Recaptured from the enemy

--The following negroes were recaptured from the Yankees on the north side of James river by our forces yesterday morning: Reuben and Ben, slaves of William Bentley, of King William county, Virginia; and Nelson, slave of Edward Bentley, of the same county. They seem much pleased at the prospect of again being placed under the fostering care and protection of their owners.
