The enemies' wounded. --Nearly six hundred wounded Yankees were dispatched homewards Saturday morning. One of them died on the cars between Richmond and Petersburg, and his body was left in the latter city for burial. Three more died between Petersburg and City Point. At the latter place they were taken in charge by their friends for interment. Yesterday morning at least 500 more were sent off. There arrived yesterday morning 300 wounded men from Savage's Station attended by their nurses. It has been determined to bring all remaining there to Richmond, and dispatch them from this point. It is hardly probable that any will be sent on to-day. None of the factories are now tenanted by Yankees, but Talbott & Bonnts, on 18th street, which contains the officers Libby's buildings will soon be emptied of their wounded.
The flag of truce. The wounded and sick prisoners of war, released on parole, and carried from Richmond to City Point on Friday, were placed on board the hospital steamers State of Maine, Kennebec, and Commodore, at a late hour the same evening. One of the four who died on the passage down was received on board as a paroled prisoner, and the remaining three were sent back to be interred in the soil which they came to desolate. Our officers were politely treated by the Federals during their sojourn at City Point, and handsomely entertained at the tables of the steamers. The only person who seemed disposed to indulge in any tirade against the South was a strong- minded female, acting in the capacity of a nurse, who, as our informant expresses it, was "nearly as tall as a lamp-post and loquacious as a magpie." A good view of McClellan's camp was obtained through a spy-glass from the Point, but no movement of importance was observable. Very few of the enemy's vessels were in sight
urchasing substitutes at high prices. Richmond, apart from the military, is described as presenting a very dull and gloomy appearance, as if the whole city was in mourning — houses are closed, but few windows are seen open, and little or no life visible in any direction except the usual military routine. The streets, however, are full of rough, uncouth looking soldiers of a bold, ferocious, and brigandine appearance. On leaving Richmond, Dr. Fox, with a number of others, was taken to City Point in a large number of ambulances, and transported from thence on board the steamer Louisiana, which vessels came up under a flag of truce to receive them. They were taken down the river to McClellan's army, and from thence to Fortress Monroe, on their way North. Letter from Gen. M'Call. Thomas A. Biddle, of Philadelphia, has received the following letter from Gen. McCall: Richmond, Va. Tobacco House Prison, July 9, 1862. My Dear Sir: I enclose you herewith a note from
