MORE PRISONERS.—A special train arrived here Saturday at 1 o’clock, P.M., bringing 150 more yankee prisoners, chiefly officers, it is said. Some of them are fine, well to do looking men. Others again seem to be of the ragtag and bobtail kind.
It is reported upon pretty good authority we believe, that our Government has determined to parole all the privates confined in the prison at this place, and send hither from Richmond, all the Federal officers held as prisoners, and that this measure will now be executed as speedily as possible. There are about 1400 privates here who will thus be permitted to return to their homes, in the North.—Salisbury Watchman.
