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
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
