Arrival of Yankees.
--About thirty Yankee
prisoners arrived in the city yesterday, via Petersburg
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.
