Escape and Recapture of Yankee officers.

--About two o'clock yesterday morning Major McClellan and Lieutenant Alkings, of the 23d New York cavalry, two Yankee officers confined in the Libby prison hospital, effected a temporary escape from that building.--Before discovered by the guard, they had succeeded in getting out of prison, whereupon chase was given, which was kept up until reaching the corner of 21st and Cary streets, when they were recaptured and carried back to their old quarters. During the race two shots were fired at them, one of which passed through the skirt of the coat worn by Lieut. A.
