Arrival of prisoners. --During Saturday and yesterday Yankee prisoners, captured mostly in straggling squads from the north side of James river, were constantly coming into the city under the escort of Confederate guard. The number booked at the Libby yesterday afternoon reached considerably over a hundred, and when we last visited that prison the officers attached thereto were hourly expecting an arrival of five hundred more, taken by Gen. Wade Hampton in his encounter with Sheridan at Trevillian's, one day last week. It has been previously reported that these prisoners were carried to Lynchburg; but since then it has turned out that, in consequence of the movements of Hunter, it was unsafe to continue on with them to that place, and they were therefore taken to New Canton, a point on the James River and Kanawha Canal, and from thence shipped in four freight boats to this city.
