Vice President Stephens, it is said, has gone to Fortress Monroe by the flag of truce boat. One story is that his business is to see about the exchange of prisoners, and another that it is to inform the Federal Government that if private property is not respected in the Confederate States, and the rules of civilized warfare strictly complied with, our forces in the North will receive instructions to retaliate in kind.
