Arrival of prisoners.

--The Central train yesterday afternoon brought in another lot of Federal prisoners from Western Virginia--Three of them are deserters from the 15th Indiana regiment--an Irishman, a Scotchman, and a Kentuckian. They came into our lines bearing a ‘"flag of truce,"’improvised for the occasion from the rear portion of the Irishman's shirt. This Irishman, by the way, is a rollicking sort of a boy, and the novelty of his situation yesterday seemed to afford him much merriment. The other prisoners, fourteen in number, are Union men, or Lincolnites, from Hardy and Pendleton counties.--They came from Staunton in custody of Col. Turk, H. W. Sheffey, Richard Hardy, Philip Trout, and J. M. McCue, of Augusta.
