The march of the Yankee prisoners bound for New Orleans through our streets on Saturday was really a fine spectacle. Paraded in ranks of some half a dozen men each, both ends of each rank flanked by a Confederate soldier, with a platoon of Confederate guards in front, and another in the rear of the body, the prisoners and their escort presented quite a martial appearance, and attracted much attention.
