From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/11/1862

Arrived. – About twenty-five hundred Yankees, captured at various times by Stonewall Jackson in the Valley of Virginia, and hitherto confined near Lynchburg, Va., have arrived in Richmond since Saturday. They are now on Belle Island, and will there remain until preparation can be made to send them home under flag of truce. Directly all the privates have been shipped the Federal officers will be sent off.
