Yankee prisoners to have the Benefit of the shelling of Charleston.

--The Yankees continue to shell the city of Charleston, without the slightest hope of effecting anything beyond the murder of a few women or children. On Sunday night last they threw seven shells into the town.--The following paragraph from the Charleston Mercury shows that hereafter there will be something besides helpless women to hit:

For some time past it has been known that a batch of Yankee prisoners, comprising the highest in rank now in our hands, were soon to be brought hither to share the pleasures of the bombardment. They accordingly arrived on Sunday. We give a list of their names and rank:

Brigadier Generals Seymour, Wessels, Seammon, Shaler, and Heckman; Colonels T. G. Grover, to Hawkins, W. Harrismon, J. H. Lehman, O. M. Le grange, W. C. Lee, R. White, H. C. Bolinger, H. L Brown, E. L. Dana, and E. Fardell; Lt Colonels E. S Hays, N. B. Hunter, T. N. Higginbotham. G. C. Joslin, W. E. McMakin, D. Miles, W. C. Maxwell, J. D. May hew, S. Morfitt, E. Alcott, J. Potsley, A. F. Rosers, J. H. Burnham, C. B. Baldwin, W. G. Bartholimer, W. R. Cook, C. J. Dickerson, J. T. Fe lows, G. A. Fairbans, W. Glenn, T. P. Spofford, W. W. Stewart, W. Swift, A. W. Taylor, and W. P. Lascelle; Majors C. H. Bures, W. F. Baker, E. W. Bates, J. E. Clarke, D. A. Carpenter, W. Crandad, H. D. Grant, J. Hall, and J. N. Johnson.

These prisoners, we understand will be furnished which comfortable quarters in that portion of the city most exposed to the enemy's fire. The commanding officer on Morris Island will be duty noticed of the fact of their presence in the shelled district, and if his batteries still continue their wanton and hazardous work, it will be at the peril of the captive officers.
