Arrived at last. --About 319 of the 600 and odd Yankees said to have been captured by our troops in the fight near Williamsburg on Monday, arrived here last evening under a guard of cavalry, commanded by Captain R. A. Caskie, and were lodged in the C. S. Military Prison. The prisoners marched in the centre of a hollow square, and owing to the accumulation of dust did not have a very presentable look. When coming up Main street they were allowed to buy such articles of provisions as they stood in need of. Bread was eaten with an avidity that showed the parties appreciated it. We believe no on one jeered at them while passing to the prison. Those who witnessed their advent seemed disposed to treat them with silent contempt.

Handsome Sward for a Gallant officer. --We saw yesterday a very handsome and service able cavalry sword recently presented to Lieut. --Col Robert A. Caskie, by the officers and men of his old company, the Caskie Rangers. On the front of the blade are the words: "Presented to Col. Caskie by the officers and men of the CaskieCol. Caskie by the officers and men of the Caskie Rangers;"on the reverse, the motto, " Audaces Fortuna Juvat."The sword was made by Boyle &Gamble, of Richmond. Col. Caskie recruited the company, since named after him, in this city in 1861. It has seen as hard service and done as much hard fighting as any organization in the army, and its originator has fought his way to a &Gamble, of Richmond. Col.

Mayor's Court --Recorder Caskie presiding.--Richard Bailey, a free negro, charged with committing a murderous assault upon Dr. M. Blankman, was ordered thirty-nine lashes and committed to jail in default of security for his future good behavior; Jim, slave of Charles C. Ellett, and George, slave of Richard Smith, charged with throwing stones at white children in the street, were ordered to be whipped; Ralph, slave of Sarah Tompkins, charged with cutting and stabbing Robert, a slave, was ordered to be taken to Manchester for examination, the offence having been committed in Chesterfield county; and time was allowed Samuel Struck to abate a nuisance existing on his premises. In none of the above-enumerated cases was there any evidence elicited which could interest the public, and it is therefore needless to publish it.
