Federal prisoners.

--There are now, including Pope's officers, and free negroes, some three hundred and sixty Federal prisoners confined at the Libby prison. This number may be materially reduced in a few days by the sending home of all those able to bear removal. In the last batch sent off were included seven of the so-called citizens of Washington, or Department clerks, captured at the last battle of Manassas, who made their appearance on that field for the pretended purpose of attending to the wounded, but in reality to gloat over the presumed defeat of the Confederate soldiers engaged in that memorable contest.
