Arrival of Domestic Traitors.

Fifteen citizens of Green county, Va., arrived here yesterday, guarded by soldiers, and were consigned to quarters in Greanor's factory. The batch were sent thither by General Humphrey Marshall, for expressing Union sentiments and displaying various Yankee proclivities not consistent with their duty as citizens of the Confederate States.--The average age of the men was about nineteen years, the oldest being about twenty-four years of age. All of them are subject to the Conscript law; but it is doubtful, after the experience our authorities have had in the matter of improvising soldiers out of similar material, whether they would be of any use to the Confederacy in a military point of view.
