--For the past two days the trains from Petersburg have been mostly occupied in bringing to this city the Yankee prisoners which were captured near Petersburg on the evening of the 19th instant.
The whole number received at the Libby up to last night footed up over twenty- five hundred, including upwards of seventy-five officers, whose names will be found in another part of this paper.
