Prisoners captured

--It has heretofore been stated that a number of persons living on Hatteras Island known at bankers or wreckers) had taken the oath of allegiance to Lincoln's Government, Eight of these persons visited Hyde county week before just, for the purpose of disseminating certain proclamations issued by the Lincoln commander at Fort Hatteras. They were captured and held as prisoners by Captain Hall, who commands a company of the 7th Regiment stationed in Hyde. On one of the prisoners a letter was found from the preacher Taylor, who, it is said, assisted the Lincolnites in making a landing on Hatteras Island. The letter was addressed to his brother-in-law in Cumberland county, in which county Taylor married, and, we think, formerly lived.--Taylor says that he and others were obliged to take the oath of have their property destroyed. A poor excuse, The letter shows that Taylor is now a regular Lincolnites sympathizer.
