YANKEE PRISONERS. - One thousand five hundred and fifty two Yankee prisoners were registered at the Libby prison on Sunday afternoon and yesterday. Among the number were fifty-eight officers and one chaplain. They were the results of the different engagements which have occurred between the opposing forces around Petersburg and Richmond, for the past day or two.

Eleven hundred and fourteen were sent to Salisbury, North Carolina, yesterday, in order to make room for other prisoners expected to arrive here.
