From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/7/1862, p. 2, c. 2

Hessians. Only thirty prisoners of war arrived here on yesterday from below, though seemingly reliable authority put the number en route hither in squads of four and five hundred at about 4,000 men. Some of these latter were said to be not a great way below the city, and if this be so, they may be expected to arrive to-day.
