Arrival of Yankees.

--About thirty Yankee prisoners arrived in the city yesterday, via Petersburg cars. They were captured in squads at various places — some on the Blackwater river, in Southampton county, some at Zuni Station, and a few in North Carolina. They were carried to General Winder's office and thence to the Libby prison.--The prisoners here are very anxious to be off, and our Government is equally solicitous to get rid of them; but going is out of the question until they are sent for.

Last night Lieut. Pearson, of the 1st N C cavalry, brought down on the Central railroad eighteen Yankee cavalrymen, captured at various times in Fauquier; also, two citizens (not natives) of that county, who sought employment of the Yankees, and were found working on their breastworks.
