YANKEE PRISONERS. - One
thousand five hundred and fifty two Yankee prisoners were registered at the
Libby prison on Sunday afternoon and yesterday. Among the number were
fifty-eight officers and one chaplain. They were the results of the different
engagements which have occurred between the opposing forces around Petersburg
and Richmond, for the past day or two.
Eleven hundred and fourteen
were sent to Salisbury, North Carolina, yesterday, in order to make room for
other prisoners expected to arrive here.
