Arrival of prisoners.

--Thirty-three prisoners of war arrived yesterday afternoon by the Central Railroad, in custody of a detachment commanded by Capt. Frank M. Johnson, of the Nineteenth Georgia Regiment. These prisoners, all belonged to the Thirtieth New York, and among the number are two commissioned officers--Capt. W. L. Lanning and Lieut. James Andrews. They were captured by the Natchez Cavalry, Maj. Martin, on Saturday last, in a skirmish near Upton's Hill. Some of the enemy were killed and wounded in the affair, but our side suffered no loss.
