From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/21/1862

There have been very few Yankees received at the C. S. Prison during the present week. Some half dozen stragglers from McClellan's late grand invading army were seized a few days since in the vicinity of Harrison's Landing, and brought to Richmond on Tuesday. The prison now contains about 500 men. It has not yet been settled when the next lot will be sent from Belle Isle to Varina, to be exchanged, though the time cannot be far distant, as there is no reason for delay.
