Negro soldiers.

--Four negro soldiers, dressed in full United States uniforms, were brought to this city and lodged in the Libby prison on Sunday night last. These negroes were captured on the 2d of March, near Williamsburg, and were attached to Butter's infantry command, who were on their way to cover Col. Dahlgren's retreat. Maj. Turner, in command of the prisoners in this city, very properly placed them in the same cells in which the officers captured among the raiders were confined. The following are their names: Privates Jas W Corn, co C, 5th U S vols; P F Lowis, co I, 5th U S volge R P Armistead, co H, 6th U S vols; John Thomas, co H, 6th U S vols.
