S. Prison at this point was busily engaged in preparing food for them. Among the prisoners at Lynchburg is the 1st (Yankee) Maryland regiment, captured at Port Royal by Gen. Jackson’s forces. By 9 o’clock this morning the whole 3,000 Yankees, lately at Lynchburg will have arrived here, as they were started towards this place yesterday.
