Confederate Prisoners at Fort M'Henry

The number of Confederate prisoners brought to this city during the week was 6,411, including about 400 officers of different ranks. A large number of them were placed temporarily in Fort McHenry, and subsequently sent to Fort Delaware and other places.

Among the prisoners brought to the fort on Thursday was W. Carvel Hall, formerly of this city, Major and Assistant Adjutant General on Major Gen. Trimble's staff, who together with Charles E. Grogan, aid-de-camp to Gen. Trimble, and Trimble himself, were captured near Gettysburg. Gen. Trimble was severely wounded, and has had his left leg amputated below the knee. He will also probably be brought to this place. He is now at the farm house of Mr. Daniel Wuster, near Gettysburg. He and his staff signed paroles, one of which, that of Major Hall, has been revoked by Major Gen. Schenck.

It is stated by some of the prisoners that the 1st Maryland (Confederate) infantry battalion -- composed principally of Baltimoreans -- suffered very severely in the late battles. The battalion went into battle with 500 men, and returned with 100 left. Lieut Col. James R. Herbert was mortally and Major Goldsborough slightly wounded, and Capt. W. H. Murray and Robert H. Cushing were killed. Capt. Emack, of Co. B, was badly wounded, and is perhaps a prisoner. Lieut. J.B. Wright, of this city, adjutant 23d N.C., was killed, also W.T. Magruder, of General Davis's staff.
