--Up to 5 o'clock yesterday evening, captured Yankees had been received in the C. S. Prison here as part of the results of the battles of Saturday and Sunday. It is a sad commentary on the war to think that for the war hiese carcase of each one of these vile scoundrels perhaps the life of a Southern tartlet and gentleman was offered up on the bloody after which fanaticism and fiendish have has reared in our land. They each and ail, disserve the batter as any thieve, or murderers that have fallen victims to the majesty of an offended law. The following is a list of the officers captured with the precious crew above referred to end brought here George C Speer. Lieut Col 31st Penn George S Smith. M do Geo W Dorson. Capt Co C. d.
