Ominous State of Affairs in Washington.

Among the exchanged prisoners who arrived here yesterday, was Lt. M. Newman, Adjutant of the 19th Georgia regiment. We are indebted to his courtesy for late Northern papers. Lt., N. states that it was rumored in the prison that great excitement had been caused by the President's emancipation proclamation, and it was further said that several Federal officers had been sent to the Old Capitol prison for treasonable remarks about not intending to fight for the ‘ "nigger."’ The night before our exchanged prisoners left the prison doors were all locked, something which had not been done before, and which betokened some unusual commotion outside.
