The Abolition Prisoners. – Seven Abolition prisoners arrived at the Libby Prison yesterday. They were sent down by the Provost Marshal of Gordonsville, having been taken in custody at various times and places by Gen. Hampton’s cavalry. Three of the men belonged to a New York cavalry regiment; two to the 20th Indiana regiment; one to the 2d battalion U S Regulars, and one to a Pennsylvania cavalry regiment. Owing to the non-arrival of the boat, none of the prisoners will start for City Point this morning.
