--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
They were marched to the military prison, followed by a number of curious spectators.
