The health of the department is good, and with the precautions taken, and the lateness of the season, I apprehend no cases of yellow fever, even with the intercourse by flags of truce. Eight officers of the U. S. Army, escaped prisoners from Columbia, arrived here to- day.

Very resentfully, your obedient servant,

J. G. FOSTER,

Major- General, Commanding.
