More Hessians.

--On Saturday night a batch of thirty and odd Hessians were brought down the Central railroad from the army of ‘"Stonewall Jackson,"’ and lodged in prison here. They were not very prepossessing in appearance. One of them, a gray-haired old sinner, said he was nearly eighty years old No doubt his abolition fanaticism bucked him up.

Yesterday fourteen Yankee prisoners and one negro, taken at Flint Hill, on the Rappabannock; arrived here, and were consigned to the Military Prison, on Cary street. These prisoners were captured. by part of General Johnston old army of the Potomac.
