The Prisons.

--An unlawful assembly of ten or fifteen negroes were committed to the lower station- house yesterday morning. Fifteen lashes each were given them by order of Chief-of-Police Reuben T. Seal, after which they were discharged.

At Castle Thunder nothing of importance transpired. A limited number of deserters were lodged therein in the afternoon.

A few prisoners, captured from Grant's army, were committed to the Libby in the afternoon. One thousand Yankee prisoners, intended for exchange, will be sent northward by flag-of-truce boat this morning.
