Sent North

--On Saturday evening a flag of truce left this city in charge of Lieut Borstens, carrying off 402 Abolition prisoners of war. On arriving at City Point they were placed on board the Yankee steamboat "State of Maine" which had been sent to the Point for that purpose. One Yankee officer, Lieut Suck, who had been permanently disabled by the loss of a leg in the battle of Cross Keys, was permitted to go North on the occasion. The "State of Maine" brought to City Point twelve C. S. Army Surgeons, one private, and the body of an officer, a relative of Hon. W. H. Macfarland, killed in the battle of Sharpsburg. To-day week the Yankee captain of the boat said he would return with a large number of Southern citizens, heretofore detained in the North.
