Yankees captured.

Savannah, Jan. 17.
--Eight Yankee prisoners, captured near St. Augustine, by Capt. Lixon's guerillas, arrived this evening at Oglethorpe Barracks, Savannah under charge of Capt. E. W. Mayrs. Among the prisoners are a provost marshal and salter and three merchants. The party were mounted on borrowed horses, and were on a visit to a sugar boiling in the vicinity of the ancient city. The horses are valuable. The prisoners will be sent to General Beauregard.
