Arrival of prisoners.

--Since our last issue, fifteen hundred and fifty-two Yankee prisoners, including fifty- eight officers and one chaplain, captured near Petersburg and this city, have been brought here and committed to the Libby prison and its branches. Among the officers we give the following: Colonels W. C. Raulston, Twenty-fourth New York; S. Warner, One Hundred and Twenty-first Pennsylvania.

Lieutenant-Colonel Theodore Gregg, Forty-fifth Pennsylvania.

Majors John G. Wright, Fifty-first New York; William H. Mapes, Second New York; James T. Peale, Fourth Pennsylvania cavalry, and E. S. Horton, Fifty-eighth Massachusetts.

In order to make room for a further influx of prisoners expected every hour, Major Thomas P. Turner, the commandant, of the prisons in this department, sent off to Salisbury, North Carolina, yesterday morning, eleven hundred and fourteen. Three hundred were also added to the number on Belle Isle.
