Return of prisoners.

A flag of truce boat arrived at Varina on Sunday night with about two hundred wounded and sick Confederate prisoners from Boonsboro'. Dr. Ware, Assistant Surgeon of the 23d Ga. Regiment, came on with them. He informs us that while in the hospital near Boonsboro', the wounded under his charge were very kindly treated by the Federal Medical Director, Dr. Daley. The Federal soldiers, too, were very kind and several times came in and divided the contents of their haversacks with the wounded Confederates, who for the first four days depended on this source almost entirely for food. The ladies of Baltimore, to which city they were carried, were profuse in their liberality, and some of them even went out to Fort McHenry, whither the prisoners were taken before embarking for Richmond.
