An Incident. About the time Gen. Banks left the Valley to evade the hot pursuit of "Stonewall" Jackson, three Yankees went to the farm of Mr. Crane Sheriff of Jefferson county, and demanded a favorites horse. Mr. C. refused to comply with the demand, when the thieves went to the stable and took the horse out, but that gentleman, determined not to surrender his horse without a struggle, shot one of the marandors, wounding him severely.--The other two left the premises hurriedly, but soon returned strongly reinforced, and after capturing Mr. Crane, fired his barn, containing about 1,200 bushels of wheat, and his corn-crib with 200 barrels of corn.

The Federal officers --Preparations are being made to send off all of the Federal officers at present in confinement here. The next flag of truce from here will probably relieve us of the presence of all these worthies.

Arrival of prisoners from Pope's army. --The Central train that arrived at 4 o'clock yesterday morning brought to this city three hundred and three of Pope's Hessians, captured on Saturday, near Southwest Mountain, by the advance forces of Gen Jackson's army. Accompanying the above were Brig-Gen. H. Prince, a Yankee General, and twenty seven commissioned officers, who, together with the men, were lodged in the Libby Prison. Prince, for a few hours, was lodged at the Exchange Hotel. The President's recent proclamation declared Pope and his commissioned satellites to be without the usages of warfare, and not entitled to the privileges of ordinary prisoners of war Orders were issued to place all of the captured officers in close confinement. At the Libby Prison they were put with the deserters and other persons to whom infamy attaches. An examination was made into the condition of the county jail, with a view to their incarceration there; but the structure was deemed unsafe.
