More prisoners.

--The Central train brought down yesterday fifteen prisoners from Manassas, sixty-seven from Gen. Lee's command, and one man arrested as a spy, and sent hither from Huntersville. Quite a crowd gathered around Gen. Lee's prisoners, these being the first sent down by him, and some persons entered into conversation with them. One of our German citizens amused the by-standers very much by his comic remarks, and enjoyed his own jokes as much as anybody else did. These prisoners are from the Northwestern States--chiefly from Ohio — and were taken in a skirmish between two Tennessee regiments, under Col. Savage, and a smaller Federal force, near Kircher's (or Crrutcher's) Orchard — a point somewhere between Big Spring and Huttonsville. They were marched to the military prison, followed by a number of curious spectators.
