Another Instalment of Yankees.

--A detachment from Gen. Jackson's army, brought down by the Central railroad yesterday twenty-six prisoners, sixteen Yankees and ten domestic traitors. The latter were a very squalid and miserable, hang-dog looking set of creatures. While they might have served the enemy as spies on the actions of our brave boys, they could hardly, judging from appearances, have inflicted any serious damage on the cause of Southern rights by their characters or example. Some of the Yankees were tolerably fair specimens of humanity, but in several of them the brute stuck out so far that it could not be concealed. A number of them were so Teutonic that their jargon could hardly be understood. The names of the Yankees were James Ginnis, company F, 3d Maryland; Thos. Eckles, company H, 66th Ohio; James E. Burns, company I, 14th Indiana C. Caffrey, company C, 1st Vermont, J. H. Abell, company B. 1st Vermont; John Brown, company B, 1st Vermont; C. Van Weber, company K, 39th Illinois; James Moore, company G, 1st Vermont; Carles Schultz, company F, 54th New York; Ed. Haman, sergeant company I, 58th New York; J. Leather, company K, 40th Pennsylvania; W. E. Johnson, company E, 5th Connecticut; A. Johnson, company E, 5th Connecticut E B. Sparks, company K, 39th Illinois W. A. Chapman, company H, 3d Wisconsin.

The following are the names of the citizen prisoners, and the counties from which they hail, viz; J. Light, M. Beane, and Richard Buckley, Frederick; S. M. Morrie, H. Powell, S. Collier, Greene; W. Breeden. E. F. and Beverly Brennan, Rockingham; L. Garing Page; A Heflin, Fredericksburg; James N. Wicolf, Chas. B. Guy, Wm. H. Van. Wort, Orange; Samuel King, Thos. L. Morrison, John Chattan, and Moses Morrison, Spotsylvania.
