Arrival of Prisoners. – Seventeen Abolition prisoners of war, mostly members of the 10th New York regiment, were received at the Libby Prison yesterday, from Fredericksburg, Va., having been captured in the vicinity of that place. Of this number four—viz: One belonging to the 98th New York, one to the 6th U. S. cavalry, and two to the 139th New York--professed to be deserters, and not to desire to go North again. Last night, three Abolition prisoners, captured on Saturday near Cook's store, 2˝ miles from Gloucester Point, arrived at the above prison. There are now about 500 in confinement there, half of whom are subject to exchange or parole as prisoners of war.
