The steamship St. Mary yesterday brought

member that the correspondent of "The
Er;" at 3lorganuz; in his letter published
Sunday last. nr.ticed the arrival of there
prisoners at Alexandria. and their subse
quent removal to Red River landing. The
Confederate prisoners for whom they were
exchanged having shortly arrived, the
Union soldiers were at once turned over to
Cot. Dwight, Commissioner of exchange.
They were landed at Bull's lead. from
whence they were tramsferred to the Gamp
of Distribution, tinder charge of Major
Schermerhorn. at the Louisiana Press. and
supplies were furniahed them by the Quar
termaster of Prisoners, Lieut. Edward
Reid. We were unable last night to obtain
a list of their names.
There are. we understand. about twenty
six hundred Union soldiers yet remaining
at Tyler. Texas. from whence these came.
who are all anxiously awaiting exchange.
We heartily hope they will soon be releas
ed from bondage.--N. 0. Era. 25, ult.
The following paragraph is from
the Thibodaux (La.) Sentinel, a
Yankee sheet :
Dark Prospects.-A negro having
purchased, at a veryb high price, a
license from the sheriff to keep a
drinking saloon fo,r persons of his
color, had his stock confiscated and
his establishment closed on the first
day by the Provost Marshal, but by
much talking succeeded in obtaining
perminssion to couinrltte his business.
So now we have, within our town, a
refreshing saloon expressly for ne
gro,,e where those persons can buy
whisky by the gla s. Decidedly,
