From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/7/1862, p. 1, c. 3

Flag of Truce. – It is contemplated by General Winder to send off to day 120 Yankee soldiers of those lately arrived, including the military portion of the crowd lately captured with the railway train near Manassas. They will be dispatched to Varina about 12 o'clock to day. The 160 men and officers of the 54th Pennsylvania regiment, captured by Col. Imboden's cavalry, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, are still held as hostages for the safe return of certain of our men held by the enemy who they pretend to regard as outlaws because they belonged to partisan ranger corps.
