From Harper's Ferry.

--Two car-loads of negroes arrived in this city yesterday, by the Central Railroad, direct from Harper's Ferry. Included in the number were men, women, and children. They are the property of citizens of Virginia living in the vicinity of the Ferry, and are part of those found with the Yankees after their capitulation to the forces of Gen. Jackson. Their masters propose to offer them for sale in Richmond, not deeming them desirable servants after having associated with the Yankees.
