From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/14/1862, p. 1, c. 6

Arrival of Another Batch of Pope's Men. - The Central train that arrived at 1 o'clock on Tuesday night brought, amongst other passengers, four commissioned officers and one hundred and twenty-one privates belonging to Pope's army, captured by Gen. Jackson last Saturday. The latter were sent to Belle Isle as prisoners of war. The officers were placed with the others belonging to Pope's army, in separate confinement, not being considered, under the terms of President Davis's recent proclamation, as entitled to the usual treatment of prisoners of war. More prisoners of the above sort are reported on their way to Richmond.
