ur force, now under the command of Col. McCauseland, has fallen back to Christiansburg, in Montgomery county, eighty miles west of Lynchburg. Arrival of prisoners at Lynchburg. Forty-four officers and 891 privates, captured by Gen. Lee at Parker's Store, on Thursday last, arrived in Lynchburg Saturday afternoon. Among the officers are one Colonel, two Majors, fourteen Captains, and twenty-seven Lieutenants, representing 20 regiments — from Maine, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan, and Indiana. Two or three of them belong to the regular army. Many of these officers were captured in the fights around Richmond in 1862, and were recognized by Lieut. Shihn, Assistant Provost Marshal in that city, who; once had charge of them on Belle Isle. The officers and privates all belonged to the fifth corps commanded by Hancock. They are described as a decidedly genteel set of Yankees, and conducted themselves while passing through the streets with more propriety than usual.
