The Female Surgeon.

--A letter dated "Castle Thunder," Richmond, has been received by the mother of Miss Dr. Mary Walker, from which it appears that the Surgeon bears her imprisonment lightly. The following is an extract from her letter:

"I hope that you are not grieving about me because I am a prisoner of war. I am living in a three story brick castle, with plenty to eat and a clean bed to sleep in. I have a room mate; a young lady of about 20 years of age, from near Corinth, Miss, (Miss Martha Manual.) I am much happier than I might be in some relations of life where I might be envied by other ladies. The officers are gentlemanly and kind, and it will not be long before I am exchanged. --Penkes Paper.
