Carried to Philadelphia.

--A Philadelphia letter, (July 19,) says:

‘ Three of the prisoners taken in Western Virginia, at Falling Waters, were brought to this city last evening, on their way to Fort Delaware. One of the prisoners gave his name as John Farles, of a Virginia Continental Company, commanded by Capt. Avis; another as George Seely, of Capt. Carter's cavalry company. The third prisoner, whose name was not ascertained, belonged to a cavalry company, and, like Farles, is of Loudoun county, Va. The prisoners are young men, two of them not being apparently more than twenty years old. The one attached to the infantry corps said that his company had Minnie rifles.
