General items.

--The Central cars yesterday brought down, besides a number of passengers, &c, 27 of the Georgia soldiers who were released by Gen. McClellan. Col. John Pegram was carried to Washington and ordered to be confined in Fortress Monroe by General Scott. He is now there. There are at Staunton 150 more of the Rich Mountain prisoners waiting to come down. One hundred hogsheads of bacon taken from the abolition forces last Sunday were marked "Richmond, Virginia," and some of the packages had "Capitol Square" written on them — The Lincolnites no doubt thought they would go right through without let or hindrance.--A number of our wounded men brought down last evening were carried to the houses of private citizens for nursing. Two trains arrived, the second bringing the wounded. A third was expected last night with Yankee prisoners to the number of five or six hundred. The prison depot is already full. Among the lot of rubbish brought here Tuesday night, were 65 Yankee officers, including one Corcoran, who commanded the 69th N. Y. Regiment, which was somewhat demoralized Sunday by the "rebels."
