The distinguished dead. --The Central train, which arrived in this city at eight o'clock last night, brought down the bodies of Col. (acting Brig. Gen.) Francis S. Bartow, of Georgia, Gen. Bernard Bee, of South Carolina, and Lieut. Col. Johnson, of Hampton Legion, who fell in the battle at Manassas on Sunday last.
