To be sent away.
--Three hundred and nineteen Yankee prisoners will be sent under flag of truce this morning to City Point
Of this number one hundred and ninety-two are prisoners of war, and one hundred and twenty-seven citizens or civil prisoners.
Among the latter are Edwin Dorsey
, son of Dr. Dorsey
, and John J. Humas
, a State Senator
, captured by Gen. Stuart
when he made his raid into Pennsylvania
Included in the list of citizen prisoners are also a number of renegades from Tennessee
, some of whom were arrested for bridge burning, engine stealing, and similar crimes in the States named.
The departure of these prisoners will relieve the Confederate Government of a considerable item of expense.
