W.F. Sandford, W.R. Covington, and Thos. Woodard were delivered at City Point on the 1st instant, and are at 
Poplar Lawn Hospital, Petersburg. Mr. Sandford writes thus to the "Spirit of the Age":

It will be gratifying to the families of the following named prisoners who are now at Fort Delaware, to learn 
of their whereabouts. I will mention those from Capt. B.F. Little's Company, from Richmond County, belonging 
to the 52nd Regiment:

"Serg't John H. Nichols, Serg't R. F. Gibson, Corp'l Sam'l C. Crouch, Corp'l J.V. Wade, Privates D.W. Baldwin, 
M. Baldwin, Calvin Shepherd, W.S. Roper, J. Stricklin, W. Moore, G.H. Harvell, Anderson Driggers, R. C. Webb, 
John Webb, John Hasty, and R. James Powell, of Gen. Pettigrew's staff.

"I cannot tell where the following named prisoners are. They were wounded and sent to some other place: 
*Capt. B.F. Little, Lieut M.R. McDonald, Privates S.C. McDonald, J.B. Hinson, James Mann.

We have received, to late for today's paper, two communications warmly recommending Capt. B.F. Little for the House
of Commons in the next legislature. Captain Little was a member of the House before the war, has since lost an arm,
(in the battle of Gettysburg,) and has just returned home from a long imprisonment on Johnson's Island.
