Prisoners from Beauregard's Army. – Several Abolition prisoners captured in the battle of Corinth, by General Beauregard's forces, heretofore quartered at Selma, Alabama, were brought to this city on Tuesday, in charge of Capt. Geo. W. Cary, of Alabama, and Capt. L. J. Jennings, of the 3d Louisiana Battalion, and lodged temporarily at a hotel on Main street. On yesterday, in obedience to an order from Gen. Winder, commanding the Department of Henrico, they were lodged in the C. S. Military Prison on Cary street. They may have been brought thither for the purpose of an exchange. The names given by the parties are Major W. M. Stone, U. S. A., (of Iowa), Col. Madison Miller, U. S. A., (of Missouri), and Capt. E. Gregg, U. S. A., (of Rock Island, Illinois). We could hear nothing of any existing intention to send them to Salisbury, N. C., this morning with the other prisoners.
