French prisoners.

--Three Frenchmen, captured from the Yankee force near Malvern Hill on Sunday morning, were brought to this city yesterday and committed to the Libby prison. They represent that they have only been on this side of the water about two months; that seventeen days ago they were inveigled into a fashionable restaurant in the city of New York by a couple of men, who afterwards turned out to be Yankee recruiting officers, where they took two drinks of whiskey, after which time they recollected nothing till three days afterwards, when they found that while in a state of intoxication they had been enlisted in the army.
