Our prisoners at Fort Delaware.

We learn by the last flag of truce that Captains Richard E. Frayser, B. H. Smith and Charles R. Skinker, and Lieutenant Charles Williams, prisoners of war at Fort Delaware, are in good health, and bearing their captivity cheerfully, notwithstanding the heat of the weather and the circumstances by which they are surrounded. The following officers of the Forty-second regiment Virginia infantry, captured on the 12th of May, are also prisoners at Fort Delaware, and well: Captains A. Dobyus, O. W. Sprigs and James Helm; Lieutenants David W. Garrett, J. Arrington, Thomas Mitchell, Jerry Moorman, W. Hatcher, P. W. Dalton, A. R. Angel and Jesse Child.
