Brig. Gen. Prince. This officer, who was captured by our forces in the fight at Southwestern Mountain, on Saturday last, is an officer of the old U. S. army. In the Mexican war he acted as Adjutant-General of the brigade commanded by Gen. Sterling Price, whose confidence and esteem he possessed. When the present war broke out Prince was a Captain of dragoons, at Fort Leavenworth, and afterwards became commandant of that post. In his intercourse with the people of Missouri and Kansas he is represented to have acted with gentlemanly courtesy, and had the respect of those who opposed the policy of his Government. Such was his leniency towards the Confederates in Missouri that he incurred the suspicion and ill will of such tyrants as Siegal, Lane, &c. These facts we obtain from an officer connected with Gen. Price's staff during his celebrated Missouri campaign.
Arrival of prisoners from Pope's army. --The Central train that arrived at 4 o'clock yesterday morning brought to this city three hundred and three of Pope's Hessians, captured on Saturday, near Southwest Mountain, by the advance forces of Gen Jackson's army. Accompanying the above were Brig-Gen. H. Prince, a Yankee General, and twenty seven commissioned officers, who, together with the men, were lodged in the Libby Prison. Prince, for a few hours, was lodged at the Exchange Hotel. The President's recent proclamation declared Pope and his commissioned satellites to be without the usages of warfare, and not entitled to the privileges of ordinary prisoners of war Orders were issued to place all of the captured officers in close confinement. At the Libby Prison they were put with the deserters and other persons to whom infamy attaches. An examination was made into the condition of the county jail, with a view to their incarceration there; but the structure was deemed unsafe.
