Gone. According to announcement, the commissioned officers of Pope's army were sent away at 7 o'clock yesterday morning, in the direction of Varina, the landing on James river below this city. The whole number, including citizens of Washington held as prisoners of war and others, amounted to one hundred and fifty. Nearly the whole party went off in conveyances provided for the purpose, and judging from their countenances were not at all displeased at being allowed the opportunity of rejoining their abolition confreres at Washington. A number of Pope's officers were fine looking men, physically speaking, but the majority had that hang-dog look that would peculiarly fit them for association with such a character as their late leader proved himself to be.
