Flag of Truce – The Federal flag of truce steamer New York, arrived at Varina, on James river, last night, bringing up from Fortress Monroe fifteen citizen prisoners and five ladies. There were also on board two tons of mail matter, the accumulations of the last three months. Commissioner Ould left this city yesterday morning to communicate with Maj Mulford, but had not returned at a late hour in the afternoon, and it therefore not known whether any arrangement has yet been made for the resumption of the exchange of prisoners between the Confederate and Northern Governments.
