Two members of the Vermont cavalry, Augustus I. Newland and Pierce St. George, arrived here from Richmond by flag of truce, on the 29th of Oct., who have since died, the former on the 5th Nov., and the latter Oct. 30th. They stated that starvation and exposure to the cold caused their illness, which was not doubted by the surgeons of this hospital.
