Monroe. Another flag of truce will start in a few days.
