More prisoners.

--The Central train yesterday brought down some twenty-four prisoners of war, captured in Western Virginia.--They were in custody of Lieut. Jordan, of Pate's Cavalry, Corporal Wm. Bethel, and seven men. The lot included ten or twelve soldiers of the ‘"Bloody Eleventh"’ Ohio regiment, while the others are Virginia Lincolnites, whose prominent trait seems to be a fondness for rags and dirt. One of the latter is a venerable sinner, who claims to be a parson, and calls himself the Rev. Thomas Jones. Being apparently sick, he was conveyed away from the depot in an ambulance, while his interesting companions were marched off to prison.
