Arrival of Surgeons.

The flag of truce boat on Saturday last brought Drs. Freeman and Gibbes, who were captured June 17th, on the C. S. steamer Atlanta, in the engagement of Warsaw Sound, Georgia. They have been last confined at Fort Warren, Boston harbor, having been removed there four months since from Fort Lafayette, New York. In the last general exchange of Surgeons they were over looked, but our authorities here made a demand for them, and they were brought from Fort Warren on the 7th, and arrived at City Point in the U. S., flag of truce boat New York on Friday last, and thence came hither on C. S. flag of truce boat Roanoke on Saturday last. The other officers of the Atlanta were well. First Assistant Engineer E. J. Johnston died on October 14th, and is buried outside the wall. His brother officers have had a substantial marble tomb placed on the spot where his remains rest.
