Return of captured wagons.

After the surrender of Harper's Ferry a number of the wagons captured from the enemy were loaned to the paroled Federal officers, with which to convey away their private baggage. These wagons were returned to Gen. Lee about ten days since, having been sent through by flag of truce from Harper's Ferry. Many of them were in a decidedly dilapidated condition, and indicated, as well as the horses attached to them, that they had received rough usage since they became the property of the Confederacy.
