Departure of Yankee Prisoners.—About 1 o'clock yesterday, a pretty considerable instalment of Yankee prisoners were sent from the Libby prison to Varina on James River. The cortege numbered 735 prisoners, including five Yankee surgeons, twenty officers, (Dan Ullman among the number,) three citizen prisoners and four women and a child. This leaves 212 on hand. The prison hospital, for sometime past kept at Palmer's factory, is to be moved back to the west end of the Libby building.
