Arrival of prisoners.

--Upwards of five hundred Yankee prisoners were brought to this city on Saturday and committed to the Libby prison. Among the number was Brigadier-General McLaughlin, of New York, and fifteen other officers. These prisoners were captured near Petersburg in the fight which occurred there about 4 o'clock on the morning of the day upon which they reached Richmond, and from the large number who were intoxicated when they arrived, we should think that they had been well plied with whiskey before going into the fight.
