More prisoners sent South.
--Another party of Bull Runners, numbering, 159, were marched up Main street from the prisons yesterday afternoon, and went South by way of Petersburg
Their destination is Columbia
, S. C.
--They were guarded by 56 men of the Charlotte Greys
, under comment of Thomas S. Henry
The appearance of the prisoners in public occasioned little sensation, as our people have become accustomed to such scenes.
Some few of the men were without hate or shoes, though the majority of them looked as well as could be expected after a confinement of two or three months. Their departure was very quiet, and the small crowd at the depot let them go without using any decisive remarks in their hearing.
We hope the authorities will make speedy arrangements to send off another gang, for there are still more in the Richmond prisons
than the public good requires.
