More prisoners.

--The Central train yesterday brought down four Yankee prisoners of war, captured near Fairfax C. H. Their names are Corporal Humphries, Lester Worthington, Daniel Farrall, and Thos. Murphy. They belonged to the 37th New Yew regiment and Col. Young's volunteer cavalry of Pennsylvania. The escort consisted of Sergeant Walcot and four men. The fact of their arrival was reported to Gen. Winder by Major Watts, after which they were conducted to the military prison. A free negro named Porter Smith came down by the same train, under arrest.
