Transfer of prisoners.

The announcement that several hundred prisoners of war are to be transferred from Richmond to North Carolina, after suitable arrangements are made for their reception, has been heretofore made. A Government agent has negotiated for the purchase of the Chambers Factory property, at Salisbury, N. C. which is now being fitted up for a military prison. The main building is three stones. high, and has some fifteen acres of ground It was built only ten or fifteen years ago, at a cost of $60,000, but has now purchased for $15,000. Its locality is well suited for the purpose, and it is estimated that the prisoners can be subsisted here at an expense of at least 50 per cent less than at Richmond, or any of the large cities at the South.
