GENERAL FLOYD’S PRISONERS.

It is understood that the Yankees captured by General Floyd's command, near the Kentucky boundary, will arrive here to-day by the Danville train. They will be held, as already stated, under State authority, as hostages for the release of Col. Zarvona, the gallant man who captured the St. Nicholas. Under the direction of Gov. Letcher, quarters have been prepared in the State Armory, corner of 7th and Cary streets, for the close accommodation of two hundred.
