--Brig.-Gen. August Willock, of the 1st brigade, 2d division, of Rosecrans's army, and 64 other commissioned officers, part of the proceeds of Bragg's encounter with the Hessians at Murfreesboro', Tenn., arrived in Richmond at a late hour sunday night, and were lodged in the Libby prison.

Among the commissioned officers taken with the men, and brought to Richmond were Capts Pat Kane, T. A. Byrnes, John H. Struthers, John Kline, N. S. Sneydand J. J. Bowers, and Lieuts Jos. Roberts, John O Riley, Lew McMakin, S. S. Readson, and Jas. Clarke, all of Pennsylvania cavalry regiments. There are now about 120 Abolition officers in the Libby prison.
