Confederate prisoners at Sandusky, Ohio.

A gentleman just arrived from the depot of the prisoners of war, near Sandusky, Ohio, where the Yankees hold some 1,000 of our men in captivity, reports them all in fine health and spirits, and anxious for an exchange, their determination being to embark their fortunes again in the cause of the South. It is understood that they will be sent to Vicksburg for exchange. So far as our observation has extended, the ardor of our returned soldiers has increased, rather than diminished, by their temporary residence among the Yankees. On the contrary, many of the prisoners who have left Richmond lately for the North, have remarked that the Lincoln Government had virtually acknowledged the independence of the South in agreeing to the cartel of exchange, and as they had only fought heretofore for the restoration of the Union, they would take their places in the ranks no more, unless under compulsion.
