Going Away. – A flag of truce is expected to start for City Point to-day or to-morrow, carrying away a number of Abolition prisoners of war lately received here. Among the miscellaneous parties who are to be sent off are Mrs. Frances, D. Jamison, of New York, captured near Centreville some time since, (and since held as a spy;) Mrs. Maria Underwood, of Washington, (arrested as a suspicious character,) and Mrs. Sarah Webster, wife of the man executed some months ago as a spy. All of these parties have been, and are now, at Castle Thunder.

Two hundred and fifty Abolitionists will be sent to City Point this morning at 7½ o'clock, in charge of Lieut. Bossieux. A boat arrived at the Point on Wednesday, and is waiting there to receive them.
