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.
ir Northern followers go; and we have thus the prospect fairly before us of a more harmonious and effective union of all parties in the loyal States for vigorous war than at any time since their first grand spontaneous uprising with the rebel bombardment of Fort Sumter. Arrival of Henry S. Foote in Washington. Henry S. Foote arrived in Baltimore, from Washington, on the 7th, under charge of Major Newhall, of Sheridan's command; and, after breakfasting at the Eutaw House, was carried North--it is supposed to Fort Warren. The Washington Star, speaking of his arrival in that city, says: The rebel Senator Henry S. Foote came down from Berlin by the train last night under guard. Mr. Foote has been at General Devin's headquarters at Lovettsville, Loudoun county, for a week or ten days, and yesterday, accompanied by an officer of General Devin's staff, he crossed the river and took the train at Berlin. Owing to an accident, the train was several hours behind time, and he an
es us reason to hope that the most valuable portion had been gotten away in safety. We had there, it seems, a quantity of medical stores, one half of which were brought off, the rest destroyed by our authorities, their removal being found impracticable. It was reported on Saturday that the Treasury Note Lithograph Establishment had been left behind. This the Treasury authorities here state to be incorrect.--They state that the whole establishment, plates, paper and furniture, were brought North thirty-six hours before the occupation of the place by the Yankees.--The female employees in the Treasury Department, as we stated on Saturday, got off to Charlotte, North Carolina, several days before the advent of Sherman. Some of them, whose homes are here, have arrived in this city. Most of them, we understand, saved their baggage, but lost their furniture. It will be recollected that when Mr. Memminger, then Secretary of the Treasury, carried these ladies to South Carolina for safety
tton- hole, away in some corner, or where they are certain that we are all Northern men, and tell how they have always been true to the Union. They are afraid to fling out the flag; afraid to rejoice openly with us; afraid to say that their soul is their own — which, indeed, is doubtful. But the negroes cheer us, bless us, dance for joy when they see our glorious flag — pray for us, fight for us, "can't love us enough," as they beautifully express it. The negroes may be an inferior race up North, but not down here by a good deal. The rebel families. The rebel families in Charleston are perfectly cowed. They live in terror of us. Thus far they are as well behaved as spaniels. It will depend on the administration here whether this appropriate sentiment of subordination — which they have taught is proper and necessary in an inferior race — shall continue until they repent of their iniquities, or whether (as at Huntsville, Alabama, and elsewhere,) they shall soon begin to ass
"The negroes may be an inferior race up North, but not down here by a good deal" So says the Charleston correspondent of the New York Tribune. What has made the difference? Why is it that those who have been trained in the school of freedom are inferior to those who have been trained in the school of slavery?
ppointed conductor of election in Jefferson Ward in place of R. T. Seal, whose duties as Chief-of-Police would call him elsewhere on that day. Mr. Walker said he had a subject to bring before the Council. He had understood that there were between five and six thousand women and children now in the city whose husbands, fathers and natural protectors had gone to the Yankees and left them here a burden upon the city. At this time, when the city was taxed to its utmost to support its deserving poor, he thought that this class should be removed from the city and sent North, to follow the fortunes of their kindred, and thus lessen the drain upon our supplies. He moved the appointment of a committee of three to wait upon the Secretary of War and confer with that official as to the best mode to accomplish the end in view. After some discussion, the subject was referred to a special committee, consisting of Messrs. Walker, Clopton and Epps. On motion, the Council adjourned.
