Escape of Prisoners at Richmond.

At about 2 o'clock on Sunday morning seven prisoners broke out of jail at Richmond Virginia. N. Sunderland, convicted of killing P. Colbert, and sentenced to the penitentiary for 16 years, and four alleged pickpockets, named Slaven, McCafferty, Bowen and Jackson, made good their escape, but two other prisoners named Heath and Lipscomb were recaptured.
