Flag of truce.

--A Federal flag of truce boat arrived at Varina on Saturday last, having on board thirty-two Confederate officers, who have since reached this city.

Yesterday morning one thousand and twelve Yankee prisoners, confined for some time at the Libby, were sent North, to exchange for a like number of Confederates. Among the lot were nine officers, selected as hostages, but who have since been released, in accordance with a similar treatment on the part of the Federal Government towards some of our own officers who were formerly under sentence.
