A Citizen of Petersburg captured by the enemy.

--Captain Charles Ledbetter, of this city, was taken prisoner by the Yankees a day or two since, below the Confederate lines, and carried off to close confinement. In obedience to the urgent request of one or two friends, the Captain had agreed to go down the river a little distance to transact some important business, and while in the act of so doing, he was confronted and seized by Yankee pickets and hurried away. Two or three other persons in company with him at the time, were likewise taken prisoners. Among them was Mr. James Lucas, Confederate postmaster at Brandon Church.--Petersburg Express, 16th.
