We are permitted to publish the following extract from a letter received by Mr.Thomas Ross, of Brandon--From the 7th Regiment.
Apalachicola Arsenal; Chattahoochie, Fla.
Dear Brother--Do not be surprised to receive a letter from "Dixie".The fortunes of war have changed "my base of operations", and I am a prisoner for the first time during the war. Capt. Galloway, of the First Florida Cavalry, myself, and eleven enlisted men of Co.B., 7th Vermont, were captured in Washington County, West Florida, near Chockiahatchie Bay on the 10th of this month. Since then we have been for the greater part of the time confined here.
Below are the names of the men captured with me:
We are receiving the best of treatment, and enjoying good health. How long we will remain here we do not know, but letters may be directed to us at this place, and if we leave will try and make arrangements to have them forwarded to us.
Your Affectionate Brother
