From Norfolk. Paroled prisoners — a schooner abandoned--fifteen thousand Dollars sunk with her — Commercial meeting — Portsmouth Baptist Association, &c. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Oct. 2d, 1861. Fourteen of the Confederate soldiers who were taken prisoners at Rich Mountain, and who have been released on parole, arrived here last evening. They arrived at Old Point yesterday from Baltimore, having reached that city via Columbus, Ohio, on Monday. Several of these brave men are badly wounded, some five or six being compelled to use crutches. One of them, whose name is John A. Taylor, lost his right leg, which was amputated close to the hip joint. His left leg was terribly mangled, but will probably be saved. I learn that he fought with most desperate and reckless bravery at one of the guns of the gallant Captain Delagnel. Taylor states that there were about a dozen of his comrades who had their legs amputated, and that all have died. <
