Prisoners arrived.

--Col. Thomas, of the Maryland Volunteers, arrived in this city yesterday via Central Railroad, bringing official accounts of an engagement between the patriot forces and Northern Abolitionists near New Creek Depot; also, two prisoners-of-war, one of them calling himself Lieutenant Colonel Bowman, of the 8th Pennsylvania Regiment, the name of the other unknown. They were conveyed before the Secretary of War, at the Custom-House building, Bank street, who, after a brief examination, discharged them on parole of honor.
