ARRIVAL OF WOUNDED NEGROES. - Twenty-odd of Burnside's negro troops, who were
wounded in an engagement a few days since near Petersburg and fell into our
hands, were brought to this city yesterday afternoon. Their wounds are generally
of the worst character. They were sent to the hospital connected with Castle
Thunder. Those of the negro prisoners who were not wounded have been sent to
Salisbury, North Carolina.
