--A board of army surgeons was yesterday convened at Castle Thunder to examine into the sanity of Sergeant-Maj. Staples, of the 32d Va. battalion, who is now confined in the Castle on the charge of desertion. We learn that Staples's movements, both before and since his committal to the Castle, have been such as to raise a question as to his sanity. The decision of the board has not been made known.
