Major-General.

HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF NORFOLK,

Norfolk, Va., January 18, 1862.

Major General J. E. WOOL,

Commanding Department of Virginia.

GENERAL: I received last evening your letter of the 17th instant and the prisoners named by you also arrived here.

1. Colonel O. B. Willcox has been selected by lot as a hostage to be treated exactly as your Government treats our citizens captured on the ocean. He is therefore not a subjec of exchange.

2. Captain Tansill whom you offer to exchange for Captain Z. R. Bliss, U. S. Army, has already been exchanged for Captain Manson, Seventy-ninth New York Regiment of Volunteers, and the exchange accepted by your letter of the 16th instant, an extract of which is inclosed.

I also send you an extract+ of my letter to you December 31 proposing exchanges, and the remark that Lieutenant Tattnall, late of the U. S. Marine Corps, has not yet arrived. You are authorized to release Captain Manson from his parole and I shall notify Captain Tansill that he is released from his.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

BENJ. HUGER,

Major-General.
