Yankee prisoners.

--One hundred and thirty Yankee prisoners, captured near Petersburg on the 10th instant, were brought to this city yesterday and committed to the Libby prison. Among the number was a Captain J. M. Wallace of the Third Delaware, and his first lieutenant; the first of whom, a ruffianly, brazen fellow, conducted himself in the most disgusting manner while waiting in front of the chief-of-police office. In the course of his insulting remarks he made use of the vilest language towards our ladies, and said that he hoped the time would speedily come when all of them at the South would be draped in mourning over the deaths of murdered brothers, fathers and husbands.
