Deserters from the Abolition army.

--Nine deserters from the Abolition army arrived at the Libby Prison yesterday. They were members of Delaware and New York regiments, and gave themselves up at Harrison's Landing, on James river, Gloucester Point, Smithfield, and Tappahannock. As a matter of course, these parties are tired of the war. There are now about 80 deserters from the Federal army in the Libby Prison. First L. Jos. Hornback, of company E, 1st Tenn. (Abolition) cavalry, who was captured at Murfreesboro', Dec. 31st, was brought to the prison on yesterday.
