Many of the articles captured were Isbelled ‘"Christmas
presents for Gen. Burnside
,"’ and consisted of fine brandies, cigars, and wines, and indeed everything calculated to elevate the fallen spirits of the Yankee
Besides these there was a good supply of sutter's stores, embracing boots and shoes, gauntlets, and nearly every other article necessary for the comfort of man during the cold season.
In addition, one hundred and seventy Yankees who were guarding the train were made prisoners, and arrived in this city yesterday.
