Yankee Captives. --On Saturday 382 prisoners of war were brought to this city and placed in the Libby prison. Of this number 136 were officers captured about one week since by Gen. Forrest, near Rome, Georgia. There were in the batch two colonels, two lieutenant colonels, four majors, four surgeons, and three chaplains; the rest were captains and second lieutenants. The crew and officers, over 100 in number, of the gunboat Indianola taken below Vicksburg, also arrived yesterday — There are now 242 Yankee officers here, awaiting to be sent North. By the prison report, yesterday, it appears that the total number at the Libby was 640 classified as follows: Prisoners of war, 507; citizens, 13; deserters from the Yankee army, 94; negroes, 26. Fifty-six of the deserters came from Grant's army, near Vicksburg.
